The only reason I picked this motel was for the convenience of having the Park n Fly just a few miles from the airport.
Frat, the parn n ride is not "free", your room rate is about $20 more than without it. But still, it saves money compared to a paid parking lot.
The park and fly parking is out back behind the motel. it's not secured or protected in any way. basically you are just parking in the street. And this is not the best neighborhood in Phoenix. I was concerned for the safety of my car, but there were no problems.
The shuttle service to/from the airport was prompt and professional.
The parking parking lot of the motel itself is very poorly designed. There is only one entrance, and there is no easy way to exit the place. You have to go to the end of the parking row and hope there is an empty space so you can turn around.
The room itself was just OK. It was a very strange room, almost like they knocked down the wall between two small rooms to try to make one large room. It doesn't work. The small room has a very awkward couch, glass table refrig and microwave. The rooms were painted a weird sort of orange/tan/olive color, Painted over the rough stucco walls, it was ugggggg-ly.
The front desk clerk was very helpful answering questions for me.
