We love this place. I’ve stayed here at least 20 times over the last ten years. The staff is always friendly and makes everyone feel welcome. There’s two pools and awesome cocktails. The Kings Highway restaurant is great for breakfast lunch and dinner. Del Mar restaurant is up the street. They have the tapas and freaking fabulous drinks. Check out Mr. Lyons as well for a special occasion dinner. Also get the patio room with a fire place. Perfect for enjoying a book or stargazing.

First off, the good! The burger you'll have at King's Highway Restaurant is the best burger you'll ever have in your life. Not kidding. Also, they've done a great job at keeping the midcentury Palm Springs vibe of this old HoJo hotel, but updating it (exteriors and interiors) to be very cool and casual, with a nod and a wink to the slight kitsch factor of the midcentury vibe. Even the small single room (king size bed) was spacious enough for one (although I wouldn't say for two). The bad, though... and this was a big factor when I was recently there... the A/C did not work well. And when it's 116 degrees outside, you need a hotel that has reliable, solid A/C. When I got into the room it was 71 degrees but humid and still, and the A/C was set to its lowest point/highest fan - curtains were closed, no heat or light coming in before I arrived - and it was incredibly stuffy. I tried to adjust the A/C but to no avail and the front desk said that the A/C was trying to work extra hard because of the heat, so they sent an engineer up to check it - but he wasn't able to adjust anything. In retrospect, I should've asked for a couple of fans. So sleeping was uncomfortable because it was so warm in the room. This factor alone will keep me from staying there again: in Palm Springs, you need really good A/C. Period. In August when it's 116 degrees outside and still 97 in the middle of the night - like it's always been in Palm Springs since the beginning of time - you need solid A/C. I will say that the A/C worked fine in the restaurant and bar. The hotel did waive the "resort fee" of $40 for the night because of the A/C problem, which was a charge I wasn't familiar with: I booked a room rate of $160 for the night. But it turns out that the room is $160 but then there's a $40 "resort fee" tacked on, so the room rate is actually $200 for the night. It was nice of them to waive that, but I would've rather just had a room that was a little cooler and more comfortable. So it's a neat place, it's cute and kitschy, it's got a great design and a fun vibe to it and 2 pool areas and a killer restaurant - but they really need to upgrade the A/C on site. Just be aware if you're there during the really hot months.

Room Tip: All rooms face outward, so it's always a bit noisy.

I decided to make an overnight trip to PS so stayed here. I’ve been to the Ace in DTLA so was familiar with what they were all about. The PS location was great, it has a cool retro motel thing going on, everyone was cool (from guests all the way to staff), room AC worked awesomely, and I LOVED the free Tesla charging. Food was great, and prices were very fair. One gripe I have, though, is since this is a renovated old motel (with outward facing doors as opposed to doors facing hallways), I could literally hear everything from people chirping their car alarms to people walking by, to people having just normal volume convos outside my door. Needless to say, I didn’t sleep much bc I kept getting woken up. I guess I could have used earplugs but I prefer not to for safety reasons. Other than that, I thought it was a great place, and people were “well mannered” and not all drunk and rowdy. Chill vibes, but I only wish I could’ve gotten some sleep! Lol.

Friendly staff, cool decor everywhere including the room, stocked fridge, 2 pools (1 to party, 1 to chill), Kings Hwy food is amazing, drinks at Amigo are great. Other guests are friendly and into the whole vibe. If you are coming here and thinking of luxury, you will be disappointed. This has the whole California desert vibe down pat.

The hotel was extremely overpriced $250 one night, thought I was going to stay somewhere nice and clean with a great pool. The room had blood stains on the robe, dirty linens, scorching hot shower that didn’t turn colder, lights didn’t work, extremely loud and just all around crappy rooms. This was just hotel that looks amazing on Instagram and Kayak but looks like crap in real life. Don’t stay here. They put us in a new room and didn’t get us a refund.
