We stayed at this hotel for one night only on 7/19 while on a 3 week vacation trip out west. We were on our way to Tombstone, AZ for the OK Corral reenactment. The hotel was a pleasant oasis after a long day of driving thru Apace National Forest.

I don't even consider staying at other hotels / motels when traveling to Safford on business. I really like the Desert Inn. Marci and Michelle are always bubbly and smiling. They will try to honor requests for certain rooms if at all possible. Very good breakfast but wish they would add English muffins. A lounge would be nice after a... More

I did price comparison. This hotel was in line cost wise with newer hotels, took this one because of special offer from Best Wester. This hotel just to close to main road so road noise was an issue for me, swimming pool in the middle of the parking lot so no privacy.

We almost always look for a Best Western on our cross country road trips, since we know they accept dogs. This was a clean, comfortable, easy overnight stop. The breakfast was very good. I could do without the TV on in the breakfast room but I know that's a lost cause.

Nice hotel, great breakfast with eggs and bacon, excellent staff at check in was very helpful with finding my rewards number and suggesting restaurants. The hotel room was clean and the grounds weren't bad either - just a couple of cigarette butts around - not at all like so many other hotels. Had nice landscaping. Wish they'd get king size... More

We had a similar experience at checkout. The beds are comfortable, the room was clean and the property was neat and well-maintained. The hotel is on the main drag, but it was... More

I found the rooms to be clean, comfortable, affordable and will return again. It has a small fridge and microwave. The ice machine has clean ice and the beds were comfortable. I travel with my own pillow because i have particular tastes but their pillows were comfy too. Plenty of outlets for use, close to what I needed. Staff friendly... More
