Daryl at the spa did something no one has ever been able to do! I have a pinched nerve in my right arm (super-scapula nerve entrapment) I have had very limited and VERY painful movement in that arm for 20 years. I have paid therapists, professionals and even friends to massage my arm, thinking it would help. Those helped my... More

Been going to this place since I was a little kid in the 70s. Food is good for the price. The place seems to be being run on a shoestring. Pool & bathroom facilities are not just dirty but filthy!! I waited a hour for food and finally walked out and ended up at mc donnalds instead. Some waitress are... More

This hotel has great pools, but is a bit run down (and certainly overpriced). We got a room, and the two available keys - but none of them worked. We tried a number of times but couldn't get into the room! We had to get help from the reception, and were promised they would do something about the keys. Nothing... More

My husband and I stayed two nights over President's Day weekend and paid $169 a night for a "poolside room." We were quite disappointed with what we got for this price. Inside the room: Popcorn (not ours) on the floor next to the bed. Cracked, dirty tile in the bathroom. Worn carpet. Broken lamps. Dead TV remote. Cheap, rough towels.... More

This hotel is out dated. The bed was horrible. No DVD in the room. The mineral pools were FANTASTIC- open 24 hrs to hotel guest.

We went to Desert Hot Springs based on some of the reviews we read on tripadvisor, we should have kept scrolling down and read the older reviews, which are far more accurate. The hotel/hot pools is in desperate need of a good cleaning. I enjoy the ambiance and feel of an older establishment, but this place was beyond disgusting. The... More

My husband, Tom, and I go here a lot. If it weren't for this place, there'd be nothing to do in Desert Hot Springs. So, this is our favorite watering hole in the desert. Each of their eight pools is set at a different temperature from the Lobster Pot set at a hot 105 degrees to the cold center pool... More
