I could easily stay here for a week or more! This resort is a modest, little hide away in Desert Hot Springs, with Spa Services (which we don't typically use). You'll have everything needed for a comfortable stay, with a clean room, great bed, quiet atmosphere (no music blaring away!!), older but functional kitchen area with stove, refrigerator, table &...

After spending two nights in at the Lido Palms, you just may never want to go home. This quaint eleven room motel has all the perks and whistles of a larger accommodation but without all the noise and fuss. Each room which is tastefully decorated has either a king or two queen beds, fluffy spa robes and large comfy pool... More

I've read some of the other reviews and frankly can't do a better job than they did so…instead of describing the resort I will tell you why I went and what I got as a result. I only had two days to spend there and I needed a week's worth of relaxation. I arrived on a Tuesday and left on... More

You get off I-10 and drive for a few more minutes longer than you expect. Then after a right and left turn you will find this "diamond in the rough "! I just got home from spending Sunday-Friday here and the difference from the parking lot into the lobby is amazing. When you get here, you think you will be... More

We decided at the last minute to go to the Indian Wells tennis tournament, and this hotel was the highest-rated place in the area with a room available. We had never been to DHS, and had stayed at the LaQuinta Resort in the past. Bottom line: this small hotel is simply wonderful. Our room is spotlessly clean and we love... More

I visited (and reviewed) Lido Palms in 2007 and had been trying to get back ever since. When I finally got there, it was every bit as wonderful as I remembered! Ownership has changed in the meantime, but Greg and Rod have kept all of the old amenities (including the roadrunners!) while upgrading the rooms. This is a casual sort... More

We love going down to the desert, Lido Palms, our home away from home. This was for our family, a short weekend trip between the holidays. We all work retail, and needed a dip in the natural mineral water to rejuvenate our tired body's. Perfect weather combined with the relaxed atmosphere of Lido Palms pool's was a hit with the...

Have stayed at the Lido Palms twice for retreats with my men's group. The rooms are comfortable with an eat-in kitchenette. I've only stayed in the rooms with a king bed and have found the stylish sofa to be a bit uncomfortable for extended seating. The beds have Tempurpedic mattresses and are extremely comfortable. The natural mineral spas are wonderful.... More

I'm very torn writing this review. I really don't want you readers to come stay there. But I guess I will have to tell you about it. This is not a fancy resort. It is a 50's style motel that has been refurbished and upgraded and is well-kept. They have 10 rooms all around a large pool and outdoor spa.... More

I recently returned from the Rejuvenate With Jan' retreat. I'm a locale, and have been to almost every boutique size resort in Desert Hot Springs for my job. This is by far the best. Clean and comfortable. The ample rooms are cozy and fully equipped. I was thrilled that the beds were temperpedic. Between that and the pools and Jan's... More
