Old and insecure physical plant

Great pool and Spa treatments do not make up for old and insecure physical plant The Room keys are metal. The security partition that limits access to rooms at the back of the hotel has a lock that is broken and not secure. Cable tv has noting to watch Room was poorly clean. The cocktail lounge and Restrurant was good and had a friendly staff. Would not stay again.

Great pools ans staff

We wanted a place to get in the hot water after an all day drive across the desert. This was great. Mineral pools of different temps all open 24 hours. The mineral pools and swimming pools and pool deck are great. The hotel is a time capsule to the 50s and 60s. The design, the construction, the interiors all were fine/OK but from 1960. Our room was large and clean. The bed was good, but not equal to the best I have had in a good hotel/motel. Good linens and pillows. The rest of the furniture seemed to be 50 years old but clean and comfortable. Wifi worked fine. The "mountain view" room was not worth it. The pool view rooms have more updating inside. We chose mountain in case the pool rooms were too loud. But in mid July the Sat evening was calm and Sat night was very quiet. Very nice cafe/restaurant on site. We had a great breakfast. Overall good value and we will go back. It is like renting a vintage Rolls for a limo. Style and feel but not all the slick look, bells and whistles we now have in new cars and hotel construction.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Cabot's Pueblo Museum. Only a couple of minutes away. Great old "Pueblo" museum from the 1940s and 1950s roadside attraction. Great history of one of the desert pioneers and his vision of the desert. Fun and easy to do. Pay for the tour. Great trading post gift shop.

Shock and disappointment

The most shocking aspect of our visit is that the spa & pools are open to the public not just the guests. The level of noise and usage was beyond the comfort range. From the early am to late pm the noise is deafening and unpleasant. The room was shabby at best and definitely NOT SECURE. While the sheets and bed were clean and adequate everything else in the room and hotel has a patina of overuse and shabbiness. The non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. While the staff is polite and hardworking the accommodations are so decrepit as to make our stay a great disappointment. If a "spa" implies to you health and comfort this is not your place. By making the facilities open to the public that brings with it an element of behavior that is not conducive comfort and relaxation.

Not a good experience

Absolutely no way should this be considered a four star hotel. The rooms need updating 30 years ago. The food from the restaurant was mediocre at best. I would never stay in this hotel again.

In desperate need of renovation

Everything is falling apart. Pools are great but need to be cleaned. Restaurant looks like its stuck in the 70`s. However the room we got, compared to our friends`, was decent. Matress and pillows were pretty comfy. We stayed during tennis tournament and everything was overpriced, this hotel too! Next time well be getting a room in Palm Springs, at least well be in good location.

great old school hotel

Great hotel for the pools and value! The rooms are not the best, but if you are there to enjoy the pools-it can't be a better value. Thei restaurant is very resonable and the service is great! Don't expect a high scale resort, but it definitely A resort. We were a family with teen agers and we all enjoyed it!
