Our first stay here and already booked our next. Everything you need and nothing you don't. The owners and staff are outstanding. You feel at home as soon as you walk through the gate. The pool is small but perfectly heated. The location is great, close to stores and restaurants, but not too close. We definitely appreciate the no pets...

The location was great - we're within a very short walk to the Palm Springs free bus stop and a short drive to Ralphs for food and wine. The shared kitchen has barbecues outside and is very well appointed. Guests leave spices,...

We spent a wonderful 6 nights in this great small friendly hotel. The staff are tremendously helpful and concerned that you enjoy your stay. The rooms while not luxurious are very comfortable and and clean. The location is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown that you can spend a quiet day sitting by the pool...
