We stay here at least 4 weekends a year. Its always spic and span clean! And the friendly staff make this a no-brainer for us. It is a close drive to Palm Springs and other interesting places. PS: We LOVE the water!!!

My sister and I checked into the Lido 1/31/2016 after 6 pm. It was stormy night with high winds. This would be my fifth stay and it was long overdue. I assured my sister that would still be able to enjoy the mineral water in the indoor pool. As soon as our swimsuits were on the power went off! No...

I am truly sorry that the writer is so upset. We did disagree as to whether we should comp her and her sister for the first of a two night stay due to the blackout in the area that lasted on and off for over two hours that evening. What I object to, however, are the false statements that the...

My husband and two older teen children stayed in room 11 of the Lido Palms and I'm so glad! We did two 7+ mile hikes at Joshua Tree N.P. and being able to enjoy the hot spring mineral pools before and afterward was heavenly! One night was rainy, but there was the large covered hot tub to use! The room...

This quiet, clean spa inn is a gem. We stayed for 10 days in November, 2015. Ten kitchen suites surround an outdoor pool at 93 degrees, an outdoor spa pool at 103 degrees, with a sheltered spa pool indoors at 100 degrees. Mature palm trees, ocotillo and cactus sway in the breeze. The water in the pools comes from Miracle...

I could easily stay here for a week or more! This resort is a modest, little hide away in Desert Hot Springs, with Spa Services (which we don't typically use). You'll have everything needed for a comfortable stay, with a clean room, great bed, quiet atmosphere (no music blaring away!!), older but functional kitchen area with stove, refrigerator, table &...

After spending two nights in at the Lido Palms, you just may never want to go home. This quaint eleven room motel has all the perks and whistles of a larger accommodation but without all the noise and fuss. Each room which is tastefully decorated has either a king or two queen beds, fluffy spa robes and large comfy pool...

I've read some of the other reviews and frankly can't do a better job than they did so…instead of describing the resort I will tell you why I went and what I got as a result. I only had two days to spend there and I needed a week's worth of relaxation. I arrived on a Tuesday and left on...

You get off I-10 and drive for a few more minutes longer than you expect. Then after a right and left turn you will find this "diamond in the rough "! I just got home from spending Sunday-Friday here and the difference from the parking lot into the lobby is amazing. When you get here, you think you will be...
