The two story motel is built in a rectangle surrounding the 8 pools (swimming & hot tubs). This design helps block the wind and keeps the children away from Palm Drive. The entire site including the parking lot was clean. There was lots of landscaping including palms and other plants. Access to the rooms is from an exterior walkway. All... More

Just too many children in the pools, @ times. Some people drinking in the pool not on the sides, who had some fowl language in front of the children, these people were not staying there as they had on wrist bands. All this & we will be back.. staff is always friendly, nice, respectful & the restaurant is fantastic.

Hi. Just to clarify we pump 200 gallons of fresh hot mineral water a minute into all 8 pools and spas. So the pools are a virtual river of fresh mineral water, circulating from the pools into the ground and continuing. Also, the water is extremely good for your skin :) We have been very busy the past few weeks... More

My fiance and I stayed at DHS Spa from 3/29 to 4/4. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed (a microwave would have been nice and apparently we could have asked for one). I have been visiting the day spa since 1977 and find that DHS spa is a great value and clean place. It has been... More

They offer 7 pools of different size and temperatures. And you have 24 hour access. Quite unique in that. Rooms are what you should expect at the price (~$100) per night. We enjoyed the pools very much. Will consider coming back.

The hotel and spa has upgraded the rooms and service. Every time we stay, we are very pleased that we picked the Desert Hot Springs I'm also glad that they are enforcing the No Smoking rule as my wife is very allergic to smoke.

I think that the pool area is probably very nice once it is cleaned up..there are several pools/spas, and the mountain views are great. However, they have some sort of a "day at the pool " public thing going on there and it is very cheap...so you can imagine the type of people that end up at this place all... More

I'm sorry this was your experience and perception based on your one night stay. I assure you most of our guests do not feel the same way. We do have daily admission for our pools, but our regulars are mostly retired folks that like to take the waters. We have a phenomenal array of hot mineral water pools and enough... More

For those who appreciate retro, you'll love it ! A little piece of 50's Americana complete with diner & bar scene...albeit now with Karaoke. Great relaxed family desert retreat, my kids love jumping in & out of the many different temperature pools. Love Annette, the security guard...she fits right in !!!

Our family decided to stay here because of the "healing water". But the water was treated with Chlorine. The hotel uses false advertising when the say they have "the best untreated water". They add chlorine. And, we never saw the pools drained and refilled, which we typically see when staying at other hotsprings hotels. Overall, the whole place was pretty... More

Hi, Thanks for reaching out on TA. We do put the absolute minimum amount of chlorine required by the Health Department. I have heard that some hot mineral water spas drain pools daily, which may make them exempt from using chlorine. I don't think we false advertise our waters anywhere... if you can show me where, I'd love to correct... More
