“A Wonder in Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

This was our 2nd stay here to attend Texas Rangers Spring Training. (Go Rangers) The beds are comfortable. The hospitality if wonderful. All the staff, from Mara and Kristin in the business off to the desks attendants and housekeeping saw to all of our needs. The Breakfast bar which was great last year was improved this year just by moving tables to the patio and re-arranging the set up area of the food. Outstanding job! You have to go early to avoid the rush because food goes fast and it is hard to keep everything hot and fresh. An added plus is the 24/7 coffee, tea and water available. The pool and hot tub were always well attended by families and the area was well kept. There are many good restaurants in the area, especially Tivoli Gardens across the street. Caters to the senior crowd, but good food and the music was great for dancing. We plan on staying here next year again on our annual trek to watch our team.

My family stayed here to attend baseball Spring Training games in Surprise. This was our second stay and we would stay again. The two-room suites have very comfortable beds, and the friendly staff was exceptional. Only a few minutes from the stadium and several restaurants. But - the continental breakfast is below average and crowded. My advise is to skip it and eat at the inexpensive restaurant (Tivoli Gardens) directly across the street which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Perhaps the hotel is due for a re-design and updates but it's still a good value.

We visted Surpise to spend time with friends who had recently moved there.
As we always prefer hotels to staying in the houses of friends, we looked around and found the Windmill.
The property is very good and really clean.
The front desk staff were excellent at check in and at departure.
The breakfast is highly touted but in fact is mediocre at best.
There is an outdoor pool and grassy area, but as we were there in early March it was not really an attraction.
The price for the hotel seemed very high when compared to the facilities offered. This could, I think, have been because it was at the begining of spring training.

This is our fourth time we have stayed here in the last decade and we have never been disappointed. The standards of hospitality and cleanliness have remained constant in all our stays, which is nice when you are a repeat cutomer and especially when taking into account the downturn in the American economy since 2008. Some of the best features include the really welcoming lobby with fresh apples, the room layout , the quality of food in the breakfast room, the centrally-located coffee station on the first floor, and the well-maintained pool area. A separate business area allows one to maintain contact with home. A great central place that attracts Cactus League baseball fans as well as a good location for numerous golf courses within easy access. Note: Go to reception at 4 PM and they will give you a fresh-baked cookie!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra if you want a patio room with easy pool access.

We arrived on Feb 23 which fortunately is a mild time of the year. We finally got our room after Orbitz put my last name first first name last and the front desk had trouble locating our reservation. The ac was not working properly. (It was not cooling off) The maintaince man showed up in minutes and attempted to fix the problem. After a few minutes of not being able to figure it out, he said 'just open the windows if it gets too hot' Well, it got warm and we opened the windows.Then it got too cold so we closed the windows.Not to mention, we were on the 2nd floor and the people directly above us must have had kids because we heard stomping late into the night to early morning. I was a bit perturb. After a couple of long sleepless nights we finally complained to the front desk. Let me say that we hate to complain but we were not enjoying our stay. The people who work at this hotel were outstanding. They upgraded our stay and put us on the 3rd floor. The ac worked better but was struggling to keep up and we had it at 70 degrees and the temperature outside was in the 40's! Now comes the complimentary breakfast. It wasn't bad if there hadn't been 50-60 high school age kids sitting in the lobby and tables which were meant for breakfast. They were having some type of testing for them....In a small area like that? This went on for 2 mornings.Sure was not a quiet breakfast. We were there for 4 days and this has been one of our more disappointed stays. If it wasn't for the staff, we would have rated this stay a terrible.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor. Walls are thin.

Dear Mr. Frank V,

Thank you for your detailed feedback regarding your stay at our Surprise location.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the challenges you experienced regarding the air conditioning unit. We are pleased our team members were able to correct the situation by upgrading you to a new suite. We will be sending you a gift certificate for a complimentary night on a future stay for the inconveniences.

Thank you for notifying us regarding the lack of space in our breakfast room and lobby area. This particular group was located in our meeting rooms. We will investigate the reason our breakfast area was being utilized for testing purposes.

Our team members will be recognized for their outstanding customer service during your stay.

We value your patronage and look forward to the opportunity to serve you again!

I chose this hotel based on other trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. We stayed in a suite that was similar or cheaper in cost to a standard room at other hotels I was looking at in the area. The suite had a room with two double beds and sliding doors separating it from a living room with a pullout couch as well as a small kitchen area with a mini fridge and microwave.

This is the first hotel I've ever requested a pack and play when making reservations and they had it in the room and set up when we got there! The service was superb, all staff members were friendly and extremely helpful and welcoming. We had an issue with the A/C and after calling the front desk had maintenance there in less than 5 minutes to take a look at the issue. The following day we got a call to follow up that our issue had been resolved. Top notch customer service all around.

The pool area was nice and they had a nice courtyard area. They had a nice continental breakfast in the morning. The location was ideal to any restaraunt/shopping you could want.

This was a perfect place for some much needed relaxing and a place I would highly recommend!!

This hotel is very clean and the staff welcoming and attentive. We were immediately offered a freshly baked cookie during the check in process. Since our room was a suite it would have been very easy to comfortably stay for many days. Everything in our room was very clean and comfortable. The window in the living and the bedroom could be opened for fresh air and the climate control system worked very well as did both TVs. The suites are true suites with a bedroom entirely separate from the living room/office/kitchenette. The bathroom was good sized and the towels large and fluffy. The breakfast would have been fine with only a waffle maker but we enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits and gravy plus all the other usual things on a breakfast bar. I would absolutely stay there again.
