Great place to stay for one night, or a whole season. This former hotel has been converted into individually owned condo units. There is a renewed interest in the OL and many units are being bought as vacation rentals. The unit we stayed in, 308 was just renovated. With its mid century style and modern amenities it was a great... More

I had a great experience at Ocotillo Lodge, as I researched, looked at condo photos, read reviews and talked with the owner prior to booking my condo. As in any type of individually owned rentals, if you do the normal above items there should never be a surprise when you arrive...as some reviews here seem to suggest they did not... More

As each unit is individually owned, it is best to check out what you rent. There are some great suites here that are well cared for and have great reviews on vacation rental sites. More

Every unit is different, and the ones I saw were all dated and dingy, but that's what you get with a condo complex that rents out to vacationers. Our one bedroom unit felt overly lived-in and was decorated in grandma style. Will not return or recommend.

January 2016--- The Ocotillo Lodge is a fantastic complex of mid-century modern vacation condos, designed by famed PS architects Palmer & Krisel, that are approximately 500-600 square-feet in size, with Large outdoor patios and are individually owned. In its heyday, the dazzling structure's sweeping curved dining room was dressed to the nines, resting above the immense keyhole-shaped swimming pool while... More

First off this place has some really great history behind it. I'm not going to go to deep into it, but the likes of Lucille Ball, Gene Autry, Marilyn Monroe and JFK, just to name a few, have stayed here over the years. #1 The number one attraction of the Ocotillo lodge for me, and I'm sure many of my...

Let me start by saying that this review is from a particular rental unit. My issues were entirely with the bungalow itself and not the grounds. The grounds are well kept and the pool in nice and large. Nothing fancy just a nice pool with a great mountain view. I rented my bungalow from 'Sun and Fun Vacation Rentals'. The... More

I have stayed at the Ocotillo Lodge numerous times. The complex has continued to be upgraded, and individual owner suites are as well. The unit I have stayed at is clean, comfortable, and well supplied. I would recommend this particular unit to anyone. New beds, updated kitchen and bath....great!

We have rented from 2 different owners for the last 7 years, going back to 2006. Although the Octillo is old, going back to the late 40's, that, to us, is what so appealing. Both of our units were clean with the last one having work done on it while we were gone. The pool was great, the location was... More
