My partner and I stayed at the Chaps Inn for a week over New Year's Eve. The two hosts, delightful Englishmen, were charming, hospitable, and very helpful. The property is well-maintained and we spent more than a few nights in the warm and relaxing jacuzzi under the desert sky. The pool, too, offers a pleasant opportunity to swim, gazing up... More

The owners are a very lovely couple and the fact that this is a place for average guy is even better. Service was good, rooms were very clean, close to other places and eateries and the guys..............Tasty!

When we arrived we were greeted by one of the owners who was very friendly and checked us in quickly. The room was a good size and well layed out. The carpet was pretty stained and in need of replacement, but that's not that unusual for gay accommodations in Palm Springs. I was surprised that no breakfast was offered on... More

I'd never been to PS, but knew of Chaps Inn and stayed a week. The owners Stuart & Ian proved very hospitable and gracious British ex-pat hosts. To say the room was 'dated' I think is a bit unfair. I choose 'classic' as a term of 50's endearment (which was PS's 'Golden Era). I was pleasantly surprised at the size... More

Owners Stuart and Ian make guests feel they are with Leather & Bear family. Family style and clothing optional and pure friendliness are what makes Chaps so popular with men into Leather and Bears. I stay often, even though I live in Palm Springs. I always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the pool and hot tub. Day visitors enliven the... More

My boys and I had a lovely stay this past weekend at Chaps. This resort is quite small, and the facilities aren't four-star, but class and charm go a LONG way. The owners couldn't have been sweeter, kinder, or more helpful. The resort attracts a mature crowd and we kept to ourselves mostly for the first couple days. The pool... More

We have stayed at Chaps Inn at various times since it opened and consistently return and send friends there. Owners Stuart and Ian are gracious and accommodating. On the last trip they even located an item we had left (before we contacted them about it) and promptly mailed it back to us. I like the availability of orange juice and... More

Agree with other reviewers.2nd visit highlighted the fact that owners are over it. Pros: Rooms are spacious and clean Only resort in PS where day visitors don't have to pay Into older overweight men , this is the place for you. Cheap. Cons: Bath could do with an update, you can pee faster than the shower pressure. Beds quite hard,... More

My partner and I took a last minute trip to Palm Springs over White Party weekend and had a really great time at Chaps. Its a more intimate space than anywhere else in PS that we've stayed and Ian and Stewart (the owners) were really awesome and accommodating. The room was nice (and big!) the price was great, the pool... More
