We tried to get a room at the Desert Riveria, which was sold out, and were offered the last remaining room for the weekend at the hotel's sister property, the Hotel California. The hotel lived up to all of its wonderful reviews. Larry and Patti are very hospitable -- they get to know all their guests by name and were very helpful in providing suggestions of restaurants, information about hiking, booking reservations for us, and arranging for complimentary transportation downtown. The property was great -- approx. 13 moderate size rooms surrounding a courtyard with pool, decks and several cozy sitting spots. The common kitchen is stocked with spices and they have two grills that they'll set up and clean if you want to BBQ. The pool, while small, is heated and cozy and the landscaping is attractive.They also offer complimentary wine, beer and soft dinks in the evening as well as have on hand fresh fruit and other snacks for all hours. The property is a little more than a mile to walk into town but is a very easy short drive and the limo service downtown at night was convenient. The rooms have tv's with DVDs and there's a common room with DVDs to borrow as well as books and games. We would highly recommend either of their two properties.
