This place is really charming and quaint. Mark and Adrian (front desk) are WONDERFUL people and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Here you will find a trace of days gone by of old Hollywood. The pool is large and gets sun ALL DAY! I love that they have kept things as they were when the property... More

Just spent a week at A Place in the Sun- found this gem when our other hotel closed and couldn't be happier. Mark and Adrian were great hosts. We brought in a taco wagon for a family meal poolside one evening and everyone had a great time. Beautiful well kept grounds and close to downtown.

A Place in the Sun is a great place to relax for a weekend. The pool was more than large enough to accommodate all of the guests on a busy Saturday. There is a grill available for use of the guests. The rooms all have kitchens or kitchenettes, which was a nice touch as my husband and I prefer not... More

We just celebrated our 60th family reunion here at A PLACE IN THE SUN. It was great. Our group booked the entire place. The pool, the grounds and the gazebo were nicely maintained. The rooms and amenities were great. Mark and Acrian looked after all of our needs. The housekeepers worked hard to keep all of our rooms cleaned and... More

Came out to relax and see relatives. We have been many times. If you want the big hotel feel, then move on to some where that has it. This is a mid-century , family like setting with a great pool. Kids come here too so if that is a problem...We got the large bungalow this time. Excellent. Staff great as... More

The location and amenities were wonderful. Very peaceful and quiet, yet 5 minutes from Downtown. The units are a bit older and may need a bit more of upkeep, however they utilize the space to its maximum potential. Rooms are comfortable and the patios are p-r-i-v-a-t-e-, which was very important to us. They allow dogs, which is the main reason... More

We have stayed and returned to APITS every year for 5 years now. it is a little gem in the dessert. This hotel is comfortable, with great beds and very clean rooms plus all the comforts of home. The outdoor space is beautiful with flowers, lounge chairs, tables, pool and hot tub. The staff is great, accommodating, and friendly. We... More

From the time I spoke to Mark I felt sure this would be a great stay. We arrived and just as we expected what a lovely experience. The room was large and so welcoming. The pool area was resort style and so relaxing. Our highlight of course was we were able to bring our little pup, even to the pool... More

Our annual Palms Springs birthday celebration weekend was another success! Fun had by all. This year we had to deal with the elements; hottest day on record - 119 degrees... and Two big fires with smoke and ash... It was all made better because of our friends and the Otter Pops that A Place in the Sun delivered poolside... More... More

We have stayed at APITS several times with and without small children. This place is fantastically relaxing. The pool and deck are comfortable and relaxing. the rooms are cozy and clean and have kitchenettes so one shop and you don't need to leave. Of course if you want to it's Palm Springs but for me pool side with books and... More
