Hotel Backstory

Aloha Hotel: Where nostalgia and comfort collide 

A visit to the Aloha Hotel is a step back in time.

"People like the nostalgia of the 1950s, and we own it," the hotel's manager, Mona, said. When upgrades are available, Mona gives them to guests free of charge, especially mid-week.

Built in 1947, the property was purchased in 1971 by Mona's mother, who previously owned the Four Trees Restaurant in Hollywood. She came to Palm Springs because it helped with her asthma, and operated the hotel for 40 years before Mona took over.

"I am so blessed to meet so many wonderful travelers," Mona said. "The foreigners love it, and most guests feel like it's home."

The 11-room Aloha Hotel is the first property in the Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood, and while the poolside suites are all restored, they contain the original 1950s furniture and decor and new beds. The city's free trolley stops outside the hotel Thursday through Sunday, until 1 a.m., providing transportation for guests in Palm Springs on business or to play. Several movies and music videos have been shot at the kitschy hotel, and photos taken on the property were featured in an Italian Elle magazine centerfold this spring. 

At one time, the hotel was called the Palo Verde Inn — the building once had a big "P" on it, and Mona found a vintage key and embroidered blanket with the name — but it was renamed the Aloha Hotel in order to be the first hotel in the phone book. 

"Aloha” means 'hello' and 'goodbye,' and everyone comes back, even 30 years later!" Mona said. "So, there are no goodbyes. Aloha, and Mahalo!"
