We flew to Palm Springs last Wednesday, November 13, 2013.
We wanted to chill in the sun and check out the old Inn Exile (now La Joya Inn).
After we rang the front door bell, the new owner came out of the Palm Springs Villas hotel next door.
That is when we learned that the new owner now owns both properties.
The new owner is currently doing a lot of work on the place.
The inn is still set up to be exclusively gay and nude.
It also remains set up for sexual contact, albeit on a much more sedated scale.
The new owner is very courteous and accommodating.
He is not intrusive. He checks in on you, but does not take up your time.
He is European (thus, unimpressed with nudity).
All staff are very quiet and unobtrusive. If a guest enters an area, all junior staff must leave immediately.
That is the kind of service he is offering.
Though still being refurbished (and full amenities are not in place), the new owner is taking La Joya Inn to a higher level than Inn Exile was, which will only make it a more unique experience.
I encourage financial support for this hotel.
