Indian Wells Resort Hotel
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Indian Wells
Reviewed January 1, 2013

My daughter and I booked this hotel for an overnight stay while traveling from Northern California to Phoenix. After reading the mixed reviews, I was nervous. The hotel is a little old school - like stepping back in time - but in a good way. The lobby and pool areas are beautiful. The rooms are standard sized - and we had true "double" beds - which is what was advertised when we booked. The staff was friendly, all was clean and there were places to eat and shop within about a mile (as well as on-site eateries and room service.) The hotel is a bit older - but we embraced and enjoyed that. The staff was nice, the fitness center is open 24 hours (the pool closes for maintenance soon), there is a small on-site gift shop.....etc. I would come back and I would stay longer. Because of the age, the prices are better here - and I thought that it was a real value.

It was only for a night to stop on the way from LA- Phoenix for the holidays- Any more than this 1 night I would not have been happy at all. The hotel is small- which I like- the parking was great ( right in front of my room ) the bed was too soft- the "happy hour/appetizers" were very poor- bean dip and chips. There are so many choices and I honsestly chose this becasue Expedia had a great deal on this one. So I didnt invest much- no harm , no foul-

We had reserved a room for one night but ended up extending it when we saw what a lovely place it is. It is very clean, has a full dining room and a full breakfast included with the room. There is a bar with happy hour. Also a pool and golf course. It's only 5 miles from some nice hiking in the mountains.

The hotel was perfectly comfortable and a great place to stay. The pool area had plenty of chairs and the staff was helpful and friendly. There was ample parking and plenty of good places to eat close by. It was the first time we ever had to pay a "resort fee". I wish they would have just included that in the total price because there was just something unpleasant about paying an extra fee to stay there.

Stayed here for first time 11-28-12 with fiancee'. We totally enjoyed our stay. Lobby, lounge and bar very nice with fireplace, Xmas trees, fountain, etc. Excellent Happy Hour (half price) plus live music (50's mostly) made for a great experience. Room was very average with tube TV but for $49 + $20 resort fee was a good deal. Golf at adjacent private golf club very pricy at $125 as was the hotel restaurant which was closed on our night. Room had a safe but no frig. Very low water pressure in bath sink but tolerated for one night. Will definitely go again, stay longer and take in the pool.

Stayed Sunday evening for one night. I had read several reviews, good and bad, but gave it a go since the rate was too cheap to pass up. Overall, I liked the place and I would probably stay there again. The front desk staff were great, friendly, helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. One negative comment: there is a $20.00 resort fee charged on top of your nightly rate, and I don't recall seeing any notes about this fee on the web site where I booked the room. Apparently, many resorts are now charging additional unadvertised fees, so as a general rule, you might want to call ahead and inquire before booking.

Room Tip: The pool is nicely lit in the evening, so if you can, get a room with a view of the pool.

I stayed here and was very surprised at the rooms and the rates. It was the most inexpensive place I could find for a quick stay in the desert. The rooms were very nice and had great views of the golf course. The bar was excellent and the food was very good. Be sure to check out the Frank DiSalvo show in the lounge. He is very good and sings some great songs. Had a really great stay. Went back to see the show again. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the golf course.
