I stayed at this hotel on a business trip. The price is cheap which is $69 and the rooms were extremely quiet. The only problems I had was that the heater wasn't working. It was just blowing air. Also when I woke up, my skin felt very itchy. I would bring some mite spray if I came here. The person at the desk were extremely nice though. But there is saying that you pay for what you get.

I stayed at the Thunderbird for a conference in January. The rooms are nicely appointed--very nice beds and linens, and the rest of the room is quite comfortable. I found the rooms to be very quiet as well (a real pet peeve of mine with a lot of hotels)--you could not hear televisions, etc., from the room next to yours.

One caveat: if you do not have a car (I did not for this trip), the only place to purchase anything nearby is a gas station that off campus and requires crossing two busy phoenix streets.

I can't comment on value, as I was not paying for the room, and did not see the bill. In terms of ease of access to the campus and conference sites, well, it can't be beat. It's close enough to their conference facilities that you could leave between sessions to use the bathroom in your own room and return in plenty of time.

On the second floor of the main building, there is a very nice lounge with plenty of breakfast foods, plus good coffee and a nice tea selection.

I generally do not enjoy staying in on-campus facilities, but this was the exception to the rule.

  • Liked — Quiet rooms
  • Disliked — Lack of things to do within walking distance.
