This is not a Motel. No it's more like your best friends went out and and brought a Motel and then invited you to come over and hang out with them. that's the only way I can describe the experience of the Desert Riviera. Because friends offer you a drink like wine or beer or bottled water.when you come in... More

I hate to leave an excellent review because I don't want to take a chance that there won't be a room available next time we want to stay. But the staff and accommodations at this hotel are fantastic and the only place I would stay in Palm Springs! Absolutely beautiful and relaxing and they treat you like family! Love this... More

Each time we stay, we are impressed with the continued graciousness of the owners and staff. Retro ambience inside and out. Beautiful pool area with a new BBQ! Becasue it is so small, it is always quiet and relaxing. At night, with the candles and lights, it is magical.

Staff is extremely friendly. It was our anniversary and were pleasantly surprise to be welcome with a gift basket and a bottle of champagne. We were... More

If I need to go to relax and enjoy, This is where I go. The place is well maintained. It is quiet. I have stayed at Desert Riviera 6 times. I always leave eager to come back. There are bikes to ride, a BBQ to cook dinner, and always a refreshing pool.

Loved our recent stay at the Desert Riviera. Judy and Steve pay so much attention to the little details that make a stay spectacular. We really appreciate all the extras and their great advice about the city. Rooms were great with that mid century feel. The pool and grounds just steps away from our room were breathtaking. Can't wait for... More

This was our 4th visit to The Desert Riviera Hotel. As far as I'm concerned there is no better place on earth. The rooms and grounds are emaculate. Judy, Stephen, Traci & Misty are wonderful hosts. They have become like family to us. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask. This was our first trip back... More
