Hotel was very close to the polo fields and had a shuttle service. Lots of neighbors also attending the festival, chill friendly environment kicking back drinking beers by the pool. The spa wasn't heated but it was hot outside so that's probably why. Rooms were nice and big the AC worked well. Kitchen was nice my only complaint is that... More

Negatives: No clocks, no coffee machine, shabby furniture, old buildings, very minimal decor. We got 2 rooms- one with one Queen bed, and another with two... More

The Western Sands Motel met or exceeded all of our expectations during a recent trip out to Indio. The AC worked well, there was a well-maintained pool, and cleanliness wasn't an issue. The family who runs the hotel is a great bunch and is very responsive to any requests you may have during your stay. Centrally-located with extra parking for... More

This place is ok if you are extremely tight on funds and need a place to crash. The "kitchen" was absolutely falling apart - drawer fronts literally falling off the front of the drawers, grimy feeling and looking inside and out - i mean, for gosh sakes - put some friggin shelf paper in them, at least! Absolutely NOTHING in... More

Seems to be family owned which is nice. The staff was very nice and welcoming. Very clean easy to find and close to everything :) I wasn't charged until I checked in and they were so sweet to call and check on me to make sure I was ok when they noticed an unregistered vehicle near my room.
