The facilities themselves were nice and well maintained. I was in Room 23 close to the reception and had serious noise issues which ruined my stay. The hotel is older and the noise insulation was poor to begin with. The adjoining room's bathroom was on the other side of the wall, you could here the sliding glass door on the...

We are very sorry your sleep was disturbed by other loud guests and their late night activity. Even more so, we regret that nobody on the staff was notified of the issue until you checked-out so that it could have been addressed. We encourage anyone with an issue during their stay with us, to simply let us know and we...

We have stayed at Escape countless times and always have a great time. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and quite comfortable.

Having had an unfortunate experience at another resort, we stopped by Escape to see if they could take us for 15 nights, which may have been a tall order at a moments notice. We were met at the gate by Willian, who could not have been more helpful and charming in every way, he showed us rooms, looked at the...

My husband and I booked a trip to Escape in Palm Springs based on the TripAdvisor reviews and I'm so glad we followed our instincts. The resort and staff are wonderful.

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.

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...
