“A Great Find”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We traveled to Palm Springs with family then moved to Escape after they left for some non-family time. (This is NOT a family friendly resort.) It worked out well as the resort we originally booked to stay at (based on their high Trip Advisor rating) was not what we chose after arriving. We toured several before choosing Escape Resort, and are so happy we did. Unlike some others, the pix on the their website very closely reflect what you get when you arrive. The staff was very friendly and around when needed but not intrusive. Our room had a kitchen and full size fridge which was nice, even though we went out most nights. The location is great as it is only a few blocks from downtown and easily walked. The room was nicely decorated with modern furnishings and well equipped. The breakfast selection and amenities were more than we expected for the price. We will definitely be back to Palm Springs and will stay at Escape.

Room Tip: The rooms with Kitchens also have private patios with tables for outside dinning.

I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel.

The hotel was not very well cleaned. The rooms looked old, though they told me they were renovated only a year ago! Not a good job - the rooms already feel like they're 5 years older.

The hotel was very quiet, so that was fine.

The pool area was not very clean. I did not enjoy the hot tub since I was always the only person in it at night.

Not much else I can add to my previous reviews of Escape. Owners Mark and Greg continue to work hard on maintaining a beautiful resort. Best feature is the pool, which gets plenty of sun, and is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are clean, quiet and well-appointed. Very comfortable bed, as well. A large Flatscreen HD TV is nice, and plenty of DVDs available, or hook up your laptop to the TV for other entertainment.
I always like the morning breakfast with a healthy variety of cereals, fruits and plenty of coffee.

As I have previously mentioned, this is NOT a wild party resort...The guests are pretty relaxed and just looking to unwind. For those looking for more activity, I would suggest a day-pass at some of the other resorts, just a few minutes away. Evenings at the hot-tub are most relaxing, and nice to look up at the stars.

Definitely back again in the fall!

Easy walk to downtown with restaurants and nightclubs. In a nice quiet neighborhood also.

Room Tip: Rooms by the pool are best.

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.
