What a wonderful stay! We own a Bed and Breakfast, so we notice so much more when we travel. The hospitality from the team was amazing - so many amenities and small touches that made our stay special. Thank you for the great get away - we look forward to our next visit!

Beautiful and relaxing place. Me and my husband had been there before quite a few times. It had been 4 years since we've been back. Felt like we were back home. It was quiet and the pool was awesome. And love the communal kitchen. Light breakfast in the mornings, or you could prepare your own and barbeque at dinner. We will definitely be back next year!

The staff at the Hotel California were wonderful - they really added to our experience there - friendly, helpful, and readily available. There is 24 hour access to a full size kitchen, with always available snacks and beverages. There is an included breakfast with a reasonable selection of foods and great coffee from a local roaster. The pool, while somewhat small, is nice and heated, and there is a hot tub as well. They provide complementary wine or cocktails in the early evening and even have a popcorn machine with fresh popcorn. Bikes are available to use for no charge on a first come basis. My favorite part was sitting at breakfast outside and having a hummingbird come to feed literal inches from my hand! All in all, a great and reasonably priced place to stay in Palm Springs. And, of course, you can check out any time you like but you might not want to leave.

Read the reviews before booking. Thought there was no way it could live up to the hype. Spoiler alert, it does. From the minute you walk in you feel like you are staying at a friend’s hotel. Warm pool and hot tub. Free continental breakfast. Bikes available for free use (first come, first served). Definitely coming back.

This place is a gem in every way: lovely grounds (tea lights everywhere at night), perfect temp pool and hot tub, quiet and peaceful at night, great decor, comfy beds, ample snacks. And outstanding service. Tracy (general manager) bent over backwards to help us resolve problems with our third party booking agent -- she (and Kelley) were the gold standard for hospitality. Will definitely stay again.

The 5th time at HC. As always, an excellent experience! Home away from home. Thanks to Corbin, Kelly, Jasmin and Traci for making these 3 nights so relaxing. Rooms great, quiet atmosphere and the kitchen got everything we needed. Highly recommended!

This is really a charming hotel for a getaway. It is close to downtown, but is very quiet. We stayed in room 11, a large room overlooking the pool and spa. It is comfortable with a large shower. Good continental breakfast, and a great pool and spa. Friendly staff and free snacks, wine and beer. We will definitely return. Our only complaints are the TV, where there are no instructions and their telling us that you only have to notify them if you do not want your room cleaned. In reality, you have to hang the thing outside if you do want your room cleaned.
