“Pack Earplugs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

The campground was in a lovely setting but we used Mapquest to guide us there but ended up on military side of park; follow signs instead of online directions. There was entertainment at the walking distance amphitheater, and an extreme adventure course with suspension bridges, ziplines etc. near by. We were there for Beerfest and expected it to be a "party" atmosphere but by 3 AM the second night we were ready to pack up and leave. There was no camp manager to be found and one extremely loud, obnoxious group of campers made sleep impossible. The port a johns were filled and smelly by evening Saturday. Next Beerfest I will stay in a Flagstaff hotel and take a cab!

Room Tip: Visit the campground and select a campsite before booking, and check the amphitheater for possible e...

*This review is for the Hotel*

First of all, I'll start out on a
positive note - all the front desk staff were polite and courteous, if there were a spot to give them only them stars, I'd give them 5.

The main reception room was nice, had rustic decorations, and a decently stocked amenity/gift shop area... Our hotel room however was a different story. It had a strange stifling musty odor. At first we assumed it was because the fan had not been turned on. We turned on the fan and left to explore the area for a couple hours.... When we returned, it had not gotten better at all. Within an hour of being in the room, both our sinuses were completely clogged. The more time we spent in the room, the dirtier it felt. Upon showering, we realized that mold was growing on the bottom of the shower curtain, and there were dirty handprints all over it. The ventilation fan also did absolutely nothing for the steam in the bathroom either. And why the coffee pot was actually located IN the bathroom, I have no idea (is this even legal?). Oh and there was hair in the freezer portion of the mini fridge (eww)... After an un-restful nights sleep on the old mattress and hard pillows (that appeared to have stained pillow cases which I covered up with t-shirts), we both woke up with puffy swollen irritated eyes, severe sinus congestion that extended to our ears, and swollen submandibular lymph nodes. We turned in our keys, reported that we suspected mold to be somewhere in the room, and left..... We could breathe noticeably better as soon as leaving the room. Within an hour of leaving, all of our symptoms were gone (with the exception of still being tired from the lack of sleep that we got).

I wish we had stayed elsewhere, and recommend others who are considering staying at this hotel to look into other accommodations.

My family and I have been going to Ft. Tudhill for over 40yrs and this will be my last stay. The issue is upkeep or the lack of it. We stayed in a small cabin with a full bed and a sofa bed and I use the term “bed” loosely. It was like being in a time capsule from 1984 the furnishings were the same and sadly for our teenage daughter the mattress on the sofa bed was probably older it was unusable and she slept on the couch. The maintenance was none existent with screw holes in the walls and large amounts of caulking keeping the shower from leaking the towels were like sand paper as if they were washed and placed on a rock to dry.

We had read some terrible reviews but our experience was very good. Nice wooded setting on the edge of Flagstaff. Very clean laundry facilities and restrooms. Because of hillside location, some sites were not very level and no sewer hook-ups were available. Some good recreational opportunities in the park and world class recreation in the surrounding area. This park was a GREAT value and we would definitely stay there again. One suggestion if the opportunity is available is to drive or walk thru the park to pick your site to get the one that best meets your needs.

Our 2 story cabin was great because it wasn't a hotel room BUT the bed was hard, the pillows and comforter old and the bathroom had mold on the walks and the linoleum was coming up, making it dangerous. The plus side was that my husband and I walked out the door and had an hour hike/walk in the woods without seeing a soul. The leaves were changing and it was beautiful. No driving, no cars and no traffic. We would stay again for the location but next time bring pillows and a mattress topper.

We reserved the pet-friendly cabin to take my kids "camping" for the weekend. When we checked in, we learned that there was a hip-hop concert scheduled to run late into the evening over the next two nights literally 500' from our cabin. Additionally, our cabin had an almost overpowering stench of urine... all of which caused us to immediately find another place that didn't include a constant barrage of F-bombs via loudspeaker. To management's credit, they were understanding and allowed us to cancel our reservation at no charge. I hesitate to trash Ft Tuthill based on one 30-minute experience as the location was convenient to many activities and fairly scenic, but I have never before felt the need to immediately check my family out of a place right after we arrived like I did here.

Room Tip: Check out the Pepsi Amphitheater at Ft Tuthill Park schedule before making reservations.

- We have stayed at Fort Tuthill many, many times and love it here but this the first time we rented a cabin. The property is old and out of date but has always been clean and the people (staff and other guests) are very friendly. The staff and other guests are still friendly but the cabin we rented was a DUMP. Not worth $95 a night.
- Checking in on a Sunday we had to wait for a cabin to become available from housekeeping which was fine, we went into Flag for dinner and came back. Cabin was NOT clean, there were crumbs on the kitchen floor and worst of all, a used bar of soap in the shower stall - with hair on it! GROSS! Told the girl at the front desk and asked for another cabin but none available- not her fault, she is just the night clerk.
- The pictures on their website must be from 10 years ago, everything needs a coat of paint. Patio railing broken and a hazard, lawsuit waiting to happen. Out of 4 kitchen chairs, only 2 were usable. Kitchen table slanted & broken. Stains on the couch and bedspread.
- ALSO, As part of check out procedure you are required to take out your trash AND wash all dishes so for almost $100 per night it's not a good value.
- Once we rented a multi-family a-Frame when we had several children along and usually we rent a room in the hotel section. If this is any indication of how run down they are letting the property get, there are plenty of other places to stay in Flagstaff where you can get your money's worth and not have a dirty shower with hairy soap in the soap dish.

Room Tip: A-frames and hotel "rooms" are inhabitable.
