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.

Good size rooms.

1. Not enough sound insulation between walls and ceiling. I could hear people walking above and people talking in the rooms next to me. 2. I would recommend you start using liquid body soap and get rid of the bar soap. The room I was in, did not have enough cold water going to the shower. Plenty of hot not enough cold.

Staff is very friendly and pleasant. Hotel is very dated and air conditioner runs so loud it's difficult to sleep.

The breakfast staff was very pleasant.

The resort fee provided nothing we can’t get at any chain on the interstate. Paid for an upgrade so didn’t have to have a patio on the parking lot. Restaurant and bar mostly closed. We actually went to eat at a nearby hotel for dinner. Realize it’s off season, but really?

Rooms need updating, furniture old, housekeeping/maintenance negative....bathroom black mold on ceiling , noisy toilet(shrilling sound) when flushed, TV disconnects when position changed. Resort fee is a joke as this facility is NOT a resort; at best a three star hotel.

The continental breakfast was good and the lobby was very nice. The outdoor pool and area was large and relaxing. The jacuzzi was very small.
Other Comments
The room was small and should have had only one bed. The air-conditioner was one foot from one bed which makes a very cold bed and the other bed was about one foot from the clothes closet. The outdoor patio barely had room for the chairs and it sits in the parking lot facing a line of cars.
