Very nice motel for the price! Managed by nice family. Clean and quiet for the most part. Bed was comfortable which I hardly find in any motel! I would highly recommend it and I would definitely stay here again!

Very good location, walk to everything, on major road with bus stop - steps away, within a few short blocks to the lite rail. Room was clean and comfortable. Just around the corner from the Crescent Ballroom restaurant/bar - Owners very accommodating. Will definitely stay again.

We booked this place for the price, but couldn't have been more pleased. It's not fancy, but the room was very clean, plenty of room and the bathroom as others said, was spotless. There was a refrigerator in the room (bigger than most hotel refrigerators) that kept our drinks nice and cold. AC was a little noisy, but no more so than a white noise machine - conducive to sleeping. :-) This hotel is just a couple minutes at most from downtown. Breakfast was coffee, juice, pastries and fresh fruit like bananas and apples. The beds were very clean and the mattress, while not like mine at home, was actually much more comfortable than the one at the 4 star resort we stayed at the night before in Palm Springs. Family run - they were very nice and informative. Would definitely stay here again.

Although there is no way this hotel compares to others costing much more it was perfectly fine and a great price for downtown Phoenix. We went to the Arizona State Fair nearby, came back late and left early for the Airport (about 10-15 minutes away on a Sunday morning) so it was perfect. As another reviewer said - it was spotless. Iʻve never seen a cleaner bathroom and the rest of the room was the same. Breakfast was juice, coffee and bagged pastries. Family run, and the gentleman gave us great directions to the airport and where to fill our rental car on the way. TV, microwave, fridge and a huge closet. AC unit was noisy and didnʻt have much of a low or a thermostat we could see.
