This motel is in a beautiful location, surrounded by mountains and pine forests in central Arizona, and the motel itself is the nicest I've stayed in. The man at the front desk was most kind, courteous, and helpful to this older traveler, and immediately offered me the closest downstairs room when I mentioned a walking impairment. The room was beautiful,...

Mrs Patel the manager/owner, was rude and very unhelpfull, we had an adjoining room to ours that we could not lock the door, Mrs Patel said she would get it fixed but that never happened. the main doors to all the rooms were taped over with clear tape, so anyone could walk in, leaving us feeling very uncomfortable.

We stop in here.for some R+R after a hike from rim to rim in the.Grand Canyon and it was just what the doctor ordered. A hot tub and pool to soak in and.not a lot.of people. Nice.little breakfast, hot shower and.only $62. Who says no to that?! A pretty quiet place.for being so close to the action in town.
