Air conditioning was noisy and wpke up people next door. Front desk was only open 2 hours a day and no onsite security. Absolutely no veiw and no privacy. This was booked based... More

Although the complex dates back to the 40's (originally a hotel,converted to individual units) the outside areas are well maintained and (depending on the individual unit owner) most units are clean,comfortable,well stocked and upgraded.In addition to a large,heated pool and two hot tubs,the location is perfect,right on Palm Canyon Drive and convenient to grocery stores,shopping,restaurants,post office and the the other...

Let me start by saying that this review is from a particular rental unit. My issues were entirely with the bungalow itself and not the grounds. The grounds are well kept and the pool in nice and large. Nothing fancy just a nice pool with a great mountain view. I rented my bungalow from 'Sun and Fun Vacation Rentals'. The... More

I have stayed at the Ocotillo Lodge numerous times. The complex has continued to be upgraded, and individual owner suites are as well. The unit I have stayed at is clean, comfortable, and well supplied. I would recommend this particular unit to anyone. New beds, updated kitchen and bath....great!

We have rented from 2 different owners for the last 7 years, going back to 2006. Although the Octillo is old, going back to the late 40's, that, to us, is what so appealing. Both of our units were clean with the last one having work done on it while we were gone. The pool was great, the location was... More

I stayed at the Ocotillio Lodge over the weekend and enjoyed the gorgous views from the huge pool area. The hotel/condo has great historical architecture value and is very reasonably priced. It's not a 5 star and you will not have all the amenities a large chain will provide, however, where the OL fall short in big price hotels it... More

These previous reviews are SO outdated. This is a CONDOMINIUM complex now, not a hotel, not a timeshare. They are individually owned units that you must rent out from an owner. Many are NOT rented out, the owners live on site! Contact individual owners to rent.

People! This is not a FULL service hotel!! It's condo's that are individually owned and operated. PLEASE DO NOT THINK that you will be greeting by door men, or bell hops, or even front desk personnel. If you are looking for that, then go to a hotel. This is mostly for seasonal renters, and extended stays. Also, it's very nice,... More

Must book your condo rental through private sites. See VRBO.com or Vacation Spaces, or by using search engines for Ocotillo Lodge Palm Springs. Forget the past complaints about front desk service. The front desk no longer exists. Ocotillo Lodge is great!
