My friend and I stayed at this motel for 3 nights while attending the Desert Trip music festival in nearby Indio. The motel was clean and the location right off the 10 freeway was very convenient. It was about 9 miles to the venue, and the drive was easy. It suited our needs and the price was right. We used... More

We stopped here after being on the road a while. Although not what we normally like, it was clean. The towels were so thin, wish there was a Walmart would have bought a new towel and washcloth, (they only gave you 1 washcloth, I guess we were suppose to share. Only one nightstand even though we had a queen. Bathroom... More

We had stayed here before on our way to Arizona. When we checked in our room we noticed that it was updated with a flat screen TV, beds and room decor. After our previous stay we had written a review about how outdated the room was. Thank you Motel 6 for reading reviews from customers. We will definitely stay again.

Stayed in 109 on Sun & Mon because it was close to my cousin in Palm Desert. Only problem, the door wouldn't open. You had to put the key card in, turn the handle then give it a kick. The room was fine- good beds & pillows, air & TV worked, soap & towels. Went swimming in the pool &... More

Check-in was easy, we did have some issues with our room key the second night, but the front desk staff were very helpful and fixed the issue. Wi-Fi is provided for a fee, but it is... More
