“Beautiful location and property, too bad the room was stinky”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stayed one night in an effecieny unit. This is a beautiful location in the pines, convenient to downtown Prescott. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable and all appeared clean. However, there was a terrible musty smell of mildew or mold that just wouldn't go away. Be aware that if you stay in an effeciency you have to walk up 10 steps or 6 steps to get to the room, not to good for someone who has problems walking up stairs. You also have to walk up the steps to get to the swimming pool. The breakfast was not very good. The pastries were cold, like they just came out of the fridge. The staff was neither rude or friendly. Because of the smell I can't give this property a very high rating and would not recommend it to anyone. Too bad, this is a beautiful location and nice looking hotel.

Stayed one night, rather old and everything is dated. Tacks in halls where picture must of been hanging at one time. Time warp back to the 1950's except for TV nice LG flat screen TV. One entered the room from a common outside hallway. No screen on bathroom window so bugs could fly in. Bed comfortable but again everything was just so old. We would not stay there again. This was a time we just did not want to spend too much money so we settled. But nice location out of town and quiet. Charged us $1.50 for use of safe when I pointed out we did not use safe we were given a refund.

Room Tip: Small sign on road is set back from street so as you are traveling down road one does not see the si...

SUMMARY: If you want to stay at a dirty hotel, with a terrible staff and especially rude owner (David) - go for it. But if you are looking for clean rooms, nice, friendly staff, and a wonderful getaway, go somewhere else.

DETAILS: This place is a scam. They try to tell you your credit card declines and then takes cash deposits without giving a receipt. They tell you they do not give receipts for your cash payment. Then, once you get them to finally say they will give a receipt for the cash, they hand write it on your bill. To top it off, when I gave them a second credit card, they tell me that card is declined too. Keeping your cash you paid them and pushing me out the door because they don't have time to deal with me. When I go back to my room, I look on my credit card's website and they ran the charge... it was not declined. They are trying to scam someone, most likely the corporation by not documenting I paid cash.

UPDATE: I called the Choice Hotels Corporation and this is not common practice, they assured me that it is not the practice of their corporation to take cash and refuse to give receipts. Something was going on with this owner, and I hope they catch him in fraud and take the hotel away from him. Very disappointing.

Room Tip: Don't go! That's the only tip I can tell you.

Stayed here twice, as a solo traveler. Found the owner on site, both times, a good sign.
Both stays, nice clean, quiet rooms with nice views, of the pines. Prices were very reasonable.
Only a few miles from downtown, the location provided a pleasant respite in the evenings.
Breakfast area, with great view, was somewhat cramped and food was standard. Understand,
a scheduled remodel will remedy this. For dinner, a short walk to Papas Italian Restaraunt,
is perfect. Good food, great service, and a nice patio, surrounded by pine trees.
The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Even suggesting a great scenic side trip to Bagdad,
a copper mining town. Bagdad Diner, cheesburger time! Will be back here, for sure, on
my next Prescott visit. Great place to visit for a couple of days.

Room Tip: Personal preferance, 2nd floor. Kichenetts,available. And don't forget courteous communication...

We booked through Hotwire and they have this Comfort Inn listed as a 2.5 star, in my opinion it is a 1.5 star facility. As we were pulling through the parking lot to our room we saw a huge mountain of trash, it must have been quite some time since the last trash pick up. The beds were clean, but the carpets were disgusting, really need to be updated. My mother-in-law dropped something which rolled under the bed, she proceeded to get it and found that wasn't the only item there, things from long ago... My husband went to get some ice and encountered some cockroaches. We decided we really didn't need ice. The shower would not drain properly either. On the bright side, I believe the sheets were clean...

My husband and I stayed here one night while traveling through Prescott. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient. She provided us with a map of the area and pointed out places that would be lovely for viewing that evening's sunset and also recommended a delicious Italian restaurant close by. The room was clean and comfortable, but average. No complaints because the price was reasonable. Breakfast was fine with waffles, toast, pastries, coffee, juice, fruit, etc. The location was very quiet but was a bit of a drive outside of the city. We would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are a little bit shabby, but okay for a budget hotel. The location is okay, with nice views of the pine trees, but not walking distance from city centre. Breakfast was acceptable but they don't have enough seating for the restaurant guests.
