We've had our eye on this gem for a few years now. While on a self-guided mid-century modern bicycle tour, we stopped by the Orbit In. Oh, it looked so neat from the outside! The gate was open, and one of the staff happened to walk out. He let us come in & have a quick tour of the place,... More

We've stayed at the Orbit In many times and every time it's perfect! The rooms are immaculate and comfortable. The hospitality and service from everyone on the staff is outstanding. The pool is sparkling and perfectly maintained. The hotel is quiet and great for reading, or just relaxing. The provided continental breakfast, soft drinks, sunscreens, and Orbitini happy hour all...

What can I say that hasn't already been said by other reviewers? This place is THE BEST! We really felt at home here. Bill and Elaine are the most charming and welcoming hosts and we had so much fun with them, especially during Happy Hour! I really loved the intimacy of the place. There are only 9 suites, so you...

We spent 3 nights at the Orbit In...and could not have been happier! The retro-50s decor was picture perfect and our hosts, Bill & Elaine, went out of their way to meet our every need--from Orbitini's by the pool to fifties LP's to play on our phonograph in the room to savvy recommendations for restaurants. We loved being so close... More

We'll add to the general consensus here that the Orbit In is the best! We had 4 days of great fun there, and are already planning our next visit (though next time, we'll probably try to avoid the 109 degree heat of June!). We had a great time in the Bossanovaville room, and loved the furnishing and especially the private... More

Being both a huge fan of the Southern California Pool lifestyle and Mid-Century Architecture, Palm Springs has been a annual destination for me over the past decade. I had stayed at several other boutique mid-century hotels and I had decided to explore the Orbit In on this trip. I was not disappointed. Upon arriving, I was amazed on how clean... More

One of my favorite places to stay, the B&B is truly mid-century modern. Kevin and Jeannie have a great establishment here (two if you include the Hideaway a few doors down). The rooms are well furnished and the place is simply charming. Cocktails around the pool (they have misters!) are fun!!! I've stayed there a number of times and can't... More

My sister and I stayed in the Frey room for 2 nights and we loved every minute of it. The only room with sliding doors overlooking the pool is very spacious. Especially the outdoor shower from which you can see The Frey House in the hills is the best. Orbit In is in walking distance of the centre of Palm... More

Have just spent a week at the Orbit and we certainly made a good choice. We were visiting Palm Springs from England so we wanted a place which offers relaxation and a peaceful atmosphere yet convenient for shops and restaurants - the Orbit satisfied all our needs. Bill and Elaine made excellent hosts. We always looked forward to Happy Hour... More

There's not much more I can add to the glowing reviews except to say that staying at the Orbit In made us happy (nostalgic bliss combined with in the moment fun and comfort). I still have a grin on my face thinking about listening to the great selection of vinyl tunes in the cozy ChaCha room. Kevin and Jinny made... More
