It's a Motel 6, No frills, simple "we'll leave the light on for you" motel. I stayed there for 2 reasons - 1) one of my best friends lives nearby and 2) they are pet friendly. The girl at the desk was not unpleasant, but didn't go out of her way to make you feel welcome either. The bed was... More

Yes, I know this isn't a 5 star motel. However, we did have expectations of honest people. The room was OK, average for this type of motel. It was dark just after we checked in and brought in our luggage. There were no outside lights on in the parking lot, very troublesome for travelers with a ton of stuff in... More

Stayed on 6/27/2013, outside temp at 9pm was between 90 and 100, next day forecast for Palm Desert was for 117!. When I checked in I heard the clerk on the phone telling some one to" turn the A/C off wait 15 minutes for the compressor to kick in" (first red flag). Got to my assigned room; A/C only on... More

If you like ticks, this motel is good. We woke up in the morning to find bloated ticks in our bed. The night clerk offered some compensation for the ticks, but could not make the computer comply. Until the discovery, we enjoyed the hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and well maintained. A close-by yogurt shop provided... More

We stayed one night - Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. We made reservations online with the Indio Motel 6 but found this one that was close to where we had dinner. The front desk gal took care of canceling our other reservation and we found our second story room clean and freshly painted. The room looked like the carpet was new... More

This is pretty much a standard Motel 6. The room was clean, but the place has not been remodeled. There is plenty of parking. There are some restaurants and stores across the street in a strip mall. The somewhat steep overpass and the pedestrian unfriendly entrance to the strip mall are a mild deterrence.

I was on the way to Ontario, California from Phoenix for business had to take my pet with me. I was suprised to learn that Motel 6 will allow any size of animal in a room at NO additonal charge. Some hotels/motels can charge up to $150.00 per night, so that is a bonsus. It is a very basic set-up,... More

We stayed here overnight while travelling north. A typical no-frills Motel 6, just off I-10, but with no disturbance from traffic noise. The ground floor room was clean, but in the full afternoon sun. On check-in we were warned "not to change the air conditioning settings as the AC unit would freeze up if adjusted ...". Well our room was... More

This is a clean quiet place for an overnight stay. It is a highway motel, empty during the day. If you are staying in the area longer than a day I would suggest the Motel 6 Downtown in Palm Springs about 25 minutes away. Palm Springs is less windy and you will find the pool can be used all day.... More

As a business traveler, I have stayed at some of the best hotels around. However, when it comes to me paying for the room, I shop around. This motel 6 was a great deal for the money (paid $76 with my AARP discount). Room was remodeled and refreshed - looked great. The 2 full size beds were ok, and the... More
