“TOP HOTEL IN HAVASU!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went to Havasu for a family wedding in January, a quieter time of year with cold weather—so the hotel would likely have a different atmosphere in summer (an old friend who knows the hotel, called it a "Party Hotel"). But our experience was perfect for our needs:

Small and personal, the staff was totally welcoming and delightful. It is right at the water's edge of Lake Havasu with a great view of London Bridge (which was still decorated for Xmas last week). The room was expansive, the Tempurpedic beds were heavenly, the pillows, linens and towels were top notch—spa-like. Very accommodating! My teenage daughter especially loved the giant spa-tub.

If I looked for a negative: There was not enough counter space in bathroom (allowing for giant tub); one sink. Also, there was no lid on the toilet. That's the worst we could come up with, and it does not deter me for a moment from giving all top marks to the hotel.

Our own experience was very favourable of Heat Hotel. We stayed between Xmas and New Year for one night and were given a lovely room overlooking the Bridge.

Check-in was quick the room spacious and comfortable. Good flat screen tv, lovely mattress, whirlpool bath. The hotel is quite funky / modern so perhaps a little less suited to the more mature traveller and it wasnt a particularly busy time for our stay.

The corridors and room doors do look a little tired but our room was very nice inside.

Room Tip: Bridge facing rooms also will be nearer the outside music bar which may be noisy at times although w...

We recently stayed at the Heat while in town visiting family for the holidays. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. We had a nice room that faced the bridge. The room was very nice, bed was super comfy and the decor was very modern. The manager, Allison, greeted us when we arrived and she was very nice and helpful. We can't wait to go back and stay here again! I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice, clean and modern hotel for a reasonable rate!

From the time we walked down the hall to our room I knew we made a mistake staying at HEAT. The carpet was dirty and worn. We walked into our room and I was stunned to see a small 27" TV with a HORRIBLE picture. My wife who could care less about TV even scoffed at how bad the picture was on the TV. For the price of the room, there should be a quality flat screen HD TV. The bed seems good and the view is good. Overall, I wouldn't stay here again.

Pros:
- Glass of wine when checking in or free drink
- Hot shower with fast water
- Great view overlooking the water underpass of the London bridge
- Comfy bed
- Quiet...but may be due to it's freezing cold and winter weather kept the party-people away (PLUS!)

Cons:
- Person at front desk, slow and confused.
- Ran a "paper" voucher twice! One for my room charge, another in case we broke something (?) I'm 55 and not the Rolling Stones. By the way...WHO makes carbon copies of your credit card anymore and my full credit card number could be seen and no "coding" of the number for privacy!
- Check-in at midnight took a LONG time and we were tired!
- Dirty carpets in the hallway and marred walls....hmmm...what was our room going to look like?
- Room overpowered smell of Lysol or some "cover-up" spray. Yeck!
- Front desk did not offer the $20 voucher that I had signed up for on the internet.
- Walls were boring white & beige. Not an exciting room at all. So much for being a "hip" hotel
- Glad I had my slippers, carpets not really clean

I'm sure this place is struggling and I feel for them...but a good carpet cleaner, fresh coat of paint and train, train, TRAIN the staff and it could survive.

But for right now it's not a "4 star" at all.....2 star on the high side.

We stayed at the Heat Hotel on 12/19/2012. As repeat customers, we have always looked forward to stays here. Upon arrival it was obvious by the empty parking lot that we were one of few guests here for a mid-week stay. Upon we check-in were greeted by a young girl that didn't seem very knowledgable. She then told us that she would check and see if our room was ready. We waited which seemed to be a long while in the lobby waiting for a response from housekeping. We couldn't believe that our room was not ready late in the afternoon with little to no other guests staying there. We asked about the food coupon that was advertised on the website when we booked months earlier. She just looked at us with a dazed stare like she didn't know what we were talking about. We forgot about it and wanted into our room after the long drive. We eventually got our key to room number 305 and headed up. Upon exiting the elevator we witnessed hallway walls and doors that were banged up, scraped up with filthy worn out carpeting. We entered our large uninviting room and to see a bed, two tiny nightstands, (only one with a tiny lamp) a chair with ottoman, desk/table with what looked to be a unpadded plastic chair from outside and a small dresser accompanied by a 27" tube TV straight out of the 90's (all of the rooms we stayed in before had flatscreens). There was SO much bare and empty wall space due to only two very small pictures hanging on the walls. My wife wanted to sit in the the only decent chair in the room to read. This proved to be impossible due to the lack of lighting in the lampless dark corner of the room. The wind was blowing a bit and the poorly insulated sliding door provided a strong cold draft along with a wind driven banging screen. We had to close the dirty drapes to stay warm (that I had to rehang on the hooks due to it not being secured) and that took away the view of the London Bridge holiday lights. I adjusted the heat at the dirty old thermostat to find the little door fell off in my hand. It was either too hot or too cold with no in between. We roasted in the room and had to keep the blankets at the foot of the bed. This proved to be a good idea as when we made the bed the next morning, we noticed a dark red spot on the blankets that looked to be dried blood - GROSS! Went down for morning coffee and found two empty coffee makers (one of them not even turned on) with no coffee creamers for my wife. We had to drive to McDonalds for coffee. Upon check out, there was a different woman at the desk and I mentioned some of the issues with the room. She offered for us to speak with manager but we opted to contact her by phone so we could get out of there. Overall, a very dissapointing stay in a room that seemed reserved for the "spring breakers". We do understand that the rooms will damaged when college kids stay & party here. We don't understand why the place can't get repaired in the meantime for the rest of us. To give them a little credit, they were repainting the second floor hallway (just in time for March 2013 spring break). Seems like too little, too late. Guess that it is all about the money. Too bad.

Room Tip: Request to see your room BEFORE you check-in.
