If you are a dog lover, this inn is the best place to stay, period! The combination of the perfect temp mineral pool (no chlorine taste or smell), the beautifully decorated rooms and the back patio and large fenced open space for dogs was magic. Our family of 6 included 3 adults, 10 yr. old, 13 yr. old and our... More

Let me preface this review by saying I waited a while to publish this. My wife and I stayed here over Valentine's Day weekend looking for a relaxing desert getaway with our dog, but left extremely disappointed. I wrote most of this right away, but have edited it substantially now that some time and frustration about the stay have passed.... More

This is a hidden gem and if you are traveling with your dog you can't beat it. We enjoyed our stay very much and even extended our stay one more night. The natural hot springs mineral water in the hot tub and spa was so relaxing. The Inn has been renovated and decorated tastefully and is very clean with excellent... More

Once again, we leave an amazing relaxing stay at Miracle Springs. We live in the nearby mountains, Big Bear Lake, and love to get down here to Desert Hot Springs during winter, and during any time of the year, for relaxation, spa services, soothing Hot Spring pools, and a very peaceful hideaway from busy lives. Miracle Springs, and Desert Hot... More

This Inn is totally unique. It offers respite and comfort for both human and K-9. It is a lovely restored classic motel of an era gone by, but tastefully updated to a beautiful contemporary urban oasis in the desert. Located on a rising hill on the edge of town, in a more residential neighborhood. It affords gorgeous views of sunrise... More

I stayed at the Pet Friendly Desert Hot Springs Inn for a week. My room opened to the pool and hot springs spa. It was clean, my bed comfortable, and included a small kitchen.

I've waited a while to do this review (since my visit) since I was very disappointed -- but I felt guilty as it wasn't really the fault of the hotel or its owner or staff. It is a super dog welcoming place: that's the only reason I sought it out. It's a cozy environment with rooms all nestled around the... More

We had a great time. The facilities were clean and we have everything we need. They have a BBQ for guests to use. It is a small place that you end getting to know everyone there. The dog was so relaxed that she was a different dog. There were dogs of all sizes and the off-leash policy was fine. They... More

Truly exceptional place to bring your dog. Feels like a bed and breakfast. Rooms are very comfortable, lovely continental breakfast, and our golden retriever enjoyed every minute of being off-leash. Great place to meet and interact with other dog owners, enjoy the mineral pool and hot spring pool, and take in amazing views by the fire pit outside. I'm pretty... More
