I have stayed in other hotels in the area. The room itself was fairly small for the price and the furniture very chepside-not what one expects at over $200 a night.The bathroom was alos extrememly small. The attraction here is the private pool connected to the room which was very nice. Again for the money we paid the ppol was... More

Hi, BBrookline. Thank you for your feedback on the Soleil Suite in which you stayed during your stay. You are indeed right, the greatest appeal involving these rooms are the private, jetted mineral water pools. We do offer very attractive weekday rates that are considerably under $200. Weekend/Holiday rates are always higher due to the demand for these rooms. Please... More

Supposed to be one of the better value places in DHS. The premises aren't too bad but 2 wings of the hotel (it is a big square or rectangle complex completely enclosing the pool area) are old style with the only windows in the rooms facing into the common external corridor so there will be privacy issues (rooms are a...

Very nice room with two queen beds, a nice bath with separate clothing and makeup area, very nice artwork and bright walls. My niece and I enjoyed our two night stay.

We went with this hotel because it is family friendly. It could be a gem but it needs a bit revamping. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The overall appearance of the outside of the hotel is a bit rundown and really is dated. The pool was nice and clean. The hot tubs were also nice... More

Choose this hotel because of the reviews and price. We checked in on Thursday evening and out on Saturday morning. I was a little skeptical when we drove up - doesn't look that great from the outside!

I have stayed at this hotel three times, as Desert Hot Springs is a great getaway spot for me. I particularly enjoy the premium Soleil Suite here-- there's really nothing more fantastic than having a mineral pool within your room!

Desert Hot Springs is far from the whole Palms Springs scene (restaurants, shops, etc.) In fact, there's very few things around the hotel. The hotel has gone through some internal renovations (rooms, restaurant), but the actual "shell" of the hotel has like a 1980s vibe. We had a nice and quite time, except on Saturday night when the put up... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains and at the edge of Joshua Tree National Park is the city of Desert Hot Springs, California, where you will find one of the best kept spa hotel secrets called the Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa. Our hotel features three gleaming pools filled with hot mineral water drawn from the Desert Hot Springs aquifer deep beneath the earth's surface by our onsite well. For centuries this odorless and mineral-rich water is believed to hold curative powers. We offer a variety of well-appointed room types to fit your needs, all of which have been recently remodeled. Our Single Queen and King rooms afford comfortable accommodations with unique and radiant color schemes. Our Double Queen rooms offer a second queen-sized bed and are ideal for guests needing additional space. Our Soleil Suites feature a huge 6x10' private, jetted mineral water pool inside of the suite. Our full-service spa, The Spa at Soleil, offers a number of relaxing and rejuvenating body treatments, facials and massages. The Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa is the ideal getaway spot for those looking for a serene and relaxing atmosphere at an affordable price. Some might say we offer a taste of Palm Springs, just 15 minutes away, without the Palm Springs prices. ... more   less
