My partner and I had never been to Palm Springs and the city did not disappoint! This Hotel was fine, too.
We took a taxi from the airport and thought we could walk to the downtown area, since that's what my partner was told when he booked the room, but that didn't really work out so we ended up renting a car. Once we had a car we were able to go to the Albertsons a mile away and not spend all our money at restaurants. There was no food on site or anywhere nearby. With the car we were also then close enough to the canyons for a good hike.
We stayed in one of the small king rooms which was perfectly nice. Since its a small hotel we were near enough to the pool. We used the pool a couple of times, pool towels were provided though they weren't very big. Bottled water at the pool is available for purchase.
We chose this place because it had a good review when we booked it and it was (barely) within our budget.
