I've stayed at this motel several times, but only when the rates were reasonable. If you can get a room for under $100, that's a decent price for being so close to downtown Palm Springs during the peak winter/spring season. More than that, and it's not worth it. What I like about this motel: * Easy parking and close to...

The towels where ratty and the room was certianly dated. Sunday the place emptied out and it became a nice place. Who cares if the towels are a...

A great choice, would recommend...

I used to live in Palm Springs and I knew where the Caliente Tropics Resort was but never referred friends to it, my mistake. Upon visiting Palm Springs, I thought why not give it a try. What a wonderful experience. Upon checking in I received a great upgrade. The room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom and shower were...

We booked this motel (it is a motel, not a resort) after reading the tripadvisor reviews. It was cheaper than most other motels, but beware the resort fee and the $ charge for a third person in a double queen room, plus the taxes, as it all adds up. Also, ask for a 2nd storey room if you don't want...

During the week days of our stay (Wednesday and Thursday) this place was cute, quaint, comfortable and quiet. UNTIL the party goers came to the hotel Friday night... Normally that would be great - people NEED to party more but outside of the hote room especially thin walled hotel rooms! We had planned to go to Joshua Tree the next...
