We stayed for a long weekend at our favorite place in Palm Springs, APITS!!! We don’t usually vacation there in the fall (November, to be exact), but it was my husband’s birthday and we felt like we could use a little R & R before the holiday season began!! That is something that is always available at this charming hotel:...

My wife and I have been coming to Palm Springs for over 35 years.... For the past 21 we have been coming to A Place In The Sun. In the beginning it left a lot to be desired! The owners for the past 9 years, Norma & Ron have worked hard to make it a home away from home for...

Thank you, Mike! It is always wonderful to have you and DeeDee with us. I think this was your first visit without Bailey! Can't believe she's off to college... One correction to your review - Ron and I have owned A Place in the Sun for 13 years, not 9! How time flies when you're having fun... :) Hugs and...

Don't stay here if you are looking for a cookie-cutter, convention style resort hotel. DO stay here is you want lots of space, a full kitchen, a comfortable bedroom, a full living room, and a GREAT pool. This is one of those great 1 level casita style old apartment hotels from the 50's that dot Palm Springs downtown area. We...

My husband and I have been coming here for the past 9 years. We love this place so much that if it's booked we just don't come at all. We can't imagine staying anywhere else.We always stay in the 1 bedroom garden bungalow which is quite spacious. We have a kitchen, separate bedroom, dining and living room. And where else...

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay in late October. We were cordially greeted, first by housekeeping and then by the owners, Ray and Norma on our arrival. Our room was small but well equipped and had a private patio. Luckily, the evenings were cool enough so that we didn't need to use the air-conditioning. We slept with...

Heard about this place, we paid over $500.00 for 2 nights. It was tattered inside and the carpet was horrible. Everything needs to be renovated, if you were handicapped you would never be able to have a shower as you have to step over top of the bathtub before you could get into the old almost dirty tub. The roar...

Can't believe you were even at A Place in the Sun, with so many bad things to say. We only had one other couple from Canada in October (except for our favorite canadians that come for a month every October, and every March), so we looked at the bungalow you were in, and the weekend you were here. You didn't...

This is the second time we spend a weekend and since our last visit about 5 years ago, an outdoor jacuzzi was installed in the yard of this unit. I picked a unit with a jacuzzi not having a clue that it was the same unit as we'd been in prior. Amazing to be luxuriating in the spa while looking...

It had been a few years since we've stayed there, for no other reason than we weren't taking many vacations due to renovation of our home.
