We got a good deal through Hotwire who claimed this to be a three star hotel. While the outside of the hotel and lobby are very nicely appointed, our room was quirky and more like a two star establishment. Nothing special. All the rooms were supposed to be non-smoking, but ours definitely smelled like smoke. My guess is someone nearby... More

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was wonderful! Jay, the manager, was available and on-site, checking the breakfast bar, speaking with guests, and making certain all was well! We asked for the tennis court to be cleaned, and the court was blown and cleared of leaves by 10:00--our playing time!! We asked for a late check-out, and we were... More

My husband and I travel frequently and I have never written a review, but I would like to take the time to applaud this hotel. From the minute we checked in, every employee that we came in contact with was both friendly and helpful. We are tennis players and try to stay at hotels with courts. My husband went down... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at the Holiday inn express. The grounds outside are impeccable, the lobby is attractive, staff seems nice, and the room was, well, roomy. The bed was king-size and there was room for a desk and a sofa. My husband fell asleep on the sofa, watching the Olympics, so he made himself at home. Sofa=good.... More

We are a Holiday Inn "Priority Club Member" and have NEVER been treated so appallingly bad in the 5 years we have been a member. The hotel itself is OK but the General Manager, Jay Mitchell ...

I was really pleased with the quality of room and service at this hotel. The room was large (for a standard chain hotel room), with a comfortable king bed, mini-fridge and microwave. Standard tv, chair, desk, etc. The bathroom had a very nice shower and separate sink area from the toilet/shower area. The staff was extremely helpful and the free... More

We were laid over for three days over the 4th. After changing motels from palm springs, to the H.I. Express in desert palm, we were very happy. The hotel was like new. The staff could not have been any nicer to us. Everything about our stay was great. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was off the... More

Hotel entrance was slightly hard to find - drove past it the first time. Staff was very polite and nice when we checked in. Purchased room on Hotwire for $52 per night. Room was clean - no hair in the tub or stains in the carpet. The curtains were a little dirty, but nothing that made me want to leave... More

It's close to Palm Springs, the area is nice. The room was clean and roomy. The only exceptions were the dirty drapery from people going outside onto the patio and the lack of countertop/self space in the large bathroom. Where does a woman put all her stuff??? I especially liked the welcome letter awaiting me upon my arrival. I disliked... More

This hotel sits back from the main highway. It is a pretty painted hotel matching the surrounding desert beautifully. The interior is upscale also. The free breakfast included eggs, bacon ,sausage among the usual continental cuisine. But the kicker is the sparkling clean pool and jacuzzi. Our room was on first floor and we step out onto our patio complete... More
