My wife and I came to California to see our son off for deployment. We called and made a reservation for 1 king bed. When we get there they had me sign a receipt and initial two spots he had to do with pets. We get to our room and we have 2 queen beds. We go down to talk... More

Came down to the desert for a Girl Trip and we had a great time staying at the International Lodge. The rooms are big and we had a fully equipped kitchen that was great just to have light breakfast and coffee. Very Quiet and restful while at the same time being centrally located to the Tennis Garden and nearby restaurants.... More

A girlfriend of mine was going to Palm Desert to stay with her dad and at last minute asked if I wanted to join her. Of course! Her parents have owned 2 units at the International Lodge for 30 or so years. It is in a great location. Very basic and simple rooms more like studio unit I guess. One... More

Worst experience I have ever had in a hotel. Took Dad to Palm Desert for the first time, was impressed by the pics of the hotel rooms on-line. Got to the hotel and our room was NOT what the pics showed...the shower door was off its tracks, the place was dirty (visible dirt on the lighting fixtures, etc.); no phones... More

I have stayed several times at the International Lodge. They are renovating rooms, and the newly renovated rooms are very nice. The rooms are large and bright. If you are busy and out all day or want to sit by the pool this is a good place to stay. There is Wi Fi in rooms, there are improving each time... More

Had a hard time right from the start. We were given a dump. When we complained we were shown a slightly better dump. After we started looking on the internet for another place, they offered us 2 rooms, which were way more hospitable. We decided to take those, only to find we were over-charged by 1/2. Because we couldn't "prove"... More

We needed a place near Palm Desert with two rooms so we chose the International Lodge based upon it's location, T/A reviews and the price. There were some problems at check-in that took a bit and my wife ended up in the car outside the office for about 20 minutes. During which time she noticed quite a few 'guests' she... More

Hotel is one block from main highway but very quiet. It is within minutes of most of the main attractions in Palm Desert and the adjacent towns. My room was newly remodeled and very large and nice. Reasonable rates. Manager/owner was very friendly and accommodating.

I have to preface this with the dzß $fact that the hotel.was very accommodating in helping me cancel my reservation and giving me a complete refund, but I felt compelled to make sure no one stays in the one room (at least) that appears to not have been renovated. It looks nothing like the rooms in the pictures I saw... More

Not a bad little place. I think the units are individually owned but ours was nice. The only downside is the walls are really thin. The neighbors came home at one in the morning unpacked their six pack of beer from the local shop and told bad jokes. The walls were thin enough I could make out the six pack... More
