Stayed in the Bunny Ears room for 5 nights in March. This is a boutique hotel that is a handful of rooms above a retail complex. There is a gift shop, Tshirt shop, ice cream shop and restaurant/bar downstairs. Plenty of parking including an underground garage -- useful in hot summers. Despite the retail location I found the room to be very quiet. The room was spacious with a kitchenette which is convenient since there is no breakfast provided. It was spotlessly clean. The furnishings were updated with a Western flair. There is a very busy Mexican restaurant next door although we didn't get to try it. Nice to be able to walk to all the interesting shops and restaurants in Cave Creek. The only thing is checkin is through the gift shop so you need to somehow work around their hours. Would happily stay here again.

We recently stayed at the Prickly Pear for 10 nights while visiting family nearby. The room was comfortable and the kitchenette was stocked with everything that we needed. The room was quiet and the air conditioning worked well. The added bonus of a large balcony was a plus!

Book your room now! This place is spectacular! From the time we checked in to the time we left, our stay was nothing but superb. Friendly office/store staff made us feel welcome from the beginning. Then you walk into the room and....WOW! Every detail is amazing. I can't say enough about the quality of workmanship that went into these rooms. We stayed in the Bunny Ears room which also had a huge deck/patio looking toward the mountains. The room was super quiet (and we were there during Memorial Day & rodeo weekend - very busy! We can't wait to stay again next year! Kudos to the designers and owners of this beautiful treasure in Cave Creek, AZ!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Prickly Pear Inn. The Indian Fig room was clean and spacious with cute southwestern accents. The staff was friendly and efficient. Tacos from Stumblina's hit the spot after a long drive. The Saguaros were in bloom, an added bonus on a local hike.🌵🌼

My husband and I stayed in the Pancake Room at this inn recently. We loved the location, the decor and the high end amenities. Each evening, we sat on our balcony with our wine and enjoyed the sunset and then (because we were carless) we walked to a close by restaurant for dinner, drinks or ice cream. We both said if we have to ever go into an assistant living arrangement, we want it to be exactly like our room. The kitchenette was top drawer and more than adequate for a long term stay if necessary. If you have an occasion to visit Cave Creek, I think you should book it ASAP.
