TMZ has learned ... Minaj was hanging out at the pool at the fancy Palomar Hotel when she got into a very intense verbal spat with an unidentified man she was staying with.

Nicki told a hotel employee to call police ... while the man went to their hotel room. Nicki followed soon after.

When cops and paramedics arrived, Nicki told authorities their poolside fight continued inside of their room ... and the man hit her in her lower lip.

The man had already left the scene when cops arrived ... but Nicki insisted she did NOT want to press charges.  Nicki also claimed she was NOT in a relationship with the alleged attacker.

Cops tell us an incident report was taken ... but no charges will be filed per Nicki's request. 

Calls to Nicki's rep have not been returned.

If you're not going to press charges, then why call the police? Just to waste their time and keep them from being able to respond to real emergencies where people might actually need help? Great! Someone staying at a Best Western and knows how to act has more class.

Oh Nicki never let a man hit you and get away with it. It send him the message he can do it again and this time it'll be your upper lip.

I'm not a Nicki fan nor do I think she's the best thing ever. But regardless, when a woman i***** by a man it is NEVER OKAY. And all you people who are glad she got hit are messed up.

I do, however, think she's stupid. Why not press charges? Not doing that in the first place is sending the message that it's okay for him to lay his hands on her again.
