“Very nice property - has never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

I have been staying at this property 2-3 times per year for the last 3 years while my son attended graduate school at ASU. We stayed there again last week when we were there for graduation. It's a great place. Comfortable, clean, room, pleasant staff, and nice exterior spaces. Always enough parking. VERY conveniently located to ASU, Scottsdale, Phoenix, and highways. Breakfast seating is both indoors and on a wonderful covered patio with tables, couches, and tvs. I, too, have used the shuttle, although usually we rent a car. It worked exactly as described by others. Located near Papago Park. The fitness room is tiny. This is a very nice place, and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I have stayed all over the property and don't discern a location advantage.

I stayed here while attending MLB spring training. I did not know the area and when I read they provided free shuttle service to and from airport AS WELL AS WITHIN 5MILES in surrounding area I took a gamble and booked a room and did not rent a car. Yes they truely took me anywhere within 5 miles and picked me up! Even better, this service runs 24 hours! Every shuttle driver was very nice and gave suggestions on places to eat, see, and party! The front desk was friendly and very helpful in every request and even printed bus maps for us. Breakfast was fabulous and changed daily. We loved eating outside under the covered breakfast area. The ladies that worked the breakfast area were very nice and always made sure there was variety of food no matter what time we came down for breakfast.(within breakfast hours, of course). The grounds were very clean. I cant wait to go back next year. I will deffinately be staying here again except this time I will stay for a week! Great experience! Only bad is no one else can compare! :-)

We were here for three nights; the room was clean and the breakfast tasty. My only complaint is the noise from the room above us - sounded like they were bowling up there every morning at six AM. We enjoyed the pools and the hot tub. Located near plenty of restaurants.

Room Tip: choose a high floor, not the ground floor.

drsharonleed,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our pools and hot tub. I would like to apologize for the noisy guest upstairs, and you are right that requesting a upper floor room is the best way to avoid this. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thank you again.

This is the first "outdoor entrance" hotel I've stayed in for a very long time and it was comfortable for the most part, despite the run down appearance. Light sleepers beware, though, you can hear people coming home at all hours outside. The sounds must carry through the courtyards. It was clean and the bed was comfortable, though the room is very small - we had trouble figuring out where to put the suitcases. You pretty much are forced to use the dressers. Breakfast was fine, though the hot food is some variety of omelets everyday. I was hoping for bacon but over 5 days it never came.

Room Tip: The top floor would be ideal - though we tried to get this and were denied.

Mrmotoman, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you again in the future and you have enough time to enjoy our putting green and pools.

My daughter and I recently stayed for five days while she was participating in a workshop at nearby ASU. Our rooms were comfortable, the staff was helpful and the hotel is close to shopping centres and restaurants. We used the complimentary shuttle service daily, and found the drivers to be courteous and very helpful. Our stay in the area was significantly enriched because we didn't have to worry about transportation.

The complimentary breakfast in a very pleasant setting was a nice way to begin each day.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street get a lot of street noises. Next time, I'd request a room on the other...
