“Best Park and Fly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Love it! Clean and modern. They even take you within 5 miles to eat at a large shopping mall that had amazing food places to choose from. The rooms are good size very modern and comfortable. It is an amazing value for the price. I made my reservation directly with the hotel and got a better price than on a park and fly sight.

This property is barely a hilton product. The smallest room I have seen in quite some time. More like a Motel 6. Two steps from the bed and you are in the bathroom. The open corridors must be brutal in the heat of summer. NIce snacks for HIlton Gold Member thank you. Call for extra towels because this Hampton only gives you 2 bath towels when all others I have stayed give you 3.

Room Tip: Not sure there is a good room stairs everywhere...open corridors and even with the elevator you stil...

Stayed at this hotel for its sleep park fly deal. Price was 35% less than a park and fly. Parking lot is well lit. Hotel is not new but rooms were clean, bed was comfortable.. rooms are very clean. Excellent deal for the money. Would stay here again.

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It met my wife's requirements for a hotel, which says a lot for the hotel :-). If I had any complaints, it would be that the two very comfortable beds seemed a bit big for the size of the room.

After a 5 hour drive from Nevada, I needed to return my rental car and arranged for Hampton Inn’s shuttle to pick me up at the airport. At 10:15, the shuttle was there waiting for me when I got to the pick-up area and the driver was great. As he drove me to the hotel, he informed me that if I wanted to get something to eat or take a little tour around the Tempe area, he’d be glad to take me around. I didn’t take him up on the offer, but it was nice to be treated like a long-time friend.
After a short 10 – 15 minute drive, I arrived at the Hampton Inn Tempe and was quickly checked in. I was up on the 3rd floor toward the back of the hotel and to get to my room, it was a short walk around the outside lanais and over to my room. Security at this hotel does seem a bit wide open as there are external stairs leading up to the rooms and no security gates to limit access. It was raining and I did get a little wet since the access to the rooms are outside. The buildings and the room seem to be a bit dated but maintained. I had reserved a King room and received a double queen. These rooms are a little small so the 2 queen beds made the room feel pretty cramped but since I would only be sleeping there and catching a morning flight out, I didn’t make an issue of it. The room was fairly clean and consisted of 2 queen beds (as I mentioned) a couple of night stands, a work desk with lamp and office chair, a dresser and a flat screen TV on top. The bathroom had the single sink outside the actual bathroom with the tub/shower combo and toilet enclosed. The closet was pretty small, as you slide the door open, you have to turn sideways to get to the back of the closet. The wireless internet was adequate for me to pull up a few websites and check email.
All in all, this was just an OK property, the staff was great, but the property was dated, a little awkward to navigate and room was cramped. They had the shuttle waiting for me early in the morning to get me to the airport which was really nice. I think the staff here are the saving grace and made it an OK place to spend the night before flying out of Phoenix.

Rooms was more on the level of a Motel 6. Two night stay was booked but I checked out after the first night. Breakfast was aweful. No fruit, dry burnt eggs. I grabbed a breakfast to go bag and left. Won't be back..
