Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Rancho Mirage - Palm Spgs Area
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Rancho Mirage
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 November 2011

The rooms do not have good soundproofing and we thought we would be up all night listening to a screaming child next door. There is a small laundry (one washer/one drier) on the second floor which competed for attention. We were able to get the laundry done by going early,. The breakfast is basic Holiday Inn with late service and few options. The room came with a small fridge and microwave, free internet, and parking. It is close enough to drive into Palm Springs in 15 minutes without traffic. The reception people were helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms have poor insulation between them, so you have to hope for quiet neighbors.

We got a fantastic deal here through Hotwire, so diverged from our usual Hilton-only hotel stays. [In fact, the HIE is right next door to a Hilton Garden Inn.] In brief, I don't think this HIE measures up to the HGI chain, though given what we paid we still got a lot for our money.

This hotel is large, clean, and in a great location (near all the Desert cities -- we were visiting elderly relatives), with a pool and a fitness center. But the pool is pretty small and the fitness center absolutely tiny (only one treadmill, in a hotel this size!). The breakfast is free, but the breakfast dining area is very tiny and there is no seating during much of the breakfast period. The rooms have coffee machines, but the cheapest and worst coffee machines I have seen. And the cleaning staff was a bit overwhelmed -- our room got cleaned at 4:00 PM...

I'd stay here again for the great Hotwire price we paid, but not for the normal HIE price -- for that I'd go next door.

My room was very fresh and new feeling with a flat screen TV, new furniture, microwave, refrigerator and a very comfortable bed. There seem to be two Holiday Inn Express hotels in Rancho Mirage. This one is next to The River Mall. The free breakfast was fine, and they had peanut butter which makes everything good. I did not try the eggs or sausage. They also have free wifi. There are many restaurants in the area. The River Mall across the street is an enjoyable place to walk around in the evening. There is actually a refreshing, man-made river that runs through it. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a pool and exercise room. I got an excellent deal on this hotel for five nights. It would have been worth twice the price. I may be the only person who goes to the Palm Springs area without a car, but the 111 bus stops out front, and you can get just about anywhere on it or connecting busses, and you can't beat an all day $3 pass. The staff works very hard, so I was happy to leave tips for them. The biggest drawback was that the walls were pretty thin, so that could be a problem if you had noisy people next door.

This hotel is great if you are just needing a place to stay, sightseeing and shopping. Good complimentary breakfast, clean and spacious room, free internet service and excellent customer service from front desk staff.

I requested a handicapped room with 2 beds. When we arrived I was told that room was not available but they would give me a suite which had a pull out couch. The rooms are very small with extremely high ceilings which are dark, full of shadows and depressing. They are also not truly A.D.A. compliant as there isn't enough room to use a walker or wheelchair to get around the bed. I guess they expect someone in a wheelchair or walker to be able to crawl into bed from the end of the bed. In fact, the bedroom part of the "suite" is so small, there is only room enough for 1 nightstand. In addition, to move air from the bedroom to the sitting room, there is a loud fan which is very annoying. The front desk clerk moved a chair out of the room to help us with space. The breakfast is just about the same as a LaQuinta - but I will admit the coffee was good.

Our group picked this property for it's value and location. We were pleased with the rooms and breakfast. We used their meeting room and everything we needed was provided. The location is excellent since it's just across the street from The River Mall which has excellent choices for lunch/dinner. The one thing that really stood out was the staff. They were very helpfull with any of our needs! There were no negitive comments about our stay from our group.

We came here for a long weekend to enjoy the desert and spend some quality time lounging by the pool. We were quite chagrined to realize the outdoor area was tiny, and in a closed off concrete deck right off the mall parking lot and highway. Oh yeah, for an 84 room hotel, they have about 6 lounge chairs. If you're coming to Rancho Mirage to hit the shopping mall, this is the place for you. If you want a bit of nice, outdoor, poolside relaxation, try other options.
