Found this hotel by talking to other guests at the Del Marcos hotel in Palm Springs. We took a chance and decided to check it out sight unseen with no prior reservations. Even though they were busy catering a private party the staff treated us as though we were the only ones there! Everything was fabulous and the room and...

Lisa, So glad that you found us and that we had a room for you at the last minute (not always the case). The internet is great for research but there is still no substitute for personal word-of-mouth referrals. Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure meeting you and we look forward to your return.

The room was lovely, terrace was nice but overlooked a backyard on one side and the courtyard on the other side. The breakfasts were delicious, the front desk people were so nice and helpful and there was ice water, ice tea and coffee in the breakfast room all day. The pool was very inviting and the courtyard was charming. I...

The hotel is small and charming. Despite the size, we never got the feeling that anything was missing. The staff made it constantly clear that they were there to help us and make the stay enjoyable. They were all friendly, accommodative, and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are a good size with all necessary comforts. We thoroughly enjoyed our...

We really enjoyed our stay at Spanish Garden Inn. Hotel has a European feel. Accommodations were very nice and included a balcony overlooking the grounds. Continental breakfast was delicious. Service was fantastic. Rented cruiser bikes from hotel so we could see the sights. We will return again!

We came here for our 30th anniversary for 4 days and was not disappointed. As you walk to the lobby from the free convenient underground parking, you can feel the decompressing occurring.
