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!

I can't say enough good things. The hotel is small, small but stylish pool area, a great intimate cocktail hour with trademark "Orbitinis". The personal nature of staff looms large here. I stayed in the smallest room, which was very nice and authentic to MCM period. Very quiet and clean. Pool is heated and a small jacuzzi is privately tucked...

There are so many great boutique hotels in Palm Springs that it is hard to stand out over some. We loved our sizeable room, the retro decor including the pink bathroom, the beautiful pool, the very friendly service and the breakfasts available around the pool.

My wife really ribbed me about booking at this hotel, but it was outstanding. "Mid-century architecture" seemed like the "Jetsons" without jet packs. It couldn't have been a more relaxing place to stay for a week and I haven't spent so much time in a pool without swimming laps since I was in my teens. The hosts were accommodating and...

I travel a lot and prefer nice hotels. This was wonderful. Bed super comfy. Step back in time for design, but all super clean and cool. Loved having a room look out on the pool patio..small boutique hotel and fun to meet the few people lucky enough to have a room. Great location to walk. And Bill, owner and manager,...

This place was disappointing for the price. The courtyard is very small and all rooms face it, so it is noisy. If you like to sleep-in and there are guests eating breakfast outside, you will hear every word. Unfortunately, during my stay a very loud guest was outside in the early morning hours. My room had a carpet and smelled...

I knew the mid-century modern furnishings would evoke nostalgia, but the motel was also a great place to stay. At the end of a quiet, palm and bougainvillea lined street not far from the center of town, this lovingly restored motel has modern amenities in mid-century disguise. The rooms circle a heated swimming pool, surrounded by chairs in which to...

What a wonderful little hotel. T he vibe was groovy. The mid-century rooms are decorated with authentic 1950s furnishings and there are many cool touches including turntables with vintage record albums, pink tiled bathrooms, and a fireplace in one suite. The beds were super comfortable, the rooms were very quiet, the pool was beautiful and warm, and the views are...

On the long, hot drive to Phoenix from SF,we decided that we needed to take a break. From Tripadvisor's sterling recommendations, I called and booked for the same day. (I'd like to keep this place to ourselves, but Bill and the rest of the staff deserve your business). Set against the mountains, the location is stunning. What a happy surprise...
