I stayed at the Smoke Tree many times in their suite called "Rancho Raymundo" and must say you'll likely never find anything like it. It's not so much the fantastic Scottsdale location, quiet seclusion or the mature, desert oasis, but more so the people who have run it for nearly half a century. When I stayed there, it was operated...

The Smoke Tree Resort is a great find. The front is deceiving but don't let that stop you. Behind it is a little oasis. Rooms are clean and equipped. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Don't hesitate to ask-they'll get you what you need. AJ's grocery store is great-it is located right by the resort. I would highly recommend this...

My husband and I traveled to Phoenix for the 2011 Ironman Arizona. Most hotels near the race site were booked or very expensive. After looking on Trip Advisor I found this little gem. From the front it may be off putting due to a restaurant space being renovated. However, turn the corner and it's a little desert oasis. Beautiful landscaping,...

I am currently staying at the Smoke Tree Resort and truly believe this is a hidden gem. My unit has new carpeting, queen bed that is really comfy, kitchenette with microwave, frig, coffee maker and wet bar. Very nicely decorated with flat screen tv, leather chairs, etc. There is a fabulous grocery store (A.J.'s about a block away in a...

Had made a reservation at this place online based on reviews here on Trip Advisor. The reservation was made 3 months in advance. When we arrived in Scottsdale the GPS took us to the address but I drove away unsure the place was still in business. The parking lot was empty, there was an empty restaurant space I gather and...

STmanager, Manager at SmokeTree Resort & Bungalows, responded to this review

This guest did not stay at our resort or even speak to any of the staff. There is a vacant restaurant space on the North end of the property but that has been the case for the past four years. This does not effect the grounds, grass or gardens of the Resort. We have asked Tripadvisor to remove this unfair...

A fabulously relaxing stay. The accommodation was great with the only slight criticism being the lack of plates and bowls. However, all in all great value for money and still worthy of 5 stars. Great for bird watchers.

I agree with the other posters who think this place is a hidden treasure.- a little oasis with pretty grounds, clean and comfy, well located. The rooms are nicely renovated, comfortable, spacious and well appointed. It's an older, character property, family-run. Yes, the showerhead was cranky and certainly the front entrance is less than prepossessing, due to the vacant restaurant...

Third visit. Still the best deal in town. Hot weather rates get silly low.

The Smoke Tree was a hidden paradise. My husband and I traveled to Scottsdale for Spring Training and hoped to have a nearby hotel to make getting to baseball games easier. The Smoke Tree was perfect. We had a lovely room surrounded by a beautiful courtyard. Eric was very nice and helpful with directions and dining suggestions. Nearby, A J...

My husband and I stayed at the property on March 4 for two nights. We were originally booked to stay 4 nights but changed to stay at a new property to be near a relative. After we were escorted to our room, we wished that we had not changed our reservation. We were in room 31, with a large patio,...
