We went for a competition and stayed here. They were great help in getting us to were we needed to be and the pools were very relaxing and clean. We re booked for the end of the month because my daughter wanted to bring her friends up and have a birthday party weekend to play in the pools. We can't wait to go again.
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!
This is a small, private place that is simple and lovely. I read previous reviews before booking and I think the people looking for opulence would be better suited for Palm Springs. This is a quiet place with two lovely natural spring pools that gave me a sound sleep like which I probably haven't experienced since my infancy. No frills, off the beaten path delight.
Quiet retreat comfortable room lovely surroundings in the desert.
We stayed here because we had business to attend to and did not want to stay in the heart of Pakm Springs. We weren't tgere long enough to enjoy the mineral pools but would consider going again to do so. A bit pricey for what you get. Very old style, but not run down in the least.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Paula at the Desert Hot Springs Inn from Friday to Sunday after Thanksgiving. This was my second stay at the hotel. I really love the intimacy of the place as it has only six rooms and one gets to know one's neighbors without feeling drowned in the anonymity of a sprawling hotel resort.
Eric had booked us into a queen room with a kitchen. Last time, my brother and I had stayed in rooms 3 and 4 as they form a connecting suite with a nice kitchen in between. I was pleasantly surprised to find that our room, room 2, had a good -sized kitchen also which was stacked with everything one would need.
Paula has impeccable taste and one can enjoy her flair for decorating as one enjoys the beautifully furnished rooms.
We took advantage of the continental breakfast each morning which included freshly made coffee, many choices of tea, bagels and cream cheese, fruit and orange juice.
The jacuzzi is filled with the natural mineral water that Desert Hot Springs is noted for at a very cozy 102 degrees. The pool is also heated. We both enjoyed the ambient meditative music which helped make our stay even more relaxed.
We drove down to PS to visit the Indian Canyons on Saturday and hiked for about 3 hours. On Friday night, we went to Casa Blanca in DHS based on Yelp recommendations, and it didn't disappoint. Saturday afternoon we stopped off at Playoffs bar in DHS to watch the USC vs UCLA game. Saturday night we got some comfort food from Bristol Farms. Yum!
I'll be honest we only stayed here because pretty much everything else was sold out or in the $300 a night range and we needed a refrigerator for an overnight stay. I read all the reviews on expedia and then the new management's responses to them and we decided to go ahead and take a chance. I'm glad we did. I think this place has a lot of potential even though it's not quite there yet, they're still in renovations. The pool and 5 hot tubs were awesome - sparkling clean, warm and relaxing. The room was really cute, it was freshly painted and had new flooring. There were some repairs that still needed to be made in the kitchen area but the refrigerator worked perfectly and everything was very clean. The hotel staff are very friendly and so were the other guests that we met. This hotel has the potential to be a diamond in the rough. If we are heading past this hotel I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
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.
