I stayed in this dump for a weekend. The room was filthy and there were numerous things wrong with it. I tried to get in touch with the manager but he did not return my call. I will never stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 weeks last December and I liked it! I found a clean room, kitchenette amenities, free wi-fi and more, for a fair price. I also found the staff helpful, friendly. They were very accommodating. As long as you don't arrive at Desert Lodge thinking (or acting like) you're at a Hyatt Regency, (as apparently some people... More

the only good thing i can say about the motel is that the pool area is clean and looks nice. the office and rooms smell like cigarette smoke. manager is unreasonable and must not car about the conditions of the rooms, especially the nasty shower stalls. some rooms have a microwave and fridge. wifi worked well. so if you can...

This is the worse hotel I have ever seen. As soon as I checked in, I called hotels.com and cancelled my reservation. It was filthy, run down and just plain disgusting. I wouldnt even put my purse down on the bed. The bathroom door had a hole in it like someone kicked it in. The window in the tub was... More

I stay several places throughout the year and most places are tolerable depending on the circumstances. This is the only hotel EVER that I have refused to stay in. The only room available was 40 miles away in Hemet and we gladly drove there. This place should be burnt to the ground or bulldozed. There is a startling number of... More

When we showed up, we were quoted a rate that was $20 higher than what we booked. The manager (I assume that's who we was from his grandiose attitude) was rude and condescending. The place appears great from the outside, but the rooms are dirty and not stocked well with basic necessities (towels, etc). Definitely would not stay here ever.... More

Had a last minute job assignment in Palm Springs and because of some kind of an event, this was the only place I could find within my company's price range with a vacancy. I had heard that this place was not too great, but it was way beyond that expectation. First of all, the lobby where I checked in was... More

We booked this hotel last minute through hotels.com. The rate was better than those other hotels in palm springs and we just needed a place to sleep. I was surprised that at that rate the room was well maintained and clean. It is probably due to the new management. They were very nice at the front desk and when we... More

the room is clean large and comfortable freshly painted with the modern appliances I would recommend it to anyone. I found the motel to be very comfortable. the place is close to downtown about a mile with the typical free wifi and pool

We booked the hotel last minute because of Memorial Weekend, everywhere else is above $200 even your cheap motel. This hell hole was charging $175 if you walk in that Fri.-Sun. The place looked pretty run down, paint is peeling off, writing on the walls, long hair in my bed, dirty bathtub, dingy carpet, phone, tv, lamp doesn't work, it... More
