Pros: This property has a nostalgic retro vibe without looking worn and tattered. You can tell lots of thought and planning went into restoring this former Best Western motel to its mid century coolness.
Cons: Not really except every time I went to the front desk e.g. check in and check out, there was no one there.

Pros: The hotel was top notch in quality and service. The pool and courtyard area was very attractive and inviting. The rooms offered a very comfortable bed and flat screen tv. A suberb value in every respect, and the breakfast, included in the price, great.
Cons:

Pros: The location suited us, the room was spacious and the free breakfast, albeit humble, was a great addition. Staff were all very friendly and informative.
Cons: The rooms could do with additional towel rods or even a coat hook on the back of the bathroom door.. There's not much space to hang damp towels. Also the wifi was slightly weak and kept cancelling us out, but these are just minor things; I'd stay again

Pros: Retro 50ws style place, upgraded. Great beds, hospitable friendly, helpfulstaff; even a nice comp breakfast. My favorite go to place when I've business in the Phoenix metro area. Close enough 4 downtown meetings or fine Scottsdale dining/shopping.
Cons: Some rooms are not on the courtyard side, and there are no elevators. I asked for a 1st floor room by the pool, and I got one! The gates can be noisy when they close, and perhaps rubberized bumpers would help.
