“This place rocks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

I am a business traveler and have had my employees stay here in the past. I only heard good things about there stay. I ended up needing to stay in town for a week while I was training a new employee and was not able to stay at the La Quinta Resort I usually go to. My stay was fantastic, I loved having a full kitchen in the room! The atmosphere is great as well as the staff. The manager Leo was a great help, I can be quite demanding at times and he took care of everything on a timely basis, The prices are great for the quality received!

Room Tip: Get one of the newly remodeled rooms!

I am very happy you enjoyed suite 46 during your stay. It is an excellent location near the medium sized pool. I know this was one of your first times at our hotel. You are now part of the International Lodge family. So please return very soon!

Excellent service and room. Grounds and common areas need updating. People using pool at night (right outside sliding door) was a bit disconcerting. Sliding doors need a more secure locking method. For short term guests: Coffee for the pots would be nice. Soap dishes should be installed in the shower.

This is in a great location, within walking distance to El Paseo. Our dealings with the staff were pleasant and we had no issues with check-in or service. We didn't get daily maid service...not sure if we needed to request it or not. No matter though, it was only for 2 nights.

These rooms are grouped into 2 story buildings. Perhaps 10 or 12 suites per building. Most buildings have a pool or a hot tub to share. We shared a mid-size heated pool with ourselves! Perfect. All of the rooms have a different decor, as you can see by the pics. I think there are a few different owners...

We stayed in unit 40, on the ground floor, which had a fully equipped kitchen (I think they all do) and a king bed. The bathroom had double sinks and a good size shower. Plenty of room for 2 people as it was much bigger than your standard hotel room.

The suite needed a good carpet shampoo, new window coverings and better quality bedding (it was nothing like the bedding you have at a decent hotel chain), and a bath mat! More than one towel per person is always a good idea too. Really, the place was well appointed and laid out nicely. For me, being a bit of a clean nut, I think it could have used a bit of help in this dept.

Honestly though, for the price and what you get, it was a good choice. We would definitely come back, and would even consider the International Lodge for a longer stay given there are laundry facilities too.

Room Tip: It's hard to say as there really is no way know what your room is going to look like! Not all b...

Just had our first stay at International Lodge. My husband and I and two other couples booked 3 rooms while we were in town for an event. All the rooms were different and all were large, super clean, comfortable and well appointed. We loved having the kitchen and 'fridge. The staff are wonderful and bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. Very impressed with the hotel and will be back again.

Room Tip: The king rooms were very large and comfy. Most rooms face a swimming pool (there are 3!).

We are all looking forward to your groups return during the next Coachella Festival in 2014. Everyone in your group was great. You don't know how much we really value your business and highly rated review. We never take any of our guests for granted. It is always wonderful when a large group comes with multiple rooms and they all leave happy. Thank you!!
