“Excellent Service and Value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2009

Staff exceptionally pleasant and attentive. Rooms well appointed, clean and fresh. Restaurant next door serves excellent Mexican food again with good service. The only downer was the early morning (5am) delivery truck which couldnt have been noisier if hed tried, so ear plugs might help or ask for room at the back of hotel.
Brakfast was of the Continental type with added hot choices of scrambled egg and sausages.

This is a very nice Best Western - we stayed one night while driving from Gallup to Tucson.

We booked a king room – it had a microwave, refrigerator and great Internet access, and everything was clean. Although the hotel has external corridors, our room was away from the highway and quiet.

The front office staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable about places to eat nearby. The breakfast was good and more than adequate for our needs. We had dinner at Licano’s Mexican right next door, which had good food and traditional décor. The Native New Yorker was also recommended – next to Licano’s.

  • Liked — Convenient location on drive to Tucson
  • Disliked — External corridors

I travel extensively on business so am accustomed to the ammenities of 4 and 5 star downtown hotels. Those hotels need not worry about competition from The Paint Pony (think Formica and Melmac dishes). That said, the rooms are clean, large, and as advertised except that the fireplace shown on our confirmation was not available. It's June so not a big deal but be sure to call the hotel and confirm if you really want/
need the FP.

I've stayed at several Best Western's and this so far is my favorite hotel of all. My other half and I booked the jacuzzi suite. When we arrived I was a little worried because the hotel didn't look very impressive from the outside, but the moment we stepped into the lobby I was impressed. Will at the front desk was immensely helpful and very enjoyable to talk to.

The room itself is gorgeous! I've decided that if I am ever able to build my own home, I will steal the design of this room.

The jacuzzi was large enough to fit two people, and very relaxing, the fireplace was also wonderful.

The housekeeping at this location was immaculate, we always had fresh towels and clean sheets.

Over all I loved this hotel, it was fantastic.

  • Liked — You're asking me to decide? I can't! Everything!
  • Disliked — Showlow isn't very exciting, but it's not like the hotel can help that.

I had a brief, but nice stay at this hotel. It's not fancy, but it was clean and quiet with a continental breakfast. This hotel is a good value, and I'd stay here again.

There are no special amenaties, but it is on the main drag through Show Low.

The outside of the hotel doesn't look like much, in fact, we were a little afraid to stay there at first. However, the room was clean and the the free breakfast was very good, to my surprise. The biggest down fall of our stay was the fact that is was a non-smoking room and it smelled of cigarette smoke and the outside appearance of the hotel was not up to par.

  • Liked — Clean Room
  • Disliked — Smell of smoke in my non-smoking room
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay a little further up the road in Pinetop. Much nicer town.

I was a little disappointed in this hotel - the room was large but had a musty smell to it; one of the lights did not work; the sheets did not fit the bed so popped off during the night; there was no pool; nice big TV but no movies; the light and exhaust were on the same switch so you had to listen to the loud exhaust everytime you turned the light on - the best part of the stay was the hot breakfast - eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy; fruit; waffles, cereal, juice, etc. There is a sweet woman who is taking this job very seriously and is full-time attending to the set up and mainenance of this buffet. She did an excellent job.
