I was in Palm Springs for the CUE conference, and my employer waited until the last possible minute to try and book a room. Every hotel around the convention center was absolutely booked, and nothing was available...until we managed to get a room at Palm Canyon. After staying there, there is a reason they had rooms available. As someone else... More

My wife and I have been owners for at least 15 years and were happy to see the change in ownership. The prior company used PCR&S as the housing area for the people who came for the sales presentation. This caused large crowds that someone became unruly. That seems to have changed with the new owners, but there area some... More

I stayed here with two friends, who are timeshare owners, over Spring Break. Yes - it IS a time share, which is good to know going in. They had been warned when making the reservation that the property does not live up to the normal standards of most of their other properties. The furnishings are old and slightly worn, but... More

This is a very well organized and staffed resort. Even though the rooms have not been refurbished in a while, the entire resort has an upmarket, quality feel to it, with great facilities. The lobby is spacious and elegant, with tasteful classical music playing, and the owner's lounge off the lobby has upscale comfort, two quality pool tables and great... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 nite stay in a one bedroom overlooking the pool on the second floor. For a 2.5 star hotel and poor reviews my bar was pretty low and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised! Staff was very nice, no hard push to do the Timeshare talk, our room was ready early... More

We stayed here over the weekend for 2 nights. I was a little worried because of some of the reviews but what a great experience! Check in took all of about 5 minutes with maybe a 5 minute wait. There were 4 people checking guests in so went very quickly. The lady checking us in was very thorough and pleasant... More

Apt was adequate and the pool area was good. However the kitchen was poorly stocked and needs a major upgrade. The housekeeping staff a number of times did not respond. I called on the day we arrived and requested more towels. They said they would bring the right away. They never came. The staff in general. Were very pleasant and... More

We got here as part of our time share getaway. So I'm not sure what the typical nightly rate is. My review is based on he facility alone. The pool was under some renos but when fully open its a nice place to sit and relax. Good for kids with te waterslide. The room we had was a one bedroom.... More

My husband and I stayed five nights in a one bedroom, overlooking the pool. It was a great experience. There is a pool side bar and a restaurant onsite. Both were convenient and reasonably priced. The rooms were well stocked, very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The swimming pool had waterslides and lifeguards on duty. This would... More

Arrived early to hotel. Greeted at door by smiling robots. Told to stand in line to check in. Checked in by a nice lady....who only wanted to follow her script. Had to come back to get my room keys at 4....where I was told to stand in line again. Since I had already done that, I asked one of the... More
