Right on busy Palm Canyon Drive, Quality Inn Palm Springs makes for a cozy base camp to explore the city's family-friendly attractions, from splashing at Knott's Soak City water park to riding the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of Mount San Jacinto. Inspired by the natural setting, the inn is surrounded with palm trees and desert brush, and the interiors are suffused with a subtle southwestern décor.
Within guest rooms—which feature one king bed, one queen bed, or two queen beds—a palette of warm beige and hunter green add warmth to the refreshingly unfussy setup. Kids can play video games on a Nintendo system or tweet about the hotel’s soap selection with the pervasive free WiFi. Outside, a palm-fringed pool and misted deck help beat the heat. Although the hotel is just minutes from several popular Palm Springs restaurants, guests don’t have to venture offsite for homestyle breakfasts at Carrows Restaurant.
Often referred to as a "desert oasis," Palm Springs boasts a slew of traveler-friendly attractions. Popular stops include Palm Springs Air Museum and Moorten Botanical Garden. Palm Springs is also about an hour from the breathtaking desert expanse of Joshua Tree National Park. :m]]
