Worn-Out Property - Not recommended

Did not measure up to Motel photos and description. Second floor reached by open outside stairway, room/bath small and cramped, pet odor. Property is dirty and not maintained. Vehicle parking space is small and limited. Lion's share is located in unlighted alleyway behind Motel. Zero security.

Ladies Golf Trip

We were pleasantly surprised how nice the hotel was for the price. It was fun sitting by the pool visiting. Desk staff gave us great recommendations for restaurants nearby-Lao Thai and Frasher's. Breakfast at the hotel was great. Felt safe and comfortable.

Nice quiet comfort

The beds here are very comfortable and the rooms are very quiet. The only shortcoming was the lack of a microwave.

Hardly a resort

This is a motel with a nice pool area in an inner courtyard. Note that they keep a large birdcage with budgies which may wake you if you are a light sleeper. Breakfast at the attached restaurant ($8-10) was quite good. We didn't have any specific problems, but the location seemed a bit suspect at first - many signs about video surveillance, and the massage parlour next door strangely faces the hotel parking lot instead of being front facing like the other businesses in the mini mall next door.

Better than expected

Upon first impression, I thought this would be a "motel 6" kind of experience. I was very pleasantly surprised. Rooms were clean, beds comfy, with extra touches here and there that really added up to a very pleasant stay. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Nice. Planning to stay here again. Great value.

Dated but spotless and managed well

The hotel is dated but the friendly management has installed granite coutertops, minifridge, coffee machine, comfortable & clean beds and wall mounted hair dryer. The building is a welcoming courtyard configuration with an aviary of happy parakeets, calming fountain, large chess set & inviting seating all around the well maiintained pool. Also free wi-fi and computer access in "business center". We didn't get that at the $200+/night on the other side of town! Will definately book another stay at this Best Western when in town!

Great Location, Great Price

The room is not very large, but very clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom and shower, has a refrigerator, but no microwave. Free wireless internet. Close to the airport, old town Scottsdale, and many other activities. I will not look for any other hotel on my next stay in Scottsdale.
