3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I was on a budget for this trip but I still didn't want to stay in a bad or unsafe place. My GPS originally took my to the wrong end of Van Buren. This hotel is convenient to downtown Phoenix which is what I needed for this trip. Nothing special but the people took pride in their work and were very friendly, the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable

I chose this hotel because I had a last minute trip for business, making my airfare extremely expensive. I read reviews that the hotel was recently renovated, and it was very close to where I needed to be so I decided to give it a shot.

Here are the Pro's:
-the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly
-the hotel was a ten minute walk to the biomedical campus were I needed to be
-relatively quiet at night as far as other guests, street traffic
-substantially less expensive than surrounding hotels

Cons:
-I found rosary beads left under the desk in the room from the previous guest. This leads me to believe the cleaning staff did not even get close to the area with the vacuum (they were very easy to spot)
-the air conditioning unit just blew into the curtains, and it took a very long time to get the room cool. (it was also VERY loud)
-the linens and towels were very old. they had been chemically processed to the point of being hard and scratchy


All in all, for the price I was willing to deal with these issues for such a last minute trip..and for only one night. The friendly and helpful staff was nice. I would probably not stay there again however, and I feel the extra money at another hotel would be well worth knowing the room was clean, the air conditioning was quiet and worked well, and my linens/towels were somewhat comfortable to use.

Had a great time at the super 8 hotel this past weekend.
For a small fee, I received a clean comfortable room, free breakfast and very good service. The hotel is close to the convention centre and across the street from a corner store for incidentals like water and fruit...
The room had a fridge, free outgoing calls and internet access...
Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Book at the hotel directly. Dont go through a search site.

Off to Phoenix last month for a conference...looking at the recommended hotel was gonna set me back 129 a night. I took a shot at the Super 8 for less than 70 per night. Good call! The Super 8 is a 10 minute walk to the center of Phoenix downtown, a straight shot up Van Buren. A nice walk too (I did it 8 times during the week). ASU, a couple high rises and the Children's Museum broke the walk up. Reference the Super 8; a quiet setting, nice breakfast included - with bonus hard boiled eggs a staple add on from the owner (thanks boss, the cereal, yogurt, eggs and good coffee made for a good start each day. I had a standard room (standard all the way around) Simple and efficient. If your going for work or don't mind not have all the pomp and circumstance of one of the big boy properties, save some cash and check out the Super 8 downtown Phoenix
