7/19/14 Why we chose this place is still a mystery. Late check in on Saturday night. Clerk at counter never stood up. Room #307 is in a building that reeks from mold and mildew. After drove around complex a few times. Very poor marking for entry to room. Room is old, furniture and lamps are 1980's. Shower was broke. Called... More

Stayed here last year in May. For the money, thought it was great. Excellent Mexican restaurant a short walk down the street. Pool was clean and warm. Beds are comfortable. Already booked to go back this September. Thinking of making it an annual "girls" trip.

Great location; close to freeway (Superstition), malls and restaurants. Great price. Friendly, helpful staff. THE NOT-SO-GOOD Time and weather have obviously taken it's toll on this former beauty. The decor was outdated and there really wasn't... More

Dobson Ranch Inn accommodated us for the state track meet this spring. We've stayed there many years because they do such an outstanding job. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and breakfast was good. We'll be back there for the state meet as long as I am coaching! I would definitely consider them if I ever needed to stay in Mesa... More

Dobson Ranch Resort is an ok hotel, it is not a resort! It has a pool, but no other "resort" amenities. The room was clean, but so dark. Someone in my group described the room as "on the run from a drug cartel" style. The location is very convenient for getting on the Superstition Freeway and anywhere else in Tempe/Mesa... More

Ended up staying here as part of a group and, like others have written, was concerned because of all of the negative comments. I would liken the room to an older Comfort Inn -- not good, not bad -- okay. Room was clean, I would describe decor as "threadbare." Lighting is poor in the room (and in the vanity area).... More

I had to stay at this hotel with a group, and when I read the reviews I almost didn't go. I even called the hotel in advance to try to ensure I got a renovated room, but they gave me the standard lame, "We can't guarantee that" line. So I went to the hotel with no little trepidation. Overall, I... More

2nd Stay... we booked this hotel solely based on price. We got a great rate that we couldn't find anywhere else. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and settle for less. It's not a two star hotel. But definitely not more than 3. The free breakfast could really up the reviews if they hired someone who didn't overcook... More

I chose the Dobson Ranch Inn because approximately twenty years ago I lived in the Dobson Ranch area and was familiar with the property. Back in those days, the Dobson Ranch Inn was the closest thing you could get to a resort in Mesa, AZ, before the building boom of the mid to late 1990's. So, I had a picture... More
