I found this location on Hotels.com. I was impressed with how clean and modern the room was. Breakfast was very good. Location was close to restaurants and shopping. Nice pool and hot tub. Very quite neighborhood surrounding the hotel.

I had never been in ANY hotel that had wood floors! No kidding. Nice throw rug in between the beds and that was the only carpet surface. I guess because of all of the sand in the area? We stayed here for four nights and everything was good. Some noise one night - but that was the only negative. The...

We stayed three nights at this hotel and I will choose another hotel next time I am in town. The moment we arrived in the room I noticed it smelled like a dirty dog had been in there. I immediately called the front desk about the stench and they did not seem care. That attitude seems pervasive at the front...

We needed a place to stay 1 night and reserved here primarily because of an IHG points promotion. We found our third floor room to be very dated, though partially remodeled, clean and inexpensive. The only way we could get the wall mounted HVAC unit to stop blowing was to unplug it. The mattress was brand new and comfortable. Had...

We were in a toss up between this hotel, or the Motel 6 in Indio. We went with this hotel just for the complimentary breakfast and we were not disappointed! The breakfast was delicious, and they were constantly bringing out fresh bacon, sausage, eggs, cinnamon rolls, etc., etc. One thing that really stuck out was that the manager extended breakfast...

Whoever designed the rooms here should design rooms for all Holiday Inns from now on. Not only is the look more modern but functionality and convenience is maximized. I will attach photos. The small table by the couch is light so it can be moved easily. There is a unit along one wall that has desk, armoire, and platform for...

Stayed at this hotel from April 7-11th inclusive. Everyone and everything was great. NO this is not a 5Star resort but we didn't pay for one either! Rooms were snug but very clean. Breakfast was good pool was clean and hot tub was hot! We realized that we were pretty much in the middle of all the action. A quick...

We have stayed at this hotel several times. The have recently remodeled and the breakfast serving area is very congested but the eating area has actually improved. Our room was very strange.

We usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Cathedral City but they raised their rates for the weekend we were going to be there. This Express had a reasonable rate. I read that they had been under renovations. The lobby was completed. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the "mid-century modern". Maybe because I lived it and didn't like...
