Cali trip

Hotel was nice on the outside but room smelled like an old gymnasium, carpet smelled like it had mold, musty smelly, and a/c was warm [...]The hotel should have given us arefund instead of just telling us as we were checking out, oh I'll tell them, we don't know who they were going to tell and just left unhappy.

Family getaway

The room seemed old and musty. The ac rattled all night. The staff at check in was efficient but that was the extent of their hospitality. The bathroom was decent, but could use some updating. Overall it was a safe place to stay the night, but it didn't awe us with the comfort that one might want after driving many hours on the road.

Poor sleep

Alarm clock set by prior occupants went off at 3AM.! Couldn't get back to sleep because neigboring room had their TV on all night. Probably would have slept thru it it I wasn't awakened by alarm clock. Solution?? Perhaps housekeepers could check status of alarms as part of cleaning between customers.

It was OK

The hotel was ok but not what we expected from a 4 star hotel. Breakfast was good, pool was very smal.

You get what you pay for...!

The hotel itself was just "ok". The rooms were clean, but extremely small. I have stayed at other Marriott's and they were much better. There was one computer in the lobby to access email - for the whole motel. We weren't there to be in the hotel, but if we ever go back, we would NOT stay there. No paper, no jets in tub as described. Three hangers in the closet.

Amenities are wrong.

The amenities provided by this hotel are not the same as listed. The bistro is only open for certain hours and doesn't have room service. It doesn't have a spa. Make sure to keep your email because my breakfast option was not there when I got to the hotel. I had to go through a long process to prove I had paid for breakfast too. Not a pleasant vacation spot.

OK for business

I expected a bit more from Marriot. The bed was comfortable & wifi worked well. View from the balcony was supposed to be of the golf course, it really was a view of the parking lot.

Solid hotel

I got a whirlpool king room. The whirlpool tub in the common area was nice worked fine. Bed was ok as far as comfort. The location is great because you are close to all neighboring towns ie cathedral city, Indian wells, rancho mirage etc.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The river is a little shopping center with lots of food, yard house for drinking and a movie theatre. About a 10 min drive from the hotel.
