Why We Love It

  • Opened in 1957 by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz
  • Frank's Place restaurant gives a nod to Frank Sinatra with retro furnishings and inspired entertainment 
  • Indian Wells Golf Resort is on the property for those looking to golf
  • This boutique-style hotel offers a more intimate stay


Founded in 1957 by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the Indian Wells Resort Hotel offers a taste of the grandeur of old Hollywood. The boutique hotel only has 155 rooms, which is intimate compared to some of the other surrounding resorts in the area. 

Rooms here all feature a private balcony or patio and the deluxe view rooms and one-bedroom suites feature spectacular views of the nearby Indian Wells Country Club and Santa Rosa Mountains. They're spacious and comfortable with a neutral color scheme and modern furnishings, pillowtop mattresses and flat-screen TVs.

Frank's Place Restaurant and Lounge features retro flare inspired by Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack era. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring an American and Italian menu. The lobby lounge, a local favorite, offers live entertainment on the weekends during the summer and all week during peak season. 

Play a round of golf at the Indian Wells Golf Course with lush palm trees, streams and waterfalls, located on the property with stunning views of the mountains. Cool off in the outdoor swimming pool or unwind in the hot tub after a day on the golf course. There are also two tennis courts and an on-site fitness center.

Everything closes early in the off season so eat dinner early and plan to go out elsewhere if you are seeking late night entertainment.

The water pressure on the shower was Extremely low and, after a few minutes, stopped coming out all together in the middle of our showering. Dried my face with a towel and ended up having to pick a long piece of hair off my face. Yuck! The walls were paper thin. I could hear the people above me, on the 3rd floor, late at night and early in the morning. Made it difficult to get to sleep and woke us up in the morning. Had a cricket and a pincher bug in the restroom and we were on the 2nd floor.

First room we were given reeked of smoke. When we asked for a new one, the front desk staff was unapologetic and acted annoyed. Our second room hadn't been used in who knows how long. Air conditioning was off so it was pretty musty and warm. The breakfast buffet is not really all it is cracked up to be- an assortment of bread and eggo waffles with hard boiled eggs.

I did have to tell the receptionist she overcharged my invoice. She added a room charge that was larger than what I booked, plus she added a larger amount for taxes. She requested my copy of the invoice sent to me, and she then corrected the bill immediately. Glad I had my copy with me.

This hotel is showing it's age yet it's up to date on fees. Charge a "resort fee" which includes a shuttle to the golf course and one other place, less than 2 miles away. "Deluxe" breakfast is basically cereal. Early check in fee!!! The room is empty and waiting to be used.
