Stayed here for Coachella Weekend 1 (2015). After booking, I read all of the recent reviews. Richard K's reviews (on this website) made me extremely nervous. When I checked in, my friends and I received a warm welcome from Ken and his friendly staff (even though it was close to 9PM). When entering the room, I was searching for chewed... More

I do not get disgusted easily, but we arrived late and were greeted by a friendly manager named Ken, who gave us a key. We should've had a clue about the room though, when there were only three cars in the parking lot. Entering the room, there was gum on one wall, a stained shower curtain, with a live caterpillar,...

Found this place in the dark as I was starting to be concerned about not finding a place to stay. Dated? Yes. Bates Motel esque? Yes, that too. However, when you are in a tight spot, what are you going to do? Friendly attendant, who, incidentally provided a coffee maker and made sure I successfully got on the free Wi-Fi.... More

I was in town for the tennis tournament. We just could not get a room anywhere, so booked Palm Shadow. We figured we would just be in the room for sleeping. I built myself up for the worst. The Inn is old and dated, but the room was pretty spacious and the bathroom was large. Ken, the manager was extremely... More

Sparkling clean. No frills but retro comfortable. Satellite tv, wifi. Furnished outlet adapter. Just made me chuckle. Very nice attendant. Would stay again. Would have liked a pool, but then the price would be more I am sure. How many times do we really use the pool?

I found a rusty razor blade sitting on our bathroom sink. The mini fridge was sitting on a piece of wobbly plywood, there was also a random piece sitting on the sink. The room itself smelled old, the tv had a THICK coat of dust on the screen and was missing the correct cords to the direct tv receiver. The... More

I'd sleep in my car before I'd stay there! We booked this hotel six months ago. It had 3 1/2 stars, indicated that there was grass, grapefruit trees, and a pool. Not so! There were tumbleweeds, the pool has been filled in, and the parking lot was completely empty. The gentleman at the front desk was very understanding and cancelled... More

The rooms smelled very strongly of urine. The linens were dirty and smelled like b.o. The toilet overflowed. I couldn't stay and when I attempted to get my money back they would not accommodate me. Everything was so filthy I cannot understand how they are even in business. The Health Bureau should definitely check on this hotel before people stay... More

This is a great family owned quaint motel. It is mom & pop owned. When Palm Springs has no vacancies. You're away from the hustle and bustle and usually find a room. Just 30 minutes south of Palm Springs.

This is the second and last review I will ever write about the Palm Shadow Inn because I will never stay there again. This place used to be one of the nicest motels in the Indio area. See my review above for details but alas it has been sold and the new ownership have taken this once beautiful oasis and... More
