Mesa, Arizona
Reviewed 6 November 2016

Hotel staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The location was great with access to the Interstate, restaurants and gas. The rooms were clean and well maintained. A bonus was great chocolate chip cookies at the front desk. They also offered chili in the evening for guests which was nice.

Thank you for the good words. I see you fell victim to the wonderful cookies that our staff always gets ready for check in time. I can brag about being their official taster each afternoon, just to make sure they are up to our standard. And every time they pass the test :) Thanks again and happy travels to you.

I have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean and decent size. The front desk staff are always helpful. Breakfast is decent. There are several restaurants nearby.

Easy on and off the freeway en route to our destination! Comfortable bed, clean room, breakfast good with some hot selections. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We usually chose Best Western because the points earned each night add up to rewards such as a free night!

Thank you for a good word about the Best Western Rewards loyalty program. Yes, indeed Best Western is the "fastest" program out there that will get you to a free room or other fabulous prizes. Thanks again and travel on!

Very friendly staff, good location and very pet friendly. Breakfast helped make our early start quick and easy. Staff helped us find a very good restaurant for dinner. It is sometimes difficult to find pet friendly accommodations and this property is very welcoming.

Dear dog lover, thank you very much for your kind words about my property. Yes, indeed, we love our guests traveling with dogs and happily accommodate them in all our rooms. We only frown on irresponsible dog owners who leave their poor dogs alone for a whole day while they go off on their business. They miss you, bark and...

We stayed here for one night in one of the one bedroom suites. The young man at the front desk was very helpful, bringing us extra towels and pillows. The hotel was clean, although older. Breakfast was satisfactory. I would stay here again.

Work is taking me to DM regularly. This is my first choice of places to stay. Clean rooms, friendly staff and nice selection of breakfast foods. Relaxing social hour daily. It is easy to get too and close to interstate.

Would give this an average hotel. Room was clean, it was quiet. We were in a suite which in most hotels consists of at least a partition if not a door. This is just a larger room with a couch and second tv. So if you decide to both watch some tv to relax & watch different channels you have...

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you did not enjoy our limited breakfast offering. We would love to serve a gourmet breakfast to order but do not have the facilities to accommodate that complicated an operation. Likewise because of storage and food freshness we cannot keep it up for unlimited times to accommodate all the late guests and...

When you are greeted at the front desk like a family member coming home, you know you are in the right place. The staff throughout the hotel, even bumping into them in the elevators, had warm smiles and welcomes. I'm sorry to say that our 3 night stay kept us too busy to enjoy the Weds/Thurs 5-7:00 hospitality cocktails and...

Thank you so much for noticing the smiles of my staff. That is so important and you are truly unique for recognizing or even noticing that. In an era where smiles are "mandatory" by decree of various corporate structures and organizations it is truly challenging to motivate staff to feel good about the job they are doing.
