Visited Palm Springs for a quick business trip and decided to try out Escape Resort. I'm SO glad I did! Upon arrival I was met with both friendliness and professionalism. After a brief tour of the resort, I was shown to my room (Deluxe King) which was very spacious and clean. Bed was large and super comfy. The complimentary snacks... More

I stayed at Escape Resort in Palm Springs for four nights/three days in early October of 2016. My stay was preceded by some miscommunication with the owners via email. My request for a quiet room was met by what seemed to be a suggestion that I look for accommodation elsewhere, which obviously was not the expected or desired response. The... More

Mark and Greg, the owners, continue to provide a delightful, well-kept resort. The swimming pool was clean and refreshing, Hot tub also very clean and relaxing. I was there for Halloween weekend, and although Escape did not... More

There is not much to say to improve upon the previous reviews of this exceptional property. Escape is located on a quiet street not far from downtown. The rooms are exceptionally clean, warm and inviting. The kitchenettes, if one plans to take advantage of the convenience, are perfectly stocked with everything you need. There is coffee and light breakfast fare... More
