This is an amazing find. Cool rooms, kitchen and den access. And the service is outstanding. They really get hospitality.
We will be back.

Travelling from Australia with my mother to reunite with my daughter, we were looking for a home away from home. We found it at Hotel California. Lucy, Larry and Judi were warm and welcoming. The setting was cosy and relaxed and the rooms were large and clean. The daily fruit and coffee and working kitchen made it economical as well. We were all so sad to leave and will definitely stay again next year. Highly recommended.

We are confirmed 'small hotel' guests after the stay at the Hotel California. The owners and staff were so personable and accommodating. The rooms are large and clean. A bonus is that there are no extra charges upon check out. The rate is the rate - everything is included, including a welcoming adult beverage, snacks in the room and full use of the kitchen (with condiments). We will be back!

I stayed at Hotel California for the second time recently, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
It is a beautiful hotel in a gorgeous setting. It is blissfully quiet (on both visits, I had the best night's sleep ever), the rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean.

In addition to the lovely setting, ALL of the staff at Hotel California are wonderful; they are extremely friendly & helpful, and the complimentary DVD library, food, wine & bicycle hire are all unexpected and fantastic extras, which help to make this hotel great value for money.

This is a fantastic place to stay whether on business or vacation.

We have travelled a lot and can honestly say this little boutique resort is tops on our list! We stayed here Feb 10-15 and felt so comfortable and at home, we hated to leave. Lucy, Larry, Jay, Patty and Judy are experts at what they do...paying attention to every little detail. The evening visits around the fire are the perfect way to end the day in Palm Springs. The housekeeping is spot on and there are a lot of extras that are included ....like freshly picked grapefruit from Larry's tree in his backyard...delish! Being rural dwellers ourselves, we appreciated the hum of the air conditioner at night...helped to block out that distant city noise. Our only advice is that if you are staying at the Hotel California to do just that...STAY there! It is a resort in itself and it's beautiful heated pool , gorgeous landscaping and friendly owners and fellow guests make it a perfect getaway. We look forward to many return visits. If this place doesn't put a smile on your face, nothing will!

Room Tip: Each room has it's own special charm....talk to the staff and they will pair you with the perfe...

In our opinion Hotel California is the only place to stay while in Palm Springs,CA. Quite and quaint. The owners, Larry and Patty, and staff are like family, housekeeping is impeccable and the amenities are too numerous to mention. The surrounding area is safe and clean with a variety of restaurants within walking distance and you always have the limo at your service. The fact that it is an adult only hotel assures you won't be having to put up with little children running around making extra noise.

Room Tip: Book well in advance. The is great at helping you find a room. We've stayed in three different r...

We booked this hotel based on the rave reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed.The team are very friendly and helpful without being 'in your face'. Lots of small things such as the loan of a coolbox for our day in the desert, free internet access and hot coffee in addition to the impeccable surroundings. What they have done with the courtyard is amazing,with pool and hot tub in a lush oasis. I have come home with plenty of ideas for own garden space.
Walking distance to restaurants and coffee shop was a bonus for us as we spent a lot of time in the car and liked a bit of a walk which can be difficult in America where there are few pavements.
