The lobby is modern, well decorated and smells great. But the second floor hall is disappointing, it looks like another hotel ... there is a strange and unpleasant smell, old wallpaper and the lamps are too white, not cozy. Room 212 is the same problem. The fitness room and hot tub are great. My only suggestion: update the wallpapers... It will make a considerable difference

The lobby looks inviting. The rest looked dirty, including the room. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but it smelled a lot like smoke. The front desk said it was probably because of people smoking in the stairwells. Their stairwells had lots of cigarette butts and were filthy. They gave me a different room, but it smelled even worse.

I stayed at the High Desert Inn recently on a business. I found that it was a basic, no frills, hotel. The room was basic, generic, clean and quiet considering it's proximity to the freeway. There is an indoor pool and spa that I didn't get a chance to use along with a basic fitness room and business center with two computers. The property could use an update and I found that the wi fi was totally inadequate for my needs, but if you are looking for basic accommodations, this would be a good fit for your needs.

The gentleman who checked us in was very polite and professional. Lobby looked descent. We stayed in rum 329 and it was a normal room. Very outdated. Smelled like they used a ton of cheap air freshener in the room. We could smell faint cigarette smoke. I think it used to be a smoking room and still can smell it a little, not bad. This hotel is close to the freeway, and there is an Albertsons and fast food across the street.There is a pool and workout room, but we didn't use them.

Nice room with very comfortable beds. Very clean and great ventilation. Very quiet. The only criticism which we both thought was very minor was the television was small and a bit dated. I would recommend staying here. Thank you for your helpful vote.
