Relaxing Hideaway in the Desert!
East Canyon is an relaxing getaway, particularly for a couple. Couples ranging from their 20s to their 60s were there, comfortably, together. There are only about 12 rooms which keeps the inn uncrowded and allows you to sometimes feel like you have the whole place to yourselves. We even fell asleep on the lounge chairs surrounding the pool at night for a few hours under the stars and were never disturbed. There are plenty of lounge chairs so there is never a problem getting one to enjoy the beautiful pool and deck. The location is fantastic, only a few minutes from the PS downtown and Richard, the owner, is fantastic. He will sit with you for a chat to explain his home in the desert and will gladly recommend restaurants, day trips, etc.

Even a standard room is very spacious and the bedding is luxurious. The bathroom is large and the shower will easily fit 2! You stand on a teak slatted floor while showering and it is very nice. Flatscreens are standard in the rooms, although with 102 and sunny weather, we did not even turn the TV on. There is a gate to the property which made me feel safe and secure and it is off the main road which keeps it quiet so that you can enjoy breakfast and read the paper while enjoying the outdoor music. This hotel is not clothing optional which is nice if you are looking for a place just to relax, enjoy the weather, and not deal with that 'scene'. There is a full spa with a menu of treatments ranging from several different massages to facials and aroma therapies. Prices for the spa I thought were high. Spa treatments need to be arranged ahead of time. This place is great. I have stayed there twice and will continue to stay there for future trips to Palm Springs.
