We stayed in Caliente Tropics over Mother's Day and my family enjoyed it. The suite was spacious and modern but most of all the Front Desk personnel - Maida and Chaz were awesome. They were always happy to help and very responsive to our needs. Will stay again.

Went to Tiki Caliente again and this time we got to Celebrate the Tropics 50th Anniversary! We had a wonderful time on their grounds. Great Pool and Bar and such a wonderful staff. The rooms are so nice too. And they unveiled the completed signs for each room area. Just beautiful! This really is such a nice gem of a... More

Our bed linen was stained with blood and there was no hot water. Hotel manager did nothing and has not even bothered to contact us. Have sent several emails to the hotel and there is no response at all. Avoid this place.

My mother and I recently stayed here and words cannot describe how nice it was. Joey, who works the front office, is the best! He is very knowledgeable and he has a great since of humor too. Our room was clean and comfortable. If you just want somewhere clean and reasonably priced with a great staff, I recommend you stay... More

Mike and Joey in the front office are very helpful. They eagerly give advice for places to eat, directions on how to get there, and sights to see. We had a room on the 2nd floor and they put us facing the mountains. The view was really nice. The room was a bit disappointing, though. The carpets were dirty, and... More

It's not the worse nor the best but Joey the front desk clerk made it good. The hotel is all exterior rooms which is typical for Palm Springs. The rooms are large and fairly clean. The room had a slight musty smell but that was easy to take care of since the bath room had a window you could open.... More

We will always come back. The place is like a fine wine, gets better with age. Joey was so helpful, such a good person, very knowledgeable and professional, He deserves a promotion. Our Family will be back again and again. We look forward to the reopening of the restaurant and bar.

We were assigned a room but weren't happy with the view. The super friendly staff accommodated us. We were told that the hotel was recently purchased and that the bar and restaurant are due to reopen. Can't wait. What a mid-century dream. The rooms were good, not amazing. The price is unbeatable. The location is terrific. Free shuttle to downtown.... More

The location was convenient and the room was clean but rundown. Wallpaper peeling, carpet very worn, decor was outdated, and the ceiling fan was hanging askew. The staff was very helpful but spend a few dollars more and stay elsewhere.

Spacious and clean rooms with comfortable beds. Friendly staff and beautiful pool area. Loved the tiki decor and torches by the pool at night. Ample free parking. They are working to get the restaurant and bar opened by this summer. I saw lots of families, young people and international travelers.
