“Accommodating and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We've been visiting the Queen of Hearts since it opened 14+ years ago and have never been disappointed. The owner goes out of her way to accommodate the guests--and even their pets--to assure everyone has a pleasant stay. We celebrated our anniversary during our most recent stay and were surprised with a gourmet cupcake and other little thoughtful touches. As a frequent business traveler, I truly appreciate an attentive and caring property owner and staff, whether at a 5-star hotel or a casual boutique motel like the Queen of Hearts. It makes all the difference, and keeps up coming back every year.

The Queen of Hearts is a wonderful place in the southwest area of Palm Springs. The grounds are lovely and offer a view of the San Jacinto Mountains, and the rooms are spacious and charming with all the amenities. You can mingle or enjoy your solitude around the pool where the common area is serene and beautiful; it offers several configurations so you can choose a space to fit your mood. Pool toys are provided as are towels and BBQ facilities, fresh fruit, an abundance of birdsong...perfect. Michelle is exactly the right mix of friendly and professional and is eager to assist you with any detail. It is a big plus that dogs are allowed, and an additional plus that only well behaved dogs are welcome and responsible ownership is required. Michelle has created a beautiful oasis.

I really don't want to write this review. I don't want you to know about this little gem in Palm Springs because then maybe it will be too full for me to book. But here goes...
This lovely women's resort is just the kind of place to feel safe, relaxed, and right at home. The units each have a kitchen so if you want to cook, you can vacation on a budget. The barbeque is handy for some quick grilling and cd's/radio poolside add to the ambiance.
Yah, I know. Sounds lousy, doesn't it?
AND it's sunny. Like all day. And Michelle picks oranges and grapefruits for you. These seem to lend themselves to juicing with alcohol.
You've lost interest, haven't you?
At night, you can light a Presto-log in the firepit and enjoy some wine poolside while stargazing and visiting with wonderful women from all over the country - including the Great White North, eh?
I don't suppose you would like this at all.
Floaties are provided if you care to drift around whilest taking in the backdrop of Palm Springs hillside and palmtrees and listening to the birds chirping in the bougainvillea. This is not a roudy place.
Booooring...
My wife and I are making plans with fourteen of our closest friends to book this entire place.
Now go away.

Room Tip: All the room layouts are the same, so any room is a good one.

Queen of Hearts is the ideal place for a getaway in Palm Springs. There's always some activity around the pool, but it's never crazy or out of control. The size (9-rooms) is perfect, and they're laid out around the pool so you can meet people, or just be in your room or patio. I was here mid-week in March and it was delightful: clean, spacious room; clean pool; fresh citrus picked every day by the wonderful hostess, Michelle. She has excellent dinner recommendations, just off the top of her head, and is very accommodating, but not in your face like at some bed and breakfasts. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Room 8 if you want a little extra privacy, Room 2 if you want a view of the mountains. But Michelle...

I love this place and Michelle is professional, courteous and always willing to go that extra mile to help you feel at home. The accommodations are spacious and the rooms have all the amenities.
But it is the gracious and consistent service that keeps bringing me back. Friends made at the Heart are keepers and times spent are deliciously served with a smile and mood music.

The dog friendly atmosphere and general natural beauty are extras...

If you are looking to relax and shed the worlds challenges and ya like sun this is the place for you,

Room Tip: All rooms have there charm.

I loved this resort more than any fancy, over-priced hotel. As everyone has said Michelle is a wonderful lady. Me and my girlfriend were pretty busy so we weren't able to stay at the resort much, but the time we did spend was awesome!! Already making plans to go back. :)

i was traveling with 4 little dogs and was welcomed by the owner, Michelle, upon arrival. Michelle was extremely friendly and accommodating, making me feel very comfortable. the rooms are like apartments with bath, kitchen, front room and bedroom, equipped with everything i needed. i stayed for 1 week and then stayed for a week at a house i previously reserved, and i found i missed the kind people and warm atmosphere that i experienced at the Queen of Hearts.
