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

Our two night stay at the Orbit In came in the middle of a 2,400 mile road trip of California; we arrived late, dirty and stressed from a very long drive in the desert. As we pulled up, Bill was arriving on his bike, and he and Elaine immediately made us feel relaxed and pampered. Elaine brought a bottle of... More

This is a wonderful, hip, little hotel, a few blocks off the main road through Palm Springs. The owners and managers are easy-going, gracious, and really make you feel welcome. Loved the selection of albums (yes vinyl) to play on the turntables in each room. We stayed in the Rat Pack room, which was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a... More

My husband and I returned to the Orbit In for the second time in late March 2014. We are proud to be return "Orbiteers"! We had a fantastic experience! This is a classic mid-century modern hotel and a sun soaked haven (just like its sister property, The Hideaway, just down the street). The owners, Kevin & Jinny, and managers Bill... More
