Stayed eight nights in January 2006 in a non-smoking king room on the 5th floor facing the hotel entrance driveway. Room rate was $119 with $139 on Friday/Saturday.
No parking on the hotel/casino property - either valet parking or self-parking across the street. Good service by personnel throughout the complex - many appear to be trainees making up in enthusiasm any shortfall in experience. Casino is downstairs from the lobby entrance corrider - it is reached by an escalator near the Starbuck's counter. Many slot machines - several blackjack tables and quite a few video poker games (some with five cent minimum).
Swimming pool / jacuzzi was usually unoccupied during my stay. Same with volleyball court and fitness center. Pool is for playing but not for laps. For joggers there is a secondary road south of the hotel paralleling the freeway that is good for several miles.
Hotel room was fair size, well maintained by housekeeping with a coffee-maker but no refrigerator or microwave. For a morning newspaper a customer has to go to the gift shop (near Starbucks) that opens at 8am daily.
Even though the hotel is distant from most Coachella Valley sights, it right near the freeway which provides a quick drive to most points of interest. Being at a 'downtown hotel' isn't much better since surface roads in the Valley are always crowded and slow with many stoplights. Also, saw few walkers.
