Having had pleasant experiences at numerous Comfort Inns when traveling, I selected this location for a business trip overnight in Palm Springs . Thankfully, it was only ONE night ! From the rate "discussion" upon arrival , my pre-requested conditions (confirmed earlier with central reservations at a firm price) were ignored, and I was told that rooms of the type requested could ONLY be obtained by additional cost. That seemed outrageous as the hotel was not full ( or even close), and I walked by numerous suitable rooms en route to my far-away, very inconvenient location. Then, my room was a litany of bad conditions : chemical smells from new carpet. ( While I understand new carpets do smell...it seemed that there might have been rooms less chemically infused, or aired out prior to occupation. ) The tub stopper did not work properly, and the HOT-COLD shower handle was reversed, which could result in some dangerous temp conditions, had I not investigated before entering the shower..... right down to little things : missing basic items like tissues ( there were exactly 2 tissues in the box, no replacements), which would have been absolutely no big deal....except for the other things. I had to park in creepy parking in the far back section of the facility, enter into a darkened hallway (complete with large garbage cans),then take an old, rattling, dingy elevator . ALL of this, plus the bed was soft, uncomfortable and in need of being replaced - AND the heater unit was plugged into an electrical wall outlet which had a permanent, bright green light on it...resulting in a bright, green light shining into my room all night...plus, the GFI unit on another electrical plug just beeped on ( or off) several times during the night, unpredictable and unrelated to anything I could determine. PLUS, this room was an "adjoining " one, with neighbors whose sneezing and snoring were audible through the "adjoining" door all through the night as well. Totally strange and uncomfortable overnight at this facility. Must say that I will avoid this place in the future, and suggest you do the same !
