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

This is the fifth time we have stayed at A Place in the Sun. Our stays have been so comfortable it is very hard to come home. We can depend on it to stay so clean and friendly it feels like our second home. Four weeks was not enough so next year we will stay six weeks. Thank you for... 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 The rooms were a bit outdated.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.

This was our first time back in 18 years. Why we left it so long I'll never know. Very little had changed in the interim: the grounds were still meticulously maintained, the pool positively glowed at night, the sun shone under a blue, blue sky and the palm trees rustled in the breeze. The only welcome change were flat screen... More

This was not my first time at a place in the sun but it was a first visit for my poopers sarah and Sandler. Sarah the princess could be found lounging by the pool and Sandler loved running all around the property sniffing and smelling the roses while daddy enjoyed the pool . As always the Christmas brunch was delicious... More

Brother, brother-in-law and 3 high school friends spent a long weekend here for a reunion of sorts. The property is very well maintained, very clean, big screen tv and all the other amenities. A nice selection of breakfast items in the am, pool and BBQ's available for the afternoon. Staff was very helpful, would stay here again.
