Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Ariel Tramways is worth going on to get to the top of the mountain. Bring a warm jacket. It gets cold up in the mountain.

Bad Customer Service & Horrible WIFI

I got there and the guy working didn't even acknowledge me. He took forever to help the prior guest checking in. I booked a king room and was given a two queens. He said what you book online does not matter and they only need to provide you with a room. Checked in the room had absolutely no trash bin anywhere. I called the front desk and the guy said it should have one but there was nothing he could do about it. I wondered if they even inspect the rooms after cleaning them. I would think they have cleaning inspectors. There appeared to be a spot of blood on one of the comforters on one of the beds. THE WIFI was horrible. THE PRICE was great. It could be a great place...its really cute...but customer service means everything to me.

Needs better management.

I checked in on 05/22/2103 in the evening and had a booked a deluxe king room. Upon arrival and check in I was given a two queen bed room. He said they only have to give you a room and not the room type you book on-line. Upon checking in there were stains on the carpet and what appeared to be a blood stain on the bed. Also there was no trash bin in the room. I called the desk and was told there should be a trash bin in the room and housekeeping was gone and I would have to wait until the morning to get a trash bin. I was wondering if the do quality inspection of the rooms via housekeeping to make sure all necessary items are in place. It appears they do not. The guy at the desk was not very helpful or customer service oriented. He did not even say hi I will be with you right after I check this other customer in which took him a great deal of time. Acknowledgement is very important in customer service. I think the location and value are good features and the place is cute. The internet connection was horrible. I do think this place could have additional staff customer service training. Its a value, but everyone should always remember to value their guests.

It would have been nice to know

It would have been nice to know parts of the site were under construction. Especially because when they start swinging hammers at 8:00AM on a Saturday it really gets things off on the wrong foot.

I was very happy with this hotel!!

I was very happy with this hotel!! It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and large. There were beautiful views and it was really close to most things you would want to do in Palm Springs (downtown, the tram, great restaurants etc.) The pool was large and clean and there were beautiful views from it. There was no restaurant but there were several close by. I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.

we really enjoyed our stay here.

we really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely room we had a king deluxe lots of space in room. Had no problem with free wireless in the room. Hot tub was nice and large. swimming pool good size to swim in and very clean. nice little grass area to sit on with shade. Really need a car as it is quite a walk to restaurants and downtown. We thought it was excellent for the great $60 rate.
