I planned a long weekend at Hotel California after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. My first hand experience at Hotel California was exceptional. We arrived early and were able to check-in upon arrival (a pleasant suprise). The property is small and intimate with great ammenties. The rooms are arranged in a courtyard setting around the main pool area. The property has lush landscaping and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. At check-in the friendly staff took our credit card and said that it would be charged for the room only and no other charges would be made to our card for any of the ammenities on the property. We enjoyed the use of beach cruisers each morning, our room stocked with a snack pack and bottled water, the recreation room where I borrowed a book and cards and the kitchen that was had fruit and coffee available daily. There was also a grill area and use of a full kitchen to prepare food. We refilled our waters in the kitchen multiple timese a day, If we were staying longer we may have cooked in the kitchen or grilled out back. The property was smoke free (which was much appreciated) and the pool and spa are open for use late as long as you are a "good neighbor". The last night of our stay we were sitting outside playing cards and an employee offered us wine! The next morning we requested a late check-out. They said no one was checking in and we could stay all day if we like! I almost forgot to mention, they have complimentary limosine service! I plan to go back to enjoy the limo ride (a short mile or two) to downtown Palm Springs. I can't wait to go back later this summer! If you enjoy friendly service, great value and an imtimate relaxing boutique type hotel I would strongly recommend Hotel California.
