This hotel is a bit dated in decor. It was very quiet, on McDowell Road in an area of car dealerships, next to the Papago Plaza shopping center. It's close to the Desert Botanical Garden where we were visiting. The front-office staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was basic...

We stayed here for 3 nights - the pool is awesome. The rooms all face toward the pool, aviary, glider swing and gazebo area. The jasmine and bougainvillea flowers are growing everywhere and the area smells intoxicating with all the flowers. The staff were very friendly. The grounds were well maintained. NO pets which was great for us. Very close... More

We came here for a return visit and were not disappointed. Except the waffle maker was out of action, so no waffles for breakfast. Overall very good, although the pool area could do with expanding to allow for more sunbeds in the sun during the later part of the afternoon.

This location has all the rooms facing a courtyard so there is no entrance off the street. It is very peaceful, quiet, well maintained and the staff is very friendly. There is an aviary in the courtyard and I woke up to birds singing in the early morning, which was pleasant. They also have an life-size outdoor chess game you... More

The courtyard with pool was very relaxing with all the foliage and ambience. The entire family enjoyed the experience especially the aviary. It's proximity to Old Town Scottsdale was very convenient. Great stay for a great price. We will look to this hotel again for our next stay in Phoenix.

We enjoyed the staff and our stay. We went to a DBacks Spring Training Game. We took in the Desert Botanical Gardens with glassworks by Dale Chihuly. Great time recharging by the pool. Best Western is fortunate to have such caring hard working staff at this location.

The price was right, the location convenient to Old Town and the Fashion Mall. Although the hotel is a bit dated, I would likely stay here again. Clean and quiet. Decent breakfast. I didn't like the pillows; however, the pillows at all Best Westerns are equally bad.

We enjoyed a classic stay at this established, comfortable Best Western in the heart of Phoenix. The gorgeous grassy courtyard with pool created a relaxing motif. Breakfast was made enjoyable with a spacious dining room and regular plates and glassware which enhanced the pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. We will look forward to staying at the BW Papago Inn again.

Tucked away along an avenue of upscale car dealerships, this inn is like an upscale court motel. The well-kept rooms look out onto well-groomed lawn and flower beds, a nice pool, and cages of songbirds. The inn has its own cocktail lounge, with a friendly manager. We were hear in the spring the and air was filled with the scent... More
