Can only add to what had already been said, we had a great stay here as part of our honeymoon trip. The owners Rick & Martha were lovely as were all the staff we met. Perhaps the best compliment I can give is that it was like having our own private pool in our back garden, so relaxing and just... More

Everything about this place continues to exceed expectations. All the details, upgrades and enhancement do not go unnoticed. Such a treat to be able to return each summer and truly unwind. This place has personal service figured out!

All of the reviews that say good things are all true. Judy, Stephen, misty, and anyone we talked to or met at the Desert Riviera were more than amazing. The location was perfect, close to down town and the airport but far enough away that it was quieter and less traffic. If you need to get around they have a... More

Came this weekend to celebrate my partner's birthday and it ended up being a relaxing retreat for us both. It was an unusually gloomy weekend in Palm Springs and we were afraid our trip would be ruined due to the weather...well, even the clouds couldn't stop us from having a great time. What makes this place fantastic is their attention... More

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!
