Good Choice

Been here five times and it is always good. Overall it is a better value than other hotels in the area and has better amenities. It simply is at the top of hotels in it's price range. Location is right off highway and close to many Phoenix attractions.

Surprising gem

We booked online and stopped at the inn about 15 minutes later. Pleasantly surprised with accommodations and the free breakfasts. Pool was heated so spent time in the sun. Liked our first night so much we stayed an additional 2. Easy getting around especially to old Scottsdale area. Would come again. Large rooms.

Bathroom

The Room was very dated. the heat didn't work. There was mold on the bathroom walls. The shower was dirty and needed a good cleaning. the drain was very slow and after a few minutes, there was standing water in the tub. The hair Dryer was broken. No extra blankets. Would not stay there again or recommend. The restaurant has no butter for breakfast! there was a grocery store down the block, someone could of went and got some.....it was breakfast!!!!!

Romm was old and smelly

Staff were very nice. The room (164) was musty and smelled bad. The toilet tended to keep running after flushing. The water temperature was hard to control in the sink as well as the shower. The mattress was well worn. Breakfast buffet was good.

Average to shabby

Pool and hot tub were the bright spots at this facility. Rooms need a bit of touching up but they were clean and roomy even though they were quite dated. Staff seemed unhappy to be there but answered questions to the best of their ability. Breakfast was the same every day and several days the food was not hot. Would recommend with caveats.

COLD

DO NOT STAY IN THIS PLACE DURING COLD NIGHTS! The heater never worked. Also they need to hire more people for the weekend crowd. They only had one person at the desk with a long line of customers waiting to sign in!
