“Wow - wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Last night we did a last minute trip from Phoenix to Payson to celebrate a friend's birthday. The room was absolutely wonderful! The room looked brand new and huge. I have trouble sleeping and the bed was great. Food was also a wonderful surprise. We had dinner in the bar area and had the best BLT ever. Great service too. Check in was quick and woman was very friendly. Would highly recommend and will be staying here again.

It was a very nice stay. The rooms were great and very clean. The people were friendly. I unlike all of the other reviews wasn't offered any discounts or vouchers for free stay. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for specials they don't volunteer them...

We landed in Payson after a great scenic (but long) day on the Apache Trail. We decided to stay here because it had food, lodging, entertainment & beer all in one location. Got the stay & play package for $99 which was well worth it: after freeplay, discounts & vouchers we got almost $50 back. The rooms are huge, modern & very clean. Beds are very comfortable & they had extra pillows.

The rooms are very clean and large with a separate living area with TV, mini-fridge and sleeper sofa. The beds are very comfortable with nice pillows. Join the players club at the casino and you get a special (Stay and Play) package that will discount the room rate along with receiving a coupon book that gives you food discounts, $15 breakfast voucher and $20 free casino play! The price of the room is comparable to other motels in the area once the freebies are discounted from the room price and the rooms are much larger and nicer than any other similar accommodations in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same with elevator access

To escape the hundred-plus heat in most of AZ, try the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino in Payson. It's located in the pine country along the base of the Mogollon Rim at an altitude where it still gets warm, but not hot, and is low enough that you don't require supplementary oxygen.

Mazatzal (easily remembered as "mad-as-hell" spoken rapidly) serves up the usual Indian casino gambling devices, with the usual Indian casino odds. Chances of winning are much better than the lottery, but the machines can gobble up the bucks at a rate you have to be careful with. Blackjack and poker are offered, but during the week when we visited, were not very popular. I played in one of each kind of tournament and although I didn't win, the company was probably the friendliest bunch I've ever played with anywhere.

In fact, all of the casino's employees were especially friendly and helpful

We took the play-and-stay package at $99 a night for three weekday nights, that included $20 in free play, breakfast, and a "fun" book each day, . The "fun book offered 20% discounts at the restaurant and gift shop, $5 blackjack match play, and some of the other usual "fun" book stuff. The gift shop offers some excellent prices on Apache & Navajo jewelry, including peridot from the San Carlos Apache Reservation.

The room couldn't have been much better for the price: a living room separated by a door from the bedroom, each room with its own flat screen TV & complete viewing offerings.

The only complaint is a relatively minor one. The parking is inconvenient and we had to circle the wagons a couple of times to determine where, exactly, registration and check-in was located. There were no signs and appearances suggest that the main desk should be located at the opposite end of the building. Some sort of marking such as "Park here to register" is certainly needed.

Room Tip: We saw only one room plan, indicating the rooms must all be the same.
