Beautiful desert settingPosted Jan 21, 2014
Pros: Beautiful private setting and a good value. Helpful friendly staff. Amazing scenery.
Cons: Some of the fixtures need to be updated. The bathtub was older but the shower was good. They only had one lounge chair on the patio. Two would be nice
Location: There are many beautiful scenic and historic drives in this area. About 30 minute drive to Phoenix.
We were planning a side trip to drive the Apache Trail and needed a central location outside of Phoenix. There weren't a lot of options but Gold Canyon Golf Resort came up. What a pleasant surprise. Set against the desert hills the facility offers beautiful views and a peaceful setting. The rooms are very spacious and even offered an upgrade to an outside jacuzzi for $50 which we took. Sitting outside in the jacuzzi listening to the birds and coyotes looking at the stars was awesome. Although the facility is older and in need of some updates it was still very nice, clean and comfortable. The grounds are amazing with cactus and desert plantings every where and the rooms are laid out like mini villas with maximum privacy and outdoor patios with fireplaces. I was very disappointed that they do not offer firewood for their fireplaces and was surprised they weren't gas. They charge $9.75 for an instant burn log which I think was outrageous. For the price the experience was a great value and we ended up staying an extra night. They offer vouchers for a nice continental breakfast which you can upgrade for $6 to a full buffet with an excellent omelet station. The towels were thick and plentiful. The bedding was crisp and high quality. We would stay there again. I would not recommend this as a place for children.

Not Your Standard Block of BoxesPosted May 27, 2012
A very different hotel with each of it's rooms being it's own little "casita" and the casitas grouped together in clusters on the grounds. I was visiting for a wedding, not a vacation, so I went with one of the lower priced rooms. The room was an adequate size and clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large enough, clean and had all the basics. The room had two levels, with the bed and bathroom on one level and couple steps down to the sitting/TV/patio level. I really enjoyed the room's private patio. Sitting on it at night emphasized one of this hotel's real advantages, it's quiet ! There's no road or traffic noise, only the hum of some of the other rooms air conditioners. However, this room's AC could have been a little quieter. The grounds are landscaped nicely with mostly native plants and it's a pleasant, but not short, walk to the on-site restaurants. The free continental breakfast was basic with cereal, bagels, danish, fruit, etc., but the seating in the restaurant where they have it offered nice views of the golf course, the pool, or the mountain that the hotel is built against. The major drawback that some might find for this hotel, would be the distance and steepness of the walk from the parking areas to most of the rooms. If walking isn't a problem, there are actually some hiking trails that start at the hotel are good for a morning walk #but take a lot of water !#. I will definitely stay here when I visit the area again.

Gold Canyon ResortPosted May 16, 2012
Pros: Staff was very helpful.
Cons: Parking was far away from room.
Location: Resort was beautiful. We had a patio looking out on the golf course.
A beautiful resort with a wonderful staff. The only negative is that there was no parking close to our unit. We had to walk a good distance with our luggage and temps were around 100.

Good stay, but keep this in mind.Posted Mar 15, 2012
My family really enjoyed our stay at this resort, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. 1. Find out which building number you are in. Some buildings are close to the main building and some are quite far away. 2. Parking is not great if your building is out on the far end. They have a service to pick you up and drop you off with a golf cart, but that is just one extra step each time you come or go. 3. Pick up snacks, pop, or water to put in the fridge. Typical mini bar payment rates for what is in the rom and you won't find vending.

Resort ReviewPosted Jan 16, 2012
When I made the reservations for this stay, I did not realize that we may be staying in a room that was far from where I parked my car. I was attending a wedding and was going to be coming back to my room both nights after dark...I was told to stop in at the front desk and they would get me to my room via a golf cart. Upon the second request...the clerk did, quickly, find us a second room closer to where my car was to be parked.
