Hotel has recently been remodeled. Pools are beautiful and like a desert oasis. Rooms are very nice and most if not all have a balcony. Several different bars. Staff were superior. The elevators are old and one of the two in our building was broken so we ended up taking the stairs most of the time. Only 3 stories so... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice now and the reviews on Trip Advisor don't do this place justice. My girlfriend loves the tranquil atmosphere around the pool and how romantic the area is when it's lit up with candles at night. I am impressed by how sincere and thoughtful the owners and staff are. They really make you feel... More

I've been coming to the Desert Riviera for several years and it never disappoints. I've already made reservations to return in July! The grounds are beautiful, the rooms always clean and fresh, and Judy and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful. Love it!

From the moment we entered the office for check-in we were treated with amazing hospitality! Traveling with another couple, my Wife and I chose this resorts adjoining rooms (11&2) with its own patio and kitchen. It was perfect, and such a great treat for us to stay at this adults only, quiet, perfect place! This property has a great private... More

This place really does exceed the reviews, the staff are simply the best, friendly, kind, and accommodating. This was our first visit, after spending 7 weeks in an RV, it was heavenly, the pool was wonderful, a good size and very warm. There is a large patio area around the pool, lots of tables, umbrellas, chairs, a firepit with morning... More

I love this place - we stayed here for Coachella this year and it was just as nice and inviting as our last visit. The atmosphere here is conducive to making new friends and renewing old acquaintances. The management is outstanding...to say the least.

We had room 10 which had plenty of space and 2 queen beds with kitchen.All rooms are ground floor opening straight onto poolside. No kids make peaceful. But... More

Choosing to stay at the hotel was based on Trip Advisor reviews and it it lived up to all expectations. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return to Desert Riviera on a further trip to Palm Springs.

Well, look no further and you will see why so many devoted guests return to this remarkable property. This is my 6th year returning to this Diamond in the desert. Each year this Hotel ramps up its vibe, creating even more perfection each time. The rooms are spotless, beautifully done - touching on the Mid-century, and are so tasteful. The... More

What a lovely respite at a charming motel! It has the perfect "Mad Men" vibe. It is spotlessly clean with whimsical décor. The grounds and pool are pristine. The managers go above and beyond to be helpful. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to others.
