A Place in the Sun doesn't have a lot of rooms, it doesn't have a restaurant, it doesn't have a noisy nightclub, it isn't in the middle of a busy downtown area, and it doesn't even have a spiffy outside facade.
What it does have is a delightful informal family atmosphere, and clean, attractive, and quiet rooms. We stayed here for the first time in February 2005, unfortunately for only a few days but I can tell you that we will be back! Coming from New Hampshire, we have been used to going to Florida in the middle of the snow season (along with half the East Coast population). No longer; we loved being able to walk the Indian Canyons and the trails of the Joshua Tree National Park, and we could reach the Park in a couple of hours.
Besides the morning snacks in the office and the cheerful smile of Norma there, we also found other neat things to do in the Palm Springs area. Who knows, we might even think about taking up golf when we run out of trails to walk.
