great friendly check-in staff! property is little aged but clean and great value for the money. great pool!

The Caliente Tropics was perfect for our short trip. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The place had a funky tiki vibe to it, which our kids enjoyed. The pool was big enough for our kids to be able to play in even when other people were in there as well. The rooms could stand to be updated a bit, but overall, we had no complaints. We’ll definitely be back there on our next trip to Palm Springs.

The tiki vibe is very charming, but the room was quite old and smelled like it. The pool is very cute!

The pool area is amazing. The pool is huge and there is a hot tub and lots of extras like ping pong. The music wafting through the palm trees is lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and have lots of counter tops to put your toiletries on. They also provide plenty of hangers. The alarm clock is a joke but that is true for most hotels these days.

Fantastic pool, hot tub & bar (The Reef)!! Cute Tiki decor in the rooms. Pet friendly

There is a pool and two highly rated restaurants on the premise.

Room clean and comfortable. Would have liked refrigerator to work and a small microwave would help with restaurant leftovers.stayed at another smaller,less expensive place down the road and they had a fridge and microwave. The “resort” charge a joke as there is limited amount of resort type amenities.

Fun cute hotel/motel Bed was too soft but smacking pool and vibe

Polynesian paradise! Friendly staff. Great pool and hot tub!

Caliente Tropics Hotel in Pam Springs stands as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious. There were plenty of hangers in the closet, lots of counter top space, especially near the bathroom. The hotel was really quiet, too. We will definitely be visiting again in the future.

We really like this hotel. Our room was clean and updated. The bed was comfortable. Our only complaint would be the blanket or lack of it. The paper thin, waffle textured sheet doesn’t work at the end of November. We would love to see some comforters instead. We’ll try again next year.

Poor location someone's car was stolen out of the parking lot the pool was closed on Sunday Hotel staff was not very friendly I will not stay there again way overpriced

I would not stay here and will look for other hotels next time I visit Palm Springs.

This was hotel was not luxurious but was perfect for the night. It was close to the conventional center .

It was just okay for the price. The mid-century charm is well preserved but the property could use a rather extensive freshening up.

Stunning mid century modern motel kept in great condition and presented as a boutique hotel. The pool area feels and looks like paradise, with palms, tiki torches and pool toys, making it perfect for an afternoon or evening outside. Diana at the front desk was incredibly friendly, helpful, and accommodating, making my stay extra special.

great staff, clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful view from the pool and of course, The Reef bar with it's awesome bartender.
