When visiting the Federal Correctional Institute at Safford we always stay at the Best Western Desert Inn. The front desk staff makes our visit so much easier. Breakfast is served early so we can get to the Prison entrance first. The front desk has rolls of quarters to use in the vending machines at the prison. The staff knows how... More

Nice, clean room, free wifi, and breakfast was great. My only complaint is that the hotel didn't have any option to keep your towels to save water, etc. I tend to prefer places that try to be more Eco-friendly.

Very well. About 250 miles away from the Hotel the next morning I discovered I had dropped my Insulin on the floor of my room. I called the hotel and spoke to the attendant. She assured me that if it was found she would call me. She did find the insulin and I asked her to mail it to me... More

This is a clean, convenient and reasonably priced hotel in a small town, Safford AZ. AC was colde and quiet; TV worked great, bed was comfy, water pressure a little low but pool was nice and refreshing. Would stay again

This was a clean hotel with nice breakfast. A good location in Safford with easy in-and-out. Staff was particularly friendly. We were a group of 7 and needed a place to eat our 'picnic dinner'. They not only offered us the dining room but offered to make fresh coffee!

My family relocated from California to Texas. We stayed at this hotel enroute to Texas. Everything was very clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast in the morning in the lobby was really nice with hot plates of eggs and more than just your average cold bagel and cream cheese pack. It's also conveniently located down the street from a... More

I booked this hotel for my Dad. He was attending a graduation Ceremony. He loved the breakfast and the fact the were able to accommodate him with a bottom floor room. Thanks Desert Inn for your great customer service.

This motel was average to say the least. The pool was small and needed cleaning. The motel is right on the highway with only a Chinese restaurant on-site. The room and bathroom was sufficient for one nights stay.

Thank you for staying with us at Best Western Desert Inn. I have brought up the pool issue with maintenance and apologize for the inconvenience it caused. We hope to have another chance to accommodate you if you are in the Safford area in the future. More

Motel was very comfortable. Rooms were very nice decorated and with all around the motel with new tile on walkways made it look more like a high class motel, I enjoy staying there due to the great people that run it and with the trip rewards what else can I say.
