Followed my husband to Safford for work. We, along with our 3 kids, stayed here initially because it was the cheapest hotel in the area. The room was clean, but still had a smell of cigarette smoke, but that dissolved with opening the windows for a couple hours. The beds were not uncomfortable necessarily, but I wouldn't put one in...

Our first unpleasant issue we encountered. was with the front desk clerk. Very rude told me it was not her problem to find me a quiet location non smoking room. Her reply to me was "I don't know why you are so pissed" Then the rate I was quoted was not honored. We got into bed and the foot of... More

Just imagine this... You drive up to your hotel that is advertised to look nice and you notice people living in the hotel. You check and while it seems shady, you think "it can't be that bad!" You hike your pregnant self and all of your belongings for the week up to the 2nd floor, you open the door to... More

I stayed here on multiple occasions. The first two weeks the rooms were clean so I left a good review about the Garden Inn on tripadvisor. The third week I came back, something changed, and I had my good review pulled in order to leave this one. This is probably one of the most disgusting motels I have ever stayed... More

This place was very disappointing. There was garbage left on the bathroom counter. We pulled back the covers on the beds and the sheets were stained, there were crumbs in one of the beds. The towels were stained and dirty, there was a washcloth that had been used to wipe something up ( maybe coffee) then folded and put back.... More

We booked a room at the Super 8 at 1587 Thatcher Blvd. WOW!! Were we surprised. This is a really nice hotel. Large room, very clean, nice appointments. Microwave and fridge, tv with cable, good size bathroom. And price, they were SO reasonable and will give discounts for certain organizations, such as AARP and military. Super 8 have vastly improved... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find that we had a clean, quiet room. The only complaint if any would be the air conditioning unit which seemed loud when it cycled on during the night. Otherwise..... we had a good breakfast selection and friendly staff.
