“Home away from home!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Perfect place to unwind and forget all your troubles.
Once you enter the gate of the resort you will be greeted by the always cheerful owner Michelle. The check in process takes all of five minutes, you will then be escorted to your private cottage. The nine spacious rooms surround the pool area, each unit includes a kitchenette, living room/bedroom and bath. All rooms and common areas are clean and well kept. Michelle takes pride in making sure all guests feel welcome. I may have had a little too much fun at Hunters; locked myself out of my room, my cell was dead, luckily my neighbor Barb was still awake, she called Michelle to my rescue! Most mornings and early evenings guests are hanging out by their patio’s or the pool. You will quickly make new friends.

We have stayed here many times, and it is always wonderful. The pool is the highlight, heated for early morning and late night swims. This is a lovely, relaxing spot that is perfect for us, private,quiet, romantic and friendly.The kitchen was equipped with toaster, full stove, refrigerator, every kitchen utensil we could need , a tea kettle , coffee pot and more. Michelle is attentive and eager for her guests to have a good experience. We asked to change rooms after our first night to be in our favorite suite, and she made it happen. She got reservations with a spectacular table at a restaurant downtown, and suggestions for things to do, although we mostly just wanted to be there. Plan to be back in the spring. Thanks Michelle.

Excellent place to stay in Palm Springs. Very clean, cozy, friendly and romantic. If you want a relaxing getaway, this is the place to go! The pool is right outside your door. The service is top notch.

We truly enjoy staying at the Queen of Hearts. We have had a reunion with old time friends for the last 6 years at the Queen of Hearts and everyone has a great time. The rooms lend themselves to feeling like being home and entertaining on home turf. Except the Queen of Hearts is nicer than my home so this is more relaxing and better for all! The pool is wonderful and the grounds are always clean and well cared for.
When was the last time you felt comfortable not locking your door when you left your room, if even to sit by the pool? We never once had to use our key. And when we had our group BBQ on Saturday night, we invited the whole Motel. Where else would you do that?
We always meet other nice women and are sometimes lucky enough to have them live close to us so we can continue the friendships.
Thanks to Michelle, the owner, all requests are cheerfully taken care of and referrals to restaurants are always delicious! Michelle will never steer you wrong.
Lots of fun here!

Room Tip: Room # 8 would be the best for seclusion. Otherwise, all rooms are delicious.

We stayed at the Queen of Hearts Resort on Saturday, October 27th in room #8. It was a truly wonderful, peaceful and relaxing night. My partner and I were celebrating our 8 year anniversary and we picked exactly the right spot for our needs.

THE OWNER: Michelle is fantastic. She is so friendly and accommodating. From the time I spoke with her on the phone to make the reservation to the check in to check out.... she was wonderful. She really knows her clientele and even sat down and played poker with the guests before the night was over! A+

THE FACILITY: The hotel is off the main drag and is hidden on an adorable street behind an unassuming wall and a locked door. The pool is at the center of the facility and the rooms surround it. Each room has a lovely little decorated patio to itself. There is a gazebo area, a grill area and tables, chairs and loungers all around the pool. There are also lovely decorations all around that give it a welcoming and desert-y feel.

ROOM 8: This room was AMAZING! It is the last room in the row and only shares 1 wall with other guests. the patio was partially enclosed and had its own table and chairs as well as some soft patio furniture with a fan above. The room was big with a huge comfy bed, lovely rustic furniture, a FULL kitchen with its own back patio.... a dressing area and a shower bath. It was impeccably clean. It had lovely adobe floor tiles. The original details from decades long gone by were all impeccably maintained. Soft squishy towels were provided, as were robes, hair dryer, iron, board, etc. Again, it was IMPECCABLY, SQUEAKY clean.

OTHER GUESTS: The other guest were as nice as the owner. When we arrived, we were individually greeted by each guest and welcomed to the group. They told us that they were doing a bbq later and that we should join. After a long while in the pool, we found ourselves in a mean game of poker and had many laughs! That night we all used the grill and shared food and had lovely conversation. We woke up the next morning to some of the ladies offering to share their lovely breakfast items and coffee with us..... we felt so loved and welcome!

DOGS: Most of the guests had brought little dogs with them. We also brought our dog. Everyone was very responsible about the animals and all got along. It was a great addition to the night.

BOTTOM LINE: if you are looking for a quiet, secluded palm springs location that caters to lesbian women and their dogs, THIS Is the place! CLEAN! Zero drama. Lovely guests. Beautiful vintage but modern facility. A+++++++

We will be back very soon! :-)

Room Tip: Room 8 is the biggest and best of all the rooms. It is fantastic.... Other rooms are smaller but lov...

Don't know who liked it more...my partner & I while we celebrated our 8-year anniversary or our dog because of the pampering of Michelle. Hard to say because BOTH were outstanding. Heated pool, full kitchen, GREAT COMPANY. Queen of Hearst has now become our 2nd home in Palm Springs!

Room Tip: Corner suites have FULL KITCHENS...like an apartment away from home & BRINGS THOSE ANIMALS!
