“Comfortable Hotel and Convenient Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Everyone was very friendly and the continental breakfast was adequate, well prepared and different every morning. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is a hotel that provides comfort and convenience not pampering. My only drawback was the layout for the elevators. There were only 2 elevators to the complex of 3 levels and they were on opposite corners of the hotel. You could get lost trying to find one in the long hallways or you could wait for a long time in the morning trying to get to breakfast in the lobby area. Otherwise, it is convenient to the freeway and to the Indian Wells Tennis Arena. I would stay here again.

we were very excited to be staying in another Homewood suites , this time however things went wrong from the start. We had reservation for Feb 26-March 7 after 2 days we decided to leave.. The first room we had no cell phone or lap top coverage so they moved us to the 3rd floor. That room had no kitchen pots and pans , we called the front desk several times and were told we would have them right away, we never did see them. Our AC was on some of the time . We were charged for a room even after we checked out , it took 5 days and several phone calls for it to be taken off our Visa bill. Room was clean and that I am thankful for. The free breakfast and dinner was very good. The maids are wonderful they work very hard to keep things clean.

Travelled to area for famiy wedding. Close to Hwy 10, which was extremely convienent. Just a basic, clean place for couple nights. Didn't use the pool or extra amenities, but again, basic for sure. Breakfast was convienent for a quick bite and staff worked to keep area clean. Room offered space for family of five, but pull out sofa uncomfortable as most are. I would say a basic, average stay and priced well for the area. We did pay an extra, reasonable fee for our 50 lb dog to stay, which was very helpful and staff was very nice. I always order extra towels and they remembered this upon check in, which I appreciated.

We have stayed here before, and just returned home from another visit to palm desert and stay at the Homewood Suites. First of all, this hotel is not really within walking distance to much, but it is conveniently located between the freeway and hwy 111.

There is plenty of free parking. We usually travel with a group, and all meet in the evenings in the lobby, which is very comfortable and accommodating. There is an adequate breakfast selection, and dinner served M-Th nights, which is surprisingly good for a freebie.

The guest suites are clean. The beds are very comfortable, with decent quality bedding and plenty of pillows. The kitchens are well equipped. Between the complimentary breakfasts and dinners, we rarely use the kitchen, but having a full apartment size fridge does come in handy.

The staff, from the front desk to the housekeeping, are all extremely friendly and helpful. Kudos to the manager, Chad, for successfully running a welcoming hotel with a staff that truly seems happy to help. It's a pleasure staying here.

Typical Homewood suites with little to offer except a bed. The hotel is in an unfinished business mall way far from anything at all. It is close to the new Roverside UC campus and the 10 but there is nothing in the neighborhood. The rooms are fairly clean though the coffee maker did not work and was dirty from the previous guest. Bed is rather soft and bedding is poor quality sheets just big enough to fold over the very thick bedspread but it is not covered with anything so clearly dirty so you really need a bigger sheet to cover it. The food offerings - took one look and headed elsewhere; breakfast same. Not a top choice at all but ok for a roadside bed if you are not picky. Noisy old fashioned ac units in the window. Can hear the plumbing through paper thin walls.

Room Tip: ask for top floor mountain view

Had a wonderful experience at this hotel. We stayed 10 nights at the hotel. All the staff was friendly. Our room was huge and in excellent condition. We had a kitchen with a full size refrigerator. It came in very handy for the bits of food we wanted to prepare ourselves. Breakfast staff were helpful and the array of food choices was very good. Upon arrival we were presented with a dinner menu that we could have four nights a week. We went to dinner in the hotel twice. The meals were very good. We plan to stay here again.

Staying for 3 nights so wanted to be comfortable. 1 bedroom was large with firm bed, full king pillows, TV with HD channels, soft thick towels, and a shower with great water pressure. Kitchenette was new, clean, with a full-sized frig. Morning comp. buffet breakfast was impressive with fresh fruit, hot entree x3 (inc. sausage, eggs, and french toast), and plenty of other selections. Front and breakfast staff were attentive and personable. Can hear a little noise from walking above but minimally noticible. Probably 4 1/2 rating. Bottom line......would stay here again without hesitation
