“A desert oasis. (Yes, I stole that line.)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is big enough to have a variety of shops and grounds but small enough to feel more personalized. Our 'standard' room was very nice and spacious and our view of the desert was beautiful. Didn't matter we could see some roof below and highway beyond - the sunsets were lovely and the sky played out a mural of muted colors each evening. It's about 8 miles from Palm Springs but if you're there primarily for the gambling (or the shows) then you'll be fine. You'll be fine anyway - eight miles is not so far. We found decent parking spots in the self-parking. And we got to bring our dog which was a treat and surprising for a casino, in my experience. The casino is nice too ... very colorful, not as thick with smoke or noise as many of them are though smoking was allowed (not in our no-smoking room though.) It was, like the hotel itself, spacious and clean feeling. Most of all, we were pleased at getting such a nice room with its nice big tub and flat screen TV's and a bed that was very comfortable. I'm giving this hotel a 5 stars even though there are more exclusive fancy-schmancy ones that would normally get that rating. This hotel was impressive. You feel like you really get your money's worth -- without any of the pretentiousness that sometimes comes with some pseudo classy hotels.

This was our first time staying in this resort. We were so impressed, so beautiful, well designed, furnished spacious, and decorated. Very pleasant stay, only one night. Good food, but the slots are very tight, lost quite a bit. I will, recommend to my relatives and friends.

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floors, have nicer views.

This hotel is always clean and beautiful, the casino, rooms, restaurants, pool and restrooms are well maintained and staff are friendly and attentive.
There is some security at night when using the elevators to go to your room. The rooms are large with a mini fridge, tub, separate shower and double sink. Lots of towels and soaps, shampoo, conditioner, lotion are provided. However, there is no coffee maker in the rooms. There is a large tv in the room and a smaller one in the bathroom.
The casino is fairly large with slot machines of various denominations,a variety of table games and a large poker room. At times areas of slot machines are not in service.

Room Tip: higher floors offer a nice view of the desert

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The rooms are really nice, large and well appointed. The only downside is how smokey the lobby and casino are. You can actually smell the smoke BEFORE you enter the building!

The Steak House is pricey, but pretty good. The WatersCafe is what I consider mediocre. A better bet is the Poker Deli (have the corned beef on rye!) or the Buffet. I love the JavaCaliente coffee spot. Great snacks/sandwiches/salads and fabulous coffees, mochas, etc. Nice place to grab a quick breakfast.

You can't beat the valet service! Those guys are really fast and efficient. All in all, a good place to stay in the desert and very centrally located.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room!

One of the best Indian Casinos in California. Good food, Slots were a little slow. It is close to Palm Springs, so you have all of that to visit too.
The pool in not deep but you can enjoy being in the water!!

As soon as you get to the elevators, you notice how fresh the air begins to smell. The room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large and included a very nice tub and a 2nd TV to enjoy while relaxing in the tub.
