I enjoyed my stay at the Place in the Sun. I got there late at night to find everything set up perfectly for me. It was like a little relaxing Oasis. Just what I needed! The next morning I had a wonderful breakfast there. Met the owners and the staff it felt like family. Thank you for a wonderful time!...

We keep coming back to OUR Place in the Sun! Nice rooms, nice people, peaceful and quiet. The neighborhood is nice for a morning walk. And the last time we went they had a special dinner open for all guests. That's all we need!

A Place in the Sun offered us a peaceful, clean, simple yet elegant place to relax while in Palm Springs. Basically it is an efficiency apartment for the price of a hotel room, with a great pool, breakfast & friendly staff. Loved it & will definately stay there when we return to the area!

The first thing we do each morning is check out our reviews. What a way for us to start the day....that is by reading what you wrote about what we offer and the manner in which we serve....our greatest asset....our clientele. We look forward to your next visit!

Love this hotel. It is so quaint, quiet and friendly. Love Michael, who was on property last weekend working. He was so helpful, especially with my yappy dog. He put out a very nice breakfast by the pool each morning and had towels in our room waiting for us because we were a late check in. Can't wait to return!

A Place in the Sun is absolutely beautiful! The rooms have been nicely rehabbed with a perfect blend of vintage and modern. There is still some visible wear and tear, but nothing to cry about. The room was clean, beds were comfy, and the breakfast spread was amazing! The garden courtyard is spectacular, and the hot tub was fabulous after...

This is a hidden gem! From the beginning working with Michael to get the right rooms to the end and checking out with him it was perfect.

Been going for years. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Pet friendly, and every place is like a home, with everything I need, plus most units have a safe enclosed yard - with a lawn! They really care, and I love their social little breakfast on weekends during the winter months.

Great pool.....lovely continental breakfast.....wonderful rooms. We had a family reunion with sisters, cousins, and spouses and children. It was a great place to gather, and wonderful for the younger crowd to leave for lunch or cocktails at dusk, and then gather again.........The kitchens were wonderful and served all of our needs......stocked cabinets, too!! Everything was GREAT!!!
