“So lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The guys who run this hotel are the nicest, most thoughtful, most detail oriented men ever. From bringing us water and treats poolside to making sure we had everything we needed for the wedding we were going to - we loved this place and will be back as soon as we can.

This may have been our 5th or 6th stay - and they get better each time. The property is small and well-maintained by the owners who go out of their way to make sure the guest is well taken care of. From remembering our birthdays to giving me a ride over to the airport - the service provided is low key and flawless. If you are done with the big chain hotels (we were) this is the place to come home to.

When we return to Palm Springs we will be staying at Alpine Gardens Hotel. Bill and Tom are excellent hosts, taking an interest in your vacation and helping you feel relaxed. Our room (6) was spacious and clean with a good AC unit and a powerful shower. Thank you Bill and Tom, your hotel deserves the excellent reviews it receives.

I won't go anywhere else now in Palm Springs. Tom and Bill are AWESOME. They know just the little touches that will make you feel comfortable and able to better enjoy your time.
You get more value for your money here than I have ever experience.
Every room has it's own special personality.

What more do you need!? I had a lovely stay in a room that stayed nice and cold (thank heavens as it was HOT outside). Pool was lovely and I had a chance to star gaze as I swam at night! Tom and Bill are thoughtful hosts and Tom in particular (as he is who checked me in) went above and beyond! Great value for money as well. Thanks for a great getaway!

Back again for more pampering and great, personalized service. We just missed Tom by a day as he was out of town (boo!), but Bill of course handled every possible need. It was hot, of course, but though the pool 'officially' closes at 10:00 p.m., as long as one is extremely quiet, you can go in at any time of night, which we did -- 2:00 a.m. peace under the stars and palms! Had the entire hotel to ourselves on the 2nd night so we could do as we pleased at all hours! Miss Kitty has been ailing a bit but is on the mend (hyperthyroid being treated). It is a lovely place to have peace and quiet for a day or two. Reminder: This is a place for couples, older travelers and those looking for a wonderful quiet getaway. There are no youth/childrens facilities or activities here, so kids are likely to be bored fairly quickly.

Room Tip: If you're needing white noise to sleep, the wonderfully jet-engine loud a/c-heating units will p...
