Wonderful little boutique hotel. Very romantic and peaceful. The only one thing missing is a bartender poolside. The tiki bar looked so sad and empty all the time. All of the staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful as well as informed as to the best places to go out and about. K.C. was my welcoming committee and made me feel... More

Stopped in Palm Springs for two nights on our way to our final destination in San Diego. Our stay was so pleasant, next time this will be our final destination. Service was unsurpassed and the junior suite will again be our choice in the future.

This is a small and friendly family-run inn which we chose on the basis of other trip advisor reviews; we would have to agree that it was a pleasure to stay here. We arrived in the first week of September and therefore slightly off peak, so there was plenty of room availability. The inn does not offer any meals, however,... More

Small, cozy, far from luxurious, and yet the best hotel I've stayed in in Palm Springs. Staff knows you by name. Attention to detail is impeccable (free Diet Cokes in the mini-fridge, a basket of sunscreen by the pool, not a spec of dust anywhere). Sound travels quickly and through the walls here, so it's best to keep one's voice... More

This little treasure in Palm Springs is an oasis of quaint delight! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with kindness, with the owners looking after every need. Love the sweet pool and courtyard area, the rooms are perfect, and there's even a little kitchen stocked with everything you might need to make a simple dinner, should you decide... More

During our 4-weeks vacation in the US this hotel was the best - no doubts, and we had been in all categories of hotels from 2-star to 4-5 star. Very personal, very unique, relaxing, comfortable. The rooms and the whole hotel are very clean (just smell the towels, great), the atmosphere is very relaxing, the management incl. 'the boss' Larry... More

Great spontaneous trip! Was able to book a room that morning with Jay(funny guy).Upon our arrival was greeted by a very friendly Lucy who showed us around this small but awesome hotel. We stayed in the Townhouse that had a full kitchen, the bedroom was upstairs with a very comfortable bed. The small pool was nice & quite (no kids).... More

Like many others, I loved this little hotel. The personal treatment is especially helpful to a solo traveler. I loved the up to date room decor, very comfortable bed, pool with greenery and shade if desired and the misters which make it bearable to stay out near the pool in summer heat. Best of all, the people who run the... More
