Not bad

Check in was super fast and the front staff was very friendly. I thought the bed was too soft for my comfort. Also, the clock and lights were unplugged. All the doors were quite loud when closing. Finally, the a/c unit does not do fan-and-a/c at the same time, so instead you get an a/c which turns on and off constantly all night. I found it annoying. I would stay here again at a discount, but probably not at full price.

great quiet resort if thats what you are looking for

It is not centrally located if you are looking to walk to dinner places or social places. You will have to drive but the pool area is nice and large.

Lovely place but...

This is a beautiful hotel ,the pool is nice,and jacuzi. we were charged extra for a king tho our online rez said we could get either. The breakfast for free left out any extras the muffins were dry and tasteless,the oatmeal had no additions except sugar,the fruit ran out and the waffles were frozen. It was disappointing. We did not find anywhere to buy snacks, so got hungry and left. If I went back I would order room service breakfast and bring my own munchies.

Has what we needed.

This was our fifth year staying at Indian Wells Resort Hotel. We attend the PBN Paribas Tennis Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. The resort is one half mile from the event. IWRH is the closest lodging to the event and has reasonable pricing. The resort provides mini bus shuttle service to and from the Tennis Garden every half hour. This service is very valuable as you are relived of driving and parking your own vehicle each day. The tennis event has over four hundred thousand attendees over the twelve days. So if you are looking for a place to stay while in the area for tennis IWRH works well. The IWRH was founded in the early 1950s by Lucile Ball and Ricky Ricardo. Located on Hwy 111, the main roadway that connects all of the local towns and cities. We have stayed in a suite the last three years and are very pleased with the room and view of the golf course and mountains that greats us. Our first two years there we had standard rooms and not near as pleasant. The gym is lacking and small, restaurant has a fair selection of food choices with ok pricing, the staff is pleasant and accommodating, parking is easy. There is live entertainment most evenings. The building is a bit dated but pleasant. Next to IWRH is another resort that is much newer and shares the shuttle service. The cost would be more than $125 per night over IWRH. We will continue to stay at IWRH. If you have the extra financial ability you my decide otherwise. I hope this review is helpful to people considering to stay at Indian Wells Resort Hotel.

Tennis Tournament Getaway

This hotel is very close to Indian Wells tournament and does have a complimentary shuttle. That's the best and pretty much only feature of the hotel stay. Every night the place is booked with a Frank Sinatra knockoff band, so even if you wanted to dine or drink there you can't. The breakfast that is included is at Motel 6 levels.

Looking for a great restaurant, try Castelli . The Australian Crab Legs are out of the world. It's pricey but worth it.

Just what I was looking for

There is a nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast was included and was quick which I appreciated as I was there on business. The lobby bar was a bit over-priced, I found better value at the bar across the street. I would stay there again however.

Soccer weekend and more

We went to Palm Desert for a Soccer Tournament, and got more by staying at this hotel. Location was great, within easy reach of the soccer park and the Living Desert museum which was our other prime destination. We had fun at the pool, and the nightly "Sinatra" shows were fun!
