Stayed here two nights during Coachella weekend - a very busy, usually booked out, time in PS. This place still had rooms; that should perhaps have been warning enough! I booked via a major online reservation system that implied that only a couple of rooms were left, and these were thus the most expensive suites. In reality the place was... More

we checked into this place after another hotel had lost our reservation. We had driven all the way out to Palm Springs and had no where to stay. Thank god for Mo at La Joya. He was so sweet and got us a great, inexpensive room right off one of the pools. We enjoyed our time at the pool as... More

We had somewhat last-minute travel plans and had to find somewhere to stay in Palm Springs for just one night. The previous six nights, we stayed at another gay-owned property in Palm Springs and had an amazing experience. The lowest cost option for our one night was the Motel 6 in Palm Springs, which was advertised at USD$85 per night,... More

I spent 3 nights here and enjoyed my stay. It was obvious management has spent a lot of money and time improving the property. Very friendly staff, nice comfortable new beds, and the pools/hot tub are well maintained. Very large room. My travel companion and I had our own separate bedrooms. I'll stay here again!

I have never written a review before, but this place was bad enough for me to write one. First, the rooms smelled like we were sleeping in a bathhouse, but without any of the perks; nor we're we seeking that kind of activity. The floors in the rooms were filthy as the bottoms of my feet were constantly black from... More

While the property was in desperate need of renovating, the fun has disappeared. Even having a legitimate friend over is forbidden. Really? The owner patrols the property at night kicking out people who aren't guests or who check out earlier in the day and haven't left the property. There are better places to stay in Warm Sands.

There's still work to be done, but I loved the size of the resort, variety of rooms to choose from, even the number of pools to choose from! Staff was friendly and eager to make sure my stay was pleasant. I can only imagine what this place must be like when it's full, and with better weather!
