Best Western Space Age Lodge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This theme related motel had quite different decor. It was clean and comfortable. The front desk check in was very good. It was more expensive than expected but there are few options in Gila Bend as it is a small town. The partnered restaurant was very hit and miss. The service and food were poor at dinner time but greatly improved for the included breakfast.

I loved this place. From the history, the friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, and comfy beds. Sure, rooms are smaller than average, but it was just me so it was okay. The bed was wonderful. Bath/shower was hot, and rooms were immaculate. The theme was well done but not too much either. Also, my mother was concerned about my safety. It was a nice comfort to see three locks on the door. Compared to tge experiences of colleagues who chose to stay at the Choice Inn, this place is the best you can get. I will definitely return.

Clean, nicely furnished, large room with friendly staff. Comfy bed. What more can you ask for when needing to spend a night on the road? The space theme is fun. You get a so-so breakfast in the restaurant in the morning. Even though it was a cold and windy night we used the outdoor hot tub - very nice. Yes, the train runs behind the place, but I never heard a train horn during the night.

This hotel is a tad expensive considering it is in Gila Bend. But, it is clean and bright, the rooms and bathrooms have all been updated. Staff was incredibly friendly. Trains run behind the hotel and can be noisy. Comp. breakfast in the adjoining restaurant which was average but OK.

As are all the motels in Gila Bend, they are are older and many have seen better decades. It’s just this one, is better than the others. It’s clean, the bathrooms and the beds have been updated. Nicely painted, no stains on the carpets and the staff are pleasant. There is a convenient restaurant adjoining the hotel (you walk outside) that provides good food and the service is at best, average. However, you will pay for all of this. The hotel is expensive. They wouldn’t get away with these prices if they were anywhere near PHX. But this is Gila’s the middle of nowhere and the alternatives are cheaper, but WAY more tired than this place. They got you! If I had to stay in Gila Bend again, would I stay there? Sure. But I’ll try to avoid it in my travel if I can.

Friendly front desk, easy check-in/out, typical diner food served by friendly staff. Room was very clean, looked recently updated, and bed was very comfortable. Housekeeping does a great job. Just what I needed after hiking all day. My only complaint was the railroad tracks close by (but since all the hotels in Gila Bend are, can’t really avoid it). The rate was a little pricey for the area but it was worth the extra cost to stay in a clean, well-maintained, and fun-themed hotel.

We ended up in Gila Bend after opting out of the expensive options in Phoenix on our way to San Diego. We used our satellite navigation to highlight our accommodation options and were happy to find a Best Western in the middle of nowhere as is was getting dark and late. I am not sure what to make of the whole space theme but it was novel and well characterised through out the venue. Our room was clean comfortable and well appointed with complimentary toiletries, blow dryer, ironing board etc. We were also welcomed by a couple of local cats who I thought were rather cute. We knew we were on a major road and rail line but it didn't really interfere with our comfort. Lorraine in reception was pleasant and called once we were in our room to make sure we were comfortable. I did think it was slightly expensive in comparison to some of the inner city properties we have stayed in in the past few days @$119.99 plus taxes. It's an older style property with not a lot of additional facilities other than breakfast, but we had limited choice and stayed anyway. This motel is a good clean honest venue if you find yourself in this neck of the woods.

We’ve stayed here many times. We like to park right outside the room. The older updates to the rooms are starting to show some wear but it is clean and comfortable. The air conditioning unit kept our winter room warm. It runs constantly so no dealing with the on and off noise all night. Big screen tv, refrigerator, table, chairs. Sink outside shower area. Non working bathroom fan. They have the best free breakfast in a real restaurant with real eggs starting at 5am so you can get an early start on your next long day. Next to train tracks but the noise is muffled and has never been a bother to us.

Older motel that has been refurbished. By far, considering it's age, the cleanest motel we have ever stayed at. Great staff. There is a restaurant attached. Very clean. Limited menu, but very filling and great tasting food.

Great stop between Flagstaff and San Diego. Good food on location with complementary fresh cooked breakfast. Older vintage motel with recent remodeling. The best amenity is ALL the VERY hot water a family requires--a rare occurrence these days with motels lowering their water temperatures to luke-warm. We had a good night sleep on a firm mattress.
