“Great Golf Resort”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

We have been going to the Apache Stronghold for the past 7 years around the Labor Day weekend, this year was the best yet. Rudy the Starter has always been fantastic and has always had things ready for our group. This year the new directer of golf (Jim Lawrence) treated us like kings as the course was in the best shape its been in years. They are making a lot of improvements and upgrades to the course. And the hospitality is top notch, they made you feel special. The prices are very resonable and well worth the trip.

The hotel was good although the hospitality there was not as good as the staff at the golf course. they have one of the best fitness rooms I have ever seen at a hotel and the new pool is a great place to relax after a day of golf, and before going to dinner at the casino.

Over all it was a great experience, we look forward to returning next year.

Being enroute from Sierra Vista to Flagstaff, San Carlos seemed a good mid place to overnight so we prebooked a room on line and entered "San Carlos" in our GPS. What a tour! We ended up on dirt roads in the reservation before making our way back to the interstate and on to Globe where we asked directions and were sent 5 miles back east to the Apache Gold Casino which we had seen and commented on but passed by because the tiny "Best Western" sign was hidden behind the gas price and casino signage. Apparently the area had not at that time been GPS'ed. We do not gamble but the large, beautifully appointed room, good food and kind service made it worth the search. We would definitely return!

Room Tip: It is all ground floor so hallways are long, there are courtyard and exterior rooms.

Once you have you Apache Gold Players Club card, just about every thing is at a discount from you hotel stay, your meals, even in the gift shop. On the weekends live bands, drink specials, very low price, no cover charge, music of all styles. The bartender remembers your face and what you were drinking. A convenient store, gas station, snack stand all located on the casino side. On the hotel, side of great fitness center, large clean pool and spa. Unlike larger resorts The Apache Gold resort/casino staff are very helpful and will to go that extra mile to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.

This one is the best in the area of Globe, only because it has everything right there on site.
Also a casino attached keeps you occupied, not very large but good enough for entertainment. The pool is brand new and nice, the fitness center is also new. The Stronghold Golf course attached is nice, needs a little work, they are tearing up the bunkers,but great views. It is clean. The locals are interesting from the Apache reservation.
The food is so so, needs some upgrading, it is there if you need it. Very close to all the GLobe attractions and main town restaurants.

Room Tip: they have stay and play golf packages

What kind of "resort" does not allow you to drink any alcohol at the pool? Then to have some huge rude security guard come make you take it back to your room even though you are drinking out of inconspicuous plastic cups! Makes for a very lame time! No wonder this place is so empty! If they would get with the times like the radisson fort mcdowell & sell a few drinks & play a little music, I'm sure occupancy would increase dramatically....just sayin!
