In June I stayed at the Inn; my first visit in 2 years -and how nice was it to be recognized and welcomed!
The rooms are huge and comfortable; the wireless internet works flawlesslt, and how nice to see the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Arizona Republic in sufficient quantities in the lobby every day.
Not to be missed is the 2nd floor lounge, with complimentary coffee, soda, juices, and fruit. It's open 24/7 and was a perfect place to begin my day since the wireless worked well there. Off the lounge is an outdoor patio, altho in the June heat I gave it a miss. But for other times of the year, it'd be lovely.
Guests of the hotel can use the school pool, and can easily walk-run on the athletic grounds if they so desire. There's a pub on campus for lunch or dinner, and across the street are several restaurants.
The price is right; the ambiance is friendly yet very professional. Instead of staying in a cheap chain hotel- stay here; you'll be glad you did.
