Hotel Description
A fun-in-the-sun atmosphere a heated pool and hot tub and retro appeal make the value-priced Caliente Tropics Hotel a standout among our guests. Bonus: Elvis slept here. Originally built in 1964 the 90-room Caliente Tropics Hotel is steeped in Polynesian charm updated for the 21st century: In-room Wi-Fi and cushy bedding with 500-thread-count sheets. Freebies include parking and newspapers. Outside dig the ring-a-ding pool and soak in the 12-person hot tub. At night tiki torches evoke the days of the Rat Pack (who also swung here baby). There's plenty to walk to near the property. Check out the cacti at Moorten Botanical Garden and enjoy nearby dining options. If you want to stick with the Rat Pack vibe take a two-block hike to Davey's Hideaway or drive a mile to old-school celeb dining haunt Melvyn's. Palm Springs International Airport is less than four miles away.

Can be a destination in...

Liked: We loved the staff! Walking into Caliente Tropics is like returning to visit favorite friends or family, plus they make every effort to give you a room that is just right for you. The grounds and views are fantastic; pool and jacuzzi plus The Reef Tiki Bar such a plus. We enjoyed the Hawaiian Music played at the grassy area and by the pool.
Disliked: It's hard for short people to access air conditioner controls (they are up high near the ceiling), but when I've had trouble a phone call brings immediate assistance with a smile.

Liked: Loved the vibe! The hotel is retro yet modern, the pool area is beautiful, and The Reef serves delicious food and cocktails. Would definitely stay here again.

Liked: Ciriena was an absolute delight checking us in. She set the tone for the entire trip with her friendly, outgoing and super helpful attitude. The room was incredibly clean, cute and comfy. The beds were so soft and we both had an amazing sleep. The grounds were adorable - tikis everyplace and great Polynesia themed music. We had dinner and drinks at the reef - everything was so good! The loco moco was delicious. Would absolutely stay here again. Actually, we did, decided to come back a second night on the way home!
Disliked: $12 for a drink is a little steep. Maybe a weekend happy hour would be appreciated.

Excellent place for the dollars...

Liked: Great budget stay close to all the amenities that Palm Springs has to offer. Loved the restaurants that are close by. Very friendly staff who were extremely helpful. Also great that the pool was open so late!
Disliked: The gym could do with a slight upgrade of their equipment.
