This is an older property, however, the bathrooms have been remodeled and the rug and furniture have been updated. The bathroom is small but functional. It is an easy on and off Highway 40. The best part was the proximity to Old Town. It was late when we arrived so only the restaurants were open but I would love to... More

This is one of the best BW we have stayed in. The southwest decor is nice not overpowering. They have a nice restaurant attached which give excellent service. We had a young man by the name of John that have such great service. We will definitely stay here again if and when our travels bring us back here.

We have stayed at a lot of BWs over the years, because they have a very accepting policy for pets. That is no longer a consideration for us anymore, but we stay at BWs anyway. This location is one of the top 4 we have ever stayed in. The breakfast was very good--and it was served, not a buffet. The... More

We're locals, but had to spend a night away from home, so chose this hotel to pump up our rewards points. We got so much more than extra points - this hotel is wonderful!

We were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. We were traveling with our 2 pups. This place is very pet friendly. Room service meant we did not have to leave them alone in the room while we looked for a place to eat. Breakfast is in a restaurant right off the lobby & is cooked to order... More

We traveled to Arizona and stayed here on our way out. We liked it so much, we made sure to stay on the way back. It was very clean, very quiet and very nice. We had read reviews so, we requested the upper level, as well as, the side away from the highway. It made for a perfect stop. This... More
