4/10 Fair

Bad experience/old hotel
Planned trip 2 months prior, with an early check in request. Told several times is was approved. After several back and fourth emails/texts with different people and different check in times, a week and several days worth of back and fourth, including day of. I was over it. They try to charge you $28 for even less than 1 hour early check in. I had originally requested a 10am check in for a 4pm normal check in time. After to much back and fourth emails, I came at 3:35pm, less than 1 hour for a normal check in. The receptionist said she would not charge me for early check in for all the hasstle I had to go through. Only for me to wake up to a rude text from another hotel associate, telling me they wouldnt be able to compensate me for an early check in. Obviously a very frustrating experience. The room was clean, but very old. The door didnt close very tight, so it would shake anytime someone opened a hotel door. Sounding like someone was breaking in all the time. Hence a sleepless night. There is only beds and no furniture to sit on. So its the bed or nothing. Bathroom was very tiny, toilet seat is so low to ground , great if you are a toddler. The only silver lining, was the hotel supervisor Ashley who refunded my 2nd day stay and credited my 2 day parking passes. I decided to not stay the second night. So thanks to her it wasnt terrible, just uncomfortable and disappointing stay.

Great location
The location is perfect. Right in Old Town Scottsdale. The room was very clean. I was not thrilled with checking in online as it was my first time but it all worked out fine. My only issue was the ice machine near us didn’t work. I told the staff and it never got fixed in the two days we were there. But I found other ice machines in the next building. Overall this is a great place with a great location.

6/10 Good

An older resort they have painted and fixed up, disappointed with the cleanliness of the bathroom. They did switch rooms promptly. But the next room also had crumbs and lint on the floor by the bench (only vacuumed main walkway it looked like). Very expensive and not sure the 4 star rating is appropriate anymore.

Lipstick on a Pig
Rundown buildings with fresh paint, laminate flooring and a comfortable bed. Definitely not worth the money. Not having a front desk to call when there is a problem is not something that makes me comfortable. Ice machine not working, front door would not lock properly and not being able how to pay to park kind of ruined our experience.
