I was in town for a night and looking for a good value with easy access to downtown Phoenix for a baseball game. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the super convenient light rail which made going to the game a cinch. The hotel was fairly typical for a holiday inn express. I was happy for the bigger... More

Good internet connection. Two very good restaurants within easy walking distance (across the parking lot) and a mall across the street in the other direction. I would... More

Our party of four stayed one night here to attend the Utah vs. ASU game at Sun Devil Stadium. It was very affordable and in a prime location. We used the free shuttle from the airport then took a short walk from the hotel to the Tempe train/metro. That took us directly to the stadium and to Mill Avenue. If... More

We stayed here several nights in March with another couple and had a pleasant stay at a typical HIE. Location very good and prices very competitive. Room comfortable as was bed and it was quiet; room and bathroom spotless. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast average. Would stay again.

We stayed at 3 HIE hotels while on a 2 week "snow bird" vacation around AZ and NM and while this is an OK hotel I'd stay between 2-3 stars at best.

Had a great five day stay here the week of Super Bowl. Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. The location was great, lots around. Really liked the free shuttle, they do airport pick-up/drop off as well they'll take you anywhere within the area including Arizona Mills (great mall) and the Tempe Market Place among others.
