I left behind a $6000 diamond wedding ring and the cleaning staff turned it in and the manager promptly mailed it to us in Canada. The hotel was clean and affordable. Thank you very much, we are extremely grateful.

Having stayed here for a week with 6 others from Scotland on a golfing holiday I can say I was very impressed with the hotel. It may not be 5* accomodation but for the quality of the rooms, Pool facilities, and breakfast I'd say it was more than adequate. Its in downtown Scottsdale easily within walking distance of many resturaunts... More

This is an old hotel but it does have access to a shuttle to the airport. We made. Use of it for a one overnighter and then moved up the road. The staff were ok but nothing special. I would not consider this for a 2 night layover.

Atrocious and Fearful It is unfortunate that I selected the “Howard Johnson, Hotel”, from the possible list of suitable hotels to stay in. On April 18, on the way home from a funeral in El Paso, Texas, I called the resort line asking to make reservation to stay in a hotel. Unfortunately, everything was booked so I called the discount...

Our sincerest apologies during your stay. There is a 24-HR cancellation policy that is implemented with each reservation; if guest choses to cancel the day of reservation the penalty charge is 100% of the price of the room. 1) All rooms are cleaned and deoderized and inspected before any guests occupy any room 2) Again all rooms are well maintained...

The toilet didn't work without manual assistance, the air conditioner stopped working early in the evening and our towels were delivered (after 3 trips to office) wet. Our room was not ready over 2 hours after check in so we were offered a different room. This one came with all the problems.

This place is seriously lacking and needs a remodel. The floor carpet was worn and dirty looking. The bed appeared to be clean, but that is a bout it. The bathroom had mold/mildew. The check in guy was scary and the guy who was supposed to carry our luggage up the stairs didn't. No elevator.
