We spend a week here. I didn't expect much because of the location but I trusted Marriot. They did not disappoint. The room was clean and up-to-date. It is close to a mall, but I didn't hear the traffic. It was a great place for our family. We had their excellent breakfast. The social hour snacks were actually meals, which... More

On the positive side, the hotel is clean, the rooms are small but comfortable and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The bed is comfortable. Room temps are good, kitchen is a good size. Breakfast is pre-fab, but I am a foodie, so most hotel breakfasts don't impress me. On the not so positive side - the neighborhood is not... More

My stay here was very relaxing during a recent business trip to the Phoenix/Tempe area. The front desk staff (Kristie) were very friendly and efficient and happy to accommodate any request guests made of her. It was a pleasure dealing with her as well as watching how easily she was able to help meet guests requests. The property is very... More

It was great! Super value for the price and great location. Jennifer, at the front desk was amazing! She took care of all our needs during my stay to celebrate my daughter's 9th birthday with her friends for a slumber party.

Into 3rd night of a 8 night day. There has been a change in management since last year when we stayed here. Breakfast service needs help. Not enough workers to keep buffet items full. Had to go to room to get hot water. Current staff unable to handle the flux of the morning crowd. I get the feeling that this... More

Was here for work. Lots of places to eat and a huge mall not far away. Rooms were ok. Mine kind of had an odor of cats.. Maybe because it was on the first floor? Nice pool area to catch some sun. Not too far from airport and major roads. Would stay here again

Price, Service, Accommodations, just wonderful. The staff offers, for no charge, a grocery service. You make out your list and they will get your groceries ( you pay for the groceries, but not for the service of them shopping and stocking your room. Breakfast every morning and Dinner and Social Hour(s) Monday through Thursday

Had a great stay here because of the very large room with a well equipped, brand new kitchen. We had a room away from Priest drive that was extremely quiet. The breakfast was also great with a selection of fresh fruit, hot items, pastries, and even rice porridge. Location is good being right off I-40. There's a CVS next door... More
