Excellent facilities

The king size bed, the room, it's locaion looking East over the grounds and pool area were excellent. The one thing that was sub-standard, was the morning breakfast. Minimum effort. Missing, was fresh fruit, and the morning newspaper. Having Billy Reeds across the street is a tremendous plus for returning to the PS Shilo Inn.

An Adequate Palm Springs Hotel

The Shilo Inn is a hotel which gives you good value for the price. The rooms are nothing special but they are clean and come complete with both a microwave and small refrigerator. Our balcony view was very disappointing since it overlooked the parking lot and the main street. The adult pool had many children playing in it which was a little annoying. The hotel is also located a bit far from downtown but there is a hotel shuttle.

Palm Springs Vacation

The grounds of the Shilo Inn are beautiful. The staff is friendly. The services are very lacking. You have to ask for more towels as they don't provide enough for the 2 people that are booked. They once didn't follow up on bringing soap and towels. Then the hair dryer was broken and I needed one in a rush and they didn't show for over 10 minutes and I had to call again and wait another 5 for someone to come with a working hair dryer. I don't think I would stay there again.

Convenient and Affordable

The front desk staff were pleasant, efficient, responsive and capable. The room was spacious, clean and had everything I need. The garden and pool area was very attractive, perfect for relaxing, reading and swimming. The breakfast buffet was a little scant but okay. It's conveniently located to downtown and there are very nice restaurants and clubs in walking distance. They allow pets which I appreciate as I often travel w/ my Black Lab. I am a repeat customer @ Shilo Inn.

Shilo Inn Palm Springs

Though advertised "Popcorn and fruit avaialable" - When we asked at the lobby they said it is no longer offered but still listed on the hotel map given at check-in. Also our in-room coffee was never replaced and the used cups were removed after tye firt day - a second water glass was also not provided
