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.

Best Bargain in Palm Springs

Shilo continues to be the best value in the city of Palm Springs -- big, suite-sized rooms, nice balconies, kitchen area with refrigerator, and now new flat-screen TVs, new beds and microwaves, plus free breakfast (with eggs!), free wi-fi in the rooms and free internet and coffee in the lobby. Two pools and jacuzzis (one set for adults only) and free sauna and steam room, The only drawback is the cheap furniture, other than those new beds. Someone could take this place over, put a few bucks into the rooms and make Shilo the premiere resort in town, it's that good!

Electrical nightmare

only one of the electrical outlets in the room worked, and the air conditioner didn't actually cool down until 1am. The hotel staff were nice though.
