Expert Review

This vintage ’60s motorlodge is a tiki-lover’s dream come true and a slice of roadside Americana right in the heart of Palm Springs. Built in 1964, the Caliente Tropics has an illustrious past, hosting guests like Elvis, Nancy Sinatra, and the Rat Pack, not to mention the first Miss Hawaiian Tropic Contest and the third largest pool in Palm Springs. Today all 90 rooms are renovated, each one very clean and decorated in fun, tasteful tiki themes, with luxury mattress sets, high-quality linens, new ceiling fans, desktop data-ports, WiFi, and voicemail. A cocktail lounge and Mexican restaurant are on site.
