I read the reviews on line about this property and knew it was probably outdated and it could not be all that bad, and the rate was good ( 99.00 ), and it was centrally located in Tempe, so I booked a room.
I was in town to do a biochemistry lecture at ASU and the hotel is located right across the street. Perfect!
I arrived very late and the check in was seemless. Very nice desk clerk. Got to the room and it was ok. Clean and all around fine. The next day I approached the front desk and saw an older, heavy set woman with a really bad case of pink eye and I felt sorry for her ( like: " bless her heart" ).... until she opened her mouth. I asked for a late check out because my lecture was going to last to 12:30pm the next day. She responded " No late check outs! The hotel is too busy!" ... and then walked away.
Next morning I put the do not disturb hanger on my door, went to my lecture, came back about 12:30 and grabbed my luggage out of my room and caught the shuttle to the airport.
She was at the front desk and did not notice me as I left as she was arguing with a guest about internet access.
I did not see any maids on my floor as I was leaving so I guess that the hotel was not THAT busy that they could not allowed me to checkout late.
Hotel was fine, but this lady needs to find another job where she does not have to deal with the public.
