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.

We stayed here for our Daughter's Wedding. It was close to Fantasy Springs Casino and the Wedding Venue. Saturday very early I got up and went to find coffee and came back around 7 am? the car was directly in front of our room. I left the car unlocked with my Garmin GPS on the seat. I went in to...

Its a small motel that is extremely clean, the rooms are the size that you will need. Please don't expect a huge room that you would get at the sheraton. If you want that go there, but you will be missing out on the friendly service and amazing owners. I did go to this hotel for Coachella and the owners... More

Friendly staff, nice comfortable room. Asked for no smoking room but there were 2 ashtrays and ashes in the nightstand drawer. Beware if you have children - there was no TV channel list and when we turned on TV the screen was full of naked men and women in an orgy on lots of beds with closeups of their private... More

We booked for 2 nights into this hotel in January. We were given a dinky room. It was clean and the bathroom was very nice but it was extremely small for the price. My husband complained and we were given a bigger room automatically. The heater had to be turned on to cold for 20 minutes before the heat could... More

The rooms are much better than one would expect given the location and type of motel. Nothing fancy, just not dinged up, dirty, and dilapidated. Niceties include a microwave, flat screen TV, and free WiFi. The woman one duty was quite friendly. Two things; the beds are hard and the heating / cooling unit is noisy. To be fair, the... More
