We rented the two story town house and it did not disappoint! The secluded master bedroom upstairs was well appointed with a comfy bed, television, balcony (that is shared with the suite across the way) and nice bath products. It was clean and well-maintained. Downstairs feature a small, albeit fully functional kitchen with a full sized fridge which was perfect...

We spent our third anniversary in this romantic place. The experience we had at the Hotel California starts with the Owner, Larry and his wife, Patty, the management: Lucy, Betty, Mike, and last but not least, Jay. It's hard to find words that express how welcome they made us feel. This is the second time we have stayed with them...

Once I figured out I was going to the Palm Springs area for my birthday, I chose Hotel California due to their high reviews and service level from their team. My expectations were exceeded in every way! Upon walking in the front gate, we were greeted by Lucy who was there to welcome us with a big smile and beverage...

LOVE this place. Went back for the 3rd time over Remembrance Day weekend and this time brought my brother and his girlfriend as well as a couple of close friends. Thanks Larry, Lucy, Jay, Betty and Mike for making us feel like part of the family. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

We were greeted with a beer and a glass of wine at check in so we are off to a great start. Within 10 minutes we had met the owner, Larry, his daughter Lucy and Jay who keeps things running smoothly at the hotel. The main concern of the folks running the hotel is your happiness. They had hints and...

Cozy, quiet, and comfortable, Hotel California is unique. The staff are genuinely happy to see you and ready to help plan the dining, sightseeing, hiking, or other recreation you're hoping to do. We can't wait to return; there's more to do in Palm Springs and we will definitely stay at Hotel California on our next visit.

We booked 2 nights at Hotel California from 11/18/16 to 11/20/2016. We were met upon arrival by Jay, a really nice gentleman who helped us get situated in our room and gave us a personal tour of the ground. He also gave us some good info on where to go and how to get around as well as where to...

A nice welcoming hotel after a long long drive. Easy to find and near by to food and restaurants. Our room has a frig and microwave, hotel's open kitchen has coffee, tea, and a stock of kitchen supplies like jam and salad dressing, pots and plates for do it you delve meals. Vegetation all around give a homey touch. A...

This was my second time staying at the Hotel California, and once again, my expectations were not only met, but exceeded by the level of service provided. The location is great, and within walking distance of all amenities. There is a free shuttle Thurs-Sun that goes downtown, and a fleet of cruiser bikes if you'd rather go for a ride....

One of the best hotels we have been visiting on this tour. Nice, cozy and romy. The staff is quite serviceminded and very nice. Very nice and try to do the best to make you feel at home. The rooms are nice and everything just worked perfect. The bathroom was just fine and the cleaning good.
