Location to Scottsdale Stadium
This property was a little rough around the edges. Employees seemed to do their jobs in only a basic manner, with no real effort to extend themselves. All over the property there were little things that needed cleaning up or fixing, but you could easily see no one ever did such things: Walkways with apparently weeks-old soft-drink spills still sitting there, ALL handrails filthy and just left that way for years. Shower water-control not working properly, but we figured out how to make do. We were there five nights to watch two Spring Training games and tour the area, and this property worked well for those things. We left the property for both day games at 9:00 a.m. and were able to get to the civic center garage next to Scottsdale Stadium (and park in the shade) in ten minutes. With GPS it was easy to get to The Apache Trail and drive that fantastic historic route, which we thought was better than The Road to Hana. We had a significant request that was totally ignored the entire visit -- a second chair was needed in the room. And the housekeepers were friendly but seemed to usually forget a detail or two. There were a lot of kids there, and that in itself is not bad, but 12-year-olds completely dominate the pool for hours, leaving adults no way to enjoy a dip in the 95 degree heat. And, boy, do they make noise at night. Things were noisy until midnight, except for one night. There were also a lot of 30-ish baseball fans there, and they tended to behave about like the 12-year-olds. There is a Mexican restaurant very close and easily walkable, but that's it on the hyper-busy 6-lane street. We ate there three nights and that was plenty. In general, this property HAD everything, but it was very well used, and it showed, and the details were not well taken care of. Oh . . . the front-desk folks were great . . . except for ignoring the chair request. Breakfast room was surprisingly uncrowded considering the number of guests, and that was good. I am writing this from our Las Vegas room, which is in a more upscale property -- not a casino -- and the difference is wonderful. NO noise and much nicer room. Entire property is sparkly clean. We picked La Quinta Phoenix-Arcadia because of its location to Scottsdale Stadium . . . and price. We'll go a little more upscale next time.
My sister and I came to visit an elderly relative so we were gone much of the day but started the day out with the varied breakfast provided. In addition to breakfast included,the grounds were well cared for, the service good, and the rooms were clean.
Our room was facing the street and a little noisy at times but not that bad. We had a problem with picking up the rental car, the place had moved and not told Kayak apparently and then they wouldn't accept the physical damage coverage purchased thru Kayak so after that, we didn't know what to expect at the hotel but were pleasantly surprised.
The bed was fine, clean linens, the gentleman working the front desk was very hospitable
Road noise was incessant all evening, carpets were dirty/outdated. I don't mind outdated carpets, but with outdated carpets comes years of spills. The TV was cable of working in color however only worked in black and white. This hotel is in WAY overpriced (I just staying on the LV strip last week for business at Vdara, for LESS!), and is in a rough part of town. I do NOT recommend this place.
