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.

I had several rooms reserved at this hotel. The staff of Daniel, Derrick and Lorraine were outstanding in helping make our stay comfortable. Everyone in our group commented on the outstanding service we were given.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BARBIE53 NEVER DISAPPOINTED
As a returning guest, I am happy to say that this property continues to offer consistent comfortable and friendly accomodations. It is welcoming to have staff address me by name, and I love the breakfast! (One of the reasons I choose Holiday Express.)
The only suggestion I would offer is that perhaps more tables could be brought into the breakfast room. Last time I was there, there was a shortage of seats, and some of us had to eat in the Lobby on our laps.
Thank you for all that you do. Overall my experiences have been very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VESELKA EXCELLENT SERVICE; COMFORTABLE BED, UPDATED BATHROOM
REALLY APPRECIATED THE OUTSTANDING HELP FROM JOSH, DEREK, AND MARIA AT THE FRONT DESK. THEY WERE ABLE TO ANSWER ALL OUR QUESTIONS REGARDING DIRECTIONS TO VARIOUS TOURIST SITES IN THE AREA. THE SUITES ARE EXCELLENT FOR TWO INDIVIDUALS, GIVING SOME DEGREE OF PRIVACY FOR EACH. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME MINIMAL KITCHEN FACILITIES ADDED TO THE MICRO, FRIDGE, SINK AND CUPBOARD. EXCELLENT LOCATION ACROSS FROM "THE RIVER" A SHOPPING, THEATRE AND RESTAURANT COMPLEX. ALSO CENTRAL LOCATION IN THE PALM SPRINGS AREA. TWO TV'S PROVIDE A GOOD SELECTION OF CHANNELS.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice folks but not the room we reserved
Very nice staff, but . . .
Booked a double queen. All had been assigned to other guests when we arrived. Ended up with a King and crummy fold-out couch/bed for 3 nights. The problem is with HI's overbooking protocol, not with this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by qk601352 good stay,will by back again
Stayed mid Feb for 5 nights.
Arrived at 1:30 am after a 14 hr flight. The night manager who offered us tired parents iced fruit water, helped us to our room and offered our 2 tired grumpy children snacks was great.
Suite, 215, was, roomy, clean, and had the most comfortable beds on the planet. AC worked well and was not noisy. There was a loose tile on the middle of the bathroom floor that I am sure they have fixed by now.A night light in the bathroom would be a worthwhile improvement to the room. WIFI worked perfectly close to the hall desk but as was intermittent near the windows.
Breakfast had something for all of us, a family friendly, tasty assortment of eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt, bagels and muffins. Beware that the smallish 30 seat breakfast area can be very crowded when the bus groups or sports teams are gathering.
Staff at the hotel were very helpful with local information and hiking tips.
Pool was fine, warm and there was plenty of chairs.
Hotel is accross the road from a Mega mall that has good restaurants and shopping.[ do not forget to ask the staff in the Chesecake Factory if Penny is working tonight, the rolling of the eyes is worth it..
We had a very good stay and would most cetainly stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AlexB Extended Stay
We spent about nine nights at this hotel, while enjoying the warmth and local golf. The hotel was central, comfortable and the staff very helpful. My wife enjoyed the evening cookies. On the negative side, actually more surprising than negative, was the food selection. We only saw cheese omelets once during our stay. There was never any bacon. One day they ran out of butter and I never saw any again for the rest of the stay. I hate margarine. The fitness center wasn't enticing. The machines looked old. The pool area looked nice, but it was a little too cool to try. We were upgraded to a suite which was appreciated. The carpets in both rooms we stayed in could have used a cleaning. All considered, we will stay there next time we visit the Palm Springs area.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express at Rancho Mirage. It started off with excellent customer service by Raquel who worked the front desk. She was on the phone when I arriived but she acknowledged my presence which I appreciated. The check in was quick. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. I would also like to recognize Peter who was in charge with group bookings. He was very pleasant and helpful on the phone. The continental breakfast they offered was good. Lots of variety. The kitchen staff worked very hard to maintain the food and that we never ran out of anything. Everyone at this Holiday Inn Express were wonderful. I will definitely recommend and stay here again.

I enjoyed my two nights at Rancho Mirage. It's centrally located - between Plam Desert/Springs. There's a nice mall across the road which has a number of restaurants and a multi-screen movie theater. good place to relax after a day of hiking. Also it's a short drive to the upscale shopping area of Palm Desert.
As always, a great clean and comfortable room. I love HIEX bed linens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olympia1 Wonderful Service and Terrifc Location
This Holiday Inn Express is a great place to stay - located in walking distance to The River, an area of shopping, varied restaurants, even a movie theater. Hilking paths are a very short drive away. What makes this Holiday Inn so special is the staff and management - they all go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We have been to more updated Holiday Inn Expresses, but the service here is unsurpassed and more than makes up for rooms that are slightly dated. Still have very comfotable beds, great tv's and plush towels! The jug of "orange" water in the lobby, the fruit and coffee that are available 24 hours - these are just some of the little luxuries provided for the guests that make a big difference in the overall experience of staying here. We would definitely recommend this Holiday Inn to others and look forward to booking another vacation here in the future!

We stayed at this inn after my husband had surgery on his eyes. The staff was extremely helpful, from the front desk to housekeeping. Extra pillows were brought promptly. My husband was supposed to have yogurt as his first meal. The front desk staff were happy to get us some from the kitchen. They also offered to bring breakfast to the room the next morning. The housekeeping staff were helpful in getting my husband into the room and helping with our belongings. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly.

Attended a conference at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa. Easy walking distance to shopping and the Resort. Applebees right next door. A bit of Serendipity: Look for the Tulip Hill Winery tasting room in the River Shopping area. Great wines! I discovered it just walking around.

My family flew in from Nebraska to see my very ill Father, we arrived at 11:30 am and met Derrick at the front desk, his young man should be considered the Concierge of the hotel. Always said hello, ask how we were doing, was there anything he could help us with getting. One of the top front desk people I've ever met at any hotel at any price. The hotel was clean, quite and well maintained. The room (a queen suite) was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaintPauli Palm Springs is over-priced but this hotel is not
I went last minute to the Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage area. I looked around and was shocked to see the crazy prices for hotel rooms (maybe if I golfed I'd be willing to pay more?!). But the Holiday Inn Express was well priced, accommodated my request for a room at the end of a hall, and for very little extra I got a microwave, mini-fridge, and seating area.
