Hotel California

The Other Hotel California

Hotel California in the desert

This Hotel California is located in the desert hills of Indio California.

Can’t find the current information on it now.

When we rode there in 2018 were told the rumor that the guy killed his wife and was holding up in the hills at this location.

Old photos from 1980 show that there was a palapa out front. I have a photo from 2018 and the front wall was not complete. Now here in 2020 the door is missing but the front wall is complete.

Great care has gone into preserving the house. If you head this way please tread lightly to preserve history.

This model was made with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. All flights were manual. Combined orbits and grid. Process with several software solutions, DroneDeploy, Pix4D and Capture Reality. I chose to use the Pix4D model. Inside the house was filmed with the Insta360 one x camera.

Check out the 3D model on Sketchfab
