90% love it
Friendly service since the '50s
This hotel has a 2 adult per room limit in order to keep the property an icon of halcyon days. Guests rave about the management and staff that keep the hotel cozy and welcoming.

      Horrible experience, strange/rude man
      The man who answered the phone was a complete jerk. He screamed "What?!" into the phone. I said "Is this The View"? He says "Yes, what do you want?" I said I'm calling about booking a room. Then he acted like I was an idiot for asking because it was Coachella weekend. I explained I was a potential customer and he didn't need to be rude. Then he said "If you knew who I was, you wouldn't say that." Then he hung up on me! This guy is a total looney toon. I called back to ask for the owner and he hung up on me again. I would never stay there now. I can't believe the rudeness. Unbelievable!

      I stayed at The View during the Coachella Music and Arts festival. When most resorts double or triple their costs The View not only kept their standard pricing but also honored a discount I found online. Upon arrival we were shown our room which was clean and update with modern touches such as a flat screen TV and free wifi. Our room also came with kitchen area which I found useful, since I didn't get back from the festival until after 2am most nights. The owners go out of there way to provide the best possible service from calling a cab to offering restaurants suggestions. I like that they asked guests if the sheets need to be changed, I think every little bit helps when a business makes an effort to go green. There was a modest breakfast offered that most of the guests took advantage of, I opted to check out various restaurants (Cheeky's, Norma's, and Rick's) Palm Springs had to offer. I look forward to returning to the View and spending more time relaxing at the property.

      lots of stars in the sky floating by...
      I stopped in when the new facade caught my eye. Well done, inside and out. Okay location in general, great set-back of about 1000 ft I'm guessing from Indian Canyon so no traffic noise at night and lots of stars.Bring your waterprook headset so you can floatin a pool and watch the stars travel past you. It is a terrific blend of mod+mid-century+motel Good luck fellas, you are off to a terrific start.

      New Place in Town
      I've had the pleasure of staying here twice over the Summer and enjoyed it. It's a fairly new gay resort, and some things are still being updated. The rooms range from a standard queen room to a full sized suite with full kitchen and separate bedroom. All rooms have Refigerators, microwaves, flat screen TV's and hardwood floors. Oh, and most rooms have a private patio. They are now serving a few items for a lite breakfast before starting your day. I stayed when it was still new, so there wasn't a lot of guests yet. If you go, tell the Manager, Gene, that Silver sent you.
