“Desert Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We've just spent four delightful days at La Maison. It seems like an oasis in the middle of Palm Springs - very private and peaceful within it's hacienda-like walls. The courtyard offers sun or shade, quiet nooks or conversation groupings, chaise lounges or tables & chairs - whatever your heart desires.

Owners Richard & Cornelia offer a level of hospitality most often found only in B & B's, plus a poolside continental breakfast (with homemade touches) & a late afternoon happy hour! They are experienced innkeepers as evidenced by their seeming ability to read the minds of their guests! No muss, no fuss; just special little touches that appear as if by magic. Lovely!

Our room was spacious and opened directly onto the pool deck - perfect for easy access to those early morning specialty lattes served up by Richard, for afternoon dips in the pool and for evening soaks in the hot tub.

We'll definitely be back for another visit, and would happily recommend La Maison to anyone looking for a Palm Springs getaway.

Had a completely relaxing and productive (I'm in grad school) stay here. The owners are super nice and their dog Murphy is a total bonus. The rooms are clean and quiet and the pool is a fantastic space for relaxing and soaking up the rays. While it was not within walking distance to downtown Palm Springs, taking a cab is no problem. There is also a grocery store and restaurants across the street, if you don't care to venture into downtown. Overall, I would definitely stay again.

After our surprise when extending a long weekend during Modernism week back in February, we knew we'd be back during our typical Fall get-away. LaMaison was our second leg of our SoCal trip after visiting w/ family in the San Diego area.

Richard and Cornelia surpassed all expectations again with the ultimate in hospitality! Always around for a chat, but they always seem to know when to give you your space. It just makes for such a wonderful stay when your hosts make you feel important!

Morning lattes, and fresh made cakes, muffins or scones (all homemade by Cornelia), along w/ yogurts, bagels, and orange juice start your day. Mid to late afternoon means beer and wine when you return from your excursion. Grab a cocktail and your patio chair, plunk your feet in the pool and relax!

Clean, nicely appointed rooms with comfortable beds and clean linens makes for a nice evening and great sleep.

There's nothing over the top or fancy about LaMaison, but everything you need is there in a courtyard style secluded inn that's clean, comfortable and makes you feel at home!

If you're looking for a clean, comfortable, small/boutique style inn in Palm Springs with nice ammenities, and hosts that are over-the-top kind and warm, ...look no further!

Our second stay is complete and we already feel a part of the family! We will return!

p.s. Enjoy a latte at the "bar" with Richard in the morning ... not only are they great, but the conversation of always fantastic!

Also, "Murphy" the family Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier is sweet as can be. I already miss his morning greetings on the way to 'latte-time'.

Room Tip: Room 1 is our favorite, rooms 2 and 3 are just about as large. Generally speaking , this is a quiet...

A great, private mini resort with about 13+ rooms. Super location and perfect situation for morning to afternoon sun.

Bed was comfortable and amenities were appropriate for the space.

Definitely recommend it for a long weekend or a week+ stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #2, but I saw most of the rooms and if you look at their website they give the low...

My wife and I stumbled across this gem and couldn't believe how it made you feel like being in a remote European destination even though it is beautifully located in Palm Springs.
Cornelia, our host, was so very welcoming and always made us feel like we were at home. Service and amenities were second to none. And the beauty and seculed feeling of the hotel were perfect. Very clean I might add.

Room Tip: all room great but downstairs anywhere is amazing.

La Maison is a wonderful hotel and a very good value. Hosts Richard and Cornelia create a welcoming atmosphere adding special touches to make guests feel at home. The rooms are smallish, but clean and comfortable and the courtyard/pool area is a great place to relax over breakfast or after a day of activities. We loved our stay and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Palm Springs.

I stayed at la Maison in April 2012.
The owners are the cutest couple in the world that were very helpful and friendly. The husband is a bit of a jokster and he made me laugh a lot.
The pool was amazing as was the hot tub. Free beer? Are you kidding me? I felt like i died and went to heaven.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
I'll be back next year.
