We had a big room. It was very quite and cozy. Great Location. I would stay here again.
Just a few steps away is a great grocery store with everything you need. I wish we could have stayed longer! The pool was small but we didn't come here for that. We had a small patio with a table and chairs. It had a big living room area, too.

We booked the SmokeTree for a weekend stay in Scottsdale. The location is ideal, and the price was good. We were traveling with a dog, and they didn’t charge a pet fee, which is nice.

The property is a collection of small buildings, with three or four rooms in each. The rooms are more like old style apartments, with cinder block construction and low ceilings. There are mini kitchens, a full living room, separate bedroom, and large walk-in closet, which is really not useful for a short stay. The bathroom is small, with no counter space making it pretty inconvenient.

Though the hotel description on TripAdvisor states “recently remodeled”, the room was very outdated and in need of maintenance. A fresh coat of paint would go a long way. The furniture is worn and out of style. The bed was really old and extremely uncomfortable. The carpet was worn at the transition from the tile in the living area. It is possible that we were put into an older room because we were traveling with a pet, but I walked the grounds and the exterior of all the buildings looked like they were all in the same shape.

The hotel description on TripAdvisor also indicates the property is 5 acres, but I would say it’s barely one. The gardens are well taken care of, and the pool area is nice, but smaller than it looks in the photos. It is really nice with a dog because the pool area is fenced in, and covered in grass.

The staff were very pleasant and friendly. We had a problem with a noisy neighbor (as I said, there is no sound proofing), and they responded quickly and were very pleasant about it.

All in all, the SmokeTree could be a really nice place, but it does need some attention. I think they’d be better off renting as a vacation rental for longer stays and people looking for more of a home away from home feeling.

Tucked away on over 5 acres in Scottsdale is this hotel paradise.

Lush and manicured grounds, a staff that happily tends to your needs, being minutes from the best activities, shopping and dining all add to the Smoke Tree’s specialness.

Clean modern rooms, all with views of the property, a beautiful pool, Bocci ball and a fire pit (gas) with big comfortable chairs to relax in.

Great place to relax, tend to business, or have a family gathering.

Then there are those Arizona sunsets, and a glass of wine.

We’ve been coming here for 14 years! It just gets better!

This is not like staying at an actual hotel. It's honestly like staying at a person's house: the bedding/furnishings and furniture are all outdated and mismatched. The A/C unit is a small one that doesn't cool the room properly. The website boasts "premium bath amenities" which I'm not sure what it means, but the bathtub was an ordinary tub with chipping, same with the sink and toilet, nothing fancy. There was hair on the walls of the bathroom from former guests. The cable was shoddy, working on and off. For an area where we were told not to drink the tap water, there was no drinking water offered or available on the premises.
On a positive note, the owner was incredibly nice.

We've been coming to Scottsdale for years and only wish we had found this place sooner. They are very low key and very wonderful. Our "bungalow" was clean, very roomy with many amenities such as refrigerator, coffee pot, wine glasses, comfortable chairs, and a work table. Best of all there was a patio and likewise comfortable chairs. it was very pleasant to sit out in the evening and have a glass of wine. As each unit is separated from others, it is very quiet. The grounds are well-maintained. There is a 24-hour pool, bocci ball and interesting sculptures as you walk around the lawns. The owners couldn't have been friendlier or more accommading as was the cleaning staff.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good and all were on the ground level.
