The Monroe is a very nice place to stay a little pricey but very nice. The rooms were very clean and equipped with coffee server by cup (Hmmm). i think for Palm Springs they could afford a coffee pot instead of one cup at a time. They come equipped with refrigerator the Wi-Fi free breakfast at Rick's across the street... More

Hi Howard, It sounds like you had a good stay with us. In addition to the coffee makers in every room supplied with Wolfgang Puck’s excellent brand, we do have excellent coffee in the lobby 24/7. Thank you for your comments about the pool area. We hope you got to use one of our cabanas. In addition to the restaurants... More

The Monroe Palm Springs is a good example of some of the great changes that are happening in this area. Great value for the money. Great front desk and customer service. Owners are reading their reviews and are responsive to what customers want. Rooms were comfortable. Plenty of parking. Free, fast wi-fi. Breakfast across the street is a nice touch... More

Hi Suz, We are pleased about your review of our hotel. You are so right about the north end of downtown becoming the hot spot of Palm Springs. So much is changing here. The area is very trendy now with the new shops and restaurants spreading this way. We are happy to be in this great location. We are glad... More

I always look up reviews online and research before booking a room. Until now, I have yet to be disappointed. This place looked decent on the outside and when we first got to the room, however the bathroom had mysterious stains on the wall near the toilet paper roll and hair still in the shower stall and on the floor...

Second time we visited Palm Springs. First time was at a grand resort. The Monroe is certainly not a resort hotel. But it is definitely a very good motel to stay at given the location and the price. The small pool was more than adequate ..it was clean and it was heated. Noted is the pitiful shower water pressure. Personnel... More

Hi Ludwig, Thank you for your review. We like to think of ourselves as “style on a budget” so your comments were right on. We are glad you liked our location within walking distance to the center of downtown and glad you got to use the free trolley as well. Sorry about the water pressure. We will look into that....

We stayed at the Monroe for 6 nights in early March. We originally booked 3 nights and then had to add another 3 nights at the last minute when another accommodation double booked and left us stranded. I was so relieved to find out that there was no problem arriving 3 days earlier than planned We were very pleased to... More

Hi Chuck, Thank you for your review. We are so happy that we were able to accommodate you. We did put the floors in for environmental reasons and to give the rooms a more contemporary look. Currently we are working with the manufacturer to solve the problem but we are glad you got to use the slippers in the meantime.... More

Overall an OK place to stay in Palm Springs if you are on a budget. Front desk staff was friendly. Decent pool area. The room was clean and quiet. Free WIFI. You can walk to downtown but it's a little far so I only walked once then took Uber the rest of the time (I was drinking so did not... More

Hi Nancy We like to call our hotel “Style on a budget”. Next time you stay, the city has a free shuttle, Thursday through Sunday, that stops right at our front door every fifteen minutes so do you not have to take Uber on those days if you did not want to walk. Also, we do offer a lot of... More

Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel.I loved the coupons for breakfast across the street at Ricks! My family also enjoyed the snacks at breakfast time and the trolley that comes by every 15 minutes to take you into town.

We often hear that people are surprised by our hotel in a good way. You get a lot here while staying within your budget. All of our guests seem to love the complimentary breakfast at Ricks.

Stayed at the Monroe for a couple of months (on weeknights) after my work brought me out to the desert for a time. Chose the Monroe after checking out other hotel options in the area, going to see the rooms, and comparing prices. The Monroe was the best choice; it is family owned, and has a nice, "one-off" feeling (not... More

The Monroe is not a fancy hotel, but you get free parking, free WiFi and the rooms are nice and newly renovated. The free bus stops at the door so it's an easy ride to downtown. As everyone says, the breakfasts at Rick's are a huge plus. My only issue were the pillows. I'm use to sleep with a flat... More
