Although, this hotel has been renovated; one should keep in mind it was built in the early 80's and reflects as such. The taps are noisy and the air conditioning units are not that efficient on the top floor facing the pool. You may find the top floor rooms facing the pool hot and stuffy during the night even with the air conditioner running.
Location is in an industrial area, next door to the Mesa police station. Garbage bin is located at the side of the pool area and pick up was @ 6:00am some days. Walmart superstore, Fry's grocery and restaurants nearby.
Rooms are extremely clean, but room carpets are dirty and long overdue for a shampooing. Beds are extremely comfortable. TV's are older style, not flat screen. Wifi was good.
Pool tiles (southwestern ones, where the water level mets the tile) need to be scrubbed down. The brown goo is not worn tile or part of the colour of the tile , it is embedded greasy goo that can be scratched off with your finger nail. Pool requires a outdoor clock, so guests know what time it is and don't stay past closing time.
Service is super when the Manager or Assistant Manager is there, but when the Managers are on days off things seem to fall apart. One dark haired woman at the front desk was complaining in front of 50 hotel guests @ 9:10pm who were waiting for the evening snacks to be put out that how things always happen and how busy she was. (there was another person working with her that night , the phone was not ringing, there was no line up of guests checking in, so it really looked like she lost track of time and was making excuses for why she was late) One evening when she served cookies, I asked her if she was going to have milk available and she said, "we don't do that anymore" That was odd thing to say, as just a few days earlier milk was served with the cookies and promoted as "Milk & Cookies" snack night. Another evening @6:30pm, I asked what the evening snack was going to be and she said "who knows, I have see what is in the cupboards" (she seemed totally annoyed that I asked)
When the hotel was busy on Dr. Martin Luther King weekend. We felt we were staying at a completely different hotel. It was obvious with staffing cut backs in the Arizona economy, that a minimal amount of staff here is not equipped to handle an influx of guests. We had to ask to have our room cleaned at 2:00pm and were assured by the front desk man it would be done by 3:00pm. When returned at 3:40pm it was still not cleaned and we had to ask again before the maids went home.
With the influx of people on the long weekend the breakfast buffet was running out of everything fast. People were standing waiting for utensils, juice, etc. Staff was trying hard to keep up, but needed extra hands.
Everyday the hot items for breakfast included scrambled eggs and fried potatoes (this never changes) The one daily rotating hot dish consists of: sausage patties or biscuits & gravy or tortilla shells or bacon. If you are on a restricted diet there is really not a lot of options here.
Overall, our stay was excellent when the managers were there, but was lacking when they were not. You may want to avoid this place on long weekends, due to inefficient staffing levels when the hotel is full.
