A BAD choice for a motel in Phoenix if your plans include sleep. I blundered into it by reserving on line WITHOUT READING THE REVIEWS... and trying to save a few bucks- bad mistake. The place is just north of the west end of the Sky Harbor Airport and about 100 feet from an Amtrak/ freight railroad crossing, in an industrial area.
A "one-on-one" girlie place is across the street and there is an "adult toy store" nearby. Classy neighborhood. Strange locals milling about in the parking lot.
The roar of the planes and the ringing of the railroad crossing penetrates the rooms like there are no walls and the trains themselves always blow their whistles- about a hundred times- as they approach the crossing - even in the middle of the night. The freight trains are about a hundred cars long. There are absolutely no amenities here, but the price is still pretty high- about fifty bucks- You can go to the La Quinta and live in absolute luxury for another twenty bucks- it WILL be worth it. The bedspreads are so garishly colored with the Motel 6 logo that the decor alone will keep you awake. Little tiny towels in a little tiny bathroom. No chairs to sit in to watch TV.
The staff is nice, though and they have free (!) coffee in the office in the morning. And- they have an all-night security to guard to keep the derelicts from stealing the stuff out of your car. There IS a pool. Do not go here. Repeat- DO NOT GO HERE.
