“Nice and CLEAN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

After almost eight years of staying up the road at the Best Western Pine Top, I never wanted to check this place out, but after a sad change in ownership, resulting in the huge decline of the property, I had to make a change. I work in Show Low at least two days a month and after driving clear down to Payson to find a hotel that I knew was clean, I decided to give the Paint Pony a shot. This hotel is central to Show Low, the staff is great and the room was fantastic! I am so happy to find something in a great price range and get back to the confident feeling that I used to have at the other place (before they quit taking care of it as well as they did under the previous owners), it is nice to not worry about bringing any tiny unwanted creepy-crawlys home with me!

We decided to leave Las Vegas & head for the tall pines in Arizona, where the average August/September temperatures are in the 60's w/ a thunderstorm almost every evening. Show Low, Arizona, was our destination. We Googled "hotels/motels in Show Low, AZ". After perusing & reading numerous reviews we decided on the Best Western Paint Pony Lodge. Mostly because they were pet friendly. The pictures of the Paint Pony do not do it justice. We had 2 adjoining rooms for 5 nights & I just can't say enough nice things about this place. The staff went out of their way to assist us in whatever we needed. The bed linens were first class. The rooms were huge & spotless. There were 2 choices of pillow softness/hardness to choose from & frankly, both of the choices were comfy. The shower head had great water pressure & a nice roomy shower. There was an awesome little forest right next door to the hotel which our 2 little Bichon's just loved. Both would do their business & come running right back to me. The complimentary a.m. breakfast went over & above anything we have seen in all of our years of travel. The staff helped us in suggesting places we would enjoy; casino's, golf courses that were fabulous, restaurants w/ the greatest prime rib we have every eaten & historical steak houses w/ ambiance, cocktails & great food. One afternoon I stayed in for a nap & one of the maintenance men actually went to the vending machines for me & got me a diet soda & even brought back ice. What a nice guy!!!. We sincerely want to thank the staff & management @ Best Western Paint Pony Lodge for all they did to help make our stay the huge success it was & we all strongly recommend it to all.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back seemed to be void of traffic as opposed to the busyness of the front office &a...

I traveled to Show Low every week for my job. I had a choice of staying anywhere in the area. I always chose the Paint Pony Lodge. The staff was always extremely helpful, welcoming and friendly. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained. After over 5 years of staying here, I always felt like it was home away from home. The variety of breakfast foods were plentiful and fresh. The breakfast hostess always greeted me. She made sure all items were filled. She made eating in the hotel breakfast environment warm and pleasant. I highly recommend you consider staying here on your next trip to the area.

What a great place to stay up in the pines of Show Low. Get a nice cozy fireplace room for those cool nites. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. You sure can enjoy those chocolate chip cookies in the afternoons and a free hot breakfast in the a.m. Centrally located close to the casino and Pinetop-Lakeside.

Room Tip: The king fireplace room is very roomy and comfy.

Stayed here for two nights during the very busy Run to the Pines car show weekend, Sept. 23-25, 2011 in room #405. Entire back 2-story building is non-smoking and very quiet. Larger room with microwave, refrigerator, table and chairs and convenient desk work space (free Internet too). Welcoming staff invited us to ice cream in the lobby at 7:00 p.m. (summer weekends), and breakfast was very satisfying with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy or jelly, hot and cold cereals, fruit, waffles, muffins and more along with juice, coffee, milk, cocoa or tea. Staff said they may have soup available during winter weekend evenings.

Room Tip: Rooms in rear building are all non-smoking and free of traffic noise.

Stayed for only one night on a last minute get-away. Rate was very reasonable at $70 with AAA discount for a Saturday night. Room was very clean and fairly large. Towels in new thick fluffy condition. No traffic heard from hwy 260 in front of motel. The breakfast is one of the best we have encountered. Numerous hot items including eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy. Mexican rest. next door is awesome. Hotel is pet friendly. Staff was pleasant. Great location for motorcycle rides in the north country. Great value. Would return with no hesitation.

We rolled into this motel, tired after a trying day of motorcycle riding. The winds were howling and the temps dropping rapidly, so when we arrived here, it was welcomed. The motel was not only amazingly reasonable, but spotlessly clean with wonderful beds and bedding. The morning breakfast was nothing short of amazing for the usual motel fare and the Mexican restaurant right next door was also pretty good for dinner.
Staff was friendly and had good safe motorcycle parking. I'd definitely stay here again!
