    Staying here with my boyfriend.  Beautiful grounds, very well maintained.  I can't figure out what it is, but it smells amazing outside... Maybe sandlewood but I can't figure out what it is coming from.  The room is clean and comfortable.  They stock the bathroom with shampoo and conditioner (I'm used to just shampoo)!  Our room  has a nice mini fridge in it which has been convenient.  I asked housekeeping to leave me an extra bottle of conditioner via note and they left me three extra.  The grounds are immaculate. The TV does seem a bit small compared to other places I've stayed at, but I wouldn't call it small either. The room came with some nice tourist magazines, pointing us towards places in Phoenix to go.  I suppose the room could be a bit more modern, but it is quite nice regardless.  The bed is a bit softer than I'm used to, but i'm not very sensitive to that.  I'd stay again, but at the same time it's a bit different from a 4/5 star rated hotel.

    LOVE this place! Great food, great pro shop, pretty good spa, nice large rooms, and fun pool! The greens fees are reasonable and the course is always nicely manicured! Very friendly people all around too!

    Stayed here once in 2006 and had roaches in the room.  Now in October of 2010 my husbands company had an incentive trip.  6 people so far have been hit with credit card fraud!  The highest victim got hit for a 1200.00 purchase on the same card used to check in.  Stay away or monitor your credit after staying here!!!!!!!

    I want to preface this review with the disclaimer that I have not actually stayed here. However, I have used the facilities, seen the rooms, and gotten feedback from my parents, husband's mother, my uncle, and my grandmother, who all stayed here. That being said, I think that I can still provide useful feedback to potential guests. My two cents:

    This is a well-maintained resort with an absolutely gorgeous huge pool that has stunning views of the golf course and of South Mountain. As Jennifer P already mentioned, it is not super-close to anything particularly nice or interesting (except for The Farm at South Mountain, which is literally next door and features a great breakfast eatery, a decent sandwich place, and a oft-written-about dinner restaurant serving cuisine that features locally grown and sustainable ingredients), but is definitely centrally located and convenient (by freeway) to downtown/central Phoenix and Tempe and close to South Mountain (for hikers). Also, if you live in South Phoenix (like I do) and have relatives in town, this is by far the nicest place in the area that you can suggest and has a calmer, more adult-oriented feel than the Arizona Grand Resort (which is on the border of South Phoenix and Tempe).

    As far as the rooms and noise level, none of my relatives mentioned any problems. The rooms (all suites) were well-maintained, clean, and all had kitchenettes. One major drawback is that because of the all-suite setup, which features about 10 different buildings (labeled with letters), you can end up in a room that is really far away from the lobby and pool. When we went over to swim with my grandma, we ended up driving from her room to the pool area! As I already mentioned, the pool is gorgeous and we spent an enjoyable few hours by it. We were a little dismayed, however, that the bar had a sign listing its daytime hours but wasn't open at 4 pm when it said it would be.

    None of my husband's or my relatives paid more than $120 to stay at the resort (most likely due to the fact that fewer people decide that Phoenix is the ideal August travel destination!), and given that they all wanted a place to stay that was comfortable, clean, and attractive, as well as close to our South Phoenix home, it worked out quite well for them. However, I can see how someone traveling to the area who doesn't have friends or relatives in South Phoenix (or have a strong interest in simply golfing and swimming at the resort) would be disappointed to pay $300 to stay here.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Legacy. I was there for 7 nights for a work trip  and it was almost perfect. The check in process was simple and fast and the front desk girl was really sweet. My room was the most basic one, but it was huge and had a sitting area, dining table, big balcony, kichenette, and washer and dryer (besides the king bed, tv, dressers, bathroom, etc). Being there for 7 days, all of these came in very handy!

    The property is huge, with a nice pool, kids playground, and golf course. The restaurant is okay (ate dinner there one night) but nothing spectacular. The cleaning ladies did a great job every day and it was so nice to come home to a clean room, with new packets of coffee and dish detergent every day.

    I met the assistant GM too while we were there and he was great! Super accommodating and just a really nice guy.

    The location is out of the way with not a whole lot nearby. However, the airport was 10 minutes away and all the great restaurant in Phoenix were only about 15 minutes away. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay again!

    PS - found for about $120 a night on travelocity, which I thought was a fantastic deal for this kind of resort.

    A great place to stay and play golf. The golf course is ideal place for golfer. Had a problem with being double billed in the restaurant and called a few days later, and the problem was solved the same day. I would recommend this resort to anyone planning to stay in the Phoenix area.

    I stayed here twice on recent trips to Phoenix and had great experiences both times.  We are Shell Vacation Owners and this is our "home" resort but we'd never stayed before and now I'm sorry we never did a stay-cation when we lived in Phoenix because it was great.  I booked a 1-bdrm unit both times and it was huge.  The bedroom was very large and the bed was super comfy, there was a very large Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom as well as a stand up shower and not one but two vanities.....one next to the jacuzzi tub and one in the other part of the bathroom where the shower and toilet were....this would have made it really nice for a  family or couple.   There as a nice sized kitchen with everything I needed for my stay....washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove, microwave, pots, pans, wine glasses, silverware, dishes, etc., a dining room with a table that seated 6 (which I ended up needing when family visited) and a living room with a sofa bed....oh and flat screen tvs with DVD players in both the living room and the bdrm.  Also, you either have a nice balcony or patio with chaise lounges which was really nice in the evenings.   The pool is really big with plenty of chaise lounges as well as tables and chairs with umbrellas.  It wasn't crowded either stay (tho I know this is low season in PHX).  I can't say enough about the staff....they were so polite and friendly and even remembered me when I came back the second time.  Though I didn't partake because with family living in PHX, I was gone a lot, there seemed to be plenty of activities for guests and the spa was having some great specials....next time, maybe!

    I didn't step foot on the golf course, I'm sorry to say, but it was 113 degrees when we were there. It was hard to breathe outside.

    We stayed in Building 9, and it was quite a ways from the pool or the lobby. I find that a positive, because it means less traffic around my room. We stayed on the second floor, and we heard no noise from neighbors at all. However, we definitely heard the A/C all night long. It sounded as if a tub were draining.

    Upon check-in, there were a number of problems with the unit. First was that the washer leaked profusely. Engineering immediately came to take care of that problem. Then I noticed that the phone didn't work. I called the front desk and could hear them, but they couldn't hear me.

    The connecting rooms were a great space for our family (3 kids, two adults), but I wish there was a better way to connect our doors. As others have noted, it is definitely time to update the decor. Clean rooms are great, but outdated SW decor doesn't project the right image for the timeshare company that owns the property, nor does it encourage owners to buy any more time!

    Our family found this resort a fine spot for our excursions to the zoo and to the children's museum. We took a very long day up to Grand Canyon, but anyplace in Phoenix would have been out of the way.

    We had a good time, despite the crazy heat, and the room was adequate. The staff was very accommodating, although they called daily to lure us into sales talks, which we easily avoided.

    I'd recommend this resort, but not in the heat of June. October is probably better.

    this place was great. it was our yearly trip to visit the kids at school. the resort was about 15 mins away from asu. but it felt like we were on a far away vacation. we got the one bedroom condo. it was furnished with everything such has plates, pots, drinking glasses, etc.  the condo was nice and relaxing where we spent more time there. the staff was great and very nice.  the landscaping was beautiful for Phoenix.

    Just stayed here for the weekend since my friend got married right down the road. Everything was great for the most part. The restaurant was pretty good & not absurdly priced. We ate there both mornings. Golf course was nice as well.

    I would like to give the place 3.5 stars but I'm giving them 4 since that's not an option. They do need to update the rooms. They were very clean but a little outdated.

    This review is just for the golf course. Looks like some people have already reviewed the course under resort listing, so I'll just put it here.

    I just love playing at the Legacy. Something about the place leads to a great day for me and my friends every time we're out there. As other reviewers mentioned, the course is in great shape year round. The course itself is fun, no gimmicky stuff, but still has lots of character. Very playable, but the bunkers can really get to you. The practice facility is one of the better ones in town, too.

    Overall, it's a great golf facility. Good staff, good F&B, great course, and very good practice area. The rates get high in season, but good deals can still be found via golfnow.com . I've scored some $40-50 rates in peak season as a twosome. Summer rates go for about $30 on golfnow.

    Some may not see the Legacy as a 5-star facility, and that's understandable, but it's consistently a great time out there and I feel it deserves it.

    I had such high hopes for this place. This is owned by a timeshare company that I have used many times. I have always been reasonably happy with their places. This place showed up as being about $300 per night, so it looked as if it should be GREAT.

    First thing we noticed is that this place is south Phoenix. It is close to the airport, but really away from most other things (though easy fwy to just about anywhere in the area). It is near South Mountain and if you venture away from the resort just a little, you will notice that you are not really in the best part of town. There are some pretty low income areas within about a mile radius (in any direction).

    The resort itself is rather self contained and tucked in off the main street. There are two gated communities of homes that are private ownership within the complex along with the many timeshare/rental resort buildings surrounded by the golf course. The course is the first thing you see and it is very well kept and looks to be a beautiful course. (Not being a golfer, I cannot give specifics).

    The two story condo buildings all around the complex appear to be nice and relatively new. They have beautiful lawns and well maintained courtyards within each building. Each unit also has either a balcony or deck area with chairs. The clubhouse and main check in are toward the back of the property and area gorgeous. Very nice buildings with great landscaping around them. There are also 2 tennis courts, a sand volleyball court and a sand kids play area. The pool on the far side of the clubhouse is HUGE and very stunning. Larger than most resorts I have been to. There is also a bar and great area for laying out or playing with the kids.

    So, why is it a 2? Well. Lets see. The studio condo that we stayed in was nice, but immediately upon entry we noticed that it smelled of smoke. We did not want to make waves, so we just delt with it. The kitchen appears to have been redone with tile counter and nice appliances, but the rest of the room looks like 1980's indian wallpaper and decor. The sliding screen on the door to the patio was broken and off track. Our sliding door to the bathroom would not close. And that is only the beginning. Those are all superficial and could be overlooked if all else was well.

    WE very quickly noticed that the walls and floor in this place were like rice paper, THIN THIN THIN. We could hear every word of conversations, running and even walking of every footstep of the people above us, the tv left on in the next room all night until the phone rang at 7am and the gentelman turned it off, the new neighbor checking in to his room at 1130pm, rolling his bag over the tile, hanging his close on the hangers in the closet and then going to bed to be awakened at 630am by a phonecall when he left, two people having a normal volume conversation until 330am in the next room of which we could make out every word, etc. I think you get the gist of it.

    I would really like to rate this place higher since the amenities and the resort itself area really very good. They have so many free things to offer and are really pretty good about their customer service. But, how can you rate a place any higher than a 2 when you are paying $300+ a night and cannot sleep. We overheard an entire line of people in line checking out complaining about similar situations and the lack of quiet. Thank goodness I did not have to pay nearly that amount to stay here, but its still a 2. If you have kids and really do not need to sleep at all, this place may be for you.

    It is likely that I will not ever go back here. I would rather stay cross town at their sister resort that is not quite as nice, but newly remodeled and quiet!

    We have stayed here over 20 times in the past 12 years - grounds are beautiful - rooms, decor OLD!  Rude check in Sun eve - first time we had to pay additional $ to stay in a unit away from the parking lot - $25 to stay near pool and $10 to stay with view other than autos :(.   No newspaper delivered at the door now as we are not elite guests - silverware drawer has coffee grounds, frig door dirty - the daily clean rooms are nice - the real workers are sweet, helpful and respectful but the overall cleanliness does nit rate any grade - next visit will NOT be here but I'll miss walking the Vineyard Rd, the canal, Summers Fruit Basket on baseline and the Farm - a must visit for lunch!!!!

    Their golf/cart/lunch deal is awesome!  The greens and fairways are getting much better (4th of July was ROUGH) and should only continue to improve...if you are looking for an affordable day at a great course...this is it!

    Beautiful set up.  Small condo type rooms with a small stove and clothes washer / dryer.  If I was in town for a few days this place would be perfect.  Rooms are nice and new.  The lady who checked me in was very nice and helpful (Emily).  Only bummer was that I could hear the guy in the room next to me on the phone.

    Love the Legacy.  Construction is underway in the summer, so looking forward to the results.  The clubhouse restaurant could use a facelift.  Green fees aren't cheap, but the course is fun to play.

    Spent  2 nights at the Legacy and came away with a generally good feeling about the place.
    The check-in was smooth, nice concierge who went out of her way to solicit me on any needs I may have for dinner. Recommended Rustler Roost, a nice wine bar/organic restaurant next door or a new sports bar,
    Room was nice and big with sitting area, and marble bathroom. Bonus was refrigerator, microwave, small stove and DW. Nice patio with 2 deck chairs where we had some wine on each night.
    On-site restaurant is really just a golf bar, however, had a free (corporate card) breakfast there both morning and it was top notch. Even had a chance to play golf one night tee-off, clubs were complimentary as I was staying on-site and they only charged us for 9 holes and threw in a cart. Very nice course and knowledgeable golf employees.
    Value was excellent as with corporate rate I stayed at the Legacy at a Hamptons Inn price.

    So we thought we were coming here for a fun AZ wedding... This place is a joke! The customer service is horrific. In fact, there is no service. If you have a request... SOL! No way they will accommodate your needs what-so-ever. It is not in their vocabulary. Seriously, does not compute. The golf course is fair at best and the accommodations are non existent. If you're thinking about staying here, think again!! You've been warned. Stay anywhere else but here! Stay at a holiday inn, best western or whatever! Do not stay here! This place is awful. No stars!!!! Ok I had to put one star for the review. Not true though. NO STARS!!!!!! Worst place EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    This review is also just for the golf course. This course is nice and wide open. The fairways are wide, but there are lots of bunkers. The course winds through a vacation home community and has water stops all along the way. The carts are decent and the surroundings nice.

    We weren't allowed to rive in the native lands but we fortunately did not need to too often. We booked online and got a voucher for a free hot dog and drink at the turn. There was also a popping pool party going on with a DJ that we could hear and see from one of the holes on the back 9. Would have loved to have jumped in a pool right after the round.

    Legacy sets the standard for resort courses in Phoenix (actually, the standard is much lower!).  The course is excellent, with perfect conditioning, soft sand, and wide open fairways.  The practice facilities are convenient, and water is plentiful (which is nice during the summer).

    This is also one of the best deals you'll find, with summer rates at $20-$30, depending on the time.  Can't beat that for this quality.

    And I suppose it also helps that I had one of my best rounds here, avoiding anything worse than a triple bogey (unbelievable for me).  This definitely deserves a spot in the rotation.

    We stayed here to be near a party in Ahwatukee for Memorial Day.
    Lovely grounds .. beautifully manicured and really lent a sense of being at a resort.
    The casita studio we had was very nice.  Extremely clean and nice quality bath amenities.  Very comfortable bed.  All of the furniture was in good condition.  
    Having a lanai that looked out on the grassy green landscape was delightful.  
    Easy check in, ample parking and the resort felt well tended and secure.  
    We did not golf or use the pool.

    Nice place but poor customer service and staff! Always state they are fully booked and not enough cleaning staff. Rooms are not updated and not thoroughly clean.  Rooms not ready to well past check-in time (7pm)..horrible for a family starting vacation.  They have had made major cutbacks since their own new ownership.  Condos is not not even stocked with enough toilet paper or extra paper products.  Greens on golf course were okay definitely not well-maintained compared to the other resorts in the area.  Overall this was an okay resort definitely would be a great place to stay with the family if ownership was different and the place was maintained the way it should be.

    My family and I decided to stay here for the weekend and we were pleased with the accommodations.  Good size room which was like a condo; kitchen, washer and dryer,fridge.  The pool is spectacular and even when tons of people were swimming,  everyone had chairs and a place in the pool.  Overall a good stay.  Two cons to this place: 1)The walls are super thin,  so if you have neighbors you will hear them.  2) This is the annoying part,  when you check in they send you to a desk to pick up a parking pass,  but they pitch a time share opportunity.  Told us if we attended the presentation they would compensate. .... No thanks.  The lady would not leave it alone and kept on about how they love families and how affordable the time shares are....That was the first impression of the resort and it really bugged us that they kept pitching it even after I said we had to change our baby's diaper.  We ended up just walking away. Good place to stay, but that sales pitch almost ruined it.

    I have stayed here many times and its always been very nice. The grounds and course are beautiful, the restaurant is marginal and pricey. I would recommend going elsewhere.
    I checked in on a Tuesday and staying until Saturday. I was told they make the room every 4 days and mine would not be made up during my stay. If I needed anything please call. This is ridiculous and the trash has built up, the bed needs changing, a burner on the stove doesn't work. With the cost to stay here you would think they would at least come in and tidy up maybe empty the trash. Other hotels for less money do it daily. I have noticed they must of let go a  lot of the maids, very few around anymore. Since this place was purchased by another company, I guess they think the guest are not of value anymore and they can treat us badly.
    Their attitude is "here's your room, you tend to it, we'll clean it after you leave"
    I hate it when new owners ruin a good thing!!!  
    Hot tip of the day: Go somewhere else!

    If you have to stay in Phoenix during the week, this deal cannot be beat!  I was dead tired at the end of my work day when I crashed here, so I can't speak to the amenities, however the room was cool, the bed comfortable, the staff friendly, and the price was unbelievable.

    I would love to come back with the Mrs. and have a mini-vacation here one day, the cost of a round of golf for guests of the resort is really good, and the rooms include a sink, stove, and even a dishwasher, so it'd make a great mid-week vacation.

    Also the french toast is excellent... I highly recommend it.

    Stayed here 2 nights for the Rock and Roll Arizona marathon. It was everything I needed, and nice to have a fridge, stove and microwave so I could make food at 5am before the race. Large bathroom, everything was well lit, quiet and comfortable. Big rooms and we managed to avoid the time share drama. We don't golf, so I can't comment on that, nor did we really use any facilities of the hotel, but loved the room, free parking, wifi and kitchenette.

    Heaven only knows how much I LOVE staying at a local hotel, but I can't say that my stay here was planned at all.  In fact it wasn't.  I had a "close encounter of the HVAC kind" in the middle of the Phoenix summer.  So, I looked for a fun place to literally "CHILL" out until the problem with the A/C was fixed.  This resort is next to one of my favorite businesses and I heard a lot about the course over here, so why not make lemonade outta the lemons I was handed.

    I spent 3 nights here and truly had a great time.  My favorite part about my stay was the pool area.  I had a fantastic time hanging out at the pool in the later part of the day.  The pool area is large with tons of seating and towel service.   There is a small wading pool for the younger kids.  This pool is truly relaxing as the crowd is more mellow and family-oriented and less of the "It's gonna be party y'all" crowd.

    I stayed in a standard suite.  The room was pretty large and thankfully, the room had a washer/dryer and small kitchenette (Microwave, fridge, range top), perfect setup for my home away from home.  Although this room was their standard suite, the room, by no means, is the standard hotel room size.  The room was large with a king size bed and a sleeper sofa with a dining table in the seating area of the room.  Oh, and how could I forget to mention the spacious and relaxing terrace.  I fell asleep out on my terrace 2 of the nights.  Oh that terrace was a beautiful gift in the nice AZ late night of mid-September.  As with most resorts that I've been to out here, the rooms are somewhat outdated in some fashion, so this resort is no exception to that rule.  Hey, who cares if the room is outdated if you have free Wi-Fi!  And they had free Wi-Fi

    The parking at the resort is free and there is ample parking.  The property is large, so, depending on where you are on the property, you may have to take your car to the pool or the front desk.  As far as food is concerned, there is an onsite restaurant that I did not patronize.  

    I'm not an expert golfer, but I play one on TV, so I know that this course is an inexpensive public course.  The course is absolutely stunning.  It was fun for me to be largely a spectator with the friends when I have "played" this course.  I'll be honest, I am a golfing companion.  But, this isn't a review of the golf course... this is a review of the resort....

    This is a place that is good for retirees, lovers, business travelers and a golfing get away.  GirlFriend weekend, bachelor party, think twice.

    I just stayed here recently with a Groupon deal. I don't golf so this is not a review of the course. I stayed in a Studio suit which was nice. They have a mini fridge, washer/dryer which we used with no problems. It also has a kitchenette with dinner ware and utensils and a table. A small patio which we didn't use simply because it's too hot right now to be outdoors. The decor desperately needs an update but it's tolerable.  My only complaint is that the WALLS ARE VERY VERY THIN. I couldn't sleep 2 nights out of three. You can hear an entire conversation at normal volume. If you have loud neighbors forget it. You won't sleep. You'll also hear your neighbors slam their doors if they don't close it slowly. I asked to be moved to a different room but my neighbors were only more noisy. I would have rated it 5 stars if not for the noise problem.  I'd love to return if they do something about the noise.
    I didn't have a chance to use the pool so I couldn't comment on that but the food at the restaurant was excellent. Had the Chilaquiles for breakfast and they were a tad spicy but very good. Had the steak twice during my stay and that was excellent! Coffee was perfect. Not bitter at all. Margaritas were great also. Just the right amount of alcohol.

    1: they only do housekeeping every 4th day.  When I called the front desk, they told me that housekeeping would not be coming to my room during my stay unless I paid extra.

    2:  while eating breakfast outside at the clubhouse/restaurant, the sprinklers came in and sprayed me and my group's table.  The waiter was nonplussed.  When we asked him about it he stated that he did not know when they come on or if there's a way to not have them spray the tables.  Thanks for the heads up.

    3:  aside from the golf course, there is nothing to do here.  The "resort" is stranded and there's no shuttle service.  

    4:  on the last day (a few hours before check out) housekeeping DID stop by.  What were they trying to accomplish?  Wake us up, clean our room, wait 3 hours, then clean it again??

    5: they'll try to sell you a timeshare ... So frustrating.

    6: the Internet connection is sparse at best and there's little cell phone reception out here.

    There's more, but those are the big ones.  We paid a lot of money for a hotel room that doesn't get cleaned.  Do not go here.

    I teed up for twilight rate at 215 pm . $53 bucks?!!! But it's worth it. The course is in great shape. I was cruising along until I hit the turn.  A couple of group were nice to let me play thru.  Fairways are well kept. Tee boxes were in check. The greens although slow, we're puttable ( is there such a word?).
    I was not able to finish. I want to come back and play the signature holes in the back nine.  You have to play this course when in PHX. Public course with a country club feel!!

    We did a blind 3.5 star bid on Hotwire, and got this place.  The hotel was a steal for the price we got.  The bed was huge and comfy, and the room was large and clean, with nice styling touches.  The view of the gold course was oddly comforting.  The balcony is surprisingly large.  We really enjoyed it, even though we don't gold.

    My only complaint is that they try to hard-sell you their timeshares.  After you check in, they send you to a separate desk under the guise of picking up your parking pass.  Then they try to get you to sign up for their timeshare presentations, and are rather pushy about it.  I learned later that you don't even really need the parking pass, so it was basically a ploy.  Wasn't happy about that.

    So in sum, great hotel, but be ready for the timeshare hard sell.

    I just have to love this place!  They are so friendly and accommodating (guest service and restaurant, the shop, not so much).  I love that they offer cute family activities and they have very reasonable prices.  They could definitely upgrade their appliances, etc., but overall you get great value for your money.

    Very nice.  It was my first trip to Arizona ever, and I was there for business.  The company that I was going to for my business trip recommended the Legacy.  It is not your typical hotel, but rather a huge, gorgeous resort that I would definitely consider staying at if ever in Phoenix for a vacation!  The room was huge and very comfortable, with a kitchenette, a sitting area, and a very modern bathroom.  

    My colleagues and I ate both dinner and breakfast at the onsite restaurant (the something-Grille), and I have mixed reviews of that.  The dinner was meh.  One of my colleague's dinners featured chicken that was pink in the center (oops).  The other had what looked like a teeny-tiny serving of ribs. My own dinner was just ok.  The chili that I tried had a sweet taste to it that I didn't care for.  The chicken-mango salad, on the other hand, was good enough, and was something I would get again.  

    The breakfast was great.  We had to eat outside because they were doing some work in the inside dining room, but it was already 70+ degrees at 6:30 in the morning, so that was A-OK.  We all ordered different things, and all were good.  Would definitely recommend getting breakfast there.  

    Overall, the customer service level was very high, the surroundings were beautiful, and there are plenty of other places nearby to get dinner, so I would most definitely return if ever in the Phoenix area again.

    Beautiful course. This is what desert golf is all about. $75 for cart, 11am tee time & range with unlimited balls. Took 4:15 to play.
    Tee box, fairways & greens were pristine. Dare i say, the best i've ever played on (been playing 1 year).
    Everyone, from guys grabbing golf clubs from car to the starter were all very professional and polite. I would highly recommend this place to all who are in Phx.  Its pricey, but definitely worth it.

    There aren't many places in South Phoenix for lunch, but this is one of them - if you even know about it. Located on a golf course next to the golf shop. Always pretty good service here and food is decent. The sandwiches look good but I have only ever had salads.

    Must try the course soon!

    It's been 18 months or so since I stayed here on business. Now I remember why.

    Started off with a dead roach caught in a spider web in the corner by the bathroom.

    Second night I awoke to the sound of crickets. Not a big deal, right? Except they were under the head of my bed! More specifically between the dust ruffle and the mattress! I killed 2 but a couple got away.

    And the toilet leaked down, and then refilled- every 5 mins or so. Turned off water valve.

    Reported the next morning to the front desk and was assured it would be taken care of.

    Get back after a long day to the very strong smell of pesticide. Must be a good sign, right? Until I hear the toilet refill again. And there are now flying bugs everywhere in the bathroom. I killed at least 20 before calling to be moved.

    At least they gave me a room across the courtyard but didn't offer to move me. I had to go to the desk, complete more paperwork, and move myself.

    No offer to comp a night, a meal, or anything else.

    I won't forget again why I don't stay here. It's a long-in-the-tooth, overpriced, unfriendly dump.

    Do yourself a favor - stay at the Az Grand or the Chandler Courtyard on Ray.

    If you need a place to stay.  This is a place to stay.  Compared to other options in Phoenix & Scottsdale, this is old tired and not as nice.  The area is a bit commercial and run down.  The grounds of the resort are well maintained, but outside of the gates, it's a bit depressing.
    Unimpressed with check in and management follow up.  If you don't golf, you could just as well stay at a suite hotel.
    With Phoenix traffic, you are a good drive from many good options for dining or entertainment.
    Our view from our patio gave a good opportunity to keep a good eye on the parking lot.
    There are many much better options available in the Phoenix area.

    The resort is nice but the carpet & furnishings are old & need replacing.  It is situated below South mountain. It is close to the Sky harbor airport & minutes from the fwy.

    We were invited to see a presentation to buy more points at the property & after the presentation we were BADGERED by the sales rep because we wouldn't upgrade. The man got up in a huff.. said something disrespectful & stormed off.  NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I BEEN TREATED IN SUCH A FASHION BY A RESORT STAFF MEMBER. Today I was not interested in any more points..  Now I would not recommend the frustration to anyone wanting a relaxing trip.   We have come here often & paid for friends & family to come. Not only would I no longer recommend it.. It is doubtful we will return this resort again life is too short to be treated in such a fashion.  

    My reason for not wanting to upgrade was because this property as well as several others in the chain have fallen into disrepair over the years. Most major hotel brands replace carpet, beds appliances regularly, but it has been years(if ever) here. I told them when I actually see that the properties are being better cared for we might consider upgrading..  not now.!  All I wanted was a nice relaxing diversion form the BS I put up with on a weekly basis. I didn't need this today..!!

    I am only rating the golf course on this one and if you enjoy golfing in the valley, then this is a course that you need to play. It is one of my favorite courses and it is at least semi affordable.

    The greens were clean and run a little fast, but of course that is a good thing. There are a bunch of fun little par 3's, and for me more then enough long par 5's. It is a challenging course but even a beginner can have a good time there.

    There is a little water scattered around the course and minimal desert spots. I really enjoy the course and it is well worth the drive.
