This hostel is located near the main street. It's not noisy. You can enjoy the jaccuzi and the huge swimming-pool even during winter. Awesome! The rooms are comfortable and beautiful (nice colors!) A special thanks to Maritza and Connie for their warm welcome during our stay; we really appreciated.

The property is more motel and less resort but that is what we needed. It was quiet, clean and the rooms were spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We needed access to a computer and printer and the people on the front desk were always very helpful. We booked via phone and Maritza was very accommodating to our...

This place was so cool and very affordable. Decorated in a retro feel but spotlessly clean and staff very friendly. Lovely pool and gardens. Same sort of price as a Motel 6 place but worlds apart in feel and vibe. Highly recommended and would stay there again. Maritza was so helpful and friendly.

I spent a weekend here with a group of friends. Wow, what a great experience. Sadie and Maritza were fabulous meeting all of our needs. There is no restaurant or bar, but you can bring your own food and drinks to the pool area. The large grass area with BBQ's is perfect to make your own dinner and to meet...

If you go with the right expectations, then this is a decent place. The room was clean, but dated. Old tube TV's and linens, thin towels, thin walls, etc. The two worst parts of the place are that you have to check out pool towels from the front desk. In a pool-centered part of the world as Palm Springs, why...

Nice room although seemed to be sloping - it was the end room of the building. Was worried it might drop off. Room was clean and wel maintained with 2 queen beds for the4 family members in our party. Location on the main road but not that close to facilities.

This isn't a review of a one-time hit or miss kind of stay. I've been working on a project here in Palm Springs off and on for the last four months and just keep coming back to this great hotel. Talk about consistency...the service is outstanding regardless of the hour I check in. Steve at the front desk always hooks...

We booked the Caliente Tropics Resort the night before we arrived, after reading the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. We needed somewhere to stay after a change in travel plans, and were not disappointed with Caliente at all. The staff on check-in (Maritza and Trey) were friendly and accommodating. Things were a little slow as Trey was training, but this was...

Don't waste your time wondering if you are going to get more bang for your buck somewhere else. I have stayed at them all; from Motel 6 to the Ace next door, those "clothing optional resorts' or the Westin. Caliente Tropics has all the creature comforts and surprising upgrades you hope for but seldom get at other budget/mid-priced motor inns....
