After having attended a seminar in Phoenix that ran late into the evening, my daughter and I needed a room for the night before making the 4 hour drive home.

Not much to say but Staff let us in early as we were departing at 3.00 am. Everything we needed in room and a PC and printer in reception to print boarding passes. Good breakfast on offer which we enjoyed on arrival and departure. Friendly staff.

I had an early flight to catch the next morning, so I chose this HJ hotel, close to the PHX airport and priced at a fairly reasonable rate. But the hotel was not at all what I expected. It was a disaster! First, at check in, I was asked if I wanted to pay an extra $5/day for a Non-Smoking... More

Door had to be shoved several times to open. Not an electronic problem. Two electrical outlets were completely dead, one by the door, the other where the hairdryer and refrigerator were. Bathtub needed some Magic Eraser. Air conditioner was extremely loud! It would intermittently shut off then restart with a different annoying sound. Toilet stopped flushing. Awful zombie decorations in... More

Recently, we took a trip to the southwest and Phoenix airport was our port of entry and exit. The night before we flew home we stayed at Howard Johnson downtown. (airport area) The room did not have any towels, or toilet paper. We had to ask for these items. The walls had dirty spots on them. The bathroom door had... More

Cannot be more central to everything Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Scottsdale has to offer. Not to mention easy access to PHX airport with complimentary shuttle service. An original Howard Johnsons with everything udated as possible. Traditional style A/C (works well), larger than average room size with walk in closets. Plenty of parking (free), pool, spa, free wifi and very decent continental... More
