Thread: Safety in Desert Hot Springs?

    Default Safety in Desert Hot Springs?


    I'm a single female seeking a hotel room and the only anywhere-near-reasonable price and distance I can find is at the CJ Grand (formerly Crystal Spa and Resort I guess) in Desert Hot Springs, which I was just told was an unsafe area. Any advice or suggestions (besides camping) for a room under $100 a night would be much appreciated.

    Don't stay in Desert Hot Springs. There is only decent place there, it's an Indian Spa that is very expensive. The rest of the places are just plain nasty & very unsafe.

    Palm Desert is good if you can find a room. Just keep calling the motel 6 at I-10 and Varner/washington every single day. People drop their rooms every now & then. You're bound to get one. Or offer to drop the clerk and extra $20 if they call you the minute someone cancells their reservation...

    For the money camping is your best bet. I heard nothing but bad things about the area. Prostitution, drugs, meth labs! It's a no, no
