My husband found the hotel via Trip Advisor- ranked #1 in Palm Springs. But only 10 rooms? Would we get a reservation? We did and we are so glad we did! All the great reviews are absolutely factual. The place is immaculate- the cleanest hotel I've seen in a long time. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL! Here I sit by the... More

I searched Tripadvisor for a hotel for our "babymoon" trip to Palm Springs. I figured most places would be quiet, as it's the off-season (summer), we were going Monday-Wednesday, and a lot of restaurants etc shut down. But it was appealing that Desert Riviera doesn't allow small kids, and was a bit up the road from the downtown area. They... More

Found our new get away place! Couldn't believe when we walked in the gate how pretty everything. was. We were blown away by all the detail everywhere, from the grounds, to the beer we were offered at check in, to our room (5) honestly we didn't want to leave. So much to mention but it's best to come see for... More

Booked for a 15th year anniversary sans 3 young boys (never happens ... Ever.) when hubby gets in an accident 3 days before our Oasis Awaits. Call me selfish, but I called our handy-dandy Ortho surgeon from the trauma center and pitched a "jailbreak" to meet the famous Judy & partake in relaxation & aqua therapy, even if just for... More

My wife Julie and I just stayed here for two nights and had an amazing time! Judy and Tracie are amazing staff, and made us feel incredibly welcome during our time here. This is our second time visiting here together and we could not have asked for a more relaxed, peaceful visit. The rooms are very spacious and very well... More

My wife and I spent a couple nights at the Desert Riviera recently, and loved the entire experience! There are only 10 units in what is more of a "motel" than a "hotel". This place reminds me of motels that my family stayed at in the 60's, but way more cool! The rooms front the beautiful pool. Much thought and... More

My best friend and I stayed here for one night, and immediately wished it could be longer. Judy and Tracie, the management, we're both welcoming and informative, and accommodating even before we had arrived. They said that they tried to think of everything THEY would want in a hotel stay, and that's what they've provided here. We were immediately offered... More

Went with family for a little peace and quiet and was not disappointed. Everyone is friendly and very welcoming; including the owners who stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our stay. They asked if there was anything else they could do. Wow!! We were not expecting all the little extra's; treat basket, wine, soft drinks, etc. Judy and... More

Thanks to everyone at the Desert Riviera hotel for making our 15th Wedding Anniversary Trip one of the best getaways in our adult lives! I'll add in a few extra points that we noticed: 1. There is a 1:1 ratio of hotel staff to rooms! Add up the owners, managers, and cleaning staff throughout the day making the rounds to... More

Amazing service, beautiful rooms and private, secluded pool area. This will be our new go to place in Palm Springs! Love that it's a no kids place and small with a family vibe. Rooms are updated and very nice, too! Love the little touches like the welcome basket, and home baked breakfast pastries!
