This is my third time staying here now, from March 13-20, this time got a cabin in the back with a king size tempurpedic bed and pillows which felt incredible. Again as always staff and owner were really nice, and helpful with attractions near by. The pool and hot tub were clean. Had a tennis court and basketball hoop, did...

We stayed here out of necessity--it would have been dark if we had tried to make it to the campground at Organ Pipe Cactus. But we're glad we did. We agree with the other positive reviews--the "cabins" are clean and rather cutesie (in a good way). Management was friendly, and the price was right (contacting them direct, rather than thru...

We got a cabin at La Siesta. The place is immaculate, the cabins are surrounded by a very nice, lush and well maintained garden. There is also a small swimming pool. We only stayed one night and that was fine as these cabins are tiny. You can barely move around the king size bed. I like to read before I...

Thank you for your nice review of our facility. Our cabins are small and cozy. They are 200 square feet while our rooms are 400 square feet. All of our accommodations are equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers, and complimentary coffee. Our grounds are very lush and beautiful. Our groundskeeper does a very nice job. Our housekeepers are very good...

Clean and eclectic room! The room was large and the shower was a separate room from the toilet, bonus for 2 people sharing the room. Susan at the front desk was friendly and helpful and told us a bit about the history of Ajo Ahhh... Memory foam beds! I wish we had time to try out the heated pool and...

I stayed at this motel about 25 years ago and remember moldy carpet and my wife complaining about it being the worst motel we'd ever stayed in. Flash forward 25 years and I'm a little dubious about staying here again, but it is the best option for those wanting to stay near Organ Pipe Cactus Nat'l Monument. Surprise, surprise, it...

Thank you for sharing your past and present experience of our facility. We are so happy you and your wife decided to give us another chance. The motel has gone under a big change starting with new ownership. We have tried our best to upgrade and remodel our rooms. The motel itself has been here for 40 years. We look...

My family of 5 recently stayed in the "private house" on the property. Everybody was very friendly; the service was excellent. The rooms and property were clean and inviting. We felt safe and comfortable. I also feel like it was a good value for the price. We didnt use the pool but it looked nice, and my son had fun...

Yes the private house is definitely a great accommodation for a family. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Please come again and enjoy the pool and hot tub. They are open year round, weather permitting. Your son is a very polite young man. I was the person who gave him our basketball to use. We hope...

The staff was very attentive and hospitable! They offered free bottled water to their guests in the lobby along with free candy. There was always someone on staff readily available at all hours, which is harder to find than you might think in Ajo.

We are so happy to be of great service to you. All of us here try our very best for our customers. The bottled water and candy is definitely a nice perk. We look forward to your next visit with us.

The cabin was spotlessly clean, the owner a dynamo of energy, and the bed so comfy I overslept--thereby being 35 minutes late to check out without any hassles. Highly recommend this place. (Do be advised that the cabins do not include cookware, plates, or eating utensils. You get a fridge, a microwave, and a coffee pot. There's a gas grill...

Many would feel too cramped in one of these cabins and go for the larger motel rooms. But, I'm a romantic and loved the charm of it. Yes, it's small and yes, the sink is outside of the wee bathroom- but for us it was just right as Goldilocks might have said. I say, go for it. The front office...

Perfect mattresses; never slept better. Plenty of charm and service beyond expectations. I left my phone charger in my room. When I called, they'd found it and they mailed it to my home at no charge. Another reason why I recommend La Siesta and would gladly return.
