Near freeway but difficult to find entrance. Could be so much more but it appears owners/managers do not care. Asked to have wobbly work table repaired. Told it would be or they would get another one. Asked twice. No response. Carpets look as if last cleaned when installed. Good wife. Micro wave and ref in room. Quiet when i was... More

The room was nice and clean...a little noisey in the morning. Staff was not friendly at all, but price was good for basic accommodations. The room did have a fridge and microwave which was nice. They gave us a third floor room with no elevator which was a little inconvenient.

We have two sons attending the University of Arizona so we have to be cost conscious. This hotel fits the bill! We got two third floor rooms, which although on the small side were perfect for four of us, wife, daughter, my mom and myself. Service was outstanding! Breakfast is pretty basic but was ok. We didn't have time to... More

We paid $45 plus tax per night on booking.com. The room had a double (perhaps queen) bed, a microwave, a fridge, no coffee maker, no hair dryer (as advertised), a TV with many channels, good internet, a table and 2 chairs, 2 bedside tables, a dresser with 4 drawers, no clock radio (but one doesn't really need that anymore), and...

I picked this hotel because it was close to the Hospital where my brother is being treated. Unfortunately once I checked into my room I discovered stained linens full of hair. It was a disgusting sight to realize that not much care is taken into maintaining a clean and hygienic hotel room. I asked the clerk for my money back... More

Upon checking in with tired and hungry children at 6 pm we were given a hotel room that was never cleaned nor made up. The staff didn't communicate that to the front desk. When asked for an extra pillow to accommodate my three children I was refused and then when we (4) four paying customers arrived at the alleged FREE... More

This hotel managed to give me the worst hotel experience I ever had and I never even got to actually spend the night in it. I made a reservation for one night only. I specifically searched for a hotel that accepted pets because we had our cat with us on the road. We arrived there at 9.30pm after an entire... More
