Management from day one was not helpful at this hotel when we did a double booking accidentally they were not helpful in resolving it. We had to wait 45 mins for an airport shuttle after a long international flight only to check in and find out they stuck us in a room with two beds. We had booked and paid... More

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn on 48th, but the last time I was there, the internet service was horrible, so I decided I wasn't ever going back there. I really like this hotel. The price was reasonable, the location much better - only a little over a mile to Mill street, and more importantly the internet worked. Yusif... More

Stayed for a couple of nights on business. Property is not as nice as other HIE's I've stayed at. But it was fine for what I needed. Comfy bed, lots of outlets, decent breakfast. Adjacent to ASU if that's where you are headed. I was impressed that they offered an airport shuttle given that the hotel isn't all that close... More

This is a basic hotel, but still a nice option if you need quick/close access to ASU... you can't beat the location. Rooms are comfortable and the staff was excellent.
