We are getting used to the warm welcomes from Best Western Hotels, but once again we were surprised by the great welcome we received from the staff on the front desk at this hotel. The lady on the front desk could not have been more helpful, asking what our plans were, where we were heading, if we needed any maps or directions printed out. She also gave us a lot of information about what to do and see whilst we were in the area, also where to have dinner, (Restaurants, Diners, Café’s Etc.). A great start to a great 2-night stay at this hotel.
The hotel is very easy to find, it is located on the main road US 70, (On the corner of W Thatcher Blvd & W 14th Avenue). There was plenty of parking spaces, but I think parking may be more difficult if the hotel was really busy. The room was very clean, the bed and the pillows were very comfortable, the A/C was already running so the room temperature was just right. Despite our room being at the front of the hotel, we never heard any traffic noise, if fact it was very quiet, and we got a good night’s sleep.
Being on a road trip one thing we found very useful was that this hotel has a 24 Laundromat, which is located in a separate building just across the parking lot, away from the rooms, and the front desk has a ready supply of Quarters & Soap Etc.
The complimentary breakfast was very good, there was a good supply of various types of Bread, Cereal, Fruit Juice, Yoghurt, Fruit, Waffles and freshly cooked Bacon, Eggs, Sausage plus Pastries, Muffins, Coffee Etc.
This hotel would make a great base for visiting Mount Graham Observatory, or The Mount Graham Hill Climb Bicycle Race, and Roper Lake State Park which is only 5 Miles away.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and will be staying here again the next time we are in the area. less
