Nice hotel. Took my family there for the weekend and they loved it. Family loved the pool and the relaxed atmosphere. It has older furniture but it's going under renovations to become a Hilton doubletree. The problem I had was when we called for room service for extra blankets and pillows we didn't get it and the messed up our... More

Had a great time. Neysa was great at the front desk. Everything went perfectly, we'll definitely go back. Had everything we needed. the pool was beautiful and the golf course was in perfect shape. had everything we needed. There was a little construction going on but didn't bother any of us. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I ended up needing to stop and found this space on booking.com and the pool looked very inviting with the views of the mountains. i called in advance to confirm they had a gym, wi-fi on site. I was NOT told the property was under renovations first of all. The room was dank and smelled like old pee. The carpet... More

I have been to this resort multiple times and I have loved it. Unfortunately my last experience was terrible. My stay was on July 25, 2015. The hotel is under renovation and they FAILED to notify us. This is very sneaky, unprofessional, and misleading. At the time of booking they should have notified us. But beyond that, they have let... More

My stay was for business and pleasure and I was left without a car for a day. There was a major renovation going on at the hotel and there was absolutely nothing open besides one lonely restaurant and a Coke machine to keep me company. The food in the restaurant was quite good, although there was almost no customers in... More

We recently enjoyed a 3 night break at the Desert Princess to regroup at the end of a 5000 mile road trip. Being the middle of summer and being aware of some renovations in progress, expectations were for a low key stay. Some resort services were limited and the substantial restoration work underway was apparent. However this was not intrusive... More

Hotel advertised as a "resort". However, no spa; no bar; no pool service; pool dirty; the cheesy hotel cafe only open Friday-Sunday and with very limited hours. Hotel is going through major renovations. Carpeting throughout looks old and loose. I understand that the summer is slow season, but this was ridiculous. There were still plenty of people at the pool... More

Desert Princess is under going a renovation to becoming a Hilton property. We stayed in a corner suite which is quite spacious, but is definitely in need of updating. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. This will be a great place once the renovation is complete.

The hotel/resort is OK, if you can get a deal via one of the discount booking sites it is a good place to base yourself for sightseeing or golf. I would not pay retail rates for this property. The staff were helpful and although the property is tired, they have tried to keep it clean and as updated as possible.... More
