The Hotel California is an absolute treasure. Larry, Lucy, Jay, Mike and staff are wonderful caring folks who made me feel right at home. The pool and spa in lush garden surroundings was terrific for someone coming from freezing Boston. Larry introduces the guests to each other -- a great way to get to meet others from all parts of...

My first of many visits to Hotel California. I now see why it is always so highly rated! From the moment you walk in, you feel like you're at home. Jay and Larry (Owner) was so very accommodating. I love the 24hour pool, Hot tub, and shared common kitchen and BBQ area. I also really appreciated the complementary beach cruisers!...

This is the best hotel experience I have ever had. You are treated like an especially esteemed member of the family. They cannot do enough for you. It is a private oasis in the middle of Palm Springs. We will be back. Book early, it is popular.

What is there to say that has not already been covered?! This place is an absolute gem!! I loved every minute. They allowed early check-in and gave us pink champagne in a cute ice bucket with two glasses since it was my birthday. Oh, let's not forget that upon check in, Jay offered us a cold adult beverage even at...

Larry, Lucy, Mike, Jay,- what can we say- you arrive as guests but leave as family. We could go on and on about this and that- but these guys have it right. They truly care and enjoy what they do and it shows in so many ways. Read the other reviews if you want to but we suggest you get...

We heard about Hotel California from our friends who had stayed there & had a great time. My wife & I decided to go there for our 15th wedding anniversary.

Our second visit to The Hotel California. We were made to feel as welcome this second time as we were the first, including a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel is cozy and small and one soon becomes friends with the guests. The ambiance is friendly and relaxing. Many restaurants and shopping are a short walk or...
