This is my 4th stay at Villa Royale Inn! My daughter and I continue coming back here because of how beautiful and relaxing it is. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The pool is large and the space is gorgeous. Love waking up in this place!

Its a quirky little boutique hotel. Its old, has charm, and is maintained nicely. The one bedroom we had was huge and decorated from an era gone by. The staff aims to please. The neighborhood is a little sketchy.

This was the fourth or fifth time staying at the Villa Royale Inn. It is under new ownership within the last two years and it seems the "kinks" have been worked out. Beautiful property and lovely rooms all decorated differently. Staff are exceptionally nice and efficient and bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful. Very good quiet place for...

This property is filled with enchantment around every corner, from the morning glory vined brook to the rose gardened pathway which leads to the jacuzzi with hummingbirds and butterflies everywhere....not to mention the most romantic ambience as you dine in Europa while a harpist plays heavenly tunes (Sat. nites) and delectable meals are impeccably served....pure sweetness! Especially for the couple...

We found Villa Royale through a TravelPony special. The property is older, harking back to the golden years of Palm Springs as retreat for Los Angeles power players. The rooms are quaint and charming if a bit dated. Solid brick walls mean that the entire compound is stone silent. Breakfast was included in our stay and while the menu is...

This hidden '40s gem is close to downtown and full of historic character, pretty foliage, and deep swimming pools all to yourself in the summer. Breakfast is included and is served in your room the days the restaurant isn't open. The two bedroom villa is spacious and comfortable with unique furnishings. The staff members were helpful and kind. No resort...

I stumbled on this hidden gem and thank God, that I did! Was catapulted back in time to a quieter gentler time in history. This is the kind of place that makes you think of movie sets and glamorous movie stars. I loved the lush grounds and hidden gardens, pools are clear and crisp and the spa is private. Loved,...

Visited Villa Royale with my husband twice. Very impressive, lovely, and peaceful. Everything here just made my trip unforgettable. Should I visit Palm Springs again, I'll definitely choose Villa Royale.

Take a journey back in time to days of old Hollywood, this is the spot they stayed, played and ate in Palm Springs! This resort is unique, the rooms were very clean, with all the amenities, we modern day travelers expect. They have decorated the rooms with upscale antique furniture, so every room is different. Both pools and the Jacuzzi...

If you don't stay here, you are messing up! My girlfriend and I were on vacation for our b-days and this hotel took us on really short notice after we cancelled a previous reservation at another hotel down the street (it was pretty much a party hotel where it was constant bass shaking the room.) The Villa Royale, on the...
