I enjoyed my two nights here. Cheerful staff, clean room, good location, nice buffet breakfast but lots of simple carbs, a big pool with lots of room to sun. The walls are a little thin, and the WiFi is really slow unreliable, and requires re-authentication too often.

The front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating. It was delightful to walk thru the entrance and to be greeted with a friendly face. The location was ideally situated to Palm Springs, Joshua tree Nat'l park, the Palm springs tram, Shields Date gardens and many good restaurants.

First of all the WiFi is just terrible. Pops on and off constantly. Seeing the reviews, it is a problem which has been occurring throughout the years. 1) WiFi is awful. Secondly the walls are very thin. The first night I had a snoring neighbour and it was almost like he was in the room! Second night my neighbours where...

Stayed while visiting Joshua tree national park and Anza Borrego State Park. Nice large double queen room with comdortable beds and spacious bathroom. Friendly desk clerk (Mark).Ample parking. On site business center, gorgeous backdrop for heated pool and hot tub. Breakfast included. Only wished room didn't smell so flowery upon arrival; had to open window to air it out.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was clean, most importantly our room was clean. The cleaning staff was polite and did a good job. The front desk was also polite, friendly and helpful. There was only one employee (for another service area, not front desk) that was for some reason a bit sullen. The free breakfast was pretty...

We stayed for three nights at this Holiday Inn Express, and although the room was adequate we would not stay here again.

I've stayed here twice. Front desk staff have always been friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and a good size. The breakfast is great. It seems small until you look at the selection. My diet is limited, but I found plenty of things I could eat. I'm not sure how to answer the question about being centrally located....
