Close to downtown.

Pros: Proximity to downtown Phoenix was nice. Only a 15 minute walk to Suns arena and Hard Rock.
Cons: Friendlier and less paint smell.
Location: The location was close to downtown Phoenix.
I booked this hotel because of its proximity to Talking Stick Arena, and the proximity was probably the only redeeming quality of the hotel. They were still painting our room when we showed up, so our room smelled like fresh paint. We were in town to see the Suns play so fortunately we didn't spend much time in the room but it was disappointing that the room smelled so bad. The employee working the counter wasn't particularly friendly, probably said less than 15 words total for both check-in and check-out. Next time will spend a little extra to go somewhere nicer. If walking to Talking Stick Arena be prepared some of the streets to get there are a little rough.

Dear, value guest I am so sorry to see that you did not enjoy your stay, I felt that I did everything possible to assure that you had a pleasant stay,and I am disheartened to see that I did not meet or for that matter exceed your expectations. My staff and I work diligently to make sure that all of our guests enjoy their stay, and I consistently keep my hotel in the greatest conditions possible. I hope that this experience does not deter you from returning in the future, and I wish you very safe travels. -Sam / Manager

A sketchy neighborhood detracts from feeling safe.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
The owner / operator was very polite and helpful.The room was austere and clean. Servicing of the room was adequate. The neighborhood feels unsafe at night, and to some extent during the day. Not a place for families or business men. It's really a transient hotel.

Manager scammed me

I checked into my room and immediately knew I wanted out. It was dark and smelled like a basement (moldy smell). After going back and forth about it with the manager, he finally assured me that they would return my credit card charge and I left. Surprise, they never returned my charge. I contacted Travel agncy but they said it was up to the hotel to do that. I would not give this hotel buisness again.ABC

Great clean hotel

I was in town visiting some friends. This place was great! Friendly staff, clean rooms, I couldn't have asked for more. The breakfast in the morning was great too. Centrally located to all that I wanted to do. Will definitely be back next time I visit!

clean rooms

I stayed at this hotel with my husband on 4-16-10 for 2 nights, while visiting friends in the area. We were amazed at how clean and comfortable it was for the rate. The staff was also very helpful. We were able to use the internet without a problem also. My husband and I also loved the location, very close to restaurants. We would stay again when back to the area.
