4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

came in to meet our granddaughter to explorer everything between here and Grand Canyon. Shuttle was great and efficient. Front desk was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Room was large enough. All equipment was in good shape and operating. Had a good night sleep and was rested to start exploring. Restaurants were not very far.

We stayed here for one night for a transit stopover through Phoenix. The room was fantastic, including the shower with excellent water pressure, choice of soft or firm pillows, and ultra comfortable beds. The complimentary airport transfers were efficient. The breakfast offered a delicious selection of food, and I was particularly fascinated by the automatic pancake machine. In summary, would... More

I stayed here because I had a flight at 0-dark-30 the next morning. While I didn't get to enjoy too much of the room as I was leaving early in the morning, I found the hotel and room clean and comfortable. I'll probably stay here again when I have an early flight out of Phoenix.

This hotel was so welcoming and comfortable but it was the people that made this such a positive experience. My friend and I arrived early evening and were collected by the shuttle. The volunteer service at the airport is superb and they rang through for us to get directions for the pickup point. Shuttle and check-in were friendly and efficient.... More

Very nice property with an exceptionally friendly staff - and Susie was the best! This is a great property if you are flying, but not very much in the area in terms of restaurants. Check Trip Advisor for the Thai restaurant on Broadway.

The room was fine, the staff was helpful and nice, the breakfast was good. The only problem was that if you're in an end room, the wifi won't reach you. We had to go sit in the lobby to use it. But it's very close to the airport and the shuttle service was prompt.

Stayed here one night and had a very good experience. My daughter and I checked in late. The front desk staff was helpful and quickly changed the King bed to two Queens with no hesitation. The room was clean, which is probably the most important aspect of any hotel room for me. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Free breakfast... More

We stayed here for only one night, but found the hotel to be fine for our purposes. The staff were friendly and welcoming, room was clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was included in the (very reasonable) price. This was a fairly limited help yourself affair but OK. I would recommend this if you are en route to or from the... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a recent business trip to the area. This property definitely caters to primarily business clientele. The staff were all very friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean. I had no problems connecting to the Internet with all our devices. The speed is adequate for email and most web browsing. The... More
