“Good Accommodations in Palm Desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a very clean hotel with all of the necessities. Staff is friendly and professional. Great, economical place to rest while enjoying the life in the desert. The hotel is right of I-10 and convenient to all of the surronding areas of Palm Springs. We used this hotel as a bed & breakfast while we visited friends in Sun City.

We stayed for one night - 2/20/2013. The air conditioner would not work - it would start but it did not maintain the temperature. The in room coffee pot did not work.
You could hear the trains going by in the night.
Breakfast in the morning was meager. I would look for another place to stay - it is not worth the money.

This was the second time staying here. We showed up late at about 11pm with two sleeping kids. It took only a minute to check us in. The staff was very courteous and efficient.
The room was very clean and we enjoyed the layout of the suite. Plenty of room for the kids and everyone got a good night sleep.
The breakfast was convenient and the dining area and breakfast bar were kept spotless. The staff took pride in their work and it showed.

I was expecting a satisfactory stay but nothing fancy....boy was I surprised at how clean, nice smelling, well decorated, large rooms, and comfy beds there was. The check in was friendly and caring. The breakfast buffet was great and served early, so we could get on the road.
The hotel was conveniently located across from a nail spa so we got mani, pedis. It is close to restaurants and shopping. I wish the price was about $30 cheaper, but still, I was happy, and will stay there again.

Room Tip: The third floor has the least noise.

When we checked in we asked for a room away from the railroad tracks and away from the freeway. We disconnected the refrigerator in our room and didn't turn on the air conditioner so they wouldn't incessantly recycle all night. We were looking forward to a long, quiet, relaxing night and sleeping in the next morning. We didn't hear the train or freeway all night. What we heard was the three air conditioning condenser units for the whole hotel, outside our window, going on and off all night long. We were on the second floor and I can't imagine what the racket was for the ground floor room. THEY SHOULD NOT RENT THESE ROOMS!!! Needless to say, we were up and out at 6:00 am. If you stay here look out your window and make sure the hotel air conditioning units are not outside your window.

We were more than happy with our stay at this hotel. The staff was very kind, welcoming and helpful. Very clean hotel. The pool was warm and inviting. We enjoyed a very relaxing swim at night under the stars. The breakfast was filling. Eggs, meat, belgian waffles, cereals, bagels, danishes and muffins. Beautiful area with restaurants and stores within walking distance.

The Comfort Suites in Palm Desert is about an average version of the chain. If you've stayed at a Comfort Suites before, this one is fairly similar to them all.

I liked the new power outlets including USB charging station in the room. Makes charging all the miscellaneous gear quick and easy.

Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet despite the relative proximity of the freeway.
The shower was not OK, I'd set a temperature and over the course of the next minute or so it would migrate toward scalding hot, requiring another adjustment followed by another gradual temperature increase. OK if you like short showers, I guess.

Breakfast was the standard fare (self waffle, scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage) but definitely on the plus side breakfast was ready to eat by about 5:40am even on Sunday, very beneficial since I needed to be on the road by 6am each day.

Overall, comfortable and adequate but nothing to stand out.

Dear Christ0fu,

Thank you for being a valued guest. Although we are conveniently located near the 10 Freeway, the building was engineered to reduce outside noise level to a minimum. We rarely receive challenges from outside noise and guests are quite happy with the accomodations. I'm sorry to hear that you had an issue with the shower water temperature. I'm not sure if you mentioned this to the front desk, as we would have loved the opportunity to attempt to fix the problem. As for breakfast, the normal breakfast time starts at 6:00am, but we know occasionally there are guests that need to leave earlier. We try to be accomodating and flexible with times as we know this is very important to our guests. In the event the request cannot be accomodated, we offer complimentary Grab it & Go breakfast bags starting at 4:00am.
Once again, thank you for providing your feedback and we look forward to your next stay with us.
