Hi Chris - Thanks for your review and for the constructive feedback about staffing. Without guest feedback, we wouldn't be able to learn and grow so it's much appreciated. Please note we have a rooms renovation planned for the summer of 2017. Planning a nice update to our "campground" room design. I hope we can welcome you back again soon....

I would have to say the rooms are pretty poor. They are filled to the brim with furniture and accessories which is fine if they worked properly.

I really enjoyed my stay here and it always is an amazing experience.  Whenever I go to Palm Springs, this hotel is a must. I highly recommend staying in their "patio fireplace room” it was exactly what I was looking for, close to the pool but away from any noise. Not only do they offer comfortable accommodations, an outstanding DJ...
