Doug and Donna are both very gracious hosts. They are both very informative and leave you alone unless you wish to socialize. Book well in advance...as they are usually full. The refrigerator is well-stocked before you get there. The goodies are all complimentary as well. There is a make-up towel and neutrogena soaps provided. They keep the place up and... More

My partner and I visited the Desert House Inn for two nights in October as part of a tour of California. What a wonderful place - our room wasn't big but very cosy which is what you expect when booking a B&B. We stayed just before Halloween and were greeted with a small basket of chocolate and candy in our... More

My husband and I have been visiting Palm Springs for over ten years. In 2002, we discovered the Desert House and have stayed there ever since. You will not find more wonderful hosts than Doug and Donna, the owners of Desert House. Each time we visit, we feel we are greeted by true friends. The six rooms are spacious and... More

My wife and I spent the second week of March at the Desert House. The room was comfortable and clean, the kitchenette was well-equipped, and the pool and gardens were wonderful. The hosts were very gracious and eager to help with our dining, horseback riding, and hiking plans. A truly excellent little oasis at the center of Palm Springs.

Such a charming Inn. Doug and Donna are very informative, caring hosts. A wonderful attention to detail in each of the rooms, pool and especially the gardens. Walking distance to dowtown to great restaurants and shopping is a plus. We look forward to returning to hike some of the local trails. We highly recommend this "jewel in the desert".

A prior frequent vistior to Palm Springs and now an owner of a second home in Plam Springs, I was very disappointed with the Desert House, so much so that I was able to change hotels after seeing the place. While the rooms and very small common are are well appointed, the courtyard and pool area are within 15 feet... More

If you are searching for a peaceful, relaxing & beautiful place to get away, this is the place! We found this gem of a place and have visited 3 times in 10 months. Beautiful, comfortable & well appointed rooms. Only a short walk to shops & restaurants but a world away in the setting and hospitality. Doug & Donna are... More
