The only other Homewood I've stayed in was in Seattle, which was quite good.
This hotel is disgusting. On check-in, I requested a quiet room. I was specific about the need for it. The receptionist placed me in a bottom floor room with occupants on all other sides - because it was easier for housekeeping. The doors slam like there's a high wind on them. You hear every flush of every toilet, every whisper in other rooms.
Everything in the rooms looks like it is from a thrift store. There are stains and dirt on the furniture, tears in the sofa in the second room assigned.
The bedsheets are queen sheets on king beds. You are literally short sheeted here. The beds are covered with old duvets that are unconscionable.
The rooms stink of disinfectant.
The air conditioners have no controls other than temperature - the air, in both rooms I have been in, blasts you. You can adjust the vent, but not nearly enough for it to make any difference.
This is a disgraceful hotel. As a full-time traveler, I stay in many hotels and motels. Few are memorable, most are passable. This one literally stinks.
Avoid this Homewood at all costs. You will regret staying here.
A dive. So much for ever booking a Homewood again.

This is a long stay hotel. There are people here staying only for a few days but there also people living here. Interestingly they provide a "dinner" every Monday through Thursday which may be hot dogs and beans or pasta and sauce with salad and domestic beer on tap and some wine. The little cans of various sodas also. Breakfast is every day. There is fresh fruit and when I was there fresh berries every morning. The pool is a disgrace and looks like one you'd find in a fun down neighborhood and almost ALL of the outdoor furniture is broken. It molded plastic. The shuttle is a nice perk as long as you don't have to go more than a couple miles and don't mind waiting for them to return if they have to go back to the hotel while you are where you're at for the moment. I think it's definitely worth renting your own car. The location is a little seedy (for Scottsdale) and the road noise is crazy loud. It's a decent place for a traveler who is not looking for anything "nice". Oh yeah the best thing about this place is that each room has a full mini kitchen. Full size fridge, 2 burner stove and convection/ microwave oven. Very cramped in that area but nice to have.
Stayed at the Scottsdale Homewood because I couldn't get into the Biltmore Homewood. It was okay. There were a number of small issues which I didn't feel were worth complaining about but taken together left me with with a rather average experience. Good value though, especially if you take advantage of the breakfast and manager's reception.
NOT your run of the mill Homewood Suites by Hilton. "the People" make this hotel.
Starting "at the Top" Jessica Torres does an incredible job as GM.
The Front Desk Staff of Mele, Joy, Alberto and Jessica W, are outstanding! The kitchen staff (incredible); Jessica, Delia and Nayelli--cook meals that always exceed expectations and are a pleasure to enjoy breakfast or dinner. So courteous and kind. The maintenance and shuttle drivers are fantastic; Jay, Don and Terry.
I've likely missed the housekeeping and others, but needless to staty; STAY HERE when in Scottsdale!!! You will NOt regret the decision!
The staff is one of the most hospitable and friendly, caring and remarkable I have met.
Good location, great staff, and quite. This is a great place to stay it you have a car and have business in Scottsdale or eastern Arizona. I traveled with a group which had expensive accomidations at a nearby resort. I stay at Homewood for less $$ and free breakfast.
