I went on a private tour of this 1954 hotel and was blown away about this little known diamond. Totally renovated and opens May 19, 2015. 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 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

Only stayed one night but was impressed with the genuine hospitality and the manager Betty exemplifies this. Nothing fancy here but there is a nice pool, hot-tub and continental breakfast. Good value for these Canadian tourists.

Well, after spending 3 nights in this hotel my opinion is a bit mixed, although definitely positive. Firtst of all, let me emphasize that the... More
