I had an appointment at Mayo Clinic, and Bestwestern gave me a very good rate. My wife and I stayed only one night and the beds were very comfortable to sleep on. I have a breathing disorder, and they provided me with extra pillows to prop up my head to sleep better. Had the breakfast buffet the next morning, and... More

This hotel had a great location - close to everything. The room was very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. One of the nicest things about the hotel was the daily breakfast. Food was prepared fresh every morning. A different dish was offered every morning. Sal and Steve are the best! Thank you.

I chose to stay in this hotel as it was close to the Scottsdale locations I needed to attend. I was a resident of PHX for 3 1/2 years so I know the area very well.

This hotel is convenient to everything in Scottsdale, without the high prices. My unit had a bedroom, small kitchenette, desk, and small living room. What more can one ask for! I am always concerned to stay in a kitchenette unit, although convenient can have unpleasant odors. This hotel did not have those issues! Everything was well maintained, and clean. Yes... More

Lovely place to stay. I was there for the Miss Jetset Model contest Hangar Party. The location was extremely convenient for this event at the Executive Airport. The staff was very nice and the bartender gets 5 stars! I highly recommend the Hamburger!
