    « Nice place »

    This was an overnight stay on a roadtrip. Met all our needs. Pleasant greetings on arrival. Clean and comfortable room. Being from the UK the size of rooms are unusually big. This sometimes make furnishings look sparse as it did here. Breakfast was ok and with variety. Check out was quick and simple.

    « Awsume area ! »

    My wife and I went here for a weekend get away and found some great people, restaurants to visit. The area was very beautiful and the resale shops had some very interesting items. We found a bench for our restaurant, that made the wife very happy! The Best western here in Pin Top was the best value for this area near Show low, and the rooms were clean and the people here were the best!

    Very Clean and comfortable, quiet, friendly helpful staff, pet friendly. Great food right next door. A+ We had been disappointed all week in pet friendly, affordable hotels. Best Western hit the mark!

    « Great checkin and breakfast, good value »

    Ask for a room at the back of the hotel. This seems to be a new part of the hotel and quieter, away from the highway. The room was spacious and as advertised. An upgrade was not available. Parking was right outside our door which was super convenient. Laurel was cheerful and a great resource for a good place to eat. Breakfast was hot, lots to choose from and a good variety of fresh unpeeled fruit. Coffee was good, and there is some at the door for a fillup prior to leaving the property.

    Nice large rooms, clean and comfortable. This is a very nice hotel the staff are great. Its has a good location, right next door to a restaurant/lounge which is really convenient after a long drive. The breakfast area is small and sometimes pretty crowed. The breakfast is the standard type of breakfast of rolls, cereal, toast etc.. We've been here a few times. Its a good place to rest nice and quiet.

    I normally prefer to stay in non-franchised places and support smaller businesses, but we got in late and their sign was well lit so we gave them a shot. It was up to normal Best Western standards and our stay was pleasant.

    Staff is really great, facility is old and tired...but, they are going to complete badly needed renovations. They need to restrict certain rooms for pets so others can be comfortable without stinking carpets. They say they clean the room AC filters, but I doubt it

    « SAD SERVICE IN SHOW LOW, AZ »

    Hotel staff cancelled a reservation I made 6 wks in advance without my consent or knowledge. Then as a result I had no room downstairs to accommodate my disability. I was forced into an upstairs room requiring me to climb stairs which is incredibly difficult and painful. Other hotels in the area were fully book due to events in the area leaving me little to no options to secure another place to stay. My rate to stay was also raised by more than 60.00 a day higher than was quoted to me on my original quoted reservation date. TV did not work, Refrigerator did not get cold, and my request for a 5 a.m. wake up call was not met. My stay really stunk top to bottom. One staff person was an absolute jewel and was the saving grace for this location. They are blessed to have her in their employ. Her name is GINA. Thank You Gina for all of you wonderful help and cheerful spirit in spite of all these rotten things you make people happy.

    « Nice Hotel »

    Rooms are larger then most, breakfast area is clean and bright, lobby is clean and bright. The biggest problem is that there are no elevators and even if it is only a two story building you need to be able to carry luggage and climb a story of stairs. Not a good deal if you are seniors and have arthritis. I requested a ground floor unit but was told when I got there that none was available. It was very difficult to climb the stairs and to get our luggage up and down the stairs.

    Great people to stay with. Always a pleasure because they car about you coming to their hotel and coming back. The food is always good and hot with plenty to eat. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The hotel is close to downtown with shopping close. I will be back.

    A very welcoming, friendly hotel. A final stop off on the way to Phoenix airport. What a surprise. A lovely town with lots of walking trails close by. The hotel was beautifully maintained with incredibly friendly, helpful staff. Well appointed, clean rooms. We had a fireplace which was lovely. Excellent, well presented, HOT breakfast. The staff all seem to be so proud of the hotel. Fabulous restaurant next door, excellent value for money.

    « good motel »

    Have stayed here many times in the past. Have found the motel to be clean, staff helpful, and property maintained. It is a older motel, but in good shape. They screwed my rooms up on last stay, and did not offer to make any adjustments on price. Was surprised about this. Overall still like the motel and location.

    « Just a get away »

    From the minute we arrived the service was great. The rooms were very clean. Breakfast was very good. The hotel was in a quite place. Was given booklets of places to visit while on trip and places to eat. The thing that was great Five star was the staff from the minute we arrived till we checked out. The entire staff including the cleaning staff. They had smiling faces were always asking if we needed anything. Thank you for making our stay pleasant. Chris and Pete Kampitsis

    « Best Western Show Low »

    Always a good pick for an overnight stop in Show Low. Good location, well maintained property, next door to a good Mexican restaurant. Also dog friendly if you are traveling with your mutts, decent dog walk area right next to motel. Paint Pony Lodge is a good alternative in Show Low.

    « Reasonable price and a nice quiet motel. »

    Being right on the main drag in Show Low, I was worried about noise but that did not become an issue. I enjoyed my one-night stay and had no complaints of any type. The check-in agent was pleasant and helpful. Later, I appreciated the suggestions by the evening clerk regarding places to try for dinner, one of the options worked-out perfectly. Breakfast options in the lobby are pretty limited but at least they are there; the little waffle maker did its job. An easy 2.5-stars (out of five).

    « Nice stay »

    Room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The air conditioner was a little loud but overall a nice stay. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great. Wifi was a little shaky, lost the signal several times. Within walking distance to restaurants and bars. Reasonable rates, would stay here again.

    « Quiet place »

    Spent one night, it was very quiet except when other visitors dogs woke us up at 6:30:<-oh well. Spacious room that could use some updating though comfy enough. Very bright morning light without any effort to block it so bring your eye masks if you like it dark. Standard breakfast, nice front desk folks. It was so quiet that we did not even use our air/fan and didn't hear a thing almost.

    I had a pleasant stay here. Check-in and check-out was simple and the breakfast was satisfying. The room was nice clean. The location worked great for my visit. The neighboring restaurant was great also.

    « Hard as a rock bed »

    The hotel was a good one, I left a comment for the way the hot water in the handicap room that we had went from hot to ice cold and back and forth and back and forth and the adjustment valve was just not working right along with a very very hard bed. The room was fairly quiet but all the sun light at sun rise blows under the short curtains when one wants to possibly sleep in. Breakfast was great, and Penny the host was great, she made a hotel breakfast look like and taste a million bucks just as if she home made it all for you, a great spread and she is a hoot to chat with as well and told us about the Zip Line excursion which we went to and had a great time, Thanks again Penny hope to see you soon.

    « Fine stay »

    Nothing fancy. We checked in to a room in the front and the traffic was quite loud so we asked to be moved to the back. The room was fine...fridge, microwave, clean, 2 beds. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Free breakfast in the nice front lobby.

    « Best Western I have stayed at »

    The stay at this location is very customer oriented and attentive to all your needs and is willing to help you in any way they can. They have an excellent breakfast served in the morning, the cable went off the TV and a staff member came right up and fixed it. The front desk clerk called her manager to see if I could get and early check in and over all it is the best Best Western I have stayed at. My hats off to the management for having and excellent staff for the hotel.

    « Even with its faults, we will be back. »

    The Good: convenient location on the main drag, about a minute drive to Safeway. Good value for the money - probably the least expensive "decent" lodging in the area. Friendly staff. Hot breakfast available in a nicely kept, very clean dining/serving area. Adequately appointed rooms, WiFi worked for us, ample parking even over a holiday weekend. The Bad: as noted in other reviews, Paint Pony Lodge needs some renovation. A/C unit very noisy and not particularly efficient. Sometimes cleaning staff turns off unit and you return to a hot room. The days of hard or uncomfortable beds are long gone - this place needs to invest in decent, comfortable mattresses. Our room looked reasonably clean, but tile areas turned out to be pretty dirty - I gave the bathroom area a quick wipe-down with my wash cloth and it came up brown. Though friendly, some of the desk staff weren't well-trained. Lots of cracked and chipped cement on walkways and stairs, intermittent outdoor lighting. The Verdict: Even with its warts, Paint Pony Lodge gave us reasonable value for the money. Until something better comes up at this price point, we will return. Hey, maybe the owners will pony up for some much needed upgrade/repair and this will be that something better!

    « An Exceptional Place to Stay »

    From checking in, to the terrific room, bed, WiFi, & all room features, to the exceptionally excellent breakfast, all the kind and friendly attitude and help at any time of ALL the staff, and the kindness to my Service Dog Miss Cinnamon, to the easy and pleasant process of checking out and saying good-bye till next time, Paint Pony Lodge is an example of true excellence. Only place I would stay on my way through Show Low AZ.

    « Not my favorite! »

    This hotel is a little tired and needs some focused attention. I have stayed in other hotels in Show Low and all of them are a better value and a better experience. The bed was very uncomfortable and the air conditioning unit was fairly loud.

    « AARP Members with Mobility Problems? Don't Stay Here »

    All AARP Rate rooms are upstairs and require climbing stairs as this is an older style hotel with all outside facing rooms and no elevator. No exceptions, even for those with handicapped plates or restricted to walkers. Otherwise the positives listed by others are spot on--big modern rooms and a good breakfast, including seasonal fresh fruit to top waffles or cereal. Blackberries, raspberries and blueberries were included during our stay. That pesky AARP Policy though....

    « Good Cheap Stay »

    I was pretty happy with this place for the price. The room was clean and had the necessary amenities. It has a great location, being centrally located on Show Low's main road. The breakfast was a highlight. They had an excellent selection, better than most hotels. Although I wish breakfast was served later. They only served between 6am and 9am, even on the weekend.

    « ALs Stay »

    This is an excellent place to stay if you are in Show Low, AZ, the staff and hotel are excellent, the breakfast offered is awesome. I have stayed at other hotels and this one is by far a great hotel and I plan to stay here again when I travel to Show Low again.

    « Worry free »

    The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and the free hot breakfast was a nice bonus, if you didn't feel like getting in your car and driving somewhere. In all, I would recommend this hotel. Everything was conveniently located, ice machine, lobby. We would stay here again.

    « Very pleasant stay »

    My granddaughter, her baby, my poodle and I stayed overnight at the Best Western in Show Low, AZ. I booked through an internet site. When I checked in, the very nice manager or person in charge gave me an additional military discount which helped greatly. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was good also. I will definitely be returning.

    « Great Rates For Stay-cation.... »

    Booked the king suite which has a jet tub & gas fireplace in full view of tub. Very romantic! Being a business owner, it can be difficult to travel for stress relief. The front desk staff was awesome giving us a significant discounted "locals" rate, early & late check in/out. Really clean, quiet room...just the mini break we needed. Awesome as usual BW!

    « Poorest experience ever »

    People in the room next door were having a party well into the night. I called the front desk 3 times, each call one hour apart. The party simply continued. Due to the thin walls, it was as if the party was in our room. Obviously we were not able to get any sleep. I will never stay here again.

    « Showlow lodging »

    Upon late arrival, the hotel staff was expecting me. They were very quick to get us checked in and were very pleasant. The hotel was clean and quiet even when it was sold out. The air conditioner in the room was a little faulty but it was cool enough to crack the door to ventilate. Nice location.

    « Nice Hotel »

    We had a great experience in the Show Low are and this hotel stay just added to it. Look forward to coming back here to stay for a few days, great get away from the heat in Phoenix. I have just about all the time have had great experiences at the Best Western Hotels. Lately I have not looked much at anyplace else to stay.

    « Pretty Good Experience »

    Got there late at 10pm. The Hotel attendant was on the phone for quite a while, so she did not help us immediatlely. We were tired so that was a little drawback. The room clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice although the lady in charge was a bit rude, did not talk to anyone. And I felt like she was watching our every move. I did not like that. At times the Hotel staff did not acknowledge us. But overall, it was a very nice stay.

    « Not enough handicapped parking »

    This particular BW had only handicapped parking for the two handicap[ped accessible rooms that I saw. The signs in front of the rooms said "handicapped" parking, but did not say the space was designated just for that room. Another car with a handicapped tag was parked in that space but was apparently staying in another room. Hence, there was no handicapped space available for my SUV with a scooter chair on a lift on the tailgate. I will not be staying here again do to the lack of handicapped parking near the room.

    « Very good Best Western »

    They have a good breakfast here. The hotel is always clean, and it's well maintained. Whenever we are traveling in this area, we stay here. It's a good value. The staff is friendly and efficient. This hotel is a good value.

    « A Haven of Kindness »

    As I was driving from our home in Apache Junction AZ up to our cabin north of St Johns AZ, I drove through a sudden and severe rainstorm along the mountain highway along the Mogollon Rim. Being 70 with Post Polio Syndrome, I was exhausted and had to stop in Show Low before going on. I turned in at the friendly-appearing Best Western sign, and my Service Dog Cinnamon and I were quickly welcomed and assisted. A young couple of staff members, I think named Justin Berry and Celeste Henry, quickly got us checked in and over to our room. They carried in the items I needed for overnight, and checked over the room to be sure all was in good working order. They asked me to call if I needed any kind of help. The accommodations and breakfast were wonderful, and next morning I was recovered enough to be on my way. And my lovely Cinnamon my Service Dog enjoyed walking in your woods quite a bit. I shall let all my friends and organizations I belong to know that I have found the perfect place to stay in Show Low AZ! And I thank you with all my heart.

    « Older...but nice »

    The staff was extremely pleasent. It was an older establishment but clean considering. I was able to walk to a nearby park that was absolutely beautiful. I accidentally chose a smoking room and there was no other availability so they were nice enough to give me the room that had the least smell and a can of Febreeze.

    « Will likely come back again. »

    Stayed here while grandkids camped at Fool Hollow on Mem Day weekend. Very convenient. Very helpful front desk folks & breakfast above average with hot eggs, bacon, sausage. Lobby and breakfast area nicely done. We had a room facing the road which we thought would present a noise problem but no complaints, good sound proofing.

    « Their hard work shows »

    Every area we spent any time in was clean, whether inside or out. We stayed in 23 different motels/hotels during a 42-day trip and this was the cleanest of any. The size of the room was so much better than most and the amenities are up to date. We appreciate a larger bathroom counter and separate toilet/shower from the sink area. The breakfast is the usual complimentary meal and not that special but the staff was nice along with every one else there. Thanks for the nice stay.

    « Family Visit »

    Stayed at Paint Pony Lodge for two nights during a family visit. After check in, requested a different room and the staff was very accommodating. We did not want to be near the top of the stairs. We have stayed before and as usual our room was very clean. The breakfast is adequate with eggs, sausage and fresh fruit available.

    This establishment had what we always look for....exterior corridors with parking outside the door, wash basin outside toilet/bath area, micro, fridge, very clean and very comfortable bed. The room lacked a second chair and space to move the desk/table in front of the tv to eat at, so we ate out.

    « dissapointed »

    I booked this property based on the high rating on tripadvisor. While this is not a bad property, I was very disappointed. Mattress very old and sagging on the side most used, ( side adjacent to the alarm clock). Older building that had undergone upgrades but still had some areas in need of replacement like the overhead light/fan in the bathroom. I found it amusing that a blank maintenance request form was left in the guest directory. I guess it saves time that way. Fill it out so they don't have to take the time to check. The employees that I did come in contact with were very friendly and the room was clean. It appears that utility crews for large companies (power maybe?)book rooms on a regular basis during the week. This means that their large trucks make quite a noise when they are leaving in the morning, also thought that a group of them sitting outside of a room drinking beer was probably not the greatest marketing strategy for the property.

    « Clean, friendly, affordable »

    From check in to check out this was a pleasant experience. The front desk staff checked us in quickly and efficiently, the room was spacious and clean. It is within walking distance of places to eat and shop. Price to stay overnight was fair considering the location and being on a weekend.

    I was given a room facing the check in office. If I were to stay again, I would ask for a room in the back.

    « Quick Getaway »

    Arrived on a Sunday evening and was quickly greeted and issued a room. I had commented I wanted a first floor room but was issued a second floor room. Upon my verbal request, it was changed. My question, do hotels get our comments and request? It's my second time with this issue. The room was very clean and good size. Our two mountain bikes fit with out a problem. The hotel maybe a bit old, but well maintained. The location is towards the end of the city on the west side but still close to most everything. Breakfast was pretty good, though we didnt benefit from it. We hit the trails early. Back to location, it was our first time out this way. Hotels on hwy 260 may be a little more charming and the experience of the elk is awesome. I will be back.

    The room rates were reasonable. The rooms were spacious and clean and comfy. Coffee pot, iron & ironing board provided. The beds were comfortable but not the pillows. Our pillows were "hard" and our necks were sore the next morning. We found out after the fact that we could have asked for softer pillows. Nice full breakfast provided. The staff was very friendly. Audra made our reservations and she was delightful to work with. We had a room facing the highway but could not hear traffic. Quiet rooms. The Mexican restaurant next door had awesome food.

    « A snotty Nose ruined a good day. »

    Road into town late 9PM, assigned a clean, comfortable room on the front side of the hotel. It was not very noisy with the room that close to the road. Check in staff was friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the water hot. Plenty of towels to be had. The problem was at breakfast, the food was hot and plentiful and the milk was cold, but one of the hotel employees with a bad cold and a runny nose came into the breakfast area, went around the corner and blew their nose for what seemed like five minutes. TERRIBLE and NASTY. They then poured a cup of milk , drank it, then took the milk container and two boxes of cereal back to their table and ate leaving the container on the table. Then rudolph red nose hotel employee blew their nose again. Check out went smoothly and down the road we went, they even gave us a newspaper. Good place to stay.

    Wish we had more than one night at this lovely location and comfortable room. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast contained several choices of hot and cold breakfast foods. The room was fairly large with a comfortable king-size bed and chair.

    « Perfect »

    We got stuck in Show Low on our way to Greer on our honey moon. We have nothing but good things to say about everyone we encountered, especially at the Best Western. We were welcomed with kindness and speedy service. They understood our situation and made it less stressful for us to be having to make alternate travel plans. The room was excellent and clean and super comfortable. I highly recommend staying here!

    « Good place to stay if you are in the area »

    I was part of a group on deployment in eastern AZ. The hotel was a nice quiet clean place to put your head down. It is very conveniently located and within reach of neighbouring towns. Having spent the previous night in St. John, this was a welcome break

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    Room felt clean. Lobby was tidy and clean. This is a motel style property, so the room access is directly from the outside, not from a hallway. Despite this, the room was quiet and comfortable. No gym or pool that we found, but that's okay. We would stay here again.

    I have been staying at Best Western Paint Pony for many years now and I will continue to do so for many years to come. The staff is always friendly, caring and helpful. They all go out of their way to make sure I am well taken care of during each and every stay. Thank you so much and keep up the good work!

    « Very comfortable! »

    Stayed at this BW while we were fly fishing Silver Creek. Very nice for the price and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and had a good variety of hot and cold items. Very friendly staff. Will stay there again. This last part I'm adding because the format requires 200 words.

    « Convenient and Clean »

    We chose this particular hotel because of its close proximity to the auto dealership that we needed to use. The hotel was recommended to us by the tow-truck driver and companion and was as they said. Very clean and pet friendly.

    « Great Hotel »

    We had a great experience. the room was clean and comfortable. Our only complaints were the low shower pressure and the bed was very firm, but we like a soft bed. we had a fireplace room and it was a great addition to our trip.

    The hotel is very nice and has a history to go with it. It has been upgraded somewhat but could install new shower heads. The lobby is very cozy and clean. The internet is slow so don't expect to use it for any large downloads.

    Was very pleased with the room and staff. Helpful in pointing out great places to eat. Will definetly stay there again! We checked out all the available hotels on Yelp as we were driving into town and we were very happy to find Paint Pony Lodge had wonderful revues. This was or last stop on our way into Mesa and the staff even helped me load my daughter wheelchair into the car in the morning when we left.

    Fairly to modernly good motel to stay at for one night. First of all we were looking for an economical and affordable place to stay for the night and this motel was recommended for a family member. We were advised that the place was a bit cold so we contact the motel during our reservation and request for more blanket and they were more than willing to accommodate us. We were happy about this.

    « Nice stay during the holiday »

    My wife and I had a nice stay here during the Christmas holiday. We brought our dog with and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was clean and well kept during our stay. We did not try the breakfast so I cannot comment. The WIFI was okay and did not have any major slowness. Will definitely stay here again when we return to visit Show Low.

    « First time in Show Low »

    Traveling with an English Bulldog is tricky when finding Hotels and this one was so easy to book and check in. Lobby and staff nice, breakfast filling with some variety and the nicest lady, Peggy, hosting. Room looked and smelled clean, exterior was swept daily and bed was comfortable. Value was good, and we would stay there again next trip.

    « WOW.......Exceeded Expectations!! »

    Don't let the age of this facility fool you. Our room was completely refurbished from the front door to the tile in the bathroom and everything in between, new carpet, shower, sink, furniture, bed, microwave, refrigerator, etc. Nice flat screen TV. Free Wi-Fi. Check out the pictures on their website. We were greeted like family when we arrived with warm cookies right out of the oven, ice water w/lemon, coffee, or hot chocolate. Loved the way the lobby was decorated. Breakfast was good, food was hot and fresh. Everyone was super friendly. As a bonus, there is a great restaurant right next door that you can walk to.

    This motel was great. The room was very large and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the staff was extremely helpful. We had a problem with our little dog and they were very helpful in helping us try to find a vet late on a Saturday night. We would recommend this motel to anyone!!

    We were very surprised at the cleanliness of this hotel. Our room was more updated that we expected. Our room was on the ground floor and it was quiet. Be aware there is no elevator to the 2nd floor. We looked at the breakfast but skipped, standard fare. Considering Show Low is a small town, we were very pleased.

    « Great Hotel, Awesome Staff!!!!! »

    Friendly staff, great environment, good breakfast. Would stay here every time. I stay at this hotel often, the staff are friendly and seem to enjoy what they do. The breakfast is free and a great bargain. They have waffles, fruit, muffins, biscuits, eggs, or just cereal if you want.

    This was a very nice Hotel. Very clean everything is up to date no missing lampshades no mismatch furniture everything worked . Peggy the woman that was working at the breakfast bar, was very kind and sweet I highly recommend this hotel not like all the other ones we've had the unfortunate experience at staying at. I just wish there was a way of finding out who owns and runs the various hotels we've stayed at on this trip this is the first one that was not on by Middle Easterners that's why everything works and is clean and maintained.

    « Nice place --Poor Management »

    We are a group of 10 cars, made reservations months in advance. When we arrived not all rooms were ready. Had to wait while most of our group were registered. NOT like they were not expecting us. Gave NO priority to having our rooms ready when we arrived. If you are a group, pass on this ill managed motel.

    « Always love this hotel »

    My room was superb! Well decorated, roomy and comfortable. Even had a fireplace. Breakfast was tasty, well presented, clean and plentiful. I would prefer having bacon once in awhile instead of the link sausage, but I'm not complaining! The staff is super friendly and helpful.

    Super clean, super comfortable, nice breakfast. Sink and bathroom were real up to date. Just avoid the rush for breakfast...the breakfast area is just not large enough to handle a high volume of people.

    « Nice little Lodge when needed. »

    We went up to Show Low to look at my brothers new property and had to stay in a nearby hotel/motel. This little motel met our needs easily. It is in a great location to see the surrounding areas and is a clean property. It isn't a resort so don't plan on that. But if you want a clean, reliable lodge then this is your ticket. We will stay again when in the area.

    « Just Average »

    The room was large but no comfortable furniture. Bed was average. Breakfast area is way undersized. Many guests standing and waiting for a place to sit. Probably the best thing about this property is that it is right next door to an excellent restaurant.

    Got in late and checked in without any issues. Friendly staff, lobby clean, bright and inviting. Although the hotel is older everything was in great working order, clean rooms, quiet, close to rain road. Breakfast was typical BW; good food quick and hot.

    « Clean, nice environment, outstanding staff »

    What a great experience we had from a nice large room, to a cozy attmosphere. The staff were very warm and friendly. The staff took time to say 'hello' and check on our needs when we saw them. The hotels towels were big and made of quality thickness (that is where some hotels skip but we like nice towels). The bed was comfortable for us! The reasteraunt next door allowed our dogs on their patio and offered us the exact same quality service that anyone got. We ate there 3 times and we were happy with prices and service and the outstanding food! Thank you for allowing well behaved dogs into your establishment!
