This spot is a 5 for coolness.
Unfortunately it is a 1 for the most important item needed in Arizona in the Summer.
I checked out 5 minutes after checking in, once I walked into a sweltering room with 1 broken fan and no A/C. There was no way the room would cool off before I wanted to go to bed.
I'm sure this would be a great place in the Fall or Spring and maybe even in the dead of Winter. I didn't look for a heater.
But not when it's 85+ degrees out and the breeze through the windows in June only make you hotter.
Go for the nostalgia because this place is cool, but don't do it in the summer.
