We had a great stay as our group took over the entire property. All the rooms set up in a large rectangle. All of the rooms opened up to a spacious courtyard, with pool and dining area all pretty much equal distance from all rooms. We had room 10 that had a very nice private back yard. Staff was very...

This is a perfect size, quaint hotel. The grounds were beautiful. We spent many hours in the pool and spa as they were so clear and inviting. The misters around the covered outdoor gathering area really helped. Great attention to detail. Pretty little individual patio yards and doors dividing bathroom from either the living room or bedroom. Michael was wonderful,...

A Place In the Sun hotel was a perfect spot for our family reunion! It’s a lovely, well-maintained small hotel with spacious rooms and beautifully maintained landscaping, and it’s located close to downtown Palm Springs. It’s not a modern luxury hotel; it reminds me of the cool little desert hotels that I loved and remember from visits to Palm Springs...

I'm going to write about renting pretty much the whole place for a family reunion, because that's what we did. We loved it. Each couple / family could choose their room, which all had at least a kitchenette. Ours was one of the smallest (since we're a couple with no kids), and it had 2 burners, a mini-fridge, and a...

This hotel has it all the 1 bedroom villas are so cute. staff is so nice and accommodating will be back. This hotel is very close to downtown but not to close to the hustle and bustle. You will love the grounds the pool is perfect temperature and you can bring your pet for a small fee. That's a bonus.

Extremely pet friendly. That's always a bonus for me. In fact, many guests have their pets around the pool with them (on leash). If you don't like dogs, you may want to consider another option. It was a great way to get to know your neighbors . We were there for the holiday weekend, so they were very busy. People...

A repeat visit for us - this time a girls weekend away and it was lovely! The weather was hot (but we knew that going in!), and the pool and misters made a perfect weekend in the sun. The staff was super friendly and accommodating - since one of our party had an important business call right after check-out, she...

You two are so great. Thank you, Bill and Dona, for your wonderful review. I miss working the front desk sometimes, just because I don't get to see your smiling faces as often. Love you both, and hope to greet you personally next time! /Norma
