Re-read the hotel name, it is NOT the DESSERT INN. Lol, great place to stay. Clean (most important) helpful and friendly staff, pool, good breakfast and easy in and out. I will stay here again when I return to Safford. The price was good, I travel a lot so I appreciate finding a good room for a decent price. If... More

Very friendly staff, recommended a great steak place just down the road. The Copper Steer Steak House was a great place to eat, a little on the pricey side though very good. We were traveling on motorcycles, if headed west ride thru Lincoln National Park a great ride

I found the facility to be clean, the grounds were maintained and the employees were courteous and helpful. Good quality for the price. Comfortable beds. Breakfast included was like most places that offer it.

For the money, the Best Western was excellent. Thank you to all the staff. The only thing I really dont care for is that this questionaire is requiring me to enter 200 characters or more. I was finished already. Not a good end to a positive experience. So please look at that issue. Thank you.

Clean room, with free Wi-Fi. This hotel has a nice breakfast room with the normal waffle maker, scrambled eggs, bacon, toaster, yogurt, juices coffee, tea, and cereals. I'd say the value to price ratio is in the right place.

For a Best Western it was just o.k. not a great place. The rooms were just standard rooms nothing to write home about. The beds were not the most comfortable in the world but, they were not the worst either.

When traveling as a job I try to stay at a hotel that has standards of not only cleanliness but staff is professional. This property has that. Breakfast as well has something for everyone. I bring my own pillow when i travel - their pillows were soft however. Lots of outlets for your convenience. And if you get a chance... More

The office staff were very friendly and helpful. Megan really had to work to get us a non-smoking room, as this motel is full most of the time. She was able to get it for us for five days. When we needed to extend our stay, the manager April had to manuever things for us to stay in our room,... More

Shower was very bad...hardly useable. The lady at the front desk very uncommunicative. Did not give us any information regarding wi-fi, breakfast, anything!!! Room was very noisy ( right next to office & breakfast)

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. I apologize for your room being by the breakfast room where we tend to have more commotion in the mornings.

We came to Safford for a funeral. The staff made our stay here very welcome. They were polite and helpful. Breakfast was good. Next time we stay here (and we will), I hope it will be under happier circumstances. Room was clean and fresh even though this is an older establishment. Better than many we have stayed at.
