Three days off...let's head for Palm Springs! And when we always stay at A Place in the Sun. A unique and beautiful place near the heart of Palm Springs. Beautiful grounds and "rooms". I say "rooms ". Our unit 18 had a comfortable bedroom, full large living room with glorious fireplace, full kitchen with everything you could want generously equipped. A sunny dining room. A full roomy patio. Just wonderful. And VERY reasonably priced. All units around a gorgeous Palm Springs yard and pool. The owners really care about their guests. Had a wonderful 3 days.
My wife and I (two 50 something travelers) stayed at A Place in the Sun Garden Hotel for our first time, and we were extremely happy. During this time of COVID-19, the owners had in place a well thought out plan for the property cleanliness and guest safety, and at all turns they delivered. It's a 50's style hotel with lots of charm and history. Booking and Check-In were done "virtually", and any questions we had were addressed promptly via text and/or email. Gate code, property layout, and room key lock box, were all provided in clear instructions, as were A/C, TV and DVD instructions placed in plain sight in the room. The room (#6) is a one-bedroom (King bed) with separate family room/dining area, Kitchenette (fridge, stove, utensils, glasses), enclosed patio with small…
I stayed here for 2 nights on a trip to see Joshua Tree. It's a charming place, very retro and nicely maintained. My room was tiny, but very clean and comfortable. There was a little kitchenette and my favorite part, an enclosed private patio. I loved how quiet it was. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here on a future trip to Palm Springs, highly recommend!
We stayed 2 nights over New Year's. Rick, one of the staff, called me earlier in the day to confirm our arrival time an suggested alternative routes for the drive from San Diego to avoid construction zones. Check-in was prompt. The lobby is stocked with assorted snacks, DVDs and books. We had one of the smaller rooms and it was a bit tight for two people. Room was equipped with TV, DVD player, wall-mounted electric fireplace, and small kitchenette. Grounds were well-maintained.
Back again for Christmas, and again had a great time. Rick, and the owners, make this a very special place. As others have repeatedly said, great low key vibe, quiet and friendly; very welcoming. Always super clean. This time we had a huge suite with a massive gas fireplace that we put to good use due to the "unusual" weather. Very cozy. Everything you would need in the full kitchen, and we used the BBQ as well. Can't recommend it highly enough.
