September 2014: The stay wasn't too bad especially when you have great company. The view from our window was beautiful! Yes, the hotel need some upgrading but we were not in the room much to worry about it. The keys to the room did not work but we found a trick. You have to put the key in and pull... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Desert Princess for a one-night getaway. A relaxing, quiet property surrounded by its gorgeous golf course, the Desert Princess was exactly what we needed. The staff was welcoming and friendly, from the housekeeping staff and front desk clerk to the bartender and general manager. Our suite overlooked the golf course and the mountains... More

I rarely review any place I go to unlike everyone else who has their two-cents to share with regards to restaurants and hotels. But after reading some of these reviews on here I felt I had to chime in. First of all, is this place the Riviera or some of the other more up-to-date hotels? No. But this place is... More

September 2014: The princess you are going to is a 80yrs old princess, the building is old, smells old, your children under 18yrs old will not recognize the TV you will have in the room! The golf course is nice, if you have a room with the pool and golf area you will have a good view, but nothing else... More

I had read the reviews on Yelp and am aware that the property needs upgrading. I'd like to thank "Jennifer" who greeted us at the front desk on 9/7/2014. I noticed that the towels in the swimming pool area were a bit dingy and I had to request soap since the custodial staff had forgotten to leave some in room... More

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We have been in contact with the manufacturer of the key equipment to resolve our issues as the equipment was recently replaced and many guest had problems opening doors during this holiday weekend. Hopefully the problem has been solved. We hope you will visit us again soon. More

First of all I want to thank AARP for the discount. I would've very disappointed if I would've paid full price for this resort. When I booked a double deluxe room I expected a good size room. Well the first room couldn't get the key to work went back downstairs when I got in the room the restroom was dirty... More

I've been stressed out at work and saw a deal on Travelzoo for this place. So I decided to take a couple of days off and head to Palm Springs with my dog. And yes, they are pet-friendly and that's the only good thing I can say about this place. We arrived at the place and it was a ghost... More

I apologize for what appears to have been a truly horrific experience. Granted we are not the newest property in town but we do strive to provide a clean, friendly environment at a value compared to other golf resorts in our area. From you review it appears we failed miserably. Besides our resort I sincerely hope you enjoyed your visit... More

We stayed at this resort several years ago, and loved the location. After reading reviews, I was nervous about our visit. Our family had a great experience at the Desert Princess, and visiting during the off season was so much more relaxing.

Other than a few employees (the manager and everyone at the front desk, except Jessica) this place was a nightmare.

I apologize we were unable to meet your expectations. We continuously are making improvements to the property while trying to remain competitively priced within the area but from your comments we fell miserably far from achieving our goal of providing a clean friendly environment. We will use your comments as a learning tool as we strive to improve. More

No complaints... staff was great. Golf was great and at a great price! Pool was great! Overall I give the resort an "A"! And, I know that my family and I would stay at Desert Princess Resort again.
