Hands down my worst ever customer service experience with lodging, and I am in my late 40's and well traveled. My partner and I traveled here for a wedding recently. After non-working curtains and no water pressure or hot water in shower (I mean, who really needs a working shower when getting ready for a wedding?), we also ran out... More

This place was perfect for us to stay! I loved how close we were to the Buffalo Chip and Harolds so that we could hang out and enjoy the bull riding! Also, the rooms were pretty awesome with authentic Western Style rooms and very comfortable beds. The owners are very friendly and helpful when it comes to the rooms and... More

This hotel was located perfectly in the middle of Cave Creek between the local entertainment and great restaurants. The manager who checked us in on Friday night was very courteous and showed us some of the best places to eat in town. He also let us walk around the store while we were waiting for our party to arrive, and... More

Very quaint and authentic hotel, rustic to say the least. The staff was very and pleasant and helped enhance my stay. Super location, near everything that is happening in the town. Cave Creek is an awesome place with many treasures to be found. I will definitely make this an annual visit.

Horrible dirty little hole in the wall with bad plumbing and bad management. Took a cold shower with dribbling water, found someone ELSE'S dirty panties-- TWO PAIRS!-- on the floor of my closet. Television didn't work, sheets were threadbare. Not enough thin chintzy towels and the manager refused to give out any more. Dirt parking lot and dirt driveway means... More

It's really concerning to read about your experience, Sandra. The issues you've described aren't at all in line with our standards and we're very sorry if you ran into problems with cleanliness or other amenities during your stay. On that same note, management should always be around to provide extras like towels or blankets when you need them. As for... More

Credit card charged 6 days in advance of the stay, called to cancel was told sorry, 2 week minimum cancellation date. Even though the days are during a bike rally. If I find that the room was re-rented, well then that seems like robbery. perhaps they should think twice about this type of behavior, compliant also lodged with BBB. DON'T... More

Live in Phoenix but recently decided to take a trip up to Cave Creek and check out the north valley. After a day filed with exploring we figured it would be best to stay the night. We found a great spot Called the Tumbleweed Hotel. It was exactly what we were looking for. A beautiful rustic property located in the... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights while doing some golfing in the area. The best thing about this motel was the location. We were able to walk to some great restaurants/saloons with excellent bbq food and beer and not have to worry about driving back to the motel. The motel rooms were old and in need of upgrade,...

Stay away! I made reservations based upon the advertisement from their website expecting a unique property with charm. Was that a surprise. I checked in, giving my credit card, left the luggage in the room, used the bathroom and dried my hands on the one towel there, and then left to set up for an art show. After doing so,... More

It's very disheartening to read about your experience. Did you ask anyone at the front desk about getting some extra towels or switching rooms? We're always more than happy to accommodate you as best we can if you're unhappy with your room. As for our prices, since we're the only hotel in a popular tourist area we price our rooms... More

I don't know who's writing the reviews but they probably work for this place. The Tumbleweed Motel is a true rip-off in every sense of the word. We booked based on the description on the net and because it was basically that day, we were told that we could not “un-book” the reservation. When we got there the place was... More
