“very poor facility”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Stay 2 nights. The building is very dated and tired looking. Bed was comfortable but the room had an unpleasant odour. Cleanliness could have been better.

Had to run the Guantlet of smokers on the walkways to the room, which was not pleasent. Breakfast is bad I waited to get the ofice to eat the second day.

Only positive was the front desk staff were friendly and efficent, excellent actually. There are much better hotels on the same street close by for similar price.

Room Tip: get a room away form the road to lessen the highway noise.

Stay here every holiday spent with family. Room is very quiet, bed is comfortable, sleep is guaranteed. The front desk staff is always courteous. I return here for the whirlpool bathtubs and the amenities.

I spent there 6 nights during my business trip. Good location, room spacious and very clean, very comfortable bed, nice and helpful staff. The only thing which was not so good for me was a breakfast, but this is a personal taste.

Wish the breakfast was open till 10AM everyday. Great office staff. Always accomidating. Fast friendly service. Carpets are getting pretty worn out. May need to be replaced. The rest of the room is great though.

If you need a less expensive hotel than the Raddison or Sheraton this is a good option. Pretty good location for access to business locations off of Foothills Expressway.

Rooms are old looking and bathroom was very small (sink outside) but $135 is much better than $250.

Breakfast was included but nothing to get excited about.

It's a matter of price people.

We have stayed at several plus properties but I would not rate this a plus. More a regular Best Western, mismatched furniture made the room very dated. Bed was comfortable, but weird sink area. The sink area counter needs to be larger to accommodate personal hygiene bags etc,. If I were in a pinch, I would stay again but would negotiate a better rate.

All things considered, this facility of a overpriced. The room was fairly comfortable, but the vanity area lighting was poor--difficulty to see details, particularly for the older folks (I'm on of them). The TV was old enough to be donated to a museum. Come on Best Western, flat screens are cheap these days. The heating system was very noisy, making it difficult to get a good nights sleep. The office staff were very courteous and helpful. Breakfast was okay; but because it was included in the price of our stay, we can't complain.
