The hotel was fine but our ebikes were stolen from the property. I called before coming and the manager encouraged my wife and I to bring our ebikes. When we arrived we were told to park them in a locked courtyard next to the office and that they would be safe there. They were stolen 2 nights later. The hotel now claims that they are not responsible for the theft and that we never should have parked them in the courtyard. The experience totally soured us on the hotel. We had no bikes for the rest of our vacation and we didn't even get an apology.

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel California several times and are always greeted like family with warmth and graciousness. The wine or beer offering upon arrival is also always much appreciated! Hosts check you in and personally escort you to your room poolside, on an upper level or in a more hidden nook -- your preference upon reserving. We love the hot tub and heated pool and often just spend our days lounging there, reading, taking another dip or two and totally unwinding. Rooms are comfortable and clean, quiet location, attentive service, bikes there to ride, walkable to restaurants and town center. There is also a lovely open kitchen for guests to use, with snacks and fruit always available. Next to that area is a separate TV, reading, video lending library, computer, comfy chairs, etc. Lots of outdoor seating in different areas so there is always some privacy if you are looking for it. What's not to like? This is not a big, loud, fancy resort, which we are not into. We just want a small,clean, intimate yet inviting oasis in the desert to call our own when we visit Palm Springs and Hotel California has become that place for us. Highly recommend.

This place is AMAZING. The architecture and grounds makes for a peaceful, tranquil getaway for the spirit and body. There were so many lovely touches by the staff and the amenities included were appreciated. It was my friend's birthday and they had chilled champagne and snacks waiting for us! Each room had it's own private area with table and chairs as well if you didn't feel like mingling. The beds were so comfortable and the room was nicely appointed. They offer bikes and games and movies, snacks, drinks, fresh popped popcorn in the afternoon... I booked another stay before I left! Great vibe of folks all there to chill and revive in this beautiful hideaway :) Adults only, 14 rooms. It's the perfect place to escape and relax comfortably and peacefully after COVID.

This was our 3rd stay at the Hotel California and it was excellent as always. The staff are always willing to go above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. Staff and guests alike are happy and fun and there's never a hassle. Pool area and hot tub are open 24 hrs, but being an adult only hotel it's never loud or disturbing. We will definitely be back

I just returned from my stay at Hotel California. The staff is wonderful. Hospitality is great. The resort has a very cozy feel with just 17 rooms. I especially enjoyed the bicycles and swimming and laying around the pool. I Looking forward to going back there.
