“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The staff at the front desk were very nice and check in was pretty quick. They have redone the rooms and the beds were comfortable. Didn't use the pool at all and the restaurant was still not up and open. For the value, you really can't beat the price. I would stay again!!

We booked this hotel at a short notice. Simon, one of the hotel staff, was really nice. He gave us a great rate to the room, answered all our questions about Palm spring and attractions. The room was great, met our needs.

Nothing Better than walking in to a hotel and seeing a friendly face with an outstanding welcoming attitude. The front Desk Employee I believe she said her name was Alisha was very kind she checked me in to my one night stay room. Quality of the hotel I'm not gonna complain because i only stayed one night and left next morning wasn't too long around to give out a review, but enough to say that the staff was very nice.

I was upgraded by Rocio to the King suite, which is HUGE! I wish I were staying more days to enjoy all the space. This is a cute hotel with old school tiki feel. It has a pool, shuffleboard, a gardens, and gym. I paid less than the Motel 6 next door. This is also in a nice location, just being 2 hotels down from the Ace hotel. You can walk to 2 major shopping centers just down the road.

It's the biggest pool, and HEATED, in all of Palm Springs, with spectacular mountain views and beautiful gardens with the Tiki Hut atomosphere. The rooms are shabby, smell of pets, and have a lot of dog damage- chewed furniture, etc. The staff are also ambivalent, even though the place has faced financial troubles for years- they just don't seem to care. I go when it's less than $49 a night only, however. The economy in Palm Springs is awful- if the pool isn't your thing, I would not recommend this place for any other reason. There is world-class hiking in nearby Indian Canyons.

On arrival staff was very polite and gave us that "home" comfort feeling. Chaz and Aliece were cheerful and even upgraded my boyfriend and I to a suite since we were celebrating a anniversary. Great recommendation for brunch at Pinnochio's, though parking was difficult to find. pool and spa were nice, but internet was slow. Great rate! Would stay again

I booked this hotel on fairly short notice. Pretty disappointed after reading the previous reviews. Old hotel, semi-updated. Pretty hokey decor, nothing to write home about. Everything was clean, that was nice. But, for the money, I expected much, much more. Not impressed.
