My wife and i were looking for a place in Palm Springs for 2 nights. While looking at TripAdvisor reviews i came across the Desert Riviera listing and couldn't believe all the positive ratings.

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 -...

We've been all over the world, and this was without a doubt the nicest stay we've ever had. This place is just lovely, you can socialize or have as much privacy as you want, every need has been provided for by the owners and management. Misty offered us much info about attractions and places to eat. Such a relaxing stay!!

Stayed here for a week, while we hiked the various canyons and parks. Everyone is friendly, with great tips for where to go and what to do. Cruiser bikes are available for trips downtown, though they are close enough to the main strip if you don't mind walking a mile or so. The grounds are also lovely, with a beautiful...

It's pretty much impossible not to love this place: Comfortable, spacious, scrupulously clean rooms; an idyllic common area with pool, hot tub, fire pit and manicured gardens; and highly personalized service that makes each guest feel like a top priority. We've stayed at some pretty amazing places in our travels and this one ranks among our favorites.
