Lovely Mid-Century Modern Hotel in a great location

Date of Visit: Wednesday, Dec 11th, 2019 Rooms: 17 & 24 This hotel is a beautiful property with a community feel to it. It is an adult-only hotel, with a lovely centre courtyard, lounge area and pool. There is a lovely firepit where you can relax and enjoy a drink. The rooms are on 2 levels - and some rooms have balconies off of the suite. The room we had did have a balcony with several lounge chairs and tables overlooking the courtyard. The Service at the hotel was very good. When we arrived, our hotel front desk was closed for the night, but the sister hotel next door was processing check-ins. The front desk clerk there was very friendly, entertaining, and engaging. When we checked out, our front desk person was also very friendly and entertaining. The rooms are very spacious and well decorated. The furniture and décor are all fitting in the retro 50's style that palm springs are known for. The bed was very big and comfortable, with very nice linens and comfortable pillows. The bathroom was huge, modern, and beautifully decorated. The shower was large and spacious, and the shower head was very high which is good for a traveller that is over 6 feet tall. There is a fridge, microwave, coffee maker in the room, as well as a wall safe, and a bath robe to use at the pool. The Wifi: Free service, with good signal - I had no issues with updating my travel blog while there. There is a continental breakfast in the centre courtyard, but unfortunately, I can't describe it properly as there was nothing there when we went down - even though it was before the end of the serving time. It appeared to include bread products, cereals, coffee, tea, juices, and a few other things, but I can't be specific. Parking for the hotel is free - but limited, but they do make accommodations for their guests. Pool and Hot tub are both open 24 hours and well maintained. This was our first trip to Palm Springs, and this hotel made our stay a lot more enjoyable. It is a lovely place to stay. We will definitely stay here again if and when we return to Palm Springs

Great Location-Spotless!

Yes, the "breakfast" is a joke, but that's to be expected. With only 17 rooms, it's spotlessly clean, comfortable, and private. It's also within walking distance to anything in downtown PS, including all the bars and restaurants on Palm Canyon Drive. Nate at the front desk is awesome; helpful, professional, and personable. My wife and I are always trying to find unique and practical places to stay when in PA. The Movie Colony Hotel checks off all the boxes. I highly recommend this property

Simple and clean, fabulous location

Simple and clean in a fabulous location. I was a bit nervous after reading some of the reviews, but I had a totally pleasant stay. Great place to stay solo, as the location is very central for walking/bike riding. Staff friendly and helpful. Skip the included breakfast and head to Cheeky's, Palm Spring's all day breakfast spot 1 block away

Cute, No Frills Hotel

The Movie Colony Hotel was conveniently located, mid-century adorable and very clean. The staff was really friendly. A couple of issues - my room was not ready until 30 minutes after check-in time, which normally would not have been an issue, but I had to get ready for an event and be out the door at 4:30; the air conditioning is old and very (very!) loud, it literally goes on and off every few minutes causing a power surge with the TV and my phone charger. Parking is very limited and after I came back from my event there was no parking available. The front desk closes at 5:30 and so when I called, I got the hotel next door and they finally found me a spot. There was no water available for purchase and though they keep a container of infused water outdoors, no one had refilled it. The location is great - at the start of downtown and near great restaurants and shops. And, again very clean and they have a friendly staff
