Recent guest reviews

Stayed for 8 nights. Pleasant staff. Walking distance to shopping and dining. Enjoyed our stay.

Hotel will work if you’re on a budget, location was good.

Very friendly staff, clean basic motel room, quiet, pool and hot tub. stayed there one week and found the room very comfortable

Our doors deadbolt would get stuck and the door wouldn't lock unless you pulled it really hard. So I checked it everytime we left. The beds were old but clean. This all being said we felt safe and liked being walking distance from everything.

I was unable to stay at this Howard Johnson's but I did want to make sure to put in a review as the hotel staff, in particular the manager, Christy, were extremely helpful when they didn't have to be! I had a problem that I considered to be serious, and in which I shared in the responsibility. She was professional, courteous, followed-up and communicated well. I really appreciate it and would absolutely stay there for my next stay in Phoenix!

Very nice room and good location. Room remodeled and lovely. Easy checkin our room was ready early which was nice. Would stay there again.

Very pleasant environment with caring staff. Room service was based on customer needs which was not intrusive on guests. The pool area was kept spotless and open from 7 A.M. until 10 P.M. which accommodated the guest needs.

For the money, this place is very good, comparable to a $100 place. The staff is very attentive to needs.

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.
