Maria P,

Wow...Corpus Christi to here--that is a long ride. As for your stay with us at the Best Western Date Tree: thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and observations on Trip Advisor. We really do strive, and on a daily basis, to exceed the expectations of each and every guest.

I am sorry to hear about your refrigerator not working--and that is something we should have caught. And certainly something our Maintenance Department would have taken care of ASAP. And yes: we are working on renovating each and every bathroom in our hotel. As we have 3 buildings, however, we are putting 1 building out at a time...that way our guests' should NOT be disturbed by the renovation.

Glad you had a good stay. And we look forward to your next visit when traveling out to Indio.

RJsncal(or..Rick and Debbi),

Wow...nice to see a bold header with the proclamation "Stay Here!" Let me first off say this: thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. We really do take all the reviews--both positive and not so positive--to heart.

We know one salient fact: we need all our guests to walk away feeling we have EXCEEDED their expectations. If we can do that, and do with consistency, then we have achieved our goal--and be a successful property.

We will be sharing your comments with our entire staff...and we are right now in the process of doing some major renovations to all the guest bathrooms. So you will be even more happy on your return visit.

We look forward to seeing when you are back in Indio.

I booked the room after searching the internet for hotels with 24 hour pools. We drove up from San Diego on Sat 7/12 for a little girls getaway. We arrived pretty early to maximize our pool time and since they had rooms they let us check in early. The rooms are nice and clean with comfy beds. The free breakfast is great and they have fresh fruit, dates and cold water in the lobby for guests. Katie at the front desk was outstanding, she was very helpful and friendly. I would say the only draw back is that there is no place on the premises to get food so you need to bring your own or drive. They do have BBQs available by the pool. We loved it so much we booked another weekend in August before we left and we are taking more friends back.

Rachelw619,

Hmm...a Girls Weekend at the pool. This may explain why Access Hollywood wanted to film at our property. Not sure a "Farm Weekend" event would have got them out here. Let me say great it was to read your review fist thing in the morning.

It made my day!

And so nice to read your kind comments about Katie. She is a true professional at our hotel--and someone we feel very, very lucky to have with us. We will be sharing this review with her, and our entire staff, in our meeting today.

Thanks again for choosing the Best Western Date Tree...we cannot wait to have you back with even more friends on your next trip out to Indio.

Nice large room. Notable about the location: it is easy to access from Int.10, train tracks across the street bring train noise throughout the night, stores and restaurants will be a short drive away. Room was clean. Staff was efficient and friendly. Price was reasonable. Would stay again if overnighting during a road trip.

Very quiet. Fantastic bed and really great breakfast. Very good sized-room. The only negative was probably the distance from "life/food." Indio is small so you can drive fairly quickly to things, but you are not close enough to walk to stores, restaurants, etc. That's not BW's fault by any means. I had no problems or concerns with the hotel or staff.

Aime R,

So glad you had a chance to stay with us on your recent trip out to Indio. And yes: we were very glad to hear that the Best Western Date Tree exceeded your expectations. We really do take a great deal of pride in our hotel--and in trying to deliver exceptional customer service to each and every guest.

And we are in the midst of a major bathroom renovation that we think will make the Best Western Date Tree even better. We expect to have this fully done by the end of September. As for the restaurants being close...there are none that you can walk to within a few minutes. That said, once in the car you have a cornucopia of great places less 5 minutes from the hotel. And we have a list, with turn-by-turn directions, to about 25 different places to eat.

Thanks again for staying with us and sharing your thoughts on Trip Advisor. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit out to Indio.

We have staid in this facility twice in the last seven months ( May 2014 and Dec 2013). The choice of pet friendly hotels is rather limited in the Indio/Palm Springs area. The facility has generous sized, clean rooms in separate buildings with well kept grounds. Generous full continental breakfast included. The only drawbacks are no restaurants with easy walking distance, the pet fees apply to each pet ( we had 2). Be sure to call hotel for directions (any time) if you are not sure of location.

Room Tip: We prefer ground location for easy load/unload from our vehicle.

Stephen S,

First off, and most importantly, thanks for the kind words on Trip Advisor...and for taking the time to post them. We really do value the feedback we get--and take both the good(and bad)as a way to continually improve the Best Western Date Tree Hotel.

And yes: we are one of the only few pet friendly hotels in the valley--and we have a huge grass area throughout the hotel for the dogs to run around and get walked. And with enough notice, we will gladly block you downstairs. This makes it easier to get out to walk the dogs.

Thanks again for staying with us!

We will look forward to having you stay with us again on your next trip to Indio.

We recommend this hotel to everyone! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel is in a safe neighborhood. We were impressed with the delicious breakfast with lots of choices of food and drink items. You can check out a video or 2 to watch in your room. It has a huge pool and nice landscape around it! The staff at the desk and at breakfast are helpful and friendly. This hotel has gone out of its way to make it a pleasurable place to stay!
