This place really grew on me over the short time I stayed there while at Coachella. At first it was just a place for me and my new friend to hang out after the Coachella festival, but as the week went on it became like a second home. It is reasonably sized so unpacking my stuff such as my indian...

The Tropics Motor Motel is a quality piece of American Highway History and a classic family run small business. The hotel is clean and nicely cared for. The average hotel price in Palm Springs was $150 the night I was passing through. I paid about $70 at the Tropics. I look for this type of hotel and am very pleased...

We stayed at the Tropics Motor Hotel at the end of June 2016. I fell in love with the old neon sign and vintage look of the place and knew I had to stay there. The days were 110 degrees. The pool was refreshing. The management was nice. The room was adequate for sleep and moving on, but you really...

This Motel is simple, affordable and conveniently situated near the 10 highway. The room I had was clean enough and the bed and bedding were clean and comfortable and the shower worked. The bottom line is, this is a motel and not a proper hotel so for anyone to expect anything more is only going to throw you off. If...

I'm actually at the hotel right now..apparently the Date Festival is this weekend and I could not find a room in Palm Springs where I normally stay, but there was a room here at the Tropics. It's a really cute 50's tiki style hotel with a really nice staff. My only thing is that there is a train that goes...

For the time I've spent at this hotel, I can honestly say it's well maintained and managed, for being such an old hotel people say I find it more vintage kinda nice to see the different signs and info from back in the days learn a lil something while on vacation. There was a flow of constant trains passing it...

We made the mistake of not booking in advance and were sold rooms at $152 single and £200 twin. Yes it was busy and we were tired so we took them. Tired and run down but taps and locks work but not wroth more than $40m max and nowhere near as good as a Motel 6 or Econolodge

I stayed here with my mother and some other relatives. We were travelling with a 91 year old lady so we wanted at least one room that had a sitting area so that we could sit and talk while the elderly lady slept nearby if needed. Unfortunately the "sitting area" turned out to be a kitchen table with three chairs...

I stayed for 4 nights while attending a conference about 15 minutes down the road. Good value, room was clean, friendly service, no frills but did have a microwave and refrigerator. I will have no problem staying again if passing through.
