Love the theme and the pool is heated. Most definitely would have been a hot spot back in the day. Cleaning staff was great. The bed was probably a surplus purchase from the Spanish Inquisition...

Friendly front desk and nice clean rooms. Pool area has a tropical feel and Jacuzzi jets are strong just the way I like it. Will definitely stay again.

This is actually a pretty nice place. A 60's Motor Motel for sure. A large swimming pool(One of Palm Springs largest outdoor motel pool) Jacuzzi and Shuffle Board. They could have more, but this is all I saw. There are two restaurants on the property. A Greek restaurant up front(Street side)and a tropical island themed Bar and Grill called "The Reef". We ate at both. The food at the Greek place was delicious! An excellent place for a quick bite or a romantic dinner for two. The Reef only serves sandwiches burgers and fries. The menu is limited mainly to lunch items. Their drink menu is pretty big. With lots of exotics to choose from. They also have live music but shut down early. The noise from the party really was never an issue. Our room was decent. Not far from the ice machine. Bed was comfortable. Came with four pillows. Free Wi-Fi. Shower had great water pressure. Shower stall was large and made of glass. Marble walls. There was a small window you can stick your head out. But it doesn't afford much in the way of ventilation. TV was large and had a decent picture. It was very quiet during our two night stay. The place is pretty peaceful. Staff was friendly and very helpful! It's location is not really that bad. I will come back here again. And I definitely would recommend staying here.

The last three years I've attended the El Gato Classic in Palm Springs and stayed at the Hard Rock. This year we decided to try something different and picked Caliente Tropics. Best decision ever...I loved the hotel. The beds comfortable and the pillows were down. Large pool and jacuzzi. Two restaurants to choose from. We will definitely be back

Great Stay & Wonderful Reception My stay at Caliente Tropics exceeded my expectations.The bar / restaurant area was great and I enjoyed the easy access to downtown and other areas of interest around Palm Springs. What truly made my stay exceptional though was my first interaction with one of the hotel staff, Alicia, at check-in. She helped locate a cell phone I left in a taxi on arrival to the hotel, assured me everything would work out and promptly notified me once the phone was returned. I had a huge room, and really enjoyed the pool and hot tub area.

Cool spot to chill and have a few drinks. Stayed here for my Birthday and really enjoyed my stay.

Nice atmosphere We enjoyed the jacuzzi and pool. Great location and the staff sure aimed to please. Very friendly. I was not feeling well so they let us change from king size bed to two queen size beds so my daughter wouldn’t catch my cold. Great location and we liked the tiki theme

Just okay for a short stay We stayed one night here in Jan 2018. We got a very completive rate for the night we were there. The room is old and a little beat up and in need of a good scrub or a total renovation. The bed was not overly comfortable. The size is decent. The shower was good. It is adequate for a short stay but anything more than that I would have moved to a different hotel.

Old school look and feel with eclectic design features. Staff are friendly but not as aware of the hotel as you would like. They said there were no drinks available on the property when there were at least two vending machines at different stairwells on the property. Computer system for checking in had some issues but the staff were all kind and tried to be helpful.

It Keeps Getting Better Here... I think I've stayed at Caliente Tropics around a dozen times over the past six or so years, and I've seen it undergo quite a few transformations during that period. There's great (and greatly weird) history here, including Tiki culture lore and Rat Pack presence (Frank Sinatra even had a secret wine cellar here when it was called The Tropics). The large pool has been featured in a few films. The location, tucked away in south Palm Springs off E. Palm Canyon Drive, is fantastic and peaceful and quiet. You get some great views of the mountains here. The rooms are large and spacious, and the beds and pillows are incredibly comfortable. It's also a pet-friendly hotel, and room rates are reasonable (though they've certainly spiked in the time I've been coming here; that's due mostly to Palm Springs' resurgence in tourism in recent years). I would recommend dealing directly with Ressa up front if you can. She's sweet, professional, attentive, talented, and hard-working. The whole staff is great, really, but she's my personal favorite. Oh, and definitely check out The Reef. Tiki aficionado Rory O'Connor took over the bar area here recently, and did a wonderful job turning it into a true Tiki revitalization hot spot. The food here is also very good, and you can bring food and drinks from The Reef back to your roof (you cannot charge it to your room, however, as they are separate business entities). They also sell some fantastic hand-carved Tiki drink glasses here, and their drinks are fairly priced and fairly stiff. Great times await you here. Many families seem to enjoy staying here, and I've always enjoyed it as a solo traveler. It's my go-to crash spot and hideaway in the Palm Springs oasis hideaway. That may never change.
