Wanted a one night stay to see how Palm Springs has recovered from the depression. Last stayed there in 2009. Much upgrades in the rooms. Heated pool, hot jacuzzi, sauna and steam room too. Beautiful gardens and great people running it too. Afterwards we did the run up the mountain to Idylwild. Apple pie at the bakery there, then down... More

First off I rarely give 5 stars, so this is as good as it's gonna get. Located in the "Warm Sands" area The staff and guests were very nice. The staff wants to know if there are any issues.... so they can correct it. They're not clairvoyant. Everything was fine with our stay. The room was convenient to the whole... More

Great hotel for a guys weekend out. Comfortable great rooms and rates. Referred by a regular of the hotel and they gave me a discount. Laura will never find out! Very thoughtful hotel layout very little noise from nearby rooms.

It is the best hotel in Palm Springs, the staff are the greatest people, they makes me feel like I am home & I've met so many wonderful friends at the resort. Like the hotel site says, it is like my "home away from home" for me. I only stay here when I go to Palm Springs...I cannot wait to... More

I really liked this resort. The manager guy running it was hilarious and very accommodating. The rooms themselves were great - all named after gay icons - The Madonna room is the cheapest :) Everything is nice and cosy with just the right level of tack.

This is a small gay guys clothing optional resort....very low key and casual...the sauna and steam room need some upgrading...but grounds and rooms very well done...even the outdoor chandelier ...on a cool night is refreshing .Resort is convient to downtown and walking distance to the Tool Shed bar and Pete's Hideway restaurant..

From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, we were treated royally by the staff and felt very welcomed. The... More

The pool was lovely and warm for the time of year (December), the gardens were a delight and the room was comfortable. It was nice to have facilities in the room to prepare simple snacks.We used a car to get about... More

We stayed here a few times so that should count for something. I won't spend time on the negatives because I think we got our monies worth. I like the lush grounds and the small steam room. The wall safe is not a secure (real safe) so don't count on putting anything of great value in it. The manager (Dale)... More
