“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed May 24, 2005

The three posts before mine very accurately reflect my impression of the Caleo (formerly the Sunburst). We had a great rate (only $109) and enjoyed ourselves, but did find things to point out about the place before you stay there. The hotel is pretty and fairly clean, with a very nice pool area, but there was not much more to it other than the pool. They call themselves a resort, but it seems to fall somewhere between an average hotel and a resort, with not a great deal of amenities. About the facilities, our room, although called a courtyard view room, was at the end of the building overlooking the parking lot. The room, while nice, looked nothing like those in their website photos (see attached pics). Reviews below are accurate about musty smell in the hallway, dark lighting in the room, small bathroom, with shallow sink outside bathroom, etc. The staff was alright, except for the front desk attendant who appeared peeved that we wanted to write down her directions to the airport. Again, we enjoyed our stay and it was an above average hotel compared with many others, but it did not come close to many of the other true resorts in Scottsdale/Phoenix area. If you can find a good deal, and need a good deal, this may be a good bet (we are typically budget travelers ourselves), but if you can afford something more, or like us, can't but want to splurge anyway, you may want to look at other resorts in the area.
