“Good decent clean hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2007

Let's face it, there is not a whole lot to see or do in Wickenburg. It's a small, western town about an hour outside Phoenix.

I was here to meet up with my husband who was working at Lake Havasu all week.

There is not alot to choose from but this is a nice little hotel. Room was small, probably one of the smallest I have had but it was very clean. Front desk check in was very nice and gave me a little flyer of things to do in Wickenburg, and gave me 2 breakfast coupons for the Golden Nugget restaurant across the street.

Hotel was quiet and had a small pool and spa.

Room had cable TV, ironing board, A/C wall unit, high speed internet which worked and was handy. All you need to do is ask the front desk for the cable.

Would recommend.

Stayed July 2007

This hotel is located right on the main streeet in Downtown Wickenburg. We liked the fact that we were walking distance from numerous local restaurants and shops. Be forewarned, however, the highway gets a lot of heavy truck traffic, so if you are a light sleeper you may want to request a room toward the back of the property.

The hotel has been around quite a while, and the layout reflected this as the hotel obviously had been added onto over the years. To my eye, it did not make as positive impression as some newer mid-priced hotels do . Along these lines, the rooms all open to the outdoors, in contrast to the more modern design of interior corridors. The large lobby area contains a nice sitting room for working or visiting away from your room.

The front desk and staff were very helpful, dispensing good advice when asked and helping in every way they could.

Breakfast is via discount coupons at a coffee shop/restaurant across the street. We liked that. The restaurant staff was helpful, the food was good, and for a discounted price you can purchase a more complete breakfast if you want.

If you like larger spaces in your rooms, you might request an upgrade to the queen double rooms in the back of the complex. Those were nice and spacious. I have heard that the standard rooms are smaller, but I haven't stayed in one so I cannot speak to that.

The room we stayed in seemed to have been refurbished in recent years, although the decor was not really to my taste. If that is a transgression, it is more than forgiveable.

In terms of value, I thought it was so-so, but I did not really comparison shop to the other hotels in town. The place kind of grew on me over a several-day stay. It was comfortable, spacious, and well-located. I definitely would return.

We were so pleasantly surprised to clean, well kept room. Very large for a hotel/motel! The front desk lady was very helpful! The pool was very refreshing!
Our bed was so comfortable and we enjoyed a nice quiet restful evening.
Would highly recommend!

Checked in late on this day (5pm) and got into our room to settle down from a long day driving.
The room smelled musty, my feet stuck to the carpet (so I kept my shoes on the whole time). There were dead and dying cockroaches everywhere, behind the tv stand, under the luggage racks, in the bathroom etc. The beds were soft, the linens were cheap, and the front desk clerk had more than just your normal "bad attitude"....................Don't waste your time in this place. We can't figure out how in the world this place is even allowed to use the Best Western affiliation. Keep on driving past this nightmare!

The "free" breakfast consisted of coupons for the coffee shop across the street, where you had to go thru cigarette smoke, wait to be served, put up with a grumpy waitress, have a choice of toast or a fake blueberry muffin, wait for coffee...and waste a lot of time! Plus the cost of a tip unless you wanted to stiff the waitress. The hotel claimed that was the best they could do when Best Western required them to provide breakfast.

This is a nice clean place with a friendly staff. The only problem I had here is that this is an older building and it doesn't appear to have much insulation, so the air conditioner could not keep up with the heat of the day. It was over 100*, so it got a little warm in the room, but I'd still stay here again.

On a recent motorcycle trip we had the opportunity to stay at the Rancho Grande. The service at the counter was outstanding! There is a nice counter full of brochures displaying many of the local activiites at the front desk. The clerk was very knowledgeable about the local area. We were even offered rags to wipe down the motocycle. The rooms are extremely clean, and well maintained. The king bed we had was firm with a pillow top mattress and an over abundance of very large, fluffy pillows. The rooms and the main parking lot face away from the main street, so road noise is minimal and your vehicle is out of sight from the traffic. The hotel is located right next to a coffee shop and small restaraunt. There is a Cirlce K, European restaraunt, Italian restaruant and a restaraunt called the Golden Nugget with American fare all within walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.
