The first time we drove by this motel we missed it completely. Set on a very busy road between an exotic car dealership and a huge pink mall you can't really see anything from the road except a fairly small sign. We knew from the map we were close so we stopped and asked for directions and a couple of u turns and we were there! When we parked the car we were quite uncertain this was the place for us as the traffic was noisy and it backed onto a massage parlour! However as we entered the gate into the property our feelings changed. The motel must have been there for a long time because the trees and palm trees that adorn the area around the pool are very mature and provide lovely shade. The pool was very nice and the aviary with the song birds provide a nice sound to wake up to in the morning. Our room was 108 right at the pool gate and while quite ordinary as motel rooms go it was very clean and I don't know what mattresses they have but we want one! We have never slept as well as we did in that room. We did have a knock on the door at 2AM our first night from a pizza delivery guy but that was the only glitch. The motel is just a block from Scottsdale Road which gets you to the old town in about 5 minutes in the car to the left and to the right will get you to Mesa or Tempe in about 20. It is also about 20 minutes from Phoenix airport. 15 minutes will get you to the Talking Stick casino and there are Frys grocery stores everywhere. The big windows in the room do not open but there is a wooden piece above the door that does so we left that open all day and at night we put on the ceiling fan so it was great. We will definitely stay there again as it was close to everything, the best sleep we have ever had, and floating in the pool listening to the birds singing surrounded by green grass and big trees and palm trees really made it seem like a desert oasis!
