This was our 4th trip to Scottsdale and 1st stay at the Homewood Suites.
We enjoyed the spacious suite-stayed on the 3rd floor with a view of the mountains.
I kept comparing this property to my previous stay at the Homewood Suites( La Quinta, California) and found this property a bit disappointing.
1. Breakfasts/ light supper- not as welcoming or as nice as the other Homewood Suites so I missed the homemade steel cut oatmeal at breakfast with the fresh walnuts and California raisins for topping and settled for the instant instead. Egg products tasted too manufactured. Missed the very welcoming kitchen staff too. Light suppers-disappointing- staff not welcoming. We arrived 30 minutes before the end of supper 1st night- and were told lasagna was gone, stuffed noodles served instead-dry with no tomato sauce. When I asked if there was sauce was told no there is none-use shredded cheese instead. I used a small tear open package of taco sauce instead. Wondered why there was not a can of tomato sauce on hand for such occurrences and no apologies by staff- more like it was my problem not their problem.
2nd night- we weren't advised till that day- supper cancelled due to Christmas day. 3rd night- hotdogs and beans. Missed the chicken dishes served at the other Homewood.
2. Pool area-ok for what it was but in Scottsdale there are resorts just blocks away with wonderful pool areas and comparable prices so we kept asking myself why we were staying at the homewood to sit around a tiny pool built in the parking area and eat dry noodles and cancelled meals when we could move to a resort with a beautiful pool area for the same money.
We moved hotels after the first 3 nights on the insistence of my teenager and partner both bored with pool and meals and enjoyed the next 7 days at a resort, enjoying the pool area and our suppers out.
