Larry and his staff (Curly, Marvin and Kirby) make this stay at Hotel California the best. They are genuine in caring that their guests have the best experience ever. Every little need and response to guests are carefully thought out. A basket of snacks await you at check in. Rooms are clean, and pool and spa are kept immaculate. Towels,... More

We are afraid that if we write a great review that it will limit our ability to stay again. Others may book our room :(. The hotel is quaint, clean and the other guests were polite and tidy. There is a downtown street event...arts, food and entertainment every Thursday evening. The walk is about 1 mile. Good exercise. There are... More

You will go a long way to meet a nicer guy than the hotel owner, Larry. He is a genuinely nice guy, and really wants you to relax and have a good time. The hotel is closer to downtown - which is not the high rise jungle you wold normally associate with downtown. Anyhow, on arrival we were handed a... More

My husband and I just came back from a five day stay at Hotel California and before we left we were already booking a two week stay for next year that is how much we loved it. We have stayed in many hotels but this is the first one where we felt like we were at home and the staff... More

We have been coming to Hotel California at least once a year since Larry and Patty have taken over as owners of this hotel. We really do feel like extended family when we visit, and I would not want to stay anywhere else! The grounds, the pool, the rooms are all an oasis of pleasure in Palm Springs. The staff... More

Larry, the owner, and his staff make you feel like family. They are very eager to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are homey and comfortable and the grounds are lush and relaxing. The available kitchen area was popular with many and included fresh fruit, great red licorice and a daily paper. The pool water is as warm as the... More

I recently spent a long weekend with my sweetheart at Hotel California, to rest and relax after working too hard. We could not have been at a better hotel. The grounds, the room, the service, the owner and employees were the best. The pool apparently dropped straight from heaven. I will be back Larry! Hold room #8 for us! 😎

The grounds are lush and designed to make many conversation areas. Watch out for the numerous humming birds, smile. Lucy, the darling young woman who checks you in and takes care of you will make you feel right at home(or else she will have some esplaning to do). There are beach cruiser bikes for you to ride, barbecues for you... More

We received a warm welcome from hosts Larry and Patty upon arrival. The room and bed were extremely comfortable. The surroundings relaxing and beautifully kept. My husband and I enjoyed the Jacuzzi under the stars. The addition of kitchen facilities if needed and even English tea were much appreciated. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Highly recommend this lovely hotel. The staff is more than welcoming and accommodating (drinks upon check in with tour so you know where everything is). The grounds are relaxing and zen inducing. You will not be disappointed! We stayed in the King Suite which was huge. It's like staying in a large one-bedroom apartment complete with kitchenette. We were in... More
