Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andy951 Great location
My wife and stayed two nights and wanted to be close to the River. It was a two minute walk across the street. That was nice.
The pool area was nice and the pool water was perfect temp. My wife enjoyed the hotel's treadmill. Breakfast was average and would have been nicer if there was fresh cut fruit or made to order eggs. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room and property were very clean. The one major downfall we experienced was with the location of our room. We had a King Suite with a room in front and bedroom in back. The room was situated right next to the hotel's laundry room. The one they use to wash all the rooms linens in. The noise from that room came right through the wall to our front room making watching TV or relaxing a little tough. Other than that the room was nice. Had a refrigerator, bar sink and microwave which came in handy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UpstateNYBob Not just stop-over, but could be a destination!
My wife and I enjoyed our one-night stop so much, we could consider it as a place to go for fun, excitement and value for a longer stay! Thanks to your front desk representative, Bob; his experience and wisdom expertly guided us to the easy ride to Palm Springs to partake in a Saturday night of fun including great food, music, and an informative horse-drawn carriage ride. He pointed us in the right direction and we took it from there!
All of your other staff members were great.
We recommend your convenient location to the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gardener47 Not up to HIE standards
We stayed two nights here and were very disappointed. The HIE standards were not in place. We had two problems:
1) the carpets in the rooms and hotel were filthy, and
2) the staff did not know where to send someone who needed urgent care.
Let me be clear. Other than the carpeting throughout the hotel, the place was clean. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful. They had their limits on what they could do.
Upon arrival our room had filthy carpeting with stains and sticky areas. Upon complaining we were told that there had been a festival recently and that was why the carpet was dirty. That is not an acceptable answer but the front desk offered us another room in which the carpeting was slightly better. The carpeting in the halls and on the steps was equally dirty.
We had need of an urgent care ( not emergency room) but the front desk had no idea of where to send us. They asked another staff member who said there was a facility somewhere on Fred Waring. We had no name or street number. We found one place that was closed and another that did not take Medicare. They latter referred us to another facility which was good. It took us an hour to find the place. The front desk should always have a list of medical facilities. Staff should be instructed on how to direct people to them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChastheRadioMan An excellent stay
I was on a rushed business trip but I still found time to slow down and use the exercise room. I have stayed at many Holiday Inns across America and I must say that this one has the right mix of layout, convenient access to great restaurants but still with a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. I would stay here on vacation.
Get a second floor room near the end of the wing (e.g. 203 or so) and you'll feel like you're "at home". Take the stairs up from the lobby. Try the hot tub and the exercise room. If you like ribs just walk over to Babe's BBQ. It's delicious. A dozen excellent restaurants only a 4 minute walk away at "The River" complex. You don't even have to cross any major streets. Just a great location and ambiance. Highly recommended by a business traveller that spends nearly as much time on the road as at home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jh672013 Great Staff !!! but poor internet connections in room
This is our second visit to Rancho Mirage (first in 2012). We really enjoy the place and the staff. Being a Platinum member we were upgraded to a suite...but being so far down the hall, the internet was super slow....better by the front desk. Breakfast selection was same 2 out of 3 days.. would like to see a little more variety

Fantastic ideal location for shopping and eating. we felt very safe walking about in a lively area.
Very well looked after by all members of staff, all were polite and warm welcoming..
pool area was sunny, clean, secure, maybe a little compact but it was not busy when we were there ideal for a chill out session plenty for kids to swim and its OPEN till 11pm. huge clean rooms that are fantastic for an inn, big comfortable beds everything we needed and more. We had a peaceful sleep for three nights 2nd floor facing the front car park. breakfast had plenty of choice hot and cold to fill you up for the day. TIP:ask about some tickets for the living desert.

We have stayed here 3 times in the last year and each time has been great. Peter and his staff treat us as family. What an excellent holiday. The hotel is so convenient to everything. From the Tram to the River and everything in between. Close to Westfield mall also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chevy57 Extremely nice staff.
The only reason I'm giving rating of Good and not Excellent, is that I would like to see the room just a little more up to date, with nicer pillows on the beds, better fitting sheets, (our fitted sheet did not fit well. It consistently slipped off it's corner, curled and balled up under the sleeper).
The little kitchenette, and closet area needs better lighting. Although these task areas are fairly close to the bathroom light... they really require their own dedicated lighting because even during daylight hours they are very dark. AND...the sitting area could use a little more comfortable furniture. Even though dated...........everything in our room was immaculate, and we were generally comfortable.
We did not use the pool...rather crowded...but we stayed during a peak season weekend, so this was expected.
The breakfasts were basic and very good....nice selection of things like french toast, scrambled eggs, with good coffee. Fresh herbal and lime iced water in the lobby was much appreciated.
Oh.... and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon! Yummy!
EXTREMELY nice staff! All very pleasant and very genuine. We would stay at this property again simply because the people were so nice.

The properity was just what I have grown to expect from Holiday Inn Express. The room was very clean and comfortable. Food was excellent at breakfast and house keeping perfect. Special kudos to Daniel at the front desk who always was helpful and happy. Nice to be greeted personally every time you came and went.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Didi47 Good Room/Service Lacking
Stayed here last year and service has gone down hill since then. We're used to being greeted by front desk staff whenever we walk thru. Not once in 3 days were we acknowedged. At all other HIExp. we are able to get coffee in the brkfast area pretty much 24/7. At 8:00pm we tried all the coffee pots and all were empty. I informed the front desk that there was no coffee and the answer was."yes".
???? We had to go out to find coffee but knew better on subsequent nights. First day at breakfast, eggs were empty for 15 minutes, the only pancake machine was "down for servicing". No customary evening cookies. Staff seemed indifferent to guests needs. Not typical of HIExpress properties. Very disappointed. Not sure if we will stay here next year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by India123 Too Much Noise
This Holiday Inn is a newer hotel in a great location near lots of restaurants. The facility was clean. The room was comfortable and the bed was comfortable but we were on the first floor and the noise level was undesirable. I was awaken at 5:00 AM with the sounds of a shower. Someone in the room above us was taking a shower and you could clearly hear the water running. When I thought that I was finally back to sleep, I heard the cleaning crew vacuuming the room next door at 9:00 AM. Given that this is a newer hotel, you would think that Holiday Inn would have considered sound proofing the rooms.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TraciC66 If you need sleep, DO NOT check in to this hotel!!
To start off, the room was dark & dingy. The carpet was sticky, so we wore our shoe the entire time. The a/c unit was so loud it woke us up every time it switched on, which was often. Then, at 8 am we were rudely awaken by housekeeping shouting outside our door (housekeeping, washers & dryers were located across the hall from our room) as the housekeepers started the washers the water pipes that ran through our walls sounded like Niagra Falls. We got up, got ready and went to go get our free breakfast. YUCK!!!! The eggs?? were sitting in water, the gravy was the consistency of paste & everything else was gone. So we left. Before we returned the next night, we called the hotel to ask for another room, because of the loud housekeepers. We were told they were completely sold out. So if the housekeepers woke us up again, call the front desk & let them know! Hmmmmm.... Wouldn't it be to late by then?? I was pretty much told I was supposed to be out having fun, not sleeping!!! Do yourself a favor.. Stay somewhere else!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faye315 Coud be cleaner
We stayed 4 nights here. One day, our room did not get vacuumed at all and the maid never once wiped the coffee counter off. We could tell because the same spills were there every day. Two of our group in another room reported a dirty bathroom and someone else's used washcloth the first day. So the staff cleaned that real good. There was so much dust on the orange couch's armrest that obviously had not been vacuumed in many weeks.
The main open wooden staircase had a carpet runner up the center and off to the sides was sand and dirt, very obvious on the dark wood.Someone here needs to take a course in housekeeping or be given more time to clean.
The breakfast room was clean but too small for the number of guests.
I would choose a different hotel in the valley next time.
