Everything was great until we went to bed. The mattress was a cheap, lumpy nightmare. All of the other good things about the property--location, size of room, nice staff, etc--didn't matter at all because we were misrerable all night. A Motel 6 would have been a better choice.

We stayed here with another couple in a 2 bedroom condo for 2 nights. The rooms were great--a nice big living room with room to relax, a kitchen with plenty of room (we didn't cook anything, but a nice convenience still with a table, full-size fridge, cups and glasses--and if you wanted to cook, all of the essentials appeared to...

We reserved only one night there, however, the kind service, the excellent room - both comfy and *very* clean – all were the reason we felt sorry for not staying longer. The room had a fully equipped kitchen, in which we cooked our breakfast. It was very large. All in all – it was an excellent place, and on our... More

My husband and I just returned from a two week stay at the vacation villas. Having never been to Palm Springs, we weren't sure what to expect. No, this is not a 5 star resort, but we were very pleased to find that our "villa" was clean, had two good sized bedrooms and a large pullout sofa in the living... More

Stayed here for 4 days with colleagues. We had two villas, with three people in each villa. Extremely comfortable and cost-efficient. The villa's kitchen has a large fridge, a stove and oven, microwave, and dishwasher, so we cooked our own breakfasts. There are two rooms: one master with a queen sized bed, and a smaller room with two single beds.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Desert Vacation Villas. Plenty of space for 3 of us and it was clean and quiet. It was 105 degrees in Palm Springs while we were there and our room was always comfortable and cool. Great value for the money!

My birthday falls on 4th of July and this year we wanted to venture out of Orange County to go some place different to escapet the fireworks madness. Although we chose the most hottest time to go at 109 degrees, we made the best of it in our cool, crisp roomy air conditioning rooms. Our experience at Desert Vacation Villas... More

Stayed here for one week in July with my 2 daughters. Loved having 2 bedrooms with 2 baths and the kitchen had everything imaginable for any cooking you would want to do. Perfect location with great view of mountains and nice and quiet. Loved laundry on site. Our condo was a little dated but they are redoing them all one... More
