I went here with my wife and 2 boys for 3 days in February. It was nice rooms and a beautiful area. The pool wasn't open for some reason. Cave Creek is a cute little town with lots of touristy things but not in a bad way.

Well we actually stayed less than 24 hours. I kinda feel money-wasted stay kind of thing since we were a bit in a tight schedule with all the things going around. Anyhoo, the hotel was very simple. I think it has about 20 doors available. Its like the hotel you probably seen in The American series, Bates Motel. For a... More

We booked a reservation here in August for a day after fun on Bartlett Lake. When we arrived around 5 p.m. it seemed we were the only ones checking in. The desk attendant mentioned they had "pre-cooled" our room, but that we should keep the bathroom door closed to keep the room cooler. When we got to our room it... More

This hotel was really cute! The room was decorated nice in western style. It was clean, beds were comfy. The staff was helpful and polite. It's a great location for a Cave Creek stay. We were in the town to enjoy the "night life" and wanted to be close so we weren't driving. Fun town, nice hotel!

My wife and I decided to stay in Cave Creek following a wedding celebration in nearby Carefree, AZ, rather than drive 40 miles home. In July, the room was too hot to be comfortable throughout the afternoon, and the bathroom was hotter than the outside air (we were advised by the desk clerk to keep the door closed, otherwise the...
