helpful staff

Flew in for a business meeting the next day. I arrived very late.. Due to delayed flight.. The staff was waiting for me. Seriously.. I walked in and he held open the for me and addressed me by name. Welcoming and friendly.. Even at 1:30am! (in sure that made it easy to know it was me). The room was great.. suited my needs fine. Large clean comfortable.. Note no toiletries.. Bring your own

Not fancy but cordial with nice breakfast

The room was adequate, nothing fancy but the owner was a very cordial gentleman who pleasantly fulfills each and every need of the visitors. The pool was very cool,, refreshing and nice, the room adequate and the breakfast was pleasant with do it yourself little round waffles, fresh juices and fruits and fresh milk and hot coffee. They have a shuttle to the airport which was very convenient for visitors who needed it.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Be sure to visit the Texaz Grill, an iconic little restaurant tucked away on Van Buren and 16th for fantastic chicken fried steak, grilled steaks, and fried catfish dinners while in Phoenix. It has better food than Pinnacle Peak.

Comfortable

Everything was clean and quiet. I had a very long flight from Europe and was happy to get a good nights rest. The breakfast helped too! I had another flight the following day.

Average Hotel

Room was pretty clean. The A/C could have worked better. Needed batteries for the remote. Which they didn't have any on hand, and said to come back in the morning (that would help... NOT).

Good location but sketchy circumstances

1 star is a gift. Air conditioner too loud to use during sleep hours. Carpet disgusting. Hotel near airport but neighborhood did not feel safe. 2 story with no elevator...no attempt by employees to assist to 2nd level with heavy suitcase even after saying I had a bad back. No tv channel guide and desk fellow didn't know what channel abc or nbc or cbs were on. Need I continue? I know none of my friends would stay at this hotel. I wonder WHO gave this hotel 2 stars?

not

First thing we found at checkin was that there was an additional fee for parking. We specifically chose this location because of the offer for up to a week of parking at no additional cost. Second, the room had an odd odor. Won't be staying there again.

Disaster

Hotel was overbooked and the alternative arrangements made by the owner with another hotel owned by same company was the absolute worst hotel I ever stayed in.

Lacking

The advertised shuttle was non-existent. The internet didn't work. The breakfast offering was below average. If I wasn't in such a hurry I would have asked for a refund. I was really quite disappointed.
