My partner and I decided to stay here after reviewing 'pet friendly' hotels in Palm Springs since we would be travelling with our 5 pound Pomeranian 'fur baby'. This place does not dissapoint. The hosts Brian and Vic are very friendly. We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and they were kind enough to invite us into their home for Thanksgiving dinner. They are excellent cooks! We went to Palm Springs to get married and had the ceremony poolside at their Casa Ocotillo. Our suite, located at the very back of the property, was very private. We had a large yard and private patio to ourselves and the room was very attractive and comfortable. This is not your typical run-of-the-mill property.....they have furnished all of the suites with original art and quality furnishings and bed linens. A big plus is the guest kitchen with snacks and beverages available 24 hours a day. The location is super convenient to Palm Canyon Drive and all kinds of restaurants and shopping. We'll definately be staying there next time we're in Palm Springs.
