Stunning hotel with incredible attention to detail. Pool was warm, Elaine, Bill and the rest of the hotel staff even warmer! We've stayed at a lot of hotels around the world, and this is our favourite. If you like something stylish and a bit different, this is the place to stay! Looking forward to returning soon.

A delightful hotel with only nine rooms; clean, well furnished room with nice firm bed; evening cocktail hour (wine and wine-based cocktail only) and breakfast included; easy walk to the centre of Palm Springs; fun and friendly staff; quiet sleep at night. My only regret is I wasn't able to stay longer than two nights !

The Orbit In is a must stay for Palm Springs. The experience was one of a kind. We stayed in the Frey Lounge and completely enjoyed the experience. I felt like I had stayed back in time. The room had many original era pieces. The outdoor shower was a highlight for the room. Bill and Elaine were great they took... More

If you are looking for an "authentic" MCM experience then you can't go past the Orbit In! The location is perfect, walking distance to downtown restaurants and shopping, walking distance to Old Las Palmas and heaps of MCM homes in the area. Yet Orbit is towards the end of the street so no downtown noise which is a plus. Bill... More

Great location near downtown PS. Met the owners too! Fun happy hour and good breakfast in the morning. Like The Hideaway better (partner property) as it had grass around the pool. Stayed in 119, too small, ask for a bigger room. Would stay here again!

Wow... where to begin. This is one of the most remarkable places I have ever stayed. From the moment my husband and I arrived we knew this place was something special and it certainly was. It was like stepping back in time in a modern retro way. Bill and Elaine were amazing. We could not have felt more welcomed and... More

I enjoyed my sixth visit to the Orbit In last week, as always. For the many reasons I love it, browse my previous reviews - it's like no other place in the universe. In short, great location, cool environment, friendly and interesting guests, expert management, spotless maintenance. I'll use this review to thank Bill, Elaine, Kevin, Ginny and Anthony for...

Great experience staying at this mid century hotel! Bill & Elaine are such great hosts. They made sure all the rooms were perfect upon check in. Each room had a different theme. Rooms were very clean. The saline pool was sparkling clean and heated! Jacuzzi area was cozy with a fire pit you warm up to at night. Great selection... More

even before we got there, the experience of booking etc. was so gracious and flexible. Elaine and Bill are excellent hosts and there is nothing wanting in terms of one's every need. They are gracious beyond belief, the prices are so reasonable and the charm is easy and fun. AND the saline pool is super cozy warm (+ clean as... More

What a lovely weekend....2 nights in Palm Springs. I arrived late Friday and the host had left me instructions and keys at our room, nice personal attention. I was waiting for my husband so just relaxed in the lovely bedroom with its midcentury decoration and heard some Frank Sinatra from the turn table record player. Then went to town (... More
