Went in late may the rooms were fantastic. . Cost $55 a night for a 2 room suite . It was like a small apartment ! I all ways stay at best westerns even in the uk and Europe but this is the best best western ever . I think it retails at $200 a night in the cooler months but only bad people like us go to the valley of the sun in summer!!! This motel does it all it's fully equipped even the kitchen if bigger than the one at home in out house!! You could live here and it's absolutely spotless . Free breakfast too what more do you need?

I hosted an event for 3 days. Everything about this hotel was in the Excellent category from the top management who helped organize this event to the front desk staff, the chef, wait staff, bar tender & housekeeping. The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable and all rooms had refrigerators and microwaves. The complete breakfast, complimentary, was wonderful as were the two dinners we arranged to have at the hotel.

This hotel is located by the local airport, but I didn't hear any airplane noise while I was there. Service was excellent. The rooms surround a courtyard with a pool and palm trees. The rooms are typical for Best Western and mine was a King suite. I'm not sure if they are all suites. Breakfast is included and is again the typical Best Western breakfast with egg and protein (sausage or bacon) and pancakes depending on the day. The dining room was sunny and there was plenty of seating and great service clearing the tables. I found the location perfect for what I wanted to see: Taliesen West and Old Scottsdale. I did have a car and parking was complimentary.
This hotel, although typical Best Western, was good value for the money and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms face the central courtyard so they all have same views.

This is our third or forth visit here over the last 6 years or so. We stay here because it is at least 100 dollars cheaper per night than staying at the resort down the road where my conferences are always at. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast is excellent and the service is great. I walk to my conference meetings everyday. Great to get outside after the long Michigan winters. The shopping nearby at the Kierland and Quarters shopping centers is excellent and also a short walk from the motel. The pool is kept clean and is never crowded at the motel. I would highly recommend this motel.

This hotel was adequate for the money paid. Room was a good size, except for the bathroom which was really tiny. The room was dated but clean and comfortable enough. It is right next to the Scottsdale Airport, so it was noisy around the pool area but quiet inside the room for sleeping. The pool was small and smoking is allowed on the deck which is not appreciated. The free breakfast was mediocre at best.

Thank you for giving us some feedback here on Trip Advisor. I am glad you found our property worth the rate you were given. I do on the other hand apologize for the smoking at the pool. We are a non smoking hotel. All though we don't allow smoking in the rooms per say, smoking IS allowed within 50 feet from any entrance per Arizona Statute. If you do choose to stay at our property in the future, please let us know if the smoking at the pool becomes an issue and ill make sure to make an effort to ask them to smoke else where. Thanks again for your business and we hope to see back soon!

we were pleased to find an affordable hotel in the Scottsdale area. The hotel was close to Old Town Scottsdale and there was adequate shopping nearby. We liked the fact that the hotel surrounded the pool and hot tub and there was lots of grass in the center.

We stayed at this hotel with several family members and friends that were in Scottsdale for a wedding. The hotel was conveniently located near food and shopping. Both were within easy walking range, but the shuttle was also available. The beds were comfortable and seemingly very well insulated. I could never hear the "pool parties" from my third floor room. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. We would definitely stay again, if in the area.
