My daughter and I stayed here while we were in town for the Indian Wells Tennis tournament. It's a 10-15 minute drive from the Tennis Garden, but not too bad. The hotel itself is very nice - I agree with the other reviewers that the rooms may be some of the nicest in So. California. The pool area is very nice with plenty of lounge chairs and nice cabanas for rent.
We did not go to the casino area, but it seemed like a nice enough casino. One very big point not to miss is that in most of California, smoking is not allowed indoors. Apparently that is not true in the Tribal Casinos, and you can definitely smell the smoke in the first floor casino/restaurant areas. That is definitely a big turn off. We were having breakfast outside on the patio and the man next to us actually got out and lit a cigar, chasing us away from our table. Cigarette smoke is bad enough, but cigar smoke is totally unacceptable.
Aside from that experience, our stay at Agua Caliente was great. The valet parking attendants were great and all employees we encountered were very nice.
We will probably stay closer to the Tennis Garden next year, but only because it is nicer to not have to drive back and forth. Otherwise, I would recommend this hotel.
