We took a quick, 24-hour trip to Show Low and all we needed was a place to sleep and shower and this fit the bill inexpensively. The manager was courteous and check-in was seamless. The room was clean, although small and basic, A nice little motel.

Greatest Value On The Mountain!!! Neal And Sandi are so very respectful and maticulous Hosts! We Totally LOVE the location, conveniences, rates, service, facility, comfort and respect that we get EVERY TIME we are there. When we go see my brother Jay and his wife Joyce in White Mountain Lake, we always stay at the Kiva. These folks really care about you and they are not dirty at all! I make a phone call and they are ready to save me a bed. They are always cheerful and happy to see us. They are a remarkable family with a real strong family and american set of values and I truly recommend to absolutely everyone to stay at the Kiva. There is not a better value in ShowLow or any of the surrounding communities. This place fills up first and stays occupied the longest for many reasons. The beds are great, the coffee makers work well as well as the refrigerator, heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, TV and the decor is excellent. He just put new roofing on the west building and he is always patching, cleaning and maintaining all of his facility. If there is any negative feedback on this site about these fine people and their facility then my take and response is "The negative responders are probably either corporate yuppies that live on caviar or they are in direct competition with the Kiva and can't compete!" This is NOT THE PHONECIAN or BILTMORE, this IS THE NICEST BED FOR THE MONEY ANYWHERE IN NORTHEASTERN ARIZONA!!!!! If you don't agree, you are a fool with your money!

We had been to Phoenix to pick up a trailer and decided to take a different route home to Texas. We left Phoenix late afternoon, decided to go through Globe as an alternative route. Haha We had NO idea what we were getting into. We travelled that road in pitch dark, pulling a heavy trailer all the way down, no way to turn around and go back. By the time we made it to Show Low, we were exhausted and looking for somewhere to stay. There was snow on the ground and we needed somewhere just off the road with an area to park the trailer. Pulled in at Kiva Motel for the convenience. The desk clerk was not particularly friendly but it was night-time and we were a little frazzled. Nothing special about the room, no blow dryer for the wife, and the room was very cold, but the clerk gave us extra blankets and pillows. The room was fairly large and the heater didn't quite keep up, but we were fine with the extra blankets. The bed was fantastic! Room was outdated but clean, so no real issues there. Excellent value for the night. I'd stay there again if passing through.

I have stayed at the Kiva many times over the past 6 years, and they have always provided the best value for the money. The owner (Neal) has really done an excellent job of keeping the property updated and in an excellent state of repair. From the new granite counter tops, fridges and microwaves, blow dryers and coffee makers to the great beds and furniture everything is top notch. And all for a price that is VERY affordable. I always look forward to my stays with Neal and Sandi.
