“really nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I loved this hotel. Very friendly staff. Rooms very clean and spacey. If you are ever in the area I would recommend this hotel. You wont find a better place with a affordable price. Wish could have stayed longer.

The rooms seem to be recently redone, with wood laminate floors. Still a faint "old musty" odor going on. It was quiet. My back was a little sore when I got up. Best thing about the hotel was the hot, cook to order breakfast.

Clean and comfortable. Room has a balcony where we could sit and enjoy. The pool was great and that's where we spent most of the time. A nice weekend trip and having a Groupon voucher made it very affordable, basically two nights for the price of one!

This location is great if you want to get to El Paseo for shopping or eating. It you are just wanting a place to stay along the I-10 it is not located there so it is not a quick on/off location for that purpose.
It is located right across the street from a Holiday Inn Express(not pet friendly) and we needed pet friendly location. The pet fee was only $10.
I am thinking that the renovations to this old BW were probably done because of the HIE. Whoever decided on the hardwood look floor rather than carpet made a great choice. I had the sense that the room was cleaner just because of the lack of carpet.
The bedding is updated and the beds comfortable.
The bathroom is just average--updated but nothing great.
We were on the ground floor which was nice because we also had a sliding glass door with a sitting area overlooking the courtyard.
There is a breakfast (cooked to order) that is included and was great.
The only thing is that the landscaping needs help as it was muddy getting from the car to the rooms.

Ok, so usually we don't rave about hotels in this moderate price category. This hotel in Palm Desert (at the Indian Wells border), however, nailed it. Clean, comfortable, quiet, great location (Starbucks right across the street, El Paseo a two minute car ride, gorgeous mountain view from the hotel, etc, etc) and all at a majorly great price. The staff was professional and friendly. Whatever we needed, they got done efficiently and with pleasure. This particular hotel is a gem.
