    First, this is a motel, not a hotel. The deadbolt did not latch. No microwave, no safe. Good area. Nice staff.

    My go to hotel in Palm Springs. Love what they've done with the place since I was last here. The Reef Lounge is great and I'll have to try the new Mediterranean restaurant when I return. It looks delicious and has good reviews from local friends. All over a wonderful stay and I look forward to my next visit
