The resort is lovely. We were there for one week for Fiesta Bowl actvities. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Plenty of good quality bath towels...never had to call for extras..a huge plus!! Disappointed with the pillows..they were small and flat..did not match the quality of the linens. Housekeeping was not consistent in replacing shampoo...lotion..etc. Lunch at Rita's was tasty..as was... More

We spent New Year's Eve and Day at the Camelback Inn. What a wonderful experience!!! The grounds are so soothing that you don't even need to go to the on-site spa, but you will anyway just because it's so beautiful. The staff was hired just for me...or so it seemed. The rooms were lovely and well appointed. The food was... More

Wonderful, old school resort with every amenity you could imagine. Unlike other 5 star places, Camelback Inn retains the friendliest atmosphere, from the guests to the staff. Tons of cool things to do, including two beautiful pools, two fitness centers, a great spa, and hiking trails. Highly recommended.

Where does one start? On the positive side the grounds at Camelback are breathtaking. Each corner you turn is a surprise and delight. The buildings are nestled between Mummy Mountain and Camelback. There are lovely fire pits to warm yourself at and plenty of secluded spots to please all. The food service is amazing with meals to delight one and... More

This was our second time to the Camelback and the last time they were going through the renovations. The new upgrades are great. The outdoor area behind RItas is a great place for happy hour. The hotel is outstanding and we had no complaints. Anyone who has eaten the french toast knows what I am talking about. Although I do... More

This is a beautiful resort. We stayed only one night but would love to return. I suspect we had a good/great price (our travel agent made the arrangements). $249 a night with a $100 resort credit. The outdoor lounge area is one of the most beatiful I have ever seen. Water features, fire pits couches to lounge on- just beautiful.... More

This resort offers beautiful views of the camelback mountain and is ideally located to highways and major shopping. The AJ's Gourmet deli and grocerty down the road on Lincoln offers quality snacks and meals. This was our 2nd time at JW Camelback and it won't be our last. Renovations were completed last year with a new lobby, restaurant, and business... More

Camelback is situated just of Lincoln (between Tatum and Scottsdale Road) in Scottsdale. The rooms are located in many buildings (each containing four - eight rooms) and each has its' own veranda or deck. Room was clean and in a Southwestern motif. Room had a desk, however, it was not a business desk designed to be used for any extended... More

Our three day stay at Camelback was totally delightful. We got a very good price from the front desk, the attentive staff could not have been more friendly and the food was delicious...especially their Mexican dishes! The best surprise was the friendly welcome for our lovely Border Collie. The joy of being surrounded by a huge city and awakening to... More
