Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AZLimey TV System Needs finalization and better instructions
Upon arrival it was noted that the installed system did not match the channel listing in the room, nor did any on screen instructions match. having concluded that the system had just been updated, It was confirmed at the front desk that the remotes or TVs still had to be programmed and the associated listings upgraded. Our three night stay was marred by attempts to stumble through the available channels with no 'decoder ring' ... in the end the system was not used ...
At the same time as I reported the above to the front desk I added that I had noted that the elevator certificate was out of date. I realize that it is only a two story hotel and that I might appear to be paranoid but a posted document is just that; posted. It was explained that CA was behind on their inspections and that the elevator was being inspected on a monthly basis pending proper certification. Wouldn't it be easier, and more re-assuring, to post and explanatory note next to the official but expired certificate. That way your clients would know that management was not asleep at the switch.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elin27 Very dirty room
Very dirty room. Bathroom was littered with hair. Very dusty over cabinets and counters. The carpet is very dirty and not vaccumed. Stains all overall.
Overall very disgusted experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil123456789 Business travels beware - All others OK
Pros: Better than average looking hotel and rooms. Prices are reasonable. Staff was very friendly.
Cons: Room smelled horribly of smoke (Yep, non smoking room.) Walls are thin. Heard next door TV very easily. Restaurants in the parking lot played LOUD thumping music starting at about 12:30 or 1am. Couldn't go back to sleep.
Pet Peeves: Pillow cases that say "Soft" and "Hard." They were all soft. Maybe the brand really did pay attention to putting soft pillows in the covers labeled soft, but not any more. Just throw any old case, on any old pillow is the new norm. (Not just at this location.) The bed was a little firm for my liking as well. Towels were thin and not soft. Breakfast ran out of milk. Every other Holiday Inn I have stayed at uses cartons of milk. This one was the first to have the milk in carafes, which were empty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RajB-Seattle Great hotel at a convenient location
We enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn Express. It is conveniently located midway between Palm Springs and Palm Desert. You can walk to a movie theater, restaurants etc. The staff is courteous and professional. Breakfast is great with several choices.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sharekey Nice surprise. Very clean, comfortable and convenient.
Loved the hotel. Only thing I wish they would have told us about the reset button for the jacuzzi which is under the sink. Other than that, it was great. Close to the River which has all the restaurants and movies. Close to everything.,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robert1113 Clueless desk clerk, dirty carpets and worn out matresses
Our check-in required three trips back to the check-in counter. We were assigned a room where the main plumbing stack (wet wall) ran a wall of the room and there was a continuous loud sound of rushing water. This was room 108. The second room assigned was 208 (?), with the same wet wall issue! When we discussed the issue with the desk clerk, she was clueless as to what a wet wall was. As we had trudged back and forth on the trips to check out the rooms, we noticed the hallway and room carpets were very soiled and dirty, the only thing missing was a chalk outline of where a body had been to complete the crime scene! The carpet in the third room 241, was worn but passable. The mattresses were obviously worn out and the hotel had put on lumpy mattress toppers to perhaps get more life out of the worn mattresses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NK66 The Staff was the BEST....
What a fun place to stay. Very handy location. Walking distance
to the River. Close to ElPaseo. The best choice and the best value
The staff at the front desk was great. The DM couldn't have been
better....It was my birthday and we created a lot of fun.
Thanks for everything. We plan on going back in March and we will
definitely be staying with our new friends at Holiday Inn Express

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by allanorn Fantastic value in an excellent location
I spent three nights here to get away and chill out. I selected this property due to the number of really good member reviews posted on the IHG site. I was not disappointed at all during my stay.
The location is fantastic. It's a couple of miles to Highway 74 (Palms to Pines) and getting to Interstate 10 is easy (just go up Bob Hope Drive). It's entirely possible to not drive during your stay if that's what you want to do. You can walk to a bunch of restaurants, including quite a few at The River. The restaurants there are generally really good, but they can get pricey (just be forewarned). The Starbucks is in The River on the side opposite of the hotel, but it is one of the better ones to go to locally for your latte needs. If you need it, the CVS is another couple of minutes beyond The River.
Parking and check-in were a breeze; the staff were helpful and courteous. The Plat amenity was a bottle of water (always useful in the desert). There was no upgrade love for me, likely because it was a three-day holiday weekend and I believe the room categories above me sold out.
The room was recently updated and everything was in great order. The pillows and bed were comfortable and the bathroom was in excellent shape. The included microwave in the room seemed a little dated, but I didn't use it. The usual caveats of the Holiday Inn Express brand apply: the HVAC is below the window and breakfast is the typical fare. I didn't have any concerns about them. One great benefit was that the room I was in was very quiet and dark, especially early in the morning; I had a couple of nights of great sleep and I didn't hear any of my neighbors.
All of the staff, especially housekeeping, were quite accommodative to all of my requests. The only thing that caught my eye was that the pool wasn't picked up and ran out of towels late one evening - it may have been an oversight since it didn't appear to be a chronic issue.
Overall, this is a favorite HI Express of mine. I'll definitely recommend it and come back if I need a room in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mick95 Great service and friendly staff.
We have stayed at this very comfortable hotel many times over the years. From the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff they are the best. In particular Derek and Raquel so helpful and pleasant. Comfortable rooms, large bathrooms, great pool area, complimentary computer services. Breakfast was always great although I think a few healthier choices might be added.
We will be back next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cindib wonderful staff
Staff was awesome. I asked for a few things that they had no problem helping me with. Bed was comfortable and I wanted to take the pillow home. They had an art festival right down the street and we were early they suggested we go. It was wonderful we had a great time. Pool was warm too. We will be back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nanwoz Great Location, WALLS are as THIN as PAPER!
The hotel is located in a great location, however the walls are as
thin as paper so you can hear every drawer opening and anyone who takes a shower upper, next door, below you. You will be sure to be awaken.
We checked in on Friday afternoon for a wedding on Saturday, we got up on Saturday to explore the city before the 4:30pm wedding when we returned to our room at 2:30pm no room service and our towels were still on the floor from the previous evening. When we left at 4:10pm, I had to flag down a maid and ask that they at least leave us clean towels for the moring,. :-(
We MADE OUR OWN BEDS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Want2havfun Excellent except for the rugs
Not fancy but excellent for the price. The breakfast area was very small and cramped but a good variety and everyone was able to successfully negotiate the area after a couple of try's.
Our only complaint was that the rug in our room was dated, stained and probably not for barefoot walking.
We would definitely return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ43 Very comfortable stay in the desert!
We spent the previous night near Tucson and were not ready to drive through LA on our trip home to Washington State(yet). I found this hotel (online) at a great price and we decided it would be an excellent place to spend the night and IT WAS! The location and its surroundings turned out to be just what we wanted. We had a very pleasant stay. We liked having an Applebee's restaurant just a couple minute walk away in the parking lot. Easy dining choice for us. IHG provided an excellent breakfast and that made our getaway great for the next day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dicmicaz Typical HIE property
Was happy I was able to be accomodated with an early arrival. Room was nice, mostly confortable, but the air conditioner was too noisy to run while sleeping. Good breakfast (wheres the salsa?).
Pool and tot tub are really nice, but right next to the busy hiway, so a bit noisy.
Carpet in the corridors could use a good cleaning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulandElaine Front desk staff is excellent!
This particular Holiday Inn Express needs a nicer pool area which includes more comfortable loungers, as well as tables and chairs in shaded areas.
Also, the front desk area is extremely plain and cold...needs more atmosphere and warmth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glomex2013 Great suite and love the location.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had a minor problem at check in but it was fixed up immediately and we were happy. There are lots of restaurants within easy walking distance so after a long day on the road that was nice. The breakfast selection is extensive with something for everyone. The breakfast area is small but there are other spots to take your breakfast to. While we were there they just opened up the meeting room just down the hall. Great stay and will definitely return here when we are in the area again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Surprised by quality & service for price and location
My boyfriend and I were able to book this room the day before our stay. The staff was uber accomodating and we were quite surprised by the quality of facilities and location given the affordable price. Staff was really helpful when we realized that my 6 ft 7 in boyfriend may not fit comfortably on a Queen bed! We will always suggest to our families in the desert that they suggest their guests stay at Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TR52 Excellent accomadations
From the front desk staff to the cleanliness of the room to
the fine breakfast assortment I was very pleased with my stay
at the Holiday Inn Express Rancho Mirage. Since I am currently
constructing a new residence in Rancho Mirage I will have the
opportunity to visit the area in the next 6 months. This hotel
will certainly be my first choice and I will recommend it to anyone
who needs to come to the desert on my behalf while my home
is under construction.

I had not stayed at a Holiday Inn Express yet. It was a very nice experience. Derrick at the front desk was very helpful with ideas of things to do. I will return there again if ever in Palm Springs again. There breakfasts were very nicely displayed and the food was good.
