I stumbled upon this great place by chance. One coolest little hotels I have been to. It's a step back in time. The room was amazing. Fresh and clean. Each unit has it's own private patio. Perfect for pet owners. The rooms have mixture of a vintage look and feel with modern touches. The grounds are well kept. It looks great during the day and amazing when it is all lit up at night. In the office there is Rick, he truly makes you feel welcomed. His hospitality made you feel like family. He is a true asset to the hotel. The worst thing about the hotel was leaving. We can't wait to go back!

A+ customer service - receptive, kind, flexible, and accomodating. Increadibly clean for a place that welcomes four legged family members. Very palm beach feel in rooms and on grounds. Misters keeping poolside a lovely temperature on a scorching day. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay. Will be back.

This place is a complete GEM! Flash back to 1950. These are roomy duplex house with everything in them, living rooms, kitchens big bathrooms and bedrooms. They have everything you need for your stay. The place is simply wonderful! Towels are fluffy, large and soft. Breakfast is a simple Continental breakfast. The office has movie to borrow. The pool is perfectly fresh but nice enough to swim at night. They provide pool toys. Pool open late as long as your next t to loud. The decor is true to its "turn of the century" model adorable. Kid friendly! Great place for families! We didn’t hear any noises from pool area or neighbors. We came 1st week of August and enjoyed ourselves very much. Staff is absolutely fabulous! Anyone giving this place less than 5 stars is a fool because

Upon arrival Rick was welcoming and informative. He informed me of a room upgrade, which was a real treat. The Suite was clean, spacious, and well furnished. I loved the private patio.The pool and grounds are well maintained. The misters at the pool are a nice touch. It was a quiet and relaxed stay. I will stay again on my next trip.

A return visit for us - this time a family getaway for a long weekend. We love this hidden gem that's centrally located to the great eateries and activities in downtown Palm Springs, yet you never have to leave the property, as they have kitchens in every room! The pool is great, the staff is friendly and helpful. We'll be back!
