I stayed here 1/2/13-1/5/13 with my husband. It is conviently located right outside of Palm Springs and very close to Palm Desert. Lots of restaurants and retail around, all within 20 minutes or less! The floor plans are open, very spatious, plenty of towels/soap, dishes provided with dish soap, daily trash removal, and everything was very clean and well maintained.... More

Stayed here 7-14 Dec 12 with my wife. Positive - great location, units have a nice layout, great views from balcony, mid week house keeping and almost daily garbage collection, nice pool and hot tub, plenty of towels/soap etc, walk in closets, new appliances. Grounds are very well kept. On the negative side, it's a bit dated. It appears upgrades... More

This is our second time to Lawrence Welk (1st time for Spring Break, 1-1/2 yrs ago; this time for Thanksgiving break) and we had a great trip both times. In fact, even though we've stayed at more upscale places in Palm Springs (like the 2-bdrm timeshares at Marriott Shadow Ridge), we actually prefer it here, bcse it's a smaller, 3-story... More

So, this isn't the place to go for a party. Nor is it a Zen Retreat, exactly. It's a clean, well-kept place near Palm Springs with a lovely view of the San Jacinto mountains, and a home spun quality that makes it a sweet place to be. They offer things like "book mark making" and "make your own sundaes". They... More

We also traded with RCI. We were a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised. On recommendation, we requested golf view. Best choice. Most units have been remodelled. They do a section each year. Housekeeping staff on top of things and very pleasant and accommodating. Check-in smoth and efficient. We were approached three times...

We used a timeshare trade. The resort is very nice and the grounds are very well kempt. Our room however overlooked the parking lot, next to a busy busy road. Make sure you call ahead and ask for a room overlooking the pool or golf course. The rooms are a bit dated, not badly, but somewhat. Things in the room... More

Stayed for a week on a timeshare trade. Check-in efficient and quick with a no pressure invitation for a timeshare presentation. Plenty of space, all rooms a good size. Great fully equipped kitchen. The unit was clean and well kept although it is getting a little older. Great bed. For the golfer there is a good deal with the golf... More

Great, fantastic, and not pushy on trying to sell you a time share. Safe parking, well lighted pathways and very comfortable rooms. If you have kids, this is the place you want to stay. They have everything curtailed towards the little ones to keep them busy and you comfortable. The apartment as I call it was fully stocked and lovely.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were pleasantly surprised to not have any of the problems that were mentioned. After reading previous reviews I requested and received an upper floor overlooking the golf course and having a beautiful view of the mountains. I am glad I did because I could see how some people would be upset with the... More

My daughter, husband and I traded through RCI for a 3-night stay. Not too much pressure for a presentation when we checked in and we were not approached again. We had a ground floor room with a parking lot view. Not great, but oh well, it was a short trip. The resort seems more like an old apartment/condo complex, as... More
