“No Manor or miracle”
Reviewed April 7, 2007

On a recent trip to southern California, I stayed at the Miracle Manor in Desert Hot Springs. I have been to the town several times before but this was my first stay at this property. Like most places in the area it is a 50's style motel with a natural hot mineral water pool. There were several downsides to my stay; the price was slightly higher than what i usually pay at superior places, so i wasn't happy with the inferior accommodations. The room was very warm (the days were in the 90's) and there was no air-conditioning, the very thin window coverings did little to block out the lights outside my room that remained on all night making it difficult to fall asleep. The property seems to be going thru a renovation, when i asked about that i was told it was a continual process. The place seemed abit shabby. Walls were being painted and a strange contraption was built over part of the pool as an enclosure, not very scenic. Breakfast is included with the room, but that too was a disappointment, stale breads, cereal, yogurt, and a few pieces of fresh fruit were on offer. The rooms were furnished with cheap pieces of retro-style furniture, and the towels and sheets were from Kmart and seemed worn.

This is like a motel in the 1950's, with chairs outside your door, simple furniture and pink and green towels. Some rooms have kitchenettes. We loved soaking for hours in the hot pool. We also spent a day at the nearby Two Bunch Palm spa, which was super posh and had wonderful treatments available, but it would have been way more expensive to stay there.

We decided to spend a weekend at the Miracle Manor after Sunset Magazine named it in their "Best of the West" issue. I will certainly be questioning Sunset's reviews from now on. It described the Miracle Manor as a hotel with mid-century "lux" decor. Maybe if you consider IKEA lux (nothing against IKEA--I love it--but lux it is not). Fine, the place is casual and low-key. Unfortunately, it is also dirty and delapidated yet still charges fairly high rates. We got massages from a surly masseuse who ended up charging us $90 more than we were quoted. The people who work there seem to be playing at running an inn. Very disappointing.
