A small, one story, quiet and friendly motel in Palm Springs. The 11 rooms are arranged in a rectangle around the beautiful central courtyard with swimming pool, wonderful plants and outdoor bbq's. Exceptional service and friendliness from Tracy. The entire premises are maintained to the highest standards. Much appreciated are the shared kitchen and laundry facilities with free bottled water...

We've stayed at the Desert Riviera Hotel four years now. This is a ten-room, retro hotel. The rooms are modest, but clean and decorated in mid-century design. It has a large pool area just steps away from each room. Downtown Palm Springs is just a ten minute drive and there are restaurants walking distance from the hotel. You can also... More

It was my second visit to Desert Riviera Hotel and I already made my reservations for next year. Lovely small hotel. Clean rooms, nice amenities, nice pool and grounds. Staff very friendly and accommodating. If you are looking to relax at the pool in a quiet atmosphere, this is the place. My only disappointment was that the room I like... More

We couldn't have been happier with the lovely, intimate setting and the friendliest, most helpful staff ever! Thanks so much for everything -- including the complimentary champagne for our birthday girl!

My partner and I just returned from four days at the Desert Riviera. Before we arrived, I read up on the countless excellent trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! This place is an absolute gem! The staff ( Judy, Steve, Tracey, Misty) went above and beyond to shower us with warm hospitality. We were picked up at the airport-... More

Great vacation spot for my husband and I. Relaxing atmosphere, which is just what we needed. The staff is amazing and helpful - great customer service! The location is perfect with ease of access to where ever we wanted to go. Thank you Steve, Judy, Traci and Misty for a wonderful stay. Miss being there.

Celebrated my 50th birthday here with my husband and it was perfect. We were picked up from the airport and then welcomed with a drink and all the things that make you feel so special. Not only are you are treated like family, but the special kind of family. I love that all the rooms are around the pool and... More

I brought my mother for a birthday getaway, and after reading the reviews we felt so lucky to find a couple night at the Desert Riviera Hotel. The room #11 was wonderful, with a full kitchen and a private patio. The grounds are beautiful, the amenities are above and beyond. But the staff is where this little gem of a... More

My wife and I stayed at Desert Oasis last week, during the week and had a great time. Being in the luxury inn business, we have very high expectations and also know how much work is involved in running an inn (we own the Grand Idyllwild Lodge). When we arrived we were greeted, handed a beverage and made to feel... More

Just returned home from a quick getaway week to Palm Springs. Tried to book the Desert Riviera for the whole week after reading all the reviews, but could only get two nights of our trip. This place is so popular that people book a year in advance. we were so happy to get at least the 2 days. Can't say... More
