I came here by myself having just gone through an emotional upheaval. The property is lovely, the rooms very well thought out (I have a degree in Architecture, so I am very picky), there are lots of nice perks, but the best for me was when I sat down with the management and another guest the first evening around a...

Hotel California was our base for a five day visit. It was ideal! Our room was very comfortable, the staff extremely welcoming, generous, helpful, courteous. What a fine spot.... We've been raving about it to our friends. Palm Springs/Joshua Tree was a great getaway from the Northwest gray winter, and the Hotel California was a real highlight. Thanks Larry, Curly,... More

My husband and I decided to fly to Palm Springs for a weekend. Never being to Palm Springs before we did a search on Trip Advisor and when we saw the name, we knew we had to stay here. It was a lovely place. We were a late arrival and even though the office closes at 9:00 p.m., Curly stayed... More

I am 67,,,my husband is 74. We do not sleep well. We slept for 10 hours at the hotel california. Fabulous bedding, quiet rooms, terrific service. We usually stay at a 4 seasons or a ritz carlton because of the consistently high standards. The Hotel California out preformed both of these chains and added warmth, charm and something new and...

When we found out we were going to have one night layover in Palm Springs we went on good old Trip Advisor, when we saw the name we knew we HAD to stay here! We love 50's style 'motels' and we got way more than we bargained for; as we understand it, the property started out as a single building... More

From the moment you arrive until you leave two words describe your experience - welcoming and relaxing. This is our second time here and we will be back. Jay ,mike and Larry make sure you enjoy your stay. Did I mention great location, excellent Mexican restaurant a block away, close to Indian canyon, Native Food and Palm Green?

This was our tenth stay in Palm Springs and our first stay at this hotel but it won't be our last. A small boutique style hotel with good size very clean rooms and pool area/spa, but what REALLY makes this hotel is the staff. Nothing was too much trouble from lighting the BBQ to Limousine trips downtown and WHAT a... More

This is the second trip to this wonderful little gem! We stayed in the Casita, which is like a 1 bedroom + den apartment! As always, the staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and we had a wonderful 3-night stay, which would have been longer if we hadn't needed to be elsewhere.

There are a lot of places to stay in Palm Springs but this place might be unique. It is really owner operated and they really go out of their way to make everything work for the guests. Among some of the uniques features are the serving of beer and wine etc - all the time - not just at happy... More

Having an unexpected flight cancellation due to storm conditions in Calgary we needed, literally, a last minute place to stay. Larry and Curly (yes no kidding) were outstanding in making us comfortable. This is one of those secret finds to die for! Can't say enough for the cleanliness, comfort, and welcome. In fact, we would rejig future stays in Palm... More
