Just off the main road and easy to find, we were checked in promptly by a nice guy and the room was large spacious with coffee making facilities, fridge and microwave. We were close to the pool which although small was quiet and nice to sit around. There is a jacuuzi too. Didn't think much of the breakfast so skipped... More

This was one of the noisiest hotels I've stayed in. Very poor insulation between walls and floors. In their defense I would say that the Prom night guests were not the most considerate guest, the police had to be called one night. I did however have to call the front desk 3 of my 4 nights due to loud TV's.... More

Dear Tukersman, I really apologize and I wish there was something to do to make everyone happy and give everyone a quiet stay, but noise is like the number one issue at hotels and we do our best to keep it under control. We get so accustomed to having just ourselves in a house that, having 260 people, all with... More

This was our first visit to Palm Desert and were very impressed the moment we drove into the parking lot at the Holiday Inn Express.

One week with three other guys on an annual golfing junket in the desert was on my bucket list. For seniors like us, a good bed with comfy pillows, a full breakfast and free parking were some of the fundamentals that did not disappoint. But what made the difference to our aching bodies playing six rounds in six days was... More

My husband and I went to a music festival and stayed here during our visit. Great room and location. The staff is really great and helpful. We arrived to their continental breakfast late and the manager arranged for us to get a little something which was really nice. We will back again!

I have stayed here twice now when attending music festivals, largely due to proximity to the festival grounds and shuttle stop. Both times I have found it to be a quite reasonable value given the demand for rooms that weekend and the room to be clean and comfortable. The breakfast was quite good as well, and the staff were very... More

Great location in the middle of town on the "main drag" which puts it near everything. We enjoyed the usual Holiday Inn good value with a nice comfy room and an acceptable breakfast. This is one of the hotel chains we can always count on.

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.

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
