If you're looking for a good gay resort, don't hesitate to make a reservation because let me tell you.. You wont find anything better. Its beautiful, the staff is friendly, the location is perfect and the cruising area is massive and clean! Me and my husband had the time of our life here. We will be back soon! 👌🏼

While Inn Exile was in a decaying slump under prior ownership, the owners of All Worlds took it over a couple of years ago, and have done a terrific job of transforming the property. Inn Exile, with its 3 pools and additional wading pool, has always been an expansive, beautiful property. Now, under All Worlds' ownership, the rooms have been...

The helpful and responsive staff are the strongest aspects. My shower had a defective shower head and the room safe wasn't attached to the wall, and when I mentioned it to a passing staff member, they immediately arranged to have the items fixed promptly. The swimming pools were sparkling clean and overall housekeeping was good. My room (704) was spacious...

I'd toured Inn Exile many years ago but had not stayed here before the property is owned and managed by All Worlds now (where I have stayed many times) so you can use all facilities at both properties. We booked a 2 bedroom was really a 1 bedroom apartment with the living room set up at a bedroom very spacious....

Ok, so the hotel sucks. Rooms are not nice, staff is not knowledgeable and need retraining and the property is mediocre. BUT it's a pretty cool place to be naked and get some sun. The pools are decent and there is plenty of open space to lay out. They also give you free access to all worlds (their original property...

We decided at the last minute to take a little weekend getaway for Easter weekend. The place up the street from Inn Exhile that we usually stay was fully booked so rather than not come to PS at all, we decided to give IE a try. Won't make that mistake again. We should give it 1 star but give it...

I recently stayed at Inn Exile for the better part of a week. I found the property to be well maintained, clean and quite peaceful. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The room, 801 in my case, was clean, well appointed and spacious. I was a bit disappointed to find out The Maze is closed, but I...

I was @ Inn Exile a year ago or more and the place was not clean and kinda empty. Well...new owners came in and the old Inn Exile is Back! My room was clean and the gay energy/sexualtiy is palpable.

When you check in there is a sign offering $100 toward your next stay for every tripadvisor review. I don't think I will be receiving that offer. I have stayed at Inn Exile many times over the years and always had a nice experience. This time was very different. The room smelled of mildew because the shower curtain had red...

This gay hotel is entirely walled, gated and located on 2 Acres in a modern setting in Palm Springs California. The atmosphere couldn’t be more inviting; with 4 pools, there is a place to splash around everywhere you look. After your workout in the fully equipped gymnasium, choose one of the Jacuzzis to relax, recharge. Days may be spent poolside in the sun, but the outdoor fireplace after sunset, seems to call to everyone. And remember….. Clothing is Always Optional.Situated just 3 miles away from Palm Springs international airportVisitors from all over the globe are lured to Palm Springs for its storied Hollywood legacy, its Native American heritage and its absolutely stellar collection of mid-century modern architecture.Palm Springs is nested at the base of the majestic mountains with a village atmosphere that has been preserved and embellished over the years.
