This hotel/timeshare is located in the heart of Indian Wells, a very upscale community near Palm Springs. We purchased a week via "last minute vacations" and therefore are speaking from another perspective....the "last minute" crowd. We got a great deal for the week, so all the annoying parts of this timeshare reflect the price we paid. However, for people who... More

The front entrance is under construction right now because the restaurant out front is moving to a new center right next to... More

We stayed at this hotel using an RCI week and it was a disappointment.. I can't really call it a hotel or resort. It is a modified motel. The "suites" are really just small rooms. And I mean small.

“We like ground floor rooms, but like every multi-floor timeshare, there is some noise from above, so it's always a tradeoff. We get the same kind over overhead noise at the Marriotts.”
