Tripadviser ranking and reviews were spot on. My girlfriend (now fiancé) and I stayed at Hotel California for our anniversary! From the moment we arrived, it was pretty clear that this hotel was the right choice for our romantic weekend. The Hotel's Staff were extremely helpful, warm and inviting. They rven greeted us with wine upon arrival and sticked our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel July 23-26, 2013. I chose this hotel after reading (and re-reading) tons of trip advisor reviews for many hotels in the Palm Springs area. When we arrived, Kelly greeted us and offered us a cool drink, checked us in, and gave us a tour of the hotel. We were delighted to find... More

It's the perfect place...quiet, friendly, inviting. The ambiance of the pool area is wonderful, we loved being able to use the refrigerator and kitchen,... More

What a fab hotel - it really is like a home from home. We stayed here as part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip and are so glad we did. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, but special mention to Lucy who goes out of her way if there is anything you need - advice, restaurant recommendations, golf... More

My wife and I were fortuante enough to spend two nights at the Hotel Califorina. We had a fantastic room and the staff were wonderful! There was a small issue during our stay that was handled beyond our expectations. We really enjoyed the pool and the location of the hotel was great. Very peaceful and relaxing. The next time we...

We stayed 4 nights at HC last week and what a cool spot! A complete contrast to the glitz of Las Vegas, HC is quaint and full of charm. When we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and completely at home. What a great set up for families, spacious rooms with lots of home comforts and despite having... More

My friend had stayed at Hotel California with her husband last year and wanted to spend our girlfriend getaway weekend there last week. This place provided one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had in all my travels. Other TA reviews have said it all: the peaceful environment, the lush grounds, the community kitchen and livingroom, immaculate and... More

OMG where do I start...online reservations, they also have a sister property there, Desert Riviera check them out, #1 & 2 on trip advisor. TA reviewers come through again with an outstanding property. Easy early check in, friendly knowledgeable staff, adults only, nice pool, jacuzzi area, garden style, very nice. It's a small 14 room hotel so very personal service,... More
