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!
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.
The hotel is dated and could use a make-over. Room and grounds were clean and for the price this is what you would expect. The pool area is great and offers tons of options. Weekends are crowded as the locals are able to purchase day use tickets (this is possible every day but weekends are crowded; it was okay during the week).
The service at the restaurant stinks and the food is mediocre.
There are really good restaurants in Desert Hot Springs. We especially enjoyed The Cottage Too (went there every morning for breakfast) and South of the Border has the best Mexican food I've ever eaten.
I had no idea of what to expect but was pleasantly suprised. Room was nice it was clean.Great staff very helpful. Ate in the restrant and food was terrific and price was too!!! Very reasonable priced ausome service. Some other places should just clone their staff they were so nice. All of them.
My husband and I stayed one night at Turtle Back Mesa after watching the Indian Wells tennis matches. We loved taking a bath in the hot spring tub at night, and slept wonderfully. Breakfast was delicious and filling. We'd gladly return!
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.

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.
