Had a very enjoyable stay. The continental breakfast is more than loaded. The thoughtful amenities are a welcome extra. The location is perfect, just outside of everything but so close that it is easy to get there by walking. The owners took extra steps that helped make the vacation in Palm Springs go well when it could have turned into... More

"This is a delightful place, with charm to spare. The entire location has architectural integrity and beauty, down to the last thoughtful detail. Art and objects are perfectly placed, colors carefully coordinated, for those of us that are sensitive visually. Upon inquiry, the reason becomes obvious. One of the owners (Brian) was trained as an architect. It is quiet, peaceful,... More

Attractive, comfortable, and private--everything about this small desert hideaway is close to perfection. The pool in the landscaped gardens and many outdoor living spaces are special delights, and so are practicalities like the nicely stocked guest kitchen. Vic and Brian are friendly and thoughtful hosts. For me the search for a place to stay in Palm Springs begins and ends... More

Our second time staying at Casa Ocotillo and everything was as perfect as our first time four years ago! The rooms were spotless, the breakfast just right and the owners went out of their way to make our stay 5 stars. Hope we'll be returning sooner next time. Thanks, Brian and Vic.

I love staying at Casa Ocotillo, because it's like home away from home. I wake up in the morning, get a fresh cup of coffee and read the daily news paper outside our special room they have at Casa Ocotillo. Brian and Vic are very friendly and always have everything you need, great service. By the pool you can enjoy... More

We've been coming to the desert for years and have stayed at several of the gay owned and operated boutique hotels, but for us the spinners stops at Casa Ocotillo. The owners are sweet and accommodating and give you the perfect blend of friendliness and privacy. The grounds are beautiful and it really feels like their home is your home.... More

We traveled to Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and Modernism Week. Casa Ocotillo provided a lovely and quaint backdrop for our weekend getaway. We enjoyed our room, the nicely landscaped grounds and conversing with the other guests around the pool area. The inn is very close to the downtown area and many shops and restaurants (though...

We recently had an amazing stay at Casa Ocotillo in Palm Springs. We've been regular visitors to the desert for many years and have stayed at a variety of hotels and inns, but none have been as nice or as comfortable as Casa Ocotillo. A small, boutique inn of five rooms, on lushly landscaped grounds with beautifully appointed rooms, Casa... More

Through the years I've frequented Casa Ocotillo and have always been impressed by the property, staff and impeccable service. They've managed to exceed all my expectations with their exceptional hospitality. The rooms are beautiful, grounds immaculate and service is always with a smile. It has a rather large pool and a very private and special Jacuzzi. I'm sure that anyone... More

We recently made a return visit to Casa Ocotillo and were delighted to find the inn was as comfortable and as beautifully maintained as on our previous visits. Brian and Vic are amazing hosts and do an incredible job making the guests feel welcomed and appreciated. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and further enhances the laid back feel of Casa...
