My partner and I always spend Memorial Day weekend in Palm Springs, however this year we were not able to get a room at our usual resort. Even though I was booking a couple of months in advance everything was already booked up, but I was able to find a room at the Bearfoot Inn. We had been wanting to... More

Please carefully read all the one star reviews before choosing to stay here. Really disappointed in so many things about this "resort". If you read the Yelp!review left by CS of Seattle in the fall of 2015 it is almost verbatim what I want to write. We too stayed in Room 11 or as the owner referred to it, The... More

This is the first time that my partner and I have stayed at the Bearfoot Inn. We were greeted at the entrance to the property (there is no front desk or check-in area), after ringing the doorbell a couple of times. Someone came to the door and I wasn't sure if they were associated with the Inn or simply a... More

I will start this review with our final experience at the Bearfoot Inn: Telling Glenn the owner/manager as we were leaving that our toilet had backed up and it was mess (we had knocked on his door earlier but he didn't bother to come out) and his response wasn't an apology or checking to see if we had been able...

I chose this place because of the description on its web page and because of its proximity to downtown. The facility has been nicely updated and is well maintained. HOWEVER, my experience there was a total disappointment. One of the two owners, Glen, was on duty (if you can call it that), but if you are looking for even a... More

I stayed here on a 4 night trip to Palm Springs at the suggestion of a friend. It was a great place to hang out and the other guests were friendly and we all enjoyed cocktails poolside daily. I will definitely be back here.

From the moment we walked through the door, we knew this place was just our style. It is quiet and relaxed, with a more mature crowd (only 11 units). It is clean and modern...very masculine and handsome. We enjoyed our owner/hosts (Glenn and Jerry) as well as a few other guests we met. The pool is fantastic as is the... More

Gay men & clothing optional were the attraction for me. Great mid-century architecture. Only 11 rooms of varying size and accommodation. Rooms centered around courtyard with great pool and hot tub with plenty of lounge chairs & tables with umbrellas. Intimate setting so you can get to socialize all the other guests, Serve yourself continental breakfast with coffee, juice, cereal,... More

Stopped here randomly at the end of a trip to California, I was impressed by how clean, warm, and friendly everyone was. The only downside was the motion sensor bathroom lighting. No one needs it that bright at 3 AM.

Rooms are MUCH smaller than they appear in photos, the bed was horrible. The linens old and threadbare. Stingy towels. Internet worked fine, the owner is a sourpuss, no refunds if you pay ahead. I suggest you look before you leap into this place! I liked the note the owner put on the honor bar at the pool, "Honor bar... More
