I visit Caliente, NV every year to ride in the Park to Park Pedal bicycle ride. I stayed at the Rainbow Canyon Motel for the first time last year. It was a fairly large room... enough for two people and two bicycles, along with our carry-on bags fit nicely. It's also clean, which is important to me. I'm fairly picky... More

Comfortable beds and Clean room with small fridge and 32 inch tv. 2 queen size beds and thick towels. They no longer have microwaves since they don't allow cooking in the rooms. Parking lot has gravel rocks, and office is inside the gas station. Even though the people are friendly and courteous, it took a while to run credit card... More

Rooms were clean and equivalent to what we paid. You check in at gas station. Nothing special except a good bed for someone passing through town. Didn't compare price but noticed other hotels in town.

We stayed at the Rainbow Canyon Motel in Caliente NV for three nights. The motel is relatively new. We found the room to be very clean, plenty of large towels, and the beds were comfortable. The accommodations were basic. The room includes a refrigerator, large TV, and coffee maker. The folks were friendly and helpful. Check-in is across a large... More

We did not know what to expect in Caliente. This was the first day of our vacation and we road approx. 500 miles on our motorcycles. If I remember correctly, there are 3 hotels. Based on Trip Advisor, I chose Rainbow Canyon. It is a small hotel, you register at the gas station. The employees there were very helpful and... More

Stayed here on the basis of other reviews; definitely make a wise choice. Very clean and comfortable. Very good heater--it was chilly with rain that night. (There was sleet and slush the next day!) Parked right in front of the room, which is the best. The room rate was very reasonable. Definitely would stay here again. Beds extremely comfortable. Very... More

Nice, very basic motel. No frills. The good part is that it was clean and seemed like a new motel.

In order to check in, you go to the gas station/convenience store next to the motel. Nice size TVs and quiet rooms. Larger bathroom than the Shady Motel. Internet quality was good. If you ask, you can get free ice and free coffee from the convenience store at the gas station. There was also a small fridge and microwave in... More

If you feel like going to the middle of nowhere, you should drive through Lincoln County in Nevada and visit Caliente, which is the biggest little "hood" there, with apprx. 1200 ppl. This motel is one of the 2 (or 3) places you can stay at, and it is very good. It is cheap, the rooms are clean and nice,... More
