Michael was very professional, and very nice when I booked this place. I asked him a lot of questions, and he was very knowledgeable and very patient with me. It's people like Michael that make traveling fun, and relaxing. I will definitely book here again.

We stayed in the Shadow Mountain Resort for two nights in May. It's in a complex that consists of privately owned townhouses and hotel rooms for overnight stays. There is a nice pool and hot tub area and plenty of tennis courts. The rooms are a good size with a kichenette, dining area for four, a couch, television and deck... More

Greatt value! Rooms are nice with kitchen including full refrigerator. Pool and tennis courts beautiful! Beginning a woman and traveling alone for business I felt very safe with it being a gated resort. I Would definitely stay again!

Only here for two nights but the accommodations were wonderful. Very quiet and relaxing from a busy day. Rooms were clean and the grounds were both nostalgic and beautiful. The pool side villas are great for a quick weekend, close to everything. If I come back to the area I will prefer to stay here.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Was only meant to be for 2 nights. Place was so comfortable. Pool huge and we pretty much had it to ourselves. Lovely shops and restaurants nearby. Only downside is the catering facilities. The cafe is only open to 2.30pm but might stay open longer during busier times. Was peaceful. Just what we needed... More

Our anniversary happened to fall on the same week as the Coachella festival. Immediately we knew it was bad idea. Prices hiked up by 3x of the normal rate. We made plans to go to palm spring and had already purchased our plane tickets, hence we went along with our plan despite of the festival. We have been told by... More

The hotel was built in the 1940's and is totally charming. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms while not plush and super fancy, they are PERFECT for families. We loved the ability to have a kitchen in both rooms we got. It was like having our own condo. The kitchens are stocked with all the necessities, you just supply... More

Love this place. The courts are great and the pool is pristine- Also the grill is pretty good. Very close to some great restaurants but why bother as they have kitchens and the mountain views are stunning from most of the balconies.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our winter has been extra beautiful with snow on surrounding mountains and temps in mid 80s. Thanks for your nice comments on our views and amenities. We look forward to your return! More
