Hotel Review

2 miles from family we visited. Close to airport and close to a friend in Mesa. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Some young people checked into the room next door and came back around midnight and were loud. Had to call the front desk. They asked them to quiet down and they did. I talked to the front desk the next morning and they moved us to another, nicer room.

Great time here

We went to Tempe for the Insight Bowl. The people that worked in the hotel were great! We asked alot for directions to places and they were great about giving them and different suggestions. The hotel was clean, the bathrooms bigger than some I've seen, and it was close to a mall and just an overall great location for everything we were doing.

Look for a better accomodation

Room was clean and ready upon arrival. However, you get what you pay for at a Best Western. Closet space was very small. This double queen room was meant for a single traveler. Single sink and lots of clutter with advertisements. The sink would not drain. The complementary breakfast is best avoided (corn flakes and warm milk). You can hear every word said by neighbor next door.

Phoenix Tempe Best Western

I was there on business for 1 night. I called in advance for the hotel shuttle to pick me up at 11 am when my flight was to arrive. No one was there so I called the hotel and they sent the shuttle then (about 20 minutes later). The room I was given had NO HOT WATER in the sink but there was in the bathtub. I was tied up in biz mtgs the whole time I was there so I didn't change rooms, just used the bathtub for hot water.

Quality at a good price

Stayed only a couple of nights to chill after long int'l flights. All Staff friendly,helpful&courteous.Rooms absolutely spotless and of pleasing quality.Nice atmosphere.Breakfast was v.good i thought for a buffet with egg,bacon & waffles as well as usual bagels etc. The free shuttle from airport very useful. Used to return to airport to hire a car and journey onward. Pity couldn't stay longer. Good location/base.

Great Location For Visiting The Area!

I was in town to visit a sick family member, and to attend a walk for POP prostate cancer at Kiwanis Park in Tempe and the location of the hotel was idea to do both. The staff timely answer my questions with a smile.

The hotel is located walking distance to a mall and dinning area. Easy access to the freeway, and short drive to the airport. I enjoyed my stay.
