I was browsing through hotels available in Scottsdale, Arizona for an overnight stay and came across with this deal. My family was pleased with the accommodation. We were given a 2 queen bed non-smoking suite on the second floor. The room was huge with 2 flat screen TVs, one in the living room area, and one smaller one in the... More

We were totally pleased with our stay. The service was excellent. The people working the breakfasts were extremely pleasant and very helpful, accommodating any reasonable desire. The room was well kept, and needed items were always replaced. The spacious accommodations made the stay extra comfortable. The only area of concern might be the air conditioning was a bit difficult to... More

I love staying at this hotel. I always feel safe and I am treated very good. Salvador prepares the excellent breakfast that I enjoy each day. He is a great guy and he always has a well-prepared and delicious breakfast. Anthony Lyons

Very nice hotel next to small regional airport with lovely lobby offering coffee or refreshing ice water. We stayed over a weekend but have the feeling they probably cater to weekday business travelers. We had a bedroom and living area, 2 TVs, and a tiny kitchenette area. It was clean and nicely appointed. The bathroom was very small. The breakfast... More

#1 & #2 reasons I like this hotel - comfortable beds and quiet location. I thought being near the private airport would be noisy, but it wasn't. The bed was wonderful and my room was clean. Liked the small coffee pot, microwave, and refrigerator in the separate living room area. Would stay here again.

I read the reviews on Foursquare, they were obviously wrong in my opinion. Clean room, great amenities, nice pool, good breakfast... overall a great deal for the money. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Scottsdale.

Since this hotel is right on Scottsdale airport, our company puts up flight crews and from time to time I will stay here if I have business in town. Hopefully now that this hotel is a Best Western again, they will do better on the up keep. The lobby has been renovated and looks very nice. The rooms haven't changed... More

We had to stay here, as all other hotels were booked at the time of our stay. Where do I begin with the problems? The door to the room did not work properly, and got so stuck that the only way in was to have another person let you in from inside, so someone had to be in the room... More

I apologize you felt your issues were not handled while you were still on property. Unfortunately your name is not posted here so I cant check on the status of your reservation/refund.

This hotel met all my general travel requirements - free breakfast, free wifi, and free parking. Plus, the breakfast was actually very good, and the pool area was nice. I didn't spend lot of time on the property since I was attending a conference elsewhere, so I can't say much else. I loved the suite layout of the room. I... More

Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone to stay there. We will stay again if we are ever back in the Scottsdale area again. All staff from check in to check out was fantastic and very professional. The breakfast was excellent and better than a lot of breakfast we get at restaurants.
