Rooms, shared spaces, pool area and cafe were lovely and very clean. The view is spectacular from the pool and in some rooms. Staff were attentive and friendly. Really dug the music at the pool and cafe. Decor and art were very special; not quite kitsch mid-century modern and in very fine taste. European-style continental breakfast hit the spot. The backyard area by the shuffleboard, with bikes, fireplace and couches was also very tasteful and a desirable place to hang out. The hot tub was warm. The pool was the perfect temperature. Both very clean. The location of the property is ideal for bopping around downtown. The guests we met were very pleasant. The service was great. Ice cream cart a sweet touch. Will definitely return.

A lovely property which is in the center of town but which feels far away. The 21+ (no children) crowd helps, as does the lovely property and the attention to detail. A large heated pool, a cute restaurant/bar (you can order lunch and drinks by the pool during the day), good service, thorough housekeeping, and lots of style all contribute to the thumbs up. Rooms are categorized as "good", "better" and "best"; we chose a "best" room, which was very spacious, had a separate tub & shower, a dining nook (with fridge) and a spacious well-furnished balcony overlooking the pool area. Three of our four small notes had to do with the room: the lighting (which was pretty dark even at max - probably only an issue in winter), the lack of any drawers or shelves which was especially a problem as we were staying for 7 nights (this did not seem to be an issue in other rooms) and the lack of a safe. We made it work with extra hangers for the wardrobe. We do think that your room assignment will have a lot to do with your enjoyment here so do the research. An "honor system" ice cream cart next to the pool, a shuffleboard court, free bikes for guest use, and a cute gift-shop/pantry (also honor system) round out the experience. The crowd was mixed during our time: straight, gay, singles, couples. Note that they do not allow floaties or noodles in the pool, and the rooms, pointedly, do not have TV's (which we missed after 7 days, but understand that it does not fit in with the "relaxation" philosophy). Oh and that fourth note: their playlist needs to be a little less 80s-90s am radio pop-rock and a little more chill/jazzy/loungey or current. But that's just an opinion. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Would suggest at least a "better" room - and request the second floor.

Our favorite place to stay in Palm Springs! Holiday House has an awesome vibe, and a great outdoor space with an incredible mountain view. It’s located within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping on Palm Canyon Blvd. the staff is absolutely amazing! Everyone is so friendly, welcoming and attentive, from the front desk staff to the servers at the restaurant and pool, housekeeping staff and management. Kudos to Eric for taking good care of us and the other guests while we where there! It’s clear that these folks love what they do.

A perfectly nice place to stay, but honestly let down a bit by the glowing TripAdvisor reviews. The location is perfect and the hotel grounds are pretty. Nothing exceptional about the rooms and staff compared to other hotels we've been to in PS (La Serena Villas, Dive). Our room had a musty smell and several maintenance issues. Limited pool service unless I just didn't know that servers wouldn't be around to ask for food and drink orders but once in 3 days. Jumping on the resort fee bandwagon is annoying. We got a great rate and it was an excellent value, but when the rates are typically more in line with a number of other nice options in the area, we'll honestly try something different next time.
