"Indio - the town that wealth forgot." Indio by kcbrit

I was staying in Indio so I could compete in a triathlon. Thehotel was oaky - Best Western Date Palm - but the town was a depressing affair. It lies along highway 111 and at the end of the chain of desert resort towns that are usually considered to be "Palm Springs". It was sad to see the old Shields Date Farm up for sale, probably to make was for yet another suburban sprawl tract of the ilk that is ruining the Palm Springs area. They say that Indio is the city of festivals and I've heard that the Date Festival is pretty cool. Nevertheless, if you just need a cheaper place to crash use the Best Western (clean and friendly). Otherwise spend your time elsewhere.
