From the moment we stepped through the front gate the visual experience begins with a wonderfully manicured courtyard surrounding the pool centered perfectly on the grounds and a fire pit that says grab a nice glass of wine, kick back and enjoy your stay with us! Upon checking in Misty, the General Manager, introduced herself and welcomed us offering any...

Desert Riviera is a wonderful property, well maintained, great amenities and an extremely attentive staff. The location is ideal with great proximity to old Palm Springs and the east valley resorts. Misty is a very customer service oriented manager and the rest of the staff really knows how to make people feel welcome. We will be back!

Unique boutique experience. Small, intimate, quiet, easy parking, great access to all Palm Springs locations. The management tries to make this feel like your "home away from home" and they largely succeed. Many special touches, such as the bikes and floaties for the pool, add to that feeling. We stayed in a queen room and it was too small, but...

This is our sixth straight year of multiple stays at this hotel. The owners and their staff have thought of virtually everything we could ever want amenity wise and the service from the front desk, maids and maintainence folks is exceptional. We are going back for a week next month, April of 2017, and have two more trips booked for...

Always a great stay. Misty is the best, along with the whole staff. The owners threw a barbecue for all the guest just because. There was no event or holiday. We live the property and the people. We won't stay anywhere else.

This is a little oasis in the desert. Perfect experience with awesome service & ambiance from the owners! Great place to relax and unwind. Guests gather for coffee in the morning, share stories over the fire at the poolside in the evening & sleep in the quaint mid 50's style rooms at night.

This is our favorite hotel, second stay, booked for next year, can't wait to go there again. Would give it more stars if that was an option. The staff is wonderful as well as the owners who visit frequently.

We had a most excellent stay in an eleven unit hotel surrounding a 92 degree pool. The staff are wonderful and we formed lasting friends with owners, staff and other guests. Free washer & dryers, full out door kitchen including a pizza oven & big screen TV outside. Adults only.

We have stayed here before, and each time, before I come I wonder - should we try somewhere new?? This property is small (just 11 rooms) and the decor isn't fancy. However - they win me over every time with the hospitality, and the convenience. It's wonderful to be able to feel at home within hours of your arrival -...
