Stayed here for four nights when the Ace was booked out and was pretty happy with it as an inexpensive backup option. Room was a good size, pretty quiet and clean (though dated and a bit faded). It's not the classiest place in town, but it did the job. The pool was nice (and WAY less busy than some others,... More

It's great to see a survivor from the 1960s that has been converted into another look-alike corporate chain eyesore. The room was clean and had nice bedding. For me, the pool is the best feature. Check it out at night with the torches ablaze. The front desk person was friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I planned a stay-cation in our home valley and chose this hotel. It was kitschy and older, but our room was clean and well-portioned--but the carpet needs replacing. We received great customer service and enjoyed our stay. The only problem was that the bathroom door didn't open all the way due to toilet placement. Other than that,... More

Have stayed at this property many times, but no more! The pool area and grass are great. The bed is comfortable. BUT----- Room type requested with advance reservation not provided and so-called "upgrade" was anything but. Room falling apart, shower not draining, blinds not working, hooks broken, toilet seat falling off. This property needs a serious overhaul. Management and front... More

Chaz took care of our concern with the first room assigned to us. He was professional, friendly, and offered suggestions for things to do in Palm Springs. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The pool was inviting, plus the have a lift chair for people in wheel chairs at the pool. At check out Caroline was very pleasant... More

MY worst hotel experience ever. It is old and run down, the air conditioner is as loud as a train, the pillows are completely flat, and worst of all the bedbug bites. We were so lucky they didn't come home with us. The whole town was booked up for golf tournaments and we ended up here. Never again.

Arrived by night, so we didn't have a chance to enjoy time by the pool. Our room for 4 people was spacious enough and clean. Friendly guy at the front desk. Left early in the morning, but the pool looked lovely in the daylight. If you need a place for a one night stand, don't be worry at all.

Stayed here for two nights this time, and it was just as good as the first time. The room was large and clean, and the wifi worked perfectly. Furniture is a bit dated, but still usable. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was clean and modern, nothing fancy. The pool was nice and the location was convenient. Another example of mid-century modern, the decor was dated, but not old. The theme was 1950's Polynesian. It was fun and creative. Reminder, kids ARE allowed.

I stayed here - not going to lie - just because I got a great price. I'm on a road trip and it's too hot to sleep in a car in Palm Springs. I realize sometimes it can be a gamble just getting a cheap room but we were pleasantly surprised! Beautiful location with a great view of the mountains... More
