We just spent a week there, again. Hadn’t changed a bit from last year. Still a wonderful choice. Only 10 comfortably appointed rooms, and multiple amenities in this adults only small hotel. Beautiful, manicured grounds. It is the perfect enclave for a Palm Springs vacation! But

We read all the good reviews but still were skeptical. We normally stay at a big hotel. Here, the service was grand, it’s quite intimate and the pool. Oh. The pool. 92 degrees of fabulosity. The service is wonderful and they think of your every need. Room was good size.

Hi, Ginger. Although we do love our doggies friends, we have a No pet policy and would not be able to accommodate a dog. Our Queen studio does have a kitchenette but no stove in the room. However, we do have a communal kitchen with a stove top and a outdoor BBQ and pizza oven to bake anything that is open to you 24 hours. I hope this helps! Cheers! -Misty
