This hotel is the greatest! From the moment I walked through the gates into the beautiful courtyard I felt my tension slip away. I was instantly greeted by a warm smile and an icy cold bottle of water. Betty is caring, friendly and helpful. Larry and Jay kept kept me laughing...and on my toes! The hotel feels like home from...

It has taken me four months to get around to write about what an amazing stay I had at Hotel California, but as I start to think about my next visit, I figure it's about time I shared my experience from March of this year. I was down during the PNB Paribas Open at Indian Wells, and stayed nearly two... More

We really enjoyed the spacious suite, comfy couch, bed, and all the comforts of home. The surprise of walking into the community kitchen and seeing hot dogs and all the extras on 4th of July was really nice, and we were kind of hungry between meals, so extra nice. The bikes came in handy for the local market. The pool... More

I came here on a desperately needed getaway for a few days back in March. The energy, vibe, & environment are very laid back & soothing. The hosts are super welcoming, accommodating & very passionate about both the property & area...and they even remember your name! All the little touches (snack basket, candles in the evening on the patios, etc)... More

If you are looking for a place to chill out, relax and unwind, this is it. No kids, no pets, quiet after 9:00. Only 14 units, nice pool, misters, friendly staff. Their website contains all the information you need. The minute you arrive, you get the full tour...separate smoking area so that non-smokers aren't bothered but smokers have a place... More

My wife and I love everything about Hotel California. We try to make a visit there every year. Hotel California offers excellent hospitality, beautiful garden landscaping and it's the perfect boutique size! If you're going to Palm Springs and looking for the perfect couple getaway, this place is a must. -Chuck & Jena

Me and my wife stayed here while celebrating our anniversary. What a wonderful experience! The hotel staff is amazing. They really go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable, and you really feel they are doing it because they sincerely care about your experience. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic getaway.

Great place to totally relax around the pool, enjoy a movie or a book from the library, bbq with great people you meet around the pool. We barely had a reason... More

This quaint, comfy boutique hotel is just what a retreat should be: private but friendly, fun-loving and with great service. Our room (rm 1) was super and huge.....with a living room and two bathrooms. We loved walking over for fresh coffee in the morning instead of having to drive somewhere. Our thanks to Larry and Jay for making us laugh... More
