Having read the posted reviews I was VERY concerned about staying at this hotel, but the location was extremely convenient and since I was not intending to spend a lot of time in the room I figured I would chance it. The GREAT price I got on a website was the swinger for me however :).
I am tremendoulsy pleased to say that my fears were unfounded. The room (double bed standard) was clean and so was the bathroom (this is the maker or breaker in my book). There was daily room service which kept things nice and tidy and well stocked (in room fridge and coffee maker). Access off Highway 111was a breeze and the hotel is close to (walking distance) Albertsons and Ralph's, CVS, a range of restauarants French gourmet, Mexican, Chinese, grill. Shopping in La Quinta is a 5 minute drive away. I would say that this hotel is in a really good central location in a somewhat upscale area - at the edge of the golf resorts.
There was some remodelling going on but that did not really affect guests (except having to wait on the elevator). The elevator - that would be the bad point. It was HOT and the carpet old. I hope that this also benefits from the remodelling.
All employees were very friendly especially the breakfast guys. This is a nice start to the day - small choice eggs, pancakes, hot or cold cereal, fruit.
I did not use the pool but checked it out . The pool area is slightly screened from the balcony areas . It was extremely clean and in the whole time (10 days) and there were not towels strewn around. Excellent value, I'd recommend it. I'd stay there again - with my children!
