Howard Johnson Scottsdale Old Town

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

No elevator Next to a nightclub, very loud at night. Otherwise fine.

Very friendly staff, responded to any questions with prompt, helpful information. Comfortable and clean room with nice flat screen tv. Not a fancy room with high end upgrades, but that was not a concern for me. Although I did not use the pool, it is nice that the hotel has this amenity. The hot tub is a good choice if you return the the hotel after being on your feet all day.

Clean rooms friendly staff and close to a lot of entertainment and restaurants

ok room, nothing fancy, ok tv, free internet worked fine, staff was friendly, good location, could easy walk to about 10 different places top eat, almost in the middle of Scottsdale, good feel. I would stay again. Bikers you can park right in front of your door. Great water pressure almost shocking for a hotel.

No issues at all. Continental breakfast good. Pool area nice with long hours availability. Housekeeping staff nice.

Within 2 hrs of arriving the air conditioner blew its circuit twice. I had to call twice for the TV not working, the phone had a button for front desk but you only get a busy signal you have to dial O. But none tells you this. To top things off upon leaving in the am for the airport I needed extra checkout time and the front desk clerk denied me. Even after all the problems I had earlier to which she was not aware of

Comfortable room, convenient mini fridge and microwave, within walking distance to many great restaurants and galleries. The included breakfast was decent. The only downside is that it didn't look like the room had been vacuumed, but aside from that it seemed quite clean. Would stay again for sure!

What a great location for a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel. You are right on the edge of all the shops and eateries of Old Town Scottsdale. Maybe 3 or 4 blocks walk one way will cover most everything. I would highly recommend a day at the Zoo if you have time.

We were visiting Scottsdale for the week and decided to stay in Old Town. For the price this hotel met all of our needs. It's in a good location and walking distance to Starbucks and restaurants/ bars. The room was clean and bathroom updated. There was complimentary breakfast which included cereals, bagels, fruit, coffee, juice and yogurt. Staff was very friendly including housekeeping.

Great value perfect location for a night out in Old Town

The hotel was in the heart of Old Scottsdale and within walking distance of all the action. It's not 5 Star accommodations but met my expectations.

This is a great hotel for value and location. Easy access to downtown Scottsdale, nightlife and dining.

Best part is the continental breakfast!! The coffee was mediocre. The breakfast helped save us money each day. The room was ok but thankfully it was renovated. The other good part about the room was there was a small fridge for me to keep milk for my daughter.

The hotel was in a great location and the staff was awesome! Close to restaurants and nightlife,

We stayed for two nights and we were happy with the hotel. The location ist just great and we could walk easily to the closeby center area. After the hot days we could jump into the pool and cool off. It is nothing very fancy but value for money at a good location.

Great location and value for your money. Room was nice.

This hotel is at the perfect location in old town Scottsdale. It's walking distance from restaurants, bars and shops. The hotel itself is average, but was fine for just a one night stay.

This was just a quick stopover, to give our relatives from overseas a taste of old town. We were able to leave our cars at the hotel and wander around at will. Had lunch at Cowboy Ciao, and then back in car for trip to Sedona for a few days.

My stay was fine. I really didn't have any issues. It was quiet, clean, and affordable for being so close to downtown Scottsdale. This is my go-to hotel when I stay in Scottsdale.

This hotel was convenient comfortable and clean. The hotel staff were very pleasant, in particular the lady working the evening shift. she always welcomed me back by using my first name when I arrived to check in.
