“Won't consider anywhere else.! This place get's an A+ everytime.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Palm Springs Tennis Club is right up there with all the other 5 star places. We have been using Timeshare places for over 10 years and have travelled to many different places. This is our second time at PS Tennis Club and are convinced that it is the best by far of anywhere else we have ever stayed. The location couldn't be better, the service is first class and the units are beautifully decorated, modern and welcoming. This whole facility is a "First Class" resort.
It has everything a traveller will need like fully equipped condo unit (just like home) and it offers a generous laundry room with free washers/dryers and a pool table to enjoy anytime. It also has popcorn available, movies, several pools and Jacuzzi areas as well as amazing mountains surrounding the property. It is tucked away from the downtown street yet a 5 minute walk to everything you could possibly want. Palm Springs is now our favorite vacation place mostly due to the Palm Springs Tennis Club and it's beautiful resort. We loved our week there and didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: The hotel units against the mountain offer great privacy. What a nice view and yet totally private a...

.This is very good place to stay with family. It's very very clean, customer service is excellent. There are three pools and many jacuzzi s, and a lot of places for making BBQ. The rooms are pretty big and comfortable, and there is everything you need.,fully equipped kitchens. Location is perfect: it's near to town and to mountains at the same time, so you have beautiful view from balcony or patio. They have many thing to keep you busy and not be bored such as table tennis, tennis court, billiard, gym, free bicycles, playroom for kids, free Wi-Fi. I really suggest to stay there.

We are owners at the Tennis Club and spend a couple of weeks each year. The property is a historic property that is well maintained and has beautiful greenscapes. There are 3 pools and multiple jacuzzis. All you need to bring is your clothes and if you don't feel like eating out, some groceries. The property is within walking distance to all the restaurants on the main drag. The hotel portion of the property is getting a scheduled remodel and from what we've seen they will be state of the art. Only downside is the Internet is pretty darn slow so don't plan on bringing your Roku box to stream.

Room Tip: If you like it quiet get a room in the main building (not the cabanas) or near the quiet pool.

I have been a timeshare owner of a one bedroom unit since 1982. I love this place. The upkeep is first class so the resort stays a class act. The units are comfortable and luxurious without being too too, if you know what I mean. Location is perfect being in downtown PS but right against the mountain so you are in town but feel like you are secluded and private. I love the three swimming pools and five whirlpool spas.

Room Tip: I like staying in the hotel units but there are bungalows too.

We stayed here because it is the resort that is now connected to our timeshare in Laguna Beach. We were very pleasantly surprised at what a beautiful place this is. We decided to just get a studio as we were only staying a few days and since we had never stayed here, we didn't want to spend a lot of money. The studio was very nice and there was plenty of room. The bed was listed as a queen but was actually a little larger than our queen at home, but not as large as a king. The décor was beautiful and very modern. There were no baking dishes in the kitchen and I don't know if they had them available or not, we ended up not needing them so never asked, they have pretty much everything else you might need. One thing that was a really nice surprise - a dishwasher!!!!! We use to stay at the Plaza Resort and Spa and compared to this place, it was a dump - no dishwasher either, you had to hand wash your dishes. The landscaping here was beautiful. They have three pools, family, quiet and adult only. It was so nice to be able to go to a pool without screaming, running kids - so relaxing and enjoyable. You could walk to downtown, although it was a little scary coming back after dark as the street was not very well lite. We will definitely stay here again and again and will probably spend the extra to stay in a one bedroom next time.

Only a couple of negatives - one woman at the front desk was rather snooty, but everyone else was very friendly and very helpful. Our view was mostly the upper part of a tree and the storage area next to the restaurant!

I have stay in this resort/hotel for many years. And I love it. Their rates are totally worth the price for their accommodations. They have 11 tennis courts if you're into tennis. They have 3 pools and 5 spas, the main large pool is next to Spencer's Restaurant. They have a game room by the lobby, with snacks, ice cold drinks, coffee and washing machine. Several Gas Barbecues, Fitness Center, free movie rentals from the lobby, free bike rentals and free parking. The resort/hotel is very close to restaurants, stores, coffee house. I usually walk there. Because by the the time you look for parking, you could have walk a few blocks. One day I will move to Palm Springs, although it is hot there in the summer, the air quality there is much more cleaner and fresh compare to LA.

I was lucky to get the Villas a few times. Although the rooms in the main lobby are not bad either. So either way, their both awesome. And oh yes, the cellphone reception there is really bad. But they finally have WiFi, so your good there, and free internet use in the main lobby. I definitely love that. Can't live without my cellphone, my internet and TV. Those are my 3 important necessity on my list. LOL :-)

Room Tip: If your room is next to a pool, it can get pretty noisy. Especially when children are in the pool. O...

The location is maybe 6 short blocks off of the main road "Palm Canyon Drive" and offers the best combo of access to shopping, restaurants, and tourist-y kinds of activities. The resort itself is so quiet as it is tucked into the side of a shear rock mountain and far enough off the busy road so traffic noises don't impact the peace and quiet of the resort.

The physical location of the resort is in the "Historic Tennis Club" district and the walks around the beautiful properties is reminiscent of the 40's and 50's when Hollywood stars made this their playground. The neighborhoods are spectacular!

The resort itself is made up of 63 hotel-style units and 63 bungalows. All of the 2 bedroom units ("W" for Wimbledon) are located in the bungalows and nearly all of the 1 bedroom/2 bathroom units ("CC" for Centre Court) are located in the hotel. Other units are Davis Cup ("DC") a studio, US Open ("US") a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom in the bungalow part of the development, and Forest Hills ("F") which is also a 1 bedroom located in both the hotel side and the bungalow side.

Our stay was in the newer hotel building and the room was a CC. It was wonderful. The 2 bathrooms were such a nice extra (the bathrooms are not large) and there was a ton of closet space (3 mirrored sliding closets). Lots of hangars, too, which we find is a rarity in general.

The kitchen was certainly big enough and appointed well enough to make our stay very comfortable. No Teflon non-stick pans though, which does make it tough to make eggs. We brought our own along just to be on the safe side.

During our stay, only 25% of the hotel was in use and the remainder was undergoing a complete top-to-bottom re-do. Our unit was one of the 25% completed units and was so well done. The quality of the furnishings and flooring was extremely good. The only parts of the units that are not getting redone is the kitchen and bathrooms. Otherwise, the sheetrock walls and ceilings are stripped right down to the frame and even the glass patio doors were removed. We peeked in several rooms under renovation and could see the extent of the work underway. The sliding doors have beautiful new sliding shutter doors and everything made an excellent impression on us.

We noticed the air conditioning units were not replaced and also noticed the air blows straight in the room, rather than up. To avoid the direct draft and high breeze factor, we built a wall with our luggage in the living room so the air would deflect off and go straight up. Also, we alternated the a/c units so that at night, we turned the bedroom one off and let the living room a/c unit work a little harder. It is quieter that way, too.

Because the hotel was only 25% available for use, we did not find it noisy. The units are also separated by solid block walls so the noise doesn't pass through the walls as it does in many other places we have stayed.

The laundry room is open to the guests and there is no charge for this amenity. The work out room is very big, has 2 treadmills and 3 elliptical machines, stationary bikes, free weights, floor mats, and multi-station weight stacks. Bring ear buds if you plan on watching TV in the fitness room as there is no TV sound otherwise. Nice touch, actually.

Great on-site restaurant (Spencer's) and loads of tennis courts which require you to wear tennis clothing and shoes.

The pictures on the hotel walls are black and white photos of the old-time stars enjoying themselves at the resort. Can't remember when we saw a picture of Rhonda Fleming last bit that is how far back the history goes with stars and the resort. Very impressive!

The adults-only pool is located behind Spencer's and during our stay in June, no one used it in the evening. Another big plus!

This property is owned and governed by a timeshare owner's association and they deserve a lot of credit for maintaining their property and doing all the updates to keep it in such wonderful shape. This was a Platinum Interchange exchange for us and we think it may be one of the best exchanges we've had.

We were thrilled to be in the hotel property up against the mountain of rock and appreciated the fantastic view. The bungalows are across a little 2-lane street. If you are a hiker, Ramon Road goes up to a trail head which is such a short walking distance from the hotel.

Such beauty, loads of character, and wonderful memories of a perfect week spent in historic Palm Springs! Our room was 205 and our check-in clerk, Steve, said it was a great room. How right he was! All the staff at the desk are helpful, courteous, and on-sight 24 hours a day. Newspapers are in machines in the rec room behind the front desk (USA Today and LA Times) and the desk will exchange your dollars for quarters to use the machines.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the hotel side of the building that faces the mountain and not overlooking the 2-lan...
