For $50 I don't think you can get a better night's stay. Swift and friendly checkin and able to recommend local places to eat. Room is very big and spacious, clean and with all the facilities (fridge, hair-dryer, coffee maker etc). Even had a great view from the shower! The pool area is great, big pool with lots of loungers... More

Clean comfartable and decent size rooms. An outdoor heated pool and hottub is available with lying chairs. A fridge and coffee making facilities are available. The bathroom has a very large mirror, a bath + douche but the bath is too short to use it as bath. The matrass is a bit to soft but there are lots of pillows.... More

We stayed in a deluxe King room and enjoyed the spacious room, comfortable bed, great shower, and separate area with a sink/vanity. The overhead fan was a nice touch, and the updates appreciated. The older TV did not bother us one bit, but some might miss an HD TV. Staff were friendly and efficient and the pool looked nice (didn't... More

The pool area is why we're already planning a return trip. It's "Y" shaped pool is great for swimming laps or just cooling-off and the numerous lounges and jacuzzi make it comfortable, casual, and relaxing. Adjacent to the pool is a large, tree-lined grassy area that's cool on the feet with two lines of cabanas for guest usage. The rooms... More

I loved the whole tiki vibe. Looks like it had a remodel in the last few years. Nice set up at the pool with cool cabanas. Love canyon setting and retro details. The price was right, but some cash needs to go back into operations. Holes in pillowcases. Dust piled on lampshades, headboards and picture frames. Food and old tea... More

We came to Caliente because our friends recommended it to us. When me and my boyfriend walked into the lobby we were welcomed by the awesome tiki theme and the Majestic Paola! She helped us pick a couple bars and places to dine out and sent us to a comedy night show at a near by area! We are very... More

Due to a long drive from LV to LA, we stayed for 1 night at this place. It was really hot that day, 106F/41C. Airco worked great, pool was nice (maybe cool it? that an idea?) After a goodnight sleep we headed to LA. The price was totally right, would book again.
