Clean, quiet, well refurbished, and a beautiful courtyard pool area make this hotel a very good value. An enjoyable place to stay. Staff is courteous and attentive, and the breakfast area in former restaurant is conveniently located. We've stayed here multiple times in 2012 thru 2014, and will definitely be staying here again.

I love this hotel! I am never disappointed with the service, room, or the staff. I stay here anytime I visit the Phoenix area, and during the summer, the rooms are very cool. The front desk clerks are always very friendly and helpful too. Great location!

I enjoy staying at this hotel and have stayed here many times due to the location, ease of access to main freeways and especially to the staff, which is outstanding. I was very disappointed in the internet connectivity of their wireless system and since I use it for business, this is a critical issue for me. I have reported it... More

My 2 children and I traveled to Scottsdale Arizona to visit my best friend and this hotel was right near her house, so I decided to make my reservation. From the looks of the hotel on Tripadvisor, I thought the pool and the birds in the courtyard would be nice for my kids. Plus, I couldn't beat the price anywhere... More

First appearance, I was a little put off thinking I booked at an old hotel. But looks we're deceiving. The room was very clean. A/C was cold and had a ceiling fan. The place is older, but we'll maintained. Not a lot of parking. I was coming in late in the evening and had to park on the back side... More

This Best Western is a cut above the norm... there's an aviary in the yard near the pool and employees who give a dam! We always stay at this Best Western when we're in Scottsdale. It's become our go-to accommodation.

Got a little lost trying to find it. The person at front desk was very helpful in giving directions. Room is clean, a little small, one mattress sinks in middle. Grounds are very nice! Swimming pool was very refreshing when the temp was 104.

We stay here at least twice a year for a week since our son lives here. We always take the same room. The hotel is well located to get around to our favorite sites. It is clean and comfortable with excellent rates. The owners are conscientious about upkeep and are often on site. It has obviously gotten to be known... More

Beautiful grounds. Convient to many stores and restaurants. No microwave in the room. Noisy outside my door, smoking allowed in any outside area could be smelled in my room. The pool and grounds are quaint and lovely. The bartender and room attentends were great.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and enjoy the area. I find the staff to be helpful, caring and considerate, not to mention fun to talk to. This trip the only challenge was extremely poor internet connection, but other than that, service was very good.
