Josie (manager of housekeeping) was very helpful when I left behind some items. She arranged for them to be sent right away! We also appreciated the courtesy of the housekeepers & staff. Lovely stay in a quiet environment.

Welks resort was perhaps one of our best stays we’ve experienced in Palm Springs. We stay in Palm Springs (and surrounding areas) about once a year because we love the temps and pools that resorts have to offer. Our daughters love playing and lounging by the pools all day long. We’ve stayed at the big-name resorts but I chose this...

The resort is older but the rooms were very nice. Got put in a poor location so requested a better location and was moved. The kids pool was always crowded and the adult lap pool was small so it was always full. 😝 the staff was very friendly. Wish they had a van.

We stayed at the Welk Resort from Feb 24th to March 3rd and really enjoyed our week. For the money it was one of the best values that we have found in the Palm Springs area. While the resort is in Cathedral City and not Palm Springs I found it to be well situated and we were never more than...
