Immaculate, small hotel with wonderful rooms, pool, hot tub, courtyard and hummingbirds. Staff is wonderful, helpful with everything we needed. They definitely deserve their rating as #1 in service! Wonderful to start the day watching the hummingbirds by the pool.

Palm Springs is known for their endless sunshine (and lack of rain), right! Well it just so happened that it poured for 2 of the 3 days that we stayed at the hotel. My husband and I still had a wonderful trip but only because of the amazing atmosphere at the hotel. It was down right cold and rainy, yet...

Hi we spent three nights here and they were absolutely wonderful. The owners got involved and made sure we had golf clubs (complimentary) when the ones on hand were being used by other guests. This is a small boutique hotel which makes up with amazing service for the lack of some amenities. The pool and hot tub were first rate...

A real gem for a perfectly relaxed visit to Palm Springs. Here you are not simply a hotel guest because you are a paying customer, you actually feel like a very special guest of the very likeable owners and the trio of terrific young women who run the place. You get the key to your spacious retro-decor room and are...

The staff was as warm and generous and helpful as any I have ever encountered. The pool was luxuriantly warm, making swimming even in January a delight. And they don't nickle and dime you. FREE wine, snacks, etc. All in all, a great place that I will definitely stay in again if I return to Palm Springs.

How this little piece of paradise exists just 80 miles outside of LA is amazing. I felt like I was in another world altogether. The resort is calm, peaceful, very clean and inviting. I was really impressed with the amount of space in the rooms, so comfortable and so much closet space! I slept very well. I actually needed to...

You can go through my account and read about our visits 1-5. We began staying here in 2012 and it's our FAVORITE spot. We start our New Year here each January to rest, relax and rejuvenate. The staff is incredible and the owners continually improve on the property each time we visit. Amanda told me how happy she was working...

Loved the hotel, felt like we were staying in a friend's pool house. The owners and all the staff were so welcoming. The pool and spa were incredibly relaxing. We spent hours floating in the pool. If we wanted to go downtown, we could request to be driven over in the hotel vehicle or there was a "Buzz" bus stop...
