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.

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.

Good Business Location

Hotel was clean, quiet and convenient to my business requirements. Breakfast selection and quality was good. Friendly service and when my taxi did not arrive, transportation was provided through their shuttle service to my business meeting location, allowing me to make the meeting on time.

Great location. Rooms have been renovated recently, but remainder of property does appear somewhat dated. Room cleanliness was satisfactory, as was comfort of bed. Breakfast not good. Local van transportation very convenient.

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.
