We have stayed at the Garden Vista numerous times. The prices are reasonable but you get what you pay for. My short vacations are to relax, enjoy the weather and float in the pool. Of the 5 times my husband and I have stayed there the pool has been warm 2 times. I even call the front desk before we... More

It's a good location, well-designed, plenty of parking. But: The upkeep needs quite a bit to be desired. Just a few things: The room, while pretty spacious, did not look very inviting. No soap in the bathtub soap dispenser, a coffee-maker w/o coffee (they said they were out of coffee and expect a delivery soon), some power outlets did not... More

We booked a room at Garden Vista for one night -- the evening we first drove in to Palm Springs before a three-night stay at the nearby Desert Sun Resort. So the strategy was to crash here and hit the bricks around the corner and check into Desert Sun as early as they'd allow us on the property. Garden Vista... More

We stayes for a weekend and our room never got cleaned, the floors were filthy, the paint in the bathroom was rusting off, the pillow felt like there was rocks stuffed in it. All in all the... More

Booked my room thru Expedia. Paid in advance so no way out! This place is a great location and it looks good from the outside - but the rooms are a mess. Carpets stained, towels are threadbare, tile loose and bath floor buckled from water. The faucet did not have adequate water flow. No stopper in sink. I complained and... More

I stayed only one night but I felt like I was at home. Staff very helpful and charismatic. Across the street, there is a beautiful restaurant called "Billy's" which has wonderful food. Happy with this stay. I'll come back.

You know how sometimes you walk on carpet and you know it is just not clean? This whole room is lke this. There is mold at the junction of the bathroom and the floor. The carpet Is stained. There was one face cloth, no bath mat and the smallest towels ever. Not clean, not comfortable.

Older property. Large room and great pools. Quiet. Rooms amenities not always stocked (i.e.coffee,, towels, soap). Overall fine for the price. Air conditioner too loud. It was worth the price and close to the old part of palm springs where the shops and restaurants are located. Easy to find and park. If the up keep was better it would have... More

Over priced for this. Very dirty and far the worst place I ever stayed. Fridge is not working... Breakfast???? The worst coffee that you will ever try. Some bagels and thats it for $150. This place should not cost more then $50. Very old... Ugh
