The three of us spend 3 nites at Shiloh over President's Day weekend. Was this the same place that a majority of the previous reviews that I read were referring to? The welcome attendent was stressed out beyond description when we arrived. There seemed to be several "maintenance" issues that were being troubleshooted. Most of the ice machines were out...

We stayed in Shilo for two nights in February, booked it from hotels.com for about 80 bucks/night on a weekday (it was way over 100 on weekends) which made for a very good value. Big and warmed pools (separate for kids and adults) were just 20 meters from our poolside room. There was also both Finnish and Turkish sauna's, but...

Courteous service. Big clean room with stone floor, comfortable beds and furniture, and worn but functional bathroom fittings. A basic microwave oven and small refrigerator were included. The room had two doors. A solid door led to the parking area and a glass sliding door at the far end opened on a lawn beside the swimming pool used by families....

For a place called Shilo Inn Suites Hotel, our room sure looked like a normal non-suite. Two queen beds in a slightly larger-than average room, but by no means was it a suite. That said, it was a nice room, complete with amenities such as iron, ironing board, coffee maker, microwave oven, refrigerator, and free wireless Internet. Besides the non-suite,...

We loved the room and the setting. Room was clean and good sized, modern with amenities like small fridge and microwave. Had extra sink outside the bathroom and a balcony overlooking the pool. King size bed was very comfortable. Would stay again and recommend highly.

Good location, near everything. Nice room. Quiet. Friendly staff. Got a good discount via Expedia from what it would be as a walk-in- $61 vs 109. We couldn't be happier and will come back.

Shilo's slogan, "Affordable Excellence" certainly applies to their Palm Springs Hotel. Stopped here for one night while traveling cross country by motorcycle. "Room Saver" had a coupon for $79.50. More than worth the price. Very large double queen room on ground floor with microwave and refer, a desk and separate table and chairs, and very nicely appointed. Very comfortable beds....

We stayed here in early Sepmeber, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The lower room was large and clean. Thegrounds were well maintained, and the pool and spa spotless. There seemed to be less than a dozen people there the night we were there, so it was very quiet. They have a free internet station if you don;t have a laptop....

The Shilo Inn isn't fancy. It is clean, well maintained and well priced. We have two young children and this hotel was perfect. The rooms upstairs have carpet and the rooms downstairs have tiled floors. We prefer the rooms downstairs that have easy access to the pool. There are two pools, one for families and one for adults. It was...
