Motel 6 Indio- Palm Spring Area
Ranked #15 of 16 Hotels in Indio
Reviewed 1 May 2014

5th year of staying here for Country Music Festival and will be the last. I won't dwell on the cigarette burns, worn carpet or cleaning of trash cans at the bottom of stairs with a hose and having to walk through the scummy water. This review is being written because of Bed Bugs in room 272. I was sitting on the bed with my phone laying on the bed next to me. I picked up the phone to use and there was a bug scurrying across the phone face. I took it to the bathroom and flicked it into the sink and took a picture. I then killed it and took a picture by the Motel 6 sign on the door. I showed pictures to counter person upon checking out (Sun.) and was told Manager was not there, but to leave my name and number and he would get back to me.Still had not heard from them on Wed. so I called and spoke with Manager after a call back. I was told if I didn't get bit there would be no compensation. I was hoping to get 1 night compensated. needless to say Motel 6 will not be on my list of places to stay anymore.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 272 it has Bed Bugs

This hotel really has no redeeming features. It is run down, nasty, unpleasant, dirty, noisy (next to a train track) and the staff reflect that image. They charge for Wi-Fi and no coffee in the room. It wasn't even cheap!

It was really a last resort for me (everywhere else in town was either full or ridiculously priced), and that should be the only reason you would ever even consider staying there.

Room Tip: If you do have to stay there, make sure you get a room at the back away from the train tracks and th...

Don't know what it is about Indio. We travel with a pup, so we have to stay in a place that welcomes him. We stay in various places in Arizona and California, usually in national chains known to accept pets. We get outstanding places in Arizona and in some parts of California. But in Indio? Not so much. The price was unusually high here - the desk clerk mentioned some music festival somewhere in the county but the parking lot was almost empty so I suspect it was just an excuse to gouge us a little. Then she told me that there is a surcharge for wifi even tho the signs on the freeway advertised free wifi at Motel 6. Guess she decided we needed a little more gouging. The room is clean - there's a TV and a desk and the place is pretty comfortable. It's a typical motel neighborhood - fairly high traffic and a train track across the street, but not all that noisy so far. But I guess we'll try a different place next time thru Indo.

Room Tip: Should be quieter in the back building.

An old friend used to say, "If you want economy, you have to pay for it." I paid for it in many ways. First the good news... it was cheap and clean. The bad news: paper thin walls. I could hear the drunks til about 3 AM the first night. The second night, I heard the alarm next door ring and ring and ring at 3:30 AM. I heard the TV next door the 3rd night. Thin sheets and small, scratchy towels I could live with. To his credit, the night manager tried to shut the drunks up. Yes, I saved money, but never got a good night's sleep.

Hotel has not been remodeled, no refridge or microwaves in room and the train track is right across the street. They do have security guard there but his car was parked by my room and he kept going to his car and kept setting his alarm which made noise which kept waking me up along with the trains. Not worth it due to lack of sleep and no refridge. Good thing I bring my cooler with me.

This is our first Motel 6 experience. A big tennis tournament was in town so few hotel rooms available. We were surprised-rooms are basic, but ours had two desks and was very clean and looked like it had been recently redone. Since we were traveling with friends we met at the pool each night after dinner. It was basic --plastic tables and chairs, but clean and comfortable. The only downside is the train that goes through about every hour or so. The tracks are across the street from the hotel. It didn't bother us, but if you're noise sensitive, it could. Excellent value. We'll try Motel 6 again if we're just passing through.

No major complaints and nothing to rave about either. It was clean. But I didn't care for the way the door didn't quite shut properly. Price was quite reasonable.
