American Executive Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were a bit disappointed when we first pulled in the driveway. There were several rough looking men standing in the parking lot smoking. This Motel is not in a desirable area. The room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately a guy sat in a chair just outside on our non-smoking room and smoked several times. His smoke was sucked in to our AC unit and sent directly in to our room. Terrible smoke smell and quite disappointing.

It was very clean and quiet here. The pool was clean too.

This an old, run-down hotel which, in person, looks nothing like what their website picture portrays. I attempted to cancel this reservation in person and over the phone and was told by the manager that "their system was down," which based on the rest of the hotel, I can certainly believe. He would not cancel the week-long reservation without charging me for one night, even though I didn't stay there. Avoid this hotel.

Had a very lovely entrance way with a fountain and a pool behind the fountain. Very appealing. My adequate, albeit small room, had the amenities of a refrigerator, stove with some pots below it to cook in, a refrigerator and a large-screen TV. Two supermarkets were within walking distance so one could pick-up some groceries, fix some meals to save money, and watch HBO movies or other shows, or go out to the pool for a swim. Very restful escape place. Several good Asian restaurants are within walking distance, as were the usual fast-food places and a Denny's. Altogether, a very pleasant place to stay for a few days.

It was dirty, broken and nasty! The room was "nonsmoking" but the butts, burn marks and smell was clearly a lie. The manager lied when he was confronted!

Hotel was dirty and small. Sheets looked like they hadn't even been changed when we checked in. Found food stuffed under the bed when we were getting ready to leave Also was in a questionable part of town. Actually checked out early and went somewhere else. Worst hotel experience of my life.

Great, friendly staff, and Very helpful. The location was nice very peaceful and quite.

Left and went elsewhere, wouldn't refund my money. Loud right by light rail

First of all his motel strip was once a domestic violence shelter. There seems to have been some attempt to renovate by the people who bought the motel strip, but it is obvious that they did the minimum and cut very deep corners. The place needs the rugs ripped out and a through cleaning. They charge for ice, you get a 1/2 inch of some mystery soap that isn't soap at all and packets of what seems like dishwashing liquid that no one in their right mind would use on their body. There is a head board for a king size but a full size bed and all of the furniture is broken and the only chair in the room is deeply stained and stinky. Then you check in is pretty late (3PM) in the afternoon and you must check out by 11 AM. where most places in AZ is 12 noon. The worst part is that at 8:30-9:00 AM they start banging on you door like there's a fire screaming "housekeeping" even if you have the flimsy sign DO NOT DISTURB and then they will come back an hour later to make sure you understand that check out is at 11. The place was a Zoo with people standing literally outside the door smoking and talking loud. I had my own blanket and sheet because the sheets on the bed were stained and dirty. I used their flimsy towels but that was about all. I left the place more tired than we I got there. The icing on the cake was when I complained to the Indian woman who took my room key when I was checking out about the banging on the door. She said, "Sorry, but they are Mexican and cannot read"!

I booked a 3 night stay here, this wasn't awful, but not good either. The room was cozy, but outside looks very sketchy. When we checked in, the receptionist told us there was no hot water for the night, maybe in the morning. The next night the water had shut off completely. The bed was uncomfortable, the water temperature was very sensitive to the toliet, faucet, and even neighboring water use. When the housekeeping staff. Leaned they didn't leave new soaps, which isn't the biggest deal in the world, but still disappointing. I won't stay here again, or even in this area.

First efficiency apartment had a bad air conditioner. In the evening, we could not stay there. We had to move to another efficiency even though we thought we should have been somewhat compensated for having to move everything we had to a different unit. The second unit took a long time to cool off. After about 3 hours it finally did, but we found this air conditioner had also broken down in this unit over night. We also found the one and only light in the bathroom had burnt out. Fortunately, we were leaving early that morning. Cannot recommend this American Executive Inn since you have to have working AC in Phoenix in the summer!

From the 3+ rating, I expected this hotel to be satisfactory. However, I should have know from the low price that it would be a disappointment. I arrived close to midnight for check-in. The key I was given did not work. After two attempts, the employee on duty came to unlock the door for me. The room was interesting to say the least. The decor was the tackiest I have ever encountered with a full-sized jacuzzi in the middle of the room. There was a large, dead bug on the comforter. The restroom was clean. The toilet paper seemed thinner than one-ply and the soap felt like it was made from used cooking oil. This hotel felt more like the type one would bring a sex worker for an hour or so versus spending a night to get some rest.

The room was huge, and beds weren't too lumpy, but the noise of the light rail line going east and west on main street woke us up several times during the night. Maybe it was because our room was right in front, that we were bothered so much. In any case, it was a very inexpensive stay, in a town known for it's expensive rooms, so we can't complain too much.

Our Non-smoking room smelled like smoke. The beds felt old, but the sheets were soft. Our room was in a dead-end ally with no parking, but someone else parked in front of our room anyway. The neighborhood felt sketchy, with a lot of people loitering in the parking lot. There was the sound of metal grinding going on when we arrived, but it stopped before bedtime. The coffee maker failed after one use. The rooms were affordable and clean despite their age.

Quality of hot tub n room was much more than expected...also very quiet at motel and surroundings...

The staff was rude and the room wasn't as listed online

My family took a road trip from Chicago to Mesa for a job. The only issue is that we have no clue as to when the job is going to start. So we came to the American Executive Inn because of the low rates and the kitchenette was a plus. I was a little worried the fist day of our stay, but it didn't take long before I got comfortable. We basically moved in. The mini refridegertor held all of our food. The stove works, I cooked every day as if I was at home. The bathroom is small and there is a shower and no tub, but I think I like that better. It's doable. There is cable with good channels. I was able to catch up on love and hip hop. Lol. The cleaning staff comes daily-ish. They work fast and our very polite. The pool was a little dirty, but we got in after another family got out. The next day it was cleaner and we got in first. With the heat, the pol is awesome. The lady in the front office is nice and smiles and holds conversation if you're interested. We have to be here another week and I was able to book the same room with no issues. I wasn't able to find another motel with the same amenities for the price. This motel was a great choice.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 times in July, and every time it was quiet, clean and nice. No bugs, no neighbors-so, it is a good place to stay in hot Arizona summer.

Short stay and nothing special. Felt the need to check on my vehicle often because of the location. Bathroom was very outdated and older

I stayed at this hotel because I was going to a concert a bit of distance away from home and didn't want to drive back. I did ask for a late check out and the hotel bluntly informed me that they don't do that. If the rooms are not booked the next day, it is usually ok with most hotels that you check out at 1PM even if checkout is 11AM . While the room was clean I did find a two bugs carcasses laying around that made me think that the room is cleaned only when used. Since it was a cheap motel I was expecting much. I did opt for the Jacuzzi suite just because. The Jacuzzi worked well but the motor was awfully loud and the decor was dated. Overall I got what I paid for. I would recommend if I could not find another cheap motel in the area.
