I gotta admit, I took my chances in booking a room at this hotel, even though I've read mostly negative reviews about this place on hotels.com. Rooms were pretty cheap, so I went ahead and booked it. When I got there, you can tell that the property was in dire need of refurbishment, and guests were not that classy. Check-in... More

I would like to give a positive review of my recent visit to the Desert Lodge Hotel in Palm Springs. I found the staff to be very friendly and attentive and the hotel had a certain nostalgic charm as it was built back in 1957. This hotel is not for some high end tourist that wants a Dinner mint on... More

This place has problems lots of them. We had to be moved out of our first room because it was pretty run down for the price (big mistake) the second room was much worse. The roof of the lobby was leaking, not sure if the people working the front desk were staff or guest? Or if the sketchy characters around... More

After searching by phone and actual visits to hotels, we were desperate around 11:00 PM to get two rooms. The Desert Lodge had exactly two left. I should have been suspicious when we were charged $15.00 more than a couple that checked in just before we did. On the way to the room we noted very poor lighting, lots of... More
