“Convenient location & Good for the $$”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

We just returned from a first time stay (5-days Sun-Thurs) at this property. Since we were busy attending a tennis tournament during most of our stay and really only needed a clean, comfy place to sleep at night, we wanted a convenient, affordable hotel. This hotel fit the bill perfectly.

Since our stay was not over a weekend, the hotel was not terribly full and we got a great rate. Our room was better than expected (not as outdated as some reviews have said), although the carpet was a bit stained and needed replacing and the TV was old. The fact that our room had two separate sinks/vanity areas was an unexpected and convenient amenity. The beds were comfy and the room was very quiet. The adult pool was large, quiet, and clean. The small workout room by the pool has minimal equipment. We found the hotel staff to be efficient and friendly. The only disappointment was that the continental breakfast was VERY minimal and was served in a conjested area with little seating. You're better off spending a few bucks and eating a nice breakfast at either of the two nearby full-service restaurants (next door or directly across the street). They're both excellent.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back corner on the 2nd floor (#233). There were fewer people in that area so i...

It's not like me to put friends visiting me up at a hotel for a few days without first checking it out but I heard from another local friend that this place was pretty cool. Cool? The place is awsome! My friends enjoyed the hotel so much we spent most of their stay at the hotel pool and not mine! The staff was top notch, the grounds were very nice quiet (until our thrird cocktail poolside anyway..lol) and the rooms were extreamly comfortable. We also took full advantage of the free continental breakfast each morning and endless cups of coffee. The best part was, my friends have decided they would rather stay at the Garden Vista durring future visits instead of my place. Perfect! Less cleaning up after guest for me!!

Room Tip: If you choose a room on the back of the property you get a pool view from your patio and a mountain...

We stayed here when we first arrived in Palm Springs because it offered resonable value and was on the main drag. Rooms were OK but dated and could have been cleaner. However we find out that the room prices on weekends go from $79 to $299. The rooms are not worth that much, that to me is just price gouging. There is a breakfast in the lobby but it is a joke, go to Ricks or Dennys and get a decent meal.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floors if possible as they are quieter.

Room 120 was: Moldy, musty, smelly, worn out, ancient lumpy pillows, dirty grout; scratchy, thin stained towels and washcloths; the shower curtain was stained and snagged. Walls are paper-thin so did not get one full night's sleep. Badly in need of updating--a good scrubbing, fresh grout and paint and new bed linens would go a long way. Not much of a breakfast on offer. The only upsides: cheaper than others, the grounds and pool were clean and the staff were attentive.

After seeing reviews here we almost passed on this gem in the desert. Wonderful rooms, service, staff and facilities. We are booking another night and I hope to come for a week next year. We are two seniors traveling by car throughout southern California. Perfect for families and adults with separate pools for each. Very safe and a nice continental breakfast.
