“Spacious Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

For a relaxing stop, try this Best Western right on the main highway into Show Low. The rooms are very clean, and quite roomy. The two times I've stayed I had a room with a mini-fridge. The only bummer is the breakfast is disappointing. The front desk help also operates the tiny breakfast area, and never seems to stay caught up with the crowd. They were using the microwave to thaw biscuits, thus preventing others from using it. The egg container was empty and dirty, and the juice is WAY watered down. Bright side; there is a Native New Yorker just a few doors down that serves great wings and is open late!

My husband and I were passing through enroute from Ontario to Scottsdale and found this gem of a hotel online. Based on the positive reviews we booked a dog friendly room and were not disappointed. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. Internet is hi speed. The front desk staff are very welcoming and helpful. They gave us two excellent recommendations: a nearby park which had a nice 1 mi walking path and leash free area for our springer spaniel and the restaurant next door, 'Licano's Mexican Food/Stkhouse 'which was good value and of excellent quality. My husband had the prime rib and I had the butterfly shrimp. Highly recommend this Best Western Lodge.

We recently stayed at this motel with pets on our road trip from Minnesota to California, via Scottsdale, and we had a huge nice clean room and they offer a great hot breakfast in their cozy lobby/eating room with stone fireplace and hot cookies upon checkin. No complaints about this place and love that you can drive up and unload right outside your room, especially if you are carrying pet carriers, etc. We stayed in the back building, lower lovel. They are also right next to a great Mexican restaurant, so not far for dinner, if you are too tired to stray.

Well, we were planning to stay at the Hampton Inn but it was a little pricey for the Holiday Season so we decided this trip we would look around. We settled on the Best Western here. We arrived, and the place is charming with a nice fireplace in the lobby. The check-in staff was very friendly, and the coffee and cookies in the lobby upon check-in were a nice touch. The hotel has been here for a long time (since 1963 I believe) and I was expecting the room to show its age. Boy was I wrong. They have taken good care of the complex. The rooms are immaculately clean, a pretty good size, and they are quiet! They had all the amenities a person could need (cozy towels and blankets as well) in the room, and based on my interactions with the staff, I am certain that I could have asked for salt shaker at midnight and probably had it delivered cheerfully.

I had mentioned that we were eating at a local restaurant that night and I was impressed when they called the room to tell me they checked and the restaurant was closed for the day -- without my asking!

The morning breakfast was hot, tasty, and included in the rate! Overall, we would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone requiring any level of service! Great job, and thank you!

--No pool though. But not really a big deal for a short stay!

Room Tip: They tell me the back rooms are bigger, but the rooms at the front are big enough to me. Ask for a...

Made our reservation online. Everything was in order upon arrival. Had a quiet spacious well appointed room away from the street. Everything in the room worked as it should. Front desk people were cheerful, helpful, and efficient. The breakfast room is very well laid out and a great variety. Bacon & eggs, bisquit and gravy, waffels, the works. They even had the syrup on warmers and one had on sugar. Good selection of fresh fruit. The breakfast room attendant was friendly, efficient and ran a well stocked and clean operation. This is a good location close to shopping (except WalMart), several good restaurants, The New Yorker (sports bar and dining), Luciano's (Mexican), JB's (American buffet and menu) and a variety of fast food shops.

Room Tip: Away from the street rooms are most quiet.

I've stayed here on business four times over the past year. Some good things: rooms in the back building are clean, nice and big, breakfast is well-organized and the breakfast lady is very attentive, front desk staff is helpful and polite. It's an easy place to stay. For vacationers, the only draw back would be you need to drive everywhere. It is on the main drag, so finding things is not difficult.
