Awesome facilities, awesome hosts. Fantastic attention to detail. Only 11 rooms makes this a great boutique hotel. Beautifully remodeled, great landscaping and night lighting. The tiled pool shows the owners attention to detail. The use of the club house facilities, including the full kitchen is a real treat. Will definitely stay there again!

A charming and private lodge, beautifully landscaped, spacious and modern rooms, heated pool and close to downtown. Friendly hosts and staff. They have all the amenities and a shared kitchen for light breakfasts. A separated Bar-b-que area. I also saw a few bicycles available for use. Definitely will be back! S & S.

The rooms are beautiful and large. They have sleep number beds!! The pool area is large has many beautiful accent pieces including a large sculpture. There is a club house that has breakfast in the morning. It's a great location because it's near downtown.

Was looking for a less expensive but nice place to stay for a dance event. What a great find! This boutique hotel has undergone extensive renovations and has charming rooms and delightful "secret garden" common areas. Our room (Room 4) was small but tastefully decorated, however, the shower was miniscule. Good choices for the continental breakfast. Location is convenient. Spa...

Had a great four night stay at Colt's Lodge. Grounds are beautifully landscaped, with a warm and inviting pool and whirlpool. There is also a bocce ball court and barbecue area. With a reservation mix up (NOT Colt's Lodge's fault!) they handled the situation with grace and professional and we were given a lovely upgrade to their suite and a...

We stayed 4 nights in this recently totally renovated 11 room inn. Rooms are great, with fridge and microwave (and large supermarket 2 blocks away), comfortable bed, nice bathroom. There is a common veranda sitting area in front of all the rooms and a small private patio in back of each room. The grounds are very nicely landscaped and the...

No waiting for an elevator, no long walk down the hall to your room. Just a few steps to everything. We have stayed in a lot of fine hotels but a have to rate this unique lodge as a topper. Great staff.

We just spent some time at Colt's Lodge and we are knocked out on the experience we had there. They have everything that you need, and everything that you might want for your stay, too. What really impressed me was the attention to detail. The rooms have all of the modern conveniences. Sleep number beds, USB charging ports in the...

This hotel was terrific. Everything was renovated and all was very comfortable. The breakfast included coffee & juice & fresh fruits & yogurts & bagels & pastries. The grounds are lovely. The pool and lounges and hot tub were wonderful. The hotel is on the free Thur-Sun bus line which was perfect. We drove to Joshua Tree Natl Park for...
