“Good alternative if casino hotels are all booked!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012 via mobile

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!

Great little vintage find! Had a late night stop over after returning from the Grand Canyon and was wonderfully surprised with the entire stay. Appeared to be more in the business/industrial area but this place was clean, comfortable and a great bargain. Andrea checked us in and got us a suite overlooking the pool. Fantastic bed, clean rooms, super friendly staff and continental breakfast with hot food, what more can you ask for? We had no trouble getting a late check out so we could enjoy the pool all to ourselves. Put it in Palm Springs and it would cost double! Would stay again. Thanks to the whole staff for making this a great night and remembering what customer service used to be.

Robiok,

Let me say how very happy we were to read your review--and what a thrill it was to hear such kind comments on Andrea. She is one of our key front desk agents--and takes a vociferous zeal in her customer service acumen.

And it is feedback like this we find very motivating--and so immensely encouraging.

We look forward to having you come back and stay with us on your next visit.

The Motel is probably 1970's vintage and generally well maintained. The grounds are quite attractive and neat. The motel is right across the business highway from a rail line that carries freight trains but the noise was surprisingly comforting rather than annoying. Beds and furnishings are clean and comfortable. The 2nd floor windows are floor-to-ceiling so leave the sheers drawn. The room I stayed in was in need of minor repairs: the bathroom exhaust fan was clogged with lint, the ensuite jacuzzi was missing a facia screw, nothing serious just normal wear and tear. Staff was wonderful and the breakfast excellent. Staff was also helpful in providing guidance for eateries; nothing is close so some driving is needed. Because of the one-way business highway, care is needed in getting in and out of the facility, a GPS is really helpful.

Room Tip: If noise is an issue, get a room farthest from the railroad.

Dear Michael,

Thanks for the recent review of the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. We understand how busy things can get--and to sit and take the time write a review on Trip Advisor is greatly appreciated.

And a huge opportunity for us to keep on improving our hotel--and responding to the needs of our guest. Bottom line is this: we need each and every guest to walk away feeling satisfied and pleased with their decision to stay with us.

And our goal is to achieve this 100% of the time.

Needless to say, we recognize this may not be a truly realistic goal. But trust us, we pride ourselves on going after 100% satisfaction with vociferous zeal. And while the hotel has, as you said, a 1970's feel to the outside, we also pride ourselves on updating our rooms almost every year. From brand new beds, to new furniture, to our brand new 37' inch Flat Screeen TV's that are being put in every room...we are never resting.

Or taking things for granted.

Once again, thanks for sharing your observations. And your review, just like all of the reviews, will be passed around to our entire staff. It makes a huge difference to our staff to know what we are doing right--and where we have room for improvement.

Hope to see again on your next stay!

Sincerely,

Aaron Segal
General Manager

Area was a little worrisome when we arrived but we were greeted with friendly staff. Beautiful 24 hour pool, breakfast was amazing no expense spared for a continental. Breakfast staff was very friendly even though very busy, Beds were comfortable and nicely made grounds carefully kept and lovely very close to I-5, the room though needed alot of cosmetic repairs scratched walls and bathroom, a bit over priced for the state of the rooms, of 4 encounters with front desk staff 2 were wonderful the other two were appeared annoyed that we interrupted their conversation with other staff members.

Indio doesn't offer much to do with a family when not visiting relatives. However between the pool, TV, and movie selection to choose from along with the free WIFI that the kids could go on their computers with there was seldom a bored moment. The continental breakfast was delicious and it was nice to be able to read the complimentary USA Today Newspaper along with it. Overall a great place to stay.
