Most Relaxing Place I Ever Stayed At ! Love the large bungalows and gardens and pool.

Reviewed 30 november, 2021

I found this treasure by word of mouth by cafe jasmine in the city of palm springs. You walk in a lush palm tree garden with many trees and amazing large bungalows with their own private walled in gardens. The units even offer kitchens and indoor and outdoor dining spaces and huge bedrooms with a king size bed. I loved the decoration and two tv's so we could both watch what we liked most. It is amazing right here. The panoramic mountain views are insane and the proximity to the cool restaurants helps to get the most into your palm springs time. Felt very safe with the outdoor entry and super clean unit and staff was so friendly, truly distanced but always there if you need them.

If I could give this property a zero, I would. First of all, don’t expect an office or any contact other than a text or phone conversation when they choose to answer. We arrived and called the phone number on record, and were told we were upgraded to The Elizabeth Taylor Suite! So far, sounds good, right? We were given a gate code and lock box code for the key. We opened the door to discover the bed was an old hide a bed, which was made up and the stained couch cushions were stacked up as a headboard. We called the number back and explained this was not acceptable, so he gave us the lockbox code for the studio next door. Upon opening the door we instantly smelled stale urine. Upon trying to call again, no answer. We received a text asking us to text as he was on the other line. I text explained that the room was not acceptable, explained the odor and requested a refund …. SILENCE until I text two more times noting I would like confirmation that we would receive a refund. Late that night I received a response saying the rooms are all sanitized with environmentally safe products, blah,blah, blah and noting he would not refund our balance. We are not picky travelers but trust me … this was the worst property I have ever seen! We were initially impressed with the pictures online and thought it looked quaint. It is horrible, however they must have an amazing photographer! Granted, I made the reservation hastily as I have since googled the property to find several very negative reviews. The response to any negative review is the deflect by coming up with excuses to blame the customer. The hospitality industry is based on customer reviews, word of mouth and repeat business. Trust that we will tell everyone we know to steer clear of this business. Extremely unprofessional! The sad honest truth is that if they paid any attention to customer reviews and input they could have an amazing property. Unfortunately they are not interested.

So we arrived at 10pm - the gate was locked - 3 phone calls made to get access to our room. No staff on site. The room way tiny - it claimed premlum bedding - but was more like an olld peoples hostel for homeless people. The bathroom was horrendous... broken tile - no soap - had to use shampoo to wash myself.... the door locks were complicated - if there was a fire we would struggle to escape. No coffee... but there were coffee filters.... The flies in the room seemed happy enough...

Love this place!

Everything is authentically mid-century so it's very cute without being over-the-top imitation chi-chi. Shout out to the housekeepers: this place was immaculately clean. Even the tile and grout in the bathroom was gleaming. Very comfortable stay, friendly staff.

Checking out Midcentury Modern architecture in Palm Springs i loved the discovery of the Place in the Sun. Feels like a Palace in the sun. Room was awesome, fresh and bright and super grounds. The guys put a lot of work in this hotel and its very relaxing. People caring and a quiet place. Amenities are superb and i wanna be back soon. Its a special place for sure and attracts artists and cool people i feel. Good vibes. Beds extremely comfy, full kitchen and also so much square footage for a good price. Oh and with the pandemic in my memory i like my own bungalow, own outdoor entry nobody touches, own garden patio and the big garden so you can space out all day and night. Feels clean and safe! Good job guys … oh and nightlights are pretty too
