We stayed at the Desert Oasis for 2 nights while traveling with 2 teen-aged kids. The rooms are all suites that feel like mini apartments complete with in-room washer and dryer. The room was extremely clean, and the beds were comfortable. The exterior property was well kept, but it was nothing fancy. It reminded me of my old Phoenix area apartment complex. The pool was nice and had a nice grill/snack bar which came in handy at lunch time, although it was nothing fancy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The property is located in an area that is out of the way, although this was not a problem for us as there is a strip mall/restaurant on every corner in the Phoenix area. Our room was quiet and we had no road noise, etc. During our stay the hotel was occupied by mostly retired folks, however it was a school week. I would say the best part of our stay was the price - $114 per night was a great price for this level of hotel. It was a great place to spend a couple of nights, however, when we return to Phoenix for spring break, we will probably stay at one of the resorts with a bigger pool and more high-energy teen friendly feel like the Pointe Squaw Peak.

Thank you for your review of our resort! October is a lovely time to visit Scottsdale and we're happy you and your kids were able to relax by the pool. Our resort is a little bit more high energy around spring break time so if you change your mind and wish to return to the Desert Oasis, we'd be happy to welcome you back! Again, thank you for the kind and informative review and enjoy Scottsdale when you return in March!

It was all that and then some. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, it was centrally located and convenient to everywhere, east, west, north and south. The room was lovely, the bed was inviting and the tub nice. The staff was friendly and helpful in getting me where I needed to go. I HIGHLY recommend staying there and I hope to be back in the future.

My wife and I spent a night here after meeting friends for dinner in Scottsdale, as we did not want to drive home to Tucson, where we live. We got a very good rate on a "villa" - I'd guess about 800-900 square feet - because September is off-season in Arizona. The Desert Oasis is an older complex, but it is well kept up. Our suite was clean and nicely furnished, in a 1980s way -- I'd say over-furnished, but that's a matter of personal preference. The suite included a small kitchen with a stove and refrigerator plus a tiny stacked clothes washer and dryer. The bedroom was huge, and included a large jacuzzi tub, which we did not take advantage of. Overall, we thought it was a fine place to stay for one night, although I don't think I'd buy a timeshare here.

Two notable oddities. First, the lighting. There were well over a dozen wall-mounted and ceiling fixtures, with about 18 light switches to control them. Switches were placed oddly, almost at random, so we had a hard time figuring out which switches controlled which lights. Second, the toilet is equipped with a pressurized "power flush" system that sounds like a small bomb is going off when you flush! You can hear toilets from adjacent units with no trouble.

Still, all in all, we thought this was a pleasant place to stay -- especially at off-season rates.

My wife and I traveled to Scottsdale, AZ for our vacation this year, and decided to stay at the Sheraton Desert Oasis Scottsdale location Aug 14 thru Aug 21... we had always wanted to travel to to Arizona, but we were sorta hesitant about the heat this time of year ... so, as this was our first time in Scottsdale and the Phoenix area, we decided on this location from the comments and photos ... we already are timeshare owners at another resort and traded for this resort ...

What can I say ... the resort amenities were as advertised!! We were not disappointed!!

The front desk, concierge desk, maintenance crew ... heck everybody ... made our stay wonderful ... everyone there was friendly and courteous ...

As a matter of fact, we loved it so much, we decided to become owners!!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We cannot wait to return next May!

I can not say enough about this hotel. This was our second trip and we have already booked our next week. The property is so well maintained and every detail is attended to. It is a family resort so there is no "night life" or restaurant on property. However, there is a full kitchen and about 70 restaurant within a few miles. This is a fantastic place for a relaxing get away and a great hotel to stay if you want to explore Arizona.
