4 star Resort - not so much
The hotel was cheaply remodeled. Many things broke with minutes of being there. Staff seemed stressed and over whelmed. Check-in staff were rude to all customers that I saw. Surrounding area was fun and beautiful views. Hotel was not worth the price and was most certainly not a resort.

Choose another hotel
The hotel has gone downhill from when we stayed here some 15 years ago. The walls are paper thin. You can clearly hear the conversations going on next door (some noises you didn't want to hear). The pool was dirty. We went swimming in the pool and sat in the hot tub and there was straw and dirt in the pool. Not sure when they cleaned it, but it wasn't relaxing. I would advise you not to eat at the Lariat (in house restaurant). Service while ok, the food was cold and preparation was sub-par. I don't mind paying more for good food, but this was not one of those times. I would suggest looking into other hotels near North Scottsdale instead of this "resort". It felt, old, unkept and a bit rundown. (i.e. spider webs on the pool furniture, cushions w/ stains, etc.)

Adequate for the price
Room was nice for the price but not exceptionally clean - something was spilled down the front of the dresser and into the drawers and was quite sticky. Couldn't get it off with the wipes we had. Be aware there is a "resort fee" of about $15 a day if you book through a third party site, which ate up our savings by booking here.
