Very nice and clean motel! They allowed our pets to stay, however, the rooms, although pet friendly, were very clean and well kept! Quite and quaint, it sits right at the end of town! AND, unlike a lot of out of the way towns, they do no price gouge you here! The rate was very reasonable, given the remoteness of... More

Stayed at the Rainbow Motel during the SNORE Offroad race. The rainbow is associated with the convenience store next door. I had a large king room, it was big and quiet, has a wall mounted ac unit which worked great but are a bit loud. Checkin was quick, had a great time Caliente is in a beautiful place. Big open...

This is a nice motel in the quaint little town of Caliente. The room was basic but clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel registration was found at the gas station next door. However, the staff, even though busy were some of the friendliest staff we have ever come across. Try to get the room with the Jacuzzi tub.... More

The room was clean and comfortable. Not luxurious, but it was all I needed for this trip and having a clean/safe/comfortable room is what matters most to me.The only drawback was there was no microwave, but I was told when I checked in that I could always run over to the gas station/quicky mart (right next door, they own that...

We stayed here for a family reunion. We've stayed here before and like it. There's not much competition in this small town. I'm giving it four stars in relation to what else is available nearby. The motel is clean and in good repair. The staff is friendly and accommodating. It was nice to be close to Kershaw Ryan State Park... More

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 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
