I was really suprised when I first saw the room. It was huge. Honeslty I thought it will be just a typical cheap room with bed and bathroom, but this was something different. Big King Sized bed, comfy sofa, TV, big bathroom, nice patio with garden and the pool view. Everything was clean. Bit old, but still nice, and tidy....

Wonderful interior garden offers peace to travelers. The hotel is a little dated but well worth the price paid. Rooms are generous in size. Near the center of Palm Springs with easy access to restaurants and local sites.

Well!! First impressions as a hotel means a lot to me!! It's about being welcomed to the hotel and feeling a good homely atmosphere, we arrived late on July 12th, as we walked in after a 10 hour drive the receptionist at check in was sitting on the desk and I thought oddly " how professional" We weren't greeted with...

Yes, you would expect to get a decent discount during the HOT season in Palm Springs, but this place was certainly a great surprise. Great price and the accommodations were excellent. The perfect location, right on N Palm Canyon Drive, close to a great, favorite restaurant (Sammy G's). You can't go wrong here.

Stayed here a couple of nights. The price for the room was excellent, about $50 a night including a Continental breakfast. The room was extremely large and clean, a little outdated. They have 2 pools, one for adults only which was great for us! It was quiet when we stayed there and had no issues with house keeping. The worst...

We booked on line and took advantage of an exceptional deal and stayed on a Sunday night. Check in was the worst I think we have experienced. The girl was disinterested, uncommunicative and slow. Fortunately things got better. Parking is plentiful. Our room was large, the King size bed was great, the shower was very good. The air conditioner worked...

This is a $50 hotel. The location is near downtown Palm Springs. It is adequate with an ok bed. The rooms are clean ( but smell of disinfectant ) The bathrooms are a bit worn and need some repair. The wifi was good and the continental breakfast was not very good. Overall, if you need a place to stay in...

The hotel has pity much all the amenities you can ask for in a hotel. Free wifi, breakfast, pools, free parking, fridge, microwave and AC in the room and good location. The only drawback is the cleanliness. The corridor to the room was dirty and the room wasn't well dusted, the pools weren't cleaned frequently with leaves floating around. But...

We were staying at another resort down the street but wanted to stay a couple of nights longer and this was very close and the price was good. Problem is when we called in to see when we could check in and were told to call back in 2 hours for an update..no problems. We called back and we were...

For the price it was a good value. Large rooms, most have a patio or baloney to the pool area. Small fridge and microwave in room. Two pools and family and adult only pool. Breakfast was minimal. Check-in was fast and courteous. Grounds and rooms showed their age, but balanced with the room price, <$60.00 it was a good value....
