“Walking distance to Old Town Scottsdale”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

From the outside, it looks like a budget motel, but:
-- it's in the middle of a great location, tons of good restaurants and bars. There is a big park with a small lake and fountains, right there by the Scottsdale Library, 2 blocks away
-- rooms are nice and clean, well maintained, bed was soft, a/c unit worked fine.
-- walking distance to the business district as well. If you are there on business, that is handy. Only one block.
If you arrive after 11pm, food will be hard to find. Prepare to go bars and dance. And yes, it's a safe neighborhood but watch yourself at night, lots of friendly drunk people.

Overall, good value!

Room Tip: Choose second floor

Great location walking distance to all of old town, the canal if biking, art center, with diverse options for dining! Upon arrival my reservation was not as promised--king bed second floor. The person @ the desk said someone moved this so will see what I have! Second floor but 2 queens, and it was not even 1/2 full. Upon entering room was clean with standard AC/Heating. There is a microwave, coffee, refrig, iron/ironing board and hair dryer in the room. The frig froze my fruit, and the control for the TV only worked if stood directly in front of the TV. Returned one of the hand towels for a replacement as it was stained. There is no mat in the tub so slipping and sliding is an issue. Upon departure asked where the mat might be and was told, you must ask for one! There is free tea/fruit/coffee 24/7 and w/ stay a continental breakfast is included. Did not embark on any of the breads, muffins, bagels, and or yogurt but there is ample for all. The juice was fine and packages of oatmeal and tea were available.
My BIGGEST complaint which cost me a night of peaceful sleep was the AC which rattled and banged when running even on low. Thus, a lost night with getting up to turn it off, then needing to get up to turn it on, July in AZ. The bed was comfy and it was adorned with a lovely comforter. I'd return but would do a complete CHECK before I settled in for the night with a mat for the tub!

Room Tip: I'd suggest second floor middle away from stair traffic. If children, not into climbing or walki...
