“A Rare Find!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor, rated #3 so booked in initially for 5 nights. After seeing the property and staying 1 night, we added another night to our stay. This place is absolutely amazing - and especially considering their "off season" rates. Their prices were less than we would have paid for a run-of-the-mill chain motel.

We had a king suite, with a separate bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen (granite and stainless steel) and a living room. The kitchen is fully stocked, so all we had to bring was our food. The grounds are lovely-beautiful pool and hot tub, with a lanai and bar. A full buffet breakfast was included every morning in the price of our room, as well as an evening reception with wine, beer and hot AND cold appetizers. It puts Embassy Suites Manager's reception to shame! You could easily have your evening meal here.

The staff was very professional and helpful with directions, etc. The Shops of Gainey was a high end strip mall right behind the hotel with cute shops and restaurants. We were an easy drive to all the major highways as well as the touristy things to do in Scottsdale.

Frankly, we were a little concerned when we booked the Gainey Suites because of the great price and beautiful pictures of the grounds and rooms. You know how sometimes the hotel's websites' pictures are not what you see when you actually arrive? This time their pictures did not even do it justice. We're glad we trusted the Trip Advisor ratings, and we will definitely be back the next time we are in Scottsdale and will recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: We asked for a 2nd or 3rd floor room facing the pool - it was beautiful, and quiet. We did notice, h...

We stayed two nights at this hotel and picked it due to the good ratings from trip advisor. Let me tell you, the ratings were right on spot for this property. We had a king suite with a full kitchen and it was impeccable. Everything was excellent and the bed was fit for a king! A couple could actually use the room for an apartment. If in the area again this would be our choice place to stay.

We booked two stays here at the beginning and end of our vacation due to TripAdvisor reviews. What a great find! Location, accommodations, food, staff, and amenities are all top class. Locationwise, the hotel is an easy drive to Taliesin West, the Desert Botanical Garden, downtown Scottsdale, golf courses, and the airport. The Shops of Gainey within walking distance had several restaurants plus shopping. Our exterior rooms were quiet and spacious. Staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. The common areas were enticing and comfortable. The hotel has very clean, newer model laundry facilities as well.

Every morning we enjoyed full, hearty breakfasts in the common area overlooking the central courtyard, pool, and firewells. The
afternoon happy hour featured hot appetizers and drinks. Menus for both rotated through the week. All were tasty and the ambience was pleasant. The only distraction was the birds seeking any unattended food.

During our first stay, we had a Studio King Suite (227) with a full kitchen area (stove, full refrigerator, dishwasher, dishes...), living area with desk, couch, big screen TV, shared with a sleeping area featuring a king bed with pillowtop mattress and full bath. During our second stay, we tried a One bedroom King Suite (259) which seemed to be the same as the studio king with a wall dividing the living and sleeping area. Comparing the two suites, we liked the studio better with its open space. The one bedroom suite seemed a bit confined due to the smaller rooms. However, the one-bedroom suite did have more drawer storage space and two televisions. Both were comfortable so its a matter of personal preference.

All in all, thanks to our relaxed, comfortable stay at the Gainey Suites, I'm looking forward to another stay when I return to Scottsdale. As an added bonus, this hotel is reasonably priced without a resort fee added on!

We are staying here for a family getaway. Wanted a place to give us a bit more experience than a typical hotel but didn't want something so over the top as to require a resort fee. The experience here can't be beat for the price. The clean, updated, appointed two queens suite separates the bedroom with a door which is a nice amenity, and having a full kitchen with a stove is more useful than I imagined (counter space alone is a benefit when you travel with a wife and kids). Happy hour was such a nice touch with free beer and food, and creates a social atmosphere most hotels don't offer. But the service puts it over the top. I watched a staff member diligently clean each tiki torch before prepping them with fuel and lighting them for the evening. The bartender made us some perfect piña coladas for poolside and gave us a wooden tray for carrying the drinks and free snacks he added in. When I discovered that people walking in the room above me kept me from getting a good nights sleep, Scott at the front desk didn't hesitate to immediately offer me a new upstairs room, ready to move in at my leisure. What a wonderful place. We will return frequently and recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room if you get a suite; or be prepared to sleep inside a bass tube of footsteps fro...

We stayed at the Gainey Suites Hotel form May 31st-June 3rd 2014. From the moment we entered we knew we made the right choice.
It is a very clean hotel. The Lobby was very cozy and welcoming.
The room was very, very clean. I am a germ-phobia person and very particular about hotels. This one was exceptionally clean. The linen was fresh and looked as if they were ironed before placed on bed. The bed was very comfortable and slept well after a day of touring.
You should request a room that overlooks the pool and courtyard. We loved the view at night.

The breakfast was more than we expected with lots of fresh fruit, and an above average selection of hot and cold choices. We especially liked the selection of hot dishes....sausages, bacon, egg burritos. Also if you are a starbuck's coffee drinker, they serve a house blend.
The reception in the evening became our supper. Every night was a different choice like meatballs marinara, chicken stirfry and lots of salads and chips and dip. If you drink there is free beer and wine to go with meal.
To top it off, we had their delicious chocolate chip cookie which you get from the front desk.
Gainey Suites made our stay a memorable one.
PS: The pool was nice and warm. Our grandkids love the courtyard!

Room Tip: Request a pool or courtyard view (cost more).

I stay in Scottsdale frequently. I decided to try Gainey Suites because of the trip advisor great reviews. When I called Gainey Suites to make my reservation I was really surprised by the low
rate. I almost did not book because I just could not believe the low price. I did book and absolutely loved this hotel. Nice room, great breakfast, and the evening social was enough food for dinner. Room was nice, beds great and the area was very quiet.
I will always stay at this hotel now.

To repeat the other reviews...this is a remarkable value in North Scottsdale! The room suites are above average in size and decor. The grounds are attractive. The patio is particularly nice for a hotel of this size and style. The included breakfasts and happy hour are strides ahead of a Hampton or Embassy Suites and are really what makes this such a terrific value. The pool is more of an average experience, but it is decent and there are poolside towels, cabanas and an adequate number of chairs. The staff is pleasant and responsive: our flusher broke, and the repair person was at our door instantly. Free parking. The setting is back from Scottsdale Road--no sense of Scottsdale Road traffic--and behind an upscale shopping center with several dining options.
