Came for a day pass to take the waters. $15 per person for the whole day was a bargain. Pleasant check in. Indoor and outdoor pools. Clean, though women's changing room hand no door handle. Place was empty on a December Friday, which made for a great, quiet experience.

If you are coming for the promise of a Mineral Spa experience, forget it. Any benefit of the natural hot springs is wiped out by heavy doses of CHLORINE. It makes sense because of all the screaming children running around. The pools were well heated and clean, but no different than an average Motel 6. The room itself was recently... More

I attended a CE class in Palm Springs and chose this hotel because it's close and cheap. Turns out I made the right choice. Very nice and clean, 24-hr hot springs pool, one pool is covered for added privacy; got to relax at night by ourselves; poolside room enabled us to check when pools are empty so we got to... More

Having lived in Palm Springs many years ago, I decided it was time to go back for a visit. I chose Desert Hot Springs because I never went there in the 80's, and I love hot soaks. While the hotel looks dated from the facade, the interior, and rooms have been redone, in a modern retro. Very nice. I sprung... More

Great value for your dollars here. Fairly uninviting on approach but a well cared for oasis is revealed inside. Nice bar restaurant is part of the stay with cocktails and craft beer on tap. In my opinion a private suite is the best way to go which includes a very private hot tub/pool with a view of the desert. We... More

This is an older property that has been recently nicely renovated. We booked a suite with a private pool. The suite was modernly decorated, spacious and clean.

this place is so dated! It needs a complete makeover! How can you not have an ice machine in the desert? Well they do! You have to go to the front desk and ask for it! I don't think that people should be inconvenienced in 100F heat because the hotel is too cheap to invest in an ice machine.
