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.
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!
Stay was quiet, peaceful. We stayed in the grotto rooms , they were very comfortable , a little vintage and pleasant. If you're looking for the Hyatt, this isn't it but if you're looking for quiet and a desert oasis- this is the place
Traveller from santa rosa, ca
Very private and tranquil resort and spa, desert oasis, on 56-acres, with natural hot mineral springs. Adults only. Casually …More
I understand that I was staying at a 2-star hotel, but there were two things that kind of put me off: 1) There was still food left in the fridge from the last guests, 2) There was an enormous roach in the shower. As for the first, I am sure the hotel staff works hard to clean rooms, and I am sure that the fridge is one of the last places they check. It was still off-putting. As for the second, I'm sure the roach came up through the drain--but, again, off-putting.
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.
Our stay was pleasant at Lido Palms. Mr. Fuji was very welcoming and kind. Our room was amazing. Spacious and comfortable. Kitchen had pans and a lot of daily kitchenware. Definitely coming back and booking a room here again. Thank you!
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.
