This is a truly beautiful property with exceptional landscaping and a wonderful pool. Just the type of small, unique lodging that we love to patronize. Unfortunately, another part of the hospitality equation is how a special request is addressed. I had asked for no fragrance in the room, including on the sheets and with air freshener spray, because fragrance triggers...

Dear MC Thank you for your review. I was aware of your request for NO FRAGRANCE as was the manager and housekeeping prior to your arrival. To answer your comments: 1. The room was not sprayed the day of your arrival... we do however use a freshner in rooms that require it. 2. you checked in after our closing time...

Dear Titta Thank you for a great review. Not to take anything away from Janie (she is fantastic) but we have flyers in the rooms and in the office to inform guests that we have tram tickets that we sell the guests at a discount as a regular service to our guests.

A lovely stay. Very clean, friendly and competent service. We stay in Room #1 which was right at the end with our own patio and lemon tree. Very private.

Had a great stay in this charming place. The room was beautifully decorated and immaculate. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Wish the weather had been warmer to enjoy the pool and colorful courtyard more. Would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I booked a 3 nite stay in Palm Springs to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Of course, Colt's Lodge came highly recommended on Trip Advisor. Wow, were we impressed.

This is a very nice place to stay--a converted motel, with clean, well-maintained rooms, a lovely outdoor area, and friendly staff. It falls short of a five-star rating in my book for a couple of reasons. Breakfast was lackluster--they ran out of tea one day, baked goods were not homemade (except one day), and while the website promises frittata on...

Dear Traveler3719 I am sorry you did not like our "Continental" breakfast which goes way beyond the norm and is anything but "lackluster" The baked goods (by law) must be (prepackaged) when you do not have a commercial kitchen. We have since upgraded our licenses to allow us a better service. We have never advertised our breakfast but anything other...
