We just returned from another wonderful stay at the Hotel California. Twice a year we take a long weekend getaway to Palm Springs and have been staying at this quaint hotel for about 3-4 years now. We love the intimate size of the property, the warm welcome and the consistency in quality and service provided by this hotel. This is... More

We're a couple in our mid forties. The other guests seemed to be aged 30 to 50 (no kids allowed :) We really liked the hotel grounds and location, the friendly and helpful staff, our room (#7), and the wonderful pool and hot tub. I think it's a very good value. The room and bath were nicely appointed and very... More

You can't put a price on the level of hospitality, quality, and uniqueness at the Hotel California. If you want to experience something special STAY HERE!! From the moment you arrive the level of genuine care and interest is overwhelming. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Larry, Betty, Jay and Mike.

Hands down my favorite experience in Palm Springs to date! Adults only is the best when you've done the work to make a weekend sans kids happen. Jay and Larry were great - Jay started our check in by handing me a glass of wine, Larry was so accommodating by offering us an "organic" check out time. There was a... More

Loved everything about this boutique hotel! The hosts: Lucy, Jay, Mike and Betty were delightful, and went out of their way to help wherever they could. The complimentary bikes were a bonus for getting around the flat neighbourhood, to the store and to the centre of town. Our teenage kids were made to feel very welcome, and were even upgraded...

We have traveled quite a bit and this hotel is the best we have ever stayed at! The hospitality is number one. The rooms, ambiance is just amazing. We had booked at another hotel and cancelled to return here next week. The staff is amazing and you feel right at home.

Incredibly relaxing getaway. If you want to escape work and the aggravation of anything and everything, this is the place to come. Calming pool area and fantastic community kitchen if you feel like cooking up something special. Jay and Lucy are attentive to everything and absolutely wonderful people. It's like spending time with family that you really, really like. I've... More

Faultless hospitality and facilities right from check-in to departure. Good local restaurants and also 'Ralphs' the local grocery store who give you genuine discounts when you show them your room key. Certainly going back again as most do!
