We just got back from a 2 night stay at the Movie Colony Hotel...and loved it. I have to say I was a bit cautious after seeing the recent flood of lower reviews, but was pleasantly surprised really how nice this property was. The self sufficient style of the hotel isn't much of a selling point, but we didn't have any problems. The guy at the front desk was courteous and very friendly. Even after knowing we had a groupon (where some hotels will give you the worst rooms and service), he still gave us great service. Other reviews mentioned a tired and drab reception area. There were a few stains on the carpet, but overall was still pretty nice. The property is small and quaint, which is nice. Our room was near a fire pit (which I suppose would be wonderful when it's not over 100 degrees at 9pm). Our room was VERY spacious with a bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom, dressing area, separate living room, and an extra bathroom with shower. Room needed some updating, but overall a very nice room! We had mentioned it was our anniversary and there was a nice bottle of wine and a welcome letter for us. Very nice touch. The AC worked really well. Was nice having it full blast when we first got to our room to escape the heat. The free parking was never a problem. Hotel is very central to downtown. Continental breakfast was a nice touch. Others who complained on the selection may not know what a continental breakfast is. Nice selection of bagels, toast, english muffins, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and cereal, along with fresh juice, milk, tea and coffee. Also available all day long, was cold spa water with a selection of oranges, lemons and limes. Very refreshing in the heat. Overall a nice stay and would definitely stay here again. The property has a old school Palm Springs vibe with all the modern touches.
