We weren't sure what to expect from Desert Hot Springs. The town itself was a bit underwhelming, but the El Morocco exceeded expectations. For the price, it was an amazing getaway and something really different. Located in an unassuming residential area, the hotel is a hidden gem that surprises from the moment you open the door. From the nice amenities - free snacks, DVDs, a lounge stocked with magazines and Casablanca on a loop - to the fully modernized rooms, there was something fun around every corner. Lots of little private areas, from the fire pit to adobe fire places to the whole side garden with bocce ball, chess, hammocks and even a yoga tent, make this one of the most romantic escapes in the desert. Our room was large and one room had a circular bed draped in sheer curtains..super cool! The Morocco-tinis at happy hour were plentiful and the hot spring pool and hot tub were large enough that they felt private. Overall, it exceeded our expectations and for the price was an amazing getaway. I suggest that the very attentive front desk staff learn a little more about local hikes and activities as well as restaurant options. But beyond that, no complaints...only a terrific experience and one we will hopefully enjoy again and again!
