Touch of old Palm Springs in Palm Desert
First time here. The area is great and convenient. They are in the middle of remodeling rooms but it didn’t affect us. It had the feel of old Palm Springs. It’s set up like a motel with two floors with no elevator. It has a kitchenette if needed or wanted

Enjoyable visit
I enjoyed this place. I stayed just 2 nights but the maid service was superb both mornings. There is a kitchenette with all you need to prep meals, however I ate out with friends so did not use, but certainly would next time. The bathroom area is smallish with nice shower but no bath- worked fine for me. Great little private patio that gets beautiful Palm Springs morning sun with a nice mountain view. Nice jacuzzi and friendly guests. A lot of guests were into tennis...taking classes and watching matches. This is still a more "old skool" than modern facility by appearance which I like, in fact I seek that out in Palm Springs for the long as it's clean which this was. I never explored the workout room or sauna but hope to next time I go.

Beautiful grounds and pool, quiet community. The unit was comfortable and spacious, and the office staff was friendly and accomodating.
