This is our fourth visit to Lido Palms, and it is still as great as it was the first three visits. Rod and Rosa are friendly and helpful, and they keep everything spotless. It was quite windy when we were there, and Rod was out cleaning up the downed palm debris as soon as it was starting to get light...

This is an older property that is most likely in line for a freshening up, but let me tell you, my husband and I were very happy with our stay. We love having an apartment-like accommodation so we can breakfast in-room and fix lunches for our exploring - which we did at Joshua Tree. Having our own fully-equipped kitchen was...

We were searching for a major change of scenery when we found Lido Palms Resort and Spa. Having experienced Hot Springs in Colorado we were anxious to have an opportunity in Southern California. It was a really nice experience. Although the weather was less than ideal, the hot mineral Springs Pool were a wonderful oasis. We especially enjoyed that it...

Loved our stay at the Lido Palms Resort. We were looking for a simple place without all the frills. The Lido met our expectations perfectly. The owner was welcoming and helpful. The room and property were clean and well kept. Our room had a kitchen and plates and pots but no pans for cooking in the oven. When I wanted...

The kind owner of Lido Palms responded to our need to charge our car by directing his electrician to install a NEMA 14-50 amp outlet during our latest stay November 5-20, 2016. Now we can top off our EV at 230V, 20 amps at night, while we sleep! This motivated us even more to return, so we have booked another...

We especially loved the heated mineral pools and certainly made the most of them! The rooms were spacious, with well equipped kitchen and large comfortable bed. The air conditioning was noisy but necessary. Even if you turned off yours, you could still hear next door's! We would definitely recommend and would visit again if in the area.

Only 10 units, but very nice. Clean, and secure. Therapeutic beds were very comfortable. Full kitchen was wonderful. We cooked dinner and breakfast in it. Pretty view of large cactus outside kitchen window. Front window view of mineral springs pool and hot tub. Very relaxing. Would recommend. I called police station to check out the area before we came, as...

You might end up there accidentally, because the place you were supposed to stay made a mistake. When you see the sign that says Lido P s, you may imagine that you are on a low budget cross-country trip. If Rosemary greets you, she might remind of your friend's nice mom, if you stopped by her house on your low-budget...

We really enjoyed staying at the Lido Palms! Perfect place to relax and take a dip in their amazing mineral springs pool and hot tub! It was so peaceful and calming. We highly recommend staying at this boutique hotel. The owners are very helpful and kind as well.

It was a spur of the moment decision to stay in Desert Hot Springs for the first time. Lido Palms and the small desert town experience were a pleasant surprise. Nothing fancy about the hotel or the town. Dated and not modern. But the hotel was clean, cozy, quiet and comfortable at a very reasonable price. With a small kitchen...
