“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.

Our 1st time in Palm Springs. My husband & I could not have picked a better place. The hosts(Tom & Bill) are awesome. VERY frienly and accomadating.The hotel grounds and rooms are very clean. We HIGHLY recommend Alpine Gardens. We were very comfortable. Thank you so much Tom& Bill.

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.

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...

My wife and I travel to the States and stay in motels/hotels about 40 days a year and this place has to rate right up there at the top. Tom and Bill are great hosts. The rooms, pool,hot tub and grounds are clean and immaculate. This small hotel makes you feel like you are staying at a friend's place. Thanks Tom and Bill. We will be stopping in again in the future.

"Unbelievable Piece of Property" 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 18,2015 I went on a private tour of this 1954 hotel and was blown away about this little known diamond. Totally renovated and opens June 1, 2015. Location fabulous with a view of the San Jacinto Mountains, beautiful landscaped grounds, historic pool and central living room/kitchen for guests. Each room is decorated by an internationally known designer with 11 individual themes. Owners Jon and Frank have spared no expense at this renovation. Perfect place for special events and has a Honeymoon Suite. I highly recommend staying here. Room Tip: All are beautiful. Have refrigerator and microwave.
