“Drug Infested an Cheap! Dangerous”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I stayed at this motel about a month ago and it was the worse run down motel imaginable. I was afraid to step out of the room because of the shady looking characters that were surrounding the neighboring suites. This montel is very sleezy an disgusting. After being given a room myself an my husband noticed people were hanging out on the stairs an smoking in front of the rooms.

The room did not have toliet paper or towel much less any appliances. I went over to the front desk to ask for toliet paper as of course not even the telephone was operating. Once given the supplies the towel looked dingy an very used an I saw a woman topless walkign out of a room an up the stairs towards another room. I was absoultely disgusted prostitutes an drug addicts is all you will find here.

DON'T waste your time or money here!!!! The last hour before my check out time while I gathered all of my belongings police had raided a room about 6ft from mine and it was the most nerve racking experience of my life. I was panicked and could not wait to exist this property. I wasnt sure what to expect but looking at uniformed officers with baradade sheilds is quite literally not the trip Id planned for. I sincerely hope this helps anyone at all save them from the experience I had.

Room Tip: The wildomere is much better with quality, saftey and comfort.

I found myself in Mesa late one night without a booking and found this place on google maps. The other motels in the area were full so I thought I'd give it a go. The place looked dodge from the start but it was late and I'd been driving for 6 hours so I took a room. The reception girl took me to the room at the far end of the complex where there were loads of shifty looking blokes knocking about staring at us as we took our bags to our room.

It took less than 30 seconds to realise that no sane person would stay in a motel like this. The room was a mess and stank to high heaven.

I don't like giving bad reviews but felt it my duty. Unless you've been kicked out of your home and are a step away from homelessness don't stay here. Seriously, don't stay here. Of course if you have a soft spot for crystal meth and "professional" ladies and no possessions of worth then you might love it.

Room Tip: You'd be better off sleeping in your car

We had been staying at a very nice resort in Oak Creek Village but the weather report forecast snow and we chose to leave the night before to ensure that we could make our flight from Phoenix the next day. We searched for hotels near the airport but they were all booked. We found the Colonade on Booking.com and made the reservation. When we arrived after 10pm. tired from rushing to make it to Mesa, we were first directed to a "condo" about a mile away. It was filthy and totally unsuitable so we returned and the clerk apologized and gave us #205. It was a small smelly room with a bare kitchenette and no utensils or dishes. One of the night clerks did make an attempt to find some dishes and bring extra towels and he did find a plug for the bathtub. He was courteous and polite but we would never come here again.Then I found out that Booking,com was offering the same room online for $14 less. We were desperate but this is a terrible place with missing light bulbs, threadbare towels, no hangers in the flimsy closet and peeling laminate off the cheap particle board bed frame. No doubt years from now this will be good for a laugh, but we hardly feel that way tonight. Booking.com did not have any reviews available when I booked this place, but I see several now that would have warned us what to expect.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a good room.
