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

The Garden Vista hotel should seriously change hotel to motel. Our room was spacious and the beds were great, with an unbeatable price. 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

If you are just looking for a hotel to spend time at one of the two pools, then this is the place for you. The rooms haven't been updated since the 80's; no carpet; no amenities like shampoos except from a dispenser on the wall; terrible picture on the TV; smelled damp and moldy; had a table with only one...

What can I say...you get what you pay for. I needed to be in Palm Springs on short notice and this motel had availability. It's definitely a budget motel feel with a slightly higher-than-average price point. My room was dingy and in need of repair (holes in wall, broken light switches, old bathroom fixtures, stained carpet), but it was definitely... More
