The resort itself is super clean and close to town! I was concerned about the "clothing optional" aspect of it, but found that it was not a big deal. We stayed in the King Suite upstairs that had a great view of the pool and hot tub and a full kitchen. Great for entertaining or for a quiet night in!!

my friend and i rent a room w 2 bed and we got a room w one bed,we will never go back the owner will walk right in to your room not announce bed host would not supply you any basic shampoo shop extra. room dirty
all the time we had to clean are self.Do Yourself a big favor and do no even think about it. The owner will ruin your stay and your vacation - he is the worst hotel host i ever meet in my life - all other guest that were there were complaining about the same issue about the owner.
he will play the nice person for the first day when u checking in - to get you money first and then he will treat you like a garbage , he wont look at you when you ask for something and he will ignore you right in your face - he will not leave daily shampoo and body wash - we booked the room for a week and the floors never been washed - me and my friend did it ourselves.
the sheets never been washed, Wifi never works there i had to pay extra for data on my phone.
i travel once a month all over the wold and i have never experience something like that before.
the owner lives there and will verbally abuse you and will tell you to take your stuff out and leave.
there are so many gay resorts there, it was my first time in PS and now i will know for sure where to go.
BE CARFUL FROM BEARFOOT INN !!!!

Room Tip: i would stay away

We are extremely disappointed when someone feels that their experience at our establishment did not live up to their expectations. The guest was made aware that our Queen Suite was unavailable for the first two nights of their stay. They were offered a refund but decided to take a King Suite instead, and were given the two nights in the King Suite free of charge. When the Queen Suite became available, they informed us that they were comfortable in the King Suite and stayed there... however they asked for yet another free night. As it was the guest's choice to remain in the room, we did not offer a free night. Knowing that our guests demand reliable wireless internet access, we recently upgraded to wide band service, so we can only assume that any issues this guest had with internet access was the result of their device(s), as this did not seem to be an issue with any other guests. We understand that a guest's expectations may be beyond our capabilities but this review is completely inaccurate and we are disappointed that we have to respond in such a manner.

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights mid week and really enjoyed our visit. The location is good, just a few minutes from the main strip in Palm Springs where all the good restaurants and bars are. It's quiet and discreet, but close enough to everything. We had one of the upstairs King rooms which was very spacious, the bathroom and kitchenette were great and the bed was enormous and so comfortable. Towels were provided (pool and bathroom) as well as continental breakfast, wifi and the other facilities you would expect. The pool area is nice, plenty of loungers, nice sun and shade, nice hot tub.

Glenn was very friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

My partner and I just got back from six days at this bear-themed resort and all I can say is that I can't wait to go back. During the week the resort is quiet and relaxing, so if you just want to spend hours bobbing like a cork in the swimming pool, you can certainly do that. Glen (the owner) is the perfect host, unobtrusive but always there if you need him for anything. As the weekend approaches, the resort starts filling up and the atmosphere gets livelier. We met a charming couple from SF that we ended up bonding with, and the other guests were very friendly. The resort is clothing optional, but I would say only 50% of the guests indulged. The rooms are nicely appointed and just the right combination of comfort and class. Some gay resorts can be intimidating, marketed to the washboard ab set, and we did see some guests like that, but truly it was a mix of ages and body types that make it unintimidating (is that a word?) for all. The Bearfoot Inn is a wonderful discovery.

We don't think we could have said it any better. It is our guests who make the atmosphere so relaxing and friendly. With that said, we can't wait to see you again!

We just came back from a six night's stay at the bearfoot and it was so relaxing. The resort was quieter than usual after the Labour Day long weekend but that suited us just fine. Since we were last there, they've added misters over the lounge chairs which was fantastic in 111 degree weather!
We stayed in a king room overlooking the pool which was huge and comfortable. We did some shopping at Trader Joe's and stocked our little kitchen.

Room Tip: Stayed in huge king room #7 with nice view of the pool and jaccuzzi.
