The Embassy Suites La Quinta Hotel & Spa is a solid choice for budget-minded families seeking relaxing accommodations in Old Town La Quinta, a quaint shopping and dining village in Palm Desert. The hotel is within a 20-minute drive to The Living Desert Zoo, a wealth of golf courses and Cathedral City.
Spacious two-room suites have separate sleeping and living room areas and come equipped with free Wi-Fi. Though the decor is basic, they're comfortable and sensible for families with younger kids who might have an earlier bedtime. Guests get free cooked-to-order breakfast in the morning. An evening reception is held in the open-air atrium lobby, where guests can sip free cocktails and sample snacks while mingling with other guests.
The pool is nice, which is important in Palm Desert. It's big, well-kept and surrounded by comfy loungers. Other amenities for kids include a pool table and a video arcade. Terra Bistro, the casual on-site restaurant, has a number of kid-friendly dining options -- though it's hard to justify too many meals there with all the restaurants in Old Town La Quinta just a three-minute walk away.
