“Basic, but more than sufficient for a short break in Scottsdale”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Heading says it all really- was initially very disappointed that no bar/ restaurant was on site but there are plenty of things really close (big supermarket across the road, Denny's, pizza place, Subway, couple of bars within 5 mins walk) plus only $5- $10 in a cab to Scottsdale Old Town.

Room was lovely, extremely clean, FAB bed (really lovely sheets/ pillows etc) and a great whirlpool bath. Lovely powerful shower, massive tv (though this wasn't switched on). Pool area great, very clean and a magnificent sun-trap.

Probably best point for me were the absolutely terrific staff. George, Morgan and Robert were all extremely helpful, knowledgeable about the area and more than happy to help with arrangements/ phoning cabs etc.

Negatives? Only one TINY one. Shower curtain didn't reach the floor so bathroom floor had tendency to flood (no real drainage etc on floor- used a lot of towels to mop up, which was a waste).

Room Tip: We were in 118, really nice. This is one hotel where I don't think I'd like a pool view- 118...

Well this hotel was certainly a nice little surprise! It's a little tucked in, but just off Hayden Rd with plenty of choices for nightlife, restaurants and spending a little time by the pool of course! Not to mention it is blocks from the hub of Old Town Scottsdale where you can view art galleries, grab some ice cream or set out to try the overwhelming array of everything from fine dining to sports bars and all just minutes down the street! Stephanie was so nice to show me my accommodations and helping me request a poolside view, if possible. And Brian the General Manager totally helped me work out a schedule conflict that came up! All and all, a great team, hotel and location! Great job, guys! Thank you so much for making my experience a pleasant one!!

There are many hotels in Scottsdale in this price range - you can make a much better choice. We reserved a king delux and checked in about 5 p.m. Noticed a "roar" that I originally thought was coming from the air conditioner. Later discovered it was not but instead was coming from their in-house laundry RIGHT NEXT DOOR. I called and told the desk the noise was very loud since it vented right outside our window and was sharing a wall - which slightly vibrated when the dryers were being used. She told me there was nothing she do but that all activity in the laundry room ceased at 9 p.m. I told her we were very tired after driving all day and she said she would see if they could stop earlier and since we had already hauled all our stuff in - we did not ask for a different room. Guess what - at 9 pm the noise didn't stop. I went to the employee folding laundry and asked how long she was working. She said until 11 pm and, again, there was nothing she could do about it. Again I called the desk - same answer - sorry, but there's nothing we can do about it. Dryers made a slight vibration in the bed which shared the same wall and they also produced a high pitched whistle like the filters needed cleaning. POINT BEING - how can they in all good conscious rent out a room that they know full well has the laundry next door operating from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.? There were at least 3 rooms compromised by this arrangement. I'm sure they put us there because we booked through Travelocity and prepaid - so we couldn't just leave without loosing our money. Also - the room in general was very noisy. Anyone walking outside and talking was heard perfectly in our room - as well as the TV from next door. I could see right outside at the base of the door.

We only had the chance to stay one night for a wedding in Phoenix so we took in as much as we could the pool was nice althrough a lot smaller than the pictures show but over all very nice we booked a delux whirlpool the only issue we had it was a bit close to our bed and it had carpet around it I personally didnt think that was a bright decision but thats just me but as for the cleaness of the room very well done the bed was very comfy we did have a issue with our door key when we checked in but Stephanie at the front desk rescanned it and it worked after that, also Stephanie was very quick to get us to our room she was very nice our room was looking over at a park very nice in the morning defiantly staying again.

i stay here every time i am in the pheonix area.
it's easy to find, close to fun areas, and the beds are crazy comfortable!!!
the pool has plenty of lounge chairs so you don't feel like you need to get out there and claim your spot.
feels like a 5 star with the price of a 3 star.
i will always be back!!!!

This was a 3rd stop in Scottsdale on our trip across the west coast. This being the second hotel we had stayed at within a week span, both dropped the ball tremendously. The staff that checked us in was kind and welcoming, no complaints there. But upon entering our room we noticed a smell, we could not put a finger on it at first but after inspecting the room we noticed our trash had not been taken out. We placed it outside of room and luckily there was a liner in the can. Ok..so not the biggest issue in the world but still, nasty smell in our room for the night. Our wifi was a huge joke, I am not sure why this place is raving about about it - it was not user friendly, hit and miss, it kept dropping us and we have work to do! This is the second time in Scottsdale a resort has failed to provide good wifi access. The bed was not comfortable though we liked the sheets. It kind of sank in the middle and we could not get comfortable. The sheets also smelled like they had not been cleaned, in the morning we left a note for housekeeping to change them - lord only knows if they did. I got the vibe from the place that the staff was not happy, they were helpful but not one person smiled at us from check in to check out. I would not stay here again and would not recommend it to my worst enemy
