Add my voice to the chorus of other reviewers who loved this hotel! In all my extensive travels, I have never felt as welcomed and comfortable as I did at the Hotel California. Staying here is more like being a guest at the home of a friend; a well-off, sincerely kind friend who wants you to be as happy as... More

The Hotel California is an absolute treasure. Larry, Lucy, Jay, Mike and staff are wonderful caring folks who made me feel right at home. The pool and spa in lush garden surroundings was terrific for someone coming from freezing Boston. Larry introduces the guests to each other -- a great way to get to meet others from all parts of...

We have stayed at several Hotels not just in Pal Springs. I have had maybe 3 or fewer occasions where I felt like I was at Home and was able to enjoy the entire trip....This was one of them. Lucy was amazing hostess and provided us with all we needed. Larry was fun to meet and all we can say... More

My first of many visits to Hotel California. I now see why it is always so highly rated! From the moment you walk in, you feel like you're at home. Jay and Larry (Owner) was so very accommodating. I love the 24hour pool, Hot tub, and shared common kitchen and BBQ area. I also really appreciated the complementary beach cruisers!... More

This is the best hotel experience I have ever had. You are treated like an especially esteemed member of the family. They cannot do enough for you. It is a private oasis in the middle of Palm Springs. We will be back. Book early, it is popular.

What is there to say that has not already been covered?! This place is an absolute gem!! I loved every minute. They allowed early check-in and gave us pink champagne in a cute ice bucket with two glasses since it was my birthday. Oh, let's not forget that upon check in, Jay offered us a cold adult beverage even at... More

Larry, Lucy, Mike, Jay,- what can we say- you arrive as guests but leave as family. We could go on and on about this and that- but these guys have it right. They truly care and enjoy what they do and it shows in so many ways. Read the other reviews if you want to but we suggest you get... More
