Welcome to the Best Western Desert Oasis! From Quartzsite, AZ to Blythe, CA, our Ehrenberg hotel is close to all of the top attractions of the region, including the Colorado River for water recreation. I-10 AZ is next to our Ehrenberg hotel, but we're still far enough from the highway that guests can enjoy a quiet, peaceful stay. Our great price and good service are reflected in top Trip Advisor ratings, and nearby gas prices at the California border are something our guests enjoy taking advantage of. Located at the Colorado River, there's no shortage of adventure to be had near our Ehrenberg hotel, including boating, jet skiing and rafting. From the rock and gem festival in January and February to the exciting racing in Blythe, CA, there's something for the entire family. After a full day of exploration, it's important that travelers have a home away from home that's comfortable, clean and convenient. Our recently renovated property is one of the nicest in the area. Friendly staff members are committed to making every guest's stay enjoyable. There are many local eateries nearby, but leave breakfast to us. Our daily, free breakfast includes corned beef, biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, sausage and hash browns. Complete your meal with a cup of 100% Arabica coffee or cold juice. There are also a number of business travelers who regularly stay at our Ehrenberg hotel. A few include workers in town with solar plant construction, the prison system, traveling nurses and doctors with Blythe hospital and Pilot truck drivers escorting oversized loads. If you're in town on business, rest assured that you'll have a spacious, well-appointed room with us. Book a quality room at the Best Western Desert Oasis, and enjoy a great location combined with quality renovations! We are a Pet Friendly Hotel with a small fee of $10 per pet per night. We have a designated pet section. Our spa is not available until further notice. The Business Center is currently being renovated. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    « Can't beat the location »

    If you are traveling LA<->PHX, and need a place to break overnight, this is it. Clean room, kind staff. Breakfast was good - tasty cheese omelet, bacon, pancakes. The fitness center was pretty good, but needs a pull-up bar.

    « do not stay here, manager is fraudulent, She charged me a fraudulent pet cleaning fee & refused to refund it to me. »

    Manager Beatrice refused to reimburse me a $50 pet cleaning fee when I discovered it on my bank statement 3 days later. I do not have a pet. She said she should have charged me $100 when I call her about it.. She is running a scam at this motel! I called customer service & they sided with the manager. Best western customer service is worthless! Do not risk your bank account staying at this Best Western motel in Ehrenberg, Arizona!

    « Breakfast was superb....the rest... »

    This motel is clean, utilitarian and not good value in hindsight now that I have tried others in their price range. The front desk argued with me about the fee for my dog which I had called the front desk about prior to making the reservation online the previous week. But I guess the front desk is always right whomever you speak to there. Of course the room smelled of smoke, but the cleaner was very helpful and sprayed the room and helped open the window to get some fresh air in the room. I'd drive on to Phoenix or use another hotel chain next time.

    « GREAT HOTEL »

    Wow, what a nice property! This hotel is very clean inside and out. The parking area has cement and is very clean and attractive. Our king room was clean and spacious with a sofa and very nice furnishings. The gal that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The mattress was high quality and very comfortable. The breakfast had a good selection too. We would certainly return the next time we are in the area.

    « Very good for location »

    We had to stop here on the drive to LA when weather set in. We were surprised that the hotel was so nice when it was basically beside a truck stop. Clean, quiet and nice. Not much opportunity for hotels in this area so this is one to j=keep in mind between Phx and LA.

    « Not A Secure Place To Take Your Family »

    Not a secure place to take your family. The staff are not there to assist you and your family unfortunately. It's clear to an outsider view that they are unhelpful and combative. Tip: Some of your room items will be broken when you come into the room (be sure you take dated pictures prior like we did to show them in court), then you call to inquire what a ghost charge is on your card, and you get the response ?I don't have to tell you what I'm charging you for? followed by the manager of the establishment hanging up on you. It's just the facts of how the staff runs their business model. So just be prepared and you should be fine. Also, 3 days after leaving their establishment, they charged through an additional room charge for $83 for whatever reason.

    « Happy Snow Birds »

    We always stop here on our drive from Canada to Cabo and back because of the friendly, dependable BW service, comfort, location and convenience of getting on and off the highway. The ongoing attention to the property appearance and maintenance is obvious and makes for a good impression on arrival. The breakfast is a great value and a welcome convenience before we hit the road again. Thanks Oasis!

    « Good location »

    This hotel is being remolded. But we were still able to walk in just fine. The front desk person was busy, but she was attentive to the customers. There was plenty of parking in front and back. Early in the evening we had noisy neighbors, but then they went to sleep and it was OK. We had a large new TV with lots of channels. A small frig and microwave. The beds were comfortable. Sink was outside of the bathroom. The shower worked well and had good pressure. The room was very clean. The breakfast in the morning was the usual. Waffles, oatmeal, rice chex, eggs, sausages & fresh fruit. I did appreciate that they had soy milk and both regular and greek yogut. The staff made sure no food ran out. The hotel was fully booked. Right next door is a Flying J truck stop and their food items were reasonable, including bottled water. Our room was in the back of the building, we did not hear any truck traffic at all. We would stay here again, because of the reasonable price, clean room and friendly staff.

    « Was Somewhat Underwhelmed »

    Based on my experience at other Best Western, and many of the reviews, I was expecting better. It felt like a gussied up 2-star. Internet was above average. No idea what breakfast was like as I arrived at 7pm after an 800 mile drive, crashed out and left the next morning at 5am. It served its purpose: a bed for the night. But I felt it as $10-20 more than it was worth for that.

    « Best hotel I ever stayed in »

    my Husband and I go on weekend trips. we have stayed in dozens of Hotels, some Cheap, some expensive. This was by far the best hotel with the best service we ever stayed in. Queen beds with 5 pillows each. ,Clean carpet, fridge w freezer! microwave, full tub and shower, exercise room with state of the art stepper, treadmill, cycle.and combination equipment that allll worked. great breakfast, waffles, hard eggs and omelets, rolls, toast, biscuits and gravy. One staff member stayed in the breakfast area to constantly refill food and coffee for guests. and a free bag of ice when we left! The service was amazing, I wish I could transplant that hotel into every town we ever stayed at.

    « Reeked of Cleaning Solutions »

    We have been staying at this hotel for years now to attend the gem shows in Quartzite and on our way to the Tucson Gem show and always found our stay to be pleasant and reasonably priced. The room was nice and clean and the beds comfy, but this time it smelled like sewer around the outside periphery and the halls reeked of Lysol or some sort of chemical. There used to be cookies out in the evening and now it's only at a certain time and too bad if you missed out. The coffee left out in the lobby is lukewarm in one of those plastic jug type containers. The lemon drink was tasty though. The breakfast offerings have really gone down hill. The coffee urns that kept coffee nice and hot were replaced by those plastic coffee jugs. The biscuits used to be big and fluffy and instead we were greeted by anemic overcooked hard tiny biscuits and wilted ham that looked like Canadian bacon instead of the sausage. The yogurt was more GMO chemicals than milk product. At least the cereal was labeled made with GMO ingredients as a warning. The tiny muffin and danish didn't even taste like food but some sort of strange starch like texture with sugar. I had to throw it out. It seemed like fake food, oh, and not to mention we had the pleasure of being bombarded with CNN fake news as a perfect accompaniment. Isn't this Arizona, why are we hearing fake news?? I did notice an attendant who watched over the breakfast room and greeted you as you left. Nice thought but it doesn't make up for a bad breakfast. The jacuzzi didn't work again. I think it has worked twice since we have been going to this hotel. I heard they might just fill it in. I have to say the exercise room is enclosed and air conditioned now with water, towels, tv and decent equipment for a Best Western. I didn't use it this time but I did on our previous stay. I will probably stay here again because it is convenient, quiet and I am not a big fan of Blythe. Since last year I have noticed a general slow decline in all the Best Westerns we have stayed in on our travels. What's going on??

    « Great location to stay at for the Quartzite rock show »

    As Best Western Rewards members we always try to stay at a BW while traveling and this location served as an excellent choice while down in the area for the annual rock show at Quartzite, AZ. Super convenient location, excellent breakfast, quiet rooms with very comfortable beds.

    « Very nice BW »

    Impressed with this Best Western! Exceptionally clean, nice breakfast and very friendly front desk. A very nice room - comparable to much more expensive hotels. Great bed with lots of pillows. Very nice variety for breakfast - including soy milk (yeah!) for people who can't do regular milk. An exceptional value for the money. Great!

    « Decent Truck Stop Hotel »

    This was a good stopping point for us between LA and Sedona. It is at a truck stop, but it was fairly clean. The only reason I qualify that is because I noticed a spot of black mold in the shower grout. There is no elevator, so if you aren't good with stairs be sure to request the 1st floor. The breakfast was good with a waffle station. The service was fine, although it took a long time to find someone to help us check in. There was another worker in the lobby waiting for her ride home after her shift and she had to go find the person actually working to help. I would only consider staying again if it was really cheap.

    « Delivers for a small price tag »

    We stayed only 1 night, but found the accommodations to exceed our expectations for the price we paid. Beds were comfortable, room was clean and felt safe, shower was hot, complementary breakfast offered a variety of options, and the fitness center provided a solid workout. The staff was courteous and friendly. Thank you!

    « Nice stay, comfy beds »

    After reading several reviews from dissatisfied customers, we were not sure what to expect. The hotel rooms were nice and the beds were comfy, we had no complaints. We had a nice stay and I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this hotel to others as well.

    We found this hotel to be very clean and quiet with ample parking. We traveled with a disabled person and they were accommodating in meeting our needs. The staff was polite and professional. We would be pleased to stay there again.

    « Named the Oasis for good reason »

    A very nice hotel with only a truck stop nearby, we had to drive to Blythe for everything. Although Ehrenberg did have the better gas prices. If you do find yourself in Blythe, do try the A&R Bakery Deli. Great sandwiches. Also, if you enjoy wildlife viewing, this is close to Cibola Natl Refuge.

    « Quiet and Plesant »

    We had a nice quiet room that is huge clean and tidy. The staff are friendly polite and helpful. We've stayed at a lot of Best Westerns and this location will definitely be on out to stay list again. We were close to several activities. Our favorite was Buck Owens Crystal Palace. Stampede, the band really rocked out some hot'diggity Western tunes. Even though we were arriving back to Best Western late in the evening, we were not concerned as the parking lot is well lit!

    « No water »

    The Hotel had no water during our stay. This was a planned outage and we were not notified in advance. We were not offered a adjustment by the hotel staff. It's very hard to sleep when you know you can't use the toilet or take a shower in the morning.

    A very nice hotel with all the amenities without a break the bank price. Nice clean rooms and an excellent breakfast served.

    « Rude interaction with General Manager »

    My husband and I are on a road trip to Tucson, Arizona. We always stay at Best Western since they are one of the most "pet friendly" chains. I made a mistake (and I own that mistake) on booking my reservation on the internet. End result, I was charged for two nights at the Desert Oasis. One night was an error on my part and the second night we actually stayed at the Desert Oasis. Totally understand that the hotel is not under any obligation to accommodate or provide relief for my error. What I do think is that the hotel can respond in a customer service friendly manner when discussing the situation with me. Mr, Sorice was, in my opinion, rude and dismissive. There isn't a lot of incentive to treat customers well who are traveling through the area. And, as consumers, we don't have any leverage other than to offer our feedback as consumers. My feedback is that the customer service provided by Mr. Sorice was disappointing and perhaps that behavior and style represent the hotel management and owner. We will be traveling through this area again and will definitely not stay at this hotel.

    « Amazing show of people that care! »

    My elderly father came into the Ehrenburg AZ BW Hotel with a back injury and unable to complete the journey to Tucson. I can not begin to thank the staff for their "above the call of duty" help. They helped him physically get to his room and in/out of the vehicle. They offered late checkout, extra towels/pillows, etc., and the woman at the front desk even brought him homemade cookies when he had to stay an extra day. Simply amazing!

    « Ok »

    Stopped here for the night on our trip to California. Check in was quick and easy. Room was basic, nothing overly exciting. Wanted to jump into the hot tub after a long drive just to find it broken. Got up a little late and went to get some breakfast, it was 5 minutes till closing and found the room locked. Knocked on the door and hostess answered, she said "we're closed" and shut the door in my face. If you need a overnight stop and not expecting much I suppose this place is ok.

    « Rude staff »

    We travel back and forth from the Bay Area to Tucson frequently and usually stay at the BW in Blythe. I took a chance this time due to BW points usage and stayed at the Desert Oasis...NEVER AGAIN!!! We stayed one night and the morning we were leaving I tried to get in the breakfast room for coffee and juice, I did not want any food. Even though it was only 9:01 the door was locked. A fellow guest saw me and opened the door. The minute I walked in a staff person practically body blocked me and very loudly told me that ?breakfast is closed?. I explained that all I wanted was coffee and juice both of which were still on the counter along with all the other food that had not been put away yet. She again practically yelled at me that ?breakfast is closed!!? If this is the kind of ?guest service? that the Desert Oasis thinks is appropriate I feel sorry for the people that stay here. I for one will never stay again!

    Historically I had used motel 6 due to uniformed expectations, however I never really felt safe but used them anyway as my stay overs were short. At BW I felt safe and found that BW is far better in every aspect and greater value for services offered. I will be looking for BW during my future trips.

I'll be dreaming of the waffles until we come back! Thanks to all the staff, we had a wonderful stay and we will be back often and soon!

    « Worst Experience Bad Smell »

    Stay here if you like the smell of sewage in the hallway, and your room all night. The hotel is right next door to a sewage treatment. I also had friends stay here, and the air conditioner would come on and off all night long, the room would not get below 79 degrees. Also watch out for rooms that say pet friendly, even though you dont have a pet, if you get a room that says pet friendly, they will charge you for a pet, even though you did not mark down any pets, and even inform the manager I did not have a pet, they will still charge you.

    « Too hot to sleep »

    Need to fix the air conditioning problem! Especially for being in a desert location.The staff was very polite in advising nothing could be done to correct the problem. Had I known that the air conditioners in the rooms were working poorly I would have sought other accommodations. A small unreadable sign at the check-in counter explaining the problem that 95% of customers would not notice,or those booking on line would never see is a good way to mislead customers. People need to now this before booking!

    I am a Best Western rewards member, so I stay at Best Westerns whenever possible. I had work in the area, so I was pleased to find this hotel close by. They were in the process of renovations, so there was some construction debris and dust outside, but the lobby and room were clean. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive to my needs. The room was modern and clean. Shower was okay. Bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows. The breakfast was great. Many choices and all fresh and well prepared.

    We had driven from Pomona, CA on a very hot day and this did feel like an oasis. We had planned to continue on to Tucson and found this hotel on TripAdvisor and decided to stop early and were glad we did. Check-in was a breeze and we were each given a chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven. Yummy. The room was clean and comfortable and we got an excellent night's sleep. There was a well-equipped exercise room which is nice after sitting in the car so long. The breakfast was very good.

    Always have a good experience at BW. Even the older buildings are better than other motels in the same $ range in my opinion. Rewards program works with CLC too, and easy to check your points online. Give them a try.

    « Clean and Convenient. »

    This is the property where we stay when we're heading to Arizona from Northern California. It's a great point to stay and is convenient from the highway. The property is very clean. Not a lot of places nearby to eat, but you're close enough to find dining a short drive away.

    « sink/vanity IN room!!! »

    fine in many ways - newish, clean - but the design of having sink/vanity in the room (so your partner TV watcher sitting on the bed can criticize your teeth-flossing style) is BAD. And then to go into the tiny shower/ commode "closet" - you need sunglasses because the light is so bright - and you also need earplugs because the fan is so LOUD. And...NO night light - so if you want a crack of light during the night - you have to listen to the fan! A plus - a window that opens! My pet peeve - that conventional hotel reviews don't mention details of 1. a window that opens and 2. sink IN the room -

    Clean, clean and clean...this place was perfect. We needed a one night stay on our way to Tucson from LA. We got there late, woke up had breakfast and left. We were impressed with the cleanliness inside and out. Great value! We would definitely stop again.

    This hotel is much nicer than it looks like outside. My only suggestion would be to get longer pillows. Breakfast was a typical hotel spread. But a very clean place. I will definitely stay again on my way to CA.

    « A true Oasis in the desert »

    This is our second time here. There is plenty of parking even for large vehicles, the temperature was over 100 degrees so we quickly entered the lobby. Check in was friendly, prompt & quick. We asked for & received a quiet room on the second floor in the rear of the building. The room was large with a micro wave, small refrigerator & large wall mounted TV. Everything including the bathroom was very clean. We ate our take out meal from the Rebel BBQ Restaurant. (Not recommended, see our review) and we slept on a very comfortable mattress. We asked the manager the next morning and found out it was a Sealy mattress. Breakfast was very good, eggs, sausage, hash brown potatoes, juices, cold cereal, biscuits & gravy, etc. I did not like the coffee, but I admit to being a coffee snob. The air conditioner was very quiet & kept the room comfortable. Checkout was as smooth as check in & we consider it a great value for the price, and we highly recommend stopping here. Tips: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room in the rear of the building. The motel is adjacent to a Flying J truck stop with heavy large and noisy vehicles. We did not hear any noise inside the building. If you are driving to or from California, gas up in Arizona. The price was on average 45 cent a gallon cheaper for premium. We used to gas up at the Flying J, but prefer gas with the Top Tier spec. We found a 76 gas station close by using the GasBuddy app on our iPad.

    This is a convenient and easy stop when you are traveling across Arizona and California. Not much to do in the area, but the rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.

    « Great place to stay!! »

    We have been staying in this best western for last 10 years (summers) now. This is my favorite place, my kids love it and they are pet friendly so even my 4 legged kid loves it! (Thats important cause she is part of the family) The staff is always friendly and helpful and very respectful. The rooms are big and clean, the AC is very cold which is great coming from spending all day at the river, plenty of parking (even with my trailer attached). The bfast is one of the best I have tasted for a "free continental bfast" (compared to other continental bfasts) and you have to try the biscuits and gravy! The only issue I have is that the pool is out of service at times, which kjnda ruins the night, the hot tub is usually always out of service as well...... But since we are there to enjoy the river, it only bothers us a little. The kids love going across the parking lot to buy junk food and fast food at wendys, we never had any "criminal issues" while staying there and the gas to fill up your water toys is always cheap! Compared to other motels/hotels in the area, I give this place a 8 out if 10 (and that is because of the pool/hit tub issues) Over all a great place to build great family memories, we will definitely keep returning to this place hopefully for many years! Bestwestern also gives out gift card for spending nights with them so that also a great pluses ....

    « 24 hour service - really! »

    We were traveling to Arizona and got a very late start. I called to confirm our arrival. We did not pull in until after 5am and someone was there to check us in. In most small motels like this, attendants have to be woken up for late service. It was a pleasure to have someone awake, aware and ready to check us in. And they even took the time to pre-cool our room!

    When I travel and need to make an unplanned stop, I prefer to look for Best Western properties because they tend to be consistent. While I have no expectations going to a new property, this one surprised me. It was very clean, the decor was nice, and it was VERY QUIET! Being right off of a major highway, I expected some noise, but couldn't hear a thing. Had a great night's sleep.

    « Great service and great value; very clean »

    The staff here was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a great value, too, since I had just come from California where everything was very expensive. This town was right on the border of Arizona and California, so definitely saved some money by crossing over into Arizona! The breakfast was good, but the breakfast room was very hot. Not sure if they were just having problems with the AC that day, but the lady working in there was so sweet that she made up for it and I could deal with the heat for the short time I was in there. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Acceptable @ price »

    The service was not overwhelming... but the room was ok for a one night stay. Breakfast room was a little too small and warm. The pool was ok, apart from all the drowned bees. The room was clean and the beds fine. Rest room lacked paper, first time I have experienced that.

    « One night that's it »

    We were very excited to stay as the outside looked really good. The room was big and ok. Some things that turned me off. I felt like every time I was walking I was disturbing the people below us the floor echoed so loud. The shower could use a major remodel! Hardly any water pressure and the tub it self looked old. There is no cold water in the sink at all. Makes for brushing your teeth in hot water fun! Something really bothered me. We went to go swimming in the outdoor pool in the late evening. The entire pool was covered with dead bees in and around it and live ones all over the place. My son is highly allergic to bees so this was a huge disappointment. Although I understand you can't control nature but there obviously things you can do. Such as making sure the garbage cans around the property are emptied in a timely manner. EVERY single garbage can outside on the property was overflowing with garbage. So in 110 degree weather you can imagine it doesn't smell very nice and helps attract all the bees. I went to the front desk to ask for a net for the pool. The girl at the counter was less than pleased to help. However she did locate one and my daughter went in the pool with the net and scooped out all the dead bees so my son didn't have to miss out on swimming. The bed in the room was low and worn it sagged in the middle. For $80 you need to do better!

    A basic Best Western. Water pressure so poor that water from shower head fell vertically a bit like a weedy tap/faucet...difficult to wash under! Tap was held on with white silicone & wobbled. 4 tiny pillows...I constantly felt I was falling off my pillow! Room furniture was coming apart. Noisy night with disturbance from herd of elephants above us. Was surprised to be able to hear conversation & tv from next room. Room fridge was very noisy through night!!! Chambermaid/room attendant woke me at 7:50hrs, Sat morning as she knocked up/checked rooms were empty....bit early don't you think!!!! Her envelope request for payment was left with nothing from me!!! Breakfast was un-appetising and noisy too Wouldn't stay here again.

    The photos might be lying as the hotel is in the middle of a parking lot/service area near the freeway entrance. The hotel is suitable for one night stays, but nothing more.

    « Very noisy! »

    I recently spent one night at this hotel. I chose to pay a little more that I would have had to pay in Blythe because it is a Best Western. However, I had a miserable night due to the noise from I-10 and the nearby Flying J Truck Stop. I was placed in a room that was near a broken security door and close to the exit ramp from the highway. The spa was being repaired. I arrived around 4 pm when there were few people at the hotel, but they still would not move me to the other side of the motel. The manager has since explained the hotel is being remodeled. I would suggest that you request a room facing away from the highway and the Flying J. The Flying J is the only business close by and it has only fast food options. The hotel breakfast is quite good. All and all, it was not worth the extra cost and I am disappointed that the staff was not more accommodating.

    This hotel is clearly in the middle of nowhere, but what a nice little bubble out of reality. Scrupulously clean, worry- and stress-free and a terrific bed. If you want to eat out, leave before sunset; there is not street lighting away from the hotel, and there is a rotary (roundabout) that may get you lost and confused. You'll still have a Wendy's, a truck-stop, and pizza delivery to choose from, though.

    « Love this place! »

    This is the best for the money. Close to cheap gas. They host you like you are a king while you stay with them. They are kind and friendly. They give you the benefit of the doubt. They are constantly improving and remodeling to make it nice and fresh. The doors should be more secure on the outside entrance but it's probably because there were painters and re modelers. The work out room is all brand new with very expensive work out equipment. It shows they think of every little detail. If I could change something about this place it would be to run their free breakfast just an hour later. This place is clean, responsible, friendly, right priced and just wonderful. I also wished the pool was heated during the winter months it was ice cold and the Jacuzzi was drained. If you stay near the exit doors you will hear freeway traffic. Stay towards the inner hall way on the back side and your room will be quieter.

    « Hotel was quiet but needs a little updating. »

    My wife and I decided to stay here for one night on our way home to Arizona from our California trip. I decided to stay here because of the place being quiet and away from the hustle of Blythe area. We got here around midnight. Check in staff was very helpful and friendly. I rated it average because the view was the parking lot. Also, heater was very loud and annoying so I turned it off and we just bundled up. The bathroom needs to be cleaned more and upon entering the room, it has a little musty smell but after turning on the AC, it was fine. I would recommend this place only as an overnight stay if you are tired of driving.

    « Our Desert Oasis in Ehrenberg, AZ »

    We intended to stay a night or two, but ended up staying for a week. We were just over the border of CA and AZ, so we traveled from state to state on several occasions. Our hotel, Best Western Desert Oasis, was our little oasis during trying times. There was, thankfully, a Flying J and a Wendy's next door for snacks and burgers. We enjoyed the Red Cactus, Steaks and Cakes, and Rebel BBQ in Blythe, CA and "Sweet" Darline's Bakery and Restaurant in Quartzsite, AZ. We were right off the interstate, but the road and truck noise were minimal in our room and we had no trouble sleeping. Yes, our little desert oasis in Ehrenberg, AZ---a stopping place along the way back home to Colorado.

    true, we stayed in a 'pet' room, BUT, it was beyond acceptable. did we complain? no, not til now, we figured we could stand the smell for two nights...and the second night was a gouge nite, because of some gem show in the area. like to sleep cool. room was cool, (we arrived late). showered, went to bed. next morning wanted chill off room, turned heat up, took dogs out for a walk, came back in, and the whole room was nice warm and overwhelming smell of pee....turned heat back to air conditioning, so when we left with our dogs, our things did not reek of pee smell! i was wondering why the dogs were sniffing all over the place when we got there, evidentially some dogs must've marked, they were not used to that inside. i realize people do not 'care' to take care of someone elses things, but they should be responsible enough to keep their animals with them if they are not housebroken, or leave them without taking them out sometime. the room was by the side door, everytime that someone entered or exited the building it would squeak and that was late hours of the night. i almost went and bought some w-d 40 and fixed myself. why would guests be entering in thru that door after 10 or 11pm at night? shouldn't they enter thru the main entrance? this was our first and last best western experience, sorry to say. the bed was comfortable, however.

    We use this hotel to bird watch along the Colorado River National Wildlife Refuges. Very convenient with a filling breakfast which starts at VERY early hours! The first time we stayed here many years ago, we worried that the truck stop and I-10 noise would be overwhelming but that is not the case. The rooms are adequately insulated. The only "negative" are the slamming doors along the corridor. The doors are tight fitting and close automatically. They slam if you don't stand right there and slowly let the door close.

    « Decent highway stop »

    We stayed at the hotel for one night as a convenient highway stopover from Phoenix to Palm Springs. At about $90/night, we thought it was a fair value. The rooms are moderately comfortable, though basic. Breakfast is free, but again, very basic. Overall, think of this as a 2-star experience, but given the hotel's convenient location adjacent the interstate gas plaza, it did the job. The hotel was understaffed at night when we arrived, and the rollaway beds they provide are embarrassing ? the worst we've ever seen.

Dining options are limited to the truck stop Wendy's unless you want to drive back in to Blythe (about 5 miles).

As we were leaving, we accidentally left a suitcase behind that contained several of our souvenirs in the breakfast room. I made a frantic phone call the second we realized it was missing. Every staff member that I spoke to was kind, understanding and helpful. The hotel manager was especially helpful and even drove my bag to the postoffice himself.

    Needed a place to stay overnight driving from So Cal to Sedona. Perfect location at the CA-AZ border. Super close to the freeway offramp and gas station. Check in was efficient but not warm. Assigned second floor room - no elevator. Or at least we couldn't find one. Room was basic. Breakfast was pretty good. Rest of staff was welcoming and smiling. EZ check out.

    « Great stop-over point »

    It's just over the border in AZ, so you can say that you got out of California before nightfall. I stay here 2-3 times a year and they are very consistent - friendly staff, clean and quiet rooms. Never have trouble sleeping!

    « Awesome Stay »

    Highly recommend staying at this location as everything was exceptional from the staff to the comfort/cleanliness of the rooms/ and the breakfast. Will stay again and recommend this BW Location to use. Also like the on and off convenience from the freeway.

    « Good value »

    Excellent hotel on the CA/AZ border. Clean, comfortable, and better than average breakfast. Not much within walking distance for restaurants, but several a few miles west. I don't stay in Best Westerns often, but can recommend this one.

    « Third Times a Charm »

    While traveling from Washington to Arizona we plan three stops before arriving at our destination. This hotel far exceeded our expectation for the price. The rooms were of great quality and the beds comfy.

    « Great place in the desert »

    Definitely will stay again when traveling in this direction. Helpful staff, remodeled rooms, pool and spa. We have stayed here before. Better value than the hotels on the California side. Check out the River Run sports bar....casual dining at good prices with friendly staff also.

    This hotel is not great but good enough. The pool was enjoyable--had it to myself. Breakfast was what you come to expect at a BW. My only complaint is the exterior locks on the corridors that do no work! Would have liked that extra layer of security.

    « BW Desert Oasis / Ehrengerg Arizona »

    This hotel is situated nicely for easy freeway access and close to the Colorado River. The Lobby is clean and contemporary in style The front desk attendant was courteous and knowledgeable I asked for a quite room and was given just that. The fitness Center was great - this hotel actually has 2 fitness centers The breakfast was more than adequate The guest room was newly renovated - it was a great stay..

    « Did not honor reservation »

    I'm a smoker and as such I always search and book for hotels with smoking rooms. Any smoker will understand me. Well, these are the details of my reservation: Room Details: 1 King Bed, Smoking Room, 42 Inch Lcd Television, Microwave And Refrigerator, High Speed Internet Access, Full Breakfast. Upon checking in I was told there were no smoking rooms. And that was it. Manager failed to honor a reservation. Unacceptable.

    We always stay at this Best Western for opening day of Dove hunting season. The Staff goes out of their way for us hunters. The rooms are great and staff friendly. Good A/C which is very important in the 100 plus temperatures and the ice machines are conveniently located.

    We had a ground floor King Room, bed was very comfortable, room was a bit small but ample space for our one night stay. Pool is currently being repaired. As. We are doing a road trip and travelling with a car fridge we were able to use the ice machine for our next days travelling.
