Stay here, you won't regret it. The place is so relaxing, it has a nice ambiance. Candles and tiki torches are lit each evening. The community kitchen is great, free coffee, fruit and licorice all day! We took out the cruiser bikes a few times, there are some nice routes near the hotel. The place is clean, the beds are...

My wife and I recently stayed here for a 5 day get away. We have traveled worldwide over the years and stayed in many hotels, B&B's etc. and both agree that it is absolutely the best place we have ever been at. You are treated like royalty with so many of the little extras that make up a great stay.... More

One of the best places we have ever stayed! It made our 37th Anniversary that much better. I echo all the praises of the hotel and the amenities, but as also said before, the staff, and I mean everybody, was amazing! Thanks all and we will see you next year!

Immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Curly the manager is solid gold! His personality is fabulous. Great place with a lot of charm. The amenities available make it a wonderful place to have a long stay. We were sad we only had the one night.

After reading all of the excellent reviews for the Hotel California, we knew this was going to be the perfect place for us in Palm Springs. Everything that we had read to expect was realized on our visit...and even more!! This hotel offered us everything we could possible need to make our stay exceptional.

I can't think of any hotel in which I have stayed worldwide in the past five years that has blown me away with the level of personal service offered by this little establishment, situated just a mile from the centre of Palm Springs. So impressed that I believe so-called professional hoteliers should be forced to visit Hotel California to learn,... More

Just as promised, a lovely spot to relax in Palm Springs. Our attractive suite was huge and well-appointed. The owner and staff are delightful, doing everything to make your stay pleasant. Fine location away from the hubbub but close to good restaurants. The pool, lit with candles each evening, is a perfect gathering spot. Don't miss the Aerial Tramway! Our... More

We stayed 5 nights here in glorious weather in early February 2015 and we loved every minute of it. We were greeted by Jay and offered complimentary drinks to welcome us before being shown around. The particular arrangements (ie the well stocked kitchen) for the small amount of self catering we indulged in (morning teas, fruit and simple breakfasts only)... More

We stayed at HC for five nights and didn't want to leave! I will never go back to conventional hotels. The fine folks at HC are truly the best hosts. They go out of their way to make your stay special. It's a fantastic oasis and respite in the desert, from the palms and banana trees to the wine and... More

I've been reading about Hotel California for quite a while now. I started planning my recent trip more than six months in advance. The hotel lived up to every great comment written about them. From greeting Curly and the beginning or our stay, to saying goodbye at the end, they were beyond expectations. Everyone there, staff, and guests included, was... More
