Broken! Basic things are not functional. No cold water available anywhere in the entire hotel. AC is not cold, we purchased a fan nearby for our room.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I do apologize that everything was not to your satisfaction. Summers here in Scottsdale are difficult and PTAC units sometime have a hard time keeping up with the extreme temps. We are in the process of total room renovations and hope you would give us another opportunity after the first of the year.

The Saguaro is an older hotel, which - having grown up in Europe - I generally appreciate. They have employed bright colors aesthetically to highlight southern decor, which adds a uniqueness to the hotel. However, they do need to enhance the cleanliness. The staff (front desk and restaurant) were delightful: friendly and efficient. And the proximity to Old Town was a bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was very clean. The towels were small and very worn. The refrigerator was not working as well as the bathtub drain. They was no lighting on the patio. There was an extra resort fee charge of $29.00 that was not mentioned to me when I booked the room. Would not stay there again.

The best thing about this property is the location, being practically in Old Town. However, the condition of this property was awful. There were stains on the sheets and towels. The towels were rough, ripped and looked very old. Everything about this hotel was in “beat up” condition with chips in the sink and scuffs everywhere, even on the popcorn ceiling. And the mattresses were incredibly hard. Worst three nights of sleep in my life. I thought this would be a funky fun hotel. It needs a total makeover.

Kimberly, Thank you for taking the time to post your review, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our location. I will follow up with my staff regarding our towels and linen this should never be in the condition that you described. We will also check into the room and figure out if the mattress needs to be replaced, thank you for allowing us to look into these concerns for you we value your feedback.
