Our room was extremely small with uncomfortable beds. The bathroom was a disaster with a large hole in the wall under the sink which I plugged with a towel so nothing could creep in during the night. The hallways looked as though they hadn't been vacuumed or cleaned in years. Beware! Just because you pay a lot doesn't mean you...

I stayed one night in a lodge room (#445) with a double bed and basin, facilities down the corridor. The room was small but tastefully decorated and very clean as were the shared showers and restrooms. Very comfortable bed and good quality linens. The not so good: I suspect room #445 is the dregs of the lodge. When I get...

The Paradise Inn Lodge is a very convenient place to spend a night or two if you are focused on outdoor activities and scenery. No lodging in the area can match the convenience of being just a few yards from the beginning of the hiking trails. Scenery is among the best in America. The rustic lodge is historic and a...

Our dinner in the Paradise Inn dining room proved to be absolutely one of the WORST meals either of us had eaten. The "bourbon buffalo meatloaf" was a joke: a vulcanized overdone dry lump of purported ground buffalo meat wrapped in nearly raw bacon. Very overpriced considering its near in-edibility. Even our bottle of wine was undrinkable. A very disappointing...

Let me begin by saying that if, no, WHEN I stay again, I will choose one of the larger rooms. Under most circumstances, the small rooms in the main lodge are adequate, but very small, with double, not queen beds, and no air circulation. We were there on a warm (80+ degree day) and even with the window wide open,...

This inn is perfectly situated to see the wildflowers in Paradise Valley and to take in the stunning views of Mount Ray near. The lobby of the lodge and restaurant are magnificent. Our wing of the hotel had not been updated in probably 50 years. As a result, the accommodations were lousy. That said, I would go back in a...

Second time at Paradise, both times in a queen room in the annex. Rooms are small, but bed was comfortable and it was very clean. July 2013 our 2nd floor annex room faced the lodge so noise was a bit of an issue and there was no view.This time our room was on the 4th floor and on the back...

We stayed one night in the Annex building. We had two rooms and own full bathroom. The night we stayed here in late August was a chilly one. When we arrived, the temperature in our room was around 50 degrees. We immediately turned on our wall heaters which helped ward off the chill that was coming through the very thin...

Finding ANY room is hard, but when the nice reservation agent let me know there was ONE available, I took it. Not that I want to encourage more folks to fill up the available reservations, but we actually enjoyed not having a shower/toilet crowded into the already Spartan room and found we had plenty of usable space. The facilities were...

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Paradise Inn, one night in a room with 2 doubles and one night in the Annex.
