Great getaway, very wonderful

Staff was very friendly. However, we did not have hand towels or bath mat on two of our nights.Also, the soap they provided was very skimpy.

Shilo Inn--good price but there's a reason

We were not expecting a 5-star experience at this very fair price, but we were disappointed at the inconsistent maid service and the almost painful continental breakfast--crowded, poorly stocked, and very uncomfortable seating choices. I think, with some attention, the management could make both better.

Surprisingly, a pleasant stay

There was adequate amount of free parking & the continental breakfast was ok, no variation, but good coffee. I liked the fact that there was an adult pool & another one for the families. It was quiet & restful, dispite being located on the main route of Palm Springs, even over the New Years weekend! The only negative aspect was the stairs to the second floor to haul up two heavy suitcases, no elevator. When I visit this area again, I'll probably choose Shilo Inn, as I felt safe & comfortable in this motel.

When you get tired of the continental breakfast, eat @ Ricks' restaurant, just next to the Shilo Inn or Billy Reeds' restaurant, just across the street.

It is affordable which include all you need.

We picked this hotel because it's close to the tram. We come here just for the snow trip. The room is pretty good size for the family. It includes a microwave, a small coffee maker ,a hair dryer which come very handy. The furniture and room decoration looks a bit old but clean. The price includes the continental breakfast which is very reasonable. The heated family pool is a good size. The jacuzzi tub was hot but the jet did not work other than that we're very happy.

Very pleased

Cleanliness is my biggest thing. Room was very clean and it appeared it had a few updates. Furniture looked like it had recently been recovered, nice and clean, not worn, and no stains! Room was good size and bed had a decent mattress. Hotel staff was very friendly.
