This little boutique hotel is on the outskirts of Desert Hot Springs, a town that is rather blah and a bit run down in areas. You would never know any of that while staying at Hope Springs. It's a cute little mid-century modern place, with wonderful hot springs to soak your troubles away. The place is clean and well maintained, the rooms are bare, but in a stylish modern way. The beds are super comfortable. There's only ten rooms, so you don't feel like you're in some faceless, impersonal large hotel. Chloe, the manager, was very nice and helpful. There is a very friendly cat that hangs out on the property, and may even try to enter your room if you're not paying attention! A very nice continental breakfast is served in the mornings. There's a common kitchen area, which from what I remember, doesn't have a stove, but there's a toaster and microwave. You're about 40 mins from the north-west entrance to Joshua Tree National Monument, and about 15 mins away from Palm Springs. There's aren't any restaurants nearby, but there's a helpful list of restaurants given, and I recommend driving into one of the suggested Palm Springs restaurants to eat. They offer spa services, but you need to order it 48 hours in advance. It's really a terrific gem, which gets most of it's business through word of mouth.
