If this place was located somewhere outside of California, I would return again and again!
That being said, I loved it, what I saw of it. The pool(s) area seemed huge but I explored only 2 of the hot tubs - it was after dark. Plenty of chairs for lounging during the daytime.
I also had a drink and appetizers at the bar - deliciousness, and very reasonably price. The bartender was very nice.

Deep tissue massage with Rosalinda
When you go and get a deep tissue massage, go and request Rosalinda. Seriously she does one fantastic massage. Next time I'm there I will only request her. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. She has 20 years of experience. One amazing soul.

Finally!! A business that prides itself on service.
I have never seen so many employees at a hotel at once; zipping around with smiles while cleaning, maintaining, and serving. At all hours, there was someone walking through the pool area to check on guests and make sure that the temps of the different pools were just right. Adam started our mornings out with charisma and stellar service. The food was tasty and really affordable as well.
Pro tips: The hotel also owns the Microbuddery Dispensary and when you stay here you get 40 percent off + FREE delivery!!
The fried appetizers (including calamari) was deep fried with a thick batter, so I didn't care for them much . The coconut shrimp was decent. Add turkey to the tomato/avocado.

Quirky at best, old and run down at worst
Let's be real, you're here for the hot tubs and they do deliver on that front. I mean, where else in California can you go where there is a *public* pool open 24/7?! Not a lot of places.
I did want to say that the hottest tub tops out at 104 or something, so, if you were looking for bath water or a spa-type experience, its not here. Just some sorta warm water in pools of varying sizes. Maybe at their actual spa its hotter and nicer, but not main outdoor tubs. The weekend I went was in October so maybe it feels better when it is actually 120 degrees outside. The other guests there were quite nice - everyone kept to themselves. There were no party animals or too many kids (they were around though) or creeps lurking around. Different ages, ethnicities and sexes of all shapes and sizes, so I never felt uncomfortable.
The rest of the experience was...meh. Saying that the rooms are dated is an understatement. They are straight out of the 90s. The carpet was gross looking and stunk with the feet of thousands of travellers past. The couch in our room was not something I felt too comfortable sitting on - it was stained and misshapen and felt like a spring was going to impale me in the butt. There were spots on the balcony where the floor was warping and that was the part that felt the most dangerous - like you were gonna sink right through the floor. There were just a ton of inconveniences like how the phone did not work AT ALL so there was no way to get anything or questions answered without going back to the front desk. There were also no pool towels - you had to use the bath towels they gave you in the room or bring your own.
They do give you an empty mini fridge so you can easily store drinks and small foods in there. From our interactions with other guests, it would be wise to head to the market beforehand and grab some drinks and snacks before heading to the room. The restaurant looked ok but if you are not in the mood for italian food (which we werent) you'd want to grab something before you head in to Desert Hot Springs.
The City of Desert Hot springs is unfortunately Palm Springs not as well off sister so you'd be hard pressed to find any quality night life if you dont want to head all the way in to Palm Springs (which downtown is about a 30 min drive away). We ended up with fast food and grocery store booze at 10pm on our 1 night there. But its OK for what you pay - just...dont expect the glamor of Palm Springs proper.

best resort in Palm Springs and great getaway from a busy city life
I came here with my daughter at the end of September 2022. We love this place and try to come here once or twice a year and always stay here! It became a tradition. We love the pools with natural hot springs water, they have 9 different pools, all with different temperatures from cooler to hot ones. Cooler big pool is still warm and pleasant for the day time and swimming and smaller spas with hot water are amazing when you get cold or at night all year round! The best part is the eyes and skin don't dry up because it's natural mineral water. My daughter has asthma and asthma and chlorine don't work well together but here with mineral water her asthma never gets triggered. There are some people that come here for a day with a day pass as treatment. Our friends visited us too during our stay with day passes, kids enjoyed the pool! There is a nice Italian restaurant there and you can order food or drinks to eat by the pool as well if you don't wanna eat at the restaurant. Can't wait to be back!
