The Movie Colony is very much as advertised and reviewed; it was exactly the place we had in mind for that Palm Springs vibe. The only negative from our visit was the location of our room (I believe it was #14); it was right outside the breakfast area where conversations could easily be heard, and perhaps more to the point,...

Recently stayed here and was very pleased with the experience. Its a small and comfortable spot with nice clean rooms and a laid back vibe. The free breakfast is a nice touch. Location is good. The only issue I had was having my GPS stolen from my rental car while parked on the property. In defence of the motel it... More

Close to town, Bossa Nova music and throwback Palm Springs elegance. How could you go wrong?! . I've been to almost all of the small and large hotels in PS and the Movie Colony was a gem I've been waiting years to hit up! The happy hour and hands off approach of the staff was perfect for our simple Palm... More

Our stay at the Movie Colony Hotel was simply amazing! The staff was super friendly and beyond accommodating. We stayed in a terrace room, with stunning mountain views. Loved the intimacy feeling of the hotel. All the extras, like breakfast and happy hour are a nice touch. We learned that the bagels are from a local bakery, loved that they... More

We had the opportunity to stay in Palm Springs for four nights, and we are so glad we choose the Movie Colony Hotel. My husband and I were received with a glass of wine. We arrived during their Happy Hour so the front desk lady offered to serve us drinks before giving us a detailed tour of the property. Our... More

We've been visiting Palm Springs for years, and have only stayed at the Orbit In - a perfect property in our eyes. We decided to change it up and stay at Movie Colony, but for ONLY ONE REASON - the Sinatra Townhouse (room #29). We booked on 2/25/15 and I specifically asked for the Sinatra house because of the history.... More

These photos posted on their site are clearly from 10 years ago. The interior of the rooms are very aged and need desperate updating. The air conditioners are a joke, with a tiny 10,000btu unit trying to cool at 600sf room in the middle of July. It was always sweltering inside my room. It was so bad that I checked... More

We were hoping that you would enjoy your complementary upgrade from a standard room to a suite in celebration of your birthday weekend.

The Movie Colony Hotel was wonderful, especially for the price and location! I WILL be back ... :) The hotel itself is a small boutique property, with some great amenities. For starters, they have a FREE happy hour each night by the pool from 5:30-6:30 with wine and sake cocktails. They have FREE breakfast each morning with a variety of... More

The customer service at this hotel was amazing!!

We stayed with friends. We each had a townhouse. The rooms are steps away from the pool. The separate living room was perefct to gather with our friends. We had a great relaxing time by the pool. The pool temp was perfect. Our friends had never been to the desert, and after this experience, they will definitely be back. The... More
