“friendliest place to stay in phoenix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have here several times now and by far the best staff and friendliest people work here. This is not a four star hotel but for a place close to the airport it works very nicely. the rooms are very clean and the courtyard is very nice. I will always come back because i always feel so welcomed

Normally La Quinta hotels are very nice, this was old and dirty. I would not recommend this hotel. The price was low but the accommodations were also poor. Room was dirty and breakfast items were sparse and not much variety.

We have been staying in La Quinta Motels for over ten years and have always had a positive experience. The beds and pillows are top of the line. The staff are courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean. The airport shuttle service where we usually stay saves us time and effort is transporting luggage to and from airport parking lot. We appreciate the variety of breakfast foods and the hours they serve breakfast. We have had several free rooms over the years from the points program.

Returned from Sedona for an early flight back to Milwaukee out of PHX and stayed at this property for a night. This is not a new La Quinta property, room entries are still from the exterior and not central hallways.

Check in was easy and location is great. There breakfast is standard La Quinta fare but that usually is a step above the "continental breakfast" offered by others. If not your choice there is a Denny's right next door

Had the problem of an early flight, the desire to have breakfast and a rental car to return. We were heading down to Alice Cooperstown for dinner and asked Michaela at the desk about this and she said the hotel recommends: take your car back to the Car Rental Center and their shuttle back to Sky Harbor then call them and their shuttle will bring you back to the property then set up a shuttle for the AM. No need to schlep luggage twice... Nice

Room was recently re-done and well decorated. We would stay there again if we need a hotel near Sky Harbor Airport

I have stayed at the LaQuinta/Sky Harbor many times. Shuttle to and from the Phoenix airport is prompt and the drivers very friendly. The various rooms I have stayed in are clean!!! All of the staff I've met are friendly and helpful. The Denny's Restaurant next door is handy. I will always stay at this Hotel when I travel.

The check in was very quick and simple. The rooms are visually pleasing and modern with a nice work station and overall a good amount of space for a standard King room. They also have a shuttle which was great about meeting our schedule.

Now the beds - I've stayed in all quality levels of hotels throughout my career, so I can definitly state the mattress was great for the value. My husband and I slept well. Pillows are more firm which is my preference as I hate to have my head sink between feathers. I dont recall any room noise despite being so close to the 143.

Jen and her staff are amazing, caring people. I appreciate their responsiveness to our needs and I would definilty stay and recommend a stay at this location.
