Awesome awesome awesome! Not a corny Moroccan themed hotel. The owner & caretakers take pride in keeping everything as close to being in Morrocco as possible. Everything was so wonderful! The delicious breakfast, soothing perfect temperature pool & spa, massage, room amenities & decor was exactly what my husband and I needed to have a mini getaway from the kids.... More

Wow, what a magical place! I enjoyed my time at El Morocco Inn so much that I was looking into booking another stay on my flight back! The decor is very charming. They paid immaculate attention to detail in making this place look like morocco. When you enter through the front door, the smell of the essential oils transports you... More

Forget corporate owned places like some in DHS. This is a keeper. Always great rooms, service and hot springs. We have been coming here for years and it only becomes better with time. It has been three years since our last visit and it was great to see some changes that only make this probably the best place to stay... More

We spent 4 nights at El Morocco at the end of April motivated entirely by the 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor. Overall we had a good time. Positive: Wonderful pools. Fabulous. 92 degrees and 105 degrees. All personnel outstanding. Outdoor spaces (around pool and a rather interesting garden area) extremely nice. Negative: Our room: claustrophic, full of endless Moroccan-wannabe stuff.... More

While on vacation in Palm Springs my sister in law and I were looking for a spa with hot springs. At the recommendation of the front desk clerk we decided to try the El Morocco Inn &Spa. What a w wonderful choice! Much of the decor is from Morocco!

The hotel draws its water from the natural mineral hot springs that run under the property. The water is rumored to have restorative and healthful effects. It is relaxing. The entire hotel has a Morroccan theme to the decor, the breakfast, the happy hour drink and the movie Casablanca playing constantly in the library. The hotel is very quiet and... More

Thanks for taking the time to write! You described it perfectly...Glad you had a restful trip and hope you'll return again to soak in these restorative mineral water pools. You probably already guessed this, but the inn was built up in this neighborhood because it sits right on top of the mineral water flow. We pump it straight up and... More

Be very careful. Unethical and rude management. We just sat with them on the phone for 20 minutes to reserve a room for tomorrow night.

Bruce responding here...just a point of clarification...during the time you were deciding whether or not you wanted to reserve that room, someone else booked it online! This can happen when it takes a little time to decide. Was that smell you mentioned "sour grapes" perhaps? All kidding aside, I'm sorry that occurred, but it can happen! Hope you'll try us... More

We picked this hotel out based on YELP reviews to celebrate our daughters and son in laws 30th birthdays. The whole place is decorated with Moroccan art and furniture. It's basically a 12 room motel around a hot springs that's been converted into a Moroccan casbah. Great fun, campy. The room "pasha's playpen" has a round bed with brightly colored... More

Just wanted to say glad you had a good time and enjoyed the ambience. We created a little hideaway-so that when you step inside you feel completely transported to somewhere far away from your cares. Come see us again soon, we'll save a spot in a hammock out in the Spa garden for ya! Bruce More

Once you step through the front door you enter another world. First do not be fooled by the outside, as it is in a neighborhood where you would not expect it.
