Just arrived today, but couldn't wait to share the wonderfully warm reception we received today from everyone. Lovely room is spacious and smartly styled, with a terrific bath and amenities. If you want peace and quiet, and a super-accommodating staff, don't hesitate. What a marvelous find, and am look -ing forward to returning soon.

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Palm Springs. While this is primarily a gay resort, anyone would feel welcomed here because of such a friendly and attentive staff. The entire resort is excellently maintained. The rooms are nicely decorated and the pool area is so relaxing. I like, too, that this is NOT a clothing-optional resort like... More

Great stay at East Canyon. The hotel is relaxing and Richard and team have just the right amount of engagement with their guests (helpful when needed but not intrusive). The pool area and grounds are well maintained and have a garden feel (reflected in many of the pictures). The bedroom and bathroom were good sized and clean; the bed comfy;... More

We recently spent 4 nights at East Canyon. The hotel is very nice, quiet, very clean, nice rooms, great bathrooms with walk-in showers, and comfortable beds. Our host, Richard, and his entire staff were professional, friendly, helpful, and a real delight. The hotel is centrally located to restaurants, clubs, etc.

While a review is supposed to highlight both the good and bad, I'm finding it hard to say anything bad about this hotel. My partner and myself stayed here in March and had a wonderful, relaxing four days. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the folk staying there at the same time were pretty friendly, and I honestly loved... More

My husband and I recently returned to this wonderful boutique hotel for a week stay on very short notice. Richard (owner) gave us a great deal on our room and worked hard to accommodate us so we could stay in one room. We had to move once after the first night but he upgraded us to the deluxe suite at...

Just came back from a 4 day stay at EC. We could not have been happier with our selection. We stayed in the Grand Suite and it was perfect. Quiet and clean and all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay. We were looking for a romantic retreat with lots of privacy. Richard and the staff were just lovely.... More

This was our second time at East Canyon, and we will definitely return again. The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff is extraordinarily welcoming, the setting is ideal...a great place to escape. Very nice clientele, and a great place to simply sit by the pool and read a book. Looking forward to our return.

Enjoyed our stay. The property is relaxing and quiet. Richard and the staff are friendly, attentive, but not overbearing. Our room was nice and roomy and clean. It seemed to have a quiet, 30-50's clientele that was perfect for our weekend away.

We spent the last three nights of our trip to Palm Springs at the East Canyon Hotel. This is a "gay" hotel, according to the website, and seemed to cater mostly to males both coupled and in traveling groups. The room we had was perfectly kept and nicely updated. The towels, bathrobes and toiletries were of a very high quality,... More
