The pool was open until midnight.
The water in the pool was 90 degrees. The blinds were warped and you could see everything in our room from the parking lot. We had to use sheets to cove the blinds.
Cost and location
My wife and I stayed here for one night. We chose it for the cost and location. When we arrived we were unpleasantly surprised- there was that old motel smell, and overall, it was underwhelming and disappointing. The worst part was the next morning when I stepped in a puddle of water in the hotel room. We searched for the source, and after my wife heard a trickling sound coming from the floor, she saw that the water was seeping from under the tiling. We had to use all the towels to absorb the water as we got ready to go.
Classic Motel Update With History
Great hottub and pool area with 2 restaurants on the premises, the Reef historic tiki bar and greek place. Laid back nostalgic vibe. Rooms nice enough and large...a bit outdated but more than functional.
Bed could have been more comfortable...a little too soft. Excellent cleaning staff...very clean and well maintained property.
Great value for money
Spacious and comfortable rooms, very clean. Bar and restaurant looked great but we did not have time to use them. Beautiful pool
Loved the pool, and its open until midnight

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.
