I booked this room because there was a sporting event in Phoenix which caused there to be nothing else available. Boy, was I sorry! I should've come the next day, when the event was over and I could've chosen another hotel. By the way, they term it a hotel, but it's actually a cheesy motel!
I checked in and discovered that my room was filthy--the carpet was so gross I wouldn't take my socks off and I wrote my name in the dust on the table! Get this straight--my home is not so clean, as I have 4 dogs and 6 cats, and I was disgusted by this motel!
There was no welcoming literature of any kind (what to do and where to eat in Phoenix, welcome to our hotel, etc), no Internet service, no remote for the TV, and no speakers in the TV! There was an ironing board, but no iron. I had to visit the office twice to obtain one.
Speaking of the office, the three young girls I encountered there were all wearing hooded sweatshirts (one of which was visibly dirty with holes in it)--very unprofessional! To top off my stay, my card was charged twice for one night!
I realize that the $50 per night (I only stayed one night--I got the heck out of there) was dirt cheap for Phoenix, but they could give this place a little more effort and improve it dramatically.
