Stayed here for a week with my wife and we were quite pleased. The facilities were just great from the pool and jacuzzi to the outdoor grilling area and the clean comfortable rooms. Everyone on staff from the front desk to housekeepIng to the landscapers were great and friendly! Would definitely come back

My family has been coming here since the early 1980s. I've had the good fortune of traveling to a lot of places in this world, and seen some beautiful luxury resorts. But in the end, the Sands of Indian Wells is what feels like vacation to me. It is comfortable, clean, friendly and the pool is wonderful. Come here for... More

I frequent the 760 area often. I choose this hotel based on the reviews and I got the room 40% off due to an Expedia special. When we arrived it was after hours. The lobby DOES not stay open 24/hrs nor does it have a walk up window to check in. I was very confused on how I was going... More

The Sands is a gem of the desert in the highest priced zip code in the Palm Springs area. It is convient to all great golf courses, and the Indian Wells tennis resort and restaurants and shopping. The rates are 1/2 the cost of the surrounding hotels, the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, the staff super friendly. There is... More

We stayed here using time share points. We were very pleased. Yes, the room was very small, but we didn't spend that much time in it. Partial kitchen was adequate for our needs and there was communal kitchen and barbeque grills for use by guests if one wanted to cook. Pool was very nice - warm like bathwater - with... More

The Sands of Indian Wells is a little hidden gem in beatiful Indian Wells, CA. It isn't a 5 star property, but the rooms are clean and the grounds are well kept. The salt pool is a definite plus and the jaccuzzi is large and very relaxing. Coffee is served every morning in the "Coachella" room if you do not... More

Sands of Indian Wells I liked our stay at the Sands of Indian Wells in Palm Springs, although the rooms can afford to be bigger, staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen is small but we didn’t cook, we ate out most days. We love to travel but hotels are not... More
