52 Great Weekend Escapes in Southern California, Terra Cotta Inn is recommended

We have lots of write ups about our resort from the press. I have always said for nudism to grow in North America, nudist resorts have to be able to compete head to head with mainstream textile hotels. We do that very well and pretty much are the only place out west that is recommended along with other mainstream hotels by the press. Other naked places my get a writer at them and write about staying at a naked place, but they never are considered one of the best of all hotels to stay at in Southern California.

For instance, this December in the Best of the Best issue of Palm Springs Life Magazine, we were picked as one of the 3 best boutique hotels of ALL small resorts and hotels in the greater Palm Springs area. Nude sunbathers are very fortunate in Palm Springs that one of the best hotels in town cater to them.

Now we are not the fanciest, we just take care of you the best. For instance the #1 selected hotel by Palm Springs Life Magazine has rates from $299 - $520/night. They are part of a hotel chain.

We on the other hand are a great value with rates from $149 to $189/night. Plus, we include complimentary breakfast and wine and snacks. Early check in (10am) and late check out (5pm). And in December from now until December 25th, we do a stay 1 night, the 2nd night is half priced special, INCLUDING WEEKENDS!

The reason I bring up today's post is a few years ago we were selected as one of the 52 Great Weekend Escapes in Southern California in the book by the same name.

The book is published by Insiders' Guide which is the third largest travel guide publisher in the US right after Fodors and Frommers. What sets Insiders' Guide travel books apart is they do in depth reporting on where to go, where to stay, things to do, etc. They are highly respected by travelers. We are honored to be recommended by them.

The book had 4 pages written about us. We were the ONLY place or activity that was recommended in Palm Springs. Now that's pretty cool. Insiders' Guide obviously felt that staying at our nudist resort is the best activity and place to stay in Palm Springs.

Now I was reading the acknowledgements in the book. They acknowledge only 4 people by name. Mary Clare and I were 2 of the 4 people. They write "Southern California overflows with terrific people and companies dedicated to showing residents and visitors alike a great time...

Several folks deserve special mention... Tom and Mary Clare Mulhall at The Terra Cotta Inn were a joy to work with, they single handedly gave us all the "in" we needed in the Palm Springs adventure/tourism community."

We have never been acknowledged in the forward of a book before. I guess being nice to people all the time really does pay off LOL.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!
