The room was comfortable for a family of five. The staff at the front desk did a great job of recommending a restaurant and giving directions to places I needed to visit. The children enjoyed the pool and the hot tub.

This is an all-suite property. It is not the newest, but is well maintained and does not show any serious ageing issues.

The check-in clerk was efficient, but with a kind of an attitude at the begining. He then noticed and acknowledged I was a Platinum PC member, after which he became more friendly. All other front desk staff were very professional and friendly as well as staff serving drinks and snacks in the afternoon.

I was upgraded to a top-floor pool view double queen suite. The suite awaited me with the A/C on, which is usually not the case in hotels. With temperatures around 110 I really appreciated it. The suite was great, really spacious, comfortable, it even had a small balcony overlooking the pool in the backyard. The suite was clean, but the balcony could use a cleaning.

The hotel features "manager's happy hour" in the afternoons during the week, when they serve complimentary snacks, beer and wine. Once they are done with that, they serve cookies and milk. Both of these are a nice touch!

Went to use the pool on both of my nights. It is not very large, but was clean and nice as well.

Breakfast was the HIE standard, the breakfast room is large, so there are no problems with morning overcrowding.

The propery is minutes drive from Scottsdale Oldtown, very conveniently located. If you need a nice place in the area, I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are great as the backyard is really nice.

I loved this place guys; I will come back here. The not so good: some kids in the hall making noise (not the hotel's fault), cramped breakfast/manager's reception area. The good: plenty of parking, great location to Scottsdale sites (mall, fast food, freeway, ballpark, grocery stores),
huge room/suite with lcd tv w/good cable, fridge, micro, sofa with cup holder divider, cool room, decent bathroom, swimming pool outside,
and separate sink area. The really good: ultra fast internet (got great streaming and downloads), comfortable bed, great breakfast, near several Scottsdale area Casinos (Talking Stick and Casino Arizona), and fun manager's reception each day (beer, popcorn, nachos, chex mix, soft drinks), and great service. I loved it, please keep up the good work.

I've been traveling back and forth to Phoenix on a weekly basis for the last month........and I'll continue to do so, for the next few months.

I've stayed at the various Holiday Inns (in the area). I keep coming back to this one........
Its kind of becoming my home away from home.

The rooms are pretty spacious. Microwave and fridge included! There is a door that closes between the bedrooms and living area. Its kind of nice if you have guests. There are also two TVs in each room. Some of the rooms have balconies - another plus! For the most part, the hotel is pretty quiet.

The staff is pretty nice. They always have a smile on their faces when they see you!

Breakfast is continental. Standard fare of fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, eggs, cereal, etc. I love the pancake machine and the fresh baked cinnamon rolls. Free drinks for Happy hour with chips & nachos & popcorn.

Best of all - Fresh baked cookies at night with milk!!!!

Room Tip: 3rd floor!

I will keep this short. EXCELLENT SERVICE, PRICE ,AND LOCATION! Though I traveled with two other adults we decided on this location due to price and how close it was to Old Town. Walking 10 minutes and we were in the middle of Old Town. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfy and the list continues. Of course the 1 bed suites are the best.

Hotel: Great pool (take a ice chest to have cold drinks by the pool), great happy hour with snacks and beer. Yes free beer every afternoon with nachos, chips, etc and finish it off with cookies. Though it is not a resort compared to others but decided we stayed at this location because we were treated like family. I forgot his name but a African American young male who works the shuttle and happy hour made out stay pleasant. Visiting from Los Angeles, CA he gave us detailed information on the areas and when and how to get there (since we didn't want to drive).

There are Golf Carts (not a taxi because they are expensive) that can be found everywhere for pick up and drop off to the Hotel. Big Red Ride are quick trips to Old Town, Fashion Square, etc.

Room Tip: First Floor by the pool so you can walk back & fourth to pool for snacks & drinks

Needed a place for business for two weeks. Picked the express as I am a priority member. Got on late and received a room in the corner, little view. Nice breakfast if you can get to it. Today there was a bus and chaos was everywhere at the breakfast area. It looks good but I was just in the way trying to eat so I left. The staff is awesome and work very hard. I tip so I make a sure the room maids, and evening reception get what they deserve. Nice wine and beer at night. At the pool, like being there but has been dirty at the bottom everyday. Not sure it gets skimmed everyday. Lots of foreigners staying here and they are not very social so expect rudeness from them. Overall, stay here, with my travels, you will be happy!
