Travel Blogs from Phoenix
Less than a two hour flight to Phoenix with Southwest Airlines. It is warm here! Well, about 17 degrees Celsius. We picked out our mid-SUV Chevy Captiva. 10 minutes’ drive downtown and we found a stretch of cheap motels in a reasonable area.

Our stay was great. A few pools/ hot tubs throughout the property to explore. Some hot tubs were not hot, they were pool water luke warm. The property is fun to walk around. HIlls and rocky.
