Views, Largest Room Ever, Dogfriendly and , wow , Super Staff . We came for a family hike trip with our dog. The staff is so sweet and accommodating and we felt so pampered. I loved our grand bungalow and the awesome views. So much comfort and space for such a tiny price. Oh and they even have a hummingbird nest and thousands of little sparkle nightlights around the heated pool and spa like at the Plaza in New York. I love it so much that i will be back next month!

We had a terrible experience withr the staff. The lady and the guy were so rude to me and my whole family. Pool is open 24 hours (8am-10pm quiet hours) the lady said we couldn’t stay after 9pm and also we couldn’t use our phone around the pool. It was my little cousin’s birthday and she throw his toys in the trash without asking us. What a bad experience!!! The place was awsome but the staff was terrible and rude.

I adored this place. Had alot of character in the true, classic Palm Springs appeal. Our bungalow was well appointed and very comfortable. The whole place was easy on the eyes and senses. I wish I could have stayed longer.
