We have been coming to A Place In The Sun for over 10 years now. Year over year it gets better and better. The garden property is lovely and friendly + pet friendly. The grounds are well kept. The saline pool and Jacuzzi are stunning and the misters make every month in the desert beautiful. The lobby unit is adorable... More

We have just returned from our third stay at "The place in the sun" and again it lived up to all our expectations. It really is like being at home but warmer and with a pool and Jacuzzi. The bungalows are fully equipped to enable you to cook complete meals if you wish. The owners Ron and Norma make you... More

Norma took care of my reservation, and she was extremely pleasant. I arrived at the hotel past 8:30pm, so the office was already closed. Norma had left an envelope with the instructions to get my keys, which were simple to follow. The room was perfect (I chose the studio for only one night). It had the kitchenette, which made breakfast... More

Been going to A Place in the Sun for 12 plus years and have never been disappointed! It's quiet and comfortable and so nice that dogs are welcome, too! One of the best-kept secrets in Palm Springs!!!!

This hotel is older but well maintained and has great ambiance. The rooms are very nice and are very clean. Most of the rooms have fully functional kitchens, the studios have kitchenettes which have just about everything you need and it feels like home. The grounds are very well maintained and it feels like your in someones backyard. The hotel... More

We are repeat visitors, but every time the staff makes APITS feel more like family and home. The fact that Hank and Susette (our two toy poodles) are every bit as welcome is so special; you'll be hard pressed to find a more pet-friendly environment. Ron and Norma are every bit the dog lover as proven by their own rescues.... More

I've almost run out of terrific things to say about this lovely hotel, but here goes!! We were here for a little summer getaway and we weren't disappointed. The weather was beautiful as were the hotel grounds, the staff is very kind and accommodating to your schedule and it was very nice to meet Norman who works the front desk.... More

Norman started the stay at checkin, keep the man, he is good at what he does (what is seen by your visitors.) Your facility is the complete package but requiring more attention to detail. For the monies you charge (even with the free day for staying two days) should see the misters working to perfection on the hottest week of... More

Thank you for your feedback, Bill. As always, we appreciate hearing the good and the bad. Our employees are worth their weight in gold, so thank you for those nice words. Sorry about the misters and a/c's. We noticed that the misters on the south side of the gazebo appeared clogged when we turned them on when it started getting... More

I really didn't want to do this review because it's one of our favorite places and we didn't want to share. The hotel is wonderful, comfortable, private, clean the owners and staff are awsome! Our dog also loves it and is very comfortable at APITS.
