Excellent local getaway for couples

My wife and I were in need of a quick getaway sans kids. The Valley Ho was perfect for us to have a night on the town and still be close to home. Trader Vics was great dining and our room was decorated in a perfect mid-century modern style. Very hip and affordable!

Super Fun Hotel With Great Retro Vibe!

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the hotel has all been redone in a hip mid-century style. The room was very modern and clean with a great bed. The location is awesome. Just a few blocks away is Old Town Scottsdale, where you can shop or hit restaurants or bars. We also went for happy hour to Trader Vics, which is on-site of the hotel. They have the best happy hour food 7 days a week, all for 1,2 or 3 dollars. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay there again. The only thing that wasn't for us, was the pool, which was very crowded and had loud music playing. It was perfect for 20 and 30 year olds, but a little too hardcore for us.

Great place to stay in Scottsdale

The hotel is beautiful, obviously just renovated. Beware of hidden and not so hidden costs though. For a cup of coffee in the morning at the cafe Zuzu, be prepared to shell out $3.50. Also, we were not aware that there is "mandatory" valet parking for $12.00 plus tax and of course tip per night. Valet staff and all hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is central to Old Town Scottsdale and the Arts district. Many good restaurants can be found a few blocks away on Scottsdale road.

Made a mistake - Don't stay here -

My experience was not what I was used to. I hated staying in the motel part and the clerk did not offer a room in the hotel part. I did request a smoking room to be told it was all non-smoking, so I had no choice but to go outside in all kinds of weather. The only thing that the Valley Ho offers is a bar, restaurant and pool. I would have liked to have been able to go to a casino and shopping while there. This was the worst place I have ever stayed at, the clerk when I was checking out told me about a shop when I was leaving.

Nice Hotel...a bit of a party atmosphere

My wife and I stayed at the Valley Ho to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the decor was nice. We arrived on a Saturday evening around 4:30 and left our car with valet parking. We waited approx 5-7 minutes in line to check in. There was a very large group of people at the pool area and music being played very loudly; it seemed like a party going on. We had reservations for dinner at Trader Vics at 6PM and our dinner was excellent! Our stay was nice, but the other guests that we encountered during our stay seemed to be more into the drinking and partying and our neighbors who arrived back in their room around 2:30 AM were very loud. I am not sure I would reccomend this hotel for families or someone who just wanted a quiet relaxing stay.
