Staff was friendly, room was clean, & pool was stunning. We loved having drinks in the hot tub & lounging by the pool with the great mountain views, surrounded by palm trees, tiki torches, flowers & statues. There was a delicious Mexican restaurant just down the street. Maid service was excellent & the room was always clean, they even cleaned... More

I went to Palm Springs with my partner for Pride Weekend and had the most amazing time! Everything was first class, beginning with the hotel. The front desk personnel Alicia and Joe we're very professional and courteous. The pool was clean and we were allowed to bring our drinks from the bar to the pool (most hotels don't allows drinks...

We came down to PS for a quick overnight so we didn't spend a lot of time on the property but, wow, is it lovely! The new owners have done a great job renovating the rooms and restoring the original mid-century tiki awesomeness. The lobby is just gorgeous and Jose made check-in fast and easy. Our room was updated, clean,... More

The room was Totally fine. The bathroom was small but well done - great shower. The big thing keeping me from giving the place 5... More

I stayed here for night as my husband and I needed somewhere to stay after exploring Joshua Tree for the day. This hotel is truly a tiki lovers delight. So if you're into tiki it will be easy to look past the renovations needed to the hotel. The rooms are definitely no frills in amenities and yes the carpet in... More

great pool/spa, tiki drinks, older "motel" type rooms but comfy and set up around the pool area. Prices are reasonable with dining in walking distance. The hotel has a 50's tiki Polynesian décor, could use a little work, paint , but not a issue... cool place

Stayed 4 nights in this motel style hotel on a room only basis. Clean room and bathroom although the bathroom was small and would benefit from redecorating, very comfortable bed, very helpful and courteous staff both at reception and in the bar. There was a nice pool area with a reasonable size pool and a jacuzzi and plenty of shade... More

My visit was wonderful! Great front office staff and nicely refurbished rooms. Great price and close to downtown Palm Springs. I was there in July and understandably there were a lot of children in the pool. Would definitely stay here again.

It makes sense that if you like Palm Springs, you have at least a passing interest in mid-century architecture and design and, by extension, tiki culture. If so, the Caliente Tropics is an excellent mid-range accommodation choice. The problem with many of the resurrected mid-century hotels of Palm Springs (particularly those classic rooms-arranged-around-swimming-pool examples), aside from their paper-thin walls, is... More
