“Nice place, not the best evening staff”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I waited 30 min. to check in while the receptionist chatted with a gentleman and failed to acknowledge any other guests. The room was comfortable and quiet. The cleanliness of the sink area left something to be desired. Overall, the experience was not worth the cost.

I can’t decide how best to describe this lodging. It’s not a hotel, there is no bar or room service. It’s not a resort, it isn’t on the beach, there are no activities. It seems to me that this is a cheap place to stop for a few days when visiting the region.

The rooms are OK and of a good size. The decor is a little dated, but this is common in America and I think that Americans like a little more chintz in their decor than Europeans.

Each room has a small kitchen area and a sofa, however you can’t call this a suite as the name suggests; a suite is defined as a number of rooms. In my room the sofa, bed and kitchen are all in the same room. No doubt there are better rooms available, perhaps with separation, but my room isn’t a suite! I guess that I’d call it a bed-sit, but this doesn’t sound so glamorous.

For my stay breakfast and indeed dinner was included, dinner was for four nights a week. I only ate dinner here once, as it wasn’t the best, but it’s there if you are on a budget. Dinner also included wine and beer. I have never seen this before in all of my travels and this just adds to the quirkiness of the lodging.

There is an Applebee’s next door and shops and other eateries are a walk or short drive away.

The pool is nice, although this being a somewhat family place meant that there were a lot of children about. Pool towels are readily available and there are plenty of chairs. As there isn’t a poolside bar, any refreshment that you need have to be brought in yourself. You have a large fridge in your room, so this isn’t a hardship; but again this is quirky.

Particular note must go to the Front Desk staff. I truly believe that the rooms are centrally booked and as there are no services to deal with at the lodging then they basically have nothing to do except swipe credit cards and hand out keys. I had a few requests while staying here, but I might as well not have bothered, the apathy of the staff was at record levels and it seems that they are powerless to even change a room. I tried to do this on more than one occasion and both times I was met with a frosty stare and a lame excuse.

To sum up, if you want a cheap place to rest your head for a few days, then this might suit. If you want any kind of service or personal care then I advise that you look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Try for a poolside room or at least a pool view room, other wise you will be looking at the car park...

Stayed here for Coachella. Great location, not too far from the venue and close to restaurants/ shops/ groceries... Room has a nice kitchen, and a separate living area. 2 large screen TV's, free internet for guests on as many devices as you need. The pool was great also. Will come back here with my kid this summer.It's definitely not a high end, "boutique" hotel, but very comfy, clean and well set up.

I picked this moderately priced hotel due to its location and based upon family members advise who live in the area. I visited the 1st week of April. 1st the Pros: Clean hotel and beautiful interior; nice pool (though not warm enough); good rates (accept AAA, corporate, government); convenient to interstate 10, highway 111 and Date Factory/Gardens, shopping...etc. Cons: rooms need new furniture; pool temp on cool side; breakfast needs more variety (more hot/cold food). All in all, one of the best reasonable priced hotels in the area. I would also check out the Best Western as well.

Room Tip: King beds are comfortable but two qween also available. Get 2nd or 3rd floor for better breeze.

Excellent Hotel and outstanding staff. Great meals with variety for Breakfast and Dinner. Over great value as compared to other hotels in area. Close to shopping and a variety of restaurants, including movie theater next door.

Well used hotel all year long. It needs an update and thorough cleaning. Regular staff does not have enough time for this kind of job. It needs to be worked into the schedule to keep hotel fresh and get families coming back for the price they are paying.

It was very quiet inside the room so I got a nice sound sleep. The water pressure in the shower was very good, not dribbling. It had an excellent kitchenette with a standard sized refrigerator and a standard stove if you need to cook something. Wonderful hot breakfast with a large selection of items.
