Really reasonable hotel. Booked it online on the day we were travelling. We got a huge room with 2 double beds and fridge etc, great price, I think it was about $63. huge pool with lots of sun loungers and a nice lobby. Was delighted with it.

This accommodation is quite away from downtown Palm Springs. Definitely not in walking distance and probably not advisable to walk to downtown. Would not class this as an hotel, outside entrance doors and parking in front of property. Didn't feel comfortable about the security of the room straight on to the parking lot. Very disappointed with our stay here. Booked... More

The room was clean, really big and well appointed. We really enjoyed our one night stay there after a long camping trip in JTree. The people were really nice and the pool and grounds were artfully done.

I have traveled all around the world, stayed in all kind of places, from campgrounds, hostels, motels, hotels to fancy hotels, and this was frankly my worst experience of all. Congrats Caliente Tropics, you have managed to beat the 5$ or less hotels I stayed at in India! The hotel itself is not that bad. Although in my view it's... More

The Caliente Tropics Hotel is more of a motel than a hotel,it is slightly dated against other hotels in Palm Springs but for the price is quite adequate. On arrival the reception area is nothing special but the reception staff are friendly and very efficient. Rooms are either allocated on the ground or first floor with easy parking. The rooms... More

We were welcomed by Leo, who was very friendly and displayed exceptional professional demeanor. We compared several other motel/hotels, then returned to book with Leo. We were assigned to a very nice, clean room with two queen beds at poolside for a very good price of $75 @night. The facilities were all clean and well organized. Very quiet and peaceful... More

This place was probably great 20 years ago? Now there is no music by the pool, the water misters don't work, no service at pool, restaurant has been closed for a long time. We still chilled at pool. At night there are flames, and tikis all over, so it's sort of cool. Rooms are ok, well used. Staff is nice... More

I traveled to the Palm Springs area to attend the BNP Paribas Open. None of the major mid-price hotel chains near the tournament had availability, so the options were pretty limited (ultra-high end or Motel 6/Super 8). Traveling solo and being my first time in the area, I thought a more boutique style hotel might be a better option. First... More

We stayed at the Caliente Tropic for four days recently and I need to warn anyone who is planning to stay there of the things we experienced. When we checked in, it was a saturday, and they charged us, with tax almost $200.00....the room is normally around $60.00 plus tax which was what we paid for the last three nights.... More

Took my daughter on a trip to Palm Springs because it is one of my favorite places! The city's love for the past and ability to restore and maintain history fascinate me. Couldn't have planned it better that a vintage automobile was parked in spot next to ours! We arrived late at night, were welcomed with a smile and a... More
