I could go on and on about this place! My partner and I have stayed here several times and love it. Very chill, calm vibe but can be very fun on the weekend. Love the music they play-a little lounge-y, a little dancey, very cool and modern. We left our patio door open to enjoy all weekend.

This is a great middle of the road place to stay. I only say middle of the road because there isn't room service etc. they do have an onsite restaurant. The recent switch from Holiday Inn to this brightly decorated artsy post modern hotel has made this place a pretty sweet place to stay. First and foremost they are pet... More

Stayed her with a large group of friends for a destination wedding — the rooms are clean (and super bright!), and the view from the pool and the balconies overlooking it are awesome, especially at sunset. If you're a light sleeper I'd suggest getting a room on the third floor so there isn't anyone on top of you. The floors are... More

As a family, we went for a little 4 day vacation and ended up extending it for an entire week. The pool and hot tub were of good temperature for off season, and we loved the night seating with fire heating/lighting. The staff was very friendly, and were flexible about cleaning the room when we were out. Overall, it was... More

We stayed in January which was nice because it was quiet. I was able to get a very reasonable price on a last minute deal so I did not pay full price but for the price I paid I have to say this was the best weekend I've had in a long time! The hotel was clean and inviting from... More

I didn't find all that many dog friendly places in this area that took dogs bigger than 25 pounds. The Saguaro is an old motel remodeled with flare. It was cute and totally adequate. It isn't a bargain, but I think that's how it goes in Palm Springs. People were friendly and the dog was welcome enough.

i pretty much chose this hotel based on the fact that it was rainbow colored, the pictures sold me. it did not disappoint in that aspect, the rooms are bright too. what i was underwhelmed with was the rooms themselves, i had initially thought this was an actual 1960s Holiday Inn what was revamped to be a chic boutique hotel,...

Dear Brandi R, Thank you for reviewing the Saguaro on tripAdvisor. We really appreciate it! So glad you enjoyed our colorful brand of mid-century Hollywood glam. Concerning your comment about the age of the Hotel: Actually the Hotel was remodeled 3 years ago, but was originally constructed in 1965. It was constructed in the last years of the Mid-Century Modernism... More

We drove 2100 miles to Palm Springs in 3 days & checked in to the Saquaro exhausted. It was a mild surprise with great food & drinks. The service was great & the front desk was supurb. It was a great place to lay over on Newyears Eve.
