    Pool area and adjacent grass area were nice.

    Room was not very clean ( for example: the room did not have carpets and my feet got dirty walking around on the painted concrete floor). Walls were VERY THIN! Neighbors on either side and above me kept me awake. The floor boards above me creaked horribly. I heard every footfall of the people (must have been a family with that much noise) above me. Will not stay there again.

About

Overview

The Caliente Tropics Resort is decorated in Polynesian decor with tiki torch, coconut carving, and tiki statues, and coupled with a retro 1960s style. Some travelers love the dated, retro look but others want a revamp. Budget travelers looking for a convenient location, clean room, and a lovely pool will find all they need at Caliente Tropics Resort.

Set on the main drag of Palm Springs, Caliente Tropics Resort is less than 10 minutes from popular downtown restaurants, bars, galleries, and shopping. There are a few restaurants within walking distance but popular regional destinations like Joshua Tree National park and Coachella are a 45-minute drive.

The property features a beautiful outdoor pool, the largest in the area, with spectacular mountain views. The adjacent courtyard has a sunny lawn with barbecue grills and cabanas. Guests will also find access to two outdoor shuffleboard courts and a ping-pong table under a covered pavilion. A fitness center is on-site, as well as Evzin which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in tiki-setting.

The 90 rooms at the budget hotel have been renovated but still feature a standard layout. There are a variety of options for guests to choose from, but all rooms feature convenient necessities such as free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, and min-fridges.

Caliente Tropics is the perfect outpost to explore the booming Palm Springs area. At the hotel, guests can save money while enjoying the area’s attractions, from top-rated golf courses and vibrant festivals to nature tours, museums, and active nightlife.

FAQs when booking at Caliente Tropics Hotel

What are the best rooms for guests to stay in at the Caliente Tropics Hotel and why?

Known for being spacious yet still affordable, the Deluxe King Room is a popular choice that features a refrigerator, flat-screen television, and a large work desk. If you would like to be in a particularly luxurious room, there is the Tiki King Suite, an option that has a separate living room area and an additional bedroom television. Particularly convenient for senior citizens and guests with disabilities, the Tiki Queen Suite is ADA compliant and can sleep up to four people.

What dining options are there to choose from at the Caliente Tropics Hotel?

A restaurant that specializes in Mediterranean food, Evzin has become known among guests at the Caliente Tropics Hotel for using only the freshest of ingredients and creating meals that are both healthy and full of flavor. Created by Rory Snyder, The Reef is a tropical themed bar that is set in the same venue that once hosted the famous Conga Room restaurant. At The Reef, guests are able to enjoy casual appetizers that are perfect for sharing, while also sipping on a handcrafted cocktail.

Why should guests choose to stay in the Caliente Tropics Hotel instead of somewhere else?

Although there are many reasons why guests flock to the Caliente Tropics Hotel, one of the main contributing factors is that the hotel has such as unique and rich history. Created in 1964, it was once a hangout spot for some of the most famous celebrities of that century, such as Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin. After a major renovation in 2000, the hotel transformed into what we see today, an affordable lodging option that still maintains its charm and culture.

What interesting activities and attractions are near the Caliente Tropics Hotel?

For those that are interested in seeing a stand-up comedy show during their stay at the Caliente Tropics Hotel, go to P.S Make Me Laugh, a venue that is less than a 10min walk away. If you enjoy nature and would like to see some of the city’s greenspaces, there is the beautiful Moorten Botanical Garden that can be reached by car in just 4min and that dates all the way back to 1938. Art-enthusiasts will want to make sure that they stop by Warnock Fine Arts, a popular local gallery that is a 7min walk away.

What is the most convenient way to travel from Palm Springs International Airport to the Caliente Tropics Hotel?

If you are arriving at Palm Springs International Airport and would like to travel to the Caliente Tropics Hotel as quickly as possible, it is best to drive between the two locations, as this will only take you 7 to 10min. A standard UberX will cost you $13, while an UberXL will be closer to $18 to $20. As the city has an efficient public transportation system, it is also possible to take the local bus line to make the trip. If you hop on lines 30 and 111, you will reach the hotel in just over 1h.
