On a recent trip to southern California, I stayed at the Miracle Manor in Desert Hot Springs. I have been to the town several times before but this was my first stay at this property. Like most places in the area it is a 50's style motel with a natural hot mineral water pool. There were several downsides to my stay; the price was slightly higher than what i usually pay at superior places, so i wasn't happy with the inferior accommodations. The room was very warm (the days were in the 90's) and there was no air-conditioning, the very thin window coverings did little to block out the lights outside my room that remained on all night making it difficult to fall asleep. The property seems to be going thru a renovation, when i asked about that i was told it was a continual process. The place seemed abit shabby. Walls were being painted and a strange contraption was built over part of the pool as an enclosure, not very scenic. Breakfast is included with the room, but that too was a disappointment, stale breads, cereal, yogurt, and a few pieces of fresh fruit were on offer. The rooms were furnished with cheap pieces of retro-style furniture, and the towels and sheets were from Kmart and seemed worn.
