Great service, superb rooms, adjacent to a wonderful casino and restaurants (buffet), quiet and clean rooms, very comfy beds, and an overall GREAT mini-vacation. A lot of casino's are getting away from buffet dining, but this one has a great lunch and dinner at good prices. The hotel has great coffee as well in the morning. You will really enjoy your stay at this Best Western Hotel.

On the way to visit my parents in rural AZ and needed a stop to sleep. This hotel was a great way station. Clean, comfortable, and very affordable. They gave a suite to better accomadate my family of five. Would definitely stay here again if in the area

The electricity frequently goes out for several hours on the entire reservation where the hotel is located. The hotel never loses electricity. My family stayed at the hotel to avoid a cold night on the reservation with no heat or electricity at home. It was a good experience. Breakfast is great! It is in the casino. Many Best Western's have a self serve breakfast that is not conducive for a diabetic. We enjoyed the breakfast at Apache Gold casino.

Staff is friendly and service is reasonable although slow at times. Condition of accommodation is below average for a Best Western. Doors would not close properly, other guest smoked in no-smoking room below us and we had to request moving. Food was good although just off the Casino it was subject to smoke.

We stayed at Apache Gold last year, and are planning to return again this year. I'm very thankful they have friendlier staff and it sounds like they've done some renovations. Last year we found the elevators dirty and stinky, and the front desk staff not very friendly. Hoping that has improved. One other concern we had was that the parking lot was not well let and we were a bit concerned about security. Does anyone know if they've stepped up security at this location, or what type of security they have? How have the rooms been upgrades? After reading some of the other reviews, not sure if we should be staying here. Any information from recent visitors would be helpful. Thank you kindly.

This casino/hotel and golf course has changed by 100 percent. Their attitude and quality of helpfulness has really improved over the last couple of years. The beds were really comfortable. The golf course is as fun and challenging as before but better maintained. The staff was great. Slot machines still don't like me.

Visiting our new grandson and family in Globe, we were pleased to find after sundown this Best Western Hotel which was better than we expected and much more reasonable than we anticipated. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Cool room, good clean bed, well appointed bathroom and WiFi was great. It just fit our needs completely. We will be back!
