  • Older travelers

    No thing evry thing was herpole and u guys cheting us for buting this hotel in the net I can say it a motel for truk driver

  • Group of friends

    Great Customer Service. New managers were very nice and the maintenance man was very nice and aiming to please for what he had to work with. Owners need to invest into the property.

    Old Motel. Needs painting and new carpets. Smells inside the room. Dirty room. Referg. not working. Locks on the sliding door did not work. Not a safe place. Owners need to invest into this property.

  • Older travelers

    I liked the location. The front desk service was friendly. Free internet was nice too.

    The hotel was terrible. Here is a listing why: 1. tv had no remote control. 2. tv was broken 3. Hole in bathroom door so no privacy. 4. Paint peeling off of wall in bathroom. 5. no room service, at least for my room. 6. no hairdryer, which is standard, so I thought. 7. General look and feel of the Motel and my room was 'dirty' and 'old'. 8. No coffee maker in the room. 9. No continental breakfast. 10. Bed was 'ok' but could have been much better. 11. Room was minimally furnished - bed, dresser, one small table, one chair (all furnishings looked old and worn and dirty). 12. waaayyy overpriced... I paid $100 a night for this dump? .

  • Couple

    I hate this place it was so hot the a/c ... its better to stay outside (in palm springs) I had to book another hotel "motel 6" its much better than this place. I hate the fact that I booked before I went on this trip because this was the worst place ever. Even the phone in the room didnt work and the wifi which was on the list didnt happen in my room.

  • Group of friends

    we could hear everything in every room too noisy

  • Couple

    I really didn't like anything about that hotel. It really was the worst hotel I have stayed in my life

  • Single

    The staff was nice and helpful. During the week, it was very quiet. It was just a mile or two from downtown. It had available parking. When I asked for a non-smoking room, I was upgraded to a King Bed. That was nice.

    It is very run down. It needs paint and carpet and just care overall. The ice machine didn't work. There was debris and bees floating around in the pool. There was a horrific smell coming from a drainage grate near the hot tub. The shower was awesome, except it didn't drain fast enough. So, by the end of your shower, you're standing in water up to your ankles. The door knobs were shook when you opened the door. As a single woman, that made me a little nervous at night..

  • Older travelers

    told king bed none left,no chairs or table in room

  • Single

    Good location

    This place is awful. Smoke smell in the room. the whole place looks like it's never been maintained. Not worth the price at all. Do no stay here.

  • Single

    Good deal. $39 + tax for 2 people per night. Located on the outskirts of Palm Springs, near shopping centers. Outdoor accommodations include: pool, jacuzzi and shuffleboard. Rooms are clean with extras include small fridge and cable TV.

    Be alerted that during my stay on 11/26/10 the hotel is under new ownership and is undergoing major renovations. Many rooms heaters may not work and some with possible shower plumbing issues. With some work though, could be a nice stay.

  • Older travelers

    The television didn't work properly and was replaced promptly by the owner. Great location away from the main drag and close to great shopping which we enjoyed.

    The hotel needs quite a bit of work inside and out. Too many things need repair or be replaced. Sure we knew that this wasn't a luxury hotel, but expected it to be clean and comfortable, of which it was neither.

  • Couple

    Was very cheap and easy, not the best looking and looked as if it wasn't cleaned after the prior vacationer. Worked for me I am young not so picky and have no children or concerns.

    Rat poop on floor and trash in toilet, shower door was broken and windows did not lock.

  • Single

    Some improvements at the entrance....nice first impression

    There is so much more to do........................

  • Older travelers

    It was a place to sleep. The room was way too moldy for my sinuses. Smokers smoked right outside our room so opening a window was not always an option. If the weather had been warmer, we would have had to change our lodging. It was very poor for the price.

    The room was moldy. There were smokers outside. For the money, this place did not deliver as advertised.

  • Group of friends

    As a frequent traveler, with many, many hotel stays "under my belt," I can honestly say that "Desert Lodge" was the grossest, dirtiest, most disgusting place I have ever stayed at. The first clue should have been when, upon arrival, they charge the room immediately, and make you sign a "no refunds" form, prior to ever seening the room. In any event, the room was filthy, although filthy, truly, is not even an adequate term to describe the condition of our room. The carpets were stained, the sheets were not clean, the bathtub had slime all over it (I did not shower!!!), and the lamp over the bed had a screw where the light switch should have been (needless to say that lamp did not work). It basically looked like a scene out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie, minus the murder. I will never ever, ever, stay here again, even if the room was free, and it was the last hotel on earth.
