Knew we were in trouble as soon as we arrived. The carpet in the front lobby was torn and actually missing in places. The gentleman who greeted us was friendly enough and helpful but stated the office closes early and if we needed anything we would need to contact the front desk of the hotel next door. After being shown...

Dear Disappointed Guest, Naturally we are sad to see your comments on the property. We take your comments to heart and we are doing everything we can to keep this lovely legend looking spectacular until the official renovation begins.

Let's start with the pluses... Great location; 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants and morning coffee. Beautiful scenery, and a very nice staff. On the limitations, the property is tired. Pool tiles lifting, room fixtures in disrepair, and and old, noisy compact air conditioner. The continental breakfast was underwhelming. We will pass on this property until they complete a refresh.

Dear Valued Guest, We appreciate your comments on the scenery and our friendly staff. We are actually diligently working on refreshing as much as possible before the renovation of the property. We have invested in new linens and terry, created a more robust breakfast offering, and have been working in every guest room to ensure the best possible guest experience....

How sad...We are extremely disappointed in this "adjustment period" between the old owner and new owners (the Triada of Palm Springs). Although, the new owners have owned this property for several months, they have declined to take any responsibility for the sad deterioration of this once beloved hotel. As we entered the lobby, we should have immediately turned around. The...

Dear Sad Guest, Naturally, we are sad to see your comments on the Movie Colony. This property is a lovely legend and will soon be restored to its Mid-Century Modern beginnings. You may be unaware that the lobby has always closed at the Movie Colony, we have increased service by offering the amenities of the Triada next door so no...

Booked based on all of the positive reviews from people who come back year after year.

Dear Lovely Guest, Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. The Movie Colony Hotel is currently a diamond in the rough, but still has incredible history and architecture to its many claims. The ownership of Triada Palm Springs bought The Movie Colony Hotel a few months ago, and hopes to restore it to its original glory. I...

If you stayed at this hotel before as I had, do not plan a return. New owners of the Movie Colony hotel really let the place go. The pool is poorly heated, the continental breakfast is no longer worth waking up for. Dirty floors with dust blowing across the room like tumbleweed and moldy showers is all the evidence one...

Dear Valued Guest, The goal of the new ownership was to keep the integrity of the Movie Colony Hotel, and to not shake things up until a distinct new design was in place. Nothing has been changed as of yet, the rooms, the pool, the housekeeping staff, and the complimentary breakfast. We have even attempted to increase overall service by...

Dear Perfect Guest, What an incredibly engaging and descriptive review! I am so glad that the Movie Colony was able to deliver with your guest experience. The hotel maintains its elusive calmness for much needed relaxation, and now includes all the services from our sister hotel, the Triada Palm Springs next door. I love to hear that the Movie Colony...

Had high hopes for the Movie Colony. Web site looked great. Super helpful staff making reservations. But really disappointed right from the check in. Really looks like nobody cares.

Dear High Hopes, I am sorry to see your poor perception of The Movie Colony Hotel. The staff truly do care, and take pride in the history and have been loyal to the hotel for many years.

Great location! Just steps away from Palm Springs' hip Design District with it's great shops and restaurants. The hotel is not "flashy" and is not a magnet for the "to see & be seen" crowd, which is exactly what I was looking for. The hotel was due for an "update," which the manager informed me was in the plans for...

Used to stay here all the time with my husband when we come to Palm Springs.
