I stayed at the property when I was making my very first visit trip ever to California and to Palm Springs. I was there during Memorial Day week 2014 (May 27-29). The property was not as fully booked as it probably is on the weekends, and I actually really enjoyed this aspect. The few guys who were there during my... More

Bearfoot Inn is a small place, so don't expect a lobby, concierge, restaurant, etc. but if you're just looking for a place to hang and relax for a couple days it's just great. No lack of eating establishments within walking distance. The room was well appointed and the little kitchenette was more than adequate with small fridge, toaster, coffee maker... More

I read previous reviews of this hotel (after I made my reservation with nonrefundable first night deposit) and couldn't believe it was as bad as others reported. Trust me, what others have said is true. Upon arrival, the host greets you and shows you around. We asked about guests visiting and he told us about a $10 day-visitor fee. He... More

I spent two nights there this month and had a relaxing and lovely time. Staff was friendly and unobtrusive. Fellow vacationers were friendly and warm. My room (one of the upstairs ones) was terrific. I'd go back!

Stayed for two nights over the weekend. Clean, very large room, gorgeous view of the mountains from the second floor room we had. Pool area is very clean---nice group of men at the resort. Very well located to downtown--can park at the Inn and walk. We will return soon!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Next time you come back, you should enjoy the pool even more as we have recently changed over to salt water systems for both the pool and spa. See you soon! More

I stayed here and would advise anyone who is looking for luxury or generosity to choose an alternate place to stay. Let's get to the main problem I had, it was the host. I don't want to pick on him but Glenn is only friendly and mildly interested in your vacation upon arrival, once payment is made he shows no... More

Nice room with real comfy bed (double queen suite). Nice pool, jaccuzi .. nice bagels and coffee for breakfast. Need to be changed... metal sliding doors are very noisy and the downsrairs room hears every step made upstairs... this makes it hard to sleep inn... The place is generally clean but a bit dusty... maybe the manmaid should not use... More

Thank you for your comments... we have made several upgrades to the property but we felt that the sliding doors, which are from the original construction were worth keeping, since they are quite large, work impeccably and help make the aesthetic of this 1956 mid-century modern building what it is. We can assure you that our cleaners do not wear... More

My partner and I flew over from the East Coast for Pride. We really enjoyed our stay here. Glenn was a great host and very friendly.

Lovely little complex with a lush pool and cosy hot-tub. My only critique was the list of what we COULDN'T do. The other issue, we & all other guests were told to be silent basically after 11pm, due to the fact the hotel is built 6 inches from homes next door....slightly annoying as when you are on holiday you want...

Thank you for your great comments. We try to promote a friendly atmosphere and hope that our guests are able to enjoy themselves at all hours of the day, but as with any hotel, we request that noise levels be reduced (not silenced) after 11pm.

The resort itself is super clean and close to town! I was concerned about the "clothing optional" aspect of it, but found that it was not a big deal. We stayed in the King Suite upstairs that had a great view of the pool and hot tub and a full kitchen. Great for entertaining or for a quiet night in!!
