The team at the hotel made us feel very welcome from the moment we walked in the front gate... a big thank you to Jay, Mike, Kirby and Curly. The hotel was very peaceful, the room (number 1) was lovely, spacious, very comfy bed and sofas and had everything we needed. Everything was just perfect and helped make our honeymoon... More

When we planned our 16 day road trip through Nevada, Arizona and California we always knew that the last leg of the tour would find us in Palm Springs and that this would be our “chill time” before the long flight that brought us back home to N. Ireland. We therefore wanted a hotel which would provide us with that... More

I've been coming to Palm Springs for years and tolerating the drunken, smoking masses that congeal at most of the hotels/motels on any given weekend. I've always noted the Hotel California, but since it didn't come up on any of the usual hotel sites, I always forgot to look into staying there -- until now. It is reasonably priced and... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights on our roadtrip, I choose the hotel because of the fantastic reviews it had received on tripadvisor and we weren't let down. Charming hotel, the staff were very accommodating and very willing to offer help and advise. We were traveling from the UK and I loved the fact I could use the telephone... More

The staff of Hotel California thinks of every detail: personal tour upon arrival, soft drinks and snacks in the room, a huge kitchen, shared bicycles. The small property felt like home. We would definitely stay at this hotel, which is in a great location, again.

Thanks so much to the staff at Hotel California. Great place, fantastic staff! I will be back! Nothing but quality at this location. Spotless hospitality kitchen for guest's usage as well as a lounge area to escape the heat.

Everything you could ever need is here, down to scotch tape! {yes I needed some tape} We were still learning about the house just days before leaving. Excellent floor plan. Everyone had their own little domain at night. And the views are incredible. Stylishly decorated and so very comfortable. It was super nice having a big enough kitchen the 4... More

We stayed an extra day over a weekend and each day it got more enjoyable. The rooms are all very private as the pictures on the website made it seem like everything was open to the courtyard but this was not the case. The staff was all very friendly, concerned we were comfortable, and accommodating to our needs. The movie... More

We found the Hotel California on the internet through Tripadvisor, and were delighted to have chosen it for our three day stay in Palm Springs. The two proprietors (Curly and Curly, believe it or not), were extraordinarily accommodating and friendly, as were all of the other staff, and the little extras they offered just made everything that much better. Free... More
