We stayed at many places during our trip on the westcoast. This was by far the best. Nice location, a lot of effort on detail and design, great service. Perfect to enjoy some relaxing days in Palm Springs. Very nice pool and garden / barbecue area.

I hesitate to write this review for it will become so packed and booked I will not be able to come back! This place is a DREAM! It's quiet, serene, clean, comfy, home-y, modern, well-planned, great parking, central to everything, and the room is wonderful! We stayed in Room #1 and it is my favorite room. I must return to...

A fab hotel - only 10 rooms or so, most of which are poolside. Pushbikes available foc to see the surrounding area. Buffet breakfast was very good and the staff that we met were most helpful. Free parking as well. Overall 10/10

This is a small hotel with just 11 rooms. The entrance is immediately apparent, but we understand that is being addressed, car parking is outside the walled hotel area. On walking through either of the doors from the street you are presented with beautiful gardens, pool, hot tub, BBQ area, outside dining area, cycles, sun loungers, bowls area and seating...

What a lovely surprise. A friend had stayed here and told us how great it was, so we booked it for 3 nights on a recent trip. We were so wonderfully glad we did. It's a jewel. Gorgeous gardens, Serene and colorful. Great continental breakfast...fabulous hosts. Rooms are compact but so comfortable. Guests needs have been well thought through.

What a great little hotel! Nice breakfast bar, easy access to downtown, very quiet and private feeling. We had a little private deck out back which was really nice. I also enjoyed how quiet the pool area was. We were able to really enjoy hanging out late night- it's 24hrs, and there was hardly a peep. It was romantic at...

Fabulous boutique hotel. Room, pool, breakfast, service, staff were all superb. Been many places around the world and this one of top 5. We arrived to the quickest checkin ever. Just what you need after a long drive. Pool quiet, stunning backdrop as scenery. Beautiful garden to take breakfast in. Just perfect

The Colt's Lodge is an amazing little paradise off the main drag in Palm Springs. We spent a family weekend here and plan to make it an annual trip. The owners have done a fantastic job creating a little place of solitude filled with an outdoor BBQ area, fire pit with comfy seating, a 24-hour heated pool, beach cruiser bikes...
