Stretch Your Travel Dollars in Palm Springs at These Budget Hotels

Over the decades, the desert oasis of Palm Springs has built a reputation as a glamorous resort destination for Hollywood's who's who. You don't have to look much further than the Coachella Valley's star-studded past or the celebrity names given to many local roads (Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore, to name a few) to see evidence of Hollywood's love affair with Palm Springs. But while there's plenty of the good life to go around in the desert, that doesn't mean you can't find a more affordable way to enjoy the desert. Plenty of affordable hotels can be found throughout Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley, helping tourists stretch their travel dollars that much further.

Budget hotels like the Caliente Tropics and Vagabond Inn offer some of the best rates you'll find near downtown Palm Springs. Both offer plenty of perks, too, including swimming pools, wireless internet and free parking. If you're looking to stay a little closer to Palm Desert or Rancho Mirage, you can take advantage of the great values at properties like the Hampton Inn Palm Desert or the Hilton Garden Inn Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage.
