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...

I apologize for the my delay in writing a review for this wonderful hotel...... My husband and I were in town in February for him to ride in the Tour de Palm Springs and for both of us to get in some relaxation. APITS is THE place for that!!

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.

We only had one night here but loved it and investigated the prices for long term stays because its the kind of place you can relax and want to stay awhile. The garden and pool area are beautiful and well-kept and the view of the mountains from there is outstanding. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and the staff was... More

I liked the history of A Place in the Sun and the idea of a mid-century hotel. The owners were very friendly. The room was ok--I had hoped for a bit more updated / modern & keeping with the era it was built. The rooms were a bit outdated. A big plus was the kitchenette. It was a great amenity... More

This exceptional cosy place with a fantastic mountain view and in walking distance from downtown Palm Springs (10 minutes) is our favorite hotel in town. Pets and humans encounter the same friendly treatment.
