“Quaint, Private, Affordable and Adorable!”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

Went with a friend for a weekend out-of-town in sunny Palm Springs - we found this adorable and affordable hotel and loved our stay. We arrived after office hours but they were very welcoming, leaving our key and turning on the lights and heat in the poolside cabana to add comfort to our evening arrival. It was very clean, private, spacious, comfortable and the pool, patio furniture and hot tub added a wonderful retro-vibe. Very nice to look out on or lay and read a book by the pool. We visited in late February and there were beautiful spring flowers planted all around the property. The hotel has parking and we even had our own backyard. Prices were very affordable. The office offers up free postcards, movies to take back to your room or books to borrow for your stay - nice touch. Would be a great place for extended stay guests. The hotel is a little bit off the main strip but we walked into town one night no problem and it was a $6 cab ride to anything we felt like seeing downtown so not far away.

Quiet and charming - I highly recommend.
Thanks for the great stay! If we return to Palm Springs we will definitely stay there again.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with friends

Second stay at APITSGH and it just gets better and better. Quiet, clean, centrally located; this is the best destination in Palm Springs if you want a kitchen, sitting room and accommodations for the entire family. The ending to our day was grilling out by the pool and enjoying our dinner al fresco. The other feature I particularly enjoy is the walking path just out the back gate.

Room Tip: Some have bigger kitchens, and the patio is great for traveling with your animal. Look on their sit...

Very comfortable, relaxing place, with a lovely garden and pool, and great front desk staff. Altogether the place feels like it's straight from the 50s/60s (with all modern comfort though, wifi etc), it's a bit surreal but also charming and somehow exotic (particularly if you live in a big, modern city).

Room Tip: Rooms that face the garden/pool have a nice view; rooms that don't give you more privacy.

A Place in the Sun was reccommended by a friend. It met every expectation and more! This is the best ever place for a girls trip, so relaxing and everyone is so friendly..we even enjoyed Shadow the kitty's visit every night. I couldn't take enough pictures of the grounds, flowers and our patio. I have already told all of my friends about it.

Room Tip: Unit 18 was perfect for us, 2 bedroom and 2 bath. I'm thinking there isn't a bad room

From the moment you walk into the majestic gardens surrounding the saline pool at A Place in the Sun you are transported back to a relaxed time. A time before constant cell phones. You see interesting people reading books by the pool. The rooms are really comfortable and have everything you need. The kitchens are fantastic with one trip to Trader Joes you are set for the week. At night groups use the grills and exchange recipes. The older crowd is friendly and loved watching our girls play with flowers and make up games where they chased hummingbirds that surround the gardens. It is quiet. It is old school. Every day you can go help yourself to a slice of bundt cake in the office. The owners remember you and are welcoming.
We spent 5 days there and longed for more, but the profound relaxation it provided has carried me throught the last month.

my entire family and i traveled to palm springs for the first time this spring break. we were celebrating the marriage of my parents and my husbands parents - 90 years of marriage together! this place is amazing! perfect location, less than 10 minutes from downtown palm springs and anything you could want (grocery, shops, restaurants, etc). we did travel 25-30 minutes away for a few sites and shopping, but it was no big deal at all. the rooms are dated but they are super charming and have everything you need. we had all the amenities we could need - even enough to cook out on the grille and have a great family gathering. this place is family and dog friendly, except for other guests who do not like kids (maybe they should go to an "adults only" place???). the owners and staff are fantastic - the only negative is that some of the visitors are not keen on kids and make it known - that is truly my only complaint. they even let me use their laundry room at no charge! the rooms and grounds are spacious and the pool is perfect (heated and gets plenty of sun). most relaxing trip ever!

Room Tip: we stayed in the 2 bedroom bungalo which is like a small house - plenty of room for our family of 5...
