Just got back from three nights at POSH and I was very happy with this quaint B and B. the breakfasts served in the morning were delicious and a great way to start the day. The room was clean and had everything we needed. I liked how the rooms open up onto the pool - making it so easy to pop in and out if you need to. The complimentary bottled water and peanuts and jelly beans were a nice touch too! Thanks Tony and Santo - we 'll be back!

My wife and I had a wonderful stay recently at the POSH Palm Springs Inn. Tony and Santo make every effort to have you enjoy your visit. Great breakfasts, restful sleeps and you must try their special POSHtini drink during happy hour.

We've never slept so well away from home. Quiet, relaxing, welcoming. And fresh flowers to help us celebrate our anniversary! Lovely gesture! When our flight home was delayed, we were welcomed back to enjoy refreshments by the pool until we had to leave for the airport. We were treated like family. Thank you, Tony and Santo. And congratulations on your ribbon cutting ceremony!

We arrived at POSH after a gruelling few days travelling from London to Las Vegas (husband's work) to find this peaceful haven run by our delightful innkeepers Tony and Santo. At once we felt at home. There are only ten rooms set around a swimming pool. Room 2 was a joy with the extra space for hubbie's office, why won't he stop working? We had nearly a week of complete relaxation. The day started with one of Tony's amazing breakfasts (our favourite being blueberry pancakes with a side of sausages or bacon) served by Santo. We then lounged around the pool most of the day. Happy hour from 4-5 was great and a good way to meet and get to know other guests (particularly some friends passing through from San Francisco and a lovely couple living in Seattle/LA - doglady!). We hope we cross paths again. Tony and Santo would join us and were so helpful with advice as to where to eat etc. We would highly recommend this delightful Inn and hope very much to stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 2 for the extra space

The Posh Hotel is quirky but wonderful. Full of surprises such as FREE bottled water and as much as you want. Just help yourself from the fridge by the pool! Also free, are mini packets of jelly beans and peanuts in our room and these are replaced each day. Our room was beautiful and each room is decorated differently (there are 9 in total all centred around the swimming pool). There were a few problems we had however. One was the size of the bathroom which was tiny and very old fashioned. There was a small bath and the shower was just a shower head and there was a shower curtain which you had to make sure was inside the bath in order not to flood the floor. The other problem we had was that the lights were kept on all night at the pool and there were no blackout blinds and the blinds that were there did not shut out the light. The last problem we had was the WiFi which was really non existent in the room and the only way we could get it was if we went outside or up to the office area. However, the owners did say that they were aware of this and were going to do something about it and they were also going to do something about getting curtains or blackout blinds in the rooms. Otherwise the room was huge and also had its own kitchen with all the equipment you would need to cook with, including fridge and microwave. There was also a super size TV with all the cable channels. Another delight was the inclusive freshly cooked breakfast each morning made by one of the owners and it was different every day. Fresh fruit smoothies, Spanish type omelettes with sausage etc. – delicious. Then each evening the owner would make his special Margarita for Happy Hour poolside. Any guests who wished would gather to partake of homemade guacamole, tacos and fresh vegetables. A great way to meet people. The pool is heated to 70 degrees and beside it is a hot tub which is a wonderful place to go in the evening for a dip. It is about 5 minutes by car from local supermarkets and shops and a few minutes more to the main shopping area, restaurants and night spots. We would definitely go back and the owners are so welcoming.

Room Tip: Ask for our room which was down at the end opposite the hot tub - can't remember the room number...

We've stayed at several places in the Palm Springs area, and this was the best by far. Tony and Santos were gracious hosts, and we really appreciated being on such a quiet street. The pool is so lovely at night with the blue/purple lights, just perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. The breakfasts were delicious (frittatas, fruit smoothies or a large glass of fresh fruit, French toast, good juice) and so filling that we didn't even need lunch until 2 when we were at the Indian Wells tennis tournament (an easy half hour drive on Interstate 10). When this inn was combined with Casa de Frida, the best restaurant we have ever found in the area, this was just a really nice experience. Our room was a bit small but very comfortable.

Our stay at POSH Palm Springs for the weekend was wonderful & exceeded our expectations! Tony & Santo, our hosts, were fabulous, the food was really delicious and meeting the hotel guests was great fun! Other guests were also happy & it was evident why some were there for an extended stay. Tony and Santo couldn't have been more wonderful. Tony is a great chef and they served a delicious breakfast daily. We also enjoyed their happy hour and great drinks - a perfect way to meet the other guests. We even became friendly with a fabulous couple from Britain - who were there for almost a week! The room, the pool and the hotel were very quiet, extremely clean and very comfortable. The room was beautifully decorated, had many amenities, with a bed you would love in your home. Tony & Santo were such friendly & personable hosts who were eager to make your stay great. They were very helpful and gave us ideas of where to eat and what to do in Palm Springs. Yet, we were very content staying in their hotel - an extremely private and comfortable place to be. We enjoyed so many aspects of POSH that we didn't want to leave! We will tell our friends to treat themselves to a POSH getaway!
