“Excellent hotel but the casino restaurant attached is smoky”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

An excellent hotel with very good value for money paid. Only con is not the hotel's fault. The attached restaurant is part of a casino with very poor ventilation. To get to the restaurant you pass through a cigarette smoke filled casino and the restaurant is also filled with smoke drifting in from the casino. The all you can eat buffet looked generous and tasty with lots of meats and a fresh salad bar but the presence of cigarette smoke made it unappetizing. We left with a take out order of fish & chips which was quite good. No breakfast was included in the room price.

It is the only hotel around for miles .It is far too expensive . The Scottsdale best western is the same price and is modern and gorgeous .The employees at this hotel and casino are ok they are nice but not a catering as other best westerns and casinos...
In the casino they never come around to offer drinks you have to track them down. They know they don't have to go out of there way because there is nothing else around ...

Room Tip: Its better then nothing because its the only thing around for 75 miles...

We really enjoyed our stay. There was several things going on this weekend with the team roping, of course the casino and with the golf being there,which we did not play this time, you can't go wrong. All the staff, from the desk attendants to the casino people to the restaurant host and staff where at the top of their game. We will differently be back.

Took my sister and daughter for a relaxing 1 day trip. The hotel had the most comfortable beds I had ever seen in a hotel. Staff very friendly. The interior of the room was immaculate. Strongly suggest any staying in the area to stay here!

We weren't sure what we were going to find when we arrived. This hotel is on the reservation attached to a casino. It is one of the few chain hotels near Globe Arizona. We asked for a quiet room on the top floor away from the elevator and got a great room. While we did not use it, they have beautiful large outdoor pool and there were people in it until pool closing around 10 pm. We overlooked the pool, but could not hear any noise. We ate dinner and breakfast in the casino: the food was great and very reasonable. We definitely have this hotel on our list to frequent the next time we are in the area.

We love playing slots and video games in the Apache Gold Casino next door, then getting a good nights sleep in this Best Western. The staff was very helpful arranging a room close to the exit as my wife has difficulty in walking long distances. The room was spotless with luxurious wide screen T.V.. We really enjoyed our mini two day getaway. Don't miss out on a great experience.

The hotel has been remodeled and they did a very good job. Rooms are sizable and no longer smell of smoke. The check in and check out procedure was extremely easy and the staff was very helpful. We had a great golf package that included two night stay. Free each day we received 2 days of golf, a $10 food chit, $5 drink coupon, breakfast and some gambling credits. The restaurant was average and prices were within the food chit range along with the alcohol. It is the only place to eat unless you drive back to Globe. For those that gamble, the machines seemed more friendly than most casinos in AZ. The golf course, which had been closed at one time, is improving. Tee boxes and green are in good shape. The fairways and rough need work,but its was still early in the year. BTW, the course is NOT easy, lots of hazards!

Room Tip: Must ask for non smoking
