Reading prior reviews, I thought this was going to be an extraordinary "boutique" place. Instead, it was just OK. We would have probably been happier if we had only paid $80 or so. But for the price we paid ($119 in the off-season), we could have stayed at the Hyatt, the Renaissance, or any of a number of higher-end properties.... More

We've stayed here twice now and we just love it. There's no "scene" here. It's just simply quaint and charming, a perfect little getaway! The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, and the pool is heaven.

We love going to A Place in the Sun in the summer. Usually less people and traffic. The hotel is always clean and comfortable, everyone that works there treats you like family. That's why we have been coming back for 16 years.

My family and I have been coming to this hotel for many years for a quiet and relaxing retreat from the stresses of city life. Always clean and well maintained, the quests were quiet and respectful of one another. But it seems that the party has come past the downtown strip and has made its way to A Place in... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. This happens sometimes. It can be a blessing, because we love the business; but also a curse, when we get a large group but not large enough to take over the whole hotel. Usually the atmosphere is "the more the merrier" at these functions, but I know that's not always... More

I am a Marriott kinda girl so I was hesitant about this place. I was so impressed with the friendliness and cleanliness that I was OK without the fancy resort perks. Michael at the front desk is welcoming and friendly and knew a lot of our names when we left. He really seems to care and it shows. It may... More

When we travel we like to explore boutique and/or independent accommodations. For us, clean and friendly rank high in any case, but "character" trumps "slick and well appointed." Upon arrival, this "mom and pop" hotel seems a bit tired and dated, but the 1950s feel suits Palm Springs and the rumoured creation of the accommodations to house the production crew... More

What a sweet little place! We just returned from a 4 day, 3 night stay. We were with a group of about 20 people. My husband and I loved everything about staying here. The pool, the bungalows, the service, but mostly the Staff, were all excellent. We look forward to many more visits to A Place In The Sun. Thank... More

We really enjoyed our stay and our dog did too. Best part was the pool and garden area. Friendly staff, free continental breakfast served til 10. Room 17 is a little funky due to the bed being in a really small space you have to squeeze by to get around it, and the shower is really small, but the room... More

When you walk in the gates it is like being transported to another era, a picture perfect pool and courtyard surrounded by lush flowering gardens all in perfect condition and then you see the 50's style bungalows all discreetly set around the pool. You are always greeted by Joe or Micheal in the office who are happy to greet you... More
