Just needed a place to spend the night near the capitol and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. Was a little concerned with the location. The hotel is older and looks its age from the outside. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the hotel. The room appeared to be freshly painted. The bathroom fixtures appeared to have been recently renovated. The room was exceptionally clean. From the outside, it almost looks like anyone could access the second floor rooms from the street, but actually to access any of the rooms you have to go into the hotel and pass by the front desk. So, the hotel felt secure. Breakfast was probably below average but there was a little bit there.

Nice motel in downtown Phoenix

Pros: Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great people.
We arrived a day early and got a referral to another motel (with a better rate). We came back the next day and took our room. They held our bags for us so we wouldn't have to run around with them in the car all day. The room was a little cramped, but we managed all of our luggage. We did find the carpet could have been cleaned.

Just what I wanted

Pros: It was clean, well maintained, everything worked. Other guests were quite.
Location: Very close to Talking Stick Arena and restaurants.
Seems to be run by a family. I was greeted and checked in by a very friendly man. The hotel had ample free parking. The room was just what I was looking for: affordable, clean, a feeling of safety and conviently located. I was able to walk to Talking Stick Arena, plenty of restaurants along the way.

Great place to stay

Pros: Everything!
Cons: No in room phone, but who really needs one?
Location: Walking distance to downtown (just a few blocks). Plenty of places to eat. I wasn't visiting for entertainment, but for a convention.
I reserved a room online, paid in full. When I arrived, I gave the staff my print out of the reservation. He asked for my license, no credit card info needed. I got there a few hours before check-in time (arrived at 11am, check-in time is 2pm), but not a word was spoken about that. He gave me the room key and I went in and unpacked my bags. The room was very clean. Fridge, microwave, iron & board, plenty of stainless steel hangers. King size bed, AC that actually got the room very cool. Flat screen TV, plenty of desk and table space. The bathroom was tile floor, tile shower, nice water pressure. Free Wifi.. it was a great room for an excellent price. When leaving, I reserved a cab to pick me up at 5:30 am, the staff told me to just leave the key in the room, and no need to check-out at the counter. The cab was on time (yellow cab service.. to the airport was a flat fee for $15) and I made it to the airport in plenty time. Excellent all around.

Right in downtown Phoenix

Nice staff, very clean room at a fair price. The only complaint was all the fire engines and sirens late at night, but that was no ones fault.

Affordable Accommodations in Downtown PHX

We were pleased with our stay. The staff was courteous and the room was clean. This place is less than half the price of anything else downtown and our room had a balcony. It's a short walk to downtown attractions; we were there for a concert at US Airways and walked to and from the show. The only weak spot was the continental breakfast that was packaged pastries, fruit, yogurt and weak coffee. But with all the scratch you save, just go somewhere good.

Great budget-friendly location in downtown!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, walking distance to downtown, recently renovated rooms, very clean
At first this hotel doesn't look that great - it's a few blocks west of downtown and the area isn't very vibrant and the exterior of the hotel looks a bit dated and tired. However, once inside it gets so much better! The staff is very friendly and attentive. The hallways are a bit bland and sterile but the rooms are great! You can tell they are very well maintained and it looks like they were relatively recently updated. The carpet and bedding is extremely clean and looks new. The air conditioner/heater works very well and having the fridge and microwave in room is an added bonus (I had friends staying in a much more expensive hotel in the heart of downtown and they didn't even have those). The bathoom, while a bit small, is very clean and again looks newer. The shower pressure is just fantastic and you never ran out of hot water. I would highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for a cheap place to stay in downtown. It's only a 10 minute walk right down the street to the heart of downtown where the restaurants, convention center, and more are located.
