Red Roof Inn Palm Springs - Thousand Palms

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Linens were dirty looking. No microwave or mini fridge. Awful.

A Middle to Low End Motel somewhat off the beaten track. A noisy half-refrigerator on the floor as you enter the room. No tissues in the room. Wi-fi that is almost useless But Clean Comfortable Bed Faucets work. Not very expensive.

Made a reservation. Not a surprise that we were coming but the room was HOT. Turned air as high it could go and it took at least an hour to cool off room. If you know a guest is coming turn it on ahead of time. We almost asked for a refund as it was very uncomfortable.

Nice clean room conviently located near everything I will definitely book there again not to mention the price was great

The motel is located beside a truck stop. Its facility is noisy and the grounds were not kept clean. The beds are old, worn out and uncomfortable. The room lacked true hot water. It took several minutes of running water to get to lukewarm temperature. The front desk staff was rude and acted as though they didn't want to assist you.

towels smell - pillows are brutal, shower curtain rods falling, Got home and wanted to boil myself Sorry but Holiday Inn just 1.5 miles away was $5 more but MUCH CLEANER and Free Breakfast

I had to stay there because it was the closest hotel in the area where I had to go. Everything else was sold out. If you have to stay there DO: bring your worn blanket, towel & toiletries. DO check your bed for bed bugs because the beds do not look very clean! (WE didn't have any in our room but you never know any other room) DON'T: stay there if you don't have to!

The grounds could be kept a little nicer and cleaner, rooms are a bit rough on the edges, though they are decent and modern. Decent Parking House keeping staff was super friendly, the night guy at check in seemed to rather not want to be there. I'd stay again if need be, but I think I'd rather go somewhere else.

I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the motel was. Cost was minimal and the lOcation was fantastic. I would recommend this motel to all my friends.

The room was fine but the shower curtain rod was missing screws one on each side, so couldn't close the curtain all the way. The next day got in the shower at 6:00 a.m. and had to stand only in the middle of the tub where the curtain covered to make sure water didn't splatter outside, notified the front desk when I left

when i completed the booking the system change all the options i had done and when I arrived to the hotel I was told the wrong information was booked by this organization with smoking and double queen beds which is the opposite i wanted. the staff was very helpful but it took a 20 min to be corrected. the following morning we get waken up by the gardener blowing leaves out of our window for about 15 min, not even 4 min after the housekeeper come in and the closed the door, 4 min later we get a call the room was not fully registered and the bathroom tub was falling in pieces. I was so tired and annoyed I just wanted to leave.

Not sure what ppl before expected out of it but it's not a Hilton. A great a good hotel for a great price. A good red roof Inn.

LOCATED RIGHT NEXT TO A TRUCK STOP. REFRIGERATED TRUCKS.....HAD TO LISTEN TO THEM ALL NIGHT LONG, BOTH NIGHTS. BOTTOM PIPE ON SINK LEAKED AND SOAKED THE FLOOR IN THAT AREA. HAD TO LISTEN TO A BLOWER IN OUR ROOM TO DRY IT OUT. LIGHTING OVER BEDS DIDN'T WORK THE FIRST NIGHT. OVERALL LIGHTING IS VERY POOR.

Disaster I would not recommend that to anybody cockroaches, water running in the tub ( not dripping) smell so bad I had to almost finish the whole can of spray and it didn't work. two young men upstairs was making noise until 4am and so many other thing . and we paid almost $180 for 2 nights

If you're needing a cheap 1 night stay, this place will work. It's not a fancy castle or anything, but close enough to plenty of food and has a bed to sleep in.

This is a dirty, noisy, awful hotel. It is too noisy to sleep, there are only two towels in a room. It is next to a truck stop and its noise. The morning breakfast consisted of coffee, oranges, and apples. Impossible to sleep. The door was not repaired and basically the place has been let go badly. Stay anywhere else.

Ok, if you are looking for just a place to sleep. The Red Roof is well used and has slow wifi.

unless you like staying next to a highway don't book this place- its a $50 cab ride from palm springs!

The overall condition of the hotel was run down. You could see patch work and paint touch up every where. There wasn't even a coffee maker in the room. We have done better in cheaper hotels.

Exactly what we paid for. Came in late, left early. Bed where not the best. Next to a truck stop.
