Wonderful renovation of a classic building. Well landscaped courtyard provides privacy from the street. Pool was especially welcome as it was a very hot day. Highly recommended. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I was torn between a couple of properties for our usual PS summer trip. Desert Riviera, Little Paradise and this place. All advertising adult only/ non smoking lodging. The good first. We were able to check in a bit early and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms are lovely. The pool is perfect. No the not so good. We had... More

Having driven 4 hours from Vegas it was great to be able to stop over in Colt's Lodge and rest up for the night. Check in was easy and as we arrived out of hours received clear instructions from Job on how to get to our room. We were upgraded which was a nice surprise and the room (number 4)... More

We choose the Empire Room because it overlooked the pool and it was magnificent. All the rooms have been updated with tiled showers with hanging amenities, including shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. I loved the hardwood floors and the mattress extremely comfortable. If you're looking for something more intimate and quaint, I would highly recommend Colt's lodge.

What a wonderful boutique place to Spend the night. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are very well designed and presented. The grounds are especially pretty at night with the palms all out up. Well worth the visit if you prefer a quieter stay than at other hotels

We had a lovely time and would highly recommend the lodge (even though there was a heat wave in the low desert)! Very nice to stay close to the pool so we could go in and out for drinks and to cool off. Owners were very hospitable and friendly. There had been road construction in front of the lodge leading...

We received such a pleasant welcome from Frank when we went to visit friends who were staying there. They allowed us to spend time in the pool and gardens with our friends which we thought was wonderful. I was very impressed by the property and facilities which includes a kitchen so you can use the plates etc for your own... More

I booked my parents into Colts Lodge. They loved the facility and enjoyed the rooms and the grounds. They plan on coming back and staying. The owners were very easy to work with and the service was excellent. They loved the neon diving lady and the rock garden. We had breakfast several times and the meals were great, We spent... More

This hotel was recommended to me by another hotel that I had called but was fully booked. I spoke with Job at Colt's Lodge and I was informed that they had one room left and that the minimum stay was 3 nights for holiday weekends. Their rates were great so my friend and I decided to book the room at... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Unbelievable Piece of Property" 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 18,2015 I went on a private tour of this 1954 hotel and was blown away about this little known diamond. Totally renovated and opens June 1, 2015. Location fabulous with a view of the San Jacinto Mountains, beautiful landscaped grounds, historic pool and central living room/kitchen for guests. Each room is decorated by an internationally known designer with 11 individual themes. Owners Jon and Frank have spared no expense at this renovation. Perfect place for special events and has a Honeymoon Suite. I highly recommend staying here. Room Tip: All are beautiful. Have refrigerator and microwave.
