“Great budget motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

I highly recommend this place if you just need a clean, comfortable, inexpensive place to stay for a few nights. The pros: The motel and room were clean, bed was very comfortable, location was within easy walking distance to the downtown area I wanted to go to, free parking in motel lot was close to entrance, room has a microwave and fridge and free wifi, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The cons: the lobby is tiny - just a place to stand and register. There is no area inside or out to sit down or tables to eat a meal - you have to do everything in your room. The continental breakfast includes not very fresh fruit, wrapped pastries, and coffee - no tea options. Also, the bathroom is very small with no racks to hang towels on, and the plug for a blow dryer is far from the mirror. These downsides were not that big a deal to me but noticeable enough not to give an excellent rating.

After spending a week at an Omni, the prospect of a week at a 2 star walk-up was less than uplifting, and I had a nasty headcold, and a wicked headache from flying with stuffed sinuses. So I came to this place with less than a positive attitude. When I left, I decided I would happily stay again. It was immaculately clean, the staff and manager were always amazingly pleasant and accommodating, and never condescending or reactive to my bad humour. They were helpful, caring, and responsive. I appreciated how immaculate everything was, and also liked the opening windows. Internet supported my 3 computers happily at no charge, whereas the previous high end hotel allowed one connection and charged daily. And the walk to the convention centre is a pleasant safe 10 minute stroll. I'm glad to have stayed there and would do so again.

Room Tip: Upstairs on East side don't have afternoon sun.

Nice little jewel in downtown Phoenix! Inexpensive yet very high level accommodations. Friendly and accommodating staff, comfortable beds, clean, bright, and convenient. I highly recommend this nice little lodge!

Room Tip: One caveat, request room off the main drag, a little noisy up there.

Great location, just a few blocks out of the center of downtown Phoenix. Very clean, and the staff was extremely nice & helpful! For the price of the room, I was extremely happy with everything. Rooms include a mini fridge, microwave, desk, tv, and vanity.

The hotel was very nice for the price. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the fridge and microwave were a bonus. The wifi was good, too. We were within walking distance of everything, including a Suns game (it took us 15 to 20 minutes to walk there) and, overall, we are pleased with our visit.

ideal location at downtown phoenix, no fancy equipment but very comfortable stay. Staff is friendly and room are clean. I stayed four nights for an academic conference in convention center. The breakfast is kind of cheap but considering the price and its location and well maintained room, you cannot ask for more. Strongly recommend and will definitely stay next time visit downtown phoenix.
