A real getaway

Posted Nov 13, 2014
Pros: The rooms were a good size, had an empty fridge, which was perfect. There was a grocery store nearby. The place is clean, the gardens are well-kept
Cons: More information about the nearby town of Careful. :-)
Location: It is tricky to find businesses nearby as there are not a lot of signs advertising them. You need to look for them, which was nice - no sign pollutio
It was a bit difficult to find the hotel in the dark late at night, but we had a GPS that got us there. This is a nice property, even though we requested a room with a pool view and we didn't get it, our view was better, the mountains. Everything about this hotel was good in our experience. We had the buffet breakfast twice, was yummy. We had a smaller pool near our unit which was better as it was quiet. We had parking close to our unit. The only thing we missed was the small town nearby, slightly north of the hotel, which we didn't find until the evening before we were leaving and everything was closed.

Fabulously restored retro 60's Resort

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Pros: Just about everything. Staff and grounds were probably the best.
Cons: Although the rooms were spacious and beautiful the bathroom and shower were dark. A minor inconvenience.
Location: The scenery is wonderful, downtown Carefree was quaint. We were there during an art festival. Plenty of Golf and Golf tournaments.
I just loved this place. It was so retro 1960 and so beautifully maintained. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The restaurant was very good and the staff extremely pleasant. The grounds were meticulously groomed desert landscaping. You could just imagine old Hollywood lounging by the pool.

Noisy hotel

Posted Oct 31, 2014
The town of Carefree is absolutely great. There was a wedding the weekend we stayed there. We went to use the washroom in the lobby by the restaurant OMG. The mess and the smell kept us away. Around 2am we woke to screams The bridal party was drunk. It took more than an hour to settle them down. Be careful from the hot water in the bathroom, cause it's rreally HOT. I mean, burning, hot. When we checked out we were told there was a FEE of $21.86 to be paid!!!! Parking, WIFI etc. Ripp off, big time. I will not come back to this hotel.

Beautiful Location

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: The ground of Carefree Resort are outstanding and really well cared for. I especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the sky turn dark.
Cons: I would add a coffee shop or other small casual restaurant. I would also make sure the rooms are all updated.
Location: Because Carefree is located just north of Scottsdale & Phoenix, we were able to enjoy the Phoenix Zoo with our grandchildren.
Carefree Resort has a beautiful location. The ground are filled with palm trees and every kind of cactus. We attended a wedding and even though the outside service was facing into the sun, the bride walked over a bridge as she entered the chapel area. It was a picture perfect moment. Some of the hotel rooms have been renovated & some have not been. In either case the rooms are clean and maid service is very good. We arrived with a small baby & a toddler and were able to have two pack & plays available for our use. The hotel has only one restaurant and white table cloths and toddlers just don't mix. We had to leave the resort to get food at a Subway and a Dairy Queen. The only choice available in Carefree and Cavecreek. We found the local supermarket was great for bringing in food.

Nice hotel , convenient location if you have a car. The cab reservation provided by the concierge did not work out for us, the driver was 30 min late . We rented a car at the hotel, but when we returned the car at the airport there was no information on the computer ?! Restaurant food is not bad, but room service food quality was poor.

The hotel is nice

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Cons: the lack of cable tv was strange
it was a nice hotel a little old fashion feel to it if you want to be away from the city it is far away so this is something to think about

Awesome old school Arizona

Posted Oct 5, 2014
The Carefree Inn is one of my favorite places to stay in Az. It's quiet and clean. Very laid back with beautiful mountain and desert views. Off the beaten path but close to everything. The food is delicious and the service is 1st class.
