We stayed there with our 2.5 y/o and were surprised by the friendly staff and spacious room. Mind you we were expecting horrible service and room since we had just come from Anaheim HolidAy Inn.

Checked in early and staff was very helpful and did i mention friendly??

Spacious room with microwave and mini fridge that was actually cold. Lots of wide spots in the parking lot. Restaurant staff friendly and didn't even charge me for a glass of milk for my son.

Totally recommend this for all travellers.

After being in the Palm Desert area for a few days, we really wanted to get to a cooler spot. Being long time Priority Club members, I found this on their website. I couldn't have been more pleased. From the first call to the reservation desk until we checked out, everyone was friendly and professional. We used points and were given a top floor corner room with an ocean view. After the desert, this was like an oasis. Everything was super clean and modern. We went to the harbor and ate at Harbor Fish and Chips, which we loved. If you're in this area, I highly recommend this location, I have nothing bad to say at all.

The hotel was comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was nice. The only drawback is the lack of staff. Rooms are not cleaned until 4-5 p.m. (unless you call the front desk). The food in the Hotel is tasty but again the lack of staff is apparent. The staff that is there makes the stay pleasant.

The rooms are all new, granite counters,HD tvs, ipod docks, microwaves and fridges. The staff was excellent, Geoffry, Alex etc. all went above and beyond what you would expect from hotel staff. Geoffry in particular made the extra effort to make our vacation great. Ten min walk to the beach, 15 min. drive to Legoland

My room was spacious, super-clean, sleek with modern furnishings, comfortable and came with excellent amenities: hard and soft pillows, a large flatscreen HDTV, free (really fast) internet, a desk area and sofa and coffee table. Toiletries were great too. The room also had a microwave and mini-fridge (thankfully not stocked with overpriced drinks), as well as the useful ironing board, iron, hair dryer, complimentary coffee and tea. Parking is readily available and the hotel has its own security.

Staff was really friendly, especially at the restaurant - great service and good food. There is room service available as well. The staff went out of their way to sign me up for their rewards program - something that I was not familiar with. I liked the fitness room as well - the large TV there, towels, water, and new machines made taking a short exercise break a pleasure.

Yes, the hotel seems a little on the pricey side, especially when there are other nice motels in the area, but if its within your budget, you should definitely stay here.
