We were driving all day from Flagstaff, AZ and arrived at the Desert Winds without having a reservation. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I asked for two rooms to be adjacent or at least very close together. She got us rooms 102 and 103 which ere on the ground floor in a corner next to the pool and vending machine. First I thought "What a nightmare", but it turned out to be no problem. Like other reviewers mentioned the main street and the train tracks run close to the hotel but this was no problem at all for us. We heard nothing inside the room. After checking in we set the AC to high to cool down the room and sat at the pool for a few hours enjoying some wine. When we went to bed we set the AC to the "low cool" mode which kept the room cool overnight and wasn't too noisy. Actually all members of my party confirmed that they had the best night sleep of the past several nights. I myself slept like a log. The train or traffic weren't audible in the room and the matress was excellent!
The next morning we had breakfast in the little breakfast room across the driveway. Again, the room doesn't look like much but the breakfast buffet offered everything a warm breakfast should have. MYO waffles, toast, eggs, joices, coffee, cereals, etc. WiFi also worked in the breakfast room.
The room rates are very reasonable. The hotel was clean, the rooms were clean and the beds were very good. We enjoyed our stay and I can highly recommend this hotel for an overnight stay after a long day in the desert. I'll stay here again when travelling this route.
