Marriott McDowell Mountain Resort – Scottsdale, AZ

This is a great hotel! We stayed here four nights last September. This is an all-suite hotel and our suite and bath were spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable.

On-site amenities include a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and a fitness center. There is also excellent on-site dining in the Zambra Grille and Agave Bar. The hotel is only minutes from Downtown and Old Town. The hotel also has spectacular desert mountain views.

We would definitely stay here again!

Travelodge Grand Canyon – Flaggstaff, AZ

I spent one night at the Flagstaff ¬†University/Grand Canyon Travelodge, after making a reservation online. The website promised clean, spacious rooms and two spas with a sauna. Unfortunately, the reality was far different than what was portrayed at the Travelodge website. Our room was dingy and shabby, bathroom looked like it hadn’t really been cleaned in ages, and the water in the spa looked so bad that we weren’t about to get in. If I’d been able to find any other accomodations that weekend, I certainly would have, but the Flagstaff tourist season is very busy and there was no other lodging available.

The rates at Travelodge were no more reasonable than other hotels and motels in the area. So if you’re traveling to Flagstaff, I recommend not staying at this Travelodge!!
