After driving a long 24 drive from Texas, we decided on this hotel. Needing rest, we slept through the night. Starting at 0900, the fire alarm began to ring every 10 seconds or so at an amazingly high decibel level. I called the front desk to complain and they said that they were testing the fire alarm. This is the... More

Dear Xenophanes, I am sorry you were inconvenienced by the fire alarm testing taking place today. The safety of our guests, employees and property is of paramount importance to us. “Better safe than sorry” is a common expression that resumes the importance of fire drills and fire alarm testing. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience. ~Luis More

Rooms in the Palm Springs area were almost sold out for the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament at Indian Wells so didn’t expect such attentive service. Front desk agent was very accommodating regarding our request for a top floor quiet room, there was free shuttle service to the tournament, and the general manager was very hospitable.

Excellent location, friendly staff, close to shopping and a quick drive into Palm Springs. Local restaurants are very good & within easy walking distance. Parking was easily accessible and there was always space.

I was there for one night to participate in a half marathon. Upon check in I asked what time coffee would be available in the morning because I planned to leave the hotel at 5 am. I was told that coffee was available 24 hours a day. I also asked for a 4:45 wake up call. The call came 5... More

Check-in was fast and easy. The large king room had rather old-fashioned décor in red and gold tones, comfortable sofa and chair, microwave, a large mini-fridge with freezer, and good temperature control. The small balcony had two chairs and a small table. There was noise from Highway 111 if we sat on the balcony or left the sliding door open.... More

The staff here, Charlotte and Gracilia, we're absolutely marvelous. They quickly and professionally helped with some issues with our room, and then the next morning they were there at breakfast, extending more warm hospitality. The hotel is really well maintained and the landscaping adds to the ambience. Big plus is its great location.

I've stayed here numerous times over the past 5+ years and have NEVER been disappointed. Hotel staff is top notch and checkin/out is a breeze. The hotel grounds are always impeccably clean and there are more than ample luggage carts. Parking is well lit and secure. Love staying here.
