I have never had so much fun at a hotel in a long time! This is a lovely 1950's structure that has been updated to a casual and fun place Decor is rustic desert chic (I just made that up) with rooms surrounding and opening onto inner courtyard and pool areas. No TV or radios but requisite fast free wi-fi...

It’s interesting, this concept of “luxury”. We stayed at Sparrows Lodge and then at a chain “luxury” hotel in a different city the next night as we were traveling. Yes, Sparrows Lodge didn’t have marble countertops in the bathroom or an over-the-top bed with a hundred pillows. Or valet parking or big poofy bathrobes or humongous breakfast buffet. It didn’t...

We booked the Sparrows Lodge for Thanksgiving weekend. We arrived late on our first night so didn't get to see the whole property but loved the Tahoe lodge feel of the room. The next day we enjoyed the basic complementary breakfast while we took in the property. Very cool. We really enjoyed the vibe of this hotel -- super relaxed...

So my boyfriend works in Yucca Valley and we live in Orange County. He's always complaining about how long the commute to and from work is, so as a surprise I began looking for a hotel we could stay at the night before his shift started so that we would be near by and he wouldn't have to worry about...

This charming, rustic lodge is the perfect place to stay after a long day of hiking. The rooms are so unique and we loved the relaxing horse trough soaking tubs. We had a garden room towards the very back that had its own lovely patio. The pool, hot tub, fire pit and gardens are all immaculate. We enjoyed every minute...

My husband and I visited Sparrows Lodge to celebrate our anniversary. It came highly recommended by a friend but exceeded all expectations. The property was magical, room perfect and service incredible. Upon check-in we realized there was a slight goof in our reservation. They upgraded us to a gorgeous suite and comped us 2 of the most adorable truckers hats....

We didn't stay at Sparrow's lodge. We were told about their great food so we went there for a lazy Sunday lunch. We ended up staying for hours as it was delightfully comfortable in their courtyard! The menu was limited but everything we tried ( mainly cob salads and burgers were great)and reasonably priced) . We shared a couple of...

This is a charming and secluded lunch stop with dinners 2 days a week as well. The food, service, and location was out of the world. The burgers was hands down best ever! I've not stayed in the rooms but I peeked into one and they looked warm & roomy. It's very plain from the street and a little easy...

Lovely place, great setting, nice rooms friendly staff. I had a room in the garden at the back. Beware it can be very noisy especially when dinner is served. I was woken at 2am by guests sitting in the garden. Beware do not buy water from the bar, I purchased 2 bottles and was charged $22.00 (2.50 retail)

Wonderful stay. Israel, Ashley, and Levi made us feel so welcome. The Wednesday night dinner was amazing. Room and grounds were immaculate. The included breakfast was a nice surprise. Sparrows Lodge is an oasis of calm and peace in the middle of Palm Springs!
