January 2016--- The Ocotillo Lodge is a fantastic complex of mid-century modern vacation condos, designed by famed PS architects Palmer & Krisel, that are approximately 500-600 square-feet in size, with Large outdoor patios and are individually owned. In its heyday, the dazzling structure's sweeping curved dining room was dressed to the nines, resting above the immense keyhole-shaped swimming pool while... More

First off this place has some really great history behind it. I'm not going to go to deep into it, but the likes of Lucille Ball, Gene Autry, Marilyn Monroe and JFK, just to name a few, have stayed here over the years. #1 The number one attraction of the Ocotillo lodge for me, and I'm sure many of my...

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

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

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
