Juan Anaya at check-in provided great service. Hotel itself provided very nice accommodations and my room was clean. Had very nice scenic view. Overall had no complaints while staying here on a business trip.

I called several times after trying to talk with management about our disappointing time at check out, when we were told that the manager would call us back. I finally gave up. I did not realize that you are really staying at a motel 6 level lodging. The black out blinds did not work, and because we already moved once...

We stayed in February 2017 for a couple nights wanted to try this place out for a while - but mostly because of the Tiki Bar / Reef Room which had the ambience of an old hawaiian bar. and to see our fave barman Randy. We arrived to find (once again) the bar and restaurant had closed !! very disappointed.....

Staff was friendly and helpful loved the Tiki vibe and overall feel of the property. The one disappointment was the restaurant and bar were not open. I expected to be able to sip a cocktail at the bar by the pool but the renovation was not complete.

Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced. Reading other reviews - what looked liked carpet stains was part of the pattern. Nice bathroom and shower, bed was one of the most comfortable ever, internet was slow, side of desk was worn, I think someone hit it with a suitcase or something, rest of room was in very fine shape. Would stay there again.

This an older classic hotel/motel. Very clean with all amenities. Seems to be in process of some upgrading in rooms.. WiFi in room free. Walking distance to Elmer's Restaurant. ..great food and discount for breakfast if you stay here. We were upgraded to suite since our room wasn't ready when we arrived early. Korina and other staff were very friendly....

We needed a place for just one night so I contacted Hotels.com and requested something under $100/night close to downtown. They recommended Caliente Tropics Resort. This motel is quite old but very nicely decorated. The lobby and outside decor is Tiki. They have birds in the lobby. The restaurant/bar is separate from the hotel in owners but it's right off...

We were looking forward to staying a couple of nights at the Caliente as we love everything tiki. Unfortunately beyond the entrance there isn't much tiki and the restaurant and bar were closed for remodelling which would have been nice to know in advance. Rooms were adequately comfortable but carpet stained and furnishings chipped. Room overlooked the car park (...

Go for the pool. It's huge, heated, and you have an amazing view of the mountains. It's what brought me back after staying here once about 15 years ago. The bar is good, too. The room was gross (filthy carpeting and a dingy, tattered stuffed chair) and in need of updating (same bedding, fixtures, etc. from 15 years ago). I'm...
