My 85-year-old dad and I were woken by the smoke detector at 3am. Room was full of smoke. We thought the place was burning down (I was grateful he only stumbled and didn't fall as we hurried out). Staff did not investigate, as there was no fire. They had us go back into the room and pack - in the... More

Haven,t been here in a couple of years but i was very pleasantly surprised by what I found on this trip. New owners have stepped in and they are doing a great job. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the front desk staff were pleasant and very helpful. There is now a bar and restaurant at the... More

Whenever we pass through Palm Springs we always stay here. Affordable, clean, great staff and plenty of parking. This year their new restaurant, the Congo, was open. Also great food at an affordable price. The bed was wonderful.

Just what we needed when my family and I decided to take one night for a relaxation trip from the city. How could we not be happy about all... More

We wanted to get out of town for the weekend and leaving our two dogs wasn't an option. Caliente is very dog friendly. $50 extra for each pup but well worth it. Palm Springs itself is very dog friendly. Be aware thought, there were a lot of motorcycles around at the weekend and one of our pups had the life... More

I was surprisingly impressed with my stay here given how affordable the hotel was in the area. Rooms were clean, front desk staff was great, pool was laid back, and, most surprisingly, the food was really impressive. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for the price.

Awful service, room wasnt clean when we arrived, neither was the bed when we complained to the front desk they really didnt seem to care. Pool was filthy and the drinks and food was outrageously overpriced

Very cool motel! Very clean rooms (even base boards were clean!), comfortable bed, friendly, attentive staff and large clean pool. Well appointed tiki landscaping. A bit old but by no means neglected; obvious well maintained property. Will be back.

Room is spacious. Linens nice. Clean. Best of all, no adult channels!!! Hotel and restaurant staff really friendly. Food tasty, though took a while. Heidi was very sweet and helpful. Front desk clerk super. Quinceañera there, kids running stairs til 10:30, but very nice folks.
