Great Value and Location

Good food, perfect location, and nice rooms! Staff were fantastic! Only thing I'd like is a bar/restaurant within or next to the hotel. Also, I would think pools would be a bigger focus in Arizona - but seems to be pretty common arrangements compared to other hotels in the area.

One night while attending the Sewing Expo

Clean, handy to the freeway, staff was great, including a shuttle to a restaurant as they felt it was safer that way for two women traveling by themselves. The shower was a bit tricky to manipulate until you played with it a bit. Never did see the Mall....

Overnight business stay

Other than an overbearing air freshener they seem to sue in the lobby I have no complaints. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower pressure was great! The morning buffet was fine too.

Great Location!

Within 5 miles of Sky Harbor airport and 5 miles from downtown Tempe and ASU. Rooms are on the smaller side with soft mattresses (too soft for me as I prefer firm) and firm pillows (i prefer soft). GREAT breakfast from 6 to 9:30am including eggs sausage, assorted breads, cereals and pastry, yogurt and waffle maker with strawberries and whipped cream etc.! Even biscuits and gravy too. Word to MGT, that They really should extend breakfast to 10am on the weekend though. Nice outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi and washer and dryer as well. A nice 2 night stay. I would def recommend this hotel to F &F going to the immediate area. Happy trails :-) P.S. the restaurant across the street Claim Jumpers is Awesome!

Bang for the Buck

Great staff, breakfast and afternoon perks. From the complimentary Ice tea, lemonade and cookies in the lobby, to the coffee and tea Carafes available. They even offer a free shuttle to nearby restaurants and mall if you do not want to deal with parking your car or driving after an unwinding dinner. For a 60.00 Motel, the higher priced chains could learn a few things. Although the pool is smaller and is not decked out with water-slides, it is clean and open till 10.pm Wish it were till 11Pm considering dinner and not wanting to swim the daylight. (too hot) We will be back, when passing through that way again. Compliments to GM J. Williams for running a Motel as he would like to see his family have access to.
