We were in Palm Springs for only a night and we were very lucky to get a room here! The owners were incredibly friendly, the little things really make this place special. Even after we checked out the next day they invited us to spend as much of the day by the pool as we could. Many places won't allow... More

From the moment we arrived and was welcomed by Judy to the moment we left we felt that nothing was too much trouble. The hospitality shown at this establishment is like no other.

A small 10 room hotel so you really get the personal touches. Everything has been thought off - drinks in your fridge, welcome snack basket, free wifi, free international telephone calls. The owners can not do enough for you, reservations, taxis, anything. The rooms are immaculate with DVD players and kitchen areas. All rooms open straight into the amazing private... More

I have stayed in many places in Palm Springs. I will only stay at either Desert Riviera or Hotel California when in Palm Springs. The owners and staff provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere in the most gracious manner. Don't miss it!

Patty and Larry are terrific! No nickel and diming and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. When we arrived, the wine came out of the fridge, our room blossomed into a much larger one at no additional cost, and it became quite obvious that this was not a "nose-in-the-air" type of establishment. We loved... More

We stayed for 2 nights and loved it! We had the king poolside which was a huge room with a kitchenette. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pool has plenty of rafts so you can relax and float all day! Larry and Patty are the sweetest couple and are there to help make your stay enjoyable in any way... More

Wow! The perfect spot for a cozy, relaxing getaway. Perfect attentive service, while still private. Retro, perfectly manicured and maintained grounds, every amenity available, and freely given. Feels almost like staying at your own private vacation estate, with your own staff, waiting on your every need.
