Recent guest reviews

1. Door can not lock , we found out when we ready to leave to business appoinment after close the door. We can just open the door with out key. Stuff came to lock the door manual. 2. No Microwave : Stuff told me I can walk to liquor store to use microwave at liquor store. 3. Laundry basket drop off in front off our room 6am That woke me up. Around 10:30am I move a big basket cart out to clear space for loading our laugage. Stuff move basket back even have over 5 emtype parking space in next space ( 5 ft away) This is our 5th and last time to stay at Caliente Tropical.

My husband and I had a very nice time here. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the pool! We will definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to Palm Springs.

We have been going to Caliente for about 15 years. It's home away from home for us in Palm Springs. We really enjoy the location and view of the mountain from the tropical/tiki-themed pool. We had a one bedroom king suite that was just fine for us. Our A/C unit in the bedroom was pretty loud but overall we are happy with our stay.

Fun little hotel at the end of the strip. Pool is nice, rooms are fine, cool little bar at the pool serving tiki themed drinks. Excellent value for the $$$

My girlfriend and I loved the whole oldschool tiki vibe. Rooms are a little outdated but overall it was clean and perfect for our short stay. Bar and Pool were the best part.

Loved our stay here. The new Bar by the pool is Awesome! Very yummy tiki drinks! Very friendly staff. I loved that the pool stays open till Midnight because it's too hot to swimm in the day time. It is an older hotel but they have comfy beds with a nice tv and cable!! Can't wait to go back in the fall.

This was an easy way to enjoy Palm Springs! Drive up to room is retro but also super easy! Rooms are OK--but the pool scene was really fun and casual--drink service, food, jacuzzi and even got a massage. All is all, felt like a great value and the Hawaiian vibe was fun and relaxing.

Air conditioner was loud, was not able to turn the ceiling fan on it was about to fall. Blinds did not work.

Nice music on Saturday night. I enjoyed the pool and the jacuzzi. The hotel is close to downtown Palm Springs too.

Comfy beds, beautiful setting an views of the mountains. Super friendly and helpful staff. Clean room.

Overall I liked this hotel however the cleanliness of the room is what got me. The towels and some of the linens had some suspicious stains on them.

Perfect location. Very nice staff. Super clean room. Very quiet and confortable bed. Great bar and heated pool. Pool open till midnight.

Nice clean hotel with big pool and grass area. Room decor could use update but ok for the price.

Great hotel and cool staff. I love the pool with music playing as you get checked into your room, good vacation vibe.

Always friendly staff, neat, clean & good place to just get away from it all, I love that they are pet friendly to.

This was a great getaway Hotel - So, I would highly recommend it - it is a great value. The rooms were large and comfortable - I love the Polynesian Theme - the pool area was clean and enjoyable to hang out at - and the jacuzzi was open late - closing early is a huge pet peeve of mine at other hotels. Hot tub is large also.

Love everything about the hotel. Great staff, great service, clean rooms and great prices. 100% recommend

Good place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, and well taken care of. The only drawback, the wifi was a little slow.

Was nice location, easy to use Buzz Bus. Looking forward to food and bar being available - working on getting soon.

Well for one Joey, the front desk clerk, is always awesome when I stay there. He always goes the extra mile to ensure that my stay is as pleasant as possible. The rooms are spacious however it would be nice if a microwave was in the room like other similar hotels offer.
