The kind owner of Lido Palms responded to our need to charge our car by directing his electrician to install a NEMA 14-50 amp outlet during our latest stay November 5-20, 2016. Now we can top off our EV at 230V, 20 amps at night, while we sleep! This motivated us even more to return, so we have booked another... More

We especially loved the heated mineral pools and certainly made the most of them! The rooms were spacious, with well equipped kitchen and large comfortable bed. The air conditioning was noisy but necessary. Even if you turned off yours, you could still hear next door's! We would definitely recommend and would visit again if in the area.

Only 10 units, but very nice. Clean, and secure. Therapeutic beds were very comfortable. Full kitchen was wonderful. We cooked dinner and breakfast in it. Pretty view of large cactus outside kitchen window. Front window view of mineral springs pool and hot tub. Very relaxing. Would recommend. I called police station to check out the area before we came, as... More

You might end up there accidentally, because the place you were supposed to stay made a mistake. When you see the sign that says Lido P s, you may imagine that you are on a low budget cross-country trip. If Rosemary greets you, she might remind of your friend's nice mom, if you stopped by her house on your low-budget... More

We really enjoyed staying at the Lido Palms! Perfect place to relax and take a dip in their amazing mineral springs pool and hot tub! It was so peaceful and calming. We highly recommend staying at this boutique hotel. The owners are very helpful and kind as well.

It was a spur of the moment decision to stay in Desert Hot Springs for the first time. Lido Palms and the small desert town experience were a pleasant surprise. Nothing fancy about the hotel or the town. Dated and not modern. But the hotel was clean, cozy, quiet and comfortable at a very reasonable price. With a small kitchen... More

Perfect place to relax. The Mineral Spring Pools are relaxing. Ron, the owner, is amazing and keeps the place picture perfect. Recommend a water massage and getting up early and relaxing in the pools.

After trying many different hotels and resorts in the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley over the last 8 years, this is the place in Desert Hot Springs where PirateG and Sweetness make sure we get to each year.
