Great service, friendly guests, nice communal areas and comfy beds! Curly and Joe were very sweet and ensured we had whatever we needed ... wine at check in = check, limo downtown = check, restaurant recommendations = check ... and more!

A most pleasant oasis of calm in the desert. Spent a wonderful couple of days on two separate occasions now and always can't bear to leave; nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. Will definitely be coming back in the near future!

We usually stay at the larger, more well-known resorts in Palm Springs, but not anymore! This gem has it all...quiet, clean, owners on the premises who make sure you feel at home. Even though it is on the main street, once you enter the gates, you are a world away. I wish we could have stayed a month. The staff...

The staff, comprised of Curly, Moe, Kirby, Larry and...

We stayed here one night on a trip to the coast and loved it so much, we booked the same room on our return trip. Curly and the rest of the staff were fantastic, from their personal greetings and orientation, to their excellent restaurant recommendations. We had a problem with the AC the first night,and Curly brought us a fan....

Having stayed in many hotels over the last forty years this is one of the best. It is not large, it is not overflowing with staff, and it is not expensive so how given all that do they manage to provide some of the best service and little extras we have found anywhere. The complimentary bikes to explore the area,...

We booked because the good reviews in tripadvisor. We didn t expect it was going to be so great! The staff helped us a lot, welcome us with coke, snacks and beer and in the morning gave us some fresh water for our trip. The pool zone beautifull, the room charming. Thanks a lot, we would recommend it highly!!
