Stayed a Friday night at Sagauro and hung by the pool the next day. The rooms are a good size but are old and have simply been given a coat of bright coloured paint. The fan in the bathroom was super loud and the bathroom feels dated. Most rooms seem to have balconies which is a bonus. They need better... More

I booked 2 rooms just 2 days before we stayed so got a good price. We loved the pictures on the booking site and were not disappointed when we arrived. We were even given an upgrade so had great views of the mountains and the pool. This hotel had everything we needed including dressing gowns, which was lovely. The pool... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 2nd trip to the Saguaro by the lovely poolside and in our comfortable room. It's a fun hotel! The staff is happy to offer great service!!

We decided to visit the Saguaro for a couples weekend and it was a bit of a mixed bag. I'm not sure if I'd return unless some of the items were addressed. One part of it is that the environment, in particular the pool (which is the real draw of this hotel) isn't relaxing with unrelenting bass from the bad... More

We came to Palm Springs from the Bay Area for a long weekend getaway. We are both hotel executives with a major chain but decided to stay at a boutique hotel for this trip. WOW, great staff and the pool scene is the best in the desert! Kudos and thank you to the Saguaro for a memorable weekend!

I am never disappointed. This place has a lively energy that is fun without feeling like spring break. The pool area always has a mixed crowd. Families, young adults, a sprinkling of older folks (50's). The servers are always friendly. The rooms are colorful and spacious. I'm a fan of the desert color scheme. And the location is perfect. It's... More

Chose this hotel online by the looks of the pool and was not disappointed at all. Pool area is great....comfortable lounges and bar service at the pool, although prices for the drinks were a bit hefty. All staff were very pleasant. Shuttle taking you to town and picking you up is great. Our first night when we called for the... More

I don't even know where to start! My first impression was "Kitschy"! This place screams happy, bright fun!

We loved our 3 night midweek stay at the Saguaro, the colorful and happy atmosphere is perfect for a true holiday feel. All the staff from front desk to cleaners were happy and helpful.
