Katina M.
Staff was very kind, fun, and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, and a pleasant surprise from most hotel breakfast. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious, and had one of best margaritas I’ve ever had at the Cielo Bar. Property is beautiful & unique, the cacti garden really makes the vibe. Great location for exploring the Saguaro National Park!

Great room, cool old-school vibes. Everyone on staff was very friendly and offered great suggestions from food to drinks to things to do on the property & around town. Wish I could stay longer, it feels like one of those hotels where you could just stay and write a book (or just read one) and become friends with everyone here.

The bed was comfortable and room spacious. The hotel grounds are pretty. The fitness room is sub-par and tiny. Other than a non-working bathroom outlet and door lock, my stay was pleasant.
