Last weekend - the desert beckoned! I stayed at the Caliente Tropics. It was a place where I stayed as a teenager back in the 80's and now, boy has it changed! I stayed there mainfully for budget (it's a great, authentic strip style of hotel which I appreciate but not a costly place - the location is primo) and also because of it's decor (it's very "Tiki" - I find that very cool and unique). Unfortunately, I am a smoker and realized after reading thoroughly about the hotel before my pre-book, that it would be a challenge. No problem - they had spots out front & out back set-up for smokers. So that was no big deal. They're pet friendly (I don't even own a goldfish) and I think that's pretty cool. I have a high dander allergy to most all dogs (believe it or not, no allergies to cats - it's kind of the opposite of the norm) and experienced no problems. The staff was great and I enjoyed a 50-minute (or was it 60?) massage in their on-sitei spa - it was awesome! Go there, dig in their mid-Century aesthetic, read the "special" story on the wall tile in the bathroom and enjoy. Oh yes - the water pressure from the shower blew doors on most hotels I've been to the last few years.
