My husband and I decided to take a quick overnight to Palm Springs. We chose this place because it accepted dogs, had a pool/jacuzzi and a decent number of amenities. This really isn't a hotel although it seems to be advertised that way. It is more of a vintage style motor lodge/motel with a throwback mod era vibe. For those... More

This placed has changed drastically and definitely not for the best. My wife and I have been coming here since our honeymoon, 10 years ago. The rates were always good, but now they are so so.....We were booked for 2 nights at a place in town but there was construction and the jacuzzi was not available. We were on our... More

The hotel is in a perfect location just off Palm Canyon which is where all the shoppes and restaraunts are. The rooms are very clean..maybe a little outdated....but I can... More

My companion recommended this place! I've only driven through this property on my visits to Palm Springs, but my friend had stayed here and liked the hotel; he was right. I like how the entire property is decorated with tikis and head stones. Check-in was fast and efficient; Josi assisted me in my check-in process, and he was courteous and... More

Nice established motel type property that caters to a younger crowd. Lots of pool party action, especially on the weekends. Be sure to check out the Congo Room Restaurant & Lounge. Extensive menu of popular comfort food entrees, appetizers, salads and desserts. The bar is an especially fun place, with lots of specialty tropical drinks. Be sure to ask for... More

We booked two rooms, one for our girls and one for us (parents). Comfortable and cosy. Bathroom clean. Air conditioning easy to setup. Car parked below our room and a big swimming pool. Restaurant and bar casual and breakfast excellent (amounts around 12 dollars each for a full breakfast).

Stayed here 3 nights. Nothing fancy, but clean, safe with a great friendly staff. The pool is beautiful but a bit on the warm side. Not refreshing at all lol but again, clean with a great staff. Child friendly and a good restaurant on premise. Would stay here again.

We love this place. The Polynesian theme sets the tone for this fun and casual getaway. The staff is super friendly and are always smiling. The pool area is relaxing, the grounds well maintained. The rooms come in various sizes, always clean. We have stayed here 5 times over the past few years and have always been happy with our... More
