From the moment we arrived the team at Hotel California could not have been more helpful. The facilities and setting of the hotel were perfect and suitable for a longer stay than our 2 nights - you can self cater using their fully equipped kitchen and BBQ or head into town in 10 mins or so the coffee shop close...

This was our fourth stay at the compact Hotel California and it felt like staying among family or friends (who give you your space and just want you to have a great time). Love the community kitchen stocked with fresh fruit, coffee and the daily paper. Love the misters above the cozy pool. Love that the owner himself takes you...

Hotel California, Palm Springs, is an intimate boutique oasis just minutes from downtown. This was our fifth consecutive stay. Each year back to the hotel feels like getting back together with past acquaintances, including hotel owner Larry and staff Mike. We often see some of the same guests that come to stay from year to year. You really only need...

We came on holiday as a couple and cannot rate this hotel highly enough. It is family owned and they provide such wonderful service. On arrival we were offered a really friendly, warm and relaxed welcome by the owner and offered a drink. The pool area has been planted up and maintained beautifully and they provide all towels and lilos...

This was our second stay and we have already booked for next year. The hotel has 14 rooms so nice and small and personal. The full shared kitchen is great and we cooked quite a few meals when we just wanted to lounge around in our bathing suits and not go out anywhere. This place has such a personal touch...

Quite by chance my daughter and I stayed at this hotel recently and it was delightful. I felt transported to another place and time. Larry, the owner, gave us a guided tour after we'd checked in. The amenities were plentiful. There is a pool, spa and very pretty outdoor area in which to sit or lie and relax. A kitchen...

Hotel California has been the highlight of my trip to Palm Springs for the 2nd year in a row. The poolside is so relaxing and lush and is just what's needed after a day of golfing or shopping. The rooms come with everything you need and the beds and bedding are wonderful. The real gems of the hotel are Larry,...

Larry and the staff should write a book on how to treat customers! They think of everything! Everyone we talked to were either repeat customers or plan to return! They provide coffee every morning, fruit, water and snacks, free of charge. Also, we have free use of their kitchen and grills. Very clean and relaxing! Pool is an oasis!
