My first look at room was please to see a nice room . After getting into room started smelling like someone had pee in there. Light switch at door didn't turn on light. There 4 different round spots on floor that were large which could explain the smell. Was to tired to change rooms. I had a airfresher to try... More

Location and room were both good. I didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. Good that there was one. Staff was friendly and helpful Walking distance to resturants is a plus. CATV good. I was a bit dissapointed in the in-room wi-fi, as the speeds were a bit slow. Otherwise a good overnight stay.

The breakfast selection was excellent--yogurt, cereals, many hot items--something for everyone. We also appreciated the in-room coffee service. However, the shower drained slowly until you play with it; the TV should never have been so difficult to operate. The dog-walking areas are an empty lot across the street, reasonably junk-free, and an empty lot behind the hotel, which was covered... More

You will likely be happier somewhere else. The staff try here, but clearly they aren't given much to work with by the property owner. Property is dated and needs significant maintenance. They don't have enough parking, and the parking they do have are spaces that are too narrow for normal vehicles (OK for a motorcycle). Wi-fi is slow and disconnects... More

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.

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.
