The place is alright for the price. It's basically a Motel 6 with a fresh coat of paint and upgraded interiors. It still has annoying things like florescent lights with a fan that both turn on at once in the bathroom - no quiet or dim light available. It is very easy to hear people outside and in neighboring rooms.... More

This is a 're-modelled` motel which works with efficiency and charm. The staff are without fail helpful and cheerful. Special thanks to Denise who remembered our names and what we were doing on our trip. The pool and spa were a real bonus after a day sightseeing. The reception gave coffee fresh fruit and muesli bars free. Also included was... More

Overall the place is affordable and central to downtown palm springs. It's definitely a spruced up motel from long ago, but it's a good place to crash if you're in town for a weekend. There was a little conflict with a drunk guy who wandered onto the property and he punched the front desk clerk, fortunately the police arrested him... More

We stayed one night on our long trip from Santa Cruz,Ca to Tucson,Az. It was nice enough at first glance. Then you start to notice the tattered towels, the cracked shower walls...the list goes on. The light switch wouldn't work in the morning for the front half of the room which was weird. But the furniture was very nice and... More

Hi Reyna, We are glad you found our beds and furniture comfortable. We are also glad you liked our pool and cabana area. Sometimes after a wind storm during the night, the pool gets leaves and sand in it but our pool and spa is cleaned daily and our pool technician is very diligent about it, so we are sorry... More

I go to Palm Springs for work twice a month for a couple days at a time. The Monroe offers a great value. Centrally located, very good customer service, good room rates. They bought a previously-built motel and renovated it. The outside is pretty standard but the rooms were spruced up and made relevant. It's not fancy, but it's really... More

Our trip was great! Good food, good family time and the tram was amazing! The hotel was sort of what we expected for the price. The room was a bit small but worked out for us. I like the hard floors they appeared clean. The bathroom was missing a toilet paper roll holder which is a bit challenging for my... More

We were looking for a cute hotel for a girls weekend in the desert and The Monroe was great. It was significantly cheaper than a lot of hotels in the same area so we went with it. The room was great for a quick trip...standard hotel double. The decor is modern and the room was clean. The only ding I... More

Great hotel with great service and beautiful scenery.The exterior looks a bit dated but the interior is large and renovated. The breakfast coupon allows guests to get basic breakfast across the street: toast, eggs and salad, and coffee, even Travelodge has more options with no tips required. Considering the price, one would expect better breakfast.
