Where should I start? We had an AMAIZING business-tuned-pleasure trip in Hotel California. From the minute we stepped into the property, Curly offered us glasses of wine and gave us a tour of the property: -guests enjoying wine by a neat outdoor fire pit, -a heated swimming pool and a Jacuzzi (open 24hours, which we were looking forward to every...

Wonderful small hotel that doesn't feel like a hotel. More like a B&B. Secluded Spanish tile pool area surrounded by tropical trees, plants, and flowers, with plenty of hummingbirds. Fire pit. Hot tub. The staff really understands customer service. Lots of extras that a regular hotel would charge for. Free use of bikes. Free coffee, soft drinks and wine. Free...

Stay here, you won't regret it. The place is so relaxing, it has a nice ambiance. Candles and tiki torches are lit each evening. The community kitchen is great, free coffee, fruit and licorice all day! We took out the cruiser bikes a few times, there are some nice routes near the hotel. The place is clean, the beds are...

My wife and I recently stayed here for a 5 day get away. We have traveled worldwide over the years and stayed in many hotels, B&B's etc. and both agree that it is absolutely the best place we have ever been at. You are treated like royalty with so many of the little extras that make up a great stay....

One of the best places we have ever stayed! It made our 37th Anniversary that much better. I echo all the praises of the hotel and the amenities, but as also said before, the staff, and I mean everybody, was amazing! Thanks all and we will see you next year!

Immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Curly the manager is solid gold! His personality is fabulous. Great place with a lot of charm. The amenities available make it a wonderful place to have a long stay. We were sad we only had the one night.

I can't think of any hotel in which I have stayed worldwide in the past five years that has blown me away with the level of personal service offered by this little establishment, situated just a mile from the centre of Palm Springs. So impressed that I believe so-called professional hoteliers should be forced to visit Hotel California to learn,...

Just as promised, a lovely spot to relax in Palm Springs. Our attractive suite was huge and well-appointed. The owner and staff are delightful, doing everything to make your stay pleasant. Fine location away from the hubbub but close to good restaurants. The pool, lit with candles each evening, is a perfect gathering spot. Don't miss the Aerial Tramway! Our...

We stayed 5 nights here in glorious weather in early February 2015 and we loved every minute of it. We were greeted by Jay and offered complimentary drinks to welcome us before being shown around. The particular arrangements (ie the well stocked kitchen) for the small amount of self catering we indulged in (morning teas, fruit and simple breakfasts only)...
