I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Really cool older hotel! The food we had in the hotel was good. The golf course was well kept. Very stress-free place to stay. Additionally, if you are a sports-fan, there are a lot of vintage pictures and memorabilia around the hotel lobby and hallways.

This place rates among the top of our list places to stay. We have stayed at a lot of hotels, and although this is not a new property by any means, it ranks exceptional in our opinion. Except for breakfast, we ate in the bar. Children are acceptable and the staff, was the best. Only three draft beers, but it... More

I golfed here in early December of 2015. The club house is beautiful and has a very classical feel to it. The course was in pretty good shape. I really enjoyed how there are wide open fairways and it is actually quite difficult to lose any balls. This course was a great value at $36 for 18 holes including cart.... More

I say cool, because of the history. Originally built by the San Francisco Giant owner in 1959 for his baseball team, so they has a place to stay for spring training. The pool is shaped like a baseball bat. There is a golf course (although does not look in that great of shape). Work out facility for guests is not... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We were currently in our overseeding for the golf course during you stay, in which the golf course closes to seed new grass that survives our cooler nights in the winter. Our course is now back open, with green lush fairways, and improving greens and bunkers. We invite you to come play 18... More

Upon arriving at the hotel we were concerned as it looks old and run down, that impression was very shot lived. The room we had on the 6th floor was spacious and very comfortable.

The hotel is situated about 5 miles outside of Cash Grande, AZ, which is another way of saying in the middle of nowhere. It is an oasis in the midst of desert and irrigated fields.
