Thanks to Curly, Jay, Mike and Kirby. It says something about a hotel if you can remember the names of the staff! Imagine a hotel run by your friends, this is it, they can advise you on where to go, what to see, they can even tell you which restaurant does the best pork chop (Lulu's by the way). We... More

I chose to stay here because of its ranking on tripadvisor. I'm so glad I did! There is not much I can add to the other reviews already posted...but, to second some outstanding moments: the gracious welcome, the personable service, the amazing room with complimentary snacks, the centrally located pool with misters which actually dropped the temperature (when I was...

Where to start? I came out with a buddy on a quick working trip. Simply put, it's an amazing place. It's like a small oasis in the desert. The second you pull up and park, if you drove there like I did, you feel welcome. The minute you walk in, you feel welcome. I've never been to a hotel, and... More

This was an incredible stay, start to finish. From the complimentary wine at the beginning, to the quiet and relaxing pool area, to the bikes available and snacks in the room. There's no wonder why Hotel California is #1 on Trip Advisor in Palm Springs. It's amazing and we'll be back.

The customer service and the whole vibe of giving the customer more than they paid for makes this property standout. While other properties charge 'resort fees' with NO benefits, Hotel California charges NO resort fee, while giving extra benefits such as a fully stocked kitchen area with BBQ, bikes, 100 of DVD's, and tours of the property upon arrival with...

If you want to escape the insanity of LA, this is a great small hotel that caters to adult clientele. The pool is in the center of the property allowing all guests the opportunity to spend the days by the pool with easy access back to their rooms. In the evening it gains a wonderful ambiance as a result of... More

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
