This place was AMAZING! We had the most fabulous time, thanks to Jay, Larry, Lucy, Betty, and incredible maids Josephina and Sola! These people go out of their way to take care of your every need, often anticipating it before you even ask. From the quaint, beautiful setting, to the fact that they have a full kitchen where you can...

Lucy, Pat and Mike were such good hosts. Felt like home the moment we walked in to see if any rooms were available. Got the personal tour prior to booking a room. Felt like an Oasis within the city. Amenities are so nice - pool, courtyard, bicycles, hot-tub, kitchen area, movies/library and liked the complimentary beverages and snacks. Atmosphere was...

Some places that you stay just work and this is one of them. It isn't the most modern, there aren’t any great scenery views and they don’t have a restaurant but it just works. Great location, great staff and great atmosphere. If you are looking for something a little different from high rise impersonal hotels then the hotel California is...

It's pink stucco buildings surrounding a courtyard, very southwest/Mexican feel. The courtyard contains the pool, of course, and hot tub and lots of lounge chairs, but also tables, pillowed chairs under shade, candles, fountains, birds, plants and trees. Each room or suite is different in layout and decor but all are outfitted with the same linens, bath and bar amenities,...

This was our second stay after a four year absence. The hotel is in a beautiful neighbourhood with excellent views of the mountains and great opportunities for walking and cycling. Groceries and other amenities are close by. The grounds are lush and the pool and whirlpool are beautiful. It would be challenging not to be on a first name basis...

Visited with my daughter (17) for the fourth year in a row and as always everything was perfect! Great hospitality and anything you need is available upon request. The pool is warm the spa is warmer and both are sparkling clean. Free use of bicycles too!

A wonderful family-run local establishment. It was a pleasure to stay there. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and spacious. Beautiful details everywhere. Everyone was responsive and it felt like the experience was personalized. They gave such a warm welcome upon our arrival.

We would agree with many other reviews about Hotel California.....it feels like you become part of the family. They have paid close attention to details that makes it feel that they are hosting a family gathering rather than just assigning you a room and forgetting about you. It made for a very special addition to my wife's birthday celebration. We...

What a Great place to stay! Hotel California is a small, family owned, gorgeous hotel. We ended up booking only for one night after a bad experience somewhere else. We loved it so much, we will be back! The grounds of the hotel are lush with tropical vegetation, fountains, a large, heated swimming pool and hot tub. Lots of comfortable...

Hotel California is a great boutique hotel with lovely rooms, a nice pool and hot tub, and attentive owners and staff. They even gave us stockings on Christmas! The air conditioner in our room worked better than in the other places we've stayed in Palm Springs, and somehow we did not hear any street noise even though it's right off...
