I never wanted to leave. I can be very picky and difficult to please but this hotel is perfect. I would stay at Hotel California again and again. Love Curly, love the pool and garden, love the kitchen, love the decor, love the staff.

The Hotel California is a small boutique hotel owned & run by very caring, personable, honest and genuinely enjoyable people - that being Larry (owner), Jay and Curly, and Mike. These people, along with the housekeeping staff, are who make this place special. These are some of the great happenings that we encountered while staying there. 1. When we initially...

When we made the reservation, we were told " you're gonna love it here " ... And it is true, Hospitality Plus from the moment we checked in to our departure! We have not encountered a more accommodating staff - including some 5 star hotels. The Courtyard, shaded by a majestic Rubber Tree, is the relaxing place to gather and...

The entire staff of Hotel California gives new definition to collegiality, personal attention and guest satisfaction – beyond the expectations set by others on Trip Advisor. Not only was Jay’s warm welcome to two weary travelers enhanced by a chilled glass of wine and lively conversation; he, Mike, Larry and Curly offered a relaxed, well-manicured, efficient and friendly environment, supported...

The Hotel California experience is unbelievable. The setting is beautiful, the bedding top notch, the staff over the top helpful, friendly and a little cheeky. The bicycles, the fresh fruit provided daily, the BBQs, all the million extra moving parts of this hotel are simply amazing. We will be back as often as we can to Palm Springs and will...

In these days of bigger is better, this Hotel shoots that fallacy down in flames. Due to some cancellations we were able to secure a one night anniversary stay but we were treated like royalty. I have no idea how Curly knew it was an anniversary but yes, Pink Champagne was offered along with the obligatory premium Budweiser. Rather than...

Our first time to Palm Springs for my boyfriend and I and we spent one week in the King Poolside #2. There is not one negative remark I can say about this incredible hotel. Every moment was beyond our expectations...from the moment we checked in until the moment we left. Upon arrival we were offered a cold adult beverage and...

OK. So my title is a tad cheesy and predictable. This hotel has nothing to do with the Eagles, I don't think. Anyway, that aside, this has got to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in, and I've been in a few. From Curly's warm welcome, to watching hummingbirds feed at breakfast time, every minute of our...

Our first time to Palm Springs for my husband & I. We spent 4 nights in the Casita & 3 in a King poolside (#4). Amazing service by all from beginning to end. Curly was always available to answer questions, offer advice on where to eat, hike, etc... He made us laugh, and he was always busy making things perfect...
