We came to Safford to enjoy the Gila Box Riparian area and the Black Hills Rockhounding area with a group. The motel was easy to find and close to everything, including 2 good restaurants. Our room and bed was comfortable and clean. Price a little higher than some motels in the area, but we rely on Best Western for quality... More

Moderate price. Moderate place. Nothing to write home about but adequate is the word to describe it. Breakfast better than most places like this type. Overall a B-. Parking close by room but no elevator for 2nd flood.

I stayed at the Best Western Desert Inn for 8 days. The room was comfortable and clean but dated. I stayed in room 214 in the corner. This was classified as the "honeymoon" suite. King sized bed was nice. There is a large corner soaker/spa tub in addition to the standard bathroom. The breakfast is a standard 2star hotel breakfast... More

The TV remote was difficult to understand. If you didn't have the cable box turned on, then the TV wouldn't work, or if you had the box on and not the TV, then the same result. Also the TV took a long time to warm up, some times up to a couple of minutes.

The staff at this hotel are pleasant, helpful and go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience. I travel with my dog and there was no designated potty place. The grassy areas were heavy with stickers and it was obvious that other visitors did not pick up after their pets. My stay was great, as for... More

This is an older, refurbished motel that is a quentessential experience. If you want a sterile "big box motel" experience, go down the road.So, the eggs are frozen...get over it. This was a pleasant, comfortable value.

an older hotel, but extremely well cared for an comfortable. We were up-graded to a suite, which was nice, since our adult son had his own room. He and I watched a football game while my wife watched one of her favorite shows. Breakfast won't drive Denny's out of business, but for a free breakfast I'd eat it again.

Everything about this hotel was nice. Right down to the breakfast. But someone has to explain to me which member of management buys powdered eggs? Have they tried them? They are disgusting. Why ruin an otherwise great experience? No hotel which serves a hot breakfast should consider this item. Sorry SYSCO or whoever sells it.
