Good place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, and well taken care of. The only drawback, the wifi was a little slow.

JOEY MAKES IT HAPPEN AT CALIENTE T

Would recommend Thu, Dec 10, 2015
Well for one Joey, the front desk clerk, is always awesome when I stay there. He always goes the extra mile to ensure that my stay is as pleasant as possible. The rooms are spacious however it would be nice if a microwave was in the room like other similar hotels offer.

It is such a nice place for the price. I have stayed there before and the pool is so nice. The rooms are nice. I wish they had a restaurant and breakfast. Nice central location in Palm Springs.

Old, dirty, and smelly

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 28, 2015
I cannot believe this place is still in business. I booked this room because the pictures looks great, but when I arrived it was an old, dirty, smelly room. I literally had to air it out (I preferred a hot room vs a smelly room). I asked the front desk to be moved to a better room and they were honest and said all rooms need a little updating The carpets had huge black stains, the bathroom was old and tiny. The entire hotel needs to be torn down and rebuilt. The pool area was also dirty and dated. Save your money and check out other places. The staff was not helpful at all and didn't even know where I could find a decent restaurant. Wow. Worst experience ever. There were even hairs all over the bathroom counter. Gross!!
