good stay, great value

Stayed for one night, booked through [...]and got a good deal. Guy was super friendly upon arrival. Room was huge, bathroom was huge. Retro and dated, but clean and nice. Big tv, microwave, coffee maker, small fridge, nice bed. Lots of free parking. Even included a tiny continental breakfast. All staff was nice. Had a great stay - great value here.

"Family New Years Eve getaway"

The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The people at the front desk were very warm and friendly. The total experience at the hotel was very good. I would stay there again.

Getaway

Planned relaxing days away after Christmas holidays. Spent 5 days and 4 nights in area. First time in Palm Springs. Problems-- Adult Pool Hot tub did not work; no effort to fix it. TV did not work; Replaced the next day but missed football games. Room was not cleaned the first day. Breakfast is ridiculously inadequate. I did not expect much but they ran out of cereals, muffins, orange juice. Had to wait for coffee to be made. Still thinking about recommending to friends. Great location; Beautiful pool area which we really enjoyed. Overall a relaxing time. Just a little annoying with the "not working" stuff. Just didn't have to be that way. Could be a really great place but, alas, cutting corners makes it "so so." NOTE: Lots of "doggy" guests. If you don't like dogs, stay away.

Nice Hotel for the price from [...]

The hotel and grounds where very nice. The room we had was large and confortable. We were impressed when we walked in with the size of the room and a beautiful view of the palm Springs mountains. There is a very nice restaurant accross the street that serve breakfeast, lunch and dinner. The only real negatives was the shower head in the room sprayed everywhere and needed replacing and the continental breakfast is the worst i have ever seen and a waste of time.Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would do it again.

Also, downtown Palm Springs is no more than 10 minutes away by car with more restaurants and shops than you can imagine. Great town with great views.For upscale dinner with old school feeling, try Melvyn's Restaurant. What a gem it is.

Great Price on a Great Location

Great location, just minutes from Aerial Tramway, right next door to a great inexpensive and very popular breakfast joint! Rooms are spacious and courtyard view is great. I would recommend you give this one a try!

Decent, clean

Hotel was as expected. Clean and convienent. Nice pool and spa. Decent fitness room and sauna and steam room. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is nice and reasonably priced.

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.
