“Best Sleep ... EVER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I was recently at the Francisco Grande hotel on a business trip. It is an older hotel but has a great deal of history. The rooms are a little dated but very spacious, well appointed and very clean. I had a room with a deck overlooking the golf course, with wi-fi, a small fridge and a table to work at. The on-site restaurant and bar provided excellent service and surprising fabulous food.
The best part for me was the amount and quality of my sleep. I travel a lot for business and often spend the first night in any hotel struggling to get to sleep. Not there. I had the best 3 nights of sleep. I was comfortable, it was quiet and my room was nice and dark. I would definitely go back for the food and rest. This is the first time in years that I return well rested from a business trip.
The hotel also has a golf course o- site and rumor has it John Wayne used to golf there frequently. It also has a semi-pro soccer school in the building next door.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in a more remote area outside of Casa Grande (about 1 hour from the main airpor...

Stayed Sept. 6, 2013. Staff were very nice at front desk; room was nicely decorated; bed was comfortable. The view was great. ( Breakfast not included.) An early morning golf tournament was interesting to watch from our balcony. Under $100 for a resort is a great price.

The first time I went to Casa Grande for business I found this hotel. It is in the middle of nowhere, but the service and hotel are top notch. Nothing is better than sitting on the balcony at night when there is a cool breeze overlooking the golf course..
It was interesting to find that the place was built for the SF Giants for spring training and that the pool and hot tub resemble a bat and ball.
Breakfast is always good and there is never a crowd.
The rooms are a little dated but the bed is comfortable and no bed bugs. I have never found there to be an issue with cleanliness. My rooms have always been very clean.
If your travels take you to Casa Grande, you must stay here for a night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor better view.

This Hotel & Golf Resort surprised us... It was originally built for the San Francisco Giants for spring ball.. We were only there one night meeting friends but overall it was a nice complex.. We stayed in the Tower and the rooms were very comfortable..It could use some updating but it was very clean. Beautiful golf complex and practice facilities.. We will go back just to golf.. The food was good and about average priced for the area..They had a lounge which was nice but we thought they were a little over priced.. Now Casa Grande is not our favorite area but this Hotel and Golf complex was a pleasant surprise..The staff was very friendly and the service was good...

Room Tip: We got a king executive and it had a nice sitting area for everyone.. Make sure you take in the view...

Would have never found this jewel without the onlibe search. It's a beautiful 9 story tower of rooms and suites on a gorgeous golf course with e ergreen trees that are mature and magestic! We were exhausted and ordered dinner delivered to our room. So pleased to have the restaurant manager call and inquire as to our satisfaction. Our burger, crene brule and latte were perfection! We were on the 7th floor, overlooking the golf course. Outstanding view! Clean, comfortable and classic. Not new but very well kept from all we saw.
