Don't judge this book by its cover. We stayed here to be close to central Indio and it was great. It looks like (and is) a motor court from the mid-20th century. But, the rooms are clean, well cared for, and comfy. Yes, it's on a busy street and across the street are busy railroad tracks, but you don't really... More

Great inexpensive hotel to hit on the way out or into town. The rooms are simple and small, but the mattress felt pretty new, the bathroom was recently redone and there was a beautiful mural covering 2 walls and the ceiling. Just what we needed for a solid few hours of good sleep before continuing on the way. The owners... More

This is a super place to stay if you want to be near the glitz but not paying for the glitz! While visiting friends in Indian Wells we stayed at the City Center. This was a good choice, well run, clean and pretty close to most things in the area. The area is an industrial area so there isn't much... More

Everything was impeccably clean and well constructed. The woman in the office was very nice. The murals on the walls were an extra special touch! My only complaint was the train noise (which they can't do much about).

Don't let the location or outside appearance scare you off. This is a perfectly fine little establishment. Friendly owners. Bargain price. Room was small but clean. Loved the murals! Bath looked recently renovated. There is some road and train noise, but it is not bad. This solo traveling woman was pleased.

A beautiful room, sky with pink clouds painted on the ceiling, nice murals and artwork on the walls, and a clean modern bathroom. All I needed was a place to sleep, but was delighted with the joy I found there as well. Good people run the place (said they'd owned it for 26 years), and it shows a lot of... More

I arrived in Indio the night before my long term condo rental was ready. With only one night to stay I read the reviews on trip advisor and decided to give the City Center a try. What a pleasant surprise. It is so obvious this family realizes that in order to attract good clients the rooms need to be kept... More

This is definitely not a ritzy place nor is it a trendy place, but it's cute, very clean and reasonable. It's also an awesome example of a cool old vintage motor lodge and even has mural paintings in the rooms! Our bed was comfortable and had ample decent bedding. The sheets and towels were soft quality and good fiber. For... More

What a pleasant surprise. Looks like a seedy SRO from the street. Inside, big comfy (very firm) bed, lovely little renovated bathroom, nice paint job, working fridge, and robust wifi. Clean!! And attentive staff. We walked an hour into town and had a really good repast and beer at La Tapatio restaurant. A real gem.
