    Are you a procrastinator like me and you're looking for a place to stay during coachella week and still on a budget?

    Then this is the place to be! The room is surprisingly spacey and the sink is outside of the bathroom (thank god). It's about a 30 minute drive to coachella and few miles away from downtown palms spring.

    I can't complain about the hotel. The guy who got us the key was very courteous and did his best to be on top of things while dealing with a lot of people late at night. The lobby has a lot of space to sit and eat lunch.

    Bonus point for having a tiki theme: the tiki tissue box cracked me up cuz the tissue came out of the tiki head's nose.

    Stayed here for Coachella Week, because it's either Coachella Music Festival or a Palm Springs visit when you're all the way out here. Most of the hotels in this area are actually motels with most of the rooms facing out to the parking lot. What brings us here most of all is competitive pricing and spacious rooms. My large group elected for a double queen suite which was probably the largest room they had here. with the additions of a living room couch setup and extra closets.

    -=-Venue-=- The amenities were actually not too bad which included a "tropical style" pool with adjacent outdoor lounging area. There were also abandoned cafe seating in the main building, which may have been a full service restaurant once upon a time. My group used these tables to eat some lunch one of the days.

    -=-Electronic Locks-=- were a pain. It took 3 trips back to the main desk and a dismantling of the lock with maintenance in order to get it working correctly. This whole ordeal took more than an hour. At 1am, that wasn't really nice.

    Really though, this place ain't all that bad if you need crash space for Coachella. The price is cheaper compared to most and there ain't bugs in your room.

    A bargain by downtown Palm Springs standards, this retro motor hotel really channels the mid-century modern tiki vibe. The check-in lobby looks like a Polynesian longhouse, while palapa huts await poolside. Inside the generic motel rooms aren't anything special, but they are super huge and fairly well sound-insulated. Some pets OK, too.

    Great pool set-up at Caliente Tropics. Fun little restaurant on the property as well. Rooms are very spacious for the price. I recommend it.
