All of the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The facility is always ultra clean (retired nurse requirement), with pleasant rooms and common spaces. The breakfast offers a variety of choices each morning, coffee is available in the lobby 24/7. The free shuttle within a 5 mile radius is genius. Happy hour, or dinner with drinks are more relaxing when... More

The location of the hotel is good. The rooms are spacious and clean. I had a room with a kitchen with a big refrigerator and some utensils to cook. The breakfast is good. The hotel provides shuttle service for a 5 mile radius. The hotel has ample parking space. Overall a very good experience staying here.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights at the end of January when there for a women's b-ball trip (vs. ASU). Great beds, very clean, great breakfast, amazing free shuttle within 5-mile radius, including the airport. This was key for me because I didn't rent a car. Close to Mill Avenue and campus. Shout out to Lisa at the... More

I ran across Red Lion Inn on my first trip out to Tempe 3 years ago. It is clean, not over crowded or overpriced. I highly recommend you check it out when looking for a nice place to stay. Shuttle service anywhere within a 5 mile radius is a great convenience. If you do not require a high priced place... More

We had a suite with a kitchenette. The room was adequate, a little shabby in spots, but clean, with a nice sitting/leaving area. The kitchenette included a full fridge, microwave and range top. But there were virtually no cooking utensils, only a plastic spoon and spatula. Not even a bottle opener, called the front desk and they said to come... More

Thank you for your review. I apologize that the suite did not live up to your expectations. While not an extended stay hotel, we do like to accommodate our guests that want to have cooking options open. There should have been these items available for your use and I am following up with housekeeping to ensure that such oversight never... More

I stayed just one night at this hotel. My room was very clean and comfortable. I arrived early and they accommodated my request for early check in. There was a good selection of breakfast items, the staff was very friendly and helpful. One feature that I liked a lot was free shuttle service to places within 5 miles, and there... More

The only problem I had with this hotel was where the pool was located. In the middle of complex so you got very little sun this time of year. Building overshadowed the pool. Seating was very limited by the pool as well, mainly because they were either installing or/or fixing the hot tub. Water was very warm. Everything was clean,... More

Thank you for your recent review. It is always great to get constructive feedback. We are currently installing a hot tub, which did hinder patio space. I am hopeful you will stay with us in the future so that you can utilize that new amenity. More

We arrived late in the evening and didn't notice that the room was located on the busy N Scottsdale Road, the traffic was quite noisy. In the morning we requested to move rooms and they put us far away from the road as possible and it was perfect! It's the best value in Tempe/Scottsdale area and the breakfast offered lots... More
