Well appointed 11 room charming boutique lodge with lovely comfortable outdoor pool seating. Each room is uniquely & tastefully decorated with high end furnishings & decor. Continental breakfast with pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt & granola is included. Colt's is the ideal place for a quiet romantic getaway!

Had a great stay in this charming place. The room was beautifully decorated and immaculate. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Wish the weather had been warmer to enjoy the pool and colorful courtyard more. Would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I booked a 3 nite stay in Palm Springs to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Of course, Colt's Lodge came highly recommended on Trip Advisor. Wow, were we impressed. Colt's Lodge had to have been the finest boutique hotel we've ever stayed in. It was just perfect. From themed rooms with amazing attention to detail, to finely manufactured...

This stay was amazing! The staff was attentive and friendly. Our room was immaculate. Each room has a different style. We enjoyed hanging out by the pool right outside of our door both in the evening and while we enjoyed our morning coffee. They offer a nice breakfast with a variety of items. The grounds are beautiful and there are...

This is a very nice place to stay--a converted motel, with clean, well-maintained rooms, a lovely outdoor area, and friendly staff. It falls short of a five-star rating in my book for a couple of reasons. Breakfast was lackluster--they ran out of tea one day, baked goods were not homemade (except one day), and while the website promises frittata on...

Dear Traveler3719 I am sorry you did not like our "Continental" breakfast which goes way beyond the norm and is anything but "lackluster" The baked goods (by law) must be (prepackaged) when you do not have a commercial kitchen. We have since upgraded our licenses to allow us a better service. We have never advertised our breakfast but anything other...

Just stayed at Colt's Lodge and can't wait to return. Friendly, solicitous owners, beautifully renovated decor, tasty continental breakfast, and great location. Only eleven rooms; a real gem in Palm Springs.

Wonderful stay. The gardens are beautiful and the property is so peaceful. Only took off one star because the shower was a little weird. The shower head was bizarrely high and at a weird angle that made showering without getting your hair wet impossible. Still, it wouldn't impeded us from staying here again. We'll definitely be repeat visitors!
