First of all, let me say that there is nothing really wrong with this place. It's a perfectly lovely little Best Western. We pulled in around an hour before sunset and were treated to the most amazing sunset off the red rocks and a gorgeous moonrise - right outside our room door.
We got a room on the first floor. I also don't think this is accessible by elevator at all, although there is a nice, gently sloping walkway down to the room as well as stairs. We pulled the truck as near to the room as we could (just off the mail road) to unload and they parked back up top.
The property is a terraced place in the side of a hill. The first floor might feel like some to be a basement but it's actually more of a walkout. We checked to see if there were any more rooms on the 3rd floor because of the view but there were no rooms available so we stayed in our first floor room.
-It's a really nice hotel. The rooms are clean and the TV is huge and new.
-Even from the first floor we could see the hills and cliffs. It's beautiful. Also, I suspect that the first floor is way more PRIVATE! People are always up in front of the second and third floor rooms sitting on the terraces and taking pictures, chatting and laughing. It's a jovial atmosphere, right outside your door.
-The pool and hot tub are lovely. Towels are in your room in the closet (for the pool) and in a room of two double beds there are only three towels...we only stayed one night so we don't know if they replace them or not.
-Front desk is friendly and helpful
-They have room-service - although we didn't try it, they'll bring a full linen service to your terrace table if you like and you can dine alfresco on some pretty decent sounding nosh.
-The beds are hard and sorta cheap feeling - I guess when most hotels are going all pillow-top and luxury it's a glaring difference when you're on a bed that is a little tired. Plus I hated the polyester duvet cover. But that's just me. It's not a reason to lose a star or anything.
-The first floor does feel a little basement-ish.
-OMG the A/C fan thing is like someone is firing up a jet plane in the room every ten minutes or so. Once asleep it was fine and didn't wake us, but we had to wait until the kids were fast asleep before we could turn the fan on. This could have been negated totally had we been able to open the window...it was October and cool enough at night.
-The room is directly below the terrace above. At first I thought that was great since you wouldn't hear the people in the room above you, but then I realized that you heard all the traffic on the terrace instead - read luggage, high heals, running, chairs scraping across the pavement. Again, it's not like it's super loud, but maybe others are more sensitive to this that I am so I thought I would let people know.
All in all, I would stay here again but on an upper level and see if it makes a difference. It's a pretty nice Best Western and the staff are wonderful. I slept well and enjoyed the view and watching the bats hunt against the dusk sky as we spent the evening outside. I would recommend it.
