Where to start? Was it the ice cold beer offered at check-in? The owner, Rick, bringing pastries to people around the pool in the morning? Or the Popsicle's in the afternoon? Don't waste your time looking for somewhere awesome to stay! This place is paradise. My wife and were there celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary with three other couples. From... More

Every good thing that people have said about this little hotel are absolutely true. The location is off the beaten path (but a 2-minute drive brings you into the heart of Palm Springs) making it quiet and serene. The moment you walk in you hear the strains of Frank Sinatra crooning at the pool area. No rooms are bad rooms... More

I have been staying at the Desert Riviera for 8 years by myself on business and with Joe for pleasure. Needless to say, we love it. Judy and Stephen have become friends/family over the years. But this trip was by far the MOST special because we got married! Since it was just us, we were able to get married under... More

This was our third visit to the DR since 2009, last year we stayed at Hotel California, also an awesome place. Larry and Patty no longer own the DR but Rick and Martha were equally as nice and friendly, on the frist day Rick took my wife's glass from her in the pool and went and poured her a glass... More

I just returned from a quick weekend get away with some friends where we were lucky enough to stay at the Desert Riviera. I found the hotel through Trip Advisor and I'm just so grateful that I did because this place was perfect. We arrived late Friday afternoon, around 530pm and Misty checked us in. She immediately offered us beer... More

Highly recommend this hotel. Everyone at this hotel were the greatest! The hotel is so unique-so peaceful, relaxing and close to everything . Limo service to downtown, which came in very handy. The best ambiance ever hanging out by the pool- music, candlelight and great people. So many personal touches. Will definately go back!

First time to palm springs, stayed here with wife. Pretty perfect, awesome rooms. Probably the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The young lady at the front desk was funny, cool and helpful. The pool was great, same with hot tub. The evening ambiance was spot on. The only disappointment was we didn't see a continental breakfast but I... More

The only way to experience the essence of all that Palm Springs offers. Personal service, details completely anticipated, expectations exceeded. Rooms have very comfortable beds, lovely bath area with excellent shower. There is a kitchen with the basics one needs. This place offers just steps to a nice pool from every room. At night candles glow on tables and a... More

We broke up a 700 mile drive home from Tucson by staying at the Riviera. Wish we had more time to explore this incredible property. Only negative was there was only one person checking in guests at 8:00 pm and there were 4 parties that arrived at the same time. Amazing pool(s) and amazing room. Great job on the remodel.

This is my second time visiting this property and and look forward to future visits. We were greeted warmly with a cold beverage at arrival. This was my best friend's first time to Palm Springs and she got to enjoy the nice service and meet other nice guests who stayed at the hotel. The pool is big, love the noodles... More
