We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and met the owner of the Lido Palms. The guy is truly friendly and showed us the room (in fact a flat): clean, cosy, we almost felt like home. Only 11 rooms are available in the resort and it's clean everywhere. The 3 different spas made our time there so delightful, especially when it...

If you really want to relax, stay here. The manager is very helpful; the rooms are clean and the guests are quiet. This isn't some high-end spa with a million "treatment" options, but that just means it's for real people who really want to relax and rejuvenate. It's ideal for people who live within a couple of hours as a...

My partner and I won a weekend at the Lido Palms after visiting the LA Times Travel show two years ago. We have been back several times since. This is a wonderful, relaxing place. The owners are helpful without being obtrusive. I love the Lido!!!

Very relaxing. Pools are super clean and uncrowded. Pool temps were variable, in the 90's to 104. Manager was very accommodating & even gave my husband barbeque tips on their giant gas grill. Rooms are basic but you can cook if you like and beds are comfortable, it was cooler in Feb. than expected, and on occasion gets windy. Bring...

We had a great time staying at Lido. The people were wonderful! The other guests all loved it so much that they were all regulars. There is nothing better than stepping out of your room, walking 10' or less and being in those hot springs. Very relaxing! We also stayed at Two Bunch Palms during that trip because the Lido...

I've been staying at Lido Palms in Desert Hot Springs since the early 1990s. But I hadn't been for over a year and was concerned about changes new owners might have brought when we visited for my husband's birthday in early January. No need to worry: this small (under 20 units) motel retains its period charm and has added elegant...

My husband and I have been coming to the Lido Palms since God was a child. Literally, it's been 15+ years, and we have seen three sets of owners along the way. We love the Lido Palms for many reasons: located in Desert Hot Springs, it has a natural source of hot mineral water that is incomparable in the US....

Thanks to other Trip Advisor contributors for alerting us to this great property. It might not have occurred to me to look across the highway from Palm Springs in Desert Hot Springs to find a reasonably priced but comfortable lodging option, but the reveiws were so compelling we had to try the Lido Palms. Despite the 12-15 minute drive to...

The Lido Palms is a refreshing alternative to the big corporate hotels that are so common these days. We stayed two days and luxuriated in the three pools that the resort offers. The rooms are clean, perfectly maintained and there is simply a relaxing feel to the place. This is a great place to stay if you are touring the...

Stayed here for 4 nights in November and loved it. The pools were perfect. The air was cool (50ish), the pools warm and the moon full. The room was bigger than my first apartment and the kitchen area a very welcome feature. Our host (Greg? Gary?) was helpful but unobtrusive - the perfect host. I hope to be back soon.
