Caliente Tropics Resort

The tiki torches burn at night, the tall palm trees sway gently in the hot desert air.....we have stayed here before and will likely stay here again on our way through to L.A. The rooms have been recently re-done and the decor is fun. The price of this motel/resort is very reasonable. The swimming pool is spacious which was advantageous during our stay because there appeared to be some non-guests also appreciating the facility: three couples with multiple children, several coolers, pool toys, a table set up for their liquor - LOTS of colorful tattoos on the male and female adults, all smokers - in and out of the pool - yuk! They even had their own shade canopy set up, so they had obviously been there most of the day. Hmmmmm. Besides this spectacle, the Caliente Tropics is an OK place to stay.

Room Tip: Avoid the room all the way in the back - there is a very loud garbage truck that comes early in the...

Forget the typical over-hyped and over-priced Palm Springs hotels that have popped up over the last decade, THIS is the real California desert experience. I've stayed here twice (once with my mom and once with my boyfriend) and both times it was the perfect choice. Spacious rooms, comfy beds, incredible value (MGMT: please, please don't raise your rates but give your fabulous staff a raise), fun pool, great crowd of all types, and cute mid-century kitsch.

At our recent visit to palm springs we stayed at the Caliente Tropics Resort it was a very enjoyable time beautiful pool area and the wonderful tiki torches at night. The room was king suite and extremely clean thanks to Rosario,Connie and the team of housekeepers. The desk staff as fantastic no matter what time of day. It was a very great time and we will continue to stay at the Caliente Tropics when in palm springs, thank you to the staff for a wonderful stay.

Clean room with comfortable bed. Location at the far end of Palm Springs, beyond the downtown area. Only issue was people returning late at night and being noisy, but can't really fault the hotel for that.

Driving to Murietta Calfornia and decided late to stop and sleep. Stephen was ready with all our reservation information and made check in quick and easy! Checking out this morning with Sadie was a breeze too! Wonderful staff. Nice clean rooms for a great price! We didn't have time to use the pool but it looked great as well. We will be coming back for sure!

My husband and I stayed there for our 1st wedding anniversary recently and we had a great time! So relaxing, you can take your own cooler to the pool so no expensive drinks! The beds were cozy and the Hawaiian tiki theme was great. The tiki touches lite up the pool. The staff was really nice and easy to talk to. We will defiantly be going back.

I have stayed at many hotels in the palm springs area but I was on a budget this time. I checked out Caliente Tropics online and it had good reviews and a good location. I called and spoke with Maritza and let me just say, she was awesome. Super friendly, professional and very nice. I appreciated that and will tell all my friends to call her to make a reservation.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in palm springs and not pay a fortune!.
