Outdated and overpriced

Although the hotel lobby, bar and restaurant look wonderful, the room was not up to par for $315. It was very dated, dirty bathroom and stuff uncomfortable beds. My guest was in from LA and we stay here for her birthday, it really was a waste of money. I will never be staying here nor will I ever refer any out of town people to this hotel.

Recent over night trip

We really enjoyed our stay at this resort. As a young small family with both children under 6 years old, I felt safe and secure with the set up of the pool area, the water depth and the water pool amenities. The staff were very friendly with my family and myself when it came to our first time questions. The only small issue I came a cross was there was no breakfast included and the movie that was played.pool side wasnt very kids friendly due to the swear words a constant in the movie stand by me. Other than alittle of those two things our stay over all was a pleasure and we will be returm again in the future ! Thank you.

Service at the bar/restaurant was not good. A table that was seated 10 min after us, was waited on first. Also, it took 20 minutes to get an appetizer

Very old and cramped!

Room is outdated as is the wifi, spotty at best to the point of non-existent. The room needs 2 more feet of space, 4 people in the room and we had to keep sitting on the bed to pass each other. You get more bathroom space at a Motel 6. Loved the hotel lobby, but that's not where I was staying. The staff was incredibly sweet and helpful.

The pictures on the web-must have been airbrushed.

Pros: The room
Cons: A little more snaz.
Location: A lot of restaurants within 20 minutes.
The hotel was a little old and in need for some modernization. The room was just fine but the rest of the place needs a little up-dates.

I expected more for this "resort"

Pros: The beautiful heated pool. Check in was fast.
Cons: Looks run down and just barely hanging on until the winter when its peak golf season. A complimentary room upgrade when rooms are avail.
Location: Everything is in driving distance. nothing in walking distance.
This was an Arizoona "stacation" for a special occasion. I have stayed at some very nice resorts, time shares and hote chaines. This "resort" was very much Over Priced, disappointing, old and in need of restoration. The lobby was small, dimly lit and staff was neither friendly or unfriendly, just doing their job. We checked in fast, were told to see the bell hop for directions to our room. Even though most of the rooms in the main area around the pool were empty, we were placed in a room away from the main resort, on the second floor with no view. The room was a cube, the shower didnt work and the electrical outlets in the bathroom sink area did not work. The area of the resort where we stayed seemed disjointed and disconnected from the rest of the resort. We did not eat at the resort or use any of their amenitites. With so many empty rooms, it would have been nice to receive a complinentary room upgrade. Positive; The heated pool is beautiful as well as the golf course and where we stayed we had pricavy. (no hot tub) The rest of the resort needs work.. I dont mind at all that it is an older resort, built in (1976), but the buildings need some help especially with the price they are charging.

Housekeeping Poor

Dropped my glasses on side of bed, got down on floor to look for them and found a spit cup (used) on the floor next to the bedside table. Maids did not find it for 2 nights until I reluctantly put it in the hallway. Totally grossed out by this & realize that it is the fault of the person with the nasty habit but Housekeeping should check under between bed & bedside table.
