The rooms are well appointed huge bed and a useful bar area with all you could wish for (except a coffee maker).The pool was warm, and not too crowded, food and drinks were excellent.Room service allowed...

The Ace Hotel offered a unique room experience with an outdoor camping theme. The rooms were the Cozy and the beds are unbelievably comfortable. We had a private patio off of our room that was fun for visiting with friends and playing games out on. The hotel is a short drive to downtown where all the shopping is. Staff is... More

Stayed at the Ace for three days. Always like staying here. Staff was very friendly and food was very good. But it is a little tired. Things are starting to look a little frayed and worn. Hot pool has cracks and chips all over. Bathroom had mold in shower. Door mat was curled and beat. Chair on patio was missing... More

Overall the vibe at this hotel is great. The reception staff are super nice, waiting staff round the pool super attentive and food absolutely excellent overall. The rooms are really cute and work well for the desert backdrop. We are really into music and felt the speakers round the pool when there was no DJ there quite tinny which was... More

Hey whisper - A few weeks ago an overzealous DJ blasted the music and blew out every one of our brand new speakers. That tinny sound is the result. A repair is in the works. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back. Tim A. tim.anctil@acehotel.com More

I'm sure this hotel is just fine for many....just not for me (I'm not a hipster, and don't aspire to be one) I booked this hotel, as it was the "host hotel" for an event I attended.The room door lock, or door, needs to be adjusted....you shouldn't have to body check the door to open it.

Hi dogsnkid - Hi dogsnkid - I am in full agreement with you on our guest rooms doors. When we renovate the hotel in Spring 2017, all doors and closure hardware will be replaced and we will be updating our lock technology at the same time. Additionally, I am pushing our design on the dark shade so sleeping in is... More

Really cool hotel. Dog Friendly, great food, drinks, and fun. Like an adult summer camp. Mid-century-Palm Springs vibe. The rooms have great amenities-comfortable beds, good linen, decent flat screen, okay cable, all sorts of snacks, drinks, and sex aids for purchase, small patios, clean, well maintained grounds, beautiful pool and surrounding area. Staff is inconsistent...excellent in the restaurant, day crew... More

Bachelorette gals wanted to do a "pool party" here. The Ace charged $25 for a wristband that allows you entrance at 12p. Get there EARLY to find a chair with sun shade or settle for cushions and a lot of direct sunlight. Vibe was pretty cool with poolside lounge music and great bar service, but for 25 bucks admission make... More

Leigth - We try to have something for everyone and although 8 years ago most of our guests were family-free and single, it's 8 years later and we welcome everyone - even if they have a husband/wife and a few kids in tow. The more the merrier. Thanks for the feedback. Tim A. tim.anctil@acehotel.com More

This hotel makes everything to look cool to their pseudo Hipster customers. But be realistic its just a motel with decent beds. Rooms are ok but at the level of a renovated motel while its pretending to be so much than that. its very expensive for what you get. Everyone in this hotel is so slow, the staff is terrible....

My family stayed at Ace for a much needed getaway and ended up extending our trip because we were having such a great experience. The room was clean and roomy.
