Too many nice things to say. I love the rooms, I love the "Dean Martini" hour, I love the owner, I love everything about this place.

The staff at the Movie Colony could not be more accommodating, welcoming and friendly. The location is excellent with beautiful views of Palm Springs. You can walk to all of the restaurants - no car needed! The rooms are large, and clean with comfortable mattresses. I cant wait to come back next year!!!!

The rooms are sleek, the staff is very friendly and the beds are amazing! We really enjoyed our stay at the Movie Colony in February and are planning a return trip for late spring! Ooooh... and a fun happy hour! Looking forward to our return to the MC!

The Movie Colony Hotel felt like a home away from. The room was great, the beds are amazing! and the staff is delightful. I will definitely come back to the Movie Colony Hotel, Im already thinking about a "girls weekend" at the Moive Colony Hotel next! . The only down side was that the bathrooms are on the small side...

I wanted to love Movie Colony. I really did, but it fell short BIG TIME. I've stayed there twice before when it was Balantines but not since it has been "renovated" and changed owners. Really? Renovated? We stayed in a two story "townhouse" off the pool. The size was great but it REEKED of mildew!!! The hotel was sold out... More

Great location, great people and very relaxing! We stay here 3 times a year. Good breakfast and fun happy hour to talk to other guests. Owner Donald is wonderful and has fun stories of Palm Springs. No attitude, just relaxing by the pool.

We were so happy with our stay at the Movie Colony. It's 1930s style and lovely benefits suited our visit to a tee. We especially enjoyed a place that provided a great continental breakfast. The accomodations were very comfortable and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. It's definitely our #1 choice for a place to return to the next... More

I've stayed here twice, the first time in 2005 and again in 2007. First time I stayed in the townhouse which was nice. You had your own little private cabana and a private patio upstairs. The hotel provided a free continental breakfast with danishes, muffins, madelines, croissants, fruits, coffee, tea, etc which was delicious. There were beach cruises to borrow... More

We loved the ambiance of the whole place. The room was great, with original art done by the owner, Donald. Location: superb, if you like to be able to walk rather than drive everywhere, as we do. We took sunset bike rides (complimentary bikes available), relaxed by the pool, enjoyed the healthful buffet breakfast items. The only drawback: traffic noise.... More

We thought the grounds were clean and nice as was the breakfast bar. However the room itself left little to be desired. Its an old building that has been touched up. The bathrooms are very small and this is coming from someone who is quite petite. The towels were rough and I've seen softer toilet paper in public bathrooms. There... More
