Loved this place from the min we walked in. Maria(person checking us in) was lovely, so welcoming and very helpful with explaining everything at the hotel and also around the city. Will definitely be back, sooner than I thought I would.

Amazing stay:) Had a friend visiting, and was looking for a relaxing place. We found it! Such a friendly atmosphere, made you feel like family:) Will be back again soon. Loved how the pool was open 24 hours and 92 degrees.

Stayed for a weekend getaway with my husband. Very clean and the staff is friendly always offering a drink and asking how your stay is going. We enjoyed the community kitchen and grill and made a nice steak dinner and they do the clean up! We would definitely stay again.

Do you have bicycles for guests?
The hotel has free retro-style bikes for guests to use. Management is really nice, and all rooms come with a lovely "snack" basket. I recommend this hotel. You will really get a taste of the old Palm Springs if you stay there. Also they have hummingbirds in the lush gardens that surround the pool.
