“Clean, spacious - and pet friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you're just passing through Show Low (or looking for a chance to get out of the heat in the Phoenix valley), you could do worse than the Paint Pony.

Right on the main drag (Deuce of Clubs or Rte 260), it's clean, the rooms are big - and they allow pets.(NOTE: there is a $15/night charge per pet, plus a refundable cleaning deposit). No designated place to walk the pet, but plenty of options.

Mini fridge & microwave in the room. Flat screen TV. And a better-than-average Best Western breakfast (and I've stayed at many). Far from gourmet fare, it's better than the typical cereal & pastries at most 'free breakfast' offers (eggs, meat, biscuits & gravy, fresh fruit). Friendly service, a convenient location and reasonable price (at least in mid-summer).

Room Tip: 260/Deuce of Clubs is a busy street; for the quietest rooms, get one on the upper floor of the '...

Great location next to a terrific Mexican restaurant/Steakhouse, the city park, and a full-service grocery store. Great value for larger than expected rooms. Very clean and friendly staff. Breakfast is included which is a plus, but the food items and dining area were mediocre to inadequate. But it was still nice to have the option. Mini-fridge and microwaves are a plus too. Great for families. Although ti is a little further for skiers to Sunrise, I find this hotel a great value and recommend it to families and those wanting the most conveniences for the money.

Room Tip: Fireplace rooms are available which are great in the winter

Great location, nice Mexican restaurant next door (I recommend the enchiladas and deep-fried desert burritos :-). Very spacious room in excellent condition and the fireplace was well worth the extra money. A relaxing and pleasant stay.

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!
