"Great for the price and close to zoo"
We needed a place to stay at the last minute and this was it. Not only did we get a great deal but we got a very nice room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"quant and quiet very nice"
We loved it here, the ground were very well kept and it was nice awakening to the sound of parakeets chriping. If i had to say anything negative about the hotel it would be about the beds, The mattresses were very mushy and ended up in the middle of the bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think that everything went well, the staff was nice and the room was comfortable. The bathroom was small but worked and the pool and patio areas were really nice and well kept. I would recommend staying here for a reasonable rate and location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay over with the girls"
Requested a late check-out and was told it was not possible. An employee knoked on the door at 12:02 and the front desk 12:04. Employees were very rude and were not accomadating. Had a late night due to a late flight out of phoenix so at least an 1/2 hour of extra time would have been sufficient. Spoke with manager Daniel who was very helpful and apologized […] for the lack of service and rudeness. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"OK. Cute place and alright rooms. Great price tho"
Great for the price. Can't beat it. Had to fix my own toilet and the staff was not the friendliest.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a very bad expierence w/ being woken up @ 8:00 am & 10:00 am due to maintenance drilling and pounding in the room next to ours because they were installing a closet. When we complained to the hotel General Manager she was very rude, yelling at my boyfriend and we were not offered any comps for the inconvienence. I have given this specific location […] a bad review on their website. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of my favorites"
A great place to get away!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. The grounds were nicely landscaped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
location is good, too expensive for what you get, asked to have pluming fixed as the drain in the tub was extremely slow, not fixed when askedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and Clean"
Convenient location, easy access to the 101 and 202 Loops, Hwy 51 and airport. Fast wifi connection. Air conditioner was nice and cold (especially important since it 115 degrees the weekend I was there!). Neighborhood was nice, no fears walking to car at night. Enjoyed having the small refrigerator in the room. This was my second stay, and I'll be back […] again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Far away from everything."
No food to eat later on. Everything closes early. The hotel is too far from everything to drive. The pool closes early for how hot it is. It was 115 at night! The rooms are updated with nice furniture, but appliances are really old. The ac couldn't cool down the room. The price was fair for what the conditions were. It was odd to me that the breakfasts […] was not included with our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older but quaint and refreshing"
Inner courtyard very relaxing not the most modern facility but you feel refreshed after sitting in center courtyard for anytime.Genuine Expedia guest review
"All Good at the Best Western"
Bang for your Buck! Simple as that. A very clean room, cool hotel that is quaint. A nice touch with the BIG chess pieces. I enjoyed my two night stay. Thanks BW!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old motel in nice condition"
Nice pool area, kids enjoyed the bird cage. Room very clean with all necessities. Beds sag in middle. Friendly staff. Questionable neighborhood despite fancy cars next door. Close to airport. Price is right on the head!Genuine Expedia guest review
"NOT a non-smoking property"
I couldn't enjoy any of the features of the hotel outside my room because the entire courtyard reeked of smoke. The sheets in my room had a hint of smoke and I would occasionally get a whiff of it through the door. The woman and the front desk could care less about my stay and was unfriendly and direct with her responses. The hotel has nice features...if […] you can stand the smoke. The business center is decent and the birds are a welcoming touch. Also, this is in a run-down part of Scottsdale. Be wary of vagrants and abandoned car lots. I would not recommend this place and don't plan on staying again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean Room, Dated Hotel"
Comfortable and clean room and bed. Very old and dated hotel, circa 1972 with no upgrades to facilities. I would never bring my family to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The place is clean. Room is not so spacious but it has privacy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice clean love the bed"
my experience was good stayed there before they did some improvementsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fit the bill"
Great place, not what you expect from the outside. I will recommend it to my friends coming from out of town. Close to Old Town Scottsdale and Downtown Tempe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we had a very comfortable stay. the hotel rooms were quiet and I slept like a log. I even went back to the room to relax for awhile, after dropping my guest at the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price"
My girlfriend and I needed a weekend away and we booked a room here last minute. The price was great, the room was nice, and the courtyard was beautiful. All we wanted was to relax and sit by a nice pool and that's exactly what we got. And the breakfast restaurant was tasty and it was conveniently located, too. I'd happily go there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was good"
Though it was nothing exceptional, still everything was good.It was pleasant experience. Thank you!Genuine Expedia guest review
Would recommend to anyone. Frigid AC, hot water in the shower, plenty of fresh towels, a bar, pool and breakfast restaurant. Even has a cage full of parakeets. Close to a major S. Scottsdale intersection so there are plenty of restaurants, PO, hardware store, several grocery stores. Close to the 101, Old Town Scottsdale and downtown Tempe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Well I know things happen. When we checked in apparently the room was still being occupied by someone as indicated by food and clothing and medicine still there. (Good thing they were gone when we went in). They did change our room of course and the bathtub leaked and of course the kids we very loud at the pool until about 9pm. The landscaping in the […] court is awesome and the hotel is just older and the parking lot is very small. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Recommended. Read my other comments.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent a week waiting for AC to be repaired. Never realized this little gem was right up the street. Will recommend to friends from out of town. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Other chain hotels in the area would do well to follow Papago Inn's example.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
It suited our purposes well. It was very quiet and well kept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was always very helpful, including changing rooms. The air conditioning was always good, room clean, plenty of towels. There was a pool, a restaurant and a bar for guests, as well as a room with vending machines, ice, and a separate laundry room. All in all a good stay, and a cut above other chains I have dealt with in the past.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little treasure."
Clean room. Nice pool. Free internet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Comfortable"
We were pleasantly surprised by this property. This isn't the "swanky" part of Scottsdale but it is quiet and very nice. The pool area is in the center of the grassy area with rooms facing towards it. It is a small pool but nice with lots of lounging chairs by and near the pool, some on the soft grassy area. The aviary is a nice touch too - very relaxing. […] We walked around the corner via a shopping plaza parking lot and found some good food and drinks. We didn't have breakfast at the BW but instead again walked around the corner to the Dutch Bros. coffee place. All in all, we got just what we wanted - a comfy sleep in a quiet place with no hassle or driving using GPS! Perfect! This may not be upscale but it is very nice and a terrific value.

Yes we would stay there again. Nice grounds, clean room and nice bar with all friendly people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel at a good price"
We had a great stay at this hotel, the grounds are very well maintained, pool area was very relaxing and peaceful. The hotel resembles a somewhat retro feel and well looked after. The televisions have been upgraded to large flat screens. The breakfast restaurant was quiet but pretty good! We will definitely stay here again when we need to stay in the […] Phoenix area.

"I would returned again"
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It was quiet and clean and the price was good. The negatives were the smokers that sat in chairs located in front of their rooms. It might be nice if there was a smoking area. I did not like the smoke blowing my way. The other negative was that I asked for two rooms with an adjoining door between the two. […] I spoke three different times to three different people about my request. When I went into my room we did have an adjoining door between us but it was sealed up and there was a bed situated in front of the door. How come the staff was just not honest in the first place and expalined that they could not accomodate my request. Other than that, I was very pleased. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I really enjoyed my stay here! It was quiet, clean and relaxing. Such a cute small scale motel, a lovely vintage feeling. There is a small pool in a beautifully maintained courtyard, also they have a small aviary with parakeets who are interesting to watch. If you have to have the "RESORT" feel, probably this won't be the place for you. If you are looking […] for a relaxing get away, and a slower pace, give them a try.

"Nice hotel with small "resort" feel"
Stayed 2 nights while visiting family in the area. Did not use the hotel pool or other facilities, since we basically just slept there. But the room was comfortable, especially the bed, bathroom very nice with large walk-in shower (which we prefer over bathtubs), and staff was courteous. Pool and surrounding courtyard looked very nice, and certainly […] would be enjoyed by families! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet and Clean"
Older hotel that is close to the airport and very quiet. Would be a great choice for those who are early to bed and early to rise. Very quaint. Great value for a peaceful experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Employees here are the best!"
The staff at this hotel was fabulous. I was lost and called to inquired directions. Christine was very helpful. I had to call several times but each time she was polite, patient and very professional. I informed her that I had some peaches in my car and did not want to leave them in the car while I attended the summit I was in town for and my room was […] not ready for check-in. Christine offered to store the peaches in the walk in cooler for me. I really appreciated this gesture. I had arrived at the hotel the previous evening because I had mistakenly made my reservation for the following night. Bill was very kind and assisted me in finding alternative lodgings. When I returned the following day, he greeted my by name and made me feel very welcomed. He was friendly, professional and very patient. He welcomed me as if I were a long time friend. I really enjoyed that. I would certainly recommend this hotel to others and would return if ever again in the Scottsdale, AZ area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall we feel this is a good place to stay , especially I like the garden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
everything about this stay was enjoyable from the pool with its nearby aviary to the convenient location for food and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place for the price. Older hotel, but nice. Court yard nicely maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel was an oasis in the middle of the "urban jungle". The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. My room was comfortable and quiet. Overall this was a great place to spend time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't let the outside appearance Keep you Away!"
Wasn't too impressed when we first drove to the site but once inside hotel property was very impressed. The pool area and bird sanctuary (cage) was cool. Rooms were very nice and clean. Husband liked the TV. Would go back again. Surprised no complimentary breakfast. Other than that. It was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is great place for those looking for a reasonable motel in the Scottsdale-Mesa area. Older but well kept and very clean. All rooms face in towards a nice pool and green courtyard area in the middle of the complex. Would be a real hit if you happen to have kids along. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mini-Oasis in Scottsdale/Tempe area"
My husband was pleasantly surprised, saying "this is the nicest Best Western I've ever seen"...pool area is great & staff is very accomodating...we moved after 3 nights b/c of a chain smoke next door from room across the dining rm to other side of the hotel (by parakeet cage)& noticed the room was abit nicer...we will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An oldie but a goodie!"
Older hotel in depressed part of Scottsdale ( yes there is a depressed Scottsdale), but very clean and comfortable. Beautiful pool and grassy area. Comfortable beds and wide screen TV. Great value and price. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I recently stayed at the Papago inn prior to a job interview and found the property was very nice. My room door stuck every time I attempted entry. I had to body slam the door to get in. Pillows were terrible. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Vending room was locked long after if should have been open making it impossible for us to get a bottle […] of water. On the whole I would recommend this hotel as the staff was nice and property was well manicured and clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Real Bargain"
We felt as though we really got our money's worth at this Best Western. It was quiet, clean, and nicely furnished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfy"
This hotel was actually better than we were expecting. The room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. Our only complaint was that we could hear noise from outside the room. There was some woman out for her wake-up cigarette at 6 AM and we could hear her hacking every morning for about 15 minutes.Genuine Expedia guest review
Although not in a pedestrian friendly area, a quick drive delivers you to downtown Scottsdale with all the restaurants and shopping it is famous for. Easy drive to airport. Driving by you would never guess the shady tropical pool area that exist behind the non-descript hotel facade. The huge parakeet cage near the pool is another nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
