Interesting property with separate buildings. We stayed in building near the back of the complex so traffic noise was not a problem. The room had a couch and coffee table, a small fridge, sink, tv in the sitting area while the bedroom was a bit tight with the king size bed and adjoining bathroom and closet. It was clean but...

Front desk is very helpful in getting shuttles to the airport and provide other services. It appears some of them are new and being trained. The furnitures are old and couch is kind of dirty. It is under the same management as the Hampton Inn in the same location. Breakfast is very decent and better than many places. The mattress... More

I chose this hotel because it would keep my car while I traveled. So far so good. I also booked two nights for my return because I needed to wait for a car transport.

We stayed here on a park, stay and fly plan. Room was great with king bed, small frig. and micro. Very comfortable. Nice way to go to the airport. They took us to the airport, kept our car there and they will pick us up when we get in. Great service.

My family always enjoys saying here. The staff are friendly and courteous. The outdoor areas are well maintained and we especially enjoy sitting in the he covered area in the evenings watching TV. The location is convenient and the free shuttle to the airport and Tempe Marketplace makes it easy to save on rental car costs.

Close to airport with free shuttle. Nice layout affords privacy. Convenient to restaurants and shops. They accept pets, which is a big plus for us The only downside is that the room was extremely small.

I absolutely had no complaints regarding this facility. It seems rather new and it was kept really clean at all times. The breakfast area offered a nice variety for any age group. The room was easy to access from the parking area. The parking area was well lit, especially since I was traveling alone and coming in and out often.... More

My only complaint was that the bed was way too high. I had trouble getting onto the bed, but once I did it was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was supposed to start at 6:00 a.m. but because we had to get the 6:00 shuttle it was set up early.
