I want to start out by admitting the reviews were shady. I booked for the budget rate from TravelZoo. I knew $79 per night didn't get you luxury, but I always expect hot water, clean sheets and A/C. The first two rooms lacked them all - they were at least 90 degrees in temp with brown towels (that used to... More

I apologize it took us awhile to find you an acceptable room. We are in the process of changing our towels and sheets from a bone colored product to a white product as we feel the tan color appears unclean. We continue to make improvements to the property as we await our large renovation. Thank you for your comments as... More

Clean & quiet. Facility is older but is getting a full remodel over the next 9 months. Will make this place perfect. Although there are more luxurious resorts, it did the job well for the needs of our group, especially for the rate. What put it over the top was that the service was outstanding. Also, food in restaurant was... More

Pros: The rooms were clean; people were friendly. Good value. Good location. But, can't wait for the upgrades. Cons: low pressure in shower, limited restaurant hours. I didn't understand how to access the tennis, golf and/or fitness rooms.

This hotel has few guests. During the week (summer?) no restaurant, no sandwiches, no bar open; all were closed all day. I asked the desk clerk for community restaurant ideas. She couldn't remember the name of the one she likes. Nice room with a great air conditioner. Two vanloads of teenage boys got placed right near my room. They talked... More

This is a very nice resort, great rooms, huge pool, really friendly staff. It's close to Palm Springs, Palm Desert, all the resort towns, as well as Agua Caliente casino. The only negative I can think of is that the restaurant and bar close down really early, which negates having a late night cocktail before turning in - if that's... More

Nice room but the shower didn't work and we only had about 30 minutes to be ready for an event. I accidentally left my dresses hanging in the closet so called the resort.

Myself and some friends stayed here on the last night of Coachella so we only needed a place to sleep and shower nothing more. The place is dated. Looks like its straight out of the 90's.

We booked our room through Hotwire and was told that there would be a $15 resort fee we would have to pay upon arriving. It ended up being $17.25. I have no idea what this covered. They had a pool but it wasn't anything special that would constitute having a resort fee. I know that the hotel is going to... More
