Loved this hotel. Wonderful tropic swimming pool area. Very quiet and clean! Very friendly and helpful staff - Melissa Blaylock in the office went way out of her way to help us make our stay enjoyable! Would love to stay here again!

The room was very nicely decorated with a tropical theme, roomy and clean. Safe, refrigerator and coffee pot were in the room. The staff were consistently nice, welcoming and helpful. The pool area was very tropical and well kept. The view of the mountains from our room was great to see. Ask for a mountain facing room. This was an... More

You don't find quaint hotels like Caliente Tropics anymore. All the grounds are immaculate, the rooms are huge and meticulous, and the staff...well, it's just rare to still find customer service like those at Caliente Tropics--Mike, Tom, and Gareth are professional AND so friendly. As a frequent traveler, that is a rare find, believe me! All 5's

Hotel is great in so many ways in a city filled with retro hotels, it still manages to offer something unique. This hotel has a wonderful tropical motif, filled with character, from the design of the outside and the pool area all the way to the cute and unique designs within the room. There were so many unique and great... More

Large room with tropical decor, good beds, large sink area with granite counter top, frig, desk area. Convenient to all attractions. Large pool, shuffleboard, palapas with lounge chairs. Had a very resort like feel to it at a very friendly budget price. Probably the best buy in Palm Springs. Only thing we didn't like was the shower head.

This hotel has recently been redone. The room were very nice, but this is a dog frendly hotel and our room had stains all over the carpet. It looked like a dog had been left alone and had paniced. The room smelled of dog urine. Had to go get some Fabreeze. Didn't help much. If they are going to have... More

First, perhaps this critique is void given that we paid under $50 a night, but I think the Caliente Tropics can do better. The rooms are recently upgraded, but still retain a smoky smell from their previous incarnation. What bothered the most was an INTENSE cleaning product they used to clean and/or mask the room. It never dissipated after three... More

I've stayed in many hotels over the year, most quite good, but this is the first time I've taken the trouble to write a review. Our experience echoes that of other visitors: we simply had a very good stay at a comfortable and very inexpensive place. Could anything have been better. Oh probably. A kitchenette would have been nice (we... More

For starters, my husband booked the trip online. He accidentally booked it post-Thanksgiving, instead of post-Christmas--which was when we were in Palm Springs! Luckily, after a 10 hour roadtrip, Terry, the front desk person was able to accomodate us AND our little Yorkie. We really enjoyed our stay here and would've enjoyed the swimming pool had the weather been a... More

We've stayed at Caliente Tropics at least twice a year for the last 6 years and have always been pleased with our time there. The rooms and grounds are well kept, and the staff, most notably Tom Law and Mike, have been consistently friendly and accomodating,, they make us feel so welcome! The pool is large with plenty of lounge... More
