“Interesting from the outside, but nothing useful inside.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

Fascinating architecture, but inside there was nothing but lodging brochures and a few overpriced souvenirs. This place is on the way to the Palm Springs Arial Tramway, which had a wonderful selection of reasonably-priced souvenirs, including a wide variety of different items at the top and bottom.

“Stop here first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Brought my 70something mom to Palm Springs for her first visit. We pulled into the gravel parking lot next to the visitor center to take pictures at the Palm Springs sign. Very beautiful backdrop of desert mountains. The staff at the center were friendly and helpful, didn't run into the grouchy man. We got some maps which proved to be very helpful during our visit. The restrooms were clean. It was a great place to get our bearings and jumpstart our visit.
