“Great quiet hotel very well located”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We spent an extended weekend there and it was always quiet (staff told us it can be different though). The pool is great with a fantastic view at the mountains. Because of the river bed behind the hotel the pool area is quiet and secluded which is great. During our stay we had the pool often for ourself which was fantastic.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was great. The only negative point was the internet connection which didn't always work, but wifi is free which is a plus.
We would for sure stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night in September 2013.

Check in was fantastic and the lovely lady upgraded our room. We got upstairs and had a large room which was clean. One of my kids sat on the bed and it squeaked. Every time someone moved it squeaked.

The air conditioner was noisy but the reason I have given this hotel a poor rating was that I woke at 3.30 am to a horrible smell like aviation fuel or similar. I opened the door and couldn't smell it outside but the smell was horrible inside. I couldn't open a window without waking the children up. I spent the night laying there hoping that smell would go away and it didn't. Having a long drive ahead of me that day on little sleep was awful.

Breakfast was nice, and being included was a bonus.

We didn't use the pool but it looked nice.

We stayed her when coming from Los Angeles, driving through Palm Springs (past the enless fields of windmills), the night before we would continue our journey to Las Vegas via the Joshua Tree National park (and 29 Palms).
It is a very new and modern hotel at the end of the village, with a very nice (and refreshing) pool.
Rooms were good, breakfast also good, and there was plenty of parking place in front of the hotel.
We had diner in a nice Asian restaurant on a few minutes walking from the hotel.
This is a great place to stay when you intend to visit the Joshua Tree National park.

They offered a good, free breakfast, quiet room & location, good service. I was upgraded to a suite due to Holiday Inn Rewards status. The room lent it's self to getting some work done before turning in and the AC was cold... Nice fitness center to boot. I recommend this place and will stay here again. Hilton Garden Inn is my usual place due to cooked to order healthy breakfast and option fopr dinner there if you can't get out.

Room Tip: Ask for what you want and they will work with you to get a good room,

I really needed to get away. I have been working and traveling taking care of family and friends and my girlfriend and I needed an escape. So we decided to head to the desert for a little R&R, people watch, and enjoy the tranquility of the desert. The place was really nice, the breakfast was better than I had expected as well. The young man that assisted us, I think his name is Wayland or Wayne something with a W. (not really good with names) He provided excellent customer service and was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. I took him up on some of the suggestions and this place that had a great date shake. It was a very pleasant stay and we definitely will be back.
