We had our whole family staying here and we especially liked the grounds. They are wonderfully maintained and our granddaughter could run around safely under the orange trees, play in the playground and get to know the pleasures (and dangers!) of cacti. Plenty of space for us to gather for conversations and walks.

Wasn't expecting this- here to work at Midwestern University for a couple days. No, it's not "posh"- but I travel 3-4 days a week typically, and that's not what I look for. I like great customer service, clean, quiet, a comfortable bed, fast internet, and a few nice "touches". All of this is here plus a lot that I wasn't...

We found the hotel to be a pleasant surprise. It was clean, the room fairly new and the hotel grounds well kept. The parking can be a bit of a challenge if you arrive late but there is always parking being a college campus, just a little more of a walk. The breakfast was adequate and bottled water/coffee and snacks...

Great place to stay for spring training . It was about 25 minutes from Camelback Ranch where the Dodgers and White Sox play. Even closer to the Seattle /San Diego complex. Stayed here 4 nights this year and I plan to stay here again next year during spring training. They have a snack room with free snacks. Place has a...

Stayed here a week for Spring training. Conference center/hotel is not far from Ms stadium. Room was not large, but bed was comfortable. Not Spartan, but not a lot of the space and amenities you might come to expect in the larger chains. But the price can't be beat. A bit off the main drag, but not difficult to find.

Nice place, safe, clean and friendly staff. Nice community snack bar, offers free snacks and drinks. Nice quiet location. Parking was not good, as we had a hard time finding something close to our room. Came back after day trip and room was not cleaned, had to ask them to come clean as we stayed 3 nights.

We came for a race and was pleasantly surprised. The price was great and the room was nice and comfortable. We were really able to relax after the long race. They offered us snacks and drinks as well. Also, it was a few blocks from my uncles home so that was a bonus.

Nicely outfitted rooms in a quiet location. Didn't realize they had a continental breakfast till I asked. Downside was that they charge $5/night for parking...and parking was so limited that I had to walk a far distance at night to get from car to room. For THAT privilege - I am not happy about having to pay! Probably will stay...

It was ok, for less money you could stay at a Super 8 or motel six for the same type of room. The Staff was nice and it was clean. For the type of room a little pricey. I have gotten compareble rooms in Phoenix closer to where I go for about half the price.
