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 colour scheme and modern furnishings, pillow-top 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. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, entertainer Frank DiSalvo performs Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin songs during dinner. The lobby lounge, a local favourite, offers live entertainment on the weekends during the summer and all week during peak season. 

Play a round of golf at the on-property Indian Wells Golf Course, surrounded by lush palm trees and 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 centre.

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.

The pool area was a good size with a great view of the golf course and mountains.

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.

The breakfast that was included in the resort fee was nice. The pool was great until a group of loud partiers came in the afternoon. The place has potential, but it needs a lot of work and TLC.
Other Comments
The mothball smell in the room was very overpowering and made us not want to spend any time in the room. Also, the carpet was dirty with stains. The whole hotel needs to be updated. It advertises as a 1950's retro hotel, but has 1980's decor. It would be better to restore it to its 1950's style but with a modern touch. We had a small balcony, but it overlooked the 2nd level's bigger balcony and the rooftop filled with air conditioning units. The resort fee is unacceptable since we never once saw a valet to park our car and the "welcome drinks" valued at $24 were only for house wine, well drinks, or Budweiser. For $24, all drinks should have been offered.

Rooms are older, need updating but were pretty clean. The floor show was wild, full house FRI night. Lots of kids as it was the weekend. But good value!
