I was a little apprehensive about staying here because the reviews were SO mixed but I am glad we did. The colors were bright and the hotel was very clean---the whole place had a retro/mod vibe. Our room was pool view and spacious--only negative was that the TV was a little fuzzy--but we were there to enjoy the pool, etc... More

We're glad you gave us a try, too! Palm Springs is the ultimate spot for a quick summer get-away. Between our vibrant pool experience and all the fun to be had downtown, it sounds like you had a blast! Thanks for the kind words. We hope to see you next time you need to blow off some steam!

DJ at the pool on Sunday 6. Great value--I hope that their prices will remain low as popularity spreads 7. Dark curtains block out the sun! Cons: 1. This is an... More

Sounds like you all had a blast! We certainly do have a way of attracting the young-at-heart. Although we do welcome all age ranges, you make an interesting point that our weekend pool events may not be what families are looking for. I will certainly take your feedback into consideration, so thanks for pointing that out. Thanks for the fantastic... More

Let's see...where do I begin? Let me count all the ways that the customer service is terrible at this place. It began with a simple phone call inquiring if we could check in early since we were coming with a dog. We were told that there was absolutely no early check in, but that we could lay by the pool...

Robyn, I'm sorry to hear about this. It is truly unfortunate that you experienced this miscommunication prior to your arrival. We do indeed offer early check-ins, and as you saw, dogs are welcome at our pool. I know how inconvenient this was for you, and I will be sure to review our policies with our staff to avoid this confusion... More

My fiancé & I made last minute reservations & ended up at Saguaro to celebrate our anniversary. As soon as we arrived we received a friendly welcome from Jaime, at the front desk.

Bad renovation. Painted wall paper and dirty tile in the bathrooms make for a low budget perfume on a pig. They monitor outside liquor in the pool area. I am not a kid.

However, we know there are is always room for improvement, and you have certainly left us some food for thought. Hotel pools that have liqour licenses are bound by the license and can... More

The saguaro palms hotel in palm springs is one of my favorite hotels . The bright colors and minimalist style is so fresh...it brings a young fun crowd to its eateries and pool scene. The room was spacious, very clean and if you get a first floor room your patio is nicely private thanks to the lush landscaping.  The bar... More

We spent 3 nights in Palm Springs with another couple, as part tradition and part getaway from our San Francisco "summer". We've stayed at the Riviera in the past, but decided to try the new Saguaro this time. It was an incredible value, and we had a wonderful time! The pool was lively and fun, and had a great DJ...

I made reservations here after buying a Groupon. I originally planned on going with one of my best girlfriends but she got sick just before the trip. I didn't want to miss going and forfeit the cost of a night's stay since it was too short notice to get my money back, so I went alone. The resort was very... More
