“Great Stay, would go back again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2010

I think other reviews hit this perfectly, great place to stay with young kids. The suites are roomy and clean, pool is nice, staff VERY helpful. We will stay here anytime we go to Scottsdale with our kids. Keep up the good work.

We just returned from a seven night stay at the Gainey Suites Resort and it by far exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at some of the larger resorts in Scottsdale and this was our favorite stay to date. Our King bedroom suite was immaculate and well appointed. Housekeeping was prompt and efficient. Our suite was never lacking. The front desk ,Lisa, Crystal, Nick all are friendly and very helpful. The resort also has a shuttle that many found useful for trips withing five miles before 6:00p.m. The hotel manager, Rich was really a hands on employee. He kept things running smooth and was very concerned about the guests needs. Morning breakfast is more then sufficient. The main item changed daily from Eggs, pancakes, egg croissants, chorizo and egg tortillas,etc along cereal, toast, bagels, fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, juices, Starbucks coffee. The evening reception was absolutely unbelievable. Beer, wine or pop served with an item that also changed daily. Hot dogs, tacos, egg roll, pizza, etc. The food and beverage manager, Enrique and his staff deserve great praise. The pool and grounds are well kept and very beautiful. If you don't belive me, ask the "house ducks" that visit nightly for the evening reception. Free internet, parking close to your room, cookies from the bakery, a newspaper and a great location. Unfortunately, we did not use the work out room, but others did and it was well equipped and clean. I did use the shuttle to go to the Spa which is not part of the resort, but they will honor membership charges if you are staying at the Gainey Suites. I know I'm forgetting something or someone. To sum it up, if you are looking for a place to stay that is clean, comfortable, modern, affordable with a great staff and great location, Gainey Suites would be the place to stay. If you are looking for room service, valet parking, taking elevators to high floor rooms, lots of tipping, resort fees, then go elsewhere.

The room was more like a one bedroom apt. with all amenities. I especially liked the comfort of a good mattress and high quality linens and towels. My room overlooked the inner garden and pool and was quiet. I could have slept all day if time permitted. I also loved the location of the hotel which is a very s hort walk to restaurants and shops of the highest caliber. This is truly a "hidden gem" in Scottsdale and I would definitely return.

This hotel was not worth going to again.

The free breakfast must be put in their price for the nighty rate, since the room is overpriced. Breakfast was good - hot and cold items, and saved us the time of going somewhere else. We never attended the beer and wine reception, but they must put that in the nightly rate too.

The suite was dingy, small and outdated. The dishes I pulled out of the kitchenette were dirty - meaning they were not washed at all - grease and food was still on them! I just didn't trust the cleanliness of this place. The "workout" room was small and felt like it was in the basement of a rotted out apartment building.

The hotel has a deal with the Gainey Health Club and spa within walking distance (about 5 minutes). The spa was beautifully done, with a small hot tub, sauna and steam room in the women's room, but not a place to spend the day. The pool was not a leisure pool, but it was outside and more of a lap pool (great, if that is what you are looking for!). The Health Club had a TON of classes - the yoga was good for a health club yoga class!

Good thing we only used the hotel for sleeping and breakfast.

If you are looking for a small hotel with all the amenities of a huge resort, but on a smaller scale and at a fraction of the cost, then choose Gainey Suites. It is right in the heart of Scottsdale but secluded from the hustle/bustle. The accommodations (we had a 2 bedroom suite) were excellent and they were the cleanest if not the cleanest accommodations we have ever stayed and we have stayed in some of the best resorts in North America, including the Phoenician and the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess!
All the staff, from the reception to the cleaning staff, were always so accommodating and knowledgeable!
The free breakfast every morning in the Hearth Room was an excellent way to start the day. The items served were so varied that we ate there almost every morning during our stay. Likewise the manager's reception every evening -- again excellent.
The grounds and pool area so enticing for relaxation!
All the little extra touches like the teddy bears in the room, the chocolate chip cookies from Paradise Bakery, just superb! Also the location is excellent especially with the Gainey Village right next door -- with the variety of restaurants we were able to walk to dinner every night. We would recommend this hotel to everyone!

Our room was very clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and the food was excellent! I loved the happy hour offered everyday. The pool and courtyard area were beautiful and relaxing. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night before catching our flight home. We read all the great reviews and figured this is it! It was very nice, but I can't imagine staying there for more than one night. What would one do? The pool is very pretty. The appetizers at dinner and breakfast in the morning were good. Cookies at front desk - yummy. Bedrooms tiny, but we had a suite, so there was a living area. Everything is very clean and neat.
