We stayed here for a week during the PGA golf tournament. It was very clean with friendly employees. Full Breakfast served daily. We would definitely stay here again. The Happy hour in the sports bar with snacks was a plus.

This throwback from another era motel offers a convenient location to airport, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. The retro feel provides the right touch for this great value motel. The staff is very gracious and competent and the free hot breakfast is better than most.

This is located near Old Scottsdale and near the Botanical Gardens. Staff will bend over backwards to ensure your stay is pleasant. Free WiFi and free breakfast. Pool and outdoor aviary full of parakeets.

Loved this hotel! It's older, but the rooms have been renovated nicely and everything else is well-maintained. All rooms are inside a securely locked area, surrounding a delightful courtyard with a small pool, aviary with birds, a swing, giant chess game, and lots of grass. Dining room is retro in a cool way. Bar is to-die-for retro!! Staff was quite...

I liked the motel. it was very clean and quite. Except for the loud birds, there is a cage of birds! The pool is small but alway clean. and if you like the 70s decor you will love the retro modern feel of the place.

A nice little hotel a bit old but fairly prized. Rooms feels old but they are clean and good sized. A little small pool area, clean pool. Wifi was good without interruptions, a standard free breakfast is included and that works okay but you can order whatever you like. The gym isn't that good. Overall a nice stay

The hotel amenities were OK, and the breakfast was OK, but I was very disappointed in our check in. We arrived late, although we did have a credit card on file. After we got to our room we realized they switched us (w/o informing us) to a different room - one with one bed and a sofa bed instead of...

I work in scottsdale every month for a few days, and have bounced around to downtown, north scottsdale, central.. all over. Ive stayed at hotels, resorts, extended stays, etc. This hotel is by far my favorite. The level of customer service you get from the front is phenominal. Both times ive stayed, the front desk was so pleasant and helpful....

I have stayed here on several occasions, and really like the place. It's not the nicest hotel in town, but the rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are comfy, and the location is a quick car ride away from Old Town Scottsdale. There is a quirky little beer bar just next door called Papago brewing Company, and a Brewpub...

We enjoyed great service and a fine, quiet night sleep at this comfortable inn. It's located amidst car dealerships, but once you walk in you feel more like you're in the tropics than a desert. Beautiful plantings and pool area. Our room was recently updated and we loved the remote control AC. Not your sanitized chain, this place has lots...
