We spent a week at one of the tonier resorts in Palm Desert and while Welk isn't as new or surrounded by lush landscaping, it is very laid back and comfortable. It has many amenities that those more expensive resorts don't have: large walk-in closets and lots of storage for clothing and food, mid-week cleaning and daily trash pick-up, real...

It started in the first hour, when i opened the dresser drawer to unpack and a cricket jumped around in the drawer. That was the first of about 20 crickets we saw in the room over five days. Pretty bad, but the worst was yet to come. I was sleeping in bed and all of a sudden I woke up...

This is the most disgusting place I have ever stayed at. Everything in this place is dated and needs a total renovation. Crickets are everywhere. They come through the bottom of the doors and you cannot get rid of them. If you complain to the front desk all they can do is offer you a bottle of champagne. Insulting! I...

It's not trendy or chic; the guests tend to be families with kids or silver-haired retirees. Most rooms have a beautiful view of the parking lot. (Some rooms overlook a golf course.) But the rooms are clean and quiet, and the staff is great. All rooms are 1 bedroom with a living room, dining room, and full kitchen. We own...

I made a trade through RCI (1 Bedroom) and this was a very nice resort for the number of points needed for the booking. The room was very clean, spacious and attractive. The staff was friendly with the limited interaction that I had with them. You definitely need a car as neither the attractions or restaurants in the area are...

Mostly a timeshare resort with 1 bedroom units. Nice pool area and activities for children. Low key resort. A little old resort than other Welk resorts. This is in Cathedral City. Right next door to an excellent golf course. 3.5 stars

Hot weather with awesome mountain views all around you. Clean rooms. Nice pool with a snack bar. Great location. 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. 10 minutes from the airport. Just minutes from many golf courses and casinos. I have been going there for 10 years and I can't wait to go back.
