Staying at A Place In The Sun is like taking a trip back in time to when style mattered and high quality and detail were a given. I'd guess the place was built in the 1950's and much of the structure and decor are original equipment kept up in excellent condition. The pool and spa are well maintained and available... More

The owners Norma and Ron are wonderful people. They accommodated my girlfriend & I on short notice and exceeded our expectations with their hospitality. Rooms are nice & spacious, pool was refreshing, and the fact that our bungalow had it's own kitchen was a major plus. We will definitely be going back. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this... More

I was greeted with a warm smile! I arrived early to find my room cool and waiting for me! I was given a warm welcome! The pool was very clean and so was the surroundings! Wonderful place to read a book and kick back and relax! I didn't even need a beach towel, one was provided for me upon check... More

We did another vacation at A Place in the Sun, it is as good as ever. Friendly staff and guests, clean rooms and grounds. Very relaxing. Close to downtown but far enough to be quiet. We walk to town to eat , drink etc.

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!!!!

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
