Lovely place... I just be there for 2 night but it was very pleasant to be there. The room are big and full featured, with a lot of style. You have a nice pool and a little one too... I was there in March, so it was a little cold but I tried the pool with any problem. The people... More

We loved our 4 night stay and didn't want to leave. The staff are exceptional and really make you feel welcome, almost like family. The pool and hot tub was a great way to end the day and the complimentary snacks and coffee was a great way to start! The location was great! 5min free trolley ride down town!

Charm was real, the team was real, the water was so warm, the visitors all had the same thing in mind. This place was quiet, the pool was 90 degrees, I felt like I could stay the whole season with our friends, Larry, Mike, Jay and Curly. See you soon!

They couldn't be more helpful - everything you need for this standard of hotel and no extra costs at all. Plentiful fruit, cookies & coffee and the pool is so warm even my wife went in everyday. Really good fun and a very pleasant experience

On this our 4th or 5th visit, we are still in love with the little cozy spot! Always accommodating and friendly, the staff are like old friends that you just can't wait to get back to visit! Curly is a wonderful addition as manager and knows the business well. We've always wanted to try different hotels in Palm Springs but... More

Yes, I booked this after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Not a single 'terrible'. Never seen that before. Of course, who reads the 'excellent' reviews ? We all read the 'terrible' reviews first... And by making this review 'terrible' you would all read : GO STAY THERE, THIS PLACE IS PARADISE.... No comments, everything is positive, great bed, nice shower, good... More

I'm not much of a traveler and had more than a few concerns about hotels. After many inquiries and no warm fuzzies, a friend found Hotel California and suggested I check it out. I had the pleasure of speaking with Jay and he seemed to "tune-into" my trepidation and concerns. I felt very comfortable speaking with him and was more... More

There are many locations that offer warm weather for those of us who need to get away from our below zero winters. What makes the difference for us is not so much Palm Springs, but the Hotel California. We have been twice and booked our next stay before we left Here are some quick highlights. 1. It's for grownups who... More
