Great view nice room the price was a bargain. I really enjoy this hotel for the view and location to my family. The golf course and mountains are pretty . It has a Volleyball net on the grass which my daughter really enjoys.

We got such a great price we are stunned. The resort is oddly empty. Counted 17 occupied rooms. And the bed and pillows are dead flat. That said the hotel is fabulous. The views are amazing over the golf course and mountains. Two hot tubs. Big pool. Lots of loungers. Wide hallways and classic resort decor. Staff is friendly but... More

Our family 5 have stayed there now 3 times in the past two years and enjoy our stay but do see a need for renovations. We found that most of the ice makers weren't working and room amenities are looking dated and in need of renovation or repair.

We checked in and the hotel DID not have the room we had reserved. We reserved two beds and got one instead. The hotel rooms were all full so we had no choice. Lucky for us we were coming from vacation in another state and had an inflatable mattress with us. The hotel did do a favor and knocked off... More

Overall, our stay at the Desert Princess went well. The views are great, the rates were very reasonable, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the grounds are well maintained. The facility is starting to show its age though, popcorn ceilings, CRT television, the toilet would make noises occasionally, some of the towels looked a bit dinghy/old, and the... More

The resort is minutes away from Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells. Very accessible to shopping malls whether you are looking for bargains (you can go to the outlet stores in Cabazon or Downtown Palm Springs) or the high end shopping (go to El Paseo Dr). The resort is clean, the staff are courteous. Meal prices are reasonable but still... More

Hotel is very pleasant, located in a good area, but outdated. Golf course was really nice! Personnel is very attentive to providing great customer service to itheir guests. The cafe was ok but we only went there because it was the only restaurant open in the hotel, and the staff wasn't very good and food was over priced and not... More

The room was satisfactory and the front desk and restaurant staff were friendly and efficient. The only complaint is that we were part of a group and we understood from another group staying at the same time that the price they paid was significantly less than the price we paid. For that reason I would hesitate to come back to... More

Dear Richard E, Thank you so very much for your comments as they are very important and allow us to address these concerns in the future.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Desert Princess and will definitely come back. The room on 3rd floor was very spacious, clean and view of pool and mountains fantastic. Although hotel out dated it is still a great place to stay and grounds incredibly beautiful with flowers in full bloom. Had lunch at the country club, recommend... More

More of a 3-star facility. Rooms were good size but just ok in terms of look and feel. Expensive for the type of hotel and room. Have stayed in small facilities for almost 30% lower (but they did not have a golf course).
