My husband and I stayed at the Buckskin Lodge in Heber, AZ on the way home from a 5 day motorcycle ride through the high country of AZ and NM. The Buckskin is right on Hwy 260 in Heber, and is one of 2 hotels in the immediate area. I would like to review this motel using the Pro/Con system,... More

I just called to ask about vacancy and the manager said no, don't even ask and hung up on me. When I called back and confronted her, she said she knew she was rude and heard it before. I haven't even stayed there, I would never recommend this place!!

We thank you for your opinion. You called on 4th of July weekend for a room. When Janice, our manager told you we had no rooms available, you got very upset with her. Heber's 4th of July Festival and the other festivals and events that take place in Heber throughout the year have an amazing following. Thus given the limited... More

Went and stayed during June and for any of you in the valley it was just wonderful. Weather was a tad bit windy but upper 80's, crystal clear skies and rustic pines atop towering granite cliffs. The rooms themselves were fantastic, clean and spotless. The oak and pine decor meshed perfectly with the lodges surroundings, cable and wifi on the... More

So we live in Heber, and we were gearing up for a trip to Phoenix to visit family, I woke up Friday morning, turned on the hot water and whoopsy, no hot water. No bath all day for me and the kids, before our trip. So I had driven past the Buckskin Lodge being a resident and thought, you know... More

If you aren't going to take advantage of the cabins and private vacation places to stay in Heber, but still want the feel of a cozy, small mountain town, this is the place! Very neat and clean, first of all, not very pricy at all for the location and cleanliness. Much cheaper than best western and much nicer staff! I... More

Great little place. Quite and comfy. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and even had a frig and microwave. Felt this was a good value. I defiantly stay again the next time I am in the area.

Very quaint motel. It has a nice tree-shaded front courtyard with picnic tables and gas grills. Also has a covered porch with lots of benches and chairs where we were able to visit and enjoy the mountain air. Rooms are small and basic. All rooms are a little different—some with nice size bathrooms, some with very small ones. Each room... More

We're moving our motor home to Heber and needed a place to stay. Based on other reviews we decided to stay here. Room looked to be newly remodeled. Except for the hard mattress the room was perfect. Conveniently located. What else can I say? Just a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

This place was so amazing. I was visiting my hometown for the first time in over 15 years and this hotel made me feel like I was right at home again. Great price and located within walking distance of restaurants.

Very friendly and helpful couple runs this inn, room is good size in a very good condition. We particularly like the heater which heat up not just the bedroom but the bathroom too. Only 2 Inns in Heber and price from Buckskin is absolutely good value! Area for improvement is that the wifi signal needs to be stronger!
