Some time ago, my son traveled to Tempe to view an ASU-LSU football game. My son got into some difficulty there, and needed assistance. It was a terrible situation for us. We contacted the management of this hotel and described our situation. They were so very helpful and understanding. They, literally, took care of our son until we could fly... More

We chose this property since my son had to attend orientation at ASU. Easy check in, super clean and comfortable room, and a decent breakfast. This place met my prerequisites: free parking, free breakfast, and free wi-fi. I'm glad we stayed and will return when visiting our Sun Devil!

We chose to stay here one night while touring ASU - because of the great reviews - and we weren't sorry. Just what we needed - clean comfortable quiet rooms for a quick stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was better than most. Within a block of campus so an easy walk if you want. We would stay... More

Service beats out all similar hotels. Free shuttle service provided for ASU, the airport, the Mill Outlet and the huge Tempe shopping center. You can make an appointment and the Holiday Inn staff will take you to one of these locations when you request to go. We checked in very early and even with a sell out the night before... More

the staff was very nice and although no upgrade was possible, I did get a $4 credit which was nice. the breakfast excellent although the plates were small (more for just one item). the place was crowded due to NASCAR race and opening of baseball summer camp. good location and near Scottsdale.

We were in Tempe to tour Arizona State. We literally could not have chosen a hotel much closer. We could have walked to the campus. The hotel is on a small lot, so a parking pass is required to park there. This location includes breakfast, which was typical Holiday Inn fare. On Sunday, I noticed it was pretty busy, and... More
