I reserved this hotel for my mom's birthday for the night on July 16. We were promised the hotel would be ready by 3 if it was ready earlier we would get the hotel. I realized at check in it's a schpeel they tell guests. You get your room at 3. We were booked a second floor room... NO ELEVATOR PEOPLE! I had stayed with my mom, my 3 yr old and my 5 month old.... you know the gear you have to lug right?
In the room it's nice.. Needs updating I'm not going to lie. It's like a Best Western. I went to make my babie's bottle, and there were ants on the counter. I called the front desk to change rooms... sorry no can do. The maintence guy came with a Roach Can Spray. We told him OH NO we have babies you can't spray that here. We called the front desk and they said that's all they could do. So we sprayed ourselves after we left for dinner. When we called for towels the next morning, there were ANTS ON THE TOWELS! GROSS. My mom (LOL) wiped them off and said ok who's ready to shower! LOL
Don't expect much from the town. You will have to go to Palm Springs for dinner. Most restaurants are closed for good or closed for the summer. We ate at Nicolo's in Palm Desert. I make better Italian food and I'm not Italian. It served it's purpose I suppose. We went for ice cream in Palm Springs at Cold Stone. All in all we made the best of it and had a nice time and the kids enjoyed the pool. My 3 yr old loved to do Cannon Balls or as she called them "Cataloupes".
P.s. If you go to the front desk from the pool area to check on your room(Woman) wear a cover up.. the guy at the front desk eyes you like Candy. Gross. I'm a mom of 2 and was wearing a once piece at that.... just a word of caution.
