    « Budget alternative to the higher cost fancy resorts = great value. »

    We used this hotel for friends and family without unlimited money. It costs on third the price of our fancy destination wedding resort hotel located just 1.3 miles down the road. Everyone liked the breakfast, and they used the swimming pool, too.

    « Business trip »

    Great stay in Palm Desert. I highly recommend this hotel. It covers all of my travel needs, and is close to great eating, a store if needed, and easy to get to multiple areas. Business or pleasure, I will be staying at this hotel again.

    « From awful to terrible »

    We were booked to stay six nights, we left after the first. We went to a new hotel that was less expensive. We were put in two different rooms, both had door frames were split and damaged and the lock sets were missing screws, you could move the door 3/4 inch while it was locked, not safe. We noticed most doors were like that. It stunk in both rooms like cheap hotel soap. The bathrooms were a joke, the shower head was broken, leaked and sprayed all over, and near impossible to set the water temperature, the toilet and tub were from 1970s. The pillows on the worn out bed were child size. Most of the staff we encountered, were no help at all. The first girl, moved us from one horrible room to a worse one, we were on the top floor, next to the laundry and mechanical room, and across from the elevator, that desperately need repair. When something in the storage room turned on, it was scary loud and actually shook our bed. The room hadn't been rented since before daylight saving time. Breakfast food is very rationed, very basic at best. When I went to check out, I stood right in front of a girl, scrolling on her cell phone, after 3 minutes or so, she looks up, and says, oh I didn't see you. I could go on, but to summarize, it was awful. There is a building with newer suites, choose that one. We went to a hotel in Cathedral city that was less than a year old, less money and so amazing.

    « Best value, great location »

    We booked this hotel while visiting Palm desert this spring. The room was super comfortable and had a very nice pool to relax. They even have larger suites if needed. There was a coin laundry facility on our floor and 2 tennis courts. The hotel is located 5 min from the Indian wells tennis centre, and close to restaurants and great shopping. Its about a 35 min drive along Hwy 111 to Palm springs. No charge for your rental car parking. One of our most favourite parts of this hotel, was the special breakfast which was included with the room. They prepare fresh eggs in front of you with bacon and hash browns, or you can have the most delicious fluffy pancakes you've ever tasted, amazing oatmeal and other choices. It was totally worth the value if you don't want to spend the big $$ for the resort hotels in the areal. We would definitively come back to this hotel on our next vacation in Palm springs or palm desert.

    « Great breakfast - remodeled - quiet »

    Stayed overnight in an 2nd floor upstairs room. I stayed here once before when the rooms were old and dated. The remodeled rooms were a much needed overhaul! I appreciated the coffee maker, clean bath and updated furniture. It is near shopping, great restaurants, and Starbucks across street. There are a lot of places to stay in the area and I would stay here again. Breakfast room was nice and large so you don't feel like you are eating with a bunch of adults in their pj's. -1 star because the door was severely damaged. I wish I would have notified the manager.

    « Nicely maintained hotel with excellent breakfast and nice pool »

    This Best Western Plus hotel is well located right on the border of Palm Desert and Indian Wells. The rooms are comfortable with king bed, cozy loveseat, nice sized table with lamp and electric plugs, refrigerator, large closet and flat screen TV. The bath is standard fare except with a humorously low sink and counter and a loud fan that comes on with the light. A huge benefit of this hotel is the excellent breakfast. Eggs, pancakes, hash browns, bacon and sausage are custom cooked for each customer. Very nice. There also is a breakfast buffet with cereals, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea and juices. The breakfast rooms both inside and outside have plenty of seating. It is lovely to linger here. The complex has a nice pool, beautiful plantings and many palm trees.

    « Great Stay »

    The hotel is older, but has been modernized. It is extremely pet-friendly, easy in and out rooms, with a front entry door, and a door to the beautiful courtyard. Walking our dog was easy on the city sidewalk just outside of the hotel. Eggs were cooked to order at the free breakfast. The staff was friendly and efficient. The internet worked well. It was a great value for the money. I would stay here again.

    This was in a good location, near El Paseo, restaurants, & many attractions. Nice, friendly staff, the room was dated but quiet. Great hot breakfast cooked to order. We didn't use the pool but there were a number of guest enjoying the area.

    TV didnt work in the room just a sound, on the curtain was very big hole, sheets and towels was stained asked front desk for new towels and they gave us after an hr. Shower head was leaking everywhere even cloth which left on counter was wet. Pillows are very small and not for sleep. Asked for a new pillows and they said they are sold out and dont have a new pillows but during check-out near the balcony curtain i cut my toe with a piece of glass. Went to emergency and unfortunately after years spend in best western its the most horrible experiance too finish stay with emergency room

    « Great value for Palm Desert/Palm Spring »

    The "resort" is more of a motel style hotel rooms. The facilities are quite dated but it's clean. The room is very spacious. There is a standard pool for you to relax. This is a good place if you are visiting the are and will spend most of the day playing golf/tennis or attending sporting/music events. This is probably not the resort if you are expecting a romantic getaway in the resort. If you have the right expectation it offers great value. The hotel offers free breakfast and free parking - added to the great value. Hot breakfast with eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage offered. The staff is nice and helpful. Overall I had a fairly nice stay and it meets all my expectation.

    « The hotel is a joke »

    I'm sad to say that the hotel is a joke. You pay more than $200 a night, and they promise you wi-fi and then the wi-fi doesn't work throughout my entire stay (I stayed 16 nights). When I called reception to complain about the wi-fi, the employee at the front desk told me there is nothing he can do. The hotel is supposed to be the official hotel for media covering the Indian Wells tennis tournament. How can you promise wi-fi to journalists who desperately need it and then it doesn't work? And you offer no solution? This is completely unacceptable. The hotel is definitely poor value for money. Also the housekeeping were yelling in the room that has a connecting door with mine waking me up at 7:00am.

    « Good hotel with few issues »

    We stayed here for a week. Hotel is nice, great location, easy access. Room was mostly clean (stuff that daily room service is in charge of), but it was in desperate need of much more detailed deep cleaning. It is very dated (doors sticking, faucets from 50 years ago, etc.), but functional. Price seemed reasonable. Front desk and room service personnel were great. Swimming pool is nice and well maintained. I did have problem with breakfast personnel though. We were told we have breakfast buffet. There are few things there to choose from (few options for cereal, bread, some yogurt). There is also a station where you can order eggs, pancakes, etc. Two cooks that work there are by far the rudest people I've seen working in a hotel. One of them was super rude and was yelling at customers who take too much food (by his estimate) from the cereal station (I've seen him yell at an old guy and chase him out). I was there with my daughter and she got a seat at the table, while I was waiting in the line for pancakes. I asked for 3 pancakes and 2 eggs and he replied something I could not understand and then gave me 2 pancakes and 2 eggs. I thought he misheard my order, but did not want to hold the line, so I took this to my daughter and went back to get another pancake. I waited in line again and then he yelled at me ?why are you back, I already gave you food?. I told him I ordered 3 pancakes and 2 eggs and only got 2 of each and they he yelled back that I only get 2/2. I tried to explain to him that I was ordering for 2 people, but he wasn't listening anymore. He made another pancake while shaking his head and making me feel like I came there to steal something. Then he slammed the plate when he was done. I just took that and left without trying to further argue about this, as he seemed like he was ready to explode, and I did not want to subject my kid to that. Luckily this was on our last day, but if it was not, I would have NOT gone back there again. On previous days, my kid was eating pancakes, so one of us ordered 2 at the time (I was eating cereal, trying to not go back too many times). That is why we did not get his wrath earlier I think. I do not think I will never go back to that hotel. It is just not worth it.

    « Adequate with great breakfast »

    Hotel is located on highway 111, within walking distance to eating places and east end of el Paseo. Although elevator appears old, the other aspects of the hotel are kept up well. Pool is only 5' deep and not too large, there is adequate lounge chairs and a hot pool. At breakfast, two chefs are on duty to offer a selection of hot choices, plus there are plenty of other options. Printer in computer area works well for printing boarding passes. We asked to change our room, instead of a king to two queens, which they said they would do, but on the designated day, no one came to us, which didn't bother us much as we looked out onto the beautiful flowering shrub and tennis courts out the back. Quieter there, too, as 111 is usually busy. Overall, a positive experience!

    Great experience here would stay again when in the area! Staff was friendly and helpful; common area accommodations pleasant and a outdoor pool for cooling off and relaxation. Our king bed was very comfortable and room very clean. Our balcony overlooked the inner courtyard garden area; quiet and relaxing.

    « Pretty good, a few issues »

    Enjoyed our stay here, breakfast room staff were especially nice. Room could have used a deep cleaning in corners etc. Also, the hotel is very large and the stairway configuration is confusing, especially since we were given a room overlooking the parking lot that was very far away from the lobby and breakfast room...hotel was not very full so we didn't understand why we were given such a distant room.

    « Breakfast Surprise »

    Located just off Hwy 111 and Hospitality Row, a ?typical' Plus property (which is a good thing)?PLUS, an included cook to order breakfast equal to restaurants! Rooms are updated and well equipped, and the beds are comfy. We spent 3 weeks there while remodeling and it was the right choice and the right price.

    « Best hotel experience we have in years. 10+ »

    Wow...... We did not have reservations so walked in and asked for a room for two nights with king bed if possible. We were not only offered all of it but at a great rate. We enjoyed the outdoor pool which was clean and fairly private for having second floor balconies peering down. The included breakfasts were absolutely the best we have had at any hotel that includes breakfast with the room rate. Comfortable bed and clean room. Just cannot say enough great things about this hotel. They go beyond to make happy customers. We're able to park our truck with our bikes on without worrying about theft or being vandalized . Hope to spend another couple of days on our way back and a week or so there next year.

    « Chillin' In The Desert »

    Lovely grounds and lovely layout add to the delight of staying at this hotel. "Trip" at the Front Desk was wonderful in getting us settled in. The help is just outstanding in courtesy and making one feel welcome. The breakfast is the best I have ever had in a hotel. Your breakfast is cooked to order! This is my first stay but far from the last. I compliment the staff and management.

    « In a great area of Palm Desert, close to everything »

    Stayed here for 5 days and have no complaints. we are a rewards member and got a great rate on the ground floor room. Yes the room is a tad worn, ( is probably a pet room but smelled fine and very clean) comfortable and had everything we needed. The made to order breakfast was a real plus too. the coffee maker in our room gave us delicious brew every morning and we enjoyed a few hours at the pool. which was very clean and a good temperature to cool off in. Also not many people using it. They could up their toiletries in the bathroom, no body lotion or cotton swabs, things like that. So many good restaurants nearby, close to the zoo and living desert... street fair etc. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « 2nd visit not disappointed »

    Stayed here last January and glad we stayed here again. Clean quiet rooms. Nice pool area and grounds. Great custom breakfast. Pet friendly. We did not have pet, but appreciated how guests took care of the many dogs we saw.

    « FRONT DESK AGENT PETE! »

    I am not one to be harsh and criticize a hotel because I work in this industry and currently work at a luxury hotel. So I do understand the labor and hard work the employees have to deal with in order for an operating hotel to run smoothly. All I expect is for the face of the hotel to show kindness and to be simply nice and show some consideration towards their guests. I understand that the level of hospitality is not a 5 star, but from my recent stay at the Best Western Plus Resort in Palm Desert Dec 31-Jan 1, I have never felt so angry and urgent to write a review or to contact a manager so fast. It was very early in the morning, and all I wanted was to just take a hot shower, I ran the shower for about 10 mins and no hot water was running, I then called the front desk. I never mentioned to Pete that I wanted to move rooms, I just simply wanted someone to maybe check it out and see why it was not working. I understood that the hotel was fully committed as they had no extra vacant rooms to be moved into. As soon as I called, I spoke to Pete who instantly became defensive for no reason. All I said was that I am not sure but I don't think my hot water is working. He replied "I do not know what you want me to do about it, you can deal with management tomorrow." I was in so much shock to his response, that I had no words. Pete then said, "we don't have any rooms so I cannot move you." I then say this is how you are going to accommodate me by being completely rude? I asked for his name, and he could not even answer me for a good minute, I then asked again saying, are you afraid to give me your name. All he responds back is that he is sending someone up to check the shower and hangs up and completely refuses to give me his name. This all could have been avoided if Pete just apologized and said he will be sending someone to check it out for me in the first place. It gets better, so my boyfriend actually went down to the front desk to get the front desk agent's name, which we now know is Pete. When my boyfriend asked why he did not want to give his name on the phone, Pete responded back saying "Go back to sleep! You just want to cause trouble." I seriously cannot believe how Pete even has this customer related job. I am so bothered by this experience. I don't even want any kind of compensation, all I want by writing this review is to get in contact with the general manager and to know that their will be some sort of better training for Pete and for the future employees at this hotel. The security who helped me with my shower was very nice and should maybe consider switching positions with Pete. The hotel room itself was perfectly fine, besides not knowing how to turn the hot water on for the shower. Would have been a pleasant stay if it wasn't for Pete.

    « Trip to Palm Desert to Visit Family/Friends »

    Room was clean and bed was comfortable to sleep in. Breakfast was great, with made-to-order eggs/ hash brown and bacon or sausage. Entry off Main Street was a little tricky to navigate. Reltive has also stayed at this Best Western and also very pleased with his stay.

    « Disappointed in this "Plus" property »

    We were only there one night traveling from Napa to Tucson, but it was not a good experience overall. The keys did not work well in the door and upon inspection it looks like someone had tried to break in previously as the door jam and lock were damaged. As we were on the ground level it created a bit of anxiety over safety and we were forced to use the sliding glass door to enter/exit. The room needed updating. For one night I guess it was ok, but would not stay there again. On a positive, the breakfast was a pleasant surprise and delicious!

    « Christmas day »

    We checked in this hotel for Christmas and it was very nice Lee decorated and this customer service what is excellent on arrival and departure. Our rooms were right next to each other and when I asked to change from a king or two queens there was no problem. They made sure we had upstairs on the third floor without a concern and the entire hotel is smoke-free. The only problem we had that we did not complain about was the bed closest to the door was wobbly and kept pushing against the plug for the bedside lamp and turning it off and on. The caulking in the bathroom on the counter was missing the toilet seat was wobbly and the heater in the entry was loud but it worked well just loud when trying to sleep everything else was great. The breakfast is the best at any best Western I would definitely recommend people stay here

    5
    « Worth every penny »

    The prepared-to-order breakfast added an elegance hard to match. As usual for Best Western the rooms would be hard to improve. The housekeeping staff knew their guests, somehow. Being addressed by surname by one made me feel special. The pool and hot-tub were well maintained. The grounds were beautiful. My partner and I were there for only 9 days.

    « Best Stay Ever »

    This is by far the nicest Best Western I have ever experienced. The breakfast was first class, the rooms were very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the staff were helpful. The pool and hot tub were both in clean working order.

    We really enjoyed this stay, great location, clean hotel, good pool although very busy. The grounds are nice. The absolute best breakfast we have had outwith a really expensive hotel. The chef made breakfast to order, there was a huge array of breakfast pastries, cereals juices too. We ate outside and it was lovely, what a nice way to start the day. The area around was great, lots of places to eat.

    Nice location in Palm Desert with excellent quality and upkeep of hotel facilities. We didn't use the pool but it was warm enough to do so and it looked very inviting - more like a spa than your usual BW!

    « Dismissive Staff and Outdated Rooms »

    I travel for a living and stay at BW often because of the rewards. I wasn't offered any perks on check in (standard procedure for BW Rewards members), the attitude of the staff is very dismissive, and the décor of the room I stayed in was so outdated the room actually FELT dirty. I would not recommend this hotel. Its incredibly expensive for zero service.

    « Too many questions (length of survey) »

    I think I have answered everything. What more can I say? OK! in addition, we arrived approximately three PM and was shfftled to the second floor which we handled ok using the elevator,thank you. Very few cars seen in the parking area,at the time and appeared to fill up rooms (first come gets the furthest rooms) Didn't want to keep complaining as we are seen as the old folks and you probably don't care for my survey anyway.

    « Very large hotel »

    The hotel is overall comfortable, even though it is a very large hotel. The employees were friendly and nice. The breakfast options were a little confusing as they were "grouped" into certain items. The bagels were not out with the bread, and the bread choices were limited. There was no microwave in the room and the closet doors did not open all the way. I would give it an average rating.

    « NOT A SAFE PLACE TO STAY »

    Don't get fooled by this picture you see on their website......it is not a hotel nor a resort. Its a motel......the suite I was in was decent clean, but customer service was a different story, the front desk staff and housekeeping were not friendly. Someone got into my suite the 3rd day of my stay, don't know how but a few of my items were taking. The next day some got into my suite again but nothing was taking but the suite door was ajar. I felt very unsafe and violate. Both times I filled a police statement, but haven't hear back what they find. The GM of this motel brush me off sounded that it wasn't their issues, the police looking into, basically avoid answering my questions I have send him thru email. This is the worst experience I have ever encounter.

Breakfast was outstanding. made to order eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. a great upgrade. There were several meetings going on in the hotel main building, but we heard nothing and there was plenty of parking. Beautifully landscaped, very relaxing....

    This was a medical trip for me, but our stay at the Best Western Plus in Palm Desert gave us a little relaxation on the trip as well, the room was clean, comfortable and nicely updated with cable tv with HBO, a small frig, (microwave available in suites, but available in standard rooms if you ask). There is an exercise facility on site,The staff was very cordial and prompt with our check-in. Also enjoyed the nice breakfast in the morning; a choice of Continental for those on the go, or sit down in a cool environment and enjoy a nice warm cooked to order breakfast before hitting the road.

    The hotel facility was fine for a couple of days away. Pool and hot tub were appreciated in the evening when it cooled off a little. Room was comfortable with couch and desk for sitting, and a nice little "bar" over the refrigerator for snacks, coffee, etc. Too hot to sit out on the patio, overlooking enclosed lawn area. Desk staff were not particularly welcoming, other than asking what floor level we preferred. Housekeeping staff blocked aisles nearly all day with carts, making it nearly impossible to negotiate past them with luggage. Our final morning housekeeping insisted we 'check out' at 9 am, before having breakfast or finishing packing. Despite that, we truly enjoyed our visit to Palm Desert, ride up the tram to view the solar eclipse assisted by very helpful Park staff, delicious meals at various local restaurants and cool temps around 102 in mid August!

    We stayed here twice in the space of a week. The first time we arrived late at night for a two day reservation. We were met by a gentleman who scolded us for not calling and saying we would be late and that our room had been released. He then said he'd make it work and turned and took our prepared room keys and registration material from the counter behind him and directed us to where our room was located. The room had a faulty shower and toilet that plugged soon after we arrived. We reported the toilet to the desk at breakfast and was told it would be taken care of immediately, but wan't until late afternoon forcing us to use other restrooms at the motel. Our second visit included a polite greeting, great room, and friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast is great with made to order items.

    We had a block of 8 rooms for a business retreat. In our room, someone walked in on us at 11pm saying that she was assigned to this room, apparently due to the incompetence of the front desk staff. A few minutes later a hotel employee came to our door to do a "security check" and wanted to know who we were! The person did not apologize for this disturbance. Our king bed sagged in the middle. The bathroom sink was clogged, and the bathroom lighting was dim. The furniture in the room was comfortable, and we had a large mini-fridge with freezer. Another person in our group had a broken shower knob and was unable to take a shower in the morning. The meeting room was not cooled down before we arrived, so we suffered through our entire evening meeting. The temperature was much better in the morning. We enjoyed the pool late in the evening, though it was like a bath at 82 degrees. The made-to-order breakfast was good.

The next day I went the pool maybe 18 Chaise lounge at the pool and half were broken the seat position was ripped always through. The chairs were HORRIBLY filthy and bird poop on everyone I have seen. The hotel was sold as a non-smoking environment I even had to sign my receipt stating I was not smoking. In the pool area three different people were smoking one was in the Jacuzzi smoking. AS I left the pool are several people were smoking on their patio area. For a non-smoking hotel I was very surprised to see how many smokers were openly smoking anywhere and everywhere. I went to the front desk to address all of my concerns to front desk hotel employee there only response oh sorry will call maintenance.

    Hotel is not hard to find. In typical best western fashion my room was not ready when I arrived. I was given a suite. They are pretty large rooms. Has a nice living room. 2 tvs although they need to update their tv service to something better and get a digital guide because the room guide is outdated. Channel surfing through that many channels with no guide sucks. Bathroom is nice size but the fixtures need updating. Not enough outlets and some of the outlets in my room didn't work. Pool is large and looked inviting. This is one of the better best western properties out there. Very clean and nothing in my room was broken or missing. I would stay again.

    The rooms were clean and pretty up to date. Free Wifi and breakfast a plus. The breakfast included made to order eggs, bacon/ sausage, pancakes, and homemade oatmeal, not just cold cereals, though those were an option too. The room was good size. The pillows on the bed were comfortable, but odd. They were smaller squares (5 per Quentin bed). I only had two small issues. 1. The hairdryer in my room was broken, but when I called the front desk, it was promptly replaced. 2. The shower rings on the shower curtain were so cheap they kept coming off. Oh yes,'one more thing.

    The room was clean, well equipped, and had a small patio. Even though we were close to the pool, it was quiet. It was walking distance to some excellent restaurants, and rather than a continental or buffet style breakfast, you could order custom cooked breakfasts. This was unexpected and saved a lot of money over our five-day stay.

    « Should have stayed elsewhere »

    While in a good location to El Paseo and other restaurants etc., hotel is below average in my opinion. Check in was ok with front desk staff that, as another reviewer noted, look at you like you're from another planet. Specifically asked them about smoking policy since I'm allergic to cigarette smoke. Was told people could smoke on balcony/patio but certainly not in the room. Requested a quiet top floor room, which was given, along the back of the hotel. Elevator painfully slow. Room was ok. Nothing special. Here's where the trouble starts. After completely unpacking and moving in for the week, I went into the bathroom and was gagged by the atrocious cigarette smoke smell. You cannot smell it when you walk into the rooms because the bathroom doors open up into the room, therefore the doors are routinely kept closed. Complained to front desk and asked to see a suite, since I "assumed " they would upgrade me. After looking at me like I was from outer space I was told that they'll have to charge me extra if I want to move. Suites were nothing special so stayed in the room and was assured that housekeeper would take care of the smoke............... which obviously didn't happen....hence the review. Desk staff could have cared less. Pool area was ok but hot since little breeze due to the way it's situated. Old decrepit pool chairs just kept off to the side. Workout room looks like nobody ever even checks it as the smoke detector battery was hanging out. No towels. Overall entire hotel screams of lack of maintenance items being done. Best part of stay was cooked breakfast which was prepared by very nice man with a great attitude. Checkout was a breeze (when almost no conversation occurs) as I was handed my bill with the words "here you go", and that was all that was said to me. No eye contact, no thank you, nothing. Will not stay here again. Period.

    I have a Best Western Diamond Elite status, which is the highest level for a Best Western member. This level provides you with "perks" such as complimentary room upgrade, being recognized as a Diamond Elite member upon check-in, a gift upon arrival, and others. This location failed to greet me appropriately, wouldn't provide me with an upgrade on days that they were available, and failed to replenish toiletries in the room throughout my 5 day stay. The reservation staff were not pleasant upon checkin and barely cracked a grin. Breakfast was included and when reservations gave me a token for 2 of us for 5 days, it was calculated wrong. When I addressed it with her, she looked at me like I was from another planet and didn't even apologize for her error. Reservation Staff did not wear name tags so it was impossible to give anyone a compliment or escalate my concerns to management. I called to speak to management after completing a survey and getting a generic email back from the hotel. Although he said all the right things, it was obvious he really didn't care. I wasn't compensated in an fashion. We did have a quiet room (when the dogs weren't barking) that faced the pool, and it was a great location to do things in the area.

The breakfast was good with hot food being prepared by 2 cooks, but the hours were 7 am to 10 am which were not early enough for us most days(we were hiking most days by 7 am). The room did have a mini fridge but no microwave. Parking was difficult on Friday night when an event was happening in the main building. I would request a room on the side away from the main building in the future. Most balconies faced the court yard although some faced the street and might not be as inviting for sitting in the evening. If you are on the first floor your sitting area outside your room opens into the courtyard. I would request a 2nd or 3rd floor room that opened into the courtyard for future visits. (we were on the first floor.)

    « NOT A FRIENDLY STAFF »

    Staff needs to be nicer and more frienly. My Mothers home is to small so we stay in a hotel when we visit. We have a small dog that we leave with my Mother so we don'r have to pay the pet fee at the Hotel. Cleaning lady saw some dog supplies in the room and told the front desk we have a dog. They would not believe me my dog was never in the room and charge me the pet fee. It wasn't that much but my dog was never in the room so I wasn't going to pay . Manager came out from back said we will let you by this time . They acted like I was a thief My family will not stay at a Best Western Hotel again.

    free cook to order breakfast was fantastic..chef's very professional and friendly. Beds very comfortable and overall location very quiet. Rooms could use a bit of updating from darker carpets and wall colors to something more neutral or light, but not a serious issue. Overall stay was very good and decent value. Definitely willing to return and stay here.

    We were very satisfied with our stay the first visit, however this visit the bed was uncomfortable and breakfast was not a pleasant visit. one of the hostess/ worker was very rude and when we requested more nuts she ignored us and never notified that she put out more nuts. Also, the food was not as satisfying as it was on our first visit.

    Even though the booking was messed up, the hotel staff made everything work out. The facility was very clean and well maintained. I was totally blown away by the breakfast served. Unlike the traditional hotel food served, they had professional chefs that prepared your breakfast to order. The hotel staff from the front desk to the maid service, were extremely courteous and professional.

    « Quick getaway »

    I've been to best westerns that felt like nice hotels and let's just say this isnt one of them. That's the only reason I'm taking away a star. But still the place appeared to be very well maintained and the workers were very nice. The place is really big but the layout was good so that it was easy to cut through to get to the breakfast area which was the highlight for me. You have to go to the grill area and the menu will give you a choice from 5 or 6 different breakfast plates. Each item can be a la carte too. I always got a side of scrambled eggs for my toddler. The only thing I needed from the buffet area was coffee but for my son, I was able to get fruit, plain cheerios, toast, yogurt and milk. The pool looked nice but we didn't get around to using it which was a bummer because I brought my son's swimming stuff.

    « Average motel, average price »

    My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights very recently. Positives: this was one of the more reasonably priced motels in Palm Desert and offered a substantial complimentary breakfast which was good. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We didn't use the pool, but this area looked nice and tidy and the pool looked inviting. Opportunities for improvement: the room was average - clean but showing it's age. As with other older motels with a door adjoining the next room, the sound-proofing between rooms was very poor. We were on the ground floor, and the floor noise above us came through quite loud. Unfortunately, the air conditioning in the room just struggled in the heat and never reached the optimum temperature. This motel was ok, but I would probably try somewhere else next time.

    « Great Free Breakfast, Cold Hot Tub »

    I stayed here with my mom while were exploring the area. Upon arrival we got upgraded to a suite and were enticed by the "private patio," which was a small space that looked at a wall (we never used it). The couch and chair in the suite were rock hard, though the beds were ok. The shower took a bit of time to heat up, but once there the water was hot and plentiful. The suite was pretty quiet though they were working on the one next door so we heard them moving furniture around a bit on our first day. The pool was nice though the hot tub/spa was disappointingly cold. The best part of the place was the free breakfast, which is typically not something I appreciate. They had a chef every morning ready to make you pancakes, hash browns, bacon/sausage or eggs - all made-to-order. It was great!

    « Clean & comfortable; good place to stay. »

    Stayed here 6 nights for a concert in Indio; it was convenient to the venue and markets/restaurants. Breakfast cooked to order by a great staff (even under duress as they were slammed all at once with concert goers stumbling in just before the 10 am deadline; management might want to revise hours based on occupancy) and housekeeping spotless. Clean pool area and fitness room. Not a new property, but obviously well-kept and repaired. Same room went from $98 to $340 during the stay, but I guess that's supply and demand. Was happy with our stay and the low-key, gracious staff.

    Pleasant, quiet, comfortable, well located, best describe this BW. Tho the hotel has some spots that show its age, it is remarkably well-maintained and pleasant. But, most importantly, the friendly, professional, knowledgeable staff is what makes this a wonderful choice when looking for an excellent value for quality hotel in this area.

    « Let me get the worst part out of the way »

    There was a horrendous parking issue the weekend I stayed here. A handful of kudos to the security & front desk staff for handling it with grace. The breakfast room was in chaos the three times I checked it out, so I can't speak as to the included breakfast. The rooms are gorgeous, the beds are comfortable, and the location cannot be beat. As long as the front desk is clear about the parking situation (we were told no spaces were available until after 11 due to a group in the meeting space, this is a hard wait after a long day) but everyone was really good about waking us up to move our car when spaces were available.

    « Palm Springs on a budget. »

    If you have to go to Palm Springs or in that general vicinity, why not stay at the Best Western and leave the upscale hotels for the ever-increasing investor class. You have better things to do with your cash. Such as, see the Living Desert Museum, take the tram to the top of the San Jacinto Park, eat some good food, visit the Air Museum, etc.

    « AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS! 1 STAR AT BEST! :( »

    This "hotel" looks ok from the outside, but the rooms are a hole in the wall with a TV and bathroom. I have stayed at several Best Western's over the years, and this surpasses any bad experiences I have ever encountered! I was shocked when I first entered the room, everything was quite old & out dated and looked liked they had picked up different furniture items from garage sales. I have stayed at some motel 6's that were nicer than this place. From the time I tried to check-in; which was quite the hassle involving the manager Craig (stating that my reservation was for the 19th and not the 21; which I had an email confirmation stating the 21th) To the time I handed the room keys back (which was 10 mins after viewing the room) I left this dive very quickly and swiftly! Customer service here was horrendous, from the general manager to the front desk staff no one cares. Clients want to be treated with kindness and compassion; none which will ever be found here. The front desk clerk didn't even ask me why I wanted to cancel my night stay?! They may have my $95.00 still; but I didn't leave with any bed bugs or any unwanted creatures either. I couldn't even bring myself to sit near or on any of the items in that room; GROSS! Nor, will I ever recommend or stay at a Best Western again in the states. Save your time, money and health but staying somewhere else! I couldn't even rate this place a one star!

    « Avoid this place »

    Looking for a quick overnighter in the Palm Springs area, we stayed here. The staff were friendly but that's about it for the positives. The room was terrible. It had a recently installed laminate floor which was fine, but the trim all around the room was the old trim just slapped back in place, not painted and all the joints were misaligned. The bed frame had rollers without any kind of locks to keep the wheels from rolling. On a hard floor, not the best idea. The bed would roll every time you sat on it. The mattress remind me of a jello square on a plate when you shake it side to side. It was about that firm. The bathroom had a glazed tile on the floor, extremely slippery when wet. The sink had been replaced but the bathroom still had the 30+ year old fiberglass tub surround in a pale yellow. All the floor surfaces were different heights, none matched up. No closet door. Whoever they hired for the remodel should have been taken to court.I wouldn't stay here again ever.

    « Not up to standard - faulty air conditioner »

    It looks the part but does not deliver. The flooring in our room was a type of imitation wood. It was dirty as our bare feet were soon black. The insect screen on the sliding door fell off. The worst part was the air conditioning did not work. Staff were helpful. The breakfast is hard to beat with chefs on hand to do your eggs the way you like them all included.

    « Good Bed, Great Breakfast! »

    « Good value for cost »

    We located this hotel searching online for a place to stay overnight with our dog while on a road trip. Our first visit was two years ago and we stayed again this month. The hotel is clean, well maintained, and located in a good neighborhood close to many shopping and dining options. A hot breakfast cooked to order came with the room - a real plus for the price. Hotel staff were helpful and we appreciated getting a room at the last minute. We thought our room this time with a single king bed and love seat was nicer than the room with two queens that we stayed in during our first visit. I did notice that the swimming pool was being worked on but that was not an issue for us as we had no plans to swim. Overall I was quite pleased with this hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again.

    This was a spur of the moment week-end get-away. We don't do this often and it was fun. There is always something to do in Palm Desert. We stayed at Best Western and were thrilled with the courteous, prompt, service of the employees. Breakfast was a full meal. Short order cooks were fast and good. They looked like they were having fun. Loved this place. The room we were in could use an updating but it was clean and everything use in good working order. We were missing a remote control for the TV but within minutes of making the request they were at the door with a new one. Excellent service all around. Everyone with a smile.

    « Staff way beyond our expectations !!! »

    We arrived at our home in Palm Desert after being away for 3 months and found our AC not functioning. It was too late to call for a repair person and too hot to stay in our place. We called BW Palm Desert and reserved a room. Upon arrival a short time after we arrived to check in and were told there were no first floor rooms with outside access available. We had our 20 lb beagle with us and felt that it would be too difficult to tale her through the hotel and down the elevator to the outside in the middle of the night (she is used to a doggy door). The gal at reception was wonderful and offered to upgrade us to a suite that was available which had a nice back patio that opened to a grassy area. I did not get her name but I must say she went way beyond our expectations !!!

    I booked this hotel from the best western website, and got a good deal on it. We drove out from LAX (Los Angeles Airport) and spent the night here. The drive to the hotel was pretty cool, you come through a giant wind farm, one like you have never seen before! Anyways, the hotel was a newer model. It was clean, and quiet. Our room was nice, with a firm bed. We had a nice view of the center court, which was nicely manicured. Air conditioning in the room was quiet, and comfortable. The shower had good water pressure, and the drain didn't drain slow, like a lot of other hotels. Parking was good too, plenty of it. The location was pretty decent, food was just down the street, and all kinds of strip malls. Bigger stores, as in Wal Mart was just down the road.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at this Best Western in Palm Desert. The staff was fabulous! They were friendly, warm, welcoming, and offered a very high level of customer service. My kids were thrilled when they were given beach balls at check in. And I greatly appreciated the follow up phone call I received in our room to make sure I had everything I needed and the room was satisfactory. The breakfast is cooked to order. Amazing! My kids enjoyed pancakes with has browns and sausage while I enjoyed two eggs, cooked any way I liked, with the same sides. The pool was refreshing and enjoyable and our room's balcony overlooked it, which was fun for the kids. Paseo Drive is just a few blocks down the road (Palm Desert's version of Rodeo Drive), and the hotel is walking distance from shopping, great dining, and even an Urgent Care should a member of the family need medical services while away. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this Best Western as the finest I have ever stayed in!

    We stayed here while on a road trip from Arizona to Oregon, mostly traveling on I-10. It's a bit of a drive off the highway, but having said that, the surrounding area is very attractive, all the staff including front desk, breakfast personnel and even housekeeping, were very friendly. The room was clean although showed some signs of wear and tear. The shower was a bit tricky to figure out, but the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioner worked great which was very important when it was 115 outside. The made-to-order breakfast was great too. The courtyard area was very pleasant and attractive also.

    « Horrible - Worst Western »

    Don't stay here!!! Avoid!!! This hotel makes for a horrible stressful unworkable room bad night sleep. The staff was extremely rude. It started with the key not working to the first room, then the second room because first room was keyed wrong wouldn't work. Third room given supposed to be near pool to make up for that we weren't but worse yet pool was FILTHY dirty. Guests didn't feel comfortable swimming in it and neither did my kids it was that dirty. When they tried to shower off - the shower water was inoperable. The staff was rude and discourteous about calling maintenance - maintenance failed to notice bath tub also inoperable so I had to go back again to guest service who further yelled at me even though I then missed my dinner plans by that point. No remorse or real apology by hotel - not even to this point. General manager still hasn't called back but it gets worse. We got back and tried to turn on TV. No picture! The volume was on, channels work but no picture! Turns out other yelpers have had this same annoyance and complaint! Well we call front desk it was intent ful as they had it on screen saver - pretty ridiculous to set the TV not to work properly when turned on. Then the walls were paper thin so we heard other TV in guest next door all night plus beds rolled around on floor and were not at all comfortable. Neither I nor kids could sleep due to those problems. To make matters worse, at breakfast my son with special needs awaited in line at the hot breakfast area when he got to front cook yelled at the little guy, told him he couldn't be there and had to go to back. It almost made my special needs child cry. I had to say he shouldn't be sent to back just because it took him awhile to read the menu once at front as he was special needs. It was embarrassing for him to have have others know his condition just because he wasn't treated right and needed protection but the cook was mad anyways after that and threw a scalding hot breakfast plate at me and I burned my finger. He should've set the plate down instead allowing it to cool. Then upon checkout my same kid had his foot scraped with open wounds on a door to their lobby that was sharp at the bottom. If that wasn't a nightmare enough, our iPad got left behind in the bed sheets the kids had left it and the staff never bothered to call to tell us they retrieved it. The find my iPhone tracker luckily did later that evening and luckily we were still local. We called to see that they had it. On first call a man answered who never called back. We were persistent due that we had it tracked. After multiple calls a woman staff admitted they had it and could be sent to me for a fee!! Luckily I said no I will be over to get it. Nightmare nightmare nightmare and because it was booked through Hotwire they say I have to go through hotel to get any remedy for all this disaster and hotel said they would email me to address problems I had but did not nor follow up with any phone call to me nor return my call. Worst western shouldn't be affiliated with Best Western. Just to be on safe side I will never stay at another Best Western unless you enjoy feeling like a character headed to Wally World in the Movie vacation which is only a light hearted way to find humor in such an unnecessary horrific experience. Avoid!

The only problem I had this time was their machine that codes the keys was not working very well. I keep my cards away from my cell, other cards with chips, but they only seemed to work a couple of times before I had to get them replaced. Not their fault.

    this hotel is "good enough" for a family stay. the rooms were clean & the beds were very comfortable. the free breakfast is cooked to order & really fantastic. but there were so many other little problems, it made the good things pale in comparison. the wifi never worked like it was supposed to. the room keys repeatedly stopped working (& i made sure to keep them away from magnetic things cause i'm aware that can effect them). & housekeeping was extremely slow. i had to call twice for housekeeping on our first full day - it was 4:00pm before the room was cleaned that day. all in all, it's a "good enough" hotel.... i would stay there again if i had to; but will look harder for a hotel in the area next time.

    « You get what you pay for »

    I guess your expectations should be tempered when you pay such a great price for a suite that includes breakfast. So for that reason I didn't rate this any lower than a three star experience. First off the room wouldn't cool off enough for my satisfaction when I moved the thermostat as low as I can it didn't help. I told the front desk and they got all excited saying no you can't lower it that much or it will freeze up the system like I would know that. They raced to my room to fix the thermostat. Second there was no ice in any of the ice machines their excuse was that everyone was hitting the machine all day. The breakfast was OK but not great. The bed was very comfortable and loved the coffee machine in the room and the free Wi-Fi. The location was well situated and the front desk folks were very friendly. They did bring me a bag of ice from their kitchen which was very nice. So overall for the price I paid it was OK

    The property was very nice, the latch on the fence for the pool does not work. I was not to worried, no kids. for those families that have small children be aware. Bed not very comfy and front office will call you to see if you need anything and wake you if you are trying to take a nap.

    Well maintained facility and convenient to the desert communities. We have stayed there before and the rooms are clean, property maintained, and the breakfast served is very good. We would recommend this Best Western Plus to anyone visiting the Palm Desert area, and the value that it offers.

    Very good value for staying in the Palm Desert area, with made-to-order hot breakfast. The facilities are nice, beds are comfortable and the free WiFi performed well. It is not as luxurious feeling like the higher end resorts, but it is an excellent value, especially the way I used it (lodging while visiting Joshua Tree National Park, which is about an hour away).

    « Check your Credit Card Statement »

    I never stayed at this hotel - and won't. I booked this hotel on bestwestern.com and cancelled my reservation well within the cancellation period. I received a cancellation number. However, when I received my credit card statement, I was charged for my visit. I called the hotel. The person at reception sent me a copy of my "receipt" showing that my room was cancelled without penalty. The person told me that they could not reverse the charges but would contact their manager who could do so. The charges were never reversed. I called again a week later and was told I could leave the manager a voicemail message, but that no one "would be available to return my call ... all day". I left a message. The manager never returned my call. I am now disputing the charges with my credit card company. Beware. Book somewhere else.

    We were there over this past weekend and found the rooms to be clean and adequate. The breakfast is the best part of this experience. We found that there were many many small kids and parents over the weekend occupying the pool and spa area. They were there with their floats, which I think are not allowed (but accepted apparently).

    This is a hotel that is always a good choice for the price, the staff, the cleanliness and of course the breakfast. The location is perfect , it's centrally located to shopping, tennis,golf.

The staff was great about making sure we had plenty of towels & pillows, the full made-to-order breakfast was fabulous, there were daily newspapers available for no charge in thy lobby each morning, and the pool area was large, with nice lounge chairs.

    We spent 4 days and 3 nights in this beautiufl hotel in Palm Desert. Our room had a little patio where we could sit by the pool and look out at the beautiful palm trees, the blue sky, just relax and enjoy. Which we did! Thanks to this very nice hotel, located in a great area, close to restaurants, shopping and not too far from La Quinta which was absolutely beautiful. In Palm Desert, there are streets lined with gorgeous Palm trees, manicured properties, not far from other luxury hotels and beautiful golf courses, etc. We were close to Palm Springs where we enjoyed walking on the main street, enjoying all the nice stores to shop in. We visited the Living Desert, which is very close to the hotel. We also did some shopping at the Outlet Mall not too far away and also walked along El Paseo, which is like Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. We also found a lovely restaurant on a golf course, where we watched the sunset and saw a magnificent view of the mountains. The weather was perfect. The staff at the front desk at the hotel were very accommodating, the room was clean, the maid service was excellent. The breakfast was delicious and the cooks were friendly and nice. There is nothing that I can say that was negative about our stay. We also met very nice people that were staying there at breakfast and at the pool. When we return, we will definitely stay here again.

    « Most expensive BW we've stayed in BUT not the Best we've stayed in »

    I know that the area is expensive and it was very close to the Living Desert, but for the price, I guess I expected a little more. I liked that we had "wood" floors instead of carpet but they were a little worn from cleaning water. The bathroom had been recently re-caulked so it felt very clean. The beds squeaked every time I sat or moved on it and pretty soft. We had a patio door out to the pool which was very convenient for our kids to go back and forth as needed since I could see them the whole way back to the room. Pool area was clean even though we had very strong winds. The breakfast was fine but the kids seemed to prefer the "make your own" waffles as in most other BW we've stayed in, instead of the chef cooking the made to order eggs. We did ask for 2 rooms next to each other on the ground floor (I use a wheelchair) and they didn't do that. Eventually they did get us both on the same side of the motel and both ground floor which was handy when we needed to get Mom from one room to see the 8 year old in our room in the middle of the night (ear ache). Okay stay but we have been in much nicer BWs that were not even BW Plus.

    Another great stay with some minor glitches in the Handicap Suite. The sound for the TV in the bedroom was not adjustable; I could not get on the internet so had to use a gadget, the little fridge would not freeze, the toilet seat was not smooth and made for an uncomfortable sit, and the bed height a real challenge for me as mobility limited. Despite these glitches which we dealt with, I love this place and the caring staff who go out of their way to be helpful. It's like home away from home glitches and all at times!

Our room featured a flat screen television, and a comfortable bed---no sore backs with the dawn. We started our morning of departure with a made-to-order breakfast. My wife had oatmeal and fruit. I enjoyed scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausage, and toast. Because of our late check-in, we didn't have time to explore the immediate area. The morning sun revealed a well maintained property.

The toilet was new and the tub and shower had a fiberglass liner cover (like the ones advertised on TV that make your tubs look new).. Actually that was OK!..

    If you are looking for a good budget hotel, this is it. There is nothing fancy about the property or the rooms, but they are updated and clean, and are very adequate. Also, all of the rooms are located on the outside of the building, with stair access at either end. It's only 2 storied, so it is very manageable with a suitcase. The hotel is located on the main highway with easy access to local shopping and dining. Although the property is about 20 to 30 minutes to Palm Springs, depending on traffic (if that makes any difference to you). But what I really liked about it, was the daily breakfast. There are several breakfast options to choose from, and then two chefs on hand to prepare them for you. Choices were pancakes, eggs, bacon, hash browns, sausage, cereal, muffins, bagels and waffles. In addition, there was a variety of fruit, coffee, teas and juices. To sum it up, if you're looking for a great budget hotel where all of the hotel staff are always very friendly and accommodating, I would recommend the Best Western Plus. We had a great stay at this hotel.

    When we checked in there were two girls at the counter and they were not too friendly or helpful. They had $1.00 sodas on display and I asked for one and they said they are cash only. Kind of strange, all the places I have ever stayed you could either put this on your hotel bill or something. Of course I didn't have any cash on me as usual and had to go to the grocery store down the street to get a drink. The room was marginal to say the least. Old and gave you the feeling of I knew I shouldn't have booked a Best Western and now I know why I haven't for years. The pictures looked ok, but they can be deceiving! We were in town to babysit a grandchild and this was close to their place, but should have known better from past experience with Best Westerns being undesirable. It was a depressing room and bathroom had a shower I wouldn't use. Yuck! Bed was not comfortable. All in all not a mistake I'll make again.

    « Little maintenance and it shows! »

    We stayed at the Best Western Plus for a long weekend, and were somewhat concerned about the mixed reviews-- we had every reason to bel The properly looks good from the outside. Others have stated that it was due for a renovation, but the problem lies beyond that. I knew we'd be in for problems from the moment I stepped into building two-- chipped paint in the hallways and elevator. We had difficulty opening the door with out key card (my wife couldn't do it, but with strong pressure, I was able to do so). Once in the room, my wife immediately complained about the loose toilet seat. I noticed that the bathroom door had a loud squeak when opening and closing. Some of the numbers on the safe were inoperable. The hallway light had a sensor which turned on at the slightest movement. One lampshade had cracks. At 5:30 PM, I requested that someone come up to fix the toilet seat, was told that the repair person would be sent up "as soon as he arrives;" we left our room and returned to find that nothing had been done. I took note of all the problems before going to bed to report it the desk clerk the next morning. We went to sleep on a bouncy bed. I was awakened at least twice during the night because the hallway light sensor turned the light on at least twice due to my tossing and turning in bed. The next morning, we were determined to check out, and I contacted the desk. We were showed a couple of other rooms, and were informed that, because we had pre-paid for the weekend, they could not refund our money. I showed them my Hotel Tonight app, which offered rooms at this hotel for $89 for that night, and asked for that rate. The answer was that if we booked through the Best Western website, they would honor that rate, but we were later told that, despite the fact that we booked through the Best Western website, we actually booked through a "third party" vendor. Instead, we were offered a waiver of the $10 daily pet fee. We agreed to accept another room, which we were told was "facing the pool" -- it wasn't. Two men came to our room to help us move, and we asked, "where was the luggage cart?" They told us that there was only one in the hotel and "someone had taken it!" (Later, from the parking lot, I was able to see into the lobby of the comparable Holiday Inn next store, and saw four luggage carts). We managed to complete the weekend in the new room (which also had a loose toilet seat!) Upon checkout, we were told that our only charge was the pet fee, I noted our promise that the fee would be waived, and the desk clerk said that we wouldn't be charged.

    « STAY AWAY »

    I normally really like Best Western and I am NOT a picky person who complains about everything. This Best Western was a nightmare - I booked 2 rooms. (by the way, I had to book the rooms online because over an hour long period nobody answered the phone at reservations) The doors and latches of both rooms looked like they have been broken into multiple times. (comforting) One of the rooms had the thermostat hanging half off the wall with wires exposed. The other room was 59 degrees when we opened the door - I put the heat on and set it at 70 degrees - we went out to dinner and when we came back to the room it was a whopping 95 degrees (I kid you not)....turns out the heat keeps blaring until you turn it off manually.... when I sat on the bed it felt like it sank a foot and a half....it was not firm at all - I thought it was going to destroy my back but in all honesty it did not. I won't get into graphic details but the bathroom was dirty complete with hairs on the wall. Bottom line advice - if you're staying in beautiful Palm Springs - you deserve a much better hotel than this Best Western.

    « Great breakfast »

    The breakfast was the highlight of the hotel stay. The room was nice and it had a pretty courtyard and pool area. The fitness room was large but had only a few pieces of equipment in it. The beds were a little hard for us, but overall it was fine. The location was great, being near shopping and restaurants.

    « Excellent Hotel and service »

    We came to Palm Desert for dental surgery. The staff at this hotel were very accommodating to us being this is high season in the Coachella Valley giving us a very reasonable rate and making sure we had a very quite and clean room away from traffic and outside disturbances. We will always stay at this hotel on our trips to the valley.

    Older buildings with new stucco walls. when you turn on the bathroom light a really loud fan also comes on. Ice machine on my floor didn't work, the old elevator lurches into action. The breakfast was really good, made to order eggs, etc.

    « Traveler Beware; Dishonest Cleaning Staff »

    My family and I checked out of room 140 on Wed Dec 23 at around 10:10. We arrived at our final destination about 4pm. It was at that time my husband noticed his IPad had not made it back into our overnight bag. I immediately contacted the hotel, gave them my name, the room number, & explicit description of where the IPad had been left. I was told they could do nothing until the AM when the cleaning staff was back as the front desk staff had no access to the lost/found. I called back at 9:45 on the 24th, no cleaning staff in to speak with. The front desk finally called back at 10:15 and said no IPad had been found. This is an outright lie. The IPad in question, (with a pleather red cover) was left on top of the three drawer, tall, cabinet, just behind the TV set. My husband used it that evening to locate a restaurant for us to eat at. Should he have put it back in the overnight bag immediately? Absolutely. Was he at fault? Yes. Should I have done a better check of the room before we checked out? Yes. But we travel with two dogs and a one year old. My concern was getting the baby prepped for another 5 hour car trip. But things have been left before at other chains and have ALWAYS been returned. In fact other chains have called me to say they found something while we're in route. Travelers, please think twice before staying here. Sticky fingers and opportunists.

    « Good big room, great breakfast! Terrible sound proofing »

    Loved the room, easy check in. Nice ample room well furnished and well maintained. Our only problem was when trying to go to sleep could hear our neighbor coughing all night. The noise could be heard trough the bedroom connecting door, this issue needs to be addressed as you could hear the other rooms conversations. Breakfast was great with great and quick service. Everything was delicious.

    « Daily Problems - the saga continues! Stay tuned »

    Arrived early P.M. Dec.26. At first no room as requested, but other person behind desk advised one was available. Go up to room & everything inc. heat shut or unplugged. Turn on heat (showing 65*) & 4 hrs. later 69*. Call front desk 7 we are moved to another room. Go to sleep in new room & middle of night Power outage. Wake up @ 5:30AM NO HEAT in new room. Still waiting for heat. Also requested microwave & 1 was sent up. Spent 20 minutes cleaning baked on foodstuff from the inside & just plain dirt on the outside. So far NOT a very good experience

    this is a place you would want to live if you worked in the area. It has a wonderful court yard and swimming pool with hot tub plus a fitness center what else could you ever want? The breakfast was one of the best that we have had at a Best Western in quite some time.

    « ROOMS NEED REPAIR »

    Sad to say, I have stayed at this Location many times before and had a better experience. It seems like the management has decided to not pay attention to both their employees and the maintenance of the rooms. Out of all the rooms, I'm given a room where the thermostat won't turn off. The closet doors are off the "Broken Tracks" leaning on the inside rendering the closet useless unless you want to do a door wrestling exercise. Not to mention the door locks that won't work and having to get the keys re programmed 2 separate times while the last time after interrupting the Desk Clerk's dinner at the front counter implying I'm the problem as I see others on the floor struggling with their key. If this was the last room in the Hotel I would understand maybe having some room issues, But by no means was this place full. Maintenance people just need to work on the rooms

    « Not Impressive »

    Nothing special and some rooms seem old, have an odor and very unwelcoming. The breakfast was nice and the dining area clean. We were told that the rooms on the first floor have been renovated. Carpet replaced with laminate, but in our room some of it had already warped.

    « Terrible Hotel in the Desert »

    Don't bother to stay here, there are so many more great hotels in the area. Embassy Suites right across the street. This is an old run down property trying to compete and fails miserably. There are holes in the walls, the elevator barely works and the bathrooms are tiny. The beds are not great and the pillows are lumpy. Keep looking.

    Pet friendly. Clean room and comfortable bed. We normally check in on this place because of our pet Balto. There is enough area to walk around the complex. I was not able to take advantage of the free breakfast because it is served at 7AM. I will miss my tee time if I have to wait- 630Am would have been better. They have a coffee make in the room anyway- so I was Ok with it and had breakfast at the clubhouse.. Sorry I have to type all of this blah blah to meet the 200 minimum characters.

    Nice place, excellent room, clean, quiet, need more room for the breakfast as it was always overcrowded, staff was nice.In a convenient location for downtown trips or access to the 111. Didn't get a chance to try the pool or spend time outside int he courtyard but all looked acceptable.

    « The worst night of my life »

    My family and I spent 1 night at the hotel and it was the worst night of my life (not exaggerating). The checkin process was fine. They gave us a room in a third floor but since we were traveling with a hyper 4 years old, we quickly got a noise complain at 5:30pm. I called the front desk and asked for a room in a lower floor which they were able to accomodate us. Everything was fine until 11:00pm when I was woken up by the noise next door of a couple that was arguing. The argument escalated from a simple yelling, to door slamming, screaming and furniture throwing. I quickly called the front desk so that they can send security over to calm down the situation. The front desk staff said someone was on the way but no one came. I called 2 more times after that as the situation was getting worsen by the minute and I can hear furniture being thrown across the room. The woman were screaming for her life and started to fear for my safety as there is a door that connects my room to their. On my last called, I told the the front desk that I will call the cops since no one is coming to help this woman. As soon as I hung up, the woman ran out of the room onto the court yard and at the point all the other guests were up and helped her calm down. The man was escorted out of the hotel. I understand that the hotel can't control the type of guests that visited the establishment. However, they should have responded quicker to my calls. I shouldn't have to call 3 times to report an alleged domestic violent for you to send a security personel. Something worst could have happened to not only for that woman but for the rest of the guests. It was the worst night of my life and to the top it off, the hotel didn't apologize to the guests or offer a refund for our experience.

    The beds were comfortable, wireless internet, and computers with printers available to print boarding passes, nice in room TV. I enjoyed the pool and the hot tub every day of our stay, if you want sun in the pool you needed to be there before noon. That can be very good because you don't want to get burned. They have a bathroom located outside of the pool which is very convenient. The landscaping around the pool is beautiful. We enjoyed the cooked to order breakfast every morning! I would definitely stay here again.

    « Always Very Good Value »

    We have been using this hotel for many years now and would not consider staying anywhere else in Palm Desert. The quality of service, the cleanliness of the rooms, the helpful staff and simply the value for money is what keeps bringing us back. The pool is always sparkling and the included breakfast is a treat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Most pleasantly surprised for a quick, overnight on a road trip through Palm Desert. Clean, spacious, welcoming, efficient, solidly built, a hot tub, hot-cooked breakfast- what more could you want on a road trip? Simply highly recommended, from one end to the other! Worth the small detour off the freeway.

    « Pre-Halloween Fright Night »

    Wednesday morning at 3 am during sound sleep the hotel phone rings. I thought it was a family emergency as my daughter knew where we were staying in Palm Desert. Instead it was an unsolicited recorded wake up call. We couldn't fall back to sleep as the mattress and pillows were really uncomfortable. Then, just as we fell asleep again, the clock alarm buzzer and flashing lights went on at 4:45 am, again, unsolicited. I thought the hotel was on fire . Later I learned the flashing table lamp was for the hearing impaired. I had to pull them out of the wall as I didn't know how to stop the alarm. I called the front desk and got the night manager who was very defensive. He said the wake up call was from the previous guests!! Hello, don't you know how to cancel wake up calls and make sure the clock alarm is turned off for new guests? The only thing that commends this place is the hot breakfast included. I noted that the sides of the tub shower were very slippery plastic and if you try to support or balance your body against it you may very well fall. There was no support bar there.

    « Bugs, Roaches and Smelly! Disgusting! »

    Our First two rooms had some type of bugs and my daughters had bug bites all over them. The Guy at the front desk(can't remember his name) said, "What do you want me to do about it?) I then asked to speak to a Manager. He told to call back in the morning because the manager wasn't there. I spoke to the manager the next day and he was very apologetic, nice and polite. We were moved and the rooms looked so much better BUT the rooms had the same bugs and roaches. In one room the bathroom smelled like urine and the carpet was very dirty in both rooms! Two rooms and two nights of horror! The housekeeper got mad because I asked her for two towels! Wow really! The breakfast was Delicious and the guys preparing it were very friendly and nice! That was the best part of our stay! If it wasn't for them and the food, I would give this hotel ZERO stars! I would NEVER EVER stay here again! BTW, This Hotel is FAR from being a resort and it doesn't look like any other Best Western Plus that I have ever stayed in!

    « BW Hotel in Classy Area »

    Expected a classier hotel in this area; didn't get it. When we first entered the suite there was a dead cockroach in the bathroom. I gathered it up and said nothing; chocked it up to being in desert environment. Later that night we returned to the suite after dinner with relatives and found live cockroaches running around the living room. I took the dead bug to the main desk, reported the problem, and was moved to another suite. No problem. Both suites had the same decor; tired and well used. The cook at the breakfast was nice. The grounds were nice but littered with debris that needs to be picked up. For a two-day stay I wanted a nice place; big disappointment.

    « The good, the bad and the uncomfortable »

    The good: Grounds very clean. Location, perfect! Breakfast....amazing!! The bad: The walls are poorly insulated at best! Woke up MANY times to noises of "all kinds" during all hours of the night!! Only two shower towels were provided in the room. The uncomfortable: The bed was pretty uncomfortable and the pillows were sized for a twin bed. The PLUS side: They allow Dogs:)

    « A bad hotel in Palm Desert »

    Looking around Palm Desert and its neighbouring towns that you wouldn't find a bad property. I liked the sound of the Best Western Palm Desert "Resort" when I book and it read well. I am not sure where the "Resort" bit fits in. Our experience started when we tried to check in. Admittedly we were early arrivals but I though I would ask if a room was available. The lady on reception was quite surly and put me straight in my place as to say nothing before 3 pm, later this was quantified by the fact that the cleaners where still changing rooms at 4.30 pm. We left and amused ourselves until 3pm. On return we were greeted by the same lady who this time did check us in, until I offered my Travel Agency business card she was abrupt, then the mood changed, here colleague "Trip" who was pleasant and informative also joined the conversation. There appears to be no standard uniform here as at previous Best Westerns. We went to our room after colliding several times with the cleaners and having to wait to use the elevator as the cleaners were in and out of them. Our key cards both took at least 5 attempts before allowing entry to the room as they di when gaining entry tot the pool. The pool needed a thoroughly good cleaning to remove the leaves and bugs that had accumulated. The show head in the room had a life of its own and would not hold in place to be used without human intervention. The bathroom needed cleaning properly and when my wife and I looked at the soles of our feet from walking across the carpet in the room they were black. The carpet certainly needed a good washing. We only picked this place as it was right across the road from the Ruth's Chris restaurant, that we had dinner reservation at. Based on all other Best Western Plus hotels we used this trip this one was not good at all. Even breakfast appeared somewhat chaotic, there were many cereal's around the room as well as toasters. They have a cooked food counter with chefs preparing to order (There is a menu with choices) . Guest just didn't seem to know what to do to get service, there was no guidance. In the end you just stood at the counter until the chef shouted you, when you waited for the food he was preparing for you. Overall Very Poor, would not stay here again.

    « Broken toilet, dirty and roaches!!!! »

    When I booked this hotel and saw the pictures online I was convinced I was getting a great value for the price, boy was I wrong! Immediately after walking in I noticed the weird layout. The restroom was filthy, the toilet was clogged and the sink was located outside of the restroom. The television was even hard to work, I called the front desk and was informed to turn the t.v. off twice and then it would work. I am 8 months pregnant and this was my last little getaway before my husband and I welcome our little girl so I thought I would overlook those things. We tried to go sit by the pool and relax but the disappointment continued, there were empty broken beer bottles under the lounge chairs and there weren't even any clean towels available for us to use. We headed back to the room pissed and soaking wet. The next morning we wake up, ready to leave the hell hole, and find a HUGE ROACH on our floor. This has been one of the WORSE hotels we have EVER stayed at, I will never ever stay at this hotel again.

    « First room had door jam busted out »

    First assigned room was insecure. The door jam had been busted out and it was impossible to close or dead bolt the door. The staff should have been well aware of this issue and fixed the door jam before assigning the room. Reassigned with no offer to help me move all of my belongings............new room was satisfactory although the popcorn ceiling really dates this facility. The room was clean and the linens and towels were adequate.

    « Very clean but the place is a bit old »

    If you're in need of a place to stay that allows dogs, try this place. It's a bit old/run down but our room was very clean. Beds are so-so. A/c worked perfectly which was my first concern. It's 109 degrees out right now! What surprised me the most was the free breakfast and what was served. A chef was there to cook. Most continental breakfasts have basic food choices. My complaints are the outlets didn't work in the room, the lamps didn't work either and there wasn't doggie bags on the grounds.

    Room was ok but air con was noisy so we turned it off. Strange sign on pool warning anyone with diarrhoea not to swim there. Nothing really wrong but it was an average hotel.
