I arrived just before dark on a weekday to check in. The place seemed to be deserted. The lobby was dark and no one was around. There was a note to call on a house phone on the desk for assistance. I tried that several times but no answer. There was also a number for an outside l

We loved our stay at Palms at Indian Head. The check-in and checkout were a breeze even with no one at reception, our key and helpful instructions were waiting, and checkout was just a matter of dropping off the key at the front desk. If only all hotels were this easy! The arrang

Decided to book a room here based on the positive reviews. I honestly have no idea how anyone could give the hotel a good review in it's current condition. Maybe we happened to get the dingiest room in the whole place and all the other ones actually looked like the remodeled one

Response from PalmsIndianHead, Guest Relations Manager at Palms at Indian Head
Responded 24 Sep 2018
We are so very sorry to hear your experience was not up to what we strive to provide, I noticed you talked about our remodeled rooms however it seems based on the photos you chose one of our Deluxe King rooms. We are in the process of updating the decor in all of our rooms however it is a lengthy process, We take great care and pride in making sure our guests have a wonderful relaxing experience. So please do give us another chance in the future to make it right! Our Mid Century Modern Classic King rooms are remodeled from the decor, the fixtures, tiles, Everything! Next time let us go through the process of the reservation with you so that you can decide whether to pay for an upgraded room, or not. Best, The Palms At Indian Head

I'd give a 3.5/5 rating if I could as this place certainly wasn't average but not quite very good.

Like most other reviews on here, no staff were present on our arrival. Whilst this wasn't an issue as everything had been left on the reception desk for us, it was very very weird!

hello, I'm looking to book a room at this place but in looking at the amenities, the information provided is limited. Is W-Fi service available at this hotel?
Yes it was strong enough for me to upload an HD video! It's free too.

What time would hiking be if staying the first week of August? due to heat; and are rooms air conditioned throughout facilities?
August can be hot, so hike early. Try to finish by 10am, then take a dip in our Olympic sized pool at the hotel. All rooms are air conditioned.

"Ask if the room has tile and has been recently remodeled. Otherwise, you may be disapointed!"
"top floor rooms have the best views"
"Do not get room #9 as it's too far from hot water source, apparently."
"#5, the corner room upstairs, with a king bed."
"The Casitas are the best lodging options at the facility."
