We just spent a few days at Orbit In, for the third year in a row. It is very comfortable and secluded. The owners/managers are wonderful and accommodating. The atmosphere is friendly without being intrusive. Be sure to take your swimsuit as the hot tub is great.

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at Orbit In. It was absolutely perfect. Clean, charming, friendly, walkable to everything in town. Best customer service of any hotel I've stayed in. The managers were incredibly helpful and accommodating without being intrusive. We were looking for privacy, which we got, but the managers also offer a happy hour... More

I was in the bathroom and a little cold after showering. Then I noticed a gleaning metal grate on the wall that encased some wire coils. A real 1950s Thermador bathroom heater, the type that burned countless people, or worse. This heater couldn't work, too old I thought..but it did (and very well at that). And that's what the owners... More

ORBIT IN=BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE IN THE COACHELLA VALLEY!! MAYBE ANYWHERE!! I was visiting Palm Springs over Christmas with my family. I’m a true Mid-Century enthusiast, especially architecture and original designer furnishings. I had read about the Orbit In and wanted to quietly sneak a peek as I was not going to be a paying guest as I (incorrectly) assumed the... More

Not inexpensive but a great value. I really appreciated all the extras that are included for no additional charge. The staff make guests feel very welcome and special. The service is wonderful and not at all pretentious. Can't wait to stay here again.

We just got back from 4 nights at the Orbit In and we've already booked our next stay! We keep going back for so many reasons. It's an ultra-stylish pad in the downtown core of Palm Springs. Many of the best restaurants in town are just a few minutes down the street, but the neighborhood is quiet and serene. The... More

The couple that runs this place keeps the mid-century spirit alive without injecting a false pretense. Loved the attention to detail and warm atmosphere. The environment is quiet, pool is clean and warm, and you have free access to tea and soda anytime of the day. We truly enjoyed our visit and plan to come back.

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
