Very cool motel! Very clean rooms (even base boards were clean!), comfortable bed, friendly, attentive staff and large clean pool. Well appointed tiki landscaping. A bit old but by no means neglected; obvious well maintained property. Will be back.

Room is spacious. Linens nice. Clean. Best of all, no adult channels!!! Hotel and restaurant staff really friendly. Food tasty, though took a while. Heidi was very sweet and helpful. Front desk clerk super. Quinceañera there, kids running stairs til 10:30, but very nice folks.

Staff was friendly, room was clean, & pool was stunning. We loved having drinks in the hot tub & lounging by the pool with the great mountain views, surrounded by palm trees, tiki torches, flowers & statues. There was a delicious Mexican restaurant just down the street. Maid service was excellent & the room was always clean, they even cleaned...

We came down to PS for a quick overnight so we didn't spend a lot of time on the property but, wow, is it lovely! The new owners have done a great job renovating the rooms and restoring the original mid-century tiki awesomeness. The lobby is just gorgeous and Jose made check-in fast and easy. Our room was updated, clean,...

I stayed here for night as my husband and I needed somewhere to stay after exploring Joshua Tree for the day. This hotel is truly a tiki lovers delight. So if you're into tiki it will be easy to look past the renovations needed to the hotel. The rooms are definitely no frills in amenities and yes the carpet in...

great pool/spa, tiki drinks, older "motel" type rooms but comfy and set up around the pool area. Prices are reasonable with dining in walking distance. The hotel has a 50's tiki Polynesian décor, could use a little work, paint , but not a issue... cool place

Stayed 4 nights in this motel style hotel on a room only basis. Clean room and bathroom although the bathroom was small and would benefit from redecorating, very comfortable bed, very helpful and courteous staff both at reception and in the bar. There was a nice pool area with a reasonable size pool and a jacuzzi and plenty of shade...
