This hotel is one of the better places we've stayed. The area was a little sketchy but the rooms and common areas were very nice. The breakfast was good, well presented and complete. The staff was attentive and friendly

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Palm Desert for one night. This was our second time staying here, having stayed once in Oct 2017. This stay was a bit of a disappointment. The bed and pillows were still very comfortable and the room nicely appointed but it wasn’t as clean

We stayed at this hotel because it was close to the McCallum Theatre. After the show it was a hop skip and a short jump and we were back at the hotel! The gentleman at the front desk was quick and friendly. The hotel itself was very clean and the beds were super comfortable.

We wanted to visit Palm Springs, and chose this location as being close by and probably better value for hotel accommodation! Low rise building, we asked to be put on an upper floor, so had a quiet room even tho' it was overlooking the car park. Little balconies are a nice touch

Good place to stay despite under renovation. Room was nice and clean. Staff service excellent. Good for families. Continental breakfast can be improved. More health and hot non meat-seafood-poultry options should be explored. Will recommend to friends.

Does this property allow smoking on private balconies?
The hotel is designated as "smoke-free." Smoking is only permitted in designated smoking areas outside of the hotel building. This would mean that smoking on private balconies is prohibited and you could be subject to a rather large cleaning fee if the hotel were to find damage.

I don't believe they have walk out rooms to the pool. I do know they have ground floor rooms, with windows onto the pool. I believe all the rooms open into an interior hallway.

Unfortunately I can't provide an answer to that one since we didn't stay by the only saw the sign saying pool this way . My guess probably the pool has a fence around it for safety reasons but I'm sure it not a far walk might call ahead.

"Rooms at street side have nicer view"
"Facing the pool has great balconies"
"3rd floor is probably best."
"If you don't mind using stairs, get one close to the stairs by front entrance. Elevator is slow."
"low floor is a bit dull as there is hardly any view."
