This was a great place for relaxation and peace. A good respite from the hustle and bustle..... I highly recommend it. Michael at the front desk is a 'rare find'. He is very insightful, helpful, and gracious. My first time there and will return.

I almost don't want to give a review because I don't want other people to find this special place. We have been coming here every year for 9 years. I absolutely love it. It's peaceful and quiet and you feel at home. The rooms are little apartments with everything you need and you can bring your dog. The management (especially...

Stayed here 8 times now, great location, lovely setting, nice rooms with a private patio, full kitchen and one bedroom. very fairly priced. Friendly people including all staff. Always clean, continental breakfast every day. Close to downtown, restaurants and grocery store but still a quiet spot.

The complex was very clean and the staff was great and helpful. They have quite the library if you want to sit at the and read, They also have a DVD Library and a putting green for some extra fun. The access is a little difficult for the elderly especially if they use a walker

If you are looking for glitz, make another choice. If you are looking for relaxing, and a taste of how Palm Springs was back in the day, this is the place. Everyone is extremely friendly, and it is centrally located to anything you might want to do. Great for families.

This place is a great option for those wanting to stay on budget while visiting expensive Palm Springs. They have a great outdoor pool and jacuzzi. The staff provided great service as well. We will visit again when we go to Coachella in a couple of years.

A motel with a story--built to house the crew on the move "A Place in the Sun" it retains it mid-century charm. The grounds are inviting--a pool and spa surrounded by palm trees, flowers and shrubs surrounded by the bungalow rooms. We stayed in a studio--the room was rough around the edges, the bathroom is straight out of the 1940's,...

I booked a visit here to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and escape some intense Canadian winter weather. APITS was perfect. The personal touches throughout, the conscientious and well informed staff, the kind owners and the very dedicated and attentive house keeping staff made our visit an absolute pleasure. The gardens and pool / hot tub area are a wonderful...

This is a comfortable, old style hotel. My room (#14) was small (as I expected) but got plenty of light. The kitchen area was small (tucked into a closet, I think) but was fine for what we needed...making light lunches/snacks/etc. It was fully stocked with plenty of utensils. The beds were comfortable and the wifi strong. The pool and gardens...

Well, my last review in May, 2014 was headed "Can't wait until the next visit". Unfortunately, due to the Canadian $ vs US $ it took until Christmas 2016 fulfill the dream. Norm has gone on to new endeavours but Joe is still there after 10 years and now we have Michael. Both are just great at customer service, friendly,...
