This place is a gem, my husband and I needed a getaway from our jobs and we got a room from the same day booking through online. The best part is its pet friendly so we were able to take our pooch with us. Staff were so nice and accommodating specially Alexandra and Jeff who gave us free room upgrade... More

Such a wonderful place to vacation too over and over again, I really enjoy Joey at the front reception, he's wonderful and so down to earth! I can't understand why such bad reviews are on here, and such lies about the property, Really folks?? They must be people who are really negative and miserable with their lives and so bored... More

Older basic Palm Springs hotel with a great pool and pool area. This was our favorite really great priced hotel until our last visit. The great part is the huge pool and the freedom to bring your own food, pool rafts and beverages poolside. Unfortunately this is also the bad, when fellow travelers are disrespectful and inconsiderate. Last trip we... More

We liked our stay here. Pool was nice and wifi was strong. Great location. The room was a tad outdated but clean and cozy. The staff was friendly when we checked in...zero complaints. I would definitely stay here again but its not always easy to get a room.

1) Too much trash around the pool. At one point one of the staff members came by to visit with some of the guests and instead of cleaning up at the obvious trash everywhere. Cigarette butts (which you are not allowed to smoke); water bottles and beer cans, he just walked by. 2) They allowed people to smoke around the... More

Have previously reviewed this hotel about 7 years ago but the ownership has changed twice since. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. It's got a really nice pool and ample area around the pool to relax. The weekends can be busy and the pool more crowded. The staff are very helpful especially Joey. They have laundry facilities and... More

I stayed with three other friends. The room was pretty big but the bathroom was quite compact. The pool area was adequate but nothing too special for a resort in Palm Springs. The price was great, however Wifi kept cutting in and out - especially in the lobby area.

Conveniently located an hour away from Joshua Tree Park. When we arrived at Caliente Tropics, we were a bit scared, because it was so warm outside (95° F) although it was already past 11pm, and we weren't sure if there would be A/C in the room. It was a great relieve when it actually had it! The pool is open... More
