This hotel is in the perfect spot!! Close to the Old Town, the Arts and the Shopping, it's all within walking distance. The hotel itself was clean, bathroom was recently remodelled and the rooms were of a good size and clean. It is extremely reasonably priced!! Don't let the price discourage you, so cheap, you can't beat it and it's not run down like you would expect at this price, it is very clean and well run... would definitely stay there again!!

If you are looking for an inexpensive motel with a GREAT location (especially to Old Scottsdale), look no further. You are within walking distance to Old Scottsdale. This motel is nothing fancy (enter room from the outside). It does have an outdoor pool and hot tub.
The lobby is a bit small as is the free continental breakfast.
If you need a nice, clean room to sleep and are not looking for anything fancy; this is it.
The location is this motel's finest drawing point.

For the price, very nice accommodations. This is a silly criteria but having a sleep timer on a (nice) TV makes me happy. We didn't use them, but there was a microwave and fridge (also a criteria that makes me happy). Girl who checked us in and the lady who checked us out were very nice. Pool looked great but one of us (not me) forgot their swimsuit. There was a large group staying and I heard some laughter and movement during the night but otherwise they didn't bother us at all. The continental breakfast was all carbs, so we ended up going to the Paradise Cafe across the street. Which leads me to my final point - the location of this hotel was the best feature. Old Town was half a block away and we were able to easily walk the loop and then walk back after a few margaritas. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed 3 nites during the Barrett Jackson. We had two rooms as we travelled with another couple. Our service from the first minute was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and maintenance looked after a plugged toilet immediately. The hotel is located in old Downtown Scottsdale so it is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. The pool was open (for us crazy Canadians!) so even tho' the weather had been extemely cool, we were able to enjoy one afternoon in the sun once it warmed up.
About a block away is the Coach House, a fun little bar that was still covered in Christmas lights and our favourite supper establishment was the Saddle Ranch Chop House on Scottsdale Rd. Peterson's Ice Cream on 5th Ave was really yummy too!!
We would recommend this hotel to everyone and would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel during the Barret Jackson Auction. The location is great. Close to restaurants and bars. Breakfast was more than adequate. Just a couple of housekeeping issues. Toilet was constantly running, after the second night, husband fixed it. Coffee pot was not the appropriate pot for the applicance and was not cleaned after the first use. Otherwise great stay!
