Noisy, dated expensive hotel

No. No. No. I booked this place two days ahead based on online reviews. I deliberately chose a place that was a bit more expensive in hopes that it would not be a complete dive. Well, it is not a complete dive, but for the money I paid (almost 200USD) I was completely let down. We were on the lower floor (room 204) and EVERY single footstep and movement could be heard upstairs. That included the bed-bouncing sex, laughter, toilet flushing and coughing. Ugh. Needless to say, all of these noise issues made for a crappy night sleep.
The rooms are decorated in a 1980’s shall I say “hacienda” style. The brown carpet sported some even browner stains, the fan comes on automatically with the bathroom light and sounds like a helicopter in the room. The furniture and fixtures are very dated. In this day and age even the motels are providing SOMETHING beside the bed to charge various electronic devices......but not here.
I will say that the rooms are a good size, the towels are plentiful and the small pool area looked nice. Breakfast is included in the price, but both Food areas were so crowded we grabbed a yogurt and ran for the highway. We are currently in an almost beachfront hotel with a full kitchen and much better amenities on a weekend for a much lower price than the Best Western Casa Grande.
Oh! And just in case you want some souvenirs from your stay at the Casa Grande, this convenient shopping sign is left for you in the room!!! (See picture). less
