50's style motel lacking 50's style service

1.0 on May 11, 2017

They had some rain before we arrived and the pool was filthy. The first rule of Palm Springs--keep the freaking pool clean! The second rule of Palm Springs - KEEP THE POOL CLEAN! The guy who checked us in then said that they can't control the weather, and the condition of the pool wasn't their fault. No, but not putting on a POOL COVER knowing there would be rain the next day is!! Sorry, but there really is no excuse for this. I was also told at 6pm that they would refund our money for the 2nd night stay, and we can go elsewhere. Rule #3 of Palm Springs. You do not ever say that to a customer. Totally offensive. Would have loved to have gone somewhere else if it wouldn't have been a total hassle moving and trying to find a hotel last minute. Did I mention that this was a birthday weekend, and they knew this? This guy had zero customer service skills. He then proceeds to make the happy hour drinks. I just asked for a club soda with cranberry juice. He brings me a tonic water with cranberry, HUH? I tell him it tastes weird and he says he used tonic water that he didn't actually have club soda like he said earlier. Um Ok. At that point you walk out and tell your customer that-- not bring them something that makes them want to vomit. Next we watch this same guy lead guests to our room. He figured it out before turning the door. IQ of a fly here! We made the best of it. He told us that the pool will be cleaned by 7am. NOPE, didn't happen till 9:30 am(hot tub never cleaned). Did I mention that the music from the pool area will be heard in your room for most of the day? The place itself can use a little love. A little run down and needs to be cleaned a little better. Like the tarp by the pool needs a sweeping.

Innkeeper Response
As I have answered your numerous postings on social media: We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Palm Springs Rendezvous. We strive to make everyone's visit a 5 star experience and realize we must have fallen short of your expectations. While some of the issues you brought up about your stay, like the weather (we just experienced Cold, Rain & Snow and a nasty wind/storm prior to your arrival), was beyond our control. We did try at the time to make your stay as comfortable as we could. I did offer to speak to you in person or on the phone since it was my day off, (especially when you threaten us with writing bad reviews) but you declined then requested not to be contacted after your departure. I have however reviewed your feedback and will put into place any changes we feel are necessary for the comfort of our future guests. I hope you find the perfect place on your next visit to Palm Springs. Regards, Robert Harrison Aikens Head Innkeeper

- Manager Palm Springs Rendezvous (innkeeper)


Best STAFF in Palm Springs!!!

5 on January 26, 2017

The Rendezvous has the best staff around. We stayed there in 2016 and would love to go back year after year... please keep Teri, Dan and Robert in place and we will be back. From the call before arriving, to the fun and thorough check in with Teri to the breakfast with Dan and back to Happy Hour with Teri and checking out with Robert. The kindness is beyond anything we have ever experienced. Our room was a delight as well. Teri showed us everything (including some of the other rooms so we could change it up next time) - and there was nothing left to ask questions about. She was the perfect hostess. Loved our room - loved the quietness of the pool area and everything from start to finish. Thank you Teri, Robert and Dan for a wonderful holiday.


Excellent

5 on July 09, 2013

We stayed there because our friends recommended it. And we weren't disappointed. It feels like you're back in time, authentic and cool 50's-60's vibe. I really liked the touches of home-baked treats every evening in your room. Tasty too. Breakfast is so much better than I expected. Every day it was a new smoothie, different fruit and a delicious main course. Comfortable beds, the sheets are so soft. They really pay attention to details like the dark wash clothes for make-up removal. And tell you so much at check-in. Personable, friendly and comfortable. We felt right at home, enjoyed meeting other guests. I also liked the music they played by the pool, Nat King Cole, Dean, all the fun stuff. The one thing we wish we had time for was the evening cocktails, but we were with friends every night. Next time.


Relaxation

4.6 on May 20, 2013

Hi, Such a great place to stay. Even though my stay was very short, I could not possibly have had a better time at this great BnB. There surely couldn't be more friendly or helpful staff anywhere in the world. As a young solo traveler from down under, I'd never experienced accommodation with such character. Beautiful setting with stunning scenery. I would recommend the Rendezvous to anyone. Thank you so much to the wonderful staff for support when I needed it. :)


Outstanding in every way!

Awesome staff! Awesome food! Perks that amaze me and the add ons to make the stay even more special are once again - awesome! We highly recommend the Rendezvous!


A Birthday to Remember

5 on April 06, 2013

With luck I found this fabulous place online........truly a one of a kind.......The owner and staff were so nice and friendly..........the three course breakfast and evening drinks and appetizers was top drawer..........delightful, delicious, and delectable. The Honeymoon Suite is beautiful, and all our accommodations were met. We will be going back..............you also meet some wonderful new friends....


Great getaway!

4.8 on April 01, 2013

This was our first visit and we went with some friends who had been before. We had an amazing time. The service was fantastic. They serve breakfast everyday and the food is really good and very large portions. They do a happy hour at 5 pm with apps. The staff is witty, friendly and laid back. The room was fun. We stayed in Route 66. The rooms come with a mini fridge with ice, soda's, water and tea and coffee. They have homebaked treats each day. They have nice bath products so no need to bring your own. The sheets were so comfortable we bought some to take home but the bed was a little firm for our taste. It is very close to downtown and you could walk, or a cab is only a few bucks.


Honeymoon Hideaway was the perfect ending to our Honeymoon!

5 on January 20, 2013

We found this place online by luck, and it was the perfect ending to our busy 2 week honeymoon! The rooms were super cute, the staff wonderfully nice, and the appetizers and breakfast was the perfect finishing touch! We loved every minute of our stay here, and the food was so to die for that I actually bought a cookbook with their family recipes used at the Rendezvous. This place has so much charm, I would recommend it to anyone! We will be back someday!


Christmas at the Rendezvous

4.6 on December 30, 2012

This B&B has the age and the character that goes along with an early build that has been taken care of and upgraded. Rooms were good size, clean and the beds are top quality. Fresh baked sweets daily in your room and the cocktail hour was a good time to meet your neighbors. The morning breakfast was yummy and filling. We will be back.


Awesome place...

5 on November 21, 2012

This is an awesome Palm Springs getaway place. The Staff were all warm and welcoming. They really cared about your stay. Betty is a one of a kind hostess. She made sure we had everything we needed including ideas on where to eat and what to do. We certainly will be back to the Rendezvous to check out one of the other themed rooms. Highly recommend!!!
