Rated 4 out of 5 by JagsFan Great get away only 20 minutes from the airport
This is the second time I have stayed at the Wild Horse property; both for work related travel.
The property is set back away from the busy city life, with great areas for relaxation, outdoor activities (golf), or a spa visitation.
I found the rooms to be the typical comfort level of a resort-style Starwood property, with staff more than willing to assist your needs. While not over the top plush, it strikes a great balance of price and value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChrisP Average: Stay- Away during Spring Break
The Hotel was nice and suite was comfortable. Food was very good and poolside staff / front desk were excellent. However, hotel was clearly understaffed; poorly set up for the spring break crowd. Pool chairs/towels and water stations were scarce; our room was never cleaned until after 4pm, and minimum cleaning performed (left full garbage, insufficient towels, no bedding for sofa, no coffee refill...). Tennis hours were poor. Not SPG standards

This resort was nice the view was exceptional, the staff very friendly and ready to please. I have stayed here a couple of times and I think that I will pass on staying in the summer, the hallways are just to hot and muggy and the rooms don't get as cool as we want them. I stayed in the suite and expected a little more, but overall it was nice. When I booked this room the reservation people told me something different then the hotel provided.

I was at the hotel on a business trip with a few extra days for R&R. Overall, I had a good stay. I enjoyed the tranquility of the hotel. Our only challenges were housekeeping. Housekeeping came to our room two times and just walked in without knocking or acknowledging themselves prior to walking in. Other than that, everything else was good (except the cool weather!). Great location for a girls weekend (once the outlet mall opens up).

We have been coming back to this resort for ten years. We love the ambiance and the Native American themes that embody the experience.
The staff was extremely attentive to our needs from the time we checked in until we checked out 8 days later. I never tire hearing thank you, my pleasure.
The only constructive feedback I would offer has to do with noise in the hallways when wedding type events are held at the hotel. We were on a SPG Preferred floor and were subjected to rowdy drunken wedding party guests on our first (Sat.) night. I might suggest that the security team be a little more proactive, policing the halls from time to time to head off hallway partying after events. The guests shouldn't have to call down to the desk multiple times after midnight to get the noise to stop.
Having said that, the balance of the week was lovely and we will be back.

I have to say what an amazing job Erin at the Spa did. She could tell my friend and I had a nice time but were not completely satisfied. She went the extra mile and made sure we were extremely happy.
Also I can't remember the Bartenders name in the lobby bar (actually below the lobby) she made me her signature martini which was phenomenal and made special accommodations for my Gluten free diet. She deserves a huge thumbs up

Rated 4 out of 5 by JSF17 Poor service
This trip was basically ruined by a la k of communication. You have a destination restaurant that I booked months ahead. Your management chose to close it for a staff recognition dinner. I got a note with a mention of the closure without recognition of a confirmed reservation. No return calls or emails and I had to wait to talk to the Restaurant Mgr the night before after getting another confirmation. Extremely un professional .

Rated 3 out of 5 by kwaldo Dirty sheets
Disappointed that one of the beds in my room was dirty, the sheets had clearly not been changed from the prior guests! Hair, stains, other items made that clear.
Staff was very nice, however not one mentioned my being a starwood preferred guest, which normally is mentioned at check in. Fee for fitness center use was outrageously high for a one night stay.
Overall stay was just very average. I expected more from this resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bailey50 Perfect for wedding
All the wedding guests loved staying in the hotel and the beautiful wedding in the Bee Hive Garden. The servers at the wedding added so much to our comfort and celebration. Thank you all!
Also, don't miss the 2.5 mile walking trail along the river. It's a great way to begin the day.

I have stayed here before since they have accessible rooms on the 1st floor with roll in showers and joining rooms. when I called for reservations I had a very complicated request for two rooms for different lengths of stay, one accessible, one not accessible. I was certain they would not book it correctly and I would have to deal with it when I arrived. However, they did an excellent job the first time-no changes necessary.

Stay October 4-9. Arrived at 11pm, no one at the front door to help with bags. Found a roach in the room. All 3 pools were to cold to use. Response form the front desk was" we turn the heaters on next week" One Hot tub to hot, the other to cold. Told the boat to wild horse starts at noon on sunday. 4 calls and 45min later told by hotel employee they made a mistake. Manager refused to provide dinner for two because of mistake

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mk121 Good stay
Everything was very nice. The only thing I would suggest is to upgrade your pillows and linen. The restaurant was very accommodating and made be a salad with grilled chicken instead of there chicken salad.
Pool area was nice and so was the spa. I would stay again Golf course was great

Rated 3 out of 5 by jgbond13 Great View
Great views from the hotel and attentive staff. Outstanding staff in dining facilities. Clean rooms. Preferred members will have rooms with great views but sun will cause them to be warmer than average.
If you are going for a conference, be prepared for a long walk from room to conference area. Also, there are 3 WiFi zones which will cause problems if you walk between conference area, lobby area and guest room area.

Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa is our family's 'go to' place to gather for special events. As always, our stay and celebration went perfectly.
The staff of the WHP Resort are the best!.
Kai dinner was made even more special by such a wonderful group of guys. Amazing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JordanJ Great location, but surprise charges left a bad taste in my mouth
Beautiful facility, not as nice as some of the SPG resorts I have stayed at, but still very nice. *VERY* long walk to our room but only because they put us close to the spa because we were using the spa on Saturday.
Room was nice, bed very comfortable, view very nice. Phone handset didn't work so i had to use the corded phone which was not a big deal. The thing that *REALLY* bothered me was that when I checked out there was 40-50$ in unexpected miscellaneous fees Resort Fee + Parking Fee. On top of that, when I called to question them I was treated very rudely and informed that I had just not read the sign.
I am not a "cheap" person, I have no problem paying for nice meals - buying treatments at the spa etc, but I felt completely Nickel and Dimed here which is why I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Shame because its in a great place for little weekend getaways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KT33 Nice stay, plan on extra little expenses
The hotel staff is fantastic! I would recommend this hotel on that alone. The spa was very nice, and the food was exceptional!
However, everything has a cost - from internet use, to the fitness center, to playing the piano (yes, I was told that it was $13 for me to play the piano downstairs, where there was no one around). I was shocked and surprised that there wasn't a thing that was included in the stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Illinoisvisitor257 Pleasant resort
My family (wife plus 2 kids ages 5 & 7) stayed here for 5 nights. We really enjoyed our stay. We started in a standard 2 bed room with a pool side view. We were able to upgrade on night 3 to a deluxe suite with a mountain/pool side view. The staff helped us move all of our belongings to the new room. The suite was great, it was 2 -2.5 times larger with a huge bathroom. We found the rooms to be clean, comfortable and very nice. Previous reviewers have complained about the high price of room service. HELLO, you are at a resort. If you want cheap food and cheap service go find one of those discount chain hotels. I only have 2 negatives to report. There is a mandatory daily resort fee that covers Wifi service. Well the Wifi service never worked for us until the last day when the resort was pretty empty. The second negative item was the heaters were only working for 2 of the 4 pools. These are not deal killers for us. We enjoyed ourselves so much we would definately return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan100 mostly excellent
clean, great environs, excellent food and facilities; main drawback: too expensive, w extra fees for many things that other hotels include; the food at the restaurants and gift shop was excellent, but approx 2-4 times as much as out in town; in-room movie cost $17!; wireless internet $13/d; maybe others are used to this level of expense, but not us. And food for conference breakfasts was only ordinary.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kaz119 Not as good as I was expecting
Room cleanliness was the major issue. reported the issue to management who contacted housekeeping. the problem was somewhat taken care of, but not to my standards. For 2 nights we were plagued by mosquitoes in the room. Had to have the room sprayed twice. Some staff had an attitude of couldn't care less about customer service. The best feature of the hotel was the spa, the staff were very helpful here.

This was my second visit to Wild Horse Pass. I liked it so much the first time that we stayed there the evening before attending a conference in Phoenix. What stood out for me, this time, while I was waiting for someone to assist me at the front desk, a valet came over to see if they could assist - and indeed they could. I really appreciated their effort.
Lovely grounds, great food and fun pool slide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda13 retraining the hotel desk staff
Checked in after a very long flight from the East Coast.,Upon arriving it was pouring rain
when my..sister and I arrived at the Resort soaking wet 3 hours late,,we were not greeted at all by the desk clerk instead he scowled at me. He told me what a bad night he was having and guess what they had cancelled my room. Really? Finally, after a very uncomfortable time I was finally checked in ,
It was very unfortunate that Brandon the agent decided to put his problems out there instead of dealing with me the guest.in a welcoming manner.
The next morning I spoke to Sean the Asst Mgr. He could not have been more helpful a true professional.
Since. he made right with everything I was able to enjoy my 8 days at the Resort which is my absolute favorite place to go
The agent checking me out did not even inquire about my stay..I was surprised bad customer service.
The door men absolutely fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Veronica Wireless Internet weak in room
Very poor wireless internet service in the room - it was so weak I found it difficult to work. It kept dropping off or diminishing in strength. I checked out at 6 AM and went to Starbucks to be able to do my work. Later the hotel sent me a note apologizing for the poor service. They need to upgrade and improve wireless service if they want to have business customers. We need to work from our room.

We typically do not go out for New Year's Eve but decided to this year with the stipulation that we would stay where ever we went out. We decide to go to Wildhorse Pass and dance at Aria. We got to the room and changed for dinner and then went straight to the club afterwards. We had a great evening and got back to the room and fell asleep around 3a. At 4a, the smoke alarm sounded. This was not a short buzz but went on for several minutes. We stepped outside our room but no one else was around. I would expect staff to advise guests to whether it was a real emergency or not! We ended up walking the halls for a bit and determined on our own that there wasn't an emergency! We finally got back to sleep around 5. Needless to say this was a short night! Smoke alarms are disorienting no matter where you are but especially someplace that is not yours and to not know if there is true danger or not!

Rated 2 out of 5 by aprilsammy This hotel needs to be upgraded
There was no wifi in the room unless you paid for it. My hot spot device did not work. You had to pay to use the fitness center. The room was dark unless you opened the draperies on to the parking lot. The layout was circuitous for the meetings. I had to ask 2 times to have cobwebs/spiders removed from elevator light. Remote on TV had to be replaced. Remote was terribly slow. Bad odor in hallway.

My wife and I were recent guests at Sheraton Wild Horse. We enjoyed our time at the resort. Staff, pool and amenities were great! The only slight negative was that the walk from the parking lot to the room was a little longer than anticipated. However, I would not hesitate to stay here on a future trip. Walking trails are great and the golf course is beautiful! Overall, a great place to stay!

I love this property. We stay once a year and I'm always pleased. This was my first time staying on a holiday weekend, 4th of July. It was very busy. The common areas were crazy at times. But the staff seemed to be on top of things. The long lines seems to move fast and quality of service was still there. Aji spa, I visit regularly (love the locals programs). Can't wait to return.

The staff was friendly and wonderful at providing outstanding service. The room left much to be desired. I am a Platinum level spg member. I was given a room far, far away from the main facilities which did have a slight mountain view but was spoiled by the storage tanks and barns I had to overlook. The grout in the bathroom was dirty and mildew was growing in a corner near the shower.

The service we received at the hotel was some of the best we have ever had. All of the staff were very friendly and there to meet our needs. We really appreciated Gregory's help with transportation, spa appointments for my wife and eating recommendations. The only negative we had was the a/c in our room did not cool well. They came and looked at it, but could not get it fixed.
