we were passing through phoenix on a road trip and were looking for an inexpensive, clean place to stay. We found this place on a last minute availability page and were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean with a comfortable king bed. Breakfast was included and was better than expected. This place exceeded our expectations.

We always stay here for Spring Training and for visiting family. It has everything we want and at a reasonable price. The location, the accommodations, the price, and the free breakfast all add up to a very nice stay. In the beginning we tried other places, but this place is the best!

Nice room, nice bed and the overall hotel is clean and neat. The staff were friendly and helpful. Pool small but nice. Only complaint is that every time the compressor on the AC shut off it made a very loud clunking noise.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry about the loud compressor noise. It takes a lot to cool down the Arizona heat and the units take a beating this time of year. I will make sure we get that unit checked out and running perfectly. Thank you for the review. Ian More
