We enjoyed the desert lodge and it's proximity to Palm Springs. Relaxed atmosphere and nice staff. Pool and hot tub Jacuzzi, air conditioner, cable television. Also provided with an in room refrigerator. RHK

I was greeted in my room with a roach crawling along the wall. The room was filthy and I got moved to a new room. I slept with the lights on to dissuade any more animals. Uncomfortable beds, noisy AC and curtains that don't close all the way granting me no privacy.

My wife and I stayed there this past weekend the 12th and 13th just to get some private time from the kids, I have to say everything was very clean, no cigarette smell, at all even though some reviews say otherwise. We even used the air conditioner as it got a little stuffy in there, and it worked perfect, as... More
