Even though the first floor is designated "no smoking" we had to cancel our second night because I was having difficulty breathing. My bathroom was disgusting. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in many moons and the shower/tub was so sticky that I put a towel on the floor of the tub to take my shower. The second room... More

We chose this hotel for one night because it was dog friendly - and they do not have a weight limit or charge add'l fees for dogs. Going into it we knew it was not going to be a luxury experience, more of a cheap place to stay for one night. We were extremely happy - the front desk was... More

Wow, this room reminds me of the worst dorm room I ever had in college. On the plus side, the price is right, in what is a very pricey (overpriced) town. And the room is clean. But to say it has minimal amenities is an understatement: it's like a stripped car. No hair dryer, no clock, no coffee maker. Don't... More

I have been staying here for trips for about 12 years. In the last years things have taken a marked decline. This last trip was the worst. The first room we got was so smelly- an overwhelming pine-sol cleaning product smell, that even an hour of open window could not remove it. The second room was marginally better. The smell... More

I spent a few nights at this hotel with a friend recently, and we chose this location specifically because of the cheap rate for the rooms. The first time you start looking around, you start understanding exactly WHY it's the cheapest price around! The room was very no-frills... shower, tub, beds, etc. There was no dresser available, and no minifridge... More

The last time we stayed here, 2 yrs ago, I reviewed that it was a good place for 1 night but we stayed again and it's terrible! Must be new management and downgraded facilities; no carpeting (due to pets), no toilet seat cover (come on, really!), no extra pillow, blanket, very cheapest bedspread, no hairdryer, tiniest sliver of soap for...

Kim, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We strive to deliver a great guest experience, but it sounds as though we did not perform to our usual standards in this case. We are happy to be a pet friendly hotel and our award winning Phoenix redesign does feature wood-effect flooring, but not due our furry guests.... More

We are a married couple around 70 and we stayed one night. The motel is refurbished and OK for one or two nights. Would have liked a better wardrobe and drawer. Clean. Enough space for two. Wifi should be free. $4.99 for a couple of hours in the evening and half an hour in the morning is just too much.... More

I made reservations for a non smoking room as I have allergies and was under doctor care for paralyzed vocal chords. My reservations were made at least a month in advance. When I arrived I was told my reservation was NOT for a non smoking room and that's all they had available. I explained my situation regarding my health but... More

This was our first time staying in this chain, we didn't know what to expect. Room was clean on entry, however, other than making the bed, it was not cleaned during our stay. The bathtub didn't drain, the toilet splashes you when you flush, the towels were taken and notl replaced (only 2 towels on the second morning). They do... More
