We had some rain and it was fine......in general needs to be remodel,key locks in the rooms instead of card, furniture and carpet a little old and wear out, but if they do some improvements is definitely worth the price.

I've been coming here since I was 1 year old. It is like a second home. Every person I recommend this place to becomes regular visitors. The pools are natural mineral springs so when you soak in them you really feel as though your body has been healed and relaxed by minerals. You also won't find a place with so... More

The title says it all, Desert Hot Springs is a "Convenient Desert Relaxation Hideaway"! As a Torrance resident the resort is close enough for a enjoyable car trip yet far enough away to leave the L.A. "hang ups" in the rear view mirror (hence hideaway).

Living in Sacramento with family in Az, DHSSH is a convenient place to stop. Although there are lot s of kids sometimes, we can always find a pool that works for us. Over the last 10 yrs we have always found that the staff is very friendly and helpful. We are in our mid 60's and have been to many... More

Wonderful place. Old school charm but could easily improve with a few simple things I observed: 1) eyesores: there's a filthy trash can between the bar and pool area. 2) hire a bartender who is attentive and polite. The young lady tonight is anything but. 3) tell the loud folks they are welcome to have fun but keep the yelling... More

In deciding where to stay in Desert Hot Springs, I chose DHSSH because of its 24-hour access to the pools, in case I wanted to do some late night soaking. Due to the extended hours, I knew there was a chance the place could get rowdy on Saturday nights, so I chose not to stay there during the weekend. Even... More

I live in Vegas and travel to California several times per year. When I am in the Palm Springs area, I always stay here. The rooms are in need of updating; no bones about it--but the location, price and spa are what make me return. I did stay at the Hilton once--yes the rooms are much nicer but they do... More
