The hotel is in a great location next to ASU. Unfortunately, the rooms are run down and haven't been updated in years; many, many years. It feels unclean. The worst part though is how unfriendly the staff is. Upon arrival, instead of a welcome all the girl at the front desk said was "what's your last name?" I felt like we were bothering her by being there. We were unable to get into the pool area. When we asked another girl at the front desk about using the pool she just told us she wasn't sure if the pool was open. She also wasn't sure where the fire exit was either. Not too much help.
