A Place in the Sun Garden Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2012

My boyfriend and I wanted a relaxing getaway to Palm Springs and we couldnt have picked a more perfect place! We were upgraded to a one bedroom bungalow when we arrived- thank you Joe! The bungalow was spacious and clean, including the kitchen and bathroom. You can see the owners really take pride in keeping this place well maintained. Charming place - view of the mountains is calming. Only a 5 minute drive to downtown. Would definitely come back!

Seven members of our family stayed in the large bungalow which accommodated us all very well. We observed so many "extras" available to us in "our" bungalow and enjoyed every minute of our time there.

The grounds were immaculate and beautiful. The swimming pool, putting green and Jacuzzi, were appreciated by all of us, including our 6-year-old granddaughter.

We can't agree more with the many positive reviews already afforded A Place In the Sun and look forward to returning.

Yes, the perfect place...if you appreciate lovely rooms, quiet ambiance, a wonderful staff...perfectly cared for pool and hot tub...and oh the view of the mountains, the birds, flowers, and the stars at night. Can't wait to return!

Let you know when to turn over. Great to meet old friends, hear Norma's laugh and see Joe.

Room Tip: Rooms with unshared walls are better.

Enjoyed every minute at A Place in the Sun. Beautiful grounds and nice rooms. Continental breakfast was great. Delicious home made lemon bars. Ron and Norma made you feel very welcome. Plan on coming back here someday. Ann and Dave Landis

This is the kind of place you don't want others to find out. It is that authentic and as charming as the pictures show. Cute decor, super clean and good smelling (despite any previous pets). So quiet you can hear the birds; not noisy neighbors or the whir of weed whips as with the major desert resorts at the crack of dawn. Owners Norma and Ron are welcoming. Their office is stocked with free sweets and a lending library of DVDs. And, yes, they have "A Place in the Sun" on both DVD and VHS. Caution: The film is vintage Liz Taylor; not an Annette Funicello experience! There was even a Taylor look-alike being filmed for a portrait book during our stay.
Nice guests, most of them repeat customers. Nice to have the pet option, and grilling area allowed time to linger like the old days. Meeting guests from around the country. It's not a deal-breaker for me, but my 15-year-old never swam in the small-size pool. He favors more of an Olympic, resort-size pool. This may be something to consider if you have athletic types in your group. I was able to do some water exercise, and I am a teacher professionally. It was fine for that on a small scale. We would definitely stay here again. Loved the vibe, overall, of casual throwback desert studio escape days.

Room Tip: If the outdoor enclosed private patio is important, choose room larger than standard studio.

A Place In the Sun is near and dear to our family's heart. We have stayed in several rooms and have never had anything less than an amazing vacation. The grounds our beautiful, pool amazing and the stay relaxing and refreshing. The staff is amazingly resourceful, supportive and accomodative. Our kids call it "our hotel". Thank you again for a wonderful vacation!

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom bungalows are more than spacious enough for a family of four. The two bedroom is HUGE...
