I slept like a baby the bed was very , very nice. The shower was great. The food was available to buy was nice. Breakfast I am sure would have been nice if I had gotten up earlier to eat it. The only thing I did not like was no pay tv I hate commercials. but other then that it... More

Got stuck overnight while flying through Phoenix. This hotel is a 7 minute drive from airport and has a free shuttle. The room is clean and bed was super comfortable! I was not able to use the pool, but it looks small but nice. There aren't any restaurants or bars within walking distance, but if you plan to just order... More

It was a lackluster grungy hotel. The Super 8 Motel I stayed at under the Wyndham name in MO was much nicer which I found surprising.

To Whom It May Concern: We are so glad that you sent this email. We were totally embarrassed to have my family stay in this motel, yes a motel and not a hotel. When we pulled in to check in we noticed that many of the doors to the rooms where open and it turns out that the carpets were... More

Let's just say that it isn't the Taj Mahal but budgetarily friendly. The room was clean and had everything you needed for a short stay (but you wouldn't want to live there). The breakfast was ample---cereals, waffles, muffins, juice, coffee----but if you got down to the breakfast room after 8 am, supplies were almost out. However, they were gratiously replaced... More
