We spent a couple of nights here. The room was comfortable. It had all expected amenities. Everything worked. The bed was good. The grounds are well kept. The staff was professional. The breakfast does get boring.

This is a nice inn on Cook St. close to the 10 freeway. Comfortable larger rooms with nice pool, exercise rooms, barbecue area and complimentary breakfast and evening snacks for guests. There is free wi-fi, free parking, fitness center, pet friendly and kitchen in every room. There is a fire pit with comfortable seating in the barbecue area.

This Hotel is well kept, has a very nice layout, and is close to the 10 freeway for easy access to Palm Springs, indio and other local area desert communities.

Good location and OK amenities. Pool is nice. But this property didn't feel like other Marriotts to me. Housekeeping finishes late in the afternoon and evening. It's difficult to check in early or even at 4 PM, their check in time. One visit it took until after 6pm to get a room (we arrived at 4pm). Marriott Rewards status won't...

Management response:

Hello "Marriott Standards" I am sorry you we not able to check in early. We have been running a very high occupancy and guests tend to stay later during these holiday times especially when they have children. I hope you come visit us again when there are fewer families. Regards, Dan

The room was nice and comfortable but the service was not up to Marriott standards. From check-in to phone. Some of the breakfast was good, like the scrambled eggs and they did have some better yogurts but most of the rest was lacking. They don't know the difference between whipped cream and whipped topping.

Dear Nothomemuch, I am so sorry that we dropped the ball when it comes to guest service. We have recently purchased the hotel and have been making leaps and bounds with associate training. Oviously, we need to revisit the front desk. Again thank you for staying with us and I can assure you that positive changes will be made. Regards,...

I have been staying at this particular Residence Inn multiple times over 3 years, and this location has really declined in the last couple of months. Rates have gone up, perks for members (including upgrades) have gone down, and things at this Palm Desert location appear a little run down despite the price increases. The staff that used to work...

Dear Decline in member perks, Thank you so much for your valuable comments. I am truly sorry that as a trip advisor guest you feel that "perks" have gone down. We do make every effort to accommodate our Marriott Rewards Guests first starting with Platinum. In so many cases, we are unable to due so because of occupancy. I hope...

We enjoyed our stay at Residence Inn Palm Desert. We are Marriot Loyalty plan members and have stayed at a variety of Residence Inn properties in the past.

If you are in need of a place to stay and prefer Residence Inn's this is the place for you. This particular Residence Inn is quite large.
