Good overnight stay

Would recommend Sun, May 17, 2015
Went up to Cave Creek for my girlfriends birthday. Had dinner at Binkley's and instead of driving all the way back into the city, decided to stay at this resort. The room was really nice, bed was comfortable, just no internet. Didn't affect us that much as we weren't in the room for much. The resort has a really nice pool area, wish we would have stayed there longer to take advantage of it

Great value for the location and type of resort. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay outside of the downtown area at a resort but does not want to pay the ridiculous cost

Great Winter Retreat!

Would recommend Wed, Mar 18, 2015
Wonderful location in the desert but centrally located between Phoenix & Sedona.exquisite landscaping, beautiful pool area, staff eager to please. Welcoming lobby, rooms very clean & have a great western theme. We plan to return every year, hopefully with our kids & grands. Classy without being "uppity": sooo comfortable! Perfect winter getaway!

business trip

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 18, 2015
The hotel room no. is not lit at night, and one cannot find the room at night. I watched the poor room service guy going to multiple rooms before locating the right room for delivery, as I did when I was checking in. Please either put room numbers along the side walk, or put a light over it outside the door.

Affordable for the area.

Would recommend Sat, Oct 18, 2014
I have stayed here twice while in the area, both times have just been overnight. It is always the best deal with a good location and good amenities but at a third of the cost.

Good Hotel for a Reasonable Price

Would recommend Fri, Sep 12, 2014
I came to the area for "house hunting" for our retirement.This is a good hotel for a good price. It has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and desert vegetation. The large pool and area was well maintained and not overcrowded. I really enjoyed this part. Location is convenient to Carefree and Cave Creek, just a couple of miles away. Hotel provides shuttle, although I had my own car that I could park for free. The room was outdated but clean. I enjoyed the balcony. One night I came back after 10 pm and was starved. The (only) hotel restaurant was already closed, as well as the room service! The staff was friendly but not exceptional. Overall i liked my stay and would come back again.

Dining

All restaurants in the area, including the one in the hotel, close at 10 pm.

Weekend getaway spot

Would recommend Tue, Jul 29, 2014
Love this place we go a couple weekends a year to get away. Prices are decent and we really like the shuttle we can take to and from the bars and restaurants. Try the fish tacos at their restaurant!

Great place to relax.

Would recommend Tue, Jul 15, 2014
I was there for a conference. Had a few problems but the staff took care of it right away. The food was excellent & a very fair value. All of the staff was accommodating to our conference needs & individual needs. Plan on returning for just some relaxation time with my dog.

Dining

Lots of restaurants in carefree.
