The pool is great - lots and lots of space and nice and quiet. It's definitely one of the biggest pools I've seen at a hotel in Palm Springs. The hotel is very basic, not luxury accommodations or anything, but we appreciated the quiet location and not feeling cramped. It's located at the entrance of the city, with great views of the mountains. The receptionist was very friendly and attentive and any requests we had (wine bottle opener or extra towels) was met swiftly. But if there was a complimentary continental breakfast, we weren't told about it. If there was, it would have been appreciated since I'm not a huge breakfast eater. We did end up going to Ricks (semi-onsite restaurant), which was a great breakfast (friendly staff and good food).
However, there were a few things that needed updating/upkeep in our room. One was that the water in the shower never stayed at a constant temperature. It never stayed the same temperature during a short shower, which was annoying. In addition, the first night we had to shut off the AC in the night (which left us feeling uncomfortable in the morning), because it got super noisy. It still worked, but it was definitely louder than normal AC units. Perhaps it is in need of maintenance or is a little out of date.
On our final day at the hotel, after taking one last dip at the pool, I was told by my parents that I couldn't take a shower before we left before the water had been unceremoniously cut off. I don't know if this was a one-off thing or if it's standard operating procedure to cut off a room's water the day a guest checks out, but we had no notice or advance warning of it either way. At the bare minimum, we would have appreciated a notice under the door in the morning advising that the water was to be cut off the next day, but we received no notice, which made our departure highly uncomfortable and definitely soured our stay. I had to drive home without having showered after a swim in the pool, not to mention not being able to use the toilet before our departure either. We didn't notice any plumbers or obvious work going on, so I'm not sure what that was all about. It was unfortunate, because it was the sort of thing that you automatically bring up when someone asks you how your trip was.
I would definitely try the hotel again, but hopefully they spend a little more upkeep on the functional aspects of the rooms in the future and give notice next time the water goes off!
