This trip was with three friends and we shared a spacious one bedroom bungalow with a sofa bed in the living area. Staff were very helpful. Place was attractive with flowers centered around a swimming pool/inside courtyard. Private patio area was attached to each bungalow. I would stay there again.

Bungalow style 50's motel. This has been well updated. Rooms are large and have private patio which is wonderful. The rooms are very clean. The pool is small but very nice setting. You don't feel like you are in a huge resort hotel pool with the hordes and lots of commotion. Nice to sit by the pool and have a... More

For those who enjoy the retro motel style accommodations that have become so popular in Palm Springs, this is a good option. We booked a garden patio room which gave us a bungalow with a private place to relax outdoors if the pool chatter got tiresome. Overall it was nice and quiet with responsive management. The bathroom and kitchen were... More

If you want fanciness, this isn't it. But if you want to relax and talk to other guests like they are your long lost aunt and uncle - come here! We sat by the pool and made food on the bbq and chatted with everyone who came and went. It's quiet and peaceful and beautiful here. And the rooms were... More

Needed a place for two nights during the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament. This is a pleasant collection of cottages surrounding the central pool. Our room (I can't remember if it was 17 or 19) had a bedroom, living room and kitchenette but it felt cramped because of the half wall separating the two which made for very tight walking around...

This was our second stay here. Great little vintage 1950s motel. VERY quiet property, located on a side street in a residential neighborhood. Drive to downtown Palm Springs in 5 minutes. Pool is beautiful; grounds very well -kept.

We were at A Place in the Sun for 4 nights to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful place! They allow dogs, which was great, Ginger loved it too. We had room # 2 which was a large studio with it's own bath, full kitchen and patio. On the weekend they serve an expanded continental breakfast under... More

Our third visit in nearly twenty years, and we felt like being at home. Our roomy bungalow and the well equipped kitchen made it possible to prepare our own breakfast. The office provides a large selection of books and videos, plus the two TVs made sure our evenings were full of entertainment. Loved the fully enclosed private patio.
