“A nice place that meets expectations!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This Best Western is right on the main street in Show Low. Safeway with Starbucks across the street and a nice Mexican food place next door. The hotel has a bright clean lobby and shared area for free breakfast. The breakfast we had was sausage, eggs, waffles, toast. juice and coffee. All very nice and clean and well kept. The hotel has two buildings (each is two story with stairs only) and one is closer to the main street ... the other building is a little farther back. Would recommend the back building only in case of road noise. Our room was large with two comfortable queen beds, a great refrig and microwave, plus TV and coffee maker. Had a table plus two chairs and a desk with another chair ... made for plenty of seating. Wifi was included in the room price and it worked well. The bath had a nice tub/shower with good hot water and pressure. The room was spotless and everything seemed very clean. There was no pool, but there was a washer and dryer for guests (pay of course). This hotel is not a fancy place, but the price is very fair, rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It was a very good stay and would stay here again!

Room Tip: The back building is farther from the main street and may offer a quieter night. Second floors are s...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We love the food next door, always a winner. Yes we do not have a pool , but we do use a gym we pay for that has a pool our guest can use. Next time you stay with us ask the front desk about the gym/pool card and they will get you all set up. We hope to see you soon.

Very clean. No cleaning agent smell. Fully equipped but not fancy. Very comfy bed. Very adequate breakfast and nice attractive lobby area to sit and eat it. Super staff. Reasonable price which all adds up to a great value for me. Will be back again.

This hotel was excellent! Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff was very nice and helpful! They went out of their way to help us. No pool, but other than that this hotel was pretty close to perfect.

We booked this room using our Best Western points. We were in Show Low for a church camp and we were out at the camp until very late so did not check in until just after midnight. I tried to call all day to tell them we would have a late arrival but the line was always busy. We arrived and the desk clerk was very friendly. I told her about the busy signal and she checked her phone and had me call it while she looked at it. I still got the busy signal and her phone never rang. A problem with the phone. My worry was that they might give the room away thinking we were not coming, but not a problem. She even gave us bonus points for the stay. Very nice and friendly. We had room 204 which faced the breakfast room. The rooms all face outdoors. At 5 a.m. we were awakened by very loud motorcycles who were leaving for the day. It was louder due to the echo created by facing the breakfast building. Lots of talking too. I would have been more upset it we were trying to sleep in as we did not get settled until almost 1 a.m. but as it was we had to get up at 5:30 anyway. And I admit when we arrived after midnight, because the sound carries at the check-in, we may have disturbed a few people too. We did not utilize the breakfast as we had to be back at the camp. The room was very large, and very clean. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the pillows were so hard I had a headache and neck ache most of the night. I would stay there again, but bring my own pillow. The Paint Pony is a nice place to stay, very clean, but i would ask for a room in the back!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the front of the hotel.

Good hotel for the money, comfortable, friendly staff. Central location close to restaurants and our family. We usually stay here when we come out twice a year to visit. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, nice breakfast.

Always a great place to stay when you need an escape from the sweltering Arizona heat. The generous breakfast is ample enough to get you through a day hike. Will definitely stay here again soon enough.

Arizona White Mountain area is cool and beautiful and such a wonderful place to be. Breakfast is one of the most important meals so assuring an ample one every morning for our guests is very important to us. We are glad to hear it was up to your expectations. We will be sure to provided the same excellent breakfast for you on your next visit to our desert oasis in Show Low, AZ!
