Vic and Brian are wonderful hosts. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Breakfast is perfect, and availability of water/juice and fruit throughout day is added bonus. Beds are very comfortable, and the facility is quiet at night for a great sleep. Place attracts nice guests. Landscaping on property is wonderful....very lush and tropical. Easy walking...

The hosts Brain and Vick work hard to ensure your stay is a good one. The grounds are immaculately kept with even allowing dogs. My dog enjoyed having a run behind the room to hang out. The room was clean, comfortable and the bed big enough for both myself and my deerhound, who enjoyed lounging by the pool with me....

Casa Ocotillo is such a beautiful and luxurious place to retreat ... my husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend there with our two dogs. Although there are many places in Palm Springs now that allow dogs, there are no places more exquisite or more welcoming of canine companions than Casa Ocotillo. We've stayed at Casa Ocotillo many times...

My husband, myself, and our dog felt at home by our wonderful hosts, Brian and Vic, the moment we arrived. The rooms are clean, beautiful, and quiet. It is very difficult to find a place that even allows dogs, but Casa Ocotillo is very dog friendly. The location is close enough to downtown for easy access, but far enough away...

Brian and Vic are the BEST. We love staying at the "hacienda." Always stay in the Grand Suite with our dogs who are made to feel so welcome. Outside living at its best! We love the patio, the pool, the hot tub, and the company. Nothing like waking up to fresh-brewed coffee, AMAZINGLY fresh fruit, and a bagel. No reason...

Another exceptional stay at Casa Ocotillo. The bungalow was uniquely decorated {as all of them are, no cookie cutter, corporate decor here).This is truly one of the best places ever to stay with a dog. There are patios and courtyards and dog runs so you can easily keep track of a pup or two. It's also great to have gated...

We loved the beautiful grounds and the pool is one of the best in Palm Springs. Quiet with incredible vistas of the mountains. Each room is like a private suite and the amenities are all updated and modern. Best part: cocktail hour by the pool!
