The lobby and staff were great. Weeds in the landscaping, trash in the room was still full from last guests, and bleach spills on the sheets kind of freaked me out. The room bordered the courtyard and the pool. The A/C made the room very comfortable. I couldn't beat the price and was happy to not be paying out the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, especially since it had an adult pool. We found an offer for $47 on booking.com. There is no way you can beat that price in a city full of overpriced resorts. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was nothing special...fruit, cereal, and juice. We'd stay here again.

I was very surprised upon landing at Palm Springs and calling for the free airport shuttle, that "there is no free shuttle service provided by the hotel." This was contrary to what is listed clearly as one of the amenities on their website: thegardenvistahotel.com. So, after a $20 cab ride from the airport, I spoke to the front desk manager... More

This was the third time in 4 years that we stayed at Garden Vista. So disappointed this year. The same old tired bedspreads that were there 4 years ago...when is the last time they were cleaned? Immediately, we took the bedspread off and threw it on the corner of the dirty couch. Floors were gritty with dirt. I have to... More

We found a last minute offer on booking.com for $42.99. For such an awesome location, no way in Hell can you beat this place, especially at that price. The rooms are large, clean and tidy. Sure its not a 4* pad as one may expect. However, at this price, we were super happy and have nothing poor to report!

Peter the desk manager was so helpful! The rooms are great. Big and clean. Even a frig and microwave. The pool was terrific. Yes the air conditioner is noisy but not that bad. Breakfast is a continental. My husband would have liked some fruit. It was quiet and I would definitely go back!

I have been coming to this hotel for 20-plus years, but probably never again. First off, what brought us back, year after year, were the amenities: spacious rooms furnished with microwaves and refrigerators, lovely manicured grounds, and most especially, the adults-only pool. Unfortunately, the place has gone downhill and slipped into disrepair. It hasn't been updated in many years, so... More

This old rebranded Shilo Inn motel could use some updating but the room was spacious and clean and for a nightly rate similar to Motel 6 ($55 + tax using the Hotels Tonight app) you also get a small but decent fitness room and a fairly nice pool and hot tub. A good option if you're on a budget.
