Desert Hot Springs is a fascinating town. Hope Springs was fascinating too. It was built in the 50s and still had a lot of charm. It was nice to not have a TV in the room. Upon arrival, read right outside our room while the afternoon wind whipped the palms about. It was cool to watch the wind in the trees. Enjoyed the enclosed pool, the hottest of them all with Carbon the cat sitting by our side. Separate towels and robes are provided to enjoy the pools. We used the BBQ area to make a meal and connect with each other. We stayed on a Saturday night and were serenaded by Koreans staying in the motel next door. Their merriment extended a wee bit after 10 pm.
Breakfast was ok for me. I enjoyed the cuties, walnut and cranberry toast with butter.
Overall, charming place to stay with a lot of character. Just a few areas for the staff at Hope Springs to address: making sure the ovens and stove coils work with the rooms that have a kitchenette, cleaning the chairs in the room.
