I stayed at the Shadow Ridge with my 8 and 10 year old children. Starting with the room I stayed in a studio with a king and a fold out mattress. For the 3 of us this was plenty of room. The room was clean and updated nicely. There was a small kitchenette (mini fridge, microwave, toaster, flatware, plates, bowls) that was perfect for kid type breakfast and lunch preparation. the room was quiet and ample parking.
Our main reason for going here was for spending a few days at the pool. The main pool (Chuckwalla) had a slide and this was where most people were with small kids. There were plenty of chairs and also shade with some areas with grass. What is nice is that you could bring food and snacks to the pool area..i like that a lot.
Next to the pool is a kid/teen room called the Mirage. There were always activities going on for the kids and most of the prices were reasonable. There were video games and also a movie theater that was always playing movies. The kids really had a good time at the Mirage and didn't want to leave.
There was a walmart/Costco that was close by car. There is a cool movie theater complex with restaurants and Marriot had a complementary shuttle to this complex. I never used the shuttle but it looked convenient. We also went to an inside shopping mall that was about 5 miles away. Overall this was a great place to stay and all the staff was friendly and helpful.
