We only stayed for one night but sure wish we could have stayed longer. After reading some reviews on here I was a little worried. All I can say is those people are either extra picky or they hate their life, lol! This place was adorable, so cozy, fun & very comfortable. The staff was amazing & the pool was... More

This hotel had great a vibe....stylish, very friendly staff and a really comfortable bed. I loved it with only a few exceptions (see below). It was a great value! Parking and yoga were even free. I stayed for a Sunday and Monday night so there was no crowds or noise. The pool was great and open until midnight. There were... More

The Saguaro Hotel is defined as a boutique and I have to say it is the picture of the definition. The hotel sits on the corner of East Palm Canyon Drive. Walking in one feels like they just might be walking where someone like Marilyn Monroe may have walked years ago. The décor is retro and there is even a... More

This hotel was a blast! They have a great layout and really fun pool. The restaurant was delis. The paintings and designs make this a fun vacation for a bunch of friends. Staff was very attentive and courteous.

This is not a four star hotel - maybe three. It is a tired old place with a fancy paint job. The lobby and pool areas are OK, but the room was simply awful. Small, smelled musty, dark, uneven floors and uncomfortable bed. I could hear every sound above and below me. If you get this room for $100 it... More

Dan is the man. We came early to switch rooms and he upgraded us to the best room in the whole hotel. I will definitely be coming back again. My friends came to visit 2 of the days and they were so impressed, we're all coming back out in August.

I have stayed here twice. Once through hotels.com and the second time on Hotel Tonight app. There won't be a third time. Even at $99 a night, I feel that it is way over priced. Balcony was nice, but the buck stops there. Walls are thin, halls are dark, and should you chose to subject yourself to the punishment of... More

The employees were all very nice but the hotel was disgusting. Checked in around 4pm. 1st room was not a pool view as requested and at the end of the stairway.... More

Unfortunately we did not recover as quickly as we should have from the hotel buyout (SplashHouse) over the weekend which concluded on the day you checked in. Because of this the condition of the Hotel was an anomaly. We have taken steps to assure our clean-up is more timely.after... More

We stayed one night here and it is a cute place but if you are looking for a luxurious room this is not the hotel for you. The rooms were clean and colorful but just did not have a feel of luxury.
