Kass and Steve showed me around the newly remodeled rooms and pool of Arenas Gardens Hotel in the Historic Tennis Club District of Palm Springs. I ended up staying in the Pool Studio, excellent for one person, right next to the pool. The 4 Bungalows, all decorated with items that they had found throughout the Coachella Valley in antique stores and private sales, are like private apartments, dotted around the large grounds and gardens of the hotel. By the way, they just opened the hotel for short stay summer guests, with a 2 night minimum. Price is so reasonable, at $120/night. For that you get a large living room, full kitchen, bedroom, private patio and/or terrace. And you are within walking distance (if you are so inclined) 3 blocks away from Palm Canyon Drive and its restaurants, shops and galleries. Check out their new website at www.ArenasGardensHotel.com which has a lot of photos of all the facilities.
