Just got back from spending Memorial Day weekend down in Palm Springs area and booked here because there were no rooms available at any of casinos we wanted to visit. My partner and I wanted to check out the casinos around Indio and Mecca so this motel was ideally located. From the motel Fantasy Springs and Spotlight 29 was 7 min away by car,Augustine casino was 15 min, Red Earth casino (across from Salton Sea) was 30 min away, downtown Palm Springs was 40 min and Agua Caliente 30 min away. The motel is less than 10 min to Riverside County Fair Grounds and 20 min to the Salton Sea SRA gates.
Checking in was a breeze and the staff very friendly and helpful. The lobby desk held complimentary lemonade and dates for their guests. The lobby itself was equipped with a visitors center that held travel brochures for points of interest, a large selection of dvds and a small but well equipped breakfast area. The motel pool is just outside the lobby doors and pretty big compared to others. When we checked in 3 separate families were at each corner of the pool enjoying the onsite BBQ grills and using the pool that had enough room to accommodate more people. The pool is open 24 hours and towels are given out at the lobby desk.
The room we were given was 318 with 2 double beds, a large frig, coffee/tea maker, flat screen tv, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, a large desk with 2 chairs and comp toiletries. The only complaints is the water in the shower never got as hot as we liked and the water pressure seemed to be a bit low so it took awhile to finish bathing. The air conditioning unit did its job though was somewhat loud when it turned on. I am a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me but my friend said it woke her up during the night so she used earplugs. Another review mentioned that the bathroom fan was also loud which we also experienced but it wasn't as loud as what was previously described from that review. The bathroom was large enough for 2 people to use, the room was clean and not too dated.We appreciated the block out curtains, the premium bedding and lots of soft pillows!
