Nice Apt Style Retro Hotel

This hotel is located in Old Town and in walking distance to many restaurants, bars etc. It is located in an neighborhood full of retro apartments. Very safe. I had a large studio apartment complete with full kitchen. No patio in the unit I stayed in which was 201. That didn't matter because there was great seating around the pool area. Unit was clean and I never heard noise from the pool. There is no elevator. The pool is the social gathering place with music, hot tub and BBQ grills you can use. Staff was accommodating and helpful.

great place

Started with a small (hot water) issue, yet the staff more than made up for it with a generous offer to compensate. The rooms were large and clean. Pool and common areas were really comfortable and a great place to spend the day. Will definitely stay here again

No free wifi

Most hotels provide free wifi in the room as well as in the lobby area. This hotel charges a $15 fee for wifi and the wifi was down half the time. The hotel is an old apartment complex. The exterior of the hotel has been given a nice face lift and the pool area was large with lots of sitting areas, tv's and a fire pit however the room interiors need improvement.

rare find

the Eldorado might not be the newest, most popular place in Scottsdale, that is why it is a well kept secret. The El Dorado is like something out if the past with a modern twist of retro, charm, happy friendly staff. Had a great stay!

Fun and funky

We found the El Dorado to be a fun place to spend a few days. The ambience is somewhere between 50s and today, a nice mix. Phil the Peacock was an added bonus, especially when he was let out of his cage for a while. The music around the pool was a mix of New Age and smooth jazz mostly good, but sometimes louder than necessary. The location was perfect for us, close to Old Town, and easy to use a base for exploring the area. Finding it was a bit of a challenge, but thanks to our GPS we did find it. Staff was exceptionally friendly.

Clean 1930's Vegas style hotel, full kitchen, king size bed. Staff very friendly. Conveniently located in the heart of Phoenix. Downfall internet access issues.

Cool space

Very cool feel. Pool area had a swanky feel. Pool was warm. Hot tub hot. We had a two bedroom regular room - not luxury. It was very nice. Clean and spacious.

El Dorado

I will start with the worst thing still bothering me and then move on to the positives. They have a large Peacock bird in a very small cage, isolated from stimulation with only a mirror in the cage for the bird to look at himself , and a perch to stand on. There really is not room for that bird to walk around. It is housed next to a sign that says very hot meaning that something around the area from some sort of heating or cooling system is hot. Not even in an area where people can view the bird so what is the point of that bird being there? This is bad. It needs to be corrected by housing that bird in a satisfactory area where it can at least move around. The animal is truly in prison. Horrible! Next: Excellent staff. Very accommodating and anything Very friendly staff. Anything we asked for was provided immediately. The grounds and pool area are decent. The pool is a good size for a smaller hotel. In fact I would rate the size above average. The gas fire pit has nice ambiance and the furniture surrounding the pool is nice and comfortable. There is a nice area for grilling. The rooms were fairly clean, but appliances were quite old. The 2 bedroom was roomy. Give that bird a better home. Please. The Animal Humane Society should take a look at its living condition.
