We paid $64 on Hotwire which is a fantastic rate for this hotel (normally $149 a night).
For $64 it is fantastic. For $149 I would possibly be dissappointed. Then again, Palm Springs/Palm Desert can be expensive so was really lucky to have got this for the rate we did.
The pool is spacious and there is a hot tub. It's quiet, and is perfect for the kids as it is only a max of 5ft deep.
The breakfast is decent, although only one fruit choice. There are yoghurts, cereals (3 types), pastries (about 3 types), bagels, muffins, english muffins, eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits etc. Plus a variety of juices and fresh cartons of milk.
Most of the front desk staff are nice and helpful - especially Karina - she is lovely and so helpful.
There is free internet and there is also a pc and printer on 2nd floor for public use which is really handy if you don't have a laptop with you or if you want to print stuff.
There is a laundry on site but only has 1 washer and 1 dryer, but it is adequate. There is also a small gym which consists of a treadmill, crosstrainer, reclined bike and some weights.
Beds are doubles which is a shame as would have preferred queens, but for $64 I am not complaining.
Not noticed the walls are thin like other people have mentioned. It all seems pretty quiet to me - then again, my kids are maybe drowing out the other noise :-)
I'd happily recommend this at the price we got it for. Perhaps if you have to pay $149 for it ($179 at the weekend) there could be better options - but still, nice enough and the location really is very central to all the restaurants, shopping malls etc. Albertsons right across the road and CVS next door!.
