This is a small lodge that has very recently been completely refurbished to a very high standard. We stayed here with our two teenage daughters who loved the Lodge. The pool area is large (even complete with pool toys!) No need to worry about grabbing a pool chair early, theres one for everyone staying! Jon the owner makes you feel... More

Completely remodeled and over the top nice. They did a fantastic job bringing this place up to date and making it so appealing. It's small with 11 rooms but... More

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

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

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...

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
