Stayed 3 nights. Desert Hot Springs is a little out of the way but this place is the first hotel you come to so you don't have to drive too far from the hifhway. Older place but they have done a good job to freshen it up. Room was fine and good access to the pool area. Pool area really... More

My family of four just spent 3 nights here. We love palm springs but wanted to do more of a hiking and swimming get away. I was under the impression that this hotel was a destination in itself. So, we planned on going to Joshua Tree (about 45 min away) and relaxing and enjoying the hotel, given the description. They... More

We stayed for one night on a Saturday. At check-in, the clerk tried to charge us $24 more than in my reservation/confirmation e-mail. After showing him the e-mail, he gave us the correct rate. But not the best first impression, to say the least. One thing to note is that the place is really more of a motel than a... More

This hotel was comfortable and clean. Two nice hot tubs and a pool. Everyone must pass by the front desk to get to the rooms so it feels safe and secure. The staff was very personable. I was there for the Tour de Palm Springs bike ride so they let me put two bikes in my room. I used a... More

My family and I spent our Valentine's day here. The Hotel was fabulous and kid friendly. Our children were able to watch the movie by the pool and swim until 10pm. The room itself was great. We will definitely be Visiting again.

We found a great deal for this hotel on Groupon and decided to use it for the second leg of our recent trip. We were concerned when we pulled into the parking area, because the facade of the hotel was quite weathered with no landscaping, as we would have expected. We felt better about our choice on entering the lobby,... More

We aren't big "spa" people, so this review is based on what had value for the Palm Springs area as a whole. The hotel is pretty old, and little things like the front door to the lobby, the elevators, and the odd second and third level sliding glass doors to nowhere need to be updated or changed. The room itself... More

We found this deal through hotels.com, and the hotel was everything we could wish for. Great service, nice room, and an awesome pool area, open 24 hours. Add to that the pleasant service, and you'll have a fantastic stay!
