We showed up to check in and were greeted by Larry (the owner) with a smiling face and chipper disposition. There was a slight mishap with our booking, and luckily there were a few rooms still available. While in the lobby, Larry poured us some California wine and upgraded us to the suite because of the booking error. During our... More

I was on my way home to Az following the passing of my son. Unable to locate the motel for which I had made reservations I took a chance and entered the entrance of Hotel California seeking directions. Tired and weary they told us where to go, but advised us that this particular motel was less than desirable. I asked... More

Wow, what an amazing place. It's luck staying with family. The staff are so friendly you feel like you've known them years. By far the best place we've stayed this west coast tour. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Lovely rooms, free parking,coffee on tap. Etc etc. We will be back next time we're over here. Thank... More

While I have been to Palm Springs several times before and stayed at many of the local hotels, after staying at the Hotel California I will never stay elsewhere in Palm Springs. The hotel is beautiful! Street facing very desert-style terra... More

Honestly, I cannot fault Hotel California. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, that our first impressions were lasting. We had the townshouse suite and it was perfect. Having the kitchen really made a difference, with everything there in order to cook up a storm (thanks Wholefoods Market Palm Desert). The pool was perfect, as was the spa. The lounge... More

We love this hotel, the staff and the setting. The view of the mountains is spectacular. The spa and pool are fantastic. There are beautiful fountains, hummingbird feeders, manicured gardens and planters. Every walkway, corner of the hotel grounds and the sidewalks are beautifully taken care of, it is paradise. The common kitchen and bar-b-que area are very convenient, the... More
