“Great place away from the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Needed a place for one night after 7 days at a condo. Great please away from the city. View of the mountains was awesome. Has dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the good and service were great. Enjoyed the pool as well. We would stay again. I agree with other reviews that the casino is very smokey they need better ventilation.

Ft. McDowell has nothing to offer, unless you are going to golf there! The casino is very dated. You need to go into Fountain Hills restaurants, so there's really nothing there. The rooms are just average, and the bathrooms are not updated. The pool area is nice, if you want enjoy the sunshine.

I stayed here one night. The hotel was very clean and modern and so was my room. Nice pool area. Beautiful lobby. The hotel stands alone. It is not connected to the casino or the restaurant. It would of been perfect if the casino was connected to the hotel. I like to gamble and walked back to my room late and felt kinda unsafe it was really dark. The location is kinda far but beautiful.

Room Tip: The hotel is not connected to the casino.

Very nice location minutes from mountains, shopping in Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, or Mesa. Stayed for 4 nights during baseball spring training. Enjoyed the pool area daily, perfect water temp and easy to get a chair. Wait staff very friendly and hard working to get you what you would like. Beers 4.50 dom, 5 imp.
Live musicians across from lobby by restaurant was nice and at a perfect volume level. Counter staff in lobby were very pleasant. Plenty of parking, and accessible. Great place to call home base while visiting area. OH A MUST!!!! Friday Night Franks! Fort McDowell Adventures! When you get there, grab a Fountain Hills pamphlet, or look online! What a great way to spend a Friday night! For family..or A fun date night, or even a little wild side! We had our 2 daughters 9 and 13, and they had a great time! (I was able to judge a salsa competition!)

Room Tip: Be sure to sit on bed and maybe wiggle around a bit.. ours both were a little noisy when you rolled...

This hotel is wonderful - the staff is very friendly and helpful - The hotel is very clean and well kept. The pool area is very nice and even has a salt water pool - I cannot think of one thing that they could improve on.

I used to really like this hotel, but my last experience was not great. They previously had sleep number beds but now have replaced most of them with regular beds while still keeping the same foundation. Had a room with 2 doubles and both beds were very noisy...creaking whenever you moved. Upgraded to a corner room which was not worth the upgrade. The front desk staff have consistently been pretty clueless and slow. Overall I would stay there again when they have price specials but will not pay over $100/night for what is really a pretty average hotel that bills itself as a resort.. Unless you like the casino for nightlife, you are pretty far away from anything else....30 minutes to Scottsdale. The pool is lovely for both singles and families.

Room Tip: Request pool view on main floor if you like a patio. A very few rooms have balconies which are nice...

My husband and I found ourselves at this hotel in the, what seemed to be in the middle of the dessert. We thought we were going to be downtown as we were in Scottsdale for the Barrett Jackson car auction and wanted to be close to the show. I made the reservation and majorly screwed up as the reservation indicated no cancellation or refunds. CARLA MEDINA-REEVES AND CHRIS WEAVER went over and above to help us get where we needed to be. They did not charge us, they looked for a hotel for us and even gave us free shuttle to where we needed to be. The hotel was BEAUTIFUL!!! I know that when i go back for rest, relaxation and fun this is where I need to go. I'm looking forward to actually staying there, maybe there are really no accidents...probably would have never knew the place was there and how beautiful it really is.
