THE GOOD: Camilla, the owner was very nice and accommodating. Provided a raised toilet seat for my joint issues. Property is charming, safe, nicely landscaped. Italian decor. ADULTS ONLY😊. Nice, comfy rooms.w/small kitchen (bring your own dish soap). Great bed, shower/tub, HBO. Ceiling fan, AC. Window wirh screen for nite breeze. Two big robes. Plenty of outlets for charging devices. Great self serve b'fast with lots of choices (but, no meat). Delicious waffle mix. Fancy French press coffee! Wrapped pastries. Juice and yogurt. Cereal, fruit. Auto ice maker and filtered water. Pool/2 Jacuzzis were clean. 24 hour access. Mineral water did not tarnish my silver. Cabana-like areas wirh big lounge couches. Very nice spa area. "Krystina" gave the BEST scrub massage EVER!🌞 THE BAD: Hotel is.located in tbe middle of a rundown neighborhood. Dry brush scrub and shabby landscape. Nowhere to take a pretty walk. Bathroom sink area is tiny. Hardly room for a single person's toiletries let alone more than one person's. WiFi was iffy. Worked in my room but not directly outside of the room. Some areas of property held a signal, others didn't. No restaurant or bar. THE UGLY: Outside of my bedroom window view was of an ugly, vacant lot. Walkway was cluttered with debris from the torn roof. Bulb was "out" outside of my room door (due to an "electrical problem") so no security lighting during my 3 night stay. Loud noise from next door's plumbing (shower and toilet) could be heard every time either was used. After hours entry gate had tacky electrical tape around one of the knobs, rendering it useless. Very unsightly! Outside utility tables next to the lounge chajrs were dirty. Staff did clean them when asked to. Overall, tbe place was not very clean and there was a general rundown, shabby feel. Masonry and plaster inside and outside were "crumbly" and in need of repairs. Perhaps due.to the pandemic it has been difficult to spruce up the property or maintain it properly? Hotel and pool area overlook vacant & desolate neighborhood lots. Mountains in far distance. There is no pretty landscape to view. There is still an old tacky motel sign that hangs over the property. Why is it still there when the current hotel has been around for at least two decades? BOTTOM LINE: Too expensive for the property not to be better maintained! However, the owner is gracious, the beds are comfortable, the food is great and the pools are fantastic.

We just returned from a three night stay at Tuscan Springs Hotel. This is not a big time resort but a family run small hotel and they do not promote themselves as anything but that, so if you are looking for luxury, this is not your spot. If you are looking for small, quiet, and relaxing - read on! This was a first time for us with mineral pools and we really did enjoy the three pools. The temperatures were perfect in each one - the large pool being the coolest and the other two with the jets were hot and hotter. We used all three every day and they are open 24 hours - this is not a party spot and it's adults only, so everyone we encountered at all hours was very quiet and respectful of the "relax mode". I must say these were the cleanest hotel pools I have ever been in. The water is crystal clear and the tile was quite well kept and lovely. The entire pool deck area is full of chairs and loungers and tables and wonderful king size cabana type beds. There is a pleasant view of the mountains, although the telephone wires are there which is a tad bit of a bummer. The wind blows up the hill that this spa is perched on which is most welcome when it's over 100 degrees! There are three main courtyards including the pool area and they are all full of flowers, cactus, and unique decor. The two courtyards by the rooms have fireplaces that we gathered around in the evening and chatted with other guests, bring your own wine and wine glasses and it's truly wonderful. Morning dining can be done in any of the courtyards or taken back to your room. The rooms are nice but not extravagant. The water temp and pressure is very good in the bathroom. The shower/tub was quite nice and had a very good but attractive grab bar if you need it - and is perfect for hanging your wet swimwear on. AC and ceiling fan make it comfortable for sleeping. Wifi was adequate as we both had some work to do. Mini fridge and microwave in each room. TV was cable only - not smart TV. Daily maid service - fresh towels and super plush robes. The end units have large very private patios, that don't have much view, but are perfectly shaded for an afternoon nap. King size beds are comfortable with nice sheets and European style comforter in a duvet. The breakfast was nice - make it yourself waffles, several baked goods (just average grocery store quality), fruits, avocados, tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, cereal, milk, OJ, french press coffee or coffee maker if you prefer. Ice machine and water, along with coffee are available all day and night. We did not use the spa services - but I got envious as people returned to the pool area from their treatments and every single person was raving about it! Overall facility - it's charming, kitschy, unique, and a tad bit run down. I feel like it is so much work to maintain a property like this and the weather of the desert is so hard on everything. Cushions are faded, wood shade covers some need a redo, columns were never painted, fountain is out of water, flower beds need weeding, front door needs a re-staining. But the vision is there and the detail is there, and that is what you see in the big picture. The location is what is it is - many properties in this area are unkempt - it's not Las Vegas strip or Orange County - it's Desert Hot Springs! But really, you walk in the door and you can already feel the stress melting away - soak for a few hours in the pool and you will "get it" - you will know why you are here and you will relax! A short drive into Palm Springs for fine dining and nightlife - you have the best of both worlds.

The motto on top of the door entrance. This is a great gem hiding in Desert hot Springs. We enjoy our stay here for a couple of nights. It was very windy but nevertheless it was still good. Clean accommodations for adults only which was our first without our kids. We enjoyed meeting Cornelio who gave us a summary of his life and how they bought this hotel. His wife (Camelia) runs it and he helps some days, he told us. We love the patios outside the rooms, the spa, and breakfast was simple but good as well. The internet was not working when we were there but this could be due to the high winds. We came to Joshua Tree and it was about 45 mins from the West entrance. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved my 4 night stay and will be back! Yes, it is off the beaten path but everything is only a drive away. Great base for exploring. Pools are open 24 hours which is wonderful. The spa pool was amazing when there were high winds in the desert. Choose the mountain view room for more privacy with the back patio. Good Mexican restaurants in town, just ask around. This was just what I was looking for.

We stayed at Tuscan Hot Springs Resort in March 2021 and used it as a base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and sights around Palm Springs. It was a great choice for us. The exterior is not impressive, but once inside we found a real gem of a boutique hotel. Our room was very comfortable, quiet and well appointed. All rooms are on the ground floor and have easy access to extensive common areas. One large open-air common area has a pool and jacuzzi spa and a second covered spa is located under cover in an adjacent area. Large chaise lounges near the pools are perfectly located for relaxing in the sun or under cover. Our favorite features are two outdoor seating areas with gas fireplaces. We found them perfect for evening drinks while watching sunsets. Finally, the innkeeper is exceptionally friendly, accommodating and cheerful. We will surely book this hotel again for any future visits to this region.
