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.

Have stayed here several times and for the price have never been disappointed. Rooms are clean, some are updated with new showers. The pool and green space with bbq grills is a nice place to try and escape the summer heat. Convenient location to downtown restaurant and entertainment. Definitely recommend.

We stayed two nights here with my family, and our dog. Being our first trip to Palm Springs, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. The location was outstanding, nestled in between some of the higher end hotels in the older part of town. The rooms were decent, with nice sheets and comfy beds. The... More

A little bit musty and in need of an update. But that's probably why it's such a very good budget option. The rooms were a reasonable size. They were clean and air-conditioned. The bed linens and towels were laundered and clean. Wi-Fi was free. You could make a couple of cups of coffee in the room. The staff were busy,... More

Beware of extra charges!!! My daughter and I planned a little trip to Palm Springs. She had stayed at the Caliente Tropics before and recommended it as being a good value. I would have agreed EXCEPT for the cost of two towels being $40!!! When we arrived, i was not given towels. The next day I asked for two and... More

Stayed here for four nights when the Ace was booked out and was pretty happy with it as an inexpensive backup option. Room was a good size, pretty quiet and clean (though dated and a bit faded). It's not the classiest place in town, but it did the job. The pool was nice (and WAY less busy than some others,... More

It's great to see a survivor from the 1960s that has been converted into another look-alike corporate chain eyesore. The room was clean and had nice bedding. For me, the pool is the best feature. Check it out at night with the torches ablaze. The front desk person was friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely go back.
