I was excited when I found out that the Priceline deal I booked last-minute was for the Saguaro. Having seen the hotel in Dwell Magazine and passed by it on a previous trip to Palm Springs, I had high hopes. And, indeed, when the BF and I first checked in, it seemed like it would live up to our expectations.... More

My wife and I just spent 5 days at this hotel and it was a great experience. The staff couldn't be any more friendly and the hotel lobby is fabulous hip interior complete with a ping pong table and lots of comfortable seating. The vibrant color scheme both inside and outside this hotel are so unique and the rainbow of... More

This was better then anticipated since it looked like a dressed up motel six from the outside. This was a Priceline deal which at first I was disappointed when I saw what I had gotten but in the end it turned out very nice. Arrived there late and the late night desk person was very accommodating allowing us an upgrade... More

Dear SheriBeriB, It is always nice to be pleasantly surprised when you get an amazing deal. I am very happy that a priceline deal got you to stay at the Saguaro.

This is a great hotel to hang out at, its fun and relaxed. We used the bikes on offer to ride into town, had great spa treatments, awesome margaritas in the bar and the most delicious breakfast, what more can you ask for? It was one of the few days of the year when it rains in Palm springs but... More

Dear JessSlow, the Margaritas are definitely delicious especially with 100 different types of tequila to choose from. We are delighted that you had a great time and were able to relax even with the rain. That was very brave of you to do the pool scene even with the rain but who could blame you the pool is a great...

I had a good stay. The hotel was not full which made the pool time enjoyable. As with the previous reviews the pool area and restaurants are the highlights of this property. It a very public hotel...most of the rooms look at or down at the pool and would be a "scene" if the hotel was full. The room was... More

It is great that you had a lovely visit with us and that you relaxed, and did some exploration which is what makes Palm Springs even more special as there is so much to do. You can hike one day,...

Having been to the "other" cool hotel just down the street (The ***), I can clearly say that the staff's attitude and customer service to their guests are a night and day difference for the better. Rose at the front desk was a lifesaver, finding us a room at the last possible minute, and then arranging for a card and... More

Although my stay began with a somewhat unfortunate check-in experience, my total experience was very nice. Peter at Reception was really great at crisis management and customer service. Thank you Peter. I like the hotel because it doesn't try to be something it isn't, and delivers excellent value to the consumer. Cute hotel. Very basic, but clean. Great Value.

The staff is wonderful, the hotel is such fun, and the location is great. The rooms are large and comfortable. I highly recommend the Saguaro. The service rivals a 5 star hotel. If you want a carefree vacation, i would suggest you try this hotel.
