The rooms are big and comfortable. The staff is friendly. I enjoyed the pools and sauna. The hotel is 20 minutes of driving from Palm Springs.

Wanted to like this place whose better days are long past. Greeted by a friendly front desk staffer whose surly manager was only interested in berating her staff and counting the cash in the till. Nonetheless, we paid for day passes, rented towels and locks for the lockers. The spa is a collection of pools of varying degrees of water... More

Unfortunately all so called hot springs in the city of Desert Hot Springs are chlorinated and not free flowing natural hot springs. Once the water has been manipulated with chlorine it is no longer a natural hot spring experience. I do not think any naturalist person would spend anytime soaking in a pool full of chlorine, it defeats the whole... More

This was my second time to visit these pools for day use and I am surprised that there were no apparent improvements made since I was here two years ago. The cooler pool has tape holding tiles in place...how do you suppose they clean that pool with tape? My guess is not, only that the water gets changed. At an... More

Desert Hot Springs is the best kept secret in North America. In Europe, one would pay premium prices for the luxury of enjoying these healthy, clean, hot mineral springs. Each spa in town offers something different in ambiance but all give excellent service. Come in, relax, pamper yourself and stay awhile.

The pools are great. We usually just do the day pass. I feel very comfortable there. All age groups go to the pools and there is not that self conscious feeling i get when i am in Vegas around all the "hot" bodies. The food in the cafe is really good and alcohol drinks are reasonably priced. Hotel is run... More

I did some severe checking before coming to Desert Hot springs, as some of the hot springs can ask for a $50 day use fee and up. There are no natural or public springs. This place is only $7 and free if you schedule a spa service $30 and up. I did a manicure and was pleasantly surprised to find... More

Have gone three times to the restaurant with friends who go there regularly. Food was good and the price are right. However, the place needs fixing up. The benches have tares and the walls could stand some new paint. The pools and spa do not hold a candle to the competition around them
