I stayed at the Orbit In in early October 2013. Jade and the staff were super friendly, welcoming and helpful in demonstrating the property/amenities and answering any questions. (They have lots of great PS recommendations.) The location is fabulous and peaceful, the room (Cha Cha) was spotless and comfy and there were many unexpected 'extras' which made my stay even better - cocktail hour at the Boomerang Bar, cold drinks and a bucket of sunscreen available poolside, cozy robes in the rooms, great reading material available as well as awesome turntables and a wide selection of movies and music available to guests. The retro vibe was fantastic and the owners/staff seem to put a lot of thought and effort into providing their guests with the best possible experience. I could have stayed a month! Loved this place and will definitely be back.

This is a throw back to the 50's style Hotel. Small so it's personable very quiet only 9 units so it fills up fast. It was our 1st visti and I have call a lot of my friends and told them about it. Takes you back to a time when things were good. Kevin and Jiny make you feel like family. If you want a vacation spot to get away from it all this is the place. We have already booked for next just to secure a room. You can't go wrong with this place. I highly recommend it to everyone.

We had a wonderful time at the Orbit In. As another reviewer noted, this is more of an experience than just a place to stay. There are only 9 rooms and so there is opportunity to get to know the other guests if you wish. On the other hand, there is no pressure to socialize if you don't feel like it. We stayed in the Leopard Lounge which was v. spacious. All the rooms are done in a different retro style, such as The Atomic Room, The Bossa Nova, etc.

The location is top-notch, in a quiet, safe neighborhood within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. The Orbit In provides an excellent list of recommended restaurants which we used.

The amenities, from an outdoor refrigerator stocked with soft drinks to a basket of sunblocks, are extensive. The cocktail hour from 5-6 pm. features wine and their signature drink the Orbitini (cranberry juice, orange juice and sake) The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful.

The only change I might make on a return visit would be to book a room with a private terrace with more of a mountain view. Our terrace was a bit claustrophobic.

We wanted to be able to walk to the shops and restaurants in downtown Palm Springs on an October afternoon and enjoy VillageFest that night with a B&B hotel as our base. Orbit In made it happen in style. Their staff was incredibly attentive and the facility was first-rate. Loved the refrigerator and ice maker by the pool! We stayed in a small room (Cha Cha) but it had a small enclosed patio of its own that made us feel like we owned the whole place. The modernistic room furnishings were cool and the carpet was squeaky clean. It was fun to borrow a vinyl record album and spin the turntable in our room, too. Breakfast offered a good variety of continental choices for such a small facility. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Don't be dissuaded by Cha Cha's small "living space." It's a great buy and at lunchtime your patio is in the shade, making it a great place to chill before you venture out again.

The Orbit In is beyond a 5 star hotel, it's a 5 star experience. The owners and managers care about this hotel and it shows. They care about their guests and it shows.They love their city and it shows!

Every year I enjoy meeting the other guests. Some like to keep to themselves and seem quite comfortable while the rest of us share stories and swap suggestions for dining and sightseeing. This year we had such a wonderful group, one would think we'd known each other for years. For a few days, we become neighbors and friends. Things like this make a hotel more than just a place.

For more details, see my last three years of reviews.
