This was my first time in Palm Springs, thus we (my friend and I) were not sure what to expect. Our stay at Spa Resort Casino turned out to be wonderful!! The hotel is conveniently located around many restaurants and shops. We were about a block away from the main street. Walking distance was about 5 min to most restaurants. We absolutely loved the staff, pool, and casino. Staff were always helpful and eager to answer any questions. Upon check-in, I informed the hotel receptionist about this being our first time in Palm Springs. She was kind enough to inform us about hotel amenities (pool, Java Caliente, casino). She also suggested taking the complimentary hotel shuttle to the casino if we did not want to walk in the heat. However, this was not necessary. The casino is a very short walk away (next block). Our room was spacious and clean. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and I was able to easily fall asleep. We stayed for 3 days and had no problems with the hotel or our room. The only downside that I experienced was the pool. Our first day in the pool was very enjoyable. Our second time in the pool was not as enjoyable. There were kids playing with plastic cups and plastic wrappers in the pool. Thus, I kept seeing these items floating around. The parents should keep an eye on them and monitor their children while in the pool. It would also be helpful if the hotel staff monitored the pool as well. Aside from this I would highly recommend this hotel! It's perfect!
