4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Initially worried about noise as my assigned room was on Indian Canyon side of hotel....but it was really quiet. Very mid-century modern...cool lines. Nice pool. Continental breakfast by the firepit....fun. Comfortable bed, nice towels etc. City bikes for use of guests...really great to see the interesting architecture in the immediate neighbourhood. Wifi was complimentary and worked perfectly. Ample free parking... More

Rooms were pretty minimal (as modernist design is) and clean. Bathrooms could probably use a makeover but again, all was clean. Outdoor space is where it's at in this hotel. Lovely firepit in the courtyard/bar area with a pool and hot tub. great continental breakfast in the AM at the courtyard/bar. They rent bikes out which is great in P.S..... More

My friends and I travel to the desert quite often and have never tried a boutique hotel and thought it would be fun to stay at Movie Colony. We had a wonderful time everything was walking distance. One night we ubered and our fair was only 10 dollars. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Juana helped us... More

The Movie Colony Hotel is a gem in Palm Springs. We were a late arrival and even though the propert closes at 7, Juana assisted us by providing instructions over the phone on how to get into the property and our room. Perfect for a relaxing getaway. The staff was excellent. Always available to assist without being entrusive. Over all... More

When traveling to Palm Springs we always like to stay in the smaller hotels. We were pleasantly surprised at the personalized customer service the Movie Colony Hotel had to offer. From the moment we checked-in we felt welcomed. Our room was clean and well maintain. Their outdoor firepit is lid during breakfast and happy hour. Even though we did not... More

We enjoyed our stay here booking two separate rooms. Both were very comfortable with quirky but practical decor. Unlike a previous review we did not arrive until after 7pm and while in route received a phone call from the hotel to remind us that as a Boutique hotel their offices were only open until 7pm. They then emailed us extremely... More

I stayed a couple years ago at the Caliente Tropics which is about the same price. Much nicer hotel. It was clean, but everything is worn and the carpets were pretty dirty. The renovation in the rooms is pretty cheap and just not what I expected. Great location and the bikes, fire pit and happy hour were a nice touch

We travel to Palm Springs often and always wanted to stay at the Movie Colony Hotel. We finally had the pleasant opportunity to stay for a few night.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December. It was booked through their website. This is an older property, from the 1930’s I believe, and we fully knew this when we booked. As such we were not expecting this property to be perfect, and in fact normally find the little quirks in these buildings charming. However, the room... More
