Very Nice Stay
Really enjoyed our stay (myself and 2 teen grandchildren) for 1 night. Plenty of Hot Tubs surrounding a nice size poo - open 24 hrsl. One was right outside our room. Room was decent size and has coffeee maker, refrigerator and microwave. Restaurant in building and we had a very resonably priced breakfast. Guest computer avaiable. It is close to end of a main street so many restaurant choices further down the street. Staff were very nice
Would stay again but definitely longer than 1 night.

OLD and Hall ways smelled like Pot.
The hotel is OLD and very very dated. The hallways pretty much constantly stunk like pot. The front desk would run out of pool towels all the time... and then never wash more.. you were forced to drip dry.. the pools were actually the best part of the whole place. They are older but they are still nice.

On the Edge of the Mojave Desert
Desert Hot Springs is one of the only places in the world with both hot and cold springs.
The view from the desert plain to Mt. San Jacinto and the Coachella Valley, is spectacular.
The mountain is so high it still had spots of snow in July.
I was so wishing this motor lodge or hotel had been able to enhance that experience.
The good things? Friendly staff, quick check-in, meticulously clean and appointed rooms.
A good restaurant on the premises with a thirty year history in the area of serving well made Italian food.
Lightning fast room service ,from the Capri restaurant. Decent shrimp scampi with Prosecco .A full service spa to relax and beautify.
There are five large hot tubs of differing warm temperatures, filled by the hot springs.
I could not offer the same praise for the swimming pool, but I hope it was because the pool maintenance staff was on vacation.
Summer is a low season in the Coachella Valley due to the blistering heat ( gets up to 115 and above), but the pool and spas saw some heavy use from lots of people.
Guests had littered their poolside lunch items and trash blew around in the gusty wind. No one around to clean it up. Pool entry areas near vending machines could have used a good sweep.
The pool water wasn't very clear. There was a visible layer of stuff on the pool surface: leaves, grass clippings, dirt and an oily layer.
There was one lifeguard who was working on her clipboard and not watching the pool who might have gotten a net to skim this stuff off, but no.
It made me wonder if the pool filters could have stood a rinse-out.
I am a fish who has eagerly jumped in every motel & hotel pool I've ever seen, but the condition of this one made me hesitate, and take a thorough shower later.
People who don't swim might have a general good impression of this scenic and geologically unique area and hotel, but those who want the experience of swimming in clear spring water may be disappointed.

This is the place to be for an relaxing weekend !
Right when we walked into the hotel Kevin greeted us and took so much time with us to get us an room there weren’t many left open , not only that but gave us the best deal for the room we’ve ever encountered! He was by far our favorite staff at this hotel . We frequent the area but because of Kevin we are forever miracle springs resort guests ! He even drew us an detailed map to get to our room and even told us all the places in the area to get some great food . Every hotel needs their own Kevin ! Our room was cleaned and tastefully decorated. The pools were by far the cleanest we’ve encountered. The restaurant was dimly lit but had an exquisite ambiance . The bartender made our drinks just the way we like them and even made us a round right before closing although it was a pain for him I’m sure . The changing rooms were clean with that same ambiance not to be ignored .check out was quick and painless ! The kids had a great time playing in the pools they didn’t want to leave ! we even swam after checkout (we never do that ) . I wouldn’t change a thing about my stay !
