Humuhumu’s description:
One of five polynesian-themed Tropics motels once owned by Ken Kimes. The most elaborate of the chain was in Palm Springs, now called the Caliente Tropics Resort. This motel is connected to the next door Tiki Cocktail Lounge.

I have stayed at this motel. Its rates are VERY cheap (we're talking $50 for a Friday night), but along with the cheap rates you get cigarette-burned drapes and bed sheets as well as dingy, cream tiled bathrooms. Not ideal for a tropical getaway, but it does the job if you are going through town and need a pillow to lay your head on. All of the quirks get to you? Go have yourself a VERY strong Blue Hawaiian at the TIKI COCKTAIL LOUNGE right in front. Guarantee you won't mind the dinginess of the place after a few of those! Also, one should know that this place has AMAZING carved TIKI statues every 50 feet or so of the motel. They are amazing. Check it out, it's a great little place with loads of potential.
