      Contemporary decor and very clean room. Bathroom had a large shower with plenty of room. The bed and pillows were super comfortable, had a great couple of nights sleep. The pool and spa facilities are terrific and a wondefrul place to spend the day, or two, relaxing.

      The only negative comment is that it is not walking distance to the city centre.

      The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. This hotel has the typical characteristic of an American road motel with a modern finish and great facilities as swimming pool and Jacuzzi. All the room have independent doors, no corridors, facing directly to opened spaces and parking.

      It was a very nice hotel and at a very good rate, which is pretty hard to find.

      The only thing I wish they had a restaurant and bar open; it would have been great since all you want to do is be by the pool. Also maybe have a portable dvd player in the rooms. Caliente Tropics should update their website and pictures. What they have now does not do it justice. I was a little worried before we arrived and how the establishment would be.

      Rooms have fairly good sound proofing between them - I could hear people talking loudly but it was muted enough to sleep. Clean rooms, big pool and grassy lounge area

      Aged design of room with no natural light in the back of the room. Aged appliances and air conditioners that make random loud noises. A clientele that apparently thinks it is correct to pound on doors or talk loudly in their rooms in the middle of the night.

      The room was outstanding. The bed/sheets/pillows super comfortable and nice quality. I liked how they have been able to maintain the old feeling of hotel with the modern vibe. Also very close to the mountains. We loved it.

      There are not many food options around the hotel and its around 30-35 mins off the freeway. It look much closer in the map.

      Too loud, people outside room running and banging on doors, people arguing outside room (at 2:00 am), no one at front desk answered phone on three seperate occasions, they kept a 100 dollar charge on our card for days for what ? incidentals there are none! We got up and left at 4:30 in the morning, some sorta of cleaning fluid spilled on carpet in room soaked our feet and socks plus it filled room with fumes.

      Clean rooms, newly renovated. Coffee maker and small fridge in room. Small safe in room. Lots of parking space. Short drive from downtown Palm Springs.

      The Deluxe King Room had no internet connection, so had to move to a different room in order to have internet. This meant going to a two Queen size bed room with not much free space in the room. Only showers (no tubs) in the renovated rooms. Nothing the hotel can do about this but, the majority of guests hanging around the pool and spa were either obese and loud or children and loud. Check-in time is 4:00 P.M. Printer wasn't working at check-out so I couldn't get a printed receipt.

      We loved the history of the hotel. Really cool Rat Pack vibe. Hotel staff was extremely nice and accommodating.

      Wish they had central ac/heat. It was loud to run the air and heat took to long to warm up room.

      Everyone was nice and they kept the pool open late hours as long as we werent making outrages noise.

      When I called the front desk at nightAround 10 no one picked up , I kept calling for 5 minutes still no answer, I was assured at check in that I could call front desk at anytime and they would be there but I got the opposite. When I finally got a answer I asked for a towel to my room and the girl said id have to come to the frontdesk to get it, very unprofessional and lazy of her to say that. In the morning I called for towel to the room a lady said it will be right over. She never came. So whoever ladies that work late nights and mornings need better customer service skills. The two guys thatwork late nights were awsome!

      We liked the great hot tub, the nice pool, the mountain view, the super comfortable beds, the privacy of the hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.

      The restaurant was not open for business.
