This is really an exceptional property with an exceptional staff! The owners, Mark and Greg, have done a fantastic job maintaining the property through thoughtful color and design choices. Everything you need with a little Palm Springs style! The team they have is equally amazing and are attentive and engaging. Great job Bob, Gabriel, Joshua, and Ron! Keep up the... More

I love the new changes to the Resort. The walls have been lowered in the front porch of your room making it very inviting. It's a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the mountain views and the pool area. Bob welcomes you with a great smile and strong coffee, as always. I call this place my second home.

I just returned yesterday to the wonderful Escape Resort in Palm Springs. It's looking even better than ever with improved views from the courtyard rooms of the pool, the jacuzzi, and, of course, one of the best mountain views available in the valley! The always reliable, friendly, and helpful Bob prepared our room which was, as usual for this resort,... More

I loved my stay at Escape. Property is quiet, not crazy sexual, and the management is wonderful. They would bend over backwards for us. Room was perfect and made up every morning. The bed was a little slice of heaven, felt refreshed every morning. The breakfast was simple: pastries, fruit bars, oatmeal, nothing fancy but a great touch. Clientele was... More

We really appreciate your great review and are thrilled you enjoyed your stay!

I recently spent 6 nights again at Escape, during the last week of October. As with my previous visits, the place continues to excell. Great staff, Mark and Greg remain excellent hosts; there if you need them, but never obtrusive or overbearing.
