Great Location

I was in Phoenix for the Nike Oasis Basketball Tournament that my daughters club team was participing in. The hotel was close to where they were staying at the Arzonia resort. The hotel was in a great location easy access to the freeway to get to the different venues for the games, the mall, and various resturants are walking distance. We had a full breakfast with various items. I wish there would have been more fruit.The room was spacious. We arrived late after 11pm and the gentlemen that was on duty had the best customer service.

Very Good value

We stayed for 6 nights and was pleased with the hotel. The Staff is Great! Greeting you, answering questions, clean rooms, a lot of choices for breakfast. The location is very good, near everything you could think of; shopping, not too far from the airport, near the interstate, great gasoline prices. It seems to be the thing now in Every hotel to have lots of teeny pillows that look fluffy but are worn out. The bed was very firm and a pillow top mattress pad would've helped soften the hardness. These are my 2 suggestions to the hotel. Get real pillows and pillow top mattress pads. We would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay there again when we go back to visit.

Very comfortable

I was not in my room long but it was very comfortable and clean. Remote control was one that is easily sanitized which I had not seen. Good idea. Room had microwave and small refrigerator which I did not need but nice perk. Check in was quick and easy. Free Breakfast was also nice. Staff is friendly.
