Front Desk people are a joke

Front desk people are a joke. They messed up my reservation and gave my room away. When I got there they treated me as if I was crazy and didn't have a reservation. No manager on duty that day. When I talked to the manager the next day he was nice about it and reversed the charge to my card.

It's sort of OK

Breakfast was inadequate. No meat, no eggs. Hot cereal only.

long weekend adventure

Biked and hiked. We have had more comfortable beds at other hotels. Other hotel guests made noise walking above our room and in the halls.

Great family hotel

The hotel is half an hour drive from down town Palm springs. Close to nearby restaurants. Close to hiking spots. The hotel itself has an outdoor pool and hot tub with bar service. Clean and spacious rooms. The clientele when we visited is primarily families and older couples.

Nice Hotel with Dirty Room

Overall the hotel looks real nice....big lobby, nice bar and lounge but a few things were problematic.....the front desk was too small, understaffed, and using outdated technology and our room was not very clean...there was a gob of something nasty on the wall and it was newer and there is no way that the cleaning staff should have missed it...it was REALLY offputting. The continental breakfast was good but not great and the pool and hot tub were excellent. Overall this place has so much potential but came up a little short.
