Stayed one night at Hotel 502 and was pleased to see the many improvements happening around the hotel. My room was updated and stylized with a trendy look, great bedding and nice amenities. Dorothy was friendly at check in and even the GM, Andrew took time to tell me about the ongoing plans for the hotel. My room had concrete...

In Scottsdale for Spring Training, and all of the other chain hotels were booked and/or exorbitantly priced. Decided to give Hotel 502 a shot. Overall, the rooms are serviceable. Beds are comfortable, except that a regular sheet takes the place of a proper fitted sheet. Seems to be a shortage of electrical outlets. AC was effective but got a little...

This hotel was perfect for my family! We enjoyed the beautiful pool and took the light rail to the children's museum downtown. We had an updated room and it was extremely clean and had all the amenities needed. The staff was delightful too. This is my second time visiting Hotel 502 and we will be back again!

I recent had the pleasure of trying out a new hotel, this one. After reading the reviews I was a little concerned. In my life ive learned the good out weighs the bad, so I booked. The rooms were what you would expect from a three star hotel. However the staff was more accommodating than other hotels I've been at....

I am in a state of shock over this hotel. I was in tears within minutes of arriving and seeing the state of our disgusting room. We had no lights which is probably the only way I could handle sleeping here. The room is so dirty we had to go buy disinfectant wipes to touch anything. Falling apart, dirty, uncomfortable...

Overall, we were pleased with this older hotel. The pluses were a tremendously friendly staff that made us feel very welcome, an affordable, well located hotel, an adequate continental breakfast, and a clean facility. Also, the pool area was very nice and the wifi signal was strong throughout the hotel. Some negatives: the carpeting needed replacing, or at the very...
