Mali M,

Have to say, reading a review with the headline "Excellent" is always the perfect way to start the morning. And be sure of this: our owners and our entire staff read EVERY review that is posted on Trip Advisor.

It really is our way of checking on our most salient goal for this hotel. That being: satisfied and happy guests. And if we can deliver clean rooms, superior customer service, a great hot breakfast, and a true value then we feel confident our customers will respond favorably.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts about the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. And we certainly hope you will choose us again on your next trip out to Indio.

For being right along the highway this hotel is fantastic for the traveler. Nice people, small but comfortable rooms with everything you need....AND CLEAN. The pool was right out our first floor room which was great for my 9 year old niece and 6 year old daughter. The breakfast was good but even better was Paula the attendant. My mom really enjoyed talking with her. I have been a hotel manager for 25 years with Best Western and would surely recommend this hotel for anyone traveling their way.

Angela C,

What can I say: being able to impress another Best Western GM...now that is HIGH praise indeed. We have high standards...and we both know how hard it is to run and maintain a hotel.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments on Trip Advisor--and for giving the Best Western Date Tree a chance on your recent trip through Indio.

And must say...25 years with Best Western! Now that is something. And here I thought my 11 years with the Best Western Date Tree was something special.

This hotel was booked for us through the Best Western "800" number so we weren't sure what we would find. We were in the process of moving family with U-Haul, small children, and pets. We found this hotel to be great in all aspects! Lobby and grounds staff were all very polite...they even brought the luggage carrier out to meet us. They have written directions available for grocery stores and various restaurants in town and the morning breakfast was all we needed...nice variety of hot and cold items. The pool was large and clean...they even have a barbeque available if you want one for a poolside party. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and the price for a night's stay was very reasonable. We would definitely stay at this hotel in the future!!

Mike K,

Make no mistake: there is nothing as stressful as moving. And it really fills me with pride that the Best Western Date Tree was able to provide you a clean and comfortable and relaxing stay on your journey across the country.

Having moved many times throughout my career, and becoming very close to the U-Haul company, I can attest to not always having the best experience. And to having the nerves "shot" on many a move. So yes: being able to read that the Best Western Date Tree provided a memorable stay along the journey is something that our ENTIRE staff prides itself on.

Hope the rest of the move went as smoothly! And look forward to seeing you next time you are out in Indio.

If you are looking for high end accommodations, this place is not for you. If you are looking for the most friendly and accommodating staff (Jacob!!!), clean comfortable rooms, quiet poolside lounging and value, than this is the place for you. Have been going there for years. They are in the process of remodeling, so in the near future it will be even more pleasant than it already is.

Lisa,

First and foremost: thanks for choosing to come back to the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. There are so many hotel options out there...and our whole mission statement is to get our guests' wanting to come back over and over again.

As we see it(and try to preach it)one stay is NOT ENOUGH--we want each guest back again and again.

As for Jacob...well, what more can be said. He has won almost every customer service award from Best Western. HIs customer service acumen is legendary--and one that has made him an invaluable asset to the Best Western Date Tree. Thanks for mentioning him! It really does mean something to him--and to our entire staff to read such a review.

And yes: our hotel is in the process of renovating each and every guest bathroom. It's a long and arduous process...but we should have the entire hotel done by the end of September.

Look forward to seeing you on your next return to Indio.

We have stayed at this hotel before and have received consistantly great service. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast selection includes hot items such as eggs, bacon, potatoes and biscuits & gravy, in addition to fruit, cereals, breads and yogurt. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Although this is an older property, the grounds are spacious and well-kept. The rooms are absolutely spotless, with new carpets. I believe that they are remodeling the bathrooms building by building, as well as upgrading furnishings. The swimming pool is the best at any hotel we have ever stayed at. It is huge and sparkling clean. Also, the pool is not adjacent to guest rooms as it is in so many other hotels, thus no one is disturbed by pool noise. The very best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are absolutely helpful, friendly, and they go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. When you check in, say hello to Jacob and Toni and you will see what I mean! My husband and I live in Arizona but travel frequently to California to see family. We always make a point to stay at Best Western in Indio to "break up" the trip . . . . and have a little mini-vacation on the way!

Annette M,

Thanks so much for taking the time to post your thoughts and observations on the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. We really do strive on giving superior customer service--and it is something we have based our whole ethos and mission statement on.

So yes: your comments about our customer service(and Toni and Jacob in particular)mean EVERYTHING to us. And really help to validate what we are trying to achieve at the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. We may not be the "Newest" hotel(though we are doing a MAJOR renovation in all of guest bathrooms this summer). But we are sure of this: there is no hotel in this valley that has the kind of staff we have. And I am axiomatically certain in making that statement.

Again, thanks for staying with us once more on your trip out to Indio. And we most certainly will look forward to seeing you on your next visit out to Indio.

Very nice stay the staff was very friendly the rooms were very nice. Breakfast was excellent for a complementary one. I recommend this to everyone. It was a little hard to find no signs on the freeway. But worth the find.
