This is an old school hotel in Palm Springs. The rooms are clean and tidy just a tad dated. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the hotel and it was fine for the weekend. The walls are a bit thin and I could hear all movement from upstairs.

My husband I stayed here in December. Given the price, we didn't expect a luxurious hotel, so the value was overall ok. We did however encounter a problem. It had rained extensively that day and we were coming back to our room one night when my husband slipped and had a bad fall. Our room was on the ground level....

My wife and I recently stayed at this property for the second time in two years, to celebrate a milestone birthday in the desert. We love the fact that our balcony overlooked the botanical garden across the street and the hotel is a convenient drive to hiking in the Indian canyons, and is not far from downtown Palm Springs. This...

Stayed here for 2 days while exploring Palm Springs. Room: very good. No visible issues. Hot water: plenty of it. Check in: smooth. Security: no issues. Parking: good - near room. Breakfast: standard (marginally healthy "continental" fare). Pool: excellent. Clean. Not over-chlorinated. Huge hot tube to soak away the day's aches and pains. WiFi: good reception.

We stayed here on our way to LA. Got to sleep in a big room with a huge kingsize bed. Had a very good sleep there. Nice pool area, very simple breakfast in the morning. The bathroom seemed old and the shower had little pressure. Some of the furniture had ripped upholstery but nothing too major. Good for one night.

This was perfect for a long weekend in Palm Springs. Really cheap and on free trolley route with botanical gardens across the street. Nothing fancy or anything, but would stay there again if it is that cheap compared to everything else nearby.
