Thank you for staying with us at Best Western Desert Inn. I apologize you did not have an enjoyable stay. A play area would be nice for out 4 legged friends. I also apologize our pool is seasonal and only open from April 1-Oct 31 each year. We would hope you would be willing to give our hotel another chance in the future if traveling to the Safford area.
