Only stayed here because very few hotels available because of Coachella. It turned out to be a nice place with the room like a small apartment with a king bed, couch, kitchen, and separate make-up area outside of bathroom. A pleasant surprise.
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.
We arrived late, but still, knowing that we were headed for the spa, Sandy (the owner) stayed around to light (and then I suppose un-light) the candles surrounding the spa. In the morning, I spent several lovely hours sitting by the pool, gazing a Mt. San Jacinto, talking to Sandy, with an occasional dip in the warm pool waters. My mother and I would have been content to spend the entire day there.
The owners (Sandy and Shah) are in the process of updating the rooms. Shah showed me two of them; both very clean, sleek and modern, but still unpretentious.
Went when it was 105 degrees which made almost all pools too hot to enjoy. My gf and I still enjoyed our stay, however. The restaurant at the hotel is fair priced and has great food. The room is very clean and we were both happy we didn't get a poolside room due to noise levels; however, the bed was hard as a rock and we both woke up with stiff backs. It's basically a no frills place but you can't beat the price of only $68 total for a one night stay
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.
