These people have done a really great job of renovating an older Best Western. The rooms have been updated, the ceiling fan is a well appreciated touch. There is a little refrigerator. WiFi access was easy and seamless. The free breakfast, sort of continental plus was more than adequate for us and done in a pleasant setting. It is so... More

We really wanted to like this place because the price was great, and the pictures looked nice. It is very old, outdated, very small rooms, no elevator and dirty steps to rooms. Rooms were clean but small.The kids loved the pool because it was very hot and the water was cool. That area is cozy and this place was probably... More

Friendly staff who kept my luggage safe after check out and they also gave me a late check out at no extra cost. Clean rooms. Great breakfast included with friendly restaurant staff. I would definitely stay here again. Oh I forgot... Great rate on the rooms.

Going through medical (cancer) surgeries and treatments and the staff was more than companionate and helpful. They feel like family to us. The room was clean and had all we needed for the long stays we had (9-10 days at a time) I love this hotel and staff!!!!

This was my first time at this particular location and I was very pleased with both the service and quality. The room was extremely comfortable and you definitely can't beat the location for access to Phoenix.

The rooms have had some updating which is really good, but not a quality job. New paint, ceiliing fan, bedding, counters and such. There was a small refrigerator tucked into a hole in the cabinet with large gaps all around so you could see the dirt and gak back there. Staff was super friendly and efficient. Breakfast.......well lets just say... More

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
