McKenzie Inn - Exceeds Expectations

5 on March 18, 2014

The hosts provided timely service to meet all of my business requirements and understood I was there for business. They had taken geniune interest in enabling my mission, unlike Hilton, Hyatt etc... which charge additional for launder and press services, not charge at McKenzie Inn. My hygiene products which were removed from my possession courtesy of TSA were graciously provided. Food was outstanding and at no additional corporate cost. High speed internet, printing, and VoIP teleconference services met demands, standard stationary supplies available. Signage to location needs improvement, however location is central to I-10 Corridor regional developments. Overall McKenzie Inn exceeds expectations. Had I not recieved such superior service I would never have taken this time to write this review.

The proximity to the SkyDive Arizona Drop Zone is fantastic!

Thank you very much for the comfy stay and accommodations. I really enjoyed the kitchen, which is something you don't get at other hotels! The proximity to the DZ is fantastic! Best Regards Ilya K.

Not the cheapest accommodation available in the area .. and one can see why. But why not .. ?? Michael and Pani are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make ones stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible Lovely house and great bedroom accommodation with en-suite facilities. Michael is ex-USMC and a farmer specialising in organic produce whilst Pani is a local teacher .. a lovely couple and a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

What a great deal. For little to no more than you would spend for an average hotel room and breakfast, you get a wonderful view, a quiet nights sleep on a good bed, and the inn is far nicer than anything in it price range. The most important part? The host are warm and inviting.

We came to Skydive Arizona, Eloy for a skydiving event and were interested in a place to stay that would be very close to Skydive Arizona. McKenzie B&B has a perfect location which is also very easy to find when getting there! Michael and Pani's hospitality is just outstanding - everything is being taken care of, the house is clean, quiet at night time, we were offered to substitute breakfast for dinner as we had a very early start every morning. The Janette room we stayed in is big and very comfortable, it also has an outside door to the patio. McKenzie B&B is a part of the Lucky Nickel Ranch the outside area is neat and clean. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back someday.

Relaxing stay

4.6 on March 15, 2010

We stayed at the McKenzie Inn on our way back home and really enjoyed the hospitality of Michael and Pani. Our room was well decorated and very clean, and the breakfast was delicious. The inn itself seems to be very new and the farmland surrounding the inn provides an idyllic and relaxing setting. Attractions within a few miles include skydiving and hot air balloon rides. We had a wonderful stay.

Wonderful place to stay

This was my me and my husband's first experience at a bed and breakfast and I was wonderfully surprised. We stayed for 2 nights while doing some skydiving at a nearby drop zone. Mike and Pani McKenzie were wonderful hosts. The rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortablel. Breakfast was really good on both mornings and enough food to last me all day. Fresh baked cookies awaited us on our return the first day. Its extremely quiet at night. A tour of the certfied organic farm was extremely interesting. I will be going back to this B&B. Thank you Mike and Pani we enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Country Setting

We have a 5th wheel and stayed in one of the RV spots at The McKenzie Inn. The Hosts were very friendly and took us on a tour of the Inn which was a pleasant surprise as we were staying there in our RV and did not expect a tour of the Inn. We had a wonderful nights sleep because it is so peaceful there. Since it is away from the city lights the stars were magnificant! If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place! Also, these folks definately have the gift of hospitality. Do be sure to call ahead and make reservations as space is limited.
