We stayed at Colt's for 2 nights after camping in Joshua Tree NP. The property was just what we were looking for. It was quiet (no kids and only 11 rooms) and the rooms were well appointed. The only thing missing were glasses in the room but, I was able to snag two from the kitchen. The breakfast and lounge...

I mainly hang out at the lovely resort, Colt's Lodge...they have bikes and a heated pool, and good breakfasts. The grounds are beautiful. I have a favorite lunch place and happy hour. Usually get a massage and see a movie. All ready looking forward to my next visit!

My wife and I recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here. The place exceeded expectations and lived up to the numerous reviews. The atmosphere is relaxed, the entire property is inviting, and the staff is awesome. We are definitely coming back!

My wife was skeptical of the 11-room motel-like accommodations around a small pool and courtyard, but was pleasantly surprised by its quiet and serene atmosphere and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed sitting out by the small waterfall sipping a glass of wine under stars when everyone else had retired for the evening. I could only give it four stars due to...

In a great location, Colt's Lodge is a tiny haven of peace and relaxation tucked into a beautiful setting. With only about 10 rooms, we felt almost as if the lovely pool (24/7) with shaded chaise lounges and towels, spa, fountain with goldfish pond, and continental breakfasts were all just for us! We didn't use the bikes that were available...

Was absolutely magnificent. The rooms were so well appointed. Small lodge, so was a bit unsure when I booked as I am fussy. Very clean, great pool area and friendly staff. You will not be disappointed!!!

Colt's is all that is "cool" about Palm Springs. This was our third stay at Colt's. The first was by happenstance; second by plan and third for a party of a lifetime. We rented the entire hotel to celebrate our 60th birthday with our friends. To a person, they all loved the themed rooms; poolside atmosphere, beautiful grounds and wonderful...

We were here for two nights and found it a lovely place, a small oasis of tranquility within Palm Springs. A single storey of ten or so rooms run alongside one side of the premises, opening out on to a porch overlooking either the pool or gardens, which are well tended, notwithstanding the artificial grass. Palm trees and modern sculpture...

Hubby and I were in town for a few days in March 2017 and chose to stay at Colt's. It is a renovated motel with 11 rooms and is adults only. Colt's is gorgeous; they have meticulously redone the facility. The rooms are cozy and have microwave, fridge, hairdryer, etc. and comfy beds; hubby and I slept very well! The...

Our Room #5 at Colt's Lodge was unusually spacious and well-decorated. The shower is also extra-large, though the bathroom is small. The bed was comfortable and there were several pillow types from which to choose. We slept well. The walls are thin but the neighbors were well-behaved! There is a refrigerator in the room but no iron or ironing board...
