Great location and tucked away in a good spot with trees grass nice views. Quite and comfortable. Great rooms for the money.

While aging, the facility has service and location to boast about.

This is a wonderful property tucked away in a natural setting next to great restaurants and shops. Would stay again!

The staff at the Smoke Tree Bungalows could not be more friendly and accommodating. When I checked in, they had already prepared a BBQ smoker full of Brisket ready for incoming guests. They paired this with 2 buckets full of ice and complimentary beer, water and soda. I feel now that they are my close friends. Whenever I return to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, I will always stay at the Smoke Tree Bungalows. Thank you!

I liked that they are bungalows and each room had a small patio area. The area around the hotel is great. We enjoyed our experience at this hotel

Nice old style resort - lovely site with lots of trees & shade -convenient to shopping. But ... excercise room was sub-standard - spa that was mentioned did not exist - a little rundown.

I stay here every trip to Phoenix. Not your average hotel. Takes you back to an earlier era and offers a serene escape from the concrete and hustle of your typical accommodation.

I was in town for Thanksgiving with family and friends, who were almost all within 7 minutes! I like retro, non-chain hotels, so this 60's era, family-owned place appealed to me when I saw it online. That said, I was very glad to see their updates, making this a comfortable, modern and attractive place to stay. I loved eating breakfasts on my patio overlooking the beautiful grounds. The staff was incredibly responsive (even to a query in the wee hours). I will definitely return.

Don't be put off by the abandoned building look of this place from the street. Once on the grounds you will pleasantly surprised by this quiet, small desert resort located in the heart of Scotsdale. The grounds are spacious and very pleasant with real trees and grass ( not so common in AZ). There is a reasonably large heated pool. The property is also an informal sculpture garden with modernist metal art pieces, some fairly large, to surprise you on your walks. My room was quite spacious with a comfortable bed and tasteful current furnishings that would look fine in a home. The room also had 2 comfy chairs a large table, large flat screen tv, frig and microwave. All in all very pleasant, clean and comfortable. All in all a very agreeable place to stay that was an exceptional value. Located on block off Scotsdale road and a very short walk to a shopping center with gourmet food store and Trader Joes along with eateries and shops.

Comfortable room, pleasant setting, friendly staff and perfect location for me...near stores and restaurants. I'll be back.

Smoke Tree Resort was a nice, small, and secluded resort. The grounds had beautiful landscaping and the rooms/bungalows were bigger then what you would find at a name brand resort. Rooms were nicely decorated, staff was very friendly, and the resort was in a GREAT location.

really have no concerns. it was quit and peaceful. I plan on staying there on my next visit

Staff was warm and friendly. Nice peaceful location and a great value for the price

Very nice, quite, large rooms. Huge closet. Great for a family to spend a week at. Really close to downtown scottsdale with alot of shops and great foods. Even a Casino 10 mins away! Next time I visit the Phoenix area THIS is where I plan to stay. We just loved the peace and quite.

This hotel is extremely well located with special grocery store, restuarants, shopping and bus stop on main highway that gets you to Old Town and Shopping Mall. Nice experience and much cheaper than others in the area. Clean and comfortable. Padded chairs to lay out by the pool and beautiful, natural scenery and foilage.

This is a classic resort. If you are looking for fancy pools and $20 drinks it isn't for you. If you are looking for a clean,modern room, with lots of space and a garden with table outside your room. It is perfectly laid out and in the perfect location in Scottsdale: hotels in the area are twice as expensive. Family run by the Williams brothers who are there to help you. I am a fan indeed.

the bungalow was a single room with a patio door as an entry door. The room has a fridge, microwave, flat screen TV, a desk with two chairs, two armchairs, iron board with an iron, a coffee maker (12 cups). The bathroom was clean. Shower head was a little low (and I'm not a tall guy: 5'7), but that was not a big deal. The glass patio door opens to a nice sort-of private patio with a patio table and two chairs. Bushes around serve as a green fence. Overall, I was really pleased.

Excellent on multiple levels, great customer service as the hotel is family owned and they take pride in their hotel. Place seemed like an oasis of green grass in the desert and close to all the main attractions in Scottsdale(Long walk or short drive)

My stay at The Smoke Tree was absolutely perfect. The price can't be beat for such a quaint place. Located just barley inside Paradise Valley, The Tree gives you access to all that Scottsdale has to offer, looking forward to my week here for Spring Training!!

Absolutely love the staff at this place and the property has lots of potential. Unfortunately, other than the flat screen TV, it looked like very little has been done to update this place since the 1970s. The restaurant has closed down, and there's no internet or modern amenities of any type. In fact, the property is for sale. There didn't appear to be anyone else staying at the place, so if you're looking for privacy and a quiet place to drop off the grid this is a good option. We also enjoyed having the mini kitchen in the room. I hope for the best for this place, but I fear the next time I return to Paradise Valley it won't be open anymore.
