I have stayed at the Yuma Cabana many times in the past.
In May 2012 new owners took over and fired some of the staff members I had gotten to know and like.
Frankly, this made me hesitant to go back.
I did go back though.
And was welcomed by a very nice desk clerk named Darlene.
Because I had been here before I did not have to fill out the whole form, just sign it, hand over my credit card and then I got my key.
Very fast, very efficient - just great after a long drive.
A few days later we chatted and discovered we both have a love of birds and photographing them in common.
All rooms have La-Z-Boy-recliners.
Mine didn't recline because someone had broken off the handle.
I left a note about that for the housekeeper and immediately the chair was replaced.
I also got an extra notepad. Turned out the housekeeper (Sonia) had recognized my name and had remembered that I love those notepads! This made me feel extra welcome and I especially appreciated it because I hadn't stayed here in over a year and when I did stay here that last time she had not even been my housekeeper.
When Sonia cleaned my room for the last time (I was leaving the next day) she even left me a short note saying she had missed me and hoped I would be back soon.
What a wonderful way to make a guest feel appreciated!
I love the spacious apartment (Rm 227), enjoyed sitting on my balcony, really appreciated the very fast WiFi internet.
I read on TripAdvisor that some guests have experienced problems with the plumbing and bad service.
I feel bad about that and all I can say is that apart from the problem with the chair (which was quickly resolved) I have had no problems at all.
On the contrary. Everyone has been very nice and helpful.
I will definitely be back.
