This is a great place. Don't let outside fool you, it's peaceful and well kept on the inside. Nice pool and friendly staff and not a pick up joint which is perfect for me and my partner. The pool is at a nice temperature, free continental breakfast and not too far from town and a pretty good price. This is... More

This property has been recently updated. The room was very clean and comfortable. The resort is peaceful and well maintained. This is not a place for the party crowd but is an excellent choice for anyone wanting peace and quite. The pool and whirlpool are spotless. The decor is tasteful. Wi-fi worked well.

Stayed here for the first time. Usually stay in Warm Sands area and especially like InnDulge but wanted to try something new this time. Found owner Mark friendly and personable. The room I stayed is very clean and spotless. Event though the building is older but they did a very good job keeping the bathroom and kitchen very clean. It... More

Stayed here during Halloween Weekend and, as in past visits, this was another great visit. As with my previous reviews, the same holds true. Mark and Greg are excellent hosts; unobtrusive, but helpful when needed. A new employee Willian was also very pleasant, polite and helpful. The highlight was an informal Halloween Party with the resort next door, which was... More

Escape is a peaceful paradise! It's a smaller boutique resort with 12 rooms, a pool, and a jacuzzi. The grounds are immaculate. The pool and the jacuzzi are sparkling clean. Other amenities include free wi-fi and a continental breakfast served daily. The Wi-fi is strong and reliable, and the breakfast spread is simple and clean. It includes fresh fruit, pastries,...

There is truly a dizzying number of hotels to choose from when planning a Palm Springs vacation but eventually I settled on this place and I’d say I got pretty lucky. I chose it based on two things, the website and a brief chat I had with the manager when I was planning my visit. I called to ask questions... More

This was my third stay here, and as always I found it relaxing and convenient. I arrived as a wildfire burned in the mountains above the city. Two days before my arrival, the owners e-mailed everyone with a reservation to warn of the problems with air quality and ash. They waived cancellation fees, and offered a discount for guests who...

We traveled to Palm Springs with family then moved to Escape after they left for some non-family time. (This is NOT a family friendly resort.) It worked out well as the resort we originally booked to stay at (based on their high Trip Advisor rating) was not what we chose after arriving. We toured several before choosing Escape Resort, and... More

I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel. The hotel was not very well cleaned. The rooms looked old, though they told me they were renovated only a year ago! Not a good job - the rooms already feel like they're 5 years older. The hotel was very quiet, so that was fine. The pool area was not very... More

Not much else I can add to my previous reviews of Escape. Owners Mark and Greg continue to work hard on maintaining a beautiful resort. Best feature is the pool, which gets plenty of sun, and is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are clean, quiet and well-appointed. Very comfortable bed, as well. A large Flatscreen HD TV is nice, and plenty... More
