Caliente Tropics

Tiki culture accommodations

If Tiki Culture is your thing then the Caliente Tropics hotel is the place for you.

Built in the mid 1960s when Polynesian-themed A-Frames were popping up everywhere, this hip yet unpretentious large-scale, renovated, affordable motor Inn boasts one of the biggest swimming pools in Palm Springs as well as a great southern location with endless mountain, palm tree and Tiki filled views.

For Polynesian Pop enthusiasts, the annual Tiki Caliente celebration is held here every Spring and worth booking a room for.
