Attending a conference in Phoenix, I wanted to venture beyond the typical large in city hotel experience. I found Raz Inn to be the perfect combination of a small, personal and comfortable Inn. I stayed in the separate Pasadena Suite. It provided a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and just outside my door a pool and comfortable yard.
Arriving via the Phoenix airport, the 40 minute light rail ride to the nearby station was easy. It was just a 3 minute walk as described. Russ was great about checking me in late, and making sure I knew what I needed to, in order to find them after 10 pm.
Erin and Russ to be helpful, their kids well behaved and friendly. I enjoyed the breakfast delivered to my suite daily. The Kitchen had everything I needed to prepare my dinners, and a nearby shopping plaza with a natural foods store had everything I needed for additional food or drinks, within one block.
Russ and Erin offered helpful suggestions for some additional sight seeing and the place was well kept and clean. Just down the road was the Maricopa, which is more expensive, but in the same neighborhood. I was happy with my stay, and felt it was a good value. I would recommend it for someone or a family looking to get off the beaten path and out of the big hotel scene.
