We very much enjoyed our stay at Desert Vacation Villas. It is like a Condo, and is located in the sophisticated Uptown Design District in North Palm Springs, with art galleries, interior design studios, decoration stores, and upscale restaurants, adjacent to the Luxurious Estates in the Old Las Palmas area of North Palm Springs, including the Elvis Presley Estate and...

We stayed here for a week. Had a wonderful week staying at this resort, a little dated, but with recent bathroom upgrades/renos. Kitchen adequately equipped for making a meal or two. The bed in the masterbed room was comfortable, although the fitted sheet was so tightly fitted that it kept popping off - just a little annoying. The two bedroom... More

Very roomy for two adults and two children. Three balconies, two bedrooms, living room and kitchen. We had a car so we were able to reach local sites. We had to call for arrangements to get the key (as explained to us in advance). The pool is on the small side and it's not set up like a full-service hotel,... More

So I was there for a birthday celebration. It was 6 women in a 2 bedroom condo. The condo wasn't bad but the beds were HORRIBLE! We all said that it felt like we slept on rocks (yes, even the sofa bed). The pool was a joke and too small. There was no shade anywhere. Would I stay there again..... More

We got a recently renovated room that was perfect for a family trip as we were able to cook all meals at home and everyone had their own TV with cable. The rooms are great, fully renovated apart from the cottage cheese walls and ceiling. The grounds are a bit of a let down. No real landscaping, just some sad... More

Was a very pleasant surprise. The staff were very nice. I saw some of the reviews that say it is bland inside and out, yes it is not fancy but very serviceable. We got the two bedroom suite.

from the outside, this is a beige, bland stucco box that I believe was once condos. I wasn't expecting much when I checked in—there's a small central pool, bbq facilities and free bicycles. but when I entered my upper 2-bed, 2-bath unit, I couldn't believe my eyes. fantastic modern decor—lovely furniture, light desert-appropriate colors, photos of palm trees and Indian...

In early June I was invited to spend 4 days in Palm Springs with my college friends. They picked the place, in fact it was a time-share swap and met our budget.
