How to Get There
The Point Hilton Squaw Peak Resort is an older, somewhat sprawling (but also cramped) “resort.” I spent three nights there and enjoyed my stay for a business meeting, but am not sure I’d return for a vacation or leisure visit.
What’s good about the resort:
• The hotel staff seem friendly and genuinely care about providing good service
• Although a dated design, the spacious suite-style rooms are nicely appointed with two TVs, refrigerator for guest use, coffee maker
• You can get a great night’s sleep on super-comfortable beds, with ample air conditioning and black-out drapes that keep the room dark even at sunrise
• Meeting facilities are top-notch – clean, well-appointed, and with great food and beverage meals and service
• Free parking
What’s not as good about the resort?
• Annoying “resort fee” for many items I didn’t care to use – these are costs of doing business and should be rolled into the room rate, not assessed as an add-on, particularly if there is no opportunity to decline the resort fee (see my photo of what’s included)
• Rico’s restaurant would benefit from a complete re-do, from décor to cleanliness to food quality and customer service. Not an enjoying place to dine.
• Guestroom layout has the sink and vanity across the hall from the shower/bub and commode room – nothing they can do now, but I’m not a fan of this layout
• The pools are small and crowded, and the deck space for chairs and tables is limited – doesn’t really feel like a resort
All in all, it’s a great place for a business meeting, probably an OK place for a short couple or family visit.
Food is great. Right by the river ranch. Enjoyed the olde tyme shop where you get ice cream. Stay at north points or a casita. Rooms are big. Staff friendly. Great overall stay. All work- no golf this time. I will be back!
Family decided on a staycation and we found the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix. We were greeted with a friendly staff (Derek) during check in. Derek made several suggestions and upgraded us to a larger suite for a minimal upgrade. The room was spacious and slept our family of 5 comfortably. The pool area was very kid friendly with a water slide, mini golf, and a very lazy river. There are constant group activities put on by the staff for kids to enjoy and for parents to be kid free. The pool staff (Antonio) was very attentive to our needs.... ie food, drinks, and towels. We will definitely stay here again next year.
rom our roo
My two young daughters live in AZ so when I travel to see them this is a great all in one hotel. Restaurants on side are decent and so is the water park. We just stay there the whole weekend and it is nice to have everything on site. The place is a little dated and old but nice overall.
The Pointe Hilton at Squaw Creek was one of 6 hotels my family of 5 (3 kids ages 16, 14 & 11) stayed at during a trip out west. We rated it #5 out of the 6. We were there for 2 nights, July 5-7, 2018. We checked in quite late at night and check in was a breeze. The reception man and the bellman who showed us on the map how to find our room were extremely friendly. It was a nice introduction to Arizona. Being northerners, the heat was expectedly overwhelming even at 10pm. Our room felt as though the ac had only been turned on a short time before our arrival because it wasn’t very comfortable. We went straight to bed since we arrived so late and didn’t have any trouble sleeping. We were concerned that the ac wasn’t working but by the time we awoke it was clear that it just hadn’t been on long enough to do its job.
The water park was fun for about 20 minutes for my kids. As others have said, the pictures make it look much better than it is but that is to be expected. I’m sure younger kids (under age 7) would have been occupied longer. We shot some hoops at the water basketball area and went around the lazy river a few times. The pool was clean. My husband had a beer for $7. Since the kids were bored with the waterpark area quickly we went to the pool at our building. That pool had a swim up bar where we got a yummy cocktail for $11 each. The kids were bored there quickly too but my husband and I stayed and relaxed for a bit. The water temperature at all the pools was refreshing, not too cold and not warm. There was a hot tub area that was simply out of the question considering the heat but it was quite spacious and adjacent to the swim up bar. The space for the number of people at the water park and the building pool was perfect but July is off-season. I can see how during peak season it would easily get too crowded considering the space.
The room was relatively spacious and I appreciated the sink being separated from the toilet/shower. The pull-out sofa was sufficient for my 16-year-old. We were in the North Pointe building on the first floor, room 1112, 1 Bedroom Agave Suite. I was told at check in that we were in the newly remodeled building. The room seemed a bit run down with very shoddy workmanship (poorly done tile, ceilings, etc). It was not Hilton quality and “newly remodeled” must mean within the last 10 years. Our slider door overlooked a brick wall as many have shown in pictures. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either … simply not a typical Hilton. Outlets for charging devices were inconvenient and I was glad I brought long cords and a multiple outlet plug. It was clean, the grounds and the room. Shower water pressure was very disappointing. Would I stay there again? If it was convenient and I got another good room rate and I was passing through I would stay there but I’d probably look for something better first.
