    « Paint Pony »

    I've stated at this property several times over 25 years. Current refresh is terrific! Contemporary with all the amenities I needed for a short business trip: wifi, desk space, good lighting. Good, folksy customer service. I would stay again!

    « Very Good For An Overnight »

    One of the nicer Best Western's that we have stayed in. Quiet, and on the main street. this provides value for the dollar spent. We did not have breakfast so can not comment. The room is large, the beds are quite comfortable.

    « Classic style motel. »

    Best Western has done a good job of putting their name on a lot of classic old motels, and this is another good example. Maybe a little pricey, but a comfortable hotel with a location that gives some privacy even though right on the highway. The restaurant next door was okay, but nothing to write home about.

    « Pleasant stay for a fair price »

    I enjoyed my stay at Best Western Paint Pony Lodge at the beginning of March 2018. At first, I was put off because I arrived after 10 p.m. and was directed to an outdoor check-in window. It was approximately 25 degrees outside, so I expressed my frustration at standing outside in the cold to check in--certainly not something I've ever had to do anywhere else, ever. Thankfully, the night attendant was gracious enough to let me in, where it was nice and warm. She explained that there are bars down the road. However, never during my 5 night stay did I see or hear any obnoxious guests or people loitering. I think they need to ditch the outdoor check-in, at least during cold months. The reception/lobby and breakfast lounge are in a separate building. This building is not connected to the guest rooms. It is a lovely, inviting, homey building, with wood accents, eye-catching artwork by local artists, and ample seating for breakfast or visiting. Breakfast was the same every morning, except they rotated sausage and bacon for the choice of meat. You can choose from pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, toast and English muffins, waffles, scrambled eggs, meat, and sausage gravy and biscuits. If they run out of something, they will happily get more out for you, even if you show up ten minutes before breakfast is done. There are a few excellent breakfast spots in Show Low and Pinetop, so I alternated between eating at Best Western and eating out. My first room apparently had thin walls, and I could hear normal conversation on both sides of my room, resulting in a restless night of sleeping. The shower in the morning was refreshing with thick, thirsty towels and a nice big shower head that helped wake me up. The front desk was kind enough to let me switch rooms, and I moved from the front building to the back. This room was much quieter, and although I could still hear conversation, either the walls were thicker and I couldn't hear as much, or the guests stopped talking early, because I didn't have a problem staying asleep. I did, however, find it difficult to fall asleep because the pillows were so uncomfortable. Unless you are a back sleeper, take your own pillow. Their pillows are all super full, and because they're filled with synthetic material, they don't squish down, making side-sleeping difficult, and I'm guessing stomach sleepers might have to ditch the pillow entirely. They need choices in regard to pillows. In addition, the shower head in this room wasn't as big, therefore water flow wasn't as strong, which was a bit of a bummer. I also didn't like the combination shampoo/conditioner they supplied or the soap, and they didn't offer lotion, so I went out and bought all three of my own. If you don't place your dirty towels and washcloths directly on the floor, housekeeping will leave them in the room. I left my washcloth balled up in the corner of the shower and a dirty towel draped over the bottom of the tub, and they were still there later in the day. In addition, they didn't rinse out the tub or sink. These are minor things, but noticeable nonetheless. Also, not having on-sight exercise facilities was inconvenient, and I ended up not getting a pass to go elsewhere. Kids be aware that there is not a pool here either. So, while not an exceptional experience, I enjoyed my stay and would stay again because I felt the price was fair for what I was getting, and its location was perfect for my needs. I can definitely recommend this property without hesitation.

    « Not the best Best Western »

    I have stayed at plenty of BW properties and this one is okay, not great but will do for a night. The restaurant next door is within walking distance and as the front desk promised, the food is phenomenal. The rooms are clean, housekeeping knows what they are doing and are very accommodating!!

    « Clean, convenient, large room »

    We were surprised by the large size of our hotel room. It was clean and had everything we needed. The hotel is conveniently located on the main street, but still quiet, and near several restaurants. Hot breakfast was good. Staff was very helpful. I'd stay here again.

    « Wonderful Holiday »

    My husband, two daughters and I spent our Christmas holiday here. We were greeted by a cheerful desk clerk, Veronica, who made check in a breeze! The breakfast was good and hot (make yourself waffles, biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, pastries, toast, coffee, orange and apple juice, hot cocoa and teas), the room was clean, the staff was friendly, the area was quiet minus a few guests who checked in late, but that has nothing to do with the hotel or staff. Some people just don't think.

    « Pet Friendly Property »

    This property is very accommodating to pets. We experienced no issues with this property during our stay. The breakfast was good, and the staff was helpful. I prefer soft mattresses, but my husband loved the mattress being firmer. The rooms were quiet, everything was clean and fresh, and it was very easy to control the temperature. We have stayed at this location several times in the past and it is our choice for the Show Low area. A bit more expensive than others in the area, but worth it.

    « very nice people »

    This place was very nice for the price. People are very helpful. It is your basic Motel room but very clean . Breakfast is not very attractive. I expected something a little better quality. I did not have the breakfast because it was not presented nicely at all. Overall it was quiet and close to down town area.

    On a short layover i chose this property as a good mid point in our journey. I am very glad i did. We got a great nights sleep. I chose a ground floor King room, very large and quiet in the back building. Very clean rooms!!

    « a nice surprise »

    we normally stay at the hampton inn, but their rate for that weekend had jumped significantly, so we looked around. paint pony was rated the same, had the same amenities, but was a better rate. we thought we would try one night, but were so pleased, we stayed all three nights with them, The staff was wonderful(compared to the snob at hampton inn who said there was NO comparison)and the breakfast was really good. The woman who ran the breakfast buffet took a lot of care in keeping the food warm She really deserves all the accolades.

    « Very good service. Very good room. Very good Value »

    This was a random find. As a Veteran, Best Western and Vets Advantage saved me money and turned out to be a highlight of our trip. I have traveled domestically and internationally. I wish that all the facilities I have visited would use the formula that Best Western Paint Pony Lodge put together.

    « Exceptionally Clean »

    This is honestly the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. I am a nurse, and a day sleeper. The hotel provided well for that as it is quiet during the day. Also the fireplace was beautiful. Thanks for a great experience! I would stay here again.

    « Clean and comfortable. »

    Room was clean and warm....a/c wasn't as cool as I like but it is October so hopefully by the summer it will be fixed. The bed itself was comfortable but the pillows were like rocks.....they are not regular bed pillows, they are square like couch pillows. We finally were able to punch them to flatten a bit. The staff was very friendly. Had no noise problems since we were in the back building. Breakfast was hot and there was a variety of foods to eat. I wish there was a pool or hot tub to relax in, that might keep people away but not a big issue.

    « Subpar »

    Hard as rock beds, dated furniture, and cheap irons....ruined a pair a dress pants. Okay place to stay if you are a construction worker. Parking is tight as well and room doors open right to the parking lot so you can hear every truck starting in the morning. Won't be back

    « Great hotel! »

    We looked up hotels/motels while on the road to Show Low, and decided to try the Paint Pony Lodge because of the name and the photos online. First time we've ever stayed at a Best Western. It was well worth it. Hotel class at a motel price. Very nice, clean, friendly hotel. Beautiful lobby, helpful staff and clean rooms with amenities. Very well laid out and nice-looking, even had a gas fireplace in our room!

    « Poor experience w/ help »

    We had a bad experience upon checking in & will not be going back. We were told the rooms were being cleaned & could not check in until 3:00. Upon returning at 3:05, we waited behind 3 others to check in. The room we requested was not available so they offered to "upgrade" us. They did & it was a very nice room, but they charged us an extra $32 for their upgrade. Michelle knew we were annoyed at the inconvenience & apologized, but it wasn't very sincere -- almost sarcastic. She probably knew I would tell someone about this lousy experience.

    « Home Away From Home »

    I have been frequenting this location for the better part of a decade now when I visit my son and we are always very pleased with the service we receive. The staff is very helpful and friendly and are always willing to go that extra mile to ensure a good stay. The Best Western Paint Pony Lodge has truly become my home away from home whenever I visit. Thank you and keep up the good work!

    « Weekend get away »

    The ac unit did not cool good and they received a complaint a couple weeks prior to our stay and failed to correct the issue and toilet broke and also plugged up. Staff was great. The tv is small for the room size. Check in and check out was very fast and pleasant.

    Stayed here many times, always great. Quick check-in, great staff. Excellent chocolate chip cookies in lobby (free). Lots of parking, usually directly in front of your room. I tend to travel with a small trailer that I use for an office and special parking places for cars with trailers are available.

    This is a very nice hotel, VERY well maintained and staffed with exceptionally friendly staff. The Mexican restaurant next door is a Mexican food lovers paradise ! As a Best Western Rewards Card member I qualified for a FREE night AND they even upgraded me to a very spacious, super nice suite. THANKS BEST WESTERN !

    « Great price, Clean Appearance »

    I stayed for two nights and it was perfect. It is pet friendly. I had my two little kids and eng bulldog with me. Price is great. Room was clean and simply updated. My only negative remark would be the comfort level of the beds, maybe more specifically the pillows. Breakfast was great. I would stay there again.

    « good experience »

    The internet was down two of the three days of stay. that was disappointing. I really would of enjoyed a hot tub, also. But overall the hotel was clean and a good location. We walked to supper two nights. I felt safe staying there.

    « Nice but a little overpriced »

    For being the age of this motel and nearing the end of the summer season, I thought it to b e little overpriced for seniors or AAA members. Considering the number of rooms, the breakfast area was quite small. Since their old original office appears to be unused, mayb it would make a better breakfast area? Have been a BW Rewards member for many years.

    « The Most Unwelcomed Hotel Stay Evere! #HOG »

    A group of 5 on Harley's on a return trip from Sturgis chose the Best Western Paint Pony in Show Low Arizona on August 10th 2017. That decision was made on January 18th 2017. And, the Best Western was chosen "specifically" due to the relationship this chain has with Harley Davidson and as two in the group were members of the Best Western Ride Rewards Program. An early leave out of Farmington NM and running to beat storms put the group in Show Low ahead of schedule and check-in time arriving around 1:30 p.m. Everyone recognizes there is a stated check-in time at any hotel but circumstances were as they were. We was early! And it started pouring rain within minutes of our arrival. Having ridden many times together we "always" booked far in advance and "always" requested ground floor rooms together if possible. "Always!" We realize there are no guarantees. Upon arrival we checked in at the counter to see what the possibility was of getting in early. We sensed that a counter employee might have accommodated us but at least one in the group saw a woman in the background with a somewhat unpleasant look on her face holding up 3 fingers indicating check in time was at 3:00 p.m. In fairness to the Paint Pony upstairs rooms with king size beds were offered but we asked about downstairs rooms (kinda like what we did on January 18th). We were told the downstairs rooms were not ready yet and that when they were 3 of us would be on one side of the hotel and two on the other. Well, OK. One in the group opted for an upstairs rooms and checked in. The others waited. Outside (our choice) under the canopy in the rain. We sat and sat and sat and saw absolutely no maid activity in the ground floor rooms. At near 3:00 p.m. an employee walked over to the ground floor rooms that we had been looking at for an hour and a half, checked them and walked back. So we waited a bit more and at "precisely" 3:00 p.m. were granted access to the rooms that we had been staring at for 90 minutes. But wait, there's more. While we sat there (in the rain) two separate cars pulled in and were checked in. Well before 3:00 p.m. "and" in ground floor rooms adjacent to the rooms we had been staring at. We were told the rooms were not ready. So what's the real story? Were the rooms really not ready or did the lady with 3 fingers just not like people on motorcycles! There was only one employee here that ever smiled at us and we sensed that it was the tone being set by the lady with 3 fingers who we later learned was a corporate manager. WOW! We didn't even see a friendly face the next morning. Never a smile, how you going, good morning or whatever. Nothing! All in all we just felt unwelcome. We felt this hotel was far below par and none of us would ever return and would spread the word to others that the Paint Pony is not a place you want to stay. There are other choices in Show Low.

    « Superior Service! Great Value! »

    From the initial reservation (we called direct) to final check-out (stayed 3 nights), we had nothing but the best service. All questions were answered timely, with a smile. We wish we could remember the specific employees names but we can say this: EVERY employee we dealt with was kind, helpful, and always served with a smile....rom the front desk help, to the housekeeping staff, to the sweet lady that took care of us at breakfast. Kudos to the management for the upbeat, friendly service provided during our stay. By the way, rooms were super clean too....very comfortable bed.

    This motel was so clean I didn't feel like I had to wear my shoes in the room. Nothing was out of place and nothing was missing. Staff from check-in to maintenance to house keeping were so friendly and welcoming. Breakfast had many options and the cookies in the afternoon were a great touch.

    « If you don't mind a sleepless night, stay at this hotel »

    The staff was kind, the lobby belies what is in the guest rooms. The lobby is truly stunning, but the rest of the motel is dated. We are older and it just was a very uncomfortable 2 nights. They have the old style a/c heating units that make a lot of noise and go off and come on all night.

    « Nice clean place to stay »

    Nice clean place to stay. The staff were exceptionally nice, the rooms clean, and they had HBO. The beds were a little bit too firm for my taste but my family and I still slept comfortably. This is not a fancy hotel because there is no pool and it consists some buildings mostly surrounded by blacktop. Breakfast was about average for an included breakfast. My only complaint about the room is that there was no way to open a window and Show Low has a nice climate so opening a window is often more preferable than running the climate control. I at least wish the climate control would pull in fresh air when its on vent mode but all it seemed to do was recirculate air in the room.

    « A great find! »

    This little motel looked good in online reviews, and a friend recommended it, so we made it our sleep over in Show Low. From the point of check-in, it was such a gem! The wonderful chocolate chip cookies - warm and melting with chocolate - were the first surprise. Yum! The desk clerk, and every other hotel employee we encountered throughout our stay, was friendly and offered a genuine smile and greeting. The room was the best surprise; I just don't have great expectations of rooms at this price point, and they have now become the bar that every other hotel/motel needs to meet. The room was larger than expected, with a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker, iron and ironing board (who does this anymore!?) and a big, comfortable bed with equally comfy pillows. But it was the level of cleanliness that was the best part. That room was spotless. The bed linens were clean and bright, the carpet was immaculate, the bathroom almost sterile it was so clean, and the room had none of the used, old, tired, prior guest scent to it. Wonderful! (And despite the facility being fully booked, it was quiet!) We did not eat the free breakfast, but looked at what was offered, and it seemed like there were far more choices than other "free breakfasts" at similar hotels.

    « A stop in Show Low »

    We were looking for a location near Concho and Show Low was the spot which was to be a stop over only, but this BW was clean, convenient, and quiet for our stay so we booked another night upon check in. The young man that was there during our stay was very friendly and answered all our questions about the area. The room was very clean and quiet considering there were a lot of truckers who stayed at this hotel as well. If another trip requires a stay in Show Low I would book this BW!

    This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are exterior entrance doors which isnt my favorite but the room was quite large, nicely decorated and it was very quiet. the breakfast was very nice, and the room was only about $85, which is very reasonable. There is a good Mexican/American restaurant right next door that you can walk to.

    I have stayed here twice in the last 2 years. On both occasions the staff was professional and friendly, the rooms were neat and clean, as well as the exterior of the buildings. For being an older hotel, it is well maintained. It is located next to the best Mexican Food Restaurant and a grocery store across the street. The surrounding area is beautiful! I will always stay here when passing through town!

    « One night stop over »

    Booked this hotel direct for a one night stop on a trip to Phoenix. It is a nice hotel, clean comfortable room. Oddly we were first sent to a handicap accessible room with a bath fitted out for handicap access. We did not need this and when we checked back with the front desk the young man on duty tried to tell us it was probably because we booked through a third party or that it had been the only room available, neither of which was the case. After we went round and round on this he finally said yes they had another double room available and we were given the next room over. It all was a bit odd, but worked out fine. Breakfast was not very good. Had coffee and hit the road.

    « Nice rooms, great staff, decent breakfast, flaky wifi »

    The hotel staff was always friendly and helpful, from check in to check out to breakfast to help with finding a restaurant to housekeepin. Our room was large, clean and well laid out. The bed was comfortable. The refrigerator was nice size, and actually had a freezer, which was great for keeping our ice frozen. Breakfast was just ok. The eggs were hot and not too dry. The sausage and bacon were well cooked and warm. There were bananas, oranges and apples (bad apples) so we had plenty to eat. There were also biscuits and gravy and waffles and dry cereal and bakery items, but we didn't try them. The biggest complaint was the wifi; it would cut in and out. Not usually a problem, but my husband needed 30 minutes of uninterrupted wifi, and that was difficult to find. He did finally discover that if he just turned wifi off, then turned it back on, he could accomplish his tasks.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    My husband and I stayed two nights at this BW. The staff was very friendly, respectful and helpful. They recommended area activities and attractions with ease.

    « Not up to par »

    It looked like this hotel was purchased from another's mistake. Compared to Rancho Mirage, they made no effort to make us feel welcome. When I asked housekeeping to come back, they never did. The Breakfast area was too small to make a presentation. It was just all lumped in a small are with hardly enough tables or chairs to accommodate the guests. No effort was made to see if we enjoyed the fireplace that was in an upgraded room, which we could not figure how to operate. No effort was made to tell us that Showlow was having a festival or what was offered.

    This BW is moderately appointed and priced. The room we received was a 2nd floor beautiful King Bed room newly upgraded with AC/heat pump, flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave, and tub/shower combination. The lobby is fresh with a full wall fireplace and seating area. The free breakfast was as described with plenty of offerings to please most folks. A spa is available but is off site. Fresh cookies served daily. May not be dog friendly some confusion between a website and printed material. No noise issues.

    « Wonderful! »

    It's been a while since I submitted a review for a hotel but the Paint Pony Lodge was so exceptional that it compelled me to do so. This is a Best Western and one expects a certain standard but this hotel goes beyond that. I don't think it would have been possible for the room to have been any cleaner -- it was absolutely spotless and immaculate. It went beyond clean too in that the room was so comfortable, free HBO, free breakfast (yummy!), super friendly staff and so much more. This hotel is well looked after and well cared for and maintained and it shows. I'm sure our next trip to the White Mtns will lead us back to this hotel.

    This was may first "stay" at the hotel as I was in town for work we are doing in the area.

    The hotel is a little dated but still nice overall. No sleep timer on the tv remote is always frustrating, but you can do it manually on the tv itself via buttons on the side. The breakfast was really good for a continental. They care about the quality of food they put out and it shows. I'll be back, but couldn't give them 5 stars due to the age.

    We paid a little extra and stayed in a room with a fireplace. It was a spacious room and very clean. The fireplace was a nice extra. It was a cold night and the bathroom wasn't very warm. I didn't see an extra heater in the bathroom. The breakfast was nice, too. I'm average height, but the counter in the breakfast room was so tall that I could not see the food on the back of the counter. That was strange. We were in a back building that was very quiet. Overall it was a good stay.

    I have stayed at this hotel for 20 + years . And it has always been consistent. Great staff. Great value. Love the hot breakfast. They constantly up grading the rooms and amenities.

    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.

    « 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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    « 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!

    « 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.

    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 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.

    « 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.

    I have stayed here many of times while camping up by the lakes to clean up. Nice place to stay, the staff was great. I liked all the things they had for breakfast and the coffee in the rooms was ok. They want this to be in 2oo characters but I believe I have summed every thing up. Just stay there once and you'll go back

    « GREAT STAFF & LOCATION »

    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.

    After a long day of White water rafting Inn the upper salt river Showlow is a great place to say I would definitely recommend this hotel! The bed are wonderful and the tub is huge !

    « Clean, friendly, great breakfast »

    This hotel was one of the cleanest I've stayed in, and was pleasantly surprised because of the lower cost. The staff was very personable, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was kept stocked, had great options, and was very fresh and tasty! I would definitely consider staying at best western on every trip so long as it is up to par with this one!

    Large Room. Very Clean. Heater/AC worked good. Bed comfortable. Good breakfast. Very attractive lobby. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms open to the outside but our room was in the back so road noise was not an issue.

    « Good value for price »

    Most amenities were updated. Room had a faint "old" smell, but not unbearable at all. Everything was in working order and beds were nice and comfy. Breakfast was good, except for the bacon which was too think and too well done. Overall, a good value for the price.

    « 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.

    I have stayed at this hotel once a week for the past 4weeks and will be staying at this hotel once a week for business. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are great. It has been a pleasure staying here thus far. The location is optimal for the business I do.

    « Friendly Staff, Good Breakfast, Comfortable Room »

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    « 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.

    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!
