    « Handy for the Joshua Tree NP Cottonwood entrance »

    We stayed here for two nights, after a 3 hour drive from LA. It was pretty easy to find despite the road layout having changed since our rental's SatNav was last updated! The hotel is very friendly, both staff and customers, and the room was fine. The breakfast is basic but plentiful, handy for stocking up on calories before a day's hike. The area round the hotel is largely empty with only one restaurant (El Campanario) within walking distance. The empty lots nearby give it a slightly unsafe feel, although we had no problems. There is an offer of earplugs in the room, presumably for the trains that run nearby. We could barely hear them so this was not an issue for us. All-in-all, a good value hotel.

    « Trip to the Rental in AZ »

    First off, this was our first time staying at this Hotel, we normally stay close to the freeway. However, we brought our dog and required a pet friendly hotel. This hotel is about two and one half miles from the free way, not what we were told. It is in a depressed area of Indio as well. My truck has a fancy alarm on the key fab notifying you if there is a lntruder in the truck . I'm not sure if I want to find out. I'll just call security I guess. The room was nice and breakfast was great. I learned how to use the new waffle machines and it was great. We had a pleasant stay but a slower start because of the location.

    « One Night - comfortable stay »

    We spent the day hiking JTNP and landed at Best Western a bit worn out. The place was just what we needed ... relatively clean, comfortable, and quiet. The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was ample and the beds comfortable. The breakfast room was overcrowded as they usually are and the staff struggled to keep up with refreshing the food and keeping it clean (no thanks to some less-than-helpful guests).

    « Relaxing Stay »

    I have been stopping here, not only for its rooms, but also because it's a really good central location in the desert. The rooms are nice and comfortable. You have a great selection for breakfast in the morning. It's always a pleasure to stay here. The staff, Jessica, Martha, Peter, Krystal, Jacob, (just to name a few) are always very courteous and helpful. This is truly a memorable place for me and my family. We did have a suite this time and it was spacious with a full sized refrigerator and stove. Thank you to the Manager Aaron and all the staff for making this Hotel one of my favorites.

    Very nice room...comfortable and clean. The amenities were pleasant and the pool was fun. We had a suite and the room was spacious. The bathroom was small but adequate. The kitchen area had plenty of dishes, etc. to make a meal. I would stay here again.

    We had a very pleasant stay. The staff could not have been more helpful. Really enjoyed the wide variety of items available for the complementary breakfast. The heated swimming pool is quite large. The location was also handy for us attending the Indian Wells tennis tournament.

    Just back from another great stay at Date Tree Inn. Been going to this hotel annually for over 20 years. Always clean, comfortable and convenient. Hotel staff are warm, friendly and very accommodating, especially Aaron and Jacob. Each year this hotel seems to get a facelift in one way or another. Great new pancakes machine adds even more variety to the complimentary breakfast. Don't miss the delicious dates when you check in.

    « Good visit for family vacation! »

    We had to switch hotels last minute and found rooms available here. A quick check of online reviews looked positive so I booked and am glad we did. This hotel is a bit out of the way and an older property but has a lot of positives. The hotel grounds are beautifully landscaped and it has a large heated pool and hot tub. The hotel is divided up into three separate 2 story buildings. Front desk and breakfast staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel breakfast had a nice variety. Beds were super comfortable and it was quiet all three nights of our stay. I found price to be a bit expensive for what the rooms were like but there were events in town and it wasn't out of line compared to other area hotels. Housekeeping wasn't overly impressive as not all used items were replaced in room daily and the hall carpet was gross and wasn't vacuumed the entire time we were there.

    « Convenient location, pleasant stay »

    We didn't have any problems to report on this trip. It is a standard best western hotel with some updates made to the room. It was convenient for us, since we came from Anza Borrego State Park and were en route to Joshua Tree National Park. The staff was able to provide a list of places to eat in the area with directions & recommendations which was much appreciated.

    « Great stay, good rate and fantastic staff! »

    I chose this hotel because of the great rate and because I noticed that the management gives a personal response to each of guest reviews submitted on trip advisor. Many hotels give a generic response on trip advisor but the management at this Best Western hotel give a personal and individual response addressing any issues or concerns a guest may have encountered during their stay. Any concerns are addressed and any praise is appreciated. Upon check in the staff greeted us and gave us a couple options for the type of room we could have for our 3 night stay. Our room was on the ground floor in the 3rd building and close to the pool - just what we wanted. The room was clean and beds comfortable, was cleaned and restocked every day. The hotel grounds and pool area were nicely groomed and clean. The breakfast had a good variety of breakfast items. As mentioned before the Palm Springs area was busy that weekend and room rates that were very high everywhere. This hotel was very accommodating with giving me the same reasonable rate for all 3 nights. I cannot give enough praise to the front desk staff...professional and so friendly. They really do appreciate your business and are genuinely concerned to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I would definitely stay here again.

    Very quiet and very clean. This hotel was well managed, well cared for. Staff were polite and helpful. Good breakfast. My only preference would be for there to be somewhere we could walk for dinner. But there were many options close by.

    « Who knew? »

    Where do I begin? Let's start with the Front Desk staff, Kevin. What a super nice guy who let us know all about the free amenities the hotel had to offer. What a blessing. Date night, my hubby and I decided to go all out: Dinner, hotel, Lyft chauffeur services, and the Temptations with the Four Tops concert with late night out dancing at the Lit Lounge. We pulled out all the stops but Fantasy Springs, Quality Inn, and Holiday Inn were all booked. Fortunately for us. The Best Western Date Tree hotel really lived up to their name ?The Date Hotel? room staff, food services, reservations, janitorial, grounds keeper, everyone of them, including but not limited to, Sara all were so welcoming and concerned about making our one night stay exceptional. It was! We will be back again with our grand babies for all night swimming and very clean perfectly heated jacuzzi.

    « A Respite for Travelers »

    This hotel is a great place to stay for use as a base, then go out on day trips, read a book on the comfortable patio or enjoy the pool. The coffee is always on, with a sumptuous variety of breakfast options each morning. The staff members are courteous and always go out of their way to be most accommodating. The manager, Aaron Segal, is hands-on in overseeing the daily tasks at hand. The grounds are beautiful and meticulous, constantly being pampered for happy horticulture. Nearby is a Mexican restaurant for excellent home-made meals, generous portions at reasonable prices. THE hotel for maximum appreciation of the Coachella Valley.

    This is my favourite motel in the Cochella Valley. Neat as a pin, friendly staff, well located, and tremendous value for money. The breakfasts are good value, with fresh fruit always a hit. And the coffee is hot!

    While stopping for a travel break between California and Arizona we found this quiet hotel in Indio, California The hotel isn't far from the I10 easy on and off . The room is very clean and comfortable with a nice size refridgerator for someone who may need it. Breakfast is very good so no need to go out looking for a place to eat in the morning. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is our second stay there and it won't be our last.

    I have stayed at this property several times over several years . Each time has been consistently excellent. The rooms and grounds are keep impeccably. The staff...Jessica is wonderful, very helpful and accommodating. If you are going to or from Palm Desert you need to make this property a stop. I wish every Best Western had this standard of quality and customer service.

    « A disappointing return visit »

    We have stayed here before and given it a good review because we found it quite fit-for-purpose as a one-night rest stop on trips from the CA coast to southern AZ. This visit, however, was very disappointing. First, we were greeted with the smell of cigarette smoke in a smoke-free room. We could detect it in the hallway. We were too road weary to ask for another room. During a bathroom trip during the night my wife was greeted by a cockroach. Those two things alone are enough for a much lower rating than on our prior stop. Also upon arrival we reported to the front desk the smell of natural gas in the parking lot, which seemed to be coming from a small structure in the area behind our building. The next morning the smell was still present. We don't know if this is a safety concern but it was certainly an unusual thing to encounter that close to a hotel. Our room seemed as weary as we were ? chipped furniture and paint; frayed carpet; chipped bathroom mirror. The bed wasn't very comfortable. The breakfast offered was good, with the offerings being kept fresh, warm and well stocked. Unfortunately, the serving area for most of the food is in a narrow hallway that made it very difficult for guests to use it and to go and from the room where the tables were located. A redesign of this area would be nice. At checkout the front desk gave us a $25 credit for the smoke smell and cockroach encounter. The desk clerk mumbled a halfhearted "Sorry about that" without ever looking up from the computer screen. She didn't seem to care much. We left feeling we would rate our visit as a one-star experience. But, after responding to a BW survey, we received a very quick and very nice apology from the general manager, who credited us with the full cost of the room that had the smoke and roach problem. His sincere response was much appreciated and if further action is taken to address the issues then this place could return to a solid choice for weary travelers.

    Well we needed desperately to get out of the cold!! So where do we go - our favorite place in the desert Best Western Date Tree! Spent Christmas with the family and off to the desert for New Years! Welcomed back by wonderful front desk employees, had a great week, watched free movie rentals in our very comfortable room, had great breakfasts and an impromptu little gathering with the employees working New Year's Eve!! All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable trip!!

    The smell. The broken window. The ?breakfast'. This place needs a major refurb and could also use an acoustic separation upgrade. I'm sure if you're off the rails at Coachella it will do but otherwise, no. Total rip-off.

    The hotel is super clean, comfortable and friendly. Everything feels ?like new'. I can't remember the woman that check us in, but it was really late. She was friendly and accommodating, especially when I came to the realization I had forgotten my toothbrush; she was quick to offer me a toothbrush and toothpaste. In the morning at the front desk, Aaron and Josh wished us a good morning and asked about our Christmas plans while checking out. Josh also invited us to partake in a really solid breakfast spread. Overall the place is and A+ / S ranked hotel. Will definitely return next time I visit my family.

    Only stayed one night but the staff and amenities were very nice. Sarah at the front counter was very helpful and quick with our check in. Josh did a great job keeping the breakfast food stocked and the area clean. Jacob was very quick and friendly with our checkout as well. The cleaning staff was very courteous. My wife and I used the Jacuzzi for a little midnight dip and it was very relaxing. Will definitely stay again!

    « Very nice, pet friendly hotel »

    I stopped here for one night on my way from LA to Tucson with my 2 large dogs. I wasn't expecting much, just a place to spend the night that allowed dogs. I pleasantly surprised by how wonderfully nice everything was -- the staff, the room, the grounds. The staff is very friendly, the grounds and rooms are immaculate. Very laid back attitude about the dogs. For dinner, they have a list of local restaurants with good driving direction to each. Self-serve breakfast buffet in the morning with good coffee. I highly recommend this hotel.

    A comfortable hotel with helpful staff. The rate includes a buffet breakfast, with hot and cold choices. The grounds are nice.

There is a train track across the street which might be noisy but in the back of the premises was no problem

    « Good motel, but train and traffic noise »

    I am very surprised that recent comments have not written about the train and traffic noise at this location. The Date Tree is on Indio Blvd. and across from a very active train track. We always come prepared. I had my ear plugs, noise machine, and we turned on the fan (no a/c if fan is on). No bath tub, only a shower. There are no services within walking distance of the property. However, price was good, property is well-maintained, nice customer service, right off of the freeway (although GPS is a little strange). Be prepared to ask for a room to lessen train noise.

    My wife and I checked in late Saturday night after having celebrated our friends 40th birthday. After a long night of drinking, dancing, and catching up with great friends, we looked forward to good nights sleep before we made our trek back home to L.A. We were immediately welcomed by the hotels friendly staff who made our check in experience pleasant and speedy. We found our room to be very clean and the bed as comfortable as our bed at home. We will definitely be back and will recommend all of our friends visiting Indio to stay at this wonderful hotel.

    « Straight Forward and Clean »

    So, we didn't really plan this stop. We thought we would find some place when we jumped off the freeway and the first place tried was full and very spendy. Back on I-10 and a bit further down the road we found the Date Tree property. We were pretty much spent from our drive of the day and didn't explore to find dinner. Instead we ordered pizza from nearby and had a bit of wine for dinner. There are train sounds much of the time during the night but it is not offensive... especially since I tend to like trains. About three in the morning there was a cricket tuning up by the window but when I investigated it went silent and never came back.. Staff was appreciative when I mentioned this during check out. I would stay there again and felt that easy access from I-10 was a plus. The room was clean and the staff attentive.

    « Nice place to sleep for one night. »

    The staff here is very nice, and we loved that they offered us dates when we checked in-it was very cute since I guess this area is known for the fruit. The rooms were average, we had a couple of bugs in our room, but it's out in the desert, so it wasn't too surprising. There wasn't an elevator (at least not one we could find), so we had to lug our cooler and bags up the stairs. Additionally, the door knob on the bathroom door was busted so the door would not close all the way. We reported it to the front desk and the person who answered seemed to not care. Overall, it was an average hotel, we would stay here again if we are in Indio again.

    VERY nice hotel with spacious room! We had a private balcony with 2 chairs and a small table which was extremely pleasant to sit out on at night.Staff was exceptionally nice and helpful and breakfast was very good. Trains close by present a bit of noise if you are sensitive but since we were so pleasantly surprised by the hotel and the room, we didn't mind at all. I always travel with ear plugs anyway and trains are better than screaming loud hotel guests!

    I just love this place and can't stay anywhere else. It is perfect in every way. The service, amazing. The cleanliness, spotless. The location, on the spot. When you travel with family and small children, there is so much to worry about, but this place I feel like takes the worry away. The rooms are so convenient for family, especially the suites. The pool is perfect, has grill right there. The kids can swim while you grill hot dogs. And it is beautiful. It is old Palm Springs as in the movies. Can't say enough good things about the staff. Aaron is our guy. Thank you to everyone who entertains a crazy moms every request and makes it a vacation for me too.

    Our stay was very enjoyable. The buildings and grounds are immaculate. Our room was pretty much standard for a Best Western, The beds were great, the furnishings well-maintained, and the AC, TV, DVD mini fridge and coffee pot all worked as advertised. The most pleasant surprise was the complimentary breakfast, probably the most complete and good-tasting one I've had in a hotel in ages. The salsa for the scrambled eggs was definitely home made and outstanding. As we were checking out, the manager, who was very friendly and helpful was conversing with another couple, in, of all things, fluent German---another surprise one would not expect out here in the desert. It made this couple's morning as German speakers are pretty rare in the U.S. I would stay here again.

    This was a middle-of-the-road hotel. The AC worked well, most importantly, and parking was easy. The staff when we checked in were weirdly hostile. I asked what the hours for breakfast were, and she huffily told me she'd get to that, and then went into a 5-minute speech about the hotel. I was in room 121, and someone in another room who clearly wanted to call 1-213-... kept forgetting to dial 9 and dialed our room several times in the middle of the night. The staff were unwilling to help, or offer any sort of refund. Of course they could easily prevent the problem by requiring guests to push another button, like the pound key, in order to dial in between rooms. Breakfast was okay. Not a memorable place.

    « Gives more, charges less: Good choice. »

    We were greeted warmly and our reservations were all correct. Bowls of fruit and coffee were available, and their breakfast is truly a step above most other BWs where we have stayed. Our problem is that the accessible room was as far away from everything else as it could be. Ice, pool, front desk, breakfast room etc. We didn't use the pool for that reason. The whole first building was closed for renovations so that must be taken into consideration, but if they will still put those rooms at the far end of the building, my complaint remains. BW Long Beach had much better showers, but that is the only way they were outclassed.

    « Best Breakfast »

    The fresh strawberries and blueberries were a great addition to an already outstanding breakfast. We enjoyed our stay and it met our basic needs while traveling: good bed, clean room, pet friendly with not fee, helpful staff, and wonderful breakfast. The hotel is a bit dated, but that's okay. They are currently remodeling.

    The pool is open 24 hours. The place felt like an old studio apartment building converted into a motel. People seemed to be living there. The room we got had been recently updated with lots of faux granite in the bathroom. Clean and comfortable.

    « Great pool for a hot summer day »

    Traveling across the desert during the summer is not one's favorite part of vacation, but I found a bit of an oasis in Indio, CA. This Best Western has a large crystal clear pool that is kept open 24 hours a day. An evening dip was just what I needed to relax at this just off I-10 hotel. A good night's sleep was followed up with a big complimentary breakfast. With a great cup of coffee in a to-go cup I was ready to continue my traveling. Thanks Best Western for your friendly service too.

    After a long exhausting day of driving through the blazing heat of Southern Arizona then on into the continuing inferno of the Salton Sea Indio area, it was very welcoming and comforting to call it a day at the Best Western Date Tree. The front desk gentleman greeted us with such a compassionate, helpful, yet professional attitude. The room was extremely comfortable and cool. The breakfast was the most comprehensive we've ever found at any motel or hotel. In addition to hot prepared eggs and meats, they also had fresh fruits including sliced strawberries and blueberries, plus many other morning choices. An over all great place to stay.

    « Coachella 2017 visit »

    My husband & I go to Coachella every year for our anniversary and this year marks #11! We've been staying at the Date Tree Best Western since 2013. We've stayed at a lot of hotels in Indio, Palm Desert & Palm Springs area & we really enjoy the Date Tree BW. Once we discovered this gem, this is our place! It's super close to the Polo Field so we save a lot of time logistically getting to the festival (plus the hotel has a shuttle service)!!!! It's located right off the 10 freeway and close to local grocery stores for any necessities you have to pick up or restock. Driving in, check in is super easy! They just remodeled their lobby with a more modern look. I really like the new furniture and open space business center. Upon checking in they gave a thoughtful goodie bag with Gatorade, muffin and other little snacks. Their staff is always so friendly and helpful. Parking is easy, you can pull up to your building so unloading/loading is super convenient. We always get one of the suites which is nice because it has a comfy living room area with a full kitchen with 3 barstools, a shower + jacuzzi tub and large bedroom. This year they've made a few renovations. All the suites have nice plantation shutters instead of the curtains. It's a nice upgrade and I enjoyed cracking open a few blinds, while still feeling like I had privacy. The kitchen also looked like it had a facelift as well. I've always loved the pool at this Best Western! It has a pretty landscape of palm trees but not a lot of trees that blow debri in the pool. There are plenty of lounge beds to lay out (my favorite), plus they have 3-4 tables with tropical straw umbrellas if you want to eat/drink in the shade. The pool & Jacuzzi area are always very CLEAN and even when a lot of people are out, I never feel like it's over crowded. I've enjoyed many screw drivers floating away in this pool! Extra bonus?. There is an awesome taco lady by the poolside! Martha makes some killer tacos and ribs! For being one of the biggest party weekends of the year, the hotel is super quiet and everyone is very respectful.

    We are senior citizens and were in need of a hotel that accepted 2 small dogs while our RV was being repaired. What an amazing stay. Everyone was helpful and the service was exceptional. Room was quite large with refrigerator (we needed for our diabetic dog insulin) microwave and all the other touches a traveler needs. The office attendant Jacob was a delight and made us feel like we were important. We had to lengthen our stay because repairs took longer than expected, five days instead of one. Breakfast had so many things to offer from hot to cold. Pool was heated and refreshing. Arron, the hotel manager was so helpful and gave us some special rates due to our unusual circumstances with the RV. We absolutely would stay at this Best Western for the overall wonderful experience. Thank you Arron and Jacob. The Quesada's

Jacob gave my wife his sympathy over the lost. She told me that was sweet that he remembered why we stayed last. The hotel was crowed with visitors for the Coachella Festival. It was nice to see people having fun. The room we got was a suite. It was clean and comfortable. The housekeeper came to our room asking if we need anything more. She said she was busy, but wanted to make sure we were set. I wish I could remember her name. She was angel.

    A large motel with two-story buildings without elevator. We drove passed the office without notice any sigh. Dark colored furnitures make the room less attractive.

    Stayed one night in order to visit Anza Borrego early the next morning. Staff at check-in and check-out were super nice and professional, and when we asked for extra blankets and help with the air conditioner, someone was sent promptly. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable; the hotel was quiet and we slept well. The breakfast buffet was diverse, plentiful and better than average. The only complaint would be that the air conditioner was still not ideal - with a first floor room, we did not want to leave the window open (which we had done the prior evening in Desert Hot Springs). It cycled on and was too cold, then cycled off and was too quickly suffocating. I would definitely stay here again.

    We attended a family event in Indian Wells and needed a room for one night. As you may know, to find a reasonably priced, clean room in this part of the world..... It ain't easy! Don't routinely stay at Best Westerns (usually Hamptons or the like) but we liked the reviews and gave it a try. The desk folks were very busy but took the time to be friendly and professional. This is a 100% non-smoking hotel but that doesn't always mean much. The room was clean, no smoke smell, very comfortable bed and it looked like the room and bath were recent updated. Great shower, medium size fridge in room and very nice breakfast setup in the morning. Great job BW!!

    Had a great stay here, thanks to a wonderful staff. We were on our way to a 15 day cruise, but took a detour to visit friends in Indio. We had our cruise suitcases plus our detour suitcases and we didn't want to leave any in our car overnight. Peter, a back room worker, noticed my wife was struggling with her suitcase, jumped in and grabbed the bag and took it up the stairs for her. (I had the other cases but turned down his offer- pride and all) Jacob at the desk was gracious and pleasant, anticipating our questions. Rooms were clean and the neighborhood noise wasn't a problem. The breakfast was well stocked with eggs, Canadian bacon, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, plus four juices, coffee, several varieties of bread, cereal,bananas without black spots, plus waffles and the usual breakfast items. There was ample inside seating, plus outside seating. Both were options because the television wasn't turned on Fox News, unusual for motel breakfast rooms. We were impressed. This motel deserves its ranking, primarily because of folks like Peter.

Our room was big and immaculate -- always a plus. We did not have to squeeze between the furniture to get around. Once again, the hot breakfast was positively fantastic with more choices than anyone could eat in one sitting. This hotel is being renovated, but nothing they are doing disrupted our stay. After dinner we went for a swim in a huge crystal-clear pool and the jacuzzi did wonders after sitting in the car all day. The pool area in so spacious and there are several barbecue grills available to the hotel guests. This would also be a great hotel for a corporate outing or any large family and friends gathering.

    We left LA ti drive back to Phoenix but it was clear by 10.30pm that we weren't going to make it that evening. So we turned to Best Western - as you do - and were delighted with the one we found. Yes, it's being refurbished and the smell of paint was terrible, but we were so tired and the bed was so comfy we fell into it, and slept. Breakfast was quite substantial - if you like carbs. Very short on the fruit. But the oatmeal was terrific, the tea/coffee more than passable, ditto the toast machine and my husband's "go-to" breakfast treat - waffles. We would definitely stay here again on route in and out of LA.

    Our (very large) family broke down in Indio, CA late at night. We miraculously chugged into the Best Western Date Tree Hotel. When I walked in to the office to see if there was availability, I was greeted by the most kind, attentive, generous and sympathetic employee, Adri. Adri and another employee, who was about to clock out, sprung into action and prepared two adjoining rooms with two extra roll away beds to accommodate our large family. Adri explained all of the fabulous amenities and humongous breakfast...she even offered to help us to our room. I teared up at just how incredible Adri and the hotel staff was in our time of dire need. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The beds were VERY comfortable. The refrigerator was so helpful. The next day when we had to figure out our vehicle situation, our family (with full bellies from the perfectly stocked breakfast) watched free family friendly DVD's offered from the front lobby. The staff was so understanding and generously gave us a late check out while we ended up having to purchase a new vehicle. We are so grateful to come upon this oasis in the desert. We were treated so well by Adri and all of the staff. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. We could not have found a better place to stay.

From the super courteous staff, to the immaculate and spacious room, to the huge pool and spa, we were completely happy with our choice of hotels... and the breakfast the next morning put this hotel over the top! What a beautiful presentation of a tremendous selection of breakfast items... hot eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy (my husband's favorite), waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, pastries, fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries, cereal... just about anything you could think of for breakfast was available. We will definitely stay at this hotel again. Many thanks to their entire staff.

    « Great Staff, Rooms Needs Some Serious Love »

    Pretty excited to read so many great reviews about this hotel, planned a 1 night stay on our through Cali with my wife, daughter, mother and sister! Check in was a breeze, the lady who assisted us was extremely friendly and it was done in a flash. She provided great info regarding building layout, breakfast, movie rentals, pool and local restaurants. As we began to take luggage in to our building (building 3), we realized there's no elevator! It's only 1 floor up but for me, recently in a car accident, stairs are painful. My mother being older stairs aren't great either so that was a little frustrating. We stayed in room 345, a 3 bed 2 room family suite! The room was very dark, lighting was horrible! The door to the balcony was literally falling apart, see my attached pictures! Carpet was lifting, paint was missing, broken windows screens, scratches and dings on the TV stands, just not what I've become accustomed to staying at when using Best Western Properties! The beds were very comfy, the bathroom was clean, but overall I was very disappointed in the lack of upkeep this property or at least this room in particular has had! The service would have me try again but this room and in sure others need some serious work!

    Well run, pleasant hotel. Rooms were spacious and the site well maintained. I would stay here again. The only item that keeps the rating from 5 is the unlocked buildings. The rooms are all locked by prox cards but the buildings (3each)are not locked. This needs to be changed.

    « Very comfortable »

    The room was clean and the staff polite and helpful. Comfortable stay. My only reservations were: there was no freezer compartment for my cooler ice packs, there was no tub, only a shower, which is not so great for small kids, and the breakfast room plays news channels, not always appropriate content for my kids. These were all very minor points, which is why it didn't affect my rating. Thank you for a pleasant stay!

    This hotel was great from start to finish. When you check in, there is refreshing fresh fruit water and yummy dates waiting for you at the front desk. All the staff were really nice and our beds were super comfy. The pool is awesome and huge. It makes you feel like you're at a pricey resort. Breakfast was standard Best Western except that they had fresh sautéed peppers and onions along with yummy green fresh salsa and cheese to go over your eggs. We loved this place and are staying again on our return home!

    « If you want sleep then don't stay here »

    Way to noisy. If you must stay here then try to get on the second floor. Anything by the back doors on the first floor is going to mean you won't get any sleep. People come in and out of the back door constantly throughout the night and it slams shut each time. The noise is loud and you won't be able to sleep through it.

    « The best place to stay for Coachella »

    Each year I go to Coachella I make sure I get a room at this hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and always available in case of an emergency. I was warmly greeted upon arrival and graciously cared for during my stay, as is usual. The breakfast that is included is a life saver on most mornings. Additionally, the pool and jacuzzi are open for 24 hours, so after a long dusty day you can go for a dip and take a load off your sore feet. Truly there is no better option for the price in the whole valley. I'm already looking forward to my stay next year.

    « Super close to Coachella and super comfortable! »

    Our stay at the Best Western location for the weekend of Coachella could not have been any better. The continental breakfast was a perfect start to our day, from eggs to hash browns and even waffles, we never felt the need to leave the hotel in the morning. 24/7 pool is a godsend when returning from the event to cool down. They even sell hotdogs and hamburgers and other goodies during lunch time by the pool- everything was super affordable and really convenient. The rooms are clean and spacious and accommodated our group perfectly. Would definitely return next year for the music festival or for any other event- truly a great place to stay!

    This hotel is off the beaten path and is clean and tidy. The location is great for relaxing, gathering with old friends and visiting friends nearby. Our group of retired firefighters were able to visit and enjoy each others company for several days in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff went out of their way to help us out and provide additional tables and chairs around the pool for a great Bar-B-Q. The entire staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make us all feel comfortable. The breakfast area was clean with good food (nice area inside and out to enjoy early morning coffee and conversation).

    « excellent choice in the Joshua Tree-Palm Springs area »

    My husband and I had a tight schedule for a recent trip to Palm Springs for a family wedding. I wanted to visit Joshua Tree National Park in the half-day available after the festivities and needed quick access to the Interstate in the morning. Date Tree was just what I was looking for and turned out to be better than I expected. The room was very comfortable, the fitness room small but adequate, and the breakfast buffet particularly good. The staff is friendly and efficient. When I asked about a dinner restaurant (none visible in the area) the desk clerk whipped out a two page handout with all the area restaurants and directions to find them. A real bonus for us was finding the Shields date market nearby. We enjoyed the best date shake you'll find and sampled varieties of dates never seen in supermarkets. The only difficulty was limiting our choice to what could fit in the cooler.

    « Wonderful oasis »

    I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We called hoping to reserve the family suite and the man who answered, possibly the manager, offered me two adjoining rooms for the same price as the family suite. it was wonderful! The rooms were clean and spacious. The only problem was that there was no elevator and we did have to carry all of our bags up the stairs. The pool is beyond gorgeous, with grills available poolside, little tiki huts with tables underneath and plenty of chaise lounges. The grounds are also beautifully maintained. Breakfast was a bit of a bust because of a huge extended family staying there. My advice in general would be to go early. There was literally no food left when we arrived. And the breakfast hours are NOT extended on Sunday, so again we were skunked on the food. Another bonus is the complimentary DVD lending library in the lobby, not to mention fresh dates and ice water too.

    The only reason I ended up at this hotel is because it was the only room available in the area. I landed at Ontario airport at midnight on a Friday and was planning to get my rental car and find a hotel nearby. As I started driving east toward the desert, I was dismayed to discover that there were no rooms available from the airport through Palm Springs. The Best Western Date Hotel had a room and I jumped at it. The room was large. The hotel is very very clean. The free breakfast was crowded. There was a good selection of food and everything I ate was good. The hotel has a nice swimming pool. This is an older hotel. I felt that it was a good value.

    We were only here for one night, but the lobby, grounds, hallways, and room were all clean and well-maintained. The pool area looked especially inviting. Our room had a large bathroom, plenty of seating and even an upstairs, outdoor patio. Looks like there are several buildings and lots of rooms. We were located in a middle building, so did not hear the trains as much, but I like the sound of trains anyway. We did not have breakfast at the facility so I cannot comment on that aspect. The front desk staff upon arrival and departure were friendly and efficient. Even the groundskeepers and maintenance staff made an effort to say "Hi."

    Very well maintained hotel. Arrived a quite a bit earlier that the 3:00pm check-in, but they were able to have a room available right away. Décor was updated and room very clean. Free breakfast every morning and not the normal continental style breakfast. You can choose between eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon or sausage, hash browns, make your own waffles. Oatmeal, yogurt, bagels....etc. Good way to start the morning. There are train tracks near the property, and freight trains came by quite frequently, but the noise was bearable by the pool and we could not hear them when in the room. Large pool and outdoor whirlpool open 24 hours. They do have a workout room, but very cramped with equipment. No real conveniences close by (i.e....shopping, restaurants), so a car is a necessity. Overall a very good experience and I would not hesitate to book at this hotel again when in the area.

    « Fabulous Customer Service »

    From check-in (engaged, efficient, quick, thorough), to follow-up an hour after check-in ("how is the room?" ... "is there anything you need"?), to sensitivity for an unexpected early check-out, customer service is a clear priority. The property, though not in the most elegant location, is well-maintained, clean, and with a surprising number of amenities. I must give a special "shout-out" to Toni G who was incredibly caring and considerate later in the night when - as a result of a family emergency - we needed to suddenly check-out well in advance of our actual use of the room. I would have been understood and was entirely expected by me that Toni would have shrugged her shoulders with a trite "Sorry, but it's company policy that we can't rebate any of your room payment." However, not only did Toni refund room cost, she also provided a level of sensitivity and caring that carried me to my car and beyond as we got back on the road to return home to deal with our family emergency. Based on Toni's incredible customer servicing along with the friendly and very efficient servicing upon check-in, I have to say that this local Best Western hires and supports quality staff. The result? A very satisfying experience that allows customers to focus on the most important thing: having fun! Thanks again, Toni. And thank you, Best Western/Indio.

    « Just Fine »

    The service is maybe the best part of this hotel. There are 3 buildings each with 2 floors and we were in the third building. It is easy to get from one building to the next. Check in was fine and the front desk staff was very nice. This is an old hotel and needs some serious updates to lighting, electrical, etc. The decor is nice but doesn't hide the age of the buildings. The lighting in our room was really bad. The bathroom light also turns on the fan which is very loud and really annoying. The heating/AC system is also one of those old systems that is very loud. The water from the tap tasted really chlorinated. My son didn't seem to notice but I did. The beds are comfortable but the blankets are very thin. More substantial blankets would be a plus. Breakfast was standard fare with the waffles, eggs, etc. - nothing special. The coffee was not so good. On a busy morning the traffic flow in the breakfast area is really bad. The layout makes it hard to get from the serving area to a place to sit and eat and there was not enough seating. Location: Right near train tracks which you can hear at night. Unless you like Mexican food there are no nearby restaurants. We got in late after battling crappy LAX to Indio traffic for 4 hours and really did not want to spend any more time in the car than was necessary so not having a nearby place to grab a bit to eat was a huge disappointment. Never having been to Indio, I have no clue about what part of town we were in. Overall I was not impressed with this part of California. The workout room is very small and somewhat useless. The pool area is nice and the pool is a good size but not as big as expected. The rooms do have good-sized refrigerators and microwaves which is a plus. We had great pizza, pasta and salad delivered from Round Table Pizza. I just don't understand the rave reviews as this was pretty average.

    This hotel is okay, room comfortable, toilet was dirty with mold, windows were so dirty we could barely see out of them. That is really not an issue, however it did make the room seem dirty and unwelcoming. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Breakfast is pretty much on par with complimentary hotel breakfasts which is good in my opinion. I felt safe traveling with my son which is the most important issue for me and would stay here again.

    Fingers crossed, as we read previous reviews, and hoped all we read was true.it was! The front desk greeting and check-in at midnight was efficient and inviting. Fresh dates, mints,and lemon water. Information we needed, after a tiring ride in the rain, made checking in a pleasure. Breakfast info and where our Service dog could relieve herself was appreciated. Our room was spacious and clean. Bathroom could have more shelving for toiletries. Heating unit was fairly quiet. Room to room was quiet. Second floor, two way access to psrking lots. Ice and vending on 1st floor.Frig., microwave,coffee maker all adequate. Iron and board in closet. I always bring extra hangers, windex, paper towels, tissue paper to line the clothing drawers after i clean them out. TheTV was good, lots of channels, dvd player, good variety of movies in the lobby. Exercise room off lobby too. Lighting was very ,very good.i cannot stand dark rooms with crappy light fixtures. The lighting and bulb brightness in the room was great, lots of adjustments. The bed was comfortable, extra pllows in closet, with an extra blanket if needed.. Adjustable shower head, comfortable size shower. The desk, two chairs and an upoholstered chair was great for TV watching. Lots of plugs available, wifi reliable. The furniture a little difficult to open drawers. The redue of table tops with granite was a nice update on older furniture to extend its life , i suspect, effective. Fabulous breakfast. Clean,nicely kept grounds. Friendly, earthy employees. Our housekeepers did a fabulous job caring for our requests for our room. The pool looked inviting if it wasn't so darn cold that long weekend we were here. I love trains, so we enjoyed hearing the freight trains pass by in a low tone rumble. Conveient to Fantasy Springs Casino which was lovely, good food too. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again or reccomend this place, unless you're a high ender! Thank you for your genuine hospitality!

    This is a very nice hotel. The breakfast was amazing. There were a lot of food choices--yogurts, cereal, fruit, 2 kinds of waffles, bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy. The best hotel free breakfast I have ever seen. I loved the bowl of dates at the front desk.

    « BW Date Tree good for business »

    A last minute business decision to have to travel to Indio found me having to book on the fly. I banked on the brand name and overall previous experiences at other out of the way places where BW has been for me. This BW lived up to the brand. I was able to get rest and a good continental breakfast during my 2-night stay. Staff are friendly and helpful to travelers.

    « Staff Takes Care of Business »

    We phoned this hotel from the road, after hitting traffic that delayed our trip. They gave us a fair price and when we arrived greeted us with a warm smile. Fresh dates and cool water are on the desk for guests. A wall of DVDs are also available to use in rooms, which are equipped with DVD players. Room was a little frumpy, but comfortable. Some of our fellow guests decided to have an alcohol-fueled dispute in the middle of the night. The staff took care of the matter immediately, and effectively shut down the drama. In the morning, we all enjoyed the ample breakfast buffet, which even featured almond and soy milk options! All in all, a welcome respite from the challenges of highway travel.

    « ABOVE AND BEYOND GREAT!! »

    Enjoyed a two day stay here as we traveled from Moreno Valley to Indio. The room was very well maintained, has a flat screen TV, the bathroom was very nice and roomy, beds were cozy and warm. The best part was the Free WIFI and Breakfast! The breakfast room was pretty big and there was lots to choose from to eat. Everything from fresh made waffles to biscuits and gravy. They even had soy milk! I would recommend this spot to everyone I know traveling out that way and I look forward to staying there again soon! Thanks for a great time!

    This place is off the hook. Our stay was very pleasant. Aaron the manager was awesome, we also interactive with the staff Toni, Krystal, and Adriana the are great. The breakfast is so good all types of different food eggs to fruit salad. My favorite was the biscuits and gravy. They have movies to watch in your rooms. The pool is heated for the cold days in January. I will be back with no hesitation! Great service is what keeps you coming back and that is what you get here at Date Tree Best Western!

    Our first stay at a Best Western was so good that instead of shopping around for other hotels, we just decided to stick with Best Western again. The front desk was friendly, accommodating, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was pretty good, considering they don't have a real kitchen and chef behind the counter. The kids ate up and were well fed. It didn't get easier than Best Western and I highly recommend this chain.

    Just a great place to stay at, the rooms were spaciously comfortable and the hotel staff were so helpful and very courteous! I never had to leave the hotel in the morning for breakfast as there is an amazing breakfast from waffles, oatmeal to eggs and biscuits and gravy..I had a great time there and would recommend it to anyone staying in the Coachella Valley

The staff is Incredible, I travel because of my business and for pleasure, and I make this my 1st choice when in Indio.

    Just returned from our favorite place in the desert!! Best Western Date Tree has the best staff and management! We stay here whenever we are in the desert and feel like it is home. Everyone's very friendly and accommodating, the breakfast is very good and the pool is always sparkling clean and there are barbecues if you feel so inclined.

    Stayed here for one night. It was nothing special, the staff wasn't very friendly, but the room was clean and the location was perfect. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, so this place was just fine.

    « Fit for purpose, at a reasonable price! »

    There's nothing fancy here, but it works just fine for a traveler passing through or for someone staying a while on a budget. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely sized, with refrigerators and microwave ovens. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is easy to access from I-10 and there are a number of places to eat with a mile or two. The breakfast offering is a nicely expanded continental breakfast - eggs, bacon, sausage, make-your-own waffles, oatmeal, fruit, cereal, toast, juice, coffee and tea. Overall, quite comfy. There are second floor rooms with no elevator available, but someone will help to schlep the bags if needed. We did hear one train pass nearby but it was not bothersome.

    Toni help us check in and she was amazing! I was on crutches and we have a newborn and she helped more than most staff. She helped me unload the care and get me with our dog too. The hotel was nice and clean. I could not have been happier with our stay.

    « Excellent family place! »

    We have stayed here every year for the past 7 years. It is by far our favorite place to stay as a family. The breakfast is out of this world!!!! The staff members are friendly and nice. It is extremely clean and tidy too. Would highly recommend this place to anyone going through the area.

    « Excellent customer service »

    After a 10 hour drive, I rolled in and Toni helped me get situated right away. She was really nice and helpful and accommodated all my requests. I wanted to park my truck in front of my window to keep an eye on some valuables (dirtbikes) and she hooked it up. The rooms were clean, the king size bed was comfortable and they even have a big screen LG tv. Wireless internet worked great too, wasn't slow. Breakfast was amazing, they had waffles, pancakes, cereal... the works! It's the best hotel in Indio, every other place down the street looked ghetto as hell!

    « excellent staff service and immaculate hotel and Grounds »

    We originally chose this location because it was our half way point on the drive, Pets of any size were accepted (small fee), and a full breakfast included. We have had good experiences with best Westerns in the past and were hopeful this would not disappoint. This was one of the best maintained properties I have been on, as well as the cleanliness ranks the highest...not a hair or dust bunny anywhere, no stains on carpeting, no smells. Cons: The bed could have used a topper on it as it was stiff and I could feel the outlines of the springs. We were close to the ice machine and I could hear it dumping the trays throughout the night, but that was the only noise. I would definitely stay here on all my trips through Indio.

    This was our second visit to the Date Tree and if anything it was better than the first time. The room was spacious, clean and very well kept. The folks at the front desk were ALWAYS very friendly and accommodating. Toni G was especially helpful and I would be remiss in not thanking her. She answered every question and took the time to make us feel special. We are already booked for next year and would never dream of staying anywhere else when staying in the Indio area.

    « Coachella Music Festival 2015 »

    This was not our first pick of hotels by any means. But the staff were very accommodating and were able to help us secure a room very last minute (1 week before Coachella Music Festival). The inclusive breakfast was more than we had bargained for, lots of variety and choices to choose from-bagels, yogurt, cereal, waffles to name a few. We were charged 300$ a night, which is reasonable given the circumstances (timing and festival). The hotel was only a few minutes away so not only were we pleasantly surprised with our stay, but we also lucked out on a convenient location.

    « Breath of fresh air »

    Came to Indio for a square dance festival. Had booked another hotel a little closer to the venue, but that place was HORRIBLE! Smelly, jacuzzi was unheated, just nasty. Came here and was able to book a room for my last too nights with no problem. Mayra was so helpful at the front desk and made us feel welcomed. The hotel and grounds are clean, beautifully maintained, AND the jacuzzi was nice and hot. Will book here again for next year. Oh, and I almost forgot about the yummy dates you can sample at the front desk! Nice touch....

    A little ways to drive in from Highway 10. No elevator only stairs to the second floor. Hotel is about 5 minutes from restaurants and stores. If in Indio again, we would stay. Good price with Triple A discount.

    This pleasant hotel is a nice place to stay. The rooms are comfortable, the Wifi works ell, the beds are fine and the breakfast as good as can be expected. Nothing special, but very adequate. We would have preferred a ground level room, but did not ask. Our room had a refrigerator with no freezer compartment and that was inconvenient.

    For the price, great hotel. The front desk staff, Toni G, was awesome from the moment we arrived until we left, her service and humor was awesome. Apart from the early morning train that rumbled past like a scene from My Cousin Vinny, this was a great place to stay. Only downside, no restaurants were walkable, so you need a car.

    « Best customer service ever »

    I had the pleasure of staying at the Date Palm while traveling through on business. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating above and beyond. I can truly say that I haven't had customer service like that in quite some time. The hotel and room were beautiful, clean, and well-kept. The bed and pillows were super comfy. I feel like this was more bang for the buck. I will definitely be staying here again when passing through.

    Last room on a very busy weekend Easy to book(by iPhone on the road). Night clerk Toni was wonderful and gracious in making sure that I would have a good night's sleep. The accomodations were clean, well stocked, and with excellent amenities. The bed was perfect and had a full and very satisfying night's sleep. Would stay there anytime. Had stayed at the Venetian in Vegas just prior to this stay,for comparison.

    The Best Western Date Tree Hotel is a great place to stay, relax and enjoy. The large up-dated rooms are comfortable, attractive and very clean. The grounds are spacious and beautiful with an abudance of beautiful trees and grassy areas. The swimming pool is very large and well-maintained. The proberty is reminiscent of a stylish and well-established 60's era motel. I was delighted that it was still a successful and well-maintained business.

    On our arrival we were made to feel very welcome. Staff are very friendly. Nice touch with free film DVDS to borrow from reception. Room was basic but spacious. Loved the big outdoor swimming pool. Price of stay included breakfast which was nothing special but very adequate for us. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip to the USA this was the cheapest and best value. Would definitely stay again.

    « Friendly staff, comfy bed, delicious breakfast ! »

    I stayed 1 night at this hotel. The lady at the Front Desk was extremely friendly, polite. I had a double queens room. Room, bedding was clean, bed was very comfy. Bathroom with a shower nice, clean, not too spacious, but for taking a shower - perfect. Towels were clean, looked new. The complimentary breakfast was a real feast. I got back from the nearby casino ( went to see Deep Purple ) around 6.30 AM, breakfast was ready. The cheese omelet was amazing, yogurt, juices etc, great food selection. At the lobby they have dvd-s available - great movie selection by the way - you can pick any of them for free and watch it in your room. There's a dvd player in every room. It's a nice plus to feel like home. I really liked the fresh dates at the Front Desk, also they have a container there with icy water with lemon. Very nice to welcome the guests with these.

    Traveling with my 88 year old father_in_law, these ladies were so sweet and accommodating. They made,sure we had adjoining room so that we could be close in case he needed us. The gave us water, rather then track, at 10:00 at night to the vending g machine. They even made sure he,was comfortable. Such great girls! Thank you Toni G. And Myra! Worth a try if you're traveling through Indio. Easy to find, super clean and very comfortable! Definitely coming back!!!!,

    « Feels like home in the dessert! »

    Our second time to stay at Best Western Tree Hotel in Indio, Ca. It feels like home as we are comfortable here even in the dessert. One outstanding custom in this hotel is their bowl of dates that welcomes each guest in the check-in counter and the cool fruit flavored water too.

    « Good enough at the right price »

    This place is good enough for most, if the price is right. I see it going for $100 a night and that is not a good deal. We got it for much less and it was just adequate. Location is not good. Neighborhood is not friendly. Railroad ran all night and its very close to the three motel buildings. Busy street is also very close. Is a long way from the rest of the valley, so without a hefty discount, you might as well stay in Palm Desert or the other more desirable areas. No incentive to stop way out there in Indio. Room was renovated, but still a little raw. Air conditioner was quiet, that seems to be getting harder to find, but it blew directly on the bed. I had to place the fabric lounge chair directly in front of it to block the breeze, even on low cool. Hot breakfast is better than most motels, but about average for Best Western.

    « Very comfortable and convenient stay »

    The Hotel was very clean, very well maintained, and very accommodating. Seeing that we had valuables exposed in the back of our truck at check in, they offered to let us park it up front near the lobby so that they could keep an eye on it over night. They even arranged for us to have a room near the lobby so we wouldn't have to walk far to get to our vehicle.

    This trip was to meet newest members of the family. Being at Best Western made this visit relaxing. Family get togethers can be very hectic, but to come back "home" and relax either in the room or by the pool, is always refreshing. The rooms are like soundproof, so noise is never an issue. Thank you

    « Clean and Adequate »

    The hotel is clean and adequate for the cost. It is an older facility with large rooms. Friendly staff and breakfast is ok but not very appetizing. In order to get a King-sized bed I needed to upgrade to a suite. The suite was large but unimpressive - not worth the additional charge.

    « Very Nice For The Price »

    The rooms are very nice and the staff is very accommodating. Free movies (DVD's), wi-fi (no log-in needed, which is a plus), and breakfast. I also loved that the pool and spa are 24 hrs. I would have given a 5 star, but this is definitely a trucker hotel, and with four of us girls traveling together, it was intimidating.

    « A Hidden Gem! Great for concerts, couples and dogs! »

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Date Tree in Indio, September 28 to the 30th and I must say we feel like we found a little hidden gem in Indio! It was a last minute decision to get out of town and we weren't looking to leave the property very much while there, this was more of a couples getaway. When we checked in, my wife Brandy was greeted by the sweetest front desk people and when she came out, told me that they made her feel so welcomed and comfortable. They even gave her extra towels for the pool and told us that it was opened 24 hours a day. Love that! Most hotel pools close at ten and I don't know about you, but my wife and I are night owls and there's nothing more relaxing then a midnight swim under the beautiful, desert sky. Which is exactly what we got at the Date Tree. Oh did I mention we were traveling with our little corgi and he was also welcomed like a little guest of the hotel and we felt very comfortable the entire stay. The room they gave us was room 208 and it looked to be very recently updated, with comfortable beds ( I have a bad back so a good bed is essential and I slept like a baby). It felt extremely clean and safe. There was a mini fridge, a microwave and a flat screen. They even have a wall of DVDs you can can take back to your room. We couldn't sleep so we kept watching movies and trading them in all night. Sure the movies are a bit older, but it's nice to have the option and not have to leave the property. Their continental breakfast is the best I've had, and we usually stay at larger hotels when we visit the desert so we were pleasantly shocked at the spread. It included waffles, eggs, bagels, cream cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice and delicious coffee! Seriously, we were shocked and very happy. The staff was friendly from beginning to end and the location is on the quiet side of town. Sure there's a train near by, but we were in building two and never heard any outside noise when in the room. The pool being open all night long is a huge bonus! You can sneak out there when no ones there and have the entire pool to yourself. They allow doggies and it's crazy affordable. Plus they feed you?! What's not to love? It's our go to place to stay from now on for the fair, Coachella and family. A big thank you to Aaron, the manager who made sure our stay was perfect! Oh and the best free wifi I've ever had at a hotel! Seriously, easy to log in and great speed! Again, another great surprise from this little hotel.

The breakfast was great, tasty with plenty of options to pick of. The have a wall of DVDs movies that you can pick on to watch in the room. It's a short drive to the southern entrance to Joshua tree national park. We highly recommend this fantastic place. We love you Toni G! Waiting for you in Israel.. Or & Noam
