This was my first time stay here but certainly won't be my last.

The grounds are beautifully maintained and the view of the mountains is perfect. The pool is large and well maintained with plenty of comfortable chairs.

The king room I stayed is was large and had a full kitchen with an eat in area. Outside the room there was also a couple cushion loungers and a full patio set. Storage space was very ample with two closets plus a chest of drawers. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with everything you need.
The location is close enough to downtown to make for a nice stroll but not on the main drag so you don't have a lot of street noise.

I have been coming to Palm Springs for over 20 years and can safely say that you can't go wrong staying here.

This is my second stay at the Escape. The resort is fantastic. It is very mid century comfortable, focused on a large pool. The outdoors areas and the rooms are spiffy and clean. The staff is helpful and never intrusive. The property is very well located and easy to find. I am a huge fan and will absolutely be back in the fall.

The previous reviews state things so beautifully. The mature, gorgeous landscaping with a backdrop of blue skies and mountains provide a setting of peace and tranquility. The rooms give you the comforts you need. The pool and hot tub are glorious. The guests respect themselves and each other.

I can't wait to return.

The Pool, the mountain views, pathways to rooms, semi private patios, guest welcome snack baskets, continental breakfasts, owners Mark and Greg!, remodeled rooms, housekeeping staff!, poolside misting system, I can't get enough of this place. It is so mellow if you want it to be or you can socialize like crazy. I really like that it is small so you get a lot of attention. You can visit the busier hotels but trust me you wont want to stay in any of them they are all loud and most of them are too sleazy feeling. Escape has found a way to have a clothing optional resort that maintains a sense of classiness, with dignity, and informal luxury. I will be back soon.

Room Tip: I had one of the "smaller rooms" on my last trip but it didn't bother me a bit. I spen...

I visited Escape last summer, and booked again on a return trip to the city. It is a relaxing place with no attitude, away from the Warm Sands area but still convenient to all Palm Springs has to offer as long as you have a car. The area is quiet, and it's one of those places where you can socialize if you want to or just hang out and decompress. The owners are friendly and accommodating, as are others on staff. I enjoyed my time here, and I would definitely return.

We had been to Palm Springs 10 years ago and stayed at another "gay resort" and had hated it! but as for this ... what a lovely little hotel, owned and run by Mark, very friendly and helpful, organised a nice idea of a social evening with complimentary drinks and a small selection of snacks ... a great way to meet the other guests. Our room was modern and very well maintained and cleaned to a good standard too. A good breakfast selection was offered too which we ate around the beautiful poolside, although I do feel that the edges of the pool and spa area could be alittle better maintained. Other than that, I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who would want to go to Palm Springs
