This hotel is older, but clean and unique being very brightly painted. It gives a kind of artsy appeal. We found that it was very quiet as we were on the third floor. I think if we were in a room below someone else you would be able to hear them walking above you as the walls seem to be... More

The lobby was beautiful and they upgraded us to a suite so that was really nice of the hotel. The Saguaro was aesthetically pleasing from the outside but the rooms were kind of shabby looking. I asked the concierge what the Saguaro used to be and I was informed that it had been a Holiday Inn Express and you can... More

This is a great hotel! I travel for business a few times a month so staying in hotels is part of my life. This was a wonderful surprise. I visited Palm Springs for a friend's 50th birthday party and this hotel served as the "base" for our weekend fun. The friendly staff, amenities and overall ambiance made this overall experience...

I like unique offbeat places and the Saguaro is one. Interesting place with bright colors. Everyone was very friendly and nice. One suggestion - try to get a room on the pool (inside) side it is a bit more quite - in the morning traffic could get loud I out outer room but no problem at night.

Clean place, staff was nice, but the room above we could hear them walking around all friggen night. Staff gave us complimentary drinks for our anniversary, which was very nice treat. Terrible sound barriers. Not sure I would stay there again just because of the noise between the rooms.

I was only looking for a good sleep during this 4 days trip as I had nothing else on my agenda. The floors are paper thin and it gets louder when you have bigfoots living in the room above. I do not have any major complaints about the other facilities at the hotel. Staff is friendly and pool is good..

Has a very nice room, there is a great restaurant, and the Yoga Teacher in the morning was so good I held the tree position for a very long time. This was just a really nice place and the price was reasonable at the time. Seems it has become popular and noticed over Thanksgiving the price was higher than usual,... More

I was not sure what to expect as the place is so affordable, but it was a cute older property redone in bright colors with nice rooms. The staff was very friendly and I think I eventually had everything on their menu by the pool and at the bar. The food is the star; fantastic Mexican dishes like ceviche and... More

We were here for a party. For what it's worth, the party was great and the hotel's event department put on a great event. Totally professional with excellent food, etc. I also got some coffee and an omelet to go in the El Jefe restaurant and those folks were great too. Food was expensive, but good. As for the rooms...

We had a great time here. I didn't find it loud on the weekends as so many others here are complaining about, but maybe we hit it at the right time? We loved it so much we are returning again. They keep the pool very clean and the grounds are well kept. The rooms are clean and cheery. A huge... More
