Pool area very well kept, it was the draw for this hotel. All in all, I think 3.7 is a fair rating for the hotel. The biggest drawback was the lack of restaurants in the local area, everything seemed to be fast food or Mexican.

This place was excellent. The check-in was quick and easy, and although there didn't seem to be much staff in attendance, we had no difficulties and had an amazing stay here. The room was huge, and quiet, and the pools were beautiful and clean.

I found the staff REALLY helpful and nice and a minor issue with a leaky showerhead was fixed immediately. The breakfast coupons (for an off-site restaurant) were great - the restaurant has very good food (try the breakfast burrito and french toast!) and is pretty close to the hotel - long walk or short drive. The pools are fabulous - much nicer to be in than it looks from the pictures, with some nice cabana things in the pool area, which isn't the prettiest in the world, just go float in the water and you'll be happy. My room was very big, older but nicely repainted, with the hardest bed I've ever slept really well on - I can't explain it. Some noise from the pool, road, windstorm, etc - it's not the quietest hotel, nor the darkest - the blinds let in a lot of morning light. If you go in expecting a cheap, no-frills place to stay (like a budget motel) you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you go in expecting a Spa and Resort, well, it won't feel like that. I would stay here again for a cheap, pleasant getaway, but I wouldn't consider it a lush, relaxing treat type of place.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of July to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The front desk staff was ok-- not the friendliest, but not rude in any way. Our room, while as far away as possible from everything, looked beautiful. However, we had serious bug problems. I'm not sure if the room was unoccupied all week (we stayed during the weekend) and wasn't checked, but we found 3 pretty large spiders around the room, and crickets were EVERYWHERE. I can handle a bug here and there but I generally appreciate the comfort of bugs not being where I sleep (or shower). My husband came to my rescue and removed most of the bugs, and we didn't have many issues after that in our room. The afternoon we checked in, we went straight to the grotto and spent most of our time there throughout our stay. We quickly learned the first night that HUGE crickets like to scale the rocks all over the area (so don't lean against the walls while in the grotto), the steps, etc... and learned to get inside before it starts getting dark because that's when they all come out along with some very large cockroaches. I realize we were in the desert and expected some wildlife outdoors, but we've stayed in the area many times and didn't encounter this at other properties. It was unfortunate because we booked this hotel solely for the grotto and night swims, which we didn't get to fully enjoy. Otherwise, it was fairly nice and there were a lot of activities/classes to enjoy.

This place is a little slice of heaven. Once you step inside, you immediately feel a tranquility. The owner, Camilia is very sweet and accommodating. The rooms are very cozy, clean and the grounds are lovely! My sister and I had the pools to ourselves for most of the evening. That was so nice! Will be recommending this place to friends and family!

Pocket Guide: Palm Springs Desert Hot Springs Hotels
Through in-house spas, many lodging properties take full advantage of Desert Hot Springs’ best asset: mineral waters warmed by the earth. Homesteader Cabot Yerxa discovered the geothermal waters in 1913 while searching for potable water. Yerxa’s other legacy is the 35-room adobe mansion he built by hand. The home, now known as Cabot’s Pueblo Museum, is open for tours.
