We were lucky to spend two nights at the Desert Riviera and were so glad we chose this small hotel. It is well situated a short car ride from downtown Palm Springs. We were warmly welcomed by Tracy and immediately felt relaxed. The hotel has a beautiful small garden that is thoughtfully designed with quiet sitting areas. A lovely pool... More

We had a wonderful experience here. They set us up in a great poolside room, and greeted us with a drink and lots of treats upon arrival. We truly had a unique, special and unbelievably relaxing stay and will certainly be back!

This is the place to get away from the outside world. Just you and the pool. As the owner Rick described it. It feels just like your backyard. Anything you could imagine, lounge chairs, umbrellas, hot tubs, hammocks, barbeques, games, floats,etc.. Instantly we felt like family. Rick and his wife even made pizza's one night and provided salad wine and... More

First the grounds are amazingly well-kept. Its beautiful at night when they light the bulbs in the trees. Second, and this could have been first, the customer service was outstanding; incredibly attentive yet not overbearing. On our first day the owners passed out popsicles as we floated in the pool. The rooms were cool and stylish and homey. We have... More

Wow!!! What an amazing beautiful place! My husband surprised me for a birthday getaway trip. I've been fighting cancer for the last 14 months and he wanted to do something special. It was perfect! The thing that makes Desert Riviera so great is the people!!!! We met Semi, Misty and Tracy and they were all so friendly! Seriously the best!!!... More

We were traveling through Palm Springs, and were looking for a place to stay for the night. When I pulled up the review for this place, both my wife and I thought, this is an impossible rating for a Hotel we've never heard about. We travel extensively, and if you look at some of our other reviews you can see... More

Charming and quaint little 11 room motel, refurbished within it's roots, retro style. This is not a place for kids, but instead mature adults who want and need quiet respite. Guests are courteous and friendly. Not shouting buffoons here. Drink buoys with umbrellas float in the pool to encourage leisure, as well as the well kept grounds with the pool... More

This was our fourth year to visit this gem of a hotel. We have stayed at other small hotels in Palm Springs but the Desert Riviera is the best ! The staff is always very friendly.The pool is a super chill (not the water temperature, that is perfect).

This was our first visit to Desert Riviera. The property is sparkling clean, stylishly furnished, and welcoming. Though it was 106 outside, our room (No. 5) was cool and comfortable. I love that this property has been restored rather than remodeled. The mid-century vibe is pleasing, especially in the summer heat. We were so comfortable we decided to barbecue for... More

Love the property. Love the service. Will always stay here when visiting Palm Springs. Perfect place to rest and recharge when visiting Joshua Tree National Park and surrounding area. Easy jaunt to center of downtown. No parking hassles. Great staff that helps you plan your day excursions.
