Wonderful Getaway

My husband and I went on a 5 day get away and stayed at the Garden Vista Hotel. This is the only hotel we stay at in Palm Springs. It was peaceful and quiet and exactly what we needed to relax and escape reality. The folks at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I had asked for a particular room and got it. The adult pool was wonderful with no screaming kids anywhere around. Yes we love kids and have grandkids of our own but during our getaway we didn't want to deal with them. There really isn't anything to say about this hotel but it is outstanding. It is not a resort or a spa hotel but we are not resort people and we don't need all of those amenities. Try it you will love it.

The best ever Mexican food restaurant is in the heart of Palm Springs"Las Casuelas". Excellant food and great atmosphere. We ate dinner there everynight of our vacation.

Nothing Special. Floors Dirty!

We stayed in a King room. The room layout is nice and very spacious. That is the nicest thing I can say about this hotel. The floors are tile which I assumed would be cleaner than carpet for my toddler to crawl on since they are mopped almost daily. I was wrong! After 5 minutes of being on the floor, my child's feet and knees were black and I am not exaggerating. The bed was o.k. but you could feel the springs pressing on you. They have 2 pool areas which is nice but one is for adults only. The family pool was very dirty with tree debris as well as the patio area. We several attempts at getting it clean to no avail. The adult pool area is clean. The continental breakfast is o.k. nothing fancy. My friend had a dbl queen room with nothing but problems. TV did not work, as well as the microwave and telephone. One lamp was without a light bulb and shower soaps/lotion dispenser was unlabeled. To sum it up the biggest drawbacks are extremely dirty floors, and dirty family pool area. Room layout is nice, bathroom is clean but room furniture is dingy dirty. I don't expect anything fancy for under $100 a night but I do expect clean and functional. I would not stay here again.

Great Weekend

We had a great weekend in Palm Springs. The location of Garden Vista Hotel was very convenient. It was very close to the Aerial Tram and downtown. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The weather was perfect. The staff upon arrival were very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.

Okay, but not great

The staff was very friendly, no problem there. Room was as described with all the amenities listed, but some issues: 1) Wifi was very slow that you can't even really use it, 2) refrigerator smelled pretty bad, 3) the sink water color was very weird, almost a milkish color. Price seemed a bit pricy for this but I assume it would be cheaper if I reserved ahead of time. If you looking past one night, I would look elsewhere. But for one night, it gets the job done.

Run down!!

The staff was friendly when I checked in, but when I opened the door, I immediately noticed how dirty the room was.. Stained carpet, running toilet, dirt on the counter tops, outside furniture was filthy.. This could be easily fixed, but seems like the owners don't care.. Would not stay there again unless there were some major changes..

This is the 4th time we've stayed at this hotel (previously The Shilo Inn) so we knew what to expect,it does need a freshen up but the pool is still excellent the rooms large and for what you pay is still a very good value for money hotel.

RELAXATION WEEKEND GETAWAY

It was perfect for my best friend and I. We simply wanted some time to chill and relax by the pool. We were able to get a room with a view to the adult pool. It was awesome. Our goal to relax was accomplished!
