Everything worked well. Staff was most accommodating and friendly. Grounds were lovely and the pool was heated to a very comfortable temperature. Hot tub so relaxing. Other guests at the hotel were a friendly and an interesting bunch. Location was great near the river walk so that I could take our dog out there for a morning and evening stroll....

We stayed there for three nights in March, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although we had a small standard studio, it was fine for us two with a luxurious king-sized bed, a little stove top and fridge and private patio in back. The front door led to a beautiful, green courtyard and the pool area. Family-run operation and well-maintained. Since...

Well, we had another wonderful stay at A Place in the Sun (though too brief). The room was clean and, since we like to cook in the places in which we stay, we were pleased with the well stocked kitchen, utensils and pots and pans, etc.

I stayed here for two nights with my Wife and our small dog. It was nothing short of perfect. The room was warm and comfortable, the kitchen was cute and functional, the bed was very comfortable and the grounds were well kept and QUIET. The pool and hot tub are salt water. Which, feels amazing compared to anything else. Michael...

I enjoyed my stay at the Place in the Sun. I got there late at night to find everything set up perfectly for me. It was like a little relaxing Oasis. Just what I needed! The next morning I had a wonderful breakfast there. Met the owners and the staff it felt like family. Thank you for a wonderful time!...

We keep coming back to OUR Place in the Sun! Nice rooms, nice people, peaceful and quiet. The neighborhood is nice for a morning walk. And the last time we went they had a special dinner open for all guests. That's all we need!

A Place in the Sun offered us a peaceful, clean, simple yet elegant place to relax while in Palm Springs. Basically it is an efficiency apartment for the price of a hotel room, with a great pool, breakfast & friendly staff. Loved it & will definately stay there when we return to the area!

Love this hotel. It is so quaint, quiet and friendly. Love Michael, who was on property last weekend working. He was so helpful, especially with my yappy dog. He put out a very nice breakfast by the pool each morning and had towels in our room waiting for us because we were a late check in. Can't wait to return!
