We stayed at Hotel California for the 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival. What a warm and welcoming staff! Lovely spanish revival style hotel. Very comfortable bed, spotless rooms, lots of amenities, kitchenette in our room plus a communal kitchen stocked with all the basics and a communal lounge. Lots of free DVDs to view. The inviting pool is heated to 90 as well as a jacuzzi. We give this hotel our highest recommendation. Excellent value. We will definitely return next year with Sis and bro-in-law from the UK. A delightful extended family owns and operates this hotel. They are lots of fun and very accomodating. They also own The Desert Riviera a mid- century modern hotel just down the block which looks spotless and comfy. Great 50's era decorating! We may try this hotel next time since my sis loves this era of architecture.
The family is originally from Portland Oregon, but they have "Southern Hospitality" down pat!

Room Tip: We loved Elmer's Restaurant nearby. You can use their bikes...no charge. We will bring our helmets next time. No young kids which keeps it peaceful.

Fun time at a great place. Larry and his daughter Lucy made us feel like family. We now count them amoung our friends, They were also very helpful in planning our daily excursions and made excellent restaurant recommendations. They provided us complimentary ice chest and binoculars for our trip to Joshua Tree National Park. We highly recommend this for your next trip to Palm Springs! We certainly will stay with them again......Reed & Laurel

Room Tip: complementary bicycles, golf clubs, tennis rackets, berverages and snacks

Our second stay at the Hotel California and our third stay at Larry and Patty's properties (we stayed at the Desert Riviera). Nice rooms and great service. The rooms are nice, the property very pretty, but it is the service that you go for. Both of their properties are operated to the highest level. We are 100% comfortable here and know that we will be taken care of.

Evenings around the fire pit with guests from around the world can't be beat. This is what a good vacation is all about. We met a very nice couple from Australia and others from England and Canada. Larry, Lucy, Jay, and Mike are there to take care of you and they do it extremely well.

We can't recommend this hotel enough. We will be back soon.

Thanks to the Hotel California crew!!!!!!

We spent 4 days and nights at Hotel California and it was everything we hoped it would be. The room, shared kitchen and lounge, and grounds were clean, fresh, and pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a perfect vacation for us. Thank you for making it so nice!

Room Tip: The room upstairs had a view and was very quiet.

We read tripadvisor reviews and we made a reservation through Internet. Gentle and prompt reply. This small hotel offers you a family environment with heathed pool (in season), bikes, snacks, 24h kitchen, free phone calls and everything you may need. We are very happy of our choice that we will make again if we may return in PS.
