A Place in the Sun is absolutely beautiful! The rooms have been nicely rehabbed with a perfect blend of vintage and modern. There is still some visible wear and tear, but nothing to cry about. The room was clean, beds were comfy, and the breakfast spread was amazing! The garden courtyard is spectacular, and the hot tub was fabulous after...

This is a hidden gem! From the beginning working with Michael to get the right rooms to the end and checking out with him it was perfect. The pool is great and a sweet little breakfast buffet set up next to it each morning was a great start to the day. The 2 bedroom bungalow was the perfect size for...

Been going for years. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Pet friendly, and every place is like a home, with everything I need, plus most units have a safe enclosed yard - with a lawn! They really care, and I love their social little breakfast on weekends during the winter months.

Great pool.....lovely continental breakfast.....wonderful rooms. We had a family reunion with sisters, cousins, and spouses and children. It was a great place to gather, and wonderful for the younger crowd to leave for lunch or cocktails at dusk, and then gather again.........The kitchens were wonderful and served all of our needs......stocked cabinets, too!! Everything was GREAT!!!

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...
