Welcome to the Best Western Plus Safford. We are located in the heart of Safford, AZ and just minutes from Thatcher, AZ. Main Street is also just a couple blocks away, so our location is perfect and central to anywhere you want to go in town. Arriving at the hotel will also be very convenient, as we are right off of Highway 70 and Highway 191. We have many outstanding restaurants within walking distance or a few minutes’ drive. The great ones will be listed on our directories, or you can ask our front desk team who are ambassadors of the great town of Safford. They will be happy to help you with any questions about the area. Safford is located right underneath beautiful Mt. Graham, which is one of our breathtaking attractions. It can be viewed in all its glory from almost everywhere in town. It also features many lovely hiking trails, creeks, waterfalls and Riggs Lake, where you can do some great fishing. Mt. Graham also offers one of the biggest observatories in the world, which is open to the public. Our entire hotel is newly renovated. Everything from the front desk, lobby, breakfast area, hallways, meeting room, and our very comfortable and accommodating rooms and suites. We also have a newly renovated gym with brand new equipment alongside our heated pool and hot tub, which join our gazebo, featuring very nice landscaping, new furniture and a grill. We also offer a basketball court on site. We also are located just a few minutes drive from Roper State Park with beautiful views, great fishing spots and swimming areas.

The movie theater right across the street also has a Starbucks. If you are in the mood for bowling, the alley is just around the corner and offers food at the bar. Secluded off Highway 70. Ample parking. Free hot breakfast.

"We always stay at BW Plus"
Whenever we travel to the Gila Valley our number one choice is always BW plus. Comfy queen suites that fit our whole family including the dogs. They serve delicious hot and cold breakfast items. Plus they provide free EV charging! We are never disappointed when staying at Best Western Plus in Safford!
"Couldn't believe my eyes!"
Enjoying the morning breakfast when we see the Cafe worker and Custodial Supervisor sit down and drink a beer at the bar in the dining area. Another employee served them directly from the beer well and looked like a common practice. Neither employee was disturbed that guest were in their presence.

"Perfect Just As It Is"
This beautifully kept property deserves more than 5-stars & is what the Best Western Brand is all about. Although renovated 2-years ago, it appears as if it were redone last month. Rooms are pristine, beds are comfortable, lobby & common areas are clean, immaculate, welcoming & inviting. Computer services are great, staff are friendly & they have an amazing (almost new) 3-month old lounge with an experienced bartender, Brendan, who will do all he can to make your stop in a pleasant one. NOTE: They even serve Moscato! Breakfast was included & nicely stocked. We can't say enough about this beautiful property & will compliment their manager, Martin, to the Best Western Corporate Offices about how well this property is run. We gave 5-star review on Google as well.
"A solid hotel"
Decent price, good room, it's one of the better hotels for the price. The pool had some bugs but I've heard that's common in AZ. Even got delivery through door dash straight to my room. I will definitely stay again.
"Best Western-Plus: Best value in Safford"
This originally was a Comfort Inn, then it got some upgrades and became an independently owned hotel called Copper Canyon. Then, in about late 2019/early 2020, it got a complete remodel and was re-branded as Best Western-Plus, which probably was the best thing to happen for the Safford area. Have stayed at most of the hotels in this area since 2018. Spring Hill Suites previously was my favorite, but they have been slacking on their breakfast for some time - it's now barely above cheap, 2-star continental, and sometimes is not even ready at the time advertised, so Denny's across the parking lot is a better option. At $155 (incl. taxes)/night, SHS no longer is as good a value as a $133 (incl. taxes)/night BW+ stay, which comes with much better breakfast variety and a start time of 4:00 a.m. - perfect for mine employees, contractors and others whose days start early. This BW+ is comparable to SHS in room quality, decor, comfort, ease of access and amenities, but sprints ahead with its nightly rate, breakfast offerings, afternoon bar and overall value. A good role model for other local hotels to follow!
"This is a great hotel if you are staying in Saford"
So glad we are staying here tonight instead of the neighboring property the staff is very kind and the place is immaculate. They care about the breakfast they serve and try to give the best quality they can. That says a lot for the young ladies working there this morning. I didn't cath the names but this is being written on April 27 in the morning. Just a good clean hotel with friendly staff.
I have not stayed at a Best Western for as long as I can remember. It was always a value hotel and lower on the scale of hotels that I chose to stay. I travel a ton for work and pleasure. Best Western would not be one on the list, until it was only one of a couple on the list. I stayed in Snowflake and was so pleased that I stayed in Safford too! I was pleasantly surprised and thought it was pretty cool they had a happy hour lounge when I checked in! This is a genius use of the breakfast space. The budget hotel I remember, now closely resembles the higher end that I elect to enjoy while I am away from home. It will be one to consider the next time it pops up on the list! I even signed up to get membership benefits. This was the first of many I may chose in the future! Way to step it up Best Western! I love the fresh feel and the colors, well done!
"Excellent hotel with great price"
This hotel was excellent. We were traveling to watch college baseball games. Not only was their rate better than others in the area, the experience was exceptional. Very clean rooms. Courteous, friendly, and accommodating staff, including house keeping staff. Everything was as expected. Pleasantly no surprises - great hotel! Will certainly look for Best Western Plus hotels for future travel.
"Rewards members beware..."
This hotel is very nice and the staff is very helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. However, I'd recommend travelers bring their own pillows as the ones in the room are so fluffy you will get a stiff neck sleeping on them. Also, if you book online with rewards points your credit card on file will automatically get charged $29.99. You can get this reversed by mentioning it at check out, but I feel this shouldn't be necessary.
"Over priced for the experience received"
This hotel was over priced for the experience I received. I should of just chosen a cheaper best western or another hotel chain based off of the experience of my last visit. Seems like they want full price for rooms but give you less and less service and quality in order to meet their bottom line.
"Perfect stop while in the area"
A great hotel. Very clean and super friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are spacious and bed was super comfortable. Best place to stop while in the area. Close to Mt Graham and Roper State Park for fishing.
"Very nice facility but a working clientele"
The facility is new, well kept and everything works. The pillows are not wimpy like at other properties. Mattresses excellent, Internet adequate, breakfast adequate which in these COVID days of grab and go sack Continental breakfast is nice. The only caveat is, if you are not a mine vendor or worker who is getting up at 4:00 or 5:00, you might want a room at the end of the hall or on the top floor because some of the guests are heavy of foot and not very cognizant of noise that early.
"Nice Motel, except floors"
It has wood floor rooms - usually wonderful but I had my shoes off and my feet were black with dirt from the floor. One would expect the housekeeper would push a wet swiffer around the floor everyday. Otherwise, comfy beds, nice rooms & pet friendly. Good amenities. Just get those floors mopped!
The hotel was a really nice place from the front as we drove up to the door to check out time. All staff were professional and kind. The room was far beyond my expectations for cleanliness. And the free breakfest is a plus. Great time thank you.
My stay was wonderful, staff was friendly, room was clean, coffee was fresh The parking was great and convenient, I will use this hotel again for future trips. I was very pleased with my stay and hope to stay again!
"Safford Best Western Plus"
Appreciated the let friendliness and laundry facility. The breakfast station was so hot we felt terrible for the gal working there. Head maintenance man was the most callous, gruff individual I've encountered in awhile. I asked him to help us turn on hot tub because the know was missing. He had no intention of helping us until I suggested using a wrench. When I thanked him, he completely ignored me. It was fixed the next day, but this guy needs a serious refresh in hospitality and customer service.
"Very Nice Property and Stay"
Great place. I was leading a group of 14 motorcycles and the front desk personal were very friendly and professional. She made the whole process very easy and enjoyable. She put us all close together as I had requested.
The service was great all around! Definitely recommended for anyone traveling through, best hotel in town and by far the most comfortable hotel we've stayed in, and we will more then likely be returning
"Very nice and modern hotel. Friendly staff"
Very clean and modern hotel. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful if I had any questions. Very reasonable rates and ended up staying an extra night very accommodating to let me have the same room.
"Great room for business"
This is either a new or recently renovated property. We stayed midweek in a “suite.” More of large room than a suite, but a big room. New, stylish contemporary decor with a great workstation. Lots of easy to reach outlets and USB ports throughout the room. Two 40” TVs. Comfy bed with lots of pillows. Very clean. But, all was not as nice. The shower, while spotlessly clean, had terrible water pressure. There wasn't any coffee left 15 minutes after the start of breakfast, and nobody around. The hot breakfast was a joke. Frozen “omelets,” and I kid you not, the “bacon” was just a mass of tiny bacon bits. You would have needed a spoon to eat it. Checkin staff was very pleasant, and recommended some local restaurants, one of which we ate at and enjoyed our meal. So, if you can deal with low water pressure and assume no breakfast, you're golden, as the room itself was great.
"Best Place to stay"
Hotel was clean with nice appearance Room was clean, quiet, lots of space Front desk was professional and personable I will stay at the same hotel on my next trip to the area. I would highly recommend
"Great stop enroute to Phoenix/Scottsdale"
This Safford hotel was super clean, close to restaurants, and grocery stores. Rooms were spacious and beds very comfy. If you need a stopping point enroute to Phoenix, this is the place. Would definitely return.
"Very good hotel"
Coming into town for one night and not familiar with the town we stayed here. Very clean, quiet and comfortable bedding.The do offer a to go breakfast with the COVID at this time. Check in was very easy and the desk clerk very pleasant. Plenty of parking and felt very safe. Easy to find off the highway. I would stay here again if going thru Safford.
"One Night in Safford. AZ"
Was in for a one night stay as I had business at the Morenci Mine. The staff allowed me to check in about 45 minutes early which was nice because I had to get ready to conduct an orientation. Room was very clean and all employees wore masks. Great experience and better value.
The hospitality was fantastic. The rooms were clean and it was a great place to stay. Our son is autistic and one of the house keeper made his stay fantastic. The breakfast was warm and the coffee was great.

"Good Hotel, Not So Quiet"
Outside is quiet. Inside, you can hear every room door slam shut. Every time it closes. That is bad design. This is a new hotel and the rooms are very large. They are tastefully decorated and ours included a fridge and microwave. The amenities were of good quality. It is a nice hotel, just noisy on the inside. Check in was frightfully slow, even though I was the only person checking in. There were three staff in the reception area but the person checking me was the only one who would answer the phone, keeping me wating.

"Huge room, very clean"
On a trans-USA cycle tour, and four of us got great value in a huge room with two queen beds and a sofa bed. Immaculately clean and great breakfast. $100 for the four of us is a deal. Friendly staff and free snacks on arrival
"Worst hotel stay in recent memory"
The toilet was clogged and wouldn't flush. The "I'm new" front desk personnel didn't do anything to remedy the situation. My request for a humble toilet plunger to unclog it myself was met with a blank look followed by several minutes of opening various closets in a futile attempt to locate one. Contributing to this charming ambiance was the apparent family wrestling match above us, and what might be characterized as pain threshold decibel level door slamming, the most frequent and loudest I've ever experienced in any hotel. The thin walls did little to prevent us from hearing the television next door. The sluggish wifi connection was reminiscent of dial-up speeds. Avoid, unless you've a penchant for urinating in dark parking lots because the toilet in your room doesn't flush. You are welcome.

I try and decipher your contact information as it is not provided in this comment area so your experience can be properly and quickly addressed. Again our apologies.
Stayed here for a night as part of our USA road trip. Hotel was clean, well run and well equipped with friendly staff. Beds were comfy and room a good size. Would use this place again if we ever find ourselves in the area.Sausage patties at breakfast were excellent!
"Clean but management needs to read the reviews.."
So overall beds were good, pillows good, room overall clean. The wifi worked well. So here's a couple of suggestions... Our room- #107 has some maintenance items. First of all, the bathroom faucet has a granite shelf above it, but so close you can hardly get much volume of water coming out of it. To reach behind and pull up the sink stopper is quite the feat... Also, the water control for the tub/shower requires muscle even to move it- not to mention the color code of hot and cold is just the opposite of what really happens. A formula for a nice burn here... The breakfast- while it's nice to have a hot breakfast, like several other reviews had mentioned- the hash browns are less than cooked, mostly all white. The eggs were mostly dried out and made from some kind of egg mix, just like most basic hotels. The thing that really bothered me was the fact that at 9:15, when my wife wanted her breakfast, the dude in charge of the breakfast had cleared out all the hot food items, leaving very few choices left to eat, such as toast and juice. If you tell guests, breakfast is served until 9:30, I would expect that at 9:15, you would still have all the choices available you'd have at 6:30.... Maybe they're trying save a few dollars here, by cutting food costs... not sure, but this had also been mentioned in other reviews. I own some retail stores, and when I get a negative comment, I immediately work on correcting it. Not sure why the other reviews go unheeded here.
"One Of The Better Comfort Inns You Will Find!"
As a long-time Choice Hotels Diamond Elite member who has stayed at hundreds of different Choice hotels, I can say that this one is high on the list. It has a lobby that you might expect to see in a more expensive hotel, and the rooms are large, well-furnished, and clean. Our room had a small sofa, coffee table, and an extra chair - items that you don't typically see in a Comfort Inn... very comfortable! The room furnishings are not cheap, and the beds are very comfortable. If I had to make one suggestion for improvement, it would be to replace the shower head with one that has multi-adjustable spray patterns. The breakfast buffet is much better than most... in addition to sausage and scrambled eggs, there were 2 types of potatoes, which makes for a great hot breakfast! This hotel is conveniently located just far enough from the main street that you don't hear the traffic noise, the check-in experience was positive, and our entire stay was great! We stayed here several years ago and had a similar experience, which is why we chose to stay here again.
