We stayed 7days with our pups. No mayor complaints. Easy going staff. Pool was alright. Bkfst better than other in same chain. If you have children or dogs it is great.

For the past few years we have stayed at the Best Western Plus in Palm Desert. We go to visit family. We have found the Hotel to be very clean, excellent customer service, grounds well taken care of and a great breakfast in the morning. It is very central to the things we like to do. We will be coming back.

We've stayed here the past few years while attending the Coachella Festival. Love the yummy breakfast, especially when the dining room is filled with fellow festival goers who are mapping-out their day at the festie! The Del Taco next door is very convenient if you want to pig-out after a long day of music. This past April, we took the Coachella shuttle, which boards right across the street from the hotel....couldn't be any easier. I've experienced excess noise at some other local hotels during Coachella time (which can be expected), but the Best Western seems to attract less of a rowdy crowd, making it easier to sleep, etc.

It is usually a race to book rooms before the hotels can raise their rates based on market conditions (which I totally understand) once the festival dates are announced/leaked. For 2013, the rates seem to have been adjusted very quickly, so we are paying around 35% more than in prior years. This dampens our 2013 stay to an extent, but nonetheless, we will probably still use the BWPPD as our home base.

I have stayed at this Best Western maybe 30 nights. The rooms are comfortable, the pool area has a quiet intimate ambiance, and the staff is friendly and professional. Last but not least, the price is right.

We had a very comfortable three night stay here. The mobility accessible room was large and had an outside patio facing the pool and courtyard. the bathroom had plenty of room to move around in. I could not pull in under the sink as the front facing of the counter extends down too far by about 3 or 4 inches. You must sit sideways to the sink and that's very awkward. The bed is about 32 inches high so I could not transfer onto it from my 22 inch high wheelchair. This problem is consistent with ALL hotels I've stayed in and definitely one that needs to be addressed by every hotel.

Thank you for taking your time to review our hotel. We use all feedback to try and better our property. We are glad that the room was nice and spacious for you to move around and the location next to the pool was to your liking. I apologize that the sink and bed are at levels in which make it difficult to use but will see what we can do in the future to be more accomidating. Thank you again for staying at the Best Western Plus Palm Desert Resort!
