Can't say how the hotel is, but you gotta shop here. Amazing yard art. Mexican art and southwest. Owner was helpful and pleasant. We tried to stay here by getting on-line but no deal. Very centrally located. Will try again next time. Cute town.

If you have to stay overnight, then Tumbleweed is fine. Pricey for what they're offering you- but the room was clean and it was walking distance to restaurants/ saloon. Wifi was not working in this room, had to go outside of the room to get a connection.

Good location but that is about all I can say for this accommodation! Noise and way to expensive for what you get! Picture a Motel six at twice the rate. As Canadians we are being hosed by the high Exchange rate!

This Hotel/Motel is right downtown in Cave Creek. Walking distance to many of the shops and restaurants in the area. The location is great - the amenities are basic but comfortable. It is family owned, not a part of a chain. There is a gift shop at the front of the hotel.

This motel truly is something out of a nightmare. You CANNOT cancel -you will be charged NO matter what! Please don't even bother to call, manager, Jeri Rust is worst example of customer service and common decency that I've ever encountered, other than her assistant who answers her phone

This is a great place to stay. Located in the center of everything in Cave Creek. This Hotel, has a great southwestern charm. The staff is friendly, helpful & knowledgable. The rooms are spacious & clean. The beds are comfortable & each room has it's own unique SW decor. The gift gallery is also worth taking a look at. Filled... More

Writing a review for Tumbleweed Hotel is difficult. How do I find the words to express how much I loved this hotel? I am close to completing 90 Trip Advisor reviews. This one is such a pleasure to write! I travel a lot and usually pass up on the older hotels. My experience at the Tumbleweed changed my view on... More

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

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
