You'll find us serendipitously situated across the street from Sun Devil central - the famed Arizona State University. We are also located within walking distance to all of the bustling Mill Avenue stops and shops, as well as the Tempe Town Lake action. You can take in "A" Mountain from your campus view room - after all, why not observe perfection from every angle. The pool scene will add just the chill you're in town for! Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate - get ready to be inspired.

Great hotel. Friendly staff, pet friendly and ideal location to ASU. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel is walking distance to ASU and Mill St. Lots of great restaurants near by. I have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed my experience. Only negative that I have is the AC unit. It is a bit noisey when trying to sleep at night. This is a renovated older hotel so each room is fitted with its own separate AC

Stumbled across the Graduate Tempe last minute in search of a clean, pet-friendly stay. The staff was very friendly and the room was great. Loved the option of adding a Bark Box to the room for our dog. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were informed that the Bark Boxes were unavailable due to a bad shipment that included expired treats. However, the front desk gave us the toys that were included in the box at no extra charge! We were on the first floor which happened to have a sliding door with quick access to the pet area - by far one of the nicest ones we've stayed at. Their COVID regulations with masks and social distancing were standard and well executed. Will definitely book again.

We are so glad you found our hotel! We love to pamper furry family members, and I am so sorry we were out of good bark boxes. However, I am so glad your dog got to enjoy the toys! Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to seeing you again!

My boyfriend and I had such an amazing trip for New Years. Our room was so cute! The views from our balcony were beautiful, we saw the sunset and the fireworks at midnight on NYE. Megan gave the best check-in experience, and I would 10/10 recommend this property!
