I was desperately in need of some rest and relaxation and from the moment I walked through doorway into Colt's Lodge, I knew I'd found my own private paradise. Hidden behind its walls are lush tropical grounds that are filled with sweet and fragrant plumeria flowers, palms, a bubbling stream and amazing sculptures. The rooms are superbly appointed and even... More

Colt's Lodge is located in the old historical area of Deepwell Estates in Palm Springs, CA. This unique boutique Lodge has 11 beautiful rooms that were individually designed by the owner, Jon Nelson - they are elegant and comfortable. The air conditioning system is a new technology and it is the best I have experienced in any boutique hotel. The... More

Location fabulous with a view of the San Jacinto Mountains, beautiful landscaped grounds, historic pool and central living room/kitchen for guests. Each room is decorated by an internationally known designer with 11 individual themes.... More

I don't know were to start. We were very nervous after we picked that place. Yes the picture on the website look great but don't they always look great? But there weren't a lot of information about the city. So we went for our christmas ski vacation all the way from California to Hinterglemm. It was amazing. The stuff was... More

We chose this place based on other TripAdvisor reviews and they were exactly right. It is easy to find, easy to park and well placed. The welcome we got was delightful, very warm and caring. The room we were given was one with a kitchenette which would have been perfect. A small issue with plumbing due to the impending works... More

My wife and I booked our room here for the 2nd weekend of Coachella. This place turned out more than what we expected. Our room had a kitchen, which was great because we didn't have to go out every meal before we went to the festival. The pool was literally 15 steps from our front door. The General Manager Betty...

It has a comfortable and quiet environment with lovely grounds and a heated pool and jacuzzi! It is in a perfect location for... More

We had another wonderful month at Alpine Gardens Hotel. It was nice to return to our favorite spot and have fun with friends we see there every year from around the country. So enjoyed new manager Betty who continues, in her own way, the personal caring and family feeling that we have always had with Bill and Tom. We have... More

We stayed here for 10 days recently and loved it. It is a lovely property with pool and hot-tub and the rooms are a good size. We had one with a kitchen which was perfrct.

We could not have been happier with our stay. Simple, comfortable and clean describe the two rooms we enjoyed for the weekend. The property is well taken care of and charming. Breakfast was offered with a very personal flair almost like you were visiting a relatives home. It was a perfect way to start the day. They will be remodeling... More
