Westerner Motel
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Wickenburg
Reviewed 22 January 2009

I'm not going to rave about the Westerner as some others have, but it was fine for the price (about $55 for four of us). If you're worried about thread counts and lots of extras, check elsewhere; the Westerner isn't for you. But if you simply want a clean place to sleep, it'll do.

Its tile floors offer a bit of charm. The bathroom was small but functional and clean. The heating system was older but warm enough on one of those rare cold nights in Arizona. The beds were sleepable, and cable choices were varied. It was quiet.

I was disappointed when the owner -- a nice lady -- told us she had given away the room I had informally reserved on the phone earler in the day. She arranged a rollaway, but it wasn't as nice as an actual bed.

My only real complaint was the early check-out time: 10 a.m. That's the earliest I've ever seen. The owner let us stay an extra half-hour but I still felt rushed. Otherwise, the Westerner was fine and does have a certain 50s style charm about it.

I'd stay there again.

The Westerner Motel has been around for quite a while. It doesn't look like much from the outside. And, in fact, it really isn't very much. But, it retains the atmosphere of the old west and early days of car travel. The rooms are clean and have served there purpose for many previous travelers.

Varsha Patel runs this place with love. She will charm you and help you believe you are staying in a more grandiose motel. When I arrived, one of the motel's tenents was gifting Ms Patel with some specialty baked goods. I had to apologize since I had nothing to offer. Her business card states "May God bless U.S.A., England, and Hindustan." She is a special lady and this is a special place.

Another treat is the Mexican restaurant right across the highway from the motel. It is also old-fashioned and serves meals that are filling and well prepared. Inexpensive and very good. Hint: If the waitress recommends the special, take it. She also prepares the food and knows what's good.

What a delightful surprise. This '50s motor court retains almost all of its original charm. If you like the big chains this is not the place for you. But if you want a super clean room with a TV, Micro and fridge you'll feel right at home. There is lso a small pool. What makes this place fantastic is the manager. Varsha Patel is a 30 something high energy dynamo. She is full of terrific stories and her story is amazing. And at sixty bucks a night how can you go wrong.
