Very dirty hotel. There was blood/ketchup? on the curtains, stains on the floor, filthy outdoor area. Pool area appeared clean but the rest of the facility was in poor shape.

BEWARE. This place is a dive. I chose Papago because reviews were very positive and pictures showed bright happy clean rooms. What I got was a dingy, dirty, sad room. Carpet was torn with many stains. Molding and window frame had not been wiped in a while. Unvaccumed food under the bed. Pool furniture has not been wiped in a long time. Hoping the bites on my arms and legs are from no-see-ums at pool, not bed bugs. Hair dryer can only be used on low, taking 5 minutes to dry my short pixie cut. Mostly quiet at least..

This hotel experience was the worst I've ever had. I dont ever write reviews but felt compelled to warn people not to spend their hard earned money to stay here. We waited at the so called lobby for 15 minutes waiting to be checked in.....nobody was around.... We had no fresh towels or maid service of any kind the whole time we were there...even though we asked politely twice. It was noisy and run down and 1 staff member was extremely rude. But the worst thing was how maintenance unclogged a sewer drain at the back of the hotel (right where we had to walk to get to our car) and LEFT IT laying all over the sidewalk and parking lot!!!!!! For 4 days we looked at that and it was still there when we left. Absolutely disgusting. I will spare you the details but i have photos. Please print this review so people can be warned!!!

Love love loved my stay here. Staff was very nice and helpful. I have to say from the outside looks like a trap motel but when i stepped foot inside and saw how pleasant and peaceful and the bird cage and the water fountain I knew i made a good decision going there. Will visit again!
