“Surprisingly Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

The Holiday Inn Express was a nice little oasis. The pool area is very nice. Free wifi, parking, and full breakfast makes this quite the deal. The room was clean and attractive. The staff is very friendly. And there are quite a few resturaunts within driving distance.

This hotel is minutes from great golf, downtown Palm Springs and other nearby adventures. The hotel is centralize where you can be in La Quinta or Palm Springs within minutes to your favorite fun destination or favorite restaurant. This Holiday Inn Express offers all the amenities you need (e.g. wifi, plenty of parking, workout facility). What I enjoy most is the friendly and world-class service and the free hot breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side offers a nice scenic view of the Mt. San Jacinto Mountain view.

We just stayed here for one night and got a good deal on Hotwire. We had a single room, there's free wifi, free parking, free breakfast (good selection of foods for a free breakie), room was ok with fridge and coffee maker. Location is within driving distance to a Trader Joe's and some places to eat. We just pulled in for the evening and had great check in service from the evening clerk - super helpful about the area and friendly as well. Pool was great - we used it to cool down on a really hot evening and also went in the morning before check out. Breakfast was pretty decent for being free. Yes, our room had ants in the bathroom as well, although I wasn't terribly surprised given the location, and I was satisfied that at checkout we were informed that the exterminator would be visiting and this room would be added to the list. I didn't really have crazy expectations for the price I paid, and I was happy with the amenities and customer service.

The beds were pretty comfortable but we had to use the sofa sleeper and boy was that mattress old and torn up! Also, the fridge would not get cold so we had to use our cooler to keep our juices and things cold. Another issue was that all the restaurants that we normally see when travelling were quite a drive away. Overall I'd probably stay again if it was a good price compared to other hotels that are closer to restaurants. I just think the rooms need a little bit of upgrading/deep cleaning. The fitness center looked quite nice and extensive, but I didn't use it so I can't speak for the quality of the equipment.
