Great place to rest your weary bones after a long 20 hours travel from Australia! Beautiful bright colours and fun vibe at this hotel. Excellent pool for relaxing and $2 taco night too! Yoga in the morning was also gorgeous and made for a great start to the day!

This hotel is written up as 4 star. Here's what it is: a formal motel that was gutted and painted rainbow colors. Upon arrival on a Sunday, there were five police cars parked in front. Some young kids were having issues and yelling after leaving the bar. It wasn't a great start.... Front desk clerk Christine was kind of rude... More

we stayed here over the July 4th holiday weekend. Surprisingly it was not sold out and we got a great deals through a discount hotel website. Shop around because I priced this hotel on different sites and the prices varied by a lot of $$$$! This hotel is centrally located in Palm Springs and just down the road (highway 111)... More

Great place for a quick Palm Springs getaway. My sister was visiting me from LA over July 4th and I wanted to take her out of LA. I had stayed at The Saguaro a few years ago and loved the atmosphere and design. It is more reasonably priced than The Ace Hotel and provides the same environment. The pool has... More

Just stayed at the Saguaro for July 4th weekend, it was wonderful! Love the look and atmosphere of the lobby and pool, get a room that overlooks the pool! Super friendly staff, and very laid back pool scene with a great bar and place to meet a diverse group of people. The rooms have mini fridges, which makes it great... More

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.
