Awkward

As a double mastectomy (breast cancer) patient, I was asked by hotel staff to not swim in the pool or jacuzzi. It was degrading and humiliating. I’m not contagious nor am I one to expose myself in public.

Rooms are nice. Kitchen with the full size frig was wonderful to have. Very, very close to shopping and awesome restaurants. Staff was excellent. Always answered any questions we had with a smile. We had lots of questions too as this was our first trip to Tempe.

Nice close to everything

This hotel was very nice. The thing I liked most was that it was close to everything. We started to rent a car but changed our minds and I'm glad we did because we were able to walk to every place we needed to go. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast had a variety of things to choose from. I loved the rooftop pool as well. I would recommend this hotel!

Better than I imagined

Pros: Cleanliness, amenities, location
Location: The hotel was located near the ASU Tempe Campus; within walking distance to everything, including Mill Ave, with many fine restaurants and shops
The Residence Inn in Tempe was absolutely fabulous! Better than I imagined! The room was very spacious and had every amenity that anyone would need. Not only that, everything was clean and comfortable. The location was awesome, too- I wanted to be near ASU, as I was visiting my boys-couldn't be closer. Walking distance to everything! Would definately stay there again.

Nice hotel adjacent to ASU and football stadium

Pros: Staff is great. Hotel is very clean and comfortable.
Cons: Add more variety to breakfast. Would be nice if evening reception happened every night not just Mon, Tues, Wed.
Location: Right next to ASU and football stadium. Walking distance to Mill Ave. and shopping and dining.
I've stayed here twice now and it's great. Only small negative is this last time the breakfast was the exact two days in a row. A little more variety would be nice. Location is awesome.
