“Charming, peaceful and very accommodating!”
Reviewed February 7, 2011

Our stay here at the hotel was wonderful from the time we arrived to the time we said our good-byes. Gary was very accomodating to our needs. We stayed in th handicap accessible room which was spacious and suited our needs. The grounds are beautiful and the renovations look great. The hotel is gated and locked at night, so you are given a room key and a gate key. We felt very secure and safe. The pool area is nice with several tables and chairs and plenty of towels. At night candles illuminate the area creating a wonderful ambiance. We met the owners, Patty and Larry, and as with Gary, very pleasant and friendly. Parking is conveniently located on the property. Overall, we had a wonderful experience here. A couple of minor things to mention on the con side are the size of the pool (not really big enough to swim laps) and no fitness room. Also, a computer room will be added soon. If we are ever back in Palm Springs, we will return to Hotel California. You should check it out!

My husband and I stayed at the newly renovated Hotel California 4 nights and couldn't have been more pleased. The hotel is undergoing a complete renovation by the new owners, Larry and Patty Stearns. The courtyard, with all new landscaping, is so cozy and charming. There is the most beautiful rubber tree that wraps around the courtyard which gives the entire space an intimate feel. The hotel is small and has a very casual, warm and friendly atmosphere. The owners take the time to meet all their customers and are happy to give advice about things to do and restaurants in the area. We highly recommend Hotel California!
