Incredibly rude and incompetent staff. It can be almost impossible to get anyone to pick up at the front desk; for an entire evening, and even though there was staff on duty, the switchboard was actually forwarding all calls to a sister property in Scottsdale Arizona! (Where the staff were much more professional and polite, so at least there's that).... More

The title of my review seems to be negative, but the whole experience we had here was positive with one exception. We loved the feel of the motel-felt that one of the Brat Pack might show up at any time. We were upgraded to a suite so we had a nice sitting area and a large bedroom. It was clean... More

This hotel certainly gets a mixture of reviews, but as far as we were concerned it was great. Very nice rooms, beautiful pool & grounds. Also, very handy to Downtown Palm Springs and nice restaurants. We did have a problem with our hot water in the bathroom the very first morning of our 3 day stay. L had a decent... More

First of all, please get it out of your head that this is a resort. There is a nice pool. But the steakhouse/restaurant on the property is closed. This is a motel, with doors on the outside. It is clean. It is old. It is very conveniently located. It is low priced. It is well maintained. The outside of the... More

Very nice warm pool and spa. Prices are reasonable for a junior suite. Rooms were an A-OK size. Not particularly noisy when we went this weekend. However, EVERYTHING needs to be tightened up: The front door knob to our room was loose, so you have to fiddle with it to open the door. The door the covered the mini-fridge literally... More

Stayed for 3 nights to visit a relative so I got a good chance to see Palm Springs. On the plus side, the hotel is well located (if you have a car), the room was fairly clear and secure, the amenities are very nice and the bed was very comfortable. We had a suite and having the extra room and... More

Old and dated. Old TV's. Water temperature always a problem. No breakfast facilites. No close restaurants in convienent walking distance. No microwave in room. Not impressed! Only plus is that it it close to the downtown area, but there are other hotels in the area to choose from.

Fun girls trip of shopping and dining. Manager let us check in before noon! TVs outdated, but cute place to stay and within walking distance to everything. Stayed in October. Shopped until we dropped. Highly recommend - good bargain for the money.

I love this place! Service has been wonderful and on point. Rooms are spotless and spacious and cleaned by two awesome chambermaids. The beds are super comfortable which is always key in my book ... (ok the tv's are a little outdated) . The Caliente offers a small gym that's well rounded to work out all your muscle groups and... More

The place is cute, comfortable beds, nice showers but terribly mismanaged and sad. They were drilling into the driveway on New Years Eve. The hot tub has been cordoned with construction zone tape for the past 3 days. Each day, they leave our room with 1 towel and we have to go ask for a second towel (there's 2 of... More
