We stayed here four nights as part of a spring training mini-vacation. The complementary breakfast was just OK, and just what you would expect from a Residence Inn. It would be nice if its availability could be extended at least a little beyond 9:30 AM on the weekends. Housekeeping was a bit hit or miss; generally good but they sometimes forgot to replace certain items.
My one main complaint is that housekeeping knocked on the door at 8 AM on a Saturday morning, and then entered the 2Bdr suite before quickly retreating when she saw we were there and just waking up (and so were unable to respond quickly enough to the knocking). I happened to mention this at the front desk when I was there for a different reason, and I was smilingly assured that this was standard - housekeeping commences at 8 AM and they therefore routinely knock (and enter) any room at that time (I think the front desk person failed to realize that I was mentioning this as at least a mild criticism).
The biggest plus is the location of this hotel for central Tempe and Mill Ave., but, on the whole, the Mission Palms is a better bet.
