This was our second visit to the Orbit In, a small hotel actually run and staffed by the owners and few long term employees. It is quiet, clean, with a beautiful view of the mountains and palms and very close to the action of downtown Palm Springs. What is best is the real consideration and kindness of the owners and...

This year will be our third visit to Palm Springs, CA. Each time we've stayed at the Orbit In or the Hideaway. OK twice at the Hideaway. We love this place. The owners Jinny and Kevin are great. Bill and the rest of the staff are wonderful. It feels like home. We try to get back to Palm Springs the... More

My husband and I visited Palm Springs for the first time recently and wanted to experience the whole mid-century fabulousness of the place. I looked extensively at the reviews on Trip Advisor and felt the Orbit In would be our best bet. We were not disappointed. What a lovely, relaxing, charming place this is! The staff was phenomenal, our room... More

We checked in a couple Friday afternoons ago on a particularly chilly Palm Springs weekend. When we entered the front office, we were immediately greeted by a warm and very welcoming staff member (I'm sorry I forgot her name). She proceeded to check us in and show us around the property and our room, The Atomic Paradise. My companion and... More

We are repeat customers. This is a truly special place. Never mind that it is reasonably priced and an easy walk to all of the best restaurants and galleries in Palm Springs. The reason we return is the privacy, comfort, charming decor, and friendly staff. The delicious, simple yogurt and fruit breakfast every morning, the lovely clean pool, the easy,... More

Where do I start to describe the mid-century wonderfulness and awesome retro vibe? We were looking for a perfect spot to spend New Years - we wanted the palmiest of palms for our getaway. One of our rules is that the pool, our room and the front desk need to be no more than 30 seconds walking distance from each... More

We have stayed at both the Hideway (sister property) and the Orbit In. Both are great options - 2 minutes apart. The owners are fabulous hosts and their pride of ownership is plainly evident throughout. The Orbit In is extremely well maintained and has a great vibe about it. It is one of those small hotels that just does everything... More

The first walk into the Orbit In is a “Wow” .. and the experience just got better and better. Orbit in is set amongst a gorgeous mountainous backdrop .. and is in the perfect location. It is walking distance to the main drag. The hotel is a mid-century gem & has been perfectly preserved with original tiles and fittings. The... More

Once again, my week at the Orbit In was incredibly enjoyable. We had such a nice group of guests and shared a lot of experiences and suggestions about what to do and see in Palm Springs. Repeating what I've said since my first visit, this place has the best combination of service, location, comfort, friendliness and that great mid-century ambiance... More

great place for all midcentury lovers!!! we had a record player and a fireplace in our room, very friendly owner, no additional charge for wine, sodas, WLAN, breakfast, coffee; nice little bar next to the pool, nice little outside hot tub. The Orbit Inn has two houses, we would recommend the one where the reception building is situated. Super nice... More
