Basic, reasonable motel near free Buzz Bus line
Posted Nov 14, 2016
This motel is reasonably priced and fairly basic and fairly old but in okay condition. It has a vintage, 1960's motel atmosphere but is fairly up-to-date. It is clean and has comfortable beds, and has a nice pool and very large outdoor spa. There is a Buzz Bus stop right in front of the hotel. This is an extremely useful free shuttle service that goes in a loop around downtown Palm Springs, Thursday-Sunday, 1 pm to 1 am. The motel is also right across the street from the Moorten Botanical Gardens, which has very interesting collection of cactus and other desert plants.
Because this hotel is inexpensive and basic, the ammenities in the room, like towels and shampoo, are pretty cheap. There is a free included breakfast, but the door to this room was always locked, even during breakfast time, so you had to use your key card to get in. This makes sense, but seems petty and annoying. This room is fairly out-of-the way anyway, in the center of the property, and people are not likely to wander in off the street.
There is also a laundry room and exercise room.
The best features of this hotel are the excellent location, and the nice outdoor pool area.
