Resort houses a casino, several restaurants and multiple pools
Smell of smoke permeates the hotel, guests warn
Off I-10 just 10 miles east of Palm Springs, California, Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa offers low-key, comfortable accommodations combined with a fast-paced, fun-loving atmosphere. As its name suggests, this property houses an impressive casino stocked with table games and slots. But some guests warn against spending too much time here if you have a sensitivity to cigarette smoke. Meanwhile, recent guests describe the rooms as spacious and modern – perfect for a retreat from the casino floor. Accommodations come equipped with flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet access and oversized soaking tubs. For dining, Agua Caliente Casino Resort's multiple eateries earn high praise from visitors, especially the prime cuts served at The Steakhouse. And the on-site concert venue and the lively pool area receive two big thumbs up from rowdier travelers.

Critic Reviews



As in Las Vegas, the Agua Caliente casino is in the lobby, but once you get into the spacious, beautifully appointed rooms of the resort, all of the cacophony at the entrance is forgotten. The decor is a contemporary take on the Arts and Crafts style, with lots of white offset by dark wood.
