“One timer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Admosphere was a bit like an abandoned village... Rooms were OK, although the bed squeaked a lot. Ice cubes are available which is nice. Also there are a lot of interesting bugs walking around in and around the motel. Nice and cheap, but a one-timer.

During the tennis tournament when all hotels jack their prices up, this is the place to turn to. When you just need to eat, breathe, smell and everything tennis related during the BNP PAribas Open except a place to crash...then this is the place to establish your home-base. Everything else is no less than $120/night!
I have been coming here for yrs during the tennis tournament and this is still the best place to crash. During the tournament, it can only take 15mins to get to the venue and with very little traffic since youre taking the 111highway. Yes, dont look for fancy stuff but just a safe and cozy place to stay near the tournament.

Room Tip: book a room in the back for less highway noise. critical for long stays

I waited the last minute to look for a hotel so it was $400 or Motel 6. I got it with a 2 day notice. I was really pleased it turned out so well. The room was clean and it was pretty quiet all night. The only scary thing was an obviously homeless man trying to ge a room for the night but the man at the front desk politely turned him away (they were sold out anyway).

It's closer to Cathedral Cith than Rancho Mirage, and the view is awful, but I didn't care. I've stayed in a lot worse hotel rooms in Europe that cost a lot of money. This was a very good value.

Outside was neat & clean, as was the room. The front desk staff was friendly and even called to ask if the room was OK. Unfortunately, we discovered that night that the mattress sagged in the middle. Also, the sink stopper was not connected to the lift lever. Other than that, it was OK for the price we paid ($50 for one weekday night.)

BUGS! all over the floor and crawling on the walls.

Found ants in our motorcycle's saddle bags next morning when we mounted it back on to the bike.

For motel 6, it is roomier than any other we stayed in, I'll give them that much credit.
and in general good repair of the room we stayed in.

Check in & out was timely and efficient.

Due to the infestation we encountered on our way to California for our week's vacation, we opted to cancel our return stay here the following week and decided to go to Vegas instead.

For $50/night on Saturday/Sunday stay at the Rio in a King Bed Suite was price well worth the diversion...AND NO BUGS AT THE RIO!

Room Tip: No advice from us.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting friends and family.
The rooms were standard - not a lot of extras, the bed was comfortable and it suited our needs.
Unfortunately we were there during the country music festival so mornings and evenings were alive with drunken revelry and random beer cans, and I'm pretty sure we had the Irish step-dancing team staying above us the first night. Certainly not the motel's fault.

However. The customer service we received was top notch, attentive, friendly and helpful.
We were looking for a smoking room for 2 nights. Initially there was only one night open (due to the festival), but they made notes with our request, processed the second night's reservation, and the staff were easily able to slide us in to the same room for the second night.

We spent a bundle on tickets for 6 days at the PNB Paribas tennis tournament in Indan Wells and did not want to spend much on lodging since we would not be using the facilities beyond the bed and shower. This motel 6 met all our needs. I paid $3/day for access to Internet in the room. If my husband had wanted it for his device he would have had to pay another $3/day. Although we were not on the back (quieter) side, we were not bothered by the traffic noise. When we first entered the room there was the smell of chemical cleaner, but after asking them not to use it during our 6 days there, we never smelled it again. I used the full dresser. My husband used the open shelves for storage. There was good lighting to read at each bed. The decor was not spiffy, but we were comfortable and happy. The temperature was easy to control in the room. One night a loud screechy "smoke alarm" type of sound went off in the room next door which woke and alarmed me, but it turned off soon.

Room Tip: 2nd floor away from street
