“We're All Family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

I wished I didn't have to write this review because I don't want the world knowing of the best kept secret in all of California. The return stay to the hotel just keeps getting better and better. We are all on first name basis no one is a stranger. Judy keeps putting us in the best restaurants in town and also has time for directions around town, she asks if you like a ride to any restaurant in town. We received our champagne for our celebration and pictures too. We are gonna miss all of the staff :(.. We just might return sooner than later. ;)

Room Tip: They are all great rooms

Rick and Martha are the best owners, on hand and always interacting with customers. Judy, the general manager, is tops in customer service. Steve, always there first thing in the morning, prepping everything, and to have an early cup of coffee & chat with.

We stayed in the new VIP Suite & are now totally spoiled!

Room Tip: Room #1 and the VIP are the best

Very comfortable, affordable and warm hospitality. It felt like a home away from home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling without young children. It was peaceful and I am already planning a return trip.

My husband and I were looking for a quick and relaxing getaway, and the Desert Riviera in Palm Springs definitely fit the bill. The grounds are well kept, the pool is inviting, and the fire pit and outdoor lighting in the evening help to create a very calm and romantic mood. All the staff go out of their way to make each and every guest feel comfortable and welcome. We really appreciated the "little things" the hotel had to offer such as fresh fruit everyday, water bottles and sunscreen at our disposal, the 24 hour atrium that is open for guest use, etc. The list goes on and on. We also met some wonderful repeat guests of this hotel and enjoyed chatting with them in the early mornings over coffee, at the pool, or around the fire pit. When we go back to Palm Springs, it will be at the Desert Riviera and we hope to see some of our new friends again. Thanks to Steve, Judy and Misty for a great stay!

Usually we stay at other hotels in Palm Springs, but I think we found our new favorite. Every detail has been so well thought out here.
The pool area is amazing. The grills came equipped with all the tools, condiments and rubs for bbq'ing. On Sunday morning the owner walked around the pool and offered fresh pastries to everyone.
Steve, Judy and Misty are SO friendly. Everything was so relaxing and luxurious. Very affordable. The only complaint -- it's hard to leave! I can't wait to stay here again!

My friend and I stayed in Palm Springs for a night before going to Las Vegas. The Riviera was recommended. It was a Great hotel with Friendly Staff and Nicely appointed Rooms. They guys on the driveway were helpful at getting cabs organized and assisting with directions. Great Stay. I would definitely stay again in the future.
