We love the clean, relaxing waters in the pools at this resort. The property is aging and has been fixed up nicely, but each time we visit we find some little, relatively insignificant evidence that maintenance is a challenge. However, the beds and pillows are comfortable, rooms are clean, new TVs are great. The little cafe serves very nice meals...

Pools: The mineral pools were very enjoyable and I appreciated the retro style of the entire place. There were a couple of maintenance issues, like, the ladies locker room had 3 showers and 2 of them were in poor working condition. Otherwise the pool area is great and I like that its open 24 hours. Room: I got a room...

The room smelled like smoke when we arrived, and I got charged over 200 extra then I was supposed to be, I had to go to the office a couple of times to have the situation fix. Among thses distractions we really appreciated the wonderful customer service provided. As well as the delicious meal that were being sold.

Just spent my 2nd visit at the Desert Hot Springs Spa Hotel. This is really a guilty pleasure for me, as I live in the mountains, and went to get away from the cold and snow. The staff is very helpful and friendly, from the front desk staff, to the pool people, to the cafe staff. Overall though, 8 pools...

The room smelled like smoke, the beds were hard. Electrical outlets did n ot work in places. Food in restaurant was excellent and so was the service. You people really need an elevator. People who come to the spa are usually there because they are crippled or have aching joints, I hurt even worse after doing the stairs.

The management should have been so ashamed of this facility (this room) that they would not in clear conscience allow a guest to occupy it. The carpets were stained. The floor tiles were cracked. There was mold forming on the bathroom wall. The shower diverter lever broke off. There were no washcloths. There was no in-room information. There was a...

We've been staying at DHS for about 30 years. Always enjoyable. The only suggestion is to fix some of the carpeting in the rooms. And either have an alarm clock in the room or wake up service. Other than that everyone is nice and the place Is very relaxing . We love the pools.
