We needed a relaxing break and Escape delivered. Atmosphere is relaxing and easy going. Owners and staff are nice and very friendly (thank you Willian). King courtyard room was comfortable and specious with a very nice enclosed patio in front and another one totally private at the back. Great pool. We will definitely be back :)

Had a really lovely long weekend at the Escape while in town with a few friends. The room was nice and comfy, we were right by the pool (which was both low-key and the center of the social scene), and overall we were delighted to relax and be treated like favored guests. Special thanks to Willian for always being a...

Intimate place with relaxing atmosphere. Kitchenettes are great for small gatherings. Happy Hour is great for mingling with guests and staff. Willian is especially friendly and helpful. We have stayed there several times and look foward to the next visit this summer

My partner and I recently visited Palm Springs. We found Escape online and decided to stay there because of the wonderful reviews. First of all I have to say, that as soon as we walked in we were greeted with the warmest smile from an employee named Willian. As we checked in, he let us know that if there was...

Thank you for your review guys. Yes we do know how fortunate we are to have Willian and all of our crew, which we fondly refer to as the Escapees. We strive to create a fun and stress free environment, while still getting the work done. We believe that shows in the attitude and smiles on our escapee's faces as...

This was my first time staying at the Escape in Palm Springs and I very much enjoyed this guesthouse. The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was very friendly and pleasant.

Thank you for taking time to post your review, and pointing out some great things. We are located in the San Lorenzo neighborhood, surrounded by four other gay resorts. This neighborhood is a little more relaxed than the Warm Sands area, and none of the resorts offer day passes (with the exception of us for active duty military only). We...

This was my first Palm Springs experience and I think Escape was the perfect place to stay. Small size of the resort afforded a relaxed, low-key experience, and the opportunity to meet and mingle with the other guests. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and facilities are spotless. True to it's mid-century modern roots but with tasteful updates such as modern...

Thank you for taking time to post, we are delighted you enjoyed Escape and Palm Springs! One of the things we always like when we travel and stay in places like our is the great environment to make new friends. Nothing makes us happier than when we see this happening over and over with our guests, here at Escape. :)

My partner and I decided to stay here for our very first clothing optional resort experience. We had tickets to go see the tennis matches in Indian Wells and chose to stay at what looked to be a very relaxing and calm environment.
