I stayed at SPS for a little over 3 months(Feb., March and half of April) of 2010. The inconviences were many and the noise level was very loud. During March and April, the temperature was at times 80 degrees and no air Conditioner was on. Why? They only have a one system , whereas during the winter months and spring months the A/C is cut off and the only thing that works is the heat. At times, I would wake up to take a shower in icy water--No hot water. This went on continually in the last month I stayed there. The staff would always put the problem on city workers or anyone, except the Hotel fault.
The owner doesn't take responsibility in anything that happens to vehicles, bikes, or slippery sidewalks.
Yes, they do have a small amount of not so good resturants where you can go to eat free at during different days. Examples of this is: hamburger and fries on Saturday, an appertizer on another day, and so. You do get free golf and bowling on a daily basis but you must make sure to get the tickets from the office.
A gym is provided for you off site at LAFitness, but you must make sure you only have the pass for a couple of hours during the day or you will be fined.
Parking is gated, but there is a charge for a remote to get in, and sometimes you may not be able to get out because the gate gets jammed.
The rooms are very small and yes they are furnished with very cheap furniture.The clothe furniture is old and very used and the cheap leather is flattened, not comfortable and sticks to you, if you happen to have on shorts.
The cost of what you pay on amonthly basis, things should be better. As for the people you find there, the ones who stays forever(the residents) are loud, drunk and have a big disregard to others.
The SPS is not in the best part of Scottsdale, so please don't be fooled by their ad.
If you decide to stay, have your mail forwarded somewhere else, because the staff is about the nosiet and unprofessional I have ever seen.
There are many better places to stay at, instead of this place.

You can ask many of our residents who will tell you that our property is very quiet, this being that it is secluded away from many other properties and backs up to the Scottsdale Green Belt. Most of our residents are professionals visiting from out of town, relocating or staying to get out of the snow. We do not allow dogs so there is no barking to wake you, and we are conscious about loud noise and assist by letting residents know if they are disturbing the quiet enjoyment of others. The walls are very thick so the noise between apartment suites should be minimal.
Utilities are included with your stay at Scottsdale Park Suites. During the months of April it is usually not hot outside and the system of either hot or cold air garners few complaints from residents. All suites are outfitted with fans inside and windows to provide great ventilation.
We are happy you took advantage of our free meal options. We are constantly changing and improving what dining experiences you get for free when you stay with us. Our newest addition is a delicious "2 Putter" breakfast at the golf course where you golf for free, Continental Golf.
The LA Fitness passes are designed to be used by all residents. Fines are rarely given and almost never on the first violation. With proper warning and repeated disregard to the policies we have to fine residents in order to maintain the best community we can, for all residents to enjoy. Come stop by our office and ask residents who have lived here for years how often they have paid a fine, and it will likely be never.
Scottsdale Park Suites is located in South Scottsdale, just a few blocks East from Scottsdale Rd and a few miles East of the Papago Trails and Zoo. There is a shopping center with a grocery store just a few blocks away and a nice strip mall with tons of needed amenities like a nail salon, hair salon and fun sports bar. Our property is gated for additional security and people usually tell us how safe they feel here, yet the surrounding neighborhood is known for being a great place!
Thanks for your feedback, we appreciate the opportunity to address the concerns.
