First of all, the NAME of it is very MISLEADING! We have traveled around the world and have stayed in places I would never ever return to, for not getting equal value for our money and this is one of those places. It ranks in the top 3 of the worst of the worst in our books. From the outside it looks like a very simple but average type of a Motel off the beaten track with plenty of parking in a quiet area, next door to a golf course. However, the redeeming features of the place stop right there.
The reception although efficient and friendly does not reveal much of about what is to come. They keep all doors closed everywhere and lock the back doors at the end of the building for the sake of safety. Which should be normal under any circumstances. But it should also be vented daily and regularly.
We booked in for a week, two months prior to checking in and we got a studio suite, upstairs, at the very end of the building. As we unloaded our suitcases and opened the door to the hallway, a very strong, stale, stuffy air hit our nostrills which we thought will go away with a bit of venting the place out and the use of our airconditioning. Wrong!
We had some business to attend to in various places in the Palm Springs area and there was not much of a choice at the time we booked. Unfortunately.
The smell was so bad and offensive that we asked to be relocated, which was not possible as there were no other empty rooms or suites available and they would not give our money back. So we were forced to endure that disgusting smell. During the day we were able to either leave or spend the entire time while there on our balcony or in the bathroom. But at night we had the fan going and the sliding door wide open to get rid of the smell as much as possible. But never entirely. It was the absolute worst place we stayed at during the many times we have been in Palm Springs and you can bet, we will be back to Palm Springs but never, ever to this place again.
