“Pleasant surprise. Great place to relax”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We were pleasantly surprised by the simple but fabulous stay we had at Hope Springs Resort. Rooms are clean and simple. Breakfast was delicious and made with organic and great ingredients. We cooked at the community grill and kitchen. We loved the 3 pools with hot spring water. Overall a fantastic place we will recommend to all our friends.

Sweet quiet minimal. If you really just want a break this is a cool place to sit by the pool and hot springs. Rooms are minimal - no phone, no TV, no kids, no noise, only 1 chair kind of place. Nothing fancy at all, simple. Breakfast is good. Desert Hot Springs is kind of a pit however. So far we've had to go into Palm Springs for everything, don't bother with any restaurants in DHS. They're depressing actually. So if you want off the beaten path with no distractions, this place is good. Bathrooms, and the whole place, are very 70s. But water pressure is good. I would come back but next time with a good bottle of wine and my own snacks.

Room Tip: You don't want to be next to the outdoor grill.

I have mixed feelings about this place. The place itself is so charming, unique, and retro cool. They provide Malin + Goetz products for your toiletries and some rooms come with an attached kitchen. The place itself was great and clean.

Unfortunately, the manager made our stay at Hope Springs very uncomfortable. I wouldn't mind the manager at all if we could have avoided her However, because Hope Springs is small and quaint, there is no avoiding her. The manager was gruff, unfriendly (until it was time to pay), and very unwelcoming.

We stayed at Hope Springs the week between Christmas and New Years and it was the perfect getaway. My day started with a dip in the hot mineral pool, then a quick swim. Nancy put out a lovely spread of fruit, eggs, breads, dates etc... each morning. She even made a special meal for my gluten free dairy free traveling companion. We spent most of our days hiking in Joshua Tree (our host set us up with maps, directions and the scoop on the best lunch spots - we ate at the sisters twice!), then headed back to the pools for another dip and a glass of wine. If you want glitz and people watching head to the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. If you want a quiet getaway you gotta stay at Hope. Minimalist thoughtful design, no t.v.s in the rooms (a plus), a great place to relax.

my partner and i stayed for two amazing days at this little gem. practically had it all to ourselves! the room was exactly what we wanted....big bed, nice sheets, no distractions, and lots of privacy. we booked a room with a kitchen which was great because they also have a fabulous barbeque area where we had dinner under that amazing desert sky. The hot springs were the highlight! daily breakfast was beautiful with all the things one could want or need....gourmet coffee, fruits, yogurt, granola, beautiful breads, cheeses, and a different fresh egg dish each day, included in the rate! the manager was extremely sweet and accomodating. the only thing i think needs a little improvement are the showers.....a bit small.

Hope Springs is a magical place. I got engaged here...stayed here when I got married...have been going since the second month they opened and have brought many friends. The original design of the rooms forces one into a zen experience. Minimalist and modern serene and soothing. When I need to get away from it all this is where I go. Get a kitchen if you can-there aren't many great restaurants in the area.
