The people are super friendly and helpful. I have been here before and this last time the renovations looked great. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Wouldn't stay anywhere else there's also a good variety of places surrounding the hotel whether you're looking for a night out or a good hike.

I had visited for a graduation at ASU. I had found the renovations to be tasteful and suited my taste. I also found the nightlife to be great with Mill ave literally walking distance. The only small issue I had with an otherwise great stay was that transportation was a bit difficult to obtain due to it being busy in... More

We always come to this hotel when visiting any concerts at Tempe Town Lake. We have never had any issues and the owners are fabulous! Treated like family every time we stay. The rates are cheap and the area is so convenient with a bank and CVS right next door. Super clean and update so nicely!!

I had a great overall experience over the 4 days I stayed 5/3-5/7. The front desk was friendly and helpful. The room (#205) was freshly renovated a modern décor with a green accent wall. The bathroom was beautifully done with large white subway tile on the wall and dark gray tile with stainless accents. Clear glass shower with rainfall shower... More

Dated, paint peeling, lights not working, ants in bathroom, pictures of pool on website, no pool, rude, loud guests arguing at 3am, reception personnel not answering the phone or being at the desk. Not worth it, stay somewhere else. Terrible! Booked 3 nights, left after 1 night.

I don't have high standards: all I really need is a place that's clean and relatively quiet. This place, unfortunately, just creeped me out. There was something resembling a rodent turd in the bed. The room was dark, dingy, and smelled like decades of cigarette smoke. It was definitely not worth the $57 I paid in December 2014. I've paid... More

Did not expect much being so cheap and close to the campus, but the room was clean, and had a king size bed, fridge, microwave, and a huge closet. The problem with this place is the soundproofing. There is none. Street noise from a bar district, and neighbors, who need to smoke outside their rooms will leave you sleepless in... More

The rooms are small and dingy, shower stall has crud, ceiling has water damage, and refrigerator smells musty. So why would you stay here? The bottom line is that it's a decent place to crash if you're visiting friends at the University or partying on Mill Street. You can't beat the price especially compared to the Marriott or Mission Palms.... More
