This was our third time staying at the Orbit In-we love it here! Such a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. The rooms are fun and spot-on, design-wise. Breakfast and Orbitinis around the pool are highlights of the day. The neighborhood is quiet yet within walking distance of nightlife and restaurants. I will never stay anywhere else in Palm Springs.

What a friendly place. Bill and Eric who run the place couldn't be more welcoming. A great part of the place is Orbitini Hour at 5pm each day. A lovely way to get to meet the others guests. Met several interesting people over our stay but particular mention must go to Jack from Jersey. Good to meet you, Jack. The...

The Orbit In was absolutely amazing! It was everything I imagined. Amazing room, beautiful pool with palm trees, flowers and mountain views. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. They gave us many suggestions on what to do and where to eat. The breakfast was just right and the orbitini hour was so fun! I would absolutely stay here...

The Orbit In was recommended to me by a co-worker and I am so happy we chose to stay here!- everything about this small boutique "hotel" was fabulous! The rooms are authentic to the style of mid century modern and have a very cool vibe. Also, they are kept impeccably clean! The housekeeping staff do a great job keeping everything...

The Orbit In (yep, there's only one "N") is fantastic. Here's why: 1. The location. It's less than three blocks from downtown Palm Springs. So you can walk to all the shops, museums, and restaurants. Having said that, it's extremely quiet. 2. The hotel itself. It's a mid-century modern motel, restored and refurbished with impeccable levels of comfort, taste, and...

There is a reason 99.9% of the reviews are good - this is a very hip, adult spot in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in PS. Super friendly and enthusiastic staff makes for a great vibe. Each room is different, ask for descriptions. International flavor with lots of return visitors. Nice continental breakfast and and really cool happy hour...

From the moment we were greeted at the Orbit In- it just happened to be "Orbitini Hour"- we felt welcomed, pampered, and were treated like very special guests. This hotel is a mid-century modern lover's nirvana! The rooms are appropriately decorated, complete with record-players and a vast selection of albums. Furniture was very comfortable and the kitchenette came in handy....

We adore Orbit In and stay here every chance we get. We've even started coming to Palm Springs at times other than our annual Modernism Week trek in order to stay at our home away from home. What's not to love? Preserved mid-century boutique hotel, owners and staff you know by name and greet with a hug, daily Orbitini hour...

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the Orbit In Hotel. We stayed for 3 days/2 nights in February 2017, and found the accommodations and staff to be top notch. The amenities, from breakfast, to happy hour, to 24/7 beverage bar, etc., were all most appreciated. The inn is close to the main street, should you wish to...

If you want a quaint, retro boutique hotel, then the Orbit In is the place to stay! The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere has a fun retro vibe. The rooms are very quiet and peaceful. Plus, you can miss the complimentary happy hour...make sure to order their Orbitini! Yum!
