I needed to book a room last minute for Coachella because my husband was performing and my 6 year old wanted to see him. I wanted fun and family friendly! Loved the funky, kitschy decor and spacious rooms. Mike at the front desk was very helpful and friendly

I stayed here twice in March for work. First for a Friday night on the weekend of the big tennis tournament. I couldn't believe it when the producer said he got the last room and it was $400. This was always the cheap, sort of cool place to stay in PS with a tiki vibe. I do have to say... More

The greed of the new ownership has turned a great Motel into an overpriced overrated place. The ratings shown are for when you could get a great room for between $60 off season to about $179. I went to book a room on April 12 Sunday and it was $551!!!!! We have always stayed here in the past but I... More

I liked this place, it was really reasonably priced, the room comfortable and well located. I only stopped for the night but was perfectly content. The staff were really helpful and lovely. My only disappointment: no Tiki bar. The Ace hotel is next door but if like me you are allergic to college students: avoid.

HI. this stretch of towns is very different form the rest of the world. driving through at night every thing is dark meaning they only have street lights at the intersections. the rest is lit by businesses or lights on the palm trees. it is nice but finding your way around the towns in this darkness is definitely different. anyway...

This place has great potential! It is very outdated and run down but the property and the pool are amazing. You can grill out on the grass by the crappy cabanas or sit by the pool and soak up the Rays all day. The rooms leave a lot to be desired. Closet doors broken, handles broken off the doors, the...

We checked in on 3/20/15. We were told the hotel was bought by a San Francisco company and closed escrow 2 weeks ago. The room had obvious repairs to the popcorn ceiling, multiple stains on the carpet, a strange smell in the room, hole at the base of the shower head, a wobbly ceiling fan and a general need for...

Our first time to Palm Springs for my husband & I. We spent 4 nights in a king ste & 3 in a Tiki Lanai King. Amazing service by all from beginning to end. Mike was always available to answer questions, offer advice on where to eat, hike, etc... He made us laugh, and he was always busy making things... More

Our second visit to this beautiful Hotel. We spent 3 nights previously and had to come back - mind you, a long way from Sydney, Australia but worth it. Mike, one of the staff always stands out to us. Mike is now like a member of our family and he makes us feel so welcome and he is always available... More

Just finished a wonderful stay at the Caliente Tropics Resort! My husband and I traveled to Palm Springs to get married and selected Caliente Tropics Resort via their website. The pictures do not do it justice. The grounds are beautiful, the staff very attentive and the rooms are spectacular. We selected a king room that had an unbelievable view of... More
