This is a nice, well located small inn. Rooms are generous, there is a nice courtyard with a heated pool. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Overall a very good value. Do be aware that the cancellation policy is strict and your cc will be charged in full before you arrive. Also, unless you do require a full ADA...

Dear Charlie W We so much enjoyed your music on the piano, so much that we are building a "Music room" for guests like you to come and play. This will be a major change in the hotel and will include a roof top lounge with a 360 degree view of the mountains for a place to have cocktails (with...

Wonderful stay. The gardens are beautiful and the property is so peaceful. Only took off one star because the shower was a little weird. The shower head was bizarrely high and at a weird angle that made showering without getting your hair wet impossible. Still, it wouldn't impeded us from staying here again. We'll definitely be repeat visitors!

I travel quite a bit but this boutique hotel is by far the best and most relaxing hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms are so clean. In fact, the whole place is immaculate. The best part though is when the owners come out and spend time with you sharing great stories about their careers in musical theater. They...

The Colt's Lodge is my favorite place in the entire desert area. What a classy and refined place. Based in a historical lodge it was redesigned and redone from scratch so you get brand new 5 star accommodation. Even the amenities in the boutique hotel are of a premium A-List resort. The heated pool and jacuzzi are 24/7, the breakfast...

The Colt's Lodge was a little slice of heaven. Everything was organized and well thought out, from the moment we checked into the hotel. Our room was beautiful, spacious, and nicely decorated. The pool was beautiful, and there was not a thing out of place...spic and span, but totally relaxed. This was off season in Palm Springs, but it did...
