“Good hotel, lovely mountain view”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Stayed here for two nights. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Rooms were nice and included good size tv, coffee maker, fridge, iron/board. Bathroom was spacious and in good repair. The view of the mountains was lovely so ask for a room with this view. Enjoyed using the hot tub on a chilly night with the moon and stars above.

I stay here often for work. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and the mountain views are beautiful. Prices are reasonable for Palm Springs. The breakfast is standard Holiday Inn fare. The canal runs behind the hotel so it's quiet and the views are unobstructed.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms will avoid street noise and have good morning views of the mountains.

I have stayed at this property 3-4 times over the past couple of years, and I really like it. The staff is extremely friendly, the room prices are fair, and the hotel is located just a short distance east (or is it south?) of Hwy 111. Yes, its located behind a gas station but the views of the mountains overlooking the pool are fantastic!

As with all HIE hotels a free buffet breakfast is included which was fine (nothing too exciting here, but very nice to have). The pool area was nice and kept very clean. Recently they upgraded the rooms so they look even better, and are very comfortable. My only gripe is that they each have their own A/C and heating units in the room and the blowers make a significant amount of noise which kept us up a bit at night. Is there any way these can be moved to the outside?

Otherwise, if you are looking for a comfortable, friendly, and reasonably priced place to stay while in the desert the HIE Cathedral City is the place for you!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with a view of the mountains!

Everything about this place was great! The staff was friendly, the pool facilities were excellent, comfy bed. I would recommend trading out the showerheads as ours spat a little bit, but otherwise everythign was fine. The (FREE) breakfast was really good, as was the coffee. Thanks, HI, we had a great time!

Room Tip: Snag one on the west side, good views of the hills and the pool.

Just a one night stay booked through Hotwire, but we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Rooms at the back have mountain views and the location is convenient. Good to have a breakfast room with plenty of seating, rather than being squashed in the lobby as in some hotels. Hot tub was great after a day on our feet and plenty of space around the pool.

The excellent customer service from Marea at the front desk alone makes us want to return. Great location for what we were in town for. Very nice and clean rooms we decided to stay an extra night. We had to change rooms but Marea gave us a suite which was right across the hall. She also found us a discount for it.

I stayed here in November 2012 along with a huge group of my family members as we were in town to celebrate an 85th birthday. As the place where we had the party shut down before 11, we all went back to the hotel and they were nice enough to allow us to use their breakfast room area to continue our get together. It may not be a 5-star hotel, but we certainly found it quite adequate.
