Overall, this hotel had excellent service. It is nestled at the foothills of Mt Graham in Safford, AZ. Pleasant, courteous staff, very helpful, with none of that annoying condescending attitude. Very clean room, with a super comfortable bed. Full breakfast only adds to the comfort of the stay. I would recommend this hotel, and would stay here again, given the... More

After a long drive we appreciated having the room ready upon arrival. They readily confirmed our reservation and provided us an upgrade to a King Bed. The staff is excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing a pleasant stay.

We stayed two nights and felt very safe and satisfied. Breakfast was very good with good choice of breakfast items. Priced a little higher the others in the area. No jacuzzi, bummer. Otherwise a great stop. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

all the things that matter -- professional staff, value of the stay - I don't need the expensive stuff - I just like clean, comfortable, internet access and outlets available. This property was busy with guests, but the staff was very helpful.

Clean, comfortable, great staff. What more could you all for? I had made a mistake with my reservation but the desk clerk was able to get a room on the ground floor. Breakfast the next day was plentiful and tasty. We are later in the morning and the entire breakfast buffet was kept week stocked. We will stay here again... More

My husband & I checked in following a long day of motorcycle riding. The front desk clerk was pleasant & engaging. Our room was located on the second level near the outside staircase. The queen bed was made with fresh clean linens & was very comfortable. The room was clean. The bathroom was small, but clean & well maintained. Overall... More

This is a clean, comfortable and economical place to stay when visiting Safford. It has all the amenities you would need for a weekend stay and free breakfast! This is my second time staying here and I have not been disappointed either time.

Hotel room was not clean and very noisy. Breakfast was good and well presented. The staff was not knowledgeable and seemed confused about the check-in process. Everyone was cheerful but not happy to be there. The room did not appear to have been vacuumed recently and the carpet in front of the tv was stained and very noticeable. The experience... More

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.
