We have visited this inn several times and love it. Many years ago it was the home of Olympic ice skating champion Sonja Henie (sp?) who then became a movie star. The rooms are of varying sizes. The furnishings are eclectic but each piece and each wall hanging and most knick-knacks. were used in Hollywood movies. The inn has a...

We stayed a couple of nights, just walked in and booked. The price was much better than booking online. The staff were all very friendly, the property is beautiful, and quiet, it has a Tuscan style, the gardens and pools are well maintained and the rooms had a a lot of charm with lovely quirky old furnishings and were clean...

Its a quirky little boutique hotel. Its old, has charm, and is maintained nicely. The one bedroom we had was huge and decorated from an era gone by. The staff aims to please. The neighborhood is a little sketchy.

This was the fourth or fifth time staying at the Villa Royale Inn. It is under new ownership within the last two years and it seems the "kinks" have been worked out. Beautiful property and lovely rooms all decorated differently. Staff are exceptionally nice and efficient and bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful. Very good quiet place for...

This property is filled with enchantment around every corner, from the morning glory vined brook to the rose gardened pathway which leads to the jacuzzi with hummingbirds and butterflies everywhere....not to mention the most romantic ambience as you dine in Europa while a harpist plays heavenly tunes (Sat. nites) and delectable meals are impeccably served....pure sweetness! Especially for the couple...

We found Villa Royale through a TravelPony special. The property is older, harking back to the golden years of Palm Springs as retreat for Los Angeles power players. The rooms are quaint and charming if a bit dated. Solid brick walls mean that the entire compound is stone silent. Breakfast was included in our stay and while the menu is...

This hidden '40s gem is close to downtown and full of historic character, pretty foliage, and deep swimming pools all to yourself in the summer. Breakfast is included and is served in your room the days the restaurant isn't open. The two bedroom villa is spacious and comfortable with unique furnishings. The staff members were helpful and kind. No resort...

I stumbled on this hidden gem and thank God, that I did! Was catapulted back in time to a quieter gentler time in history. This is the kind of place that makes you think of movie sets and glamorous movie stars. I loved the lush grounds and hidden gardens, pools are clear and crisp and the spa is private. Loved,...
