Spontaneous Surprise

We took a spontaneous to Palm Springs, played hotel roulette when booking rooms and got The Saguaro. Best decision ever. The vibe of the hotel is young, fun, and relaxing. We only stayed one night but we definitely want to stay more the next time around. Ate at both restaurants, loved them both! Room was clean, comfortable and super cute. Can’t wait to go back!

Fun hotel..close to everything in Palm Springs are

Pros: The pool area was very clean, bright colors, clean pool water. It was quiet. Plenty of hot water and fun environment.
Cons: We had to ask for more than one washcloth and the stopper in the tub did not work. Other than that the hotel was great.
Location: Close to downtown, close to the tram, close to restaurants. Loved the locations.
Stayed two nights. Had a lot of fun. Hotel was clean, pool area was very nice.

Almost there

This hotel has the right idea with decor but it’s like they haven’t really committed to finishing. There are dirty white walls that they could easily put a fresh coat of paint on. Our room was on the bottom floor facing the parking lot and smelled of old smoke. I probably would not stay there again but my 19 year old daughter said she would.

Very Convenient

Less than a ten minute ride from the airport. Hotel conveniently located across from a strip mall including grocery store. Also, only a 20ish minute walk from downtown. No rental car needed! Definitely staying here next time!

Cool hotel and great atmosphere

Overall, the hotel experience was awesome. Atmosphere, pool, retaurants, stairways, interiors.. We just appreciated the detailed artistic approach. Free parking was great, too! A big concern were the flies; we couldn't lay out by the pool without flies landing on us and everyone else. Also, the room itself was spacious and aesthetically pleasing. balcony chairs were a little dirty and the leather upholstery on the chairs/tables had big stains. The pool bar was only open from 11am - 6pm, even though the pool was open til midnight; if they extended those hours, keep some low music on, and lit up the pool at night, the experience would've been more awesome.

Be Aware of Resort Fee

Pros: Comfortable bed.
Cons: Abolish the resort fee.
Location: There is a supermarket across the street and a shopping center a couple blocks down.
I ended up at this hotel by purchasing a TOP SECRET HOTEL DEAL. not much of a deal - it was a $15 discount and only then did I learn I was required to pay $25 plus tax in "resort fees." (Almost $30 in resort fees). This is not a resort. It is aglorified hotel with a colorful swiming pool. On my way to my room I noticed that the plaster is falling off in places in the hall ways and the walls are marked and dirty. My first room was dark and smelled musty (rooms have wall-mounted a/c units which can be smelly) I requested another room. This one was brighter and less damp but outside the door were a pile of old ishes. The coffee cup was molding in the bottom. It was still there when I checked out. The bathrooms are old and not very nice. The bathroom was nicer at the Quality Inn I stayed at a month ago. The bedroom is clean and colorful - to the extent some people might find obnoxious. On the upside, the front desk staff were very nice and the bed was very comfortable. Also the alarm clock has nature noises setting which you made need to drown out loud music at night. If you are in your 20's this might be a good place to go party -- but be midful you will have to pay another almost $30 on top of your room fees. If you are a young family or business traveler, I would not recommend. The wi-fi is terrible, nights are noisy and the premises not worth the extra fees.
