We were lucky to get really good weather considering it was middle of July, but even aside from that, the place is great! Cute rooms, lots of attention to detail. Pool is nice, hot tub is hot, and open all night long. All the guests were nice and respectful as well, and even though it was almost full house, you... More

From entering the door to El Morroco inn & Spa, we are easily transported to Morocco. The ambience is simply wonderful. Every small detail is a delight. Loved every lamp in the premises. Too bad we missed the happy hour as we checked in late and we missed the breakfast as we were too lazy to leave our very cozy... More

Well, was staying elsewhere, but needed some R and R. Having stayed here before I knew it would be peaceful. Great value for pool, spa and massage day use. Will go back and back to this hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The Innkeeper at El Morocco is second to none. We were lucky enough to have the Inn reserved for an Appreciation Day/night for Employees. Bruce defines "Service with a smile" always smiling, happy, helpful, and keeps everyone having a good time. If you need something, he's there, if you want to be left alone, he's not there either. He just... More

What a great place. We got there as the sun was setting so it was hard to tell what the place looked like. This is a 21 and over inn and what a difference it makes. We came back from dinner and it was so quiet, peaceful and just relaxing. Come the morning we went down to the breakfast which... More

My sister and I came back to this Inn for a second time and our stay was as lovely and memorable as the first visit. We bring our own food from home so we can enjoy every minute at this gorgeous inn. We sit outside, light a fire and watch the sunset. It is DIVINE. Although we both love and... More

The place is small, intimate. Owners really care about the place! The pools are open 24 hours as are the library, kitchen with free snacks, and DVD library. Rooms overlook the courtyard with one pool, bar, and gas fireplaces. There's a garden with bocce, hammocks, chess, and a yoga/exercise tent. Great breakfast and happy hour cocktails included. Great stop after... More

I booked this hotel based solely on its reviews. At $200 (after taxes) I was a little afraid that I might be overpaying for this room. The hotel even lets you know that the room is small at the time of booking. Between the two of us and our luggage we were extremely comfortable and not crowded in the least.... More

Third visit to the Inn. Met Bruce's brother Doug this time around. We enjoyed hearing his many stories of years working at the Flamingo in Vegas. The reviews written say it all. Great place to relax and spend one on one time with your honey. Quiet and relaxing yet if you want interaction just make sure you are at the... More

We weren't sure what to expect from Desert Hot Springs. The town itself was a bit underwhelming, but the El Morocco exceeded expectations. For the price, it was an amazing getaway and something really different. Located in an unassuming residential area, the hotel is a hidden gem that surprises from the moment you open the door. From the nice amenities... More
