Cool hotel. The pool is heated and open pretty late. Front desk was accommodating, Ressa showed us our room and we were very pleased with the size of the room. Very close to all the downtown action. Great place.

This place is so fun. They have a bar and restaurant at the hotel, which worked out great because it was raining the day of our stay. We didn't have to leave the hotel. Ressa checked us in and gave us a fabulous introduction to this amazing hotel. Five stars all around!

Go for the pool. It's huge, heated, and you have an amazing view of the mountains. It's what brought me back after staying here once about 15 years ago. The bar is good, too. The room was gross (filthy carpeting and a dingy, tattered stuffed chair) and in need of updating (same bedding, fixtures, etc. from 15 years ago). I'm...

With a nice pool area, ping-pong and good location -- sad to say, would very likely not go back. Rooms felt way dated; water was cold; and -- luck of the draw -- screaming children well into the night. When Front Desk asked about loud kids (9.30pm), met with disinterest and told "quiet time" is post 10pm (at which time...

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel, starting with the front desk girl Ressa. She was very helpful, had a very inviting smiling and was very sweet, which was a great start to my stay and ended just as well. I highly recommended this hotel.

The Hawaiian themed hotel, like much of Palm Springs, seems a bit tacky and a faded reflection of a better time. The bed was very comfortable, the service was excellent, but there were many little details lacking. As an example, the comfy chair was torn in two places, there were paint chips missing from the wall and the window shade...

Electricity went out in the room in the morning when I used the hair dryer. Not my idea of a quality room no matter the price. Not some place I will go back to. Won't be going back. The room was ok however there was a leak under the bathroom sink. They do have a pool near by but didn't...
