    Fun Place But Way Overpriced With Hidden Costs

    The vibe of this place is very fun. Great pool, fun little hotel restaurant and quirky little touches. But, I was surprised to see extra fees made the cost of the already expensive stay over $700 more.

    I just wanted to lay out by the pool on a beautiful day. Walked down to the pool and it was so packed with people that I couldn’t find a chair. No one around the pool were wearing masks, it didn’t feel right so I went back to my room. The room itself was fine, comfortable bed though. The only thing was that when I pulled the covers off, I found blood stains on the bed sheets. That was concerning.

    Really cute lobby and pool/restaurant area! The rooms were large but sparsely furnished. We had the Mountain View room with the two queens and we noticed that the mattresses were on box springs that didn’t have sheets on them. One of our biggest complaints though was the overcrowded pool. We were hoping to spend some time at the pool, but it was rather small for how large the hotel is and no rules about how long people can stay or enforcing social distancing. People were basically on top of each other and not super friendly when we tried to snag a spot. It’s a nice place to stay with friendly staff and nice renovations, but if you’re looking for a chill poolside to hang out in, you’ll be hard pressed to even find a spot to sit down.

    Colorful LOUD Trash Can

    Great refresh to an old hotel that is exciting and hip. Big, spacious lobby. Lots of free parking. Pool and grounds are what makes this hotel a great place to stay. Awesome food and great cocktails. Bed was soft and sheets/towels very fresh and clean. Here come the issues: rooms are starting to have some considerable wear-n-tear. The nightstands and desk were disgusting with stains. Unfortunately, this hotel draws a younger (grossly inconsiderate) crowd of self-absorbed party-clowns. We noticed people just throwing their garbage on the grounds and in hallways. I feel bad for the staff who try really hard to make this place wonderful. Pool chairs are snatched up immediately in the morning by people throwing their junk and towels of them, then leaving for hours. Security is constantly barking at them. I will say, if you want to watch some massive self-absorbed 'oh look at me' egos, this is the place. It's a big party hotel. Good luck getting a good night sleep with people having a loud party in their room well beyond 3AM. I left so dissapointed and exhausted. Be warned of all the extra taxes and added resort fees when you check out. Extra $38 resort fee each night. Rooms are jacked up in price over the weekend. They also put an extra charge of several hundred $$ on CC in advance for any food charged to the room. The restaurant has delicious food but the wait staff, although super friendly, is sloooooooow. If you like cheap, crusty, littered ultra-trendy, you will LOVE this colorful trashcan hotel. Never again.

    We had a great stay last weekend at The Saguaro! It is a quintessential Palm Springs Hotel with all the bright colors. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the bedding and pillows were and the bathrobes were super cute. I went with a girlfriend and both our kids had an amazing time by the pool. This is also a very 'social media centric' property as this hotel is so instagrammable you can spend all day taking pics and posting hashtags. Loved the Barbie displays in the hotel lobby too! A shout out to Ricardo who was a patient and very pleasant gentleman at the front desk who assisted with some billing issues at checkout. My only gripe about this place is that we had many drinks by the pool and we weren't getting receipts. They just kept saying, 'We'll charge it to the room' which I thought was strange. Needless to say at check out, we had many random charges that were not itemized so it was difficult to dispute. Maybe we did have $182 worth of margaritas by the pool, I don't know! In the future, I will insist on signing my checks as we go or pay separately by card. The food at the restaurant was delicious too. Disappointed both hot tubs were closed during our stay. Would've been nice to warm up as the pool water was pretty chilly. A couple kinks to work out regarding billing but overall I would definitely come back!
