5th time at this hotel. Even though some construction was going on, the place is still well worth the inconvenience. The staff here are amazing. Came up for the Big Car show and the hotel went out of their way to make us welcome.

Like other reviewers, this hotel was booked without knowing that the lobby was being renovated. The renovations however, although they do not look nice did not affect our stay as the weather was warm enough to sit outside in the garden area for breakfast. The room was huge, an executive room or similar, however it had the same furniture as...

Dear PointSur, Thank you for your feedback. Even with our best efforts, getting the message to all our guests about our ongoing renovations is challenging. The good news is that we are almost done, and should be complete with the lobby phase by the end of February 2017. We look forward to sharing a lovely new lobby with all our...

We were there during construction but it was fine. The rooms are small, but there is a lot of attention to detail. Beds and pillows were super comfortable.

I had never been in ANY hotel that had wood floors! No kidding. Nice throw rug in between the beds and that was the only carpet surface. I guess because of all of the sand in the area? We stayed here for four nights and everything was good. Some noise one night - but that was the only negative. The...

We knew there were renovations when we booked, but through the dust our stay was fine!

I picked this hotel for a New Year's Eve weekend get-away. Online reviews rated it as more than acceptable. And, I've previously had good experiences at other Holiday Inn Express locations where the rooms were very nice. I booked through Expedia. The rate was fair for high season in the Palm Springs area, but I was given no warning about...
