“Better than your average Motel 6”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We needed a place to stay in between our other long term reservations while we were in Palm Springs. Motel 6's are not usually our first choice, but I must say this one is different. The staff is extremely helpful and obliging and the manager lives on site. The gounds are spacious, clean, and the pool area is very inviting. Our little dog was welcome and at no charge. Our only complaint was the bed. My wife found it quite uncomfortable.
If you need a reasonable, clean, friendly place to stay in Palm Springs, then this may be your answer.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

I have stayed in all kinds of places from high end resorts to common motels (and even worse). There are many places I've liked, but I always like to try new places. So, if there is a place that I return to time and time again, it is a place to stay.

Make no mistake, the rooms are pure Motel 6, and not even the most modern version of Motel 6 with the fake wood flooring and euro-styling, but this is my favorite Motel 6 in the entire country.

Why? Well, it was one of their first (number 9 I think) and it has a style not present in their cookie cutter motels from later periods. It sits in a nice quiet curve in the windless part of Palm Springs. There are a couple of nice places for dinner within walking distance. The pool is massive for a Motel 6. The landscaping upscale. I really enjoy drinking the free morning coffee at one of the sheltered tables. Town is a hike, but the bus stops right outside, wisking you either downtown or out to the other towns in the valley. I especially like riding over to El Paseo and Rancho Mirage.

I always ask for an upper room overlooking the pool if posible (which makes watching your car a bit more difficult). The laundry and vending area is clean. The employees helpful. The price is OK, but has been creeping up over time.

Will I return? You bet I will.

Room Tip: Upper floor is better. Pool view is better.

I stayed here again. Very basic but clean and cheap. Free HBO. Free local calls. Walk to the Koffee Espresso Shop for coffee drinks and pastries. Hang out with the urban hipsters next door at the Ace Hotel (formerly a Howard Johnson's). But pay one third what the hipsters are paying. (Not exactly-the word is out so you will encounter hipsters now at this Motel 6--a first). My only complaint--the hipsters staying at the Motel 6 woke me up at 2am when they stumbled home from the place next door.

Room Tip: Face the rear of the property.

Nice property with pool. Friendly and efficient staff. Small rooms. Clean, but old smoking burn holes in the sheets, blanket and bed cover. Good price of $50 in this city of $100+motels during high season. Be sure and count the annoying $3/day extra charge for wi-fi.

Room Tip: We use the fan setting on the a/c unit to drown out the inevitable parking and other guest noises.

The room is bland as can be with almost nothing on the walls. Our bathroom had spiders crawling on the walls of the showers. I realize Motel 6 properties are no frills but there was no shampoo supplied in the room and none even available at the front desk for purchase. The pillows were flat and the mattress was worn out - needed to be replaced. All in all I would pay slightly more at the Caliente Tropics next door (where we have also stayed) for a MUCH better experience. Won't be staying at this Motel 6 ever again.
