We hoped for something else than a usual hotel when we booked our short stay in Palm Springs. But what we experienced was something unexpected. A terrific ambience combined with the warm and generous hospitality from Bill and his crew made us feel at home from the first moment. We highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Palm Springs!

It had been six years since we last visited Palm Springs and we’d never stayed at the Orbit In before but from the moment we walked through the door (and being greeted by Lindsay is a pretty good start), we knew we’d chosen the right place. It’s a relatively small B&B with only 9 suites lovingly kept in the original... More

Great getaway themed boutique hotel! Friendly Staff, awesome period detail. Only 9 rooms so very nice manageable amount of guests. Secluded, but awesome view of the mountains. Cool Orbitinis a drink served poolside at 5:00pm. Very enjoyable we will be back!

Our stay at the Orbit In was fantastic. The staff are super friendly - even contacting us personally when we left an item behind. The setting is brilliant. Really enjoyed all the free goodies provided as well, especially the Orbitinis.

Orbit Inn is the ultimate Palm Springs experience. Breathtaking views, cool mid-century accommodations, and the best location in town. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. We live in Chicago but dream of living in Palm Springs at the Orbit Inn.

We love this hotel as an alternative to the big resorts. It is small, intimate, has a nice, never crowded pool, and is impeccably styled to honor its mid-century beginnings. We have stayed before and will again!

This summer, I spent three days in Palm Springs with my daughters and I chose Orbit In for its cosy vibes, its location and its mid-century architecture. I've not been disappointed: warm welcome of the host, authenticity of the place, fabulous suite, nice collection of vinyls which strenghtens the vintage spirit of this magical hotel with a terrific swimming pool,...

This is one of my favorite places on the planet. The owners couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The mid century style is awesome. The happy hour at the poolside boomerang bar with the other guests was always fun. My room was spotless. My pink bathroom made me feel like I was home! It is within walking distance of everywhere...
