I-8 across the desert
Best Western Space Age Lodge
401 E Pima Street, Gila Bend, AZ 85337
Definitely the most unusual hotel in Gila Bend, the 41 room Best Western Space Age Lodge is a special concept hotel built in 1964, one of the first Best Western properties. The space theme is reflected both in the construction and decor, most notably by a 28 foot high replica spaceship in the lobby. The hotel is situated on the south side of Pima Street in the center of Gila Bend, reached from exits 115 and 119 of interstate 8; it features free full breakfast, a pool/hot tub, onsite restaurant and meeting space for up to 30 people. The western boundary of Sonoran Desert National Monument is 8 miles away.
