If you just look a place to rest in night this is place for you. It is sided in center of Tempe and there are good cafeterians and restaurants close to the hotel. Rooms are clean and remodeled. There are no restaurant or cafeterian in the hotel, so if you looking for more services this might not be the hotel...

Great location:walking distance to everything on Mill Ave. Clean and nice place that has been recently remodeled. The owners keep working on improving the hotel and adding amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. I feel like it's gonna be a very popular place for Tempe visitors.

This place blew me away! From the outside, it is an aging small motel. First, walking into the reception area, I was greeted by a very friendly and knowledgeable Sindoor, one of the owners. She gave me some great tips, and was willing to look up bus schedules for me. I walked into the room, and it was nothing like...

All I can say is that these new owners are doing a great job of making an old hotel into a very clean and nice boutique experience. They're their heart and soul into their renovation. The rooms are perfectly remodeled and very clean. From the carpets, beds, and entirely new bathrooms, all things I'd expect from a high end hotel....

The people are super friendly and helpful. I have been here before and this last time the renovations looked great. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Wouldn't stay anywhere else there's also a good variety of places surrounding the hotel whether you're looking for a night out or a good hike.

I had visited for a graduation at ASU. I had found the renovations to be tasteful and suited my taste. I also found the nightlife to be great with Mill ave literally walking distance.

We appreciate the great review! Apologies for the transportation being difficult, normally independent drivers are available quicker than cabs, but that can cause issues too. Our light rail system works great for those busy days. Thank you for choosing our hotel and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

We always come to this hotel when visiting any concerts at Tempe Town Lake. We have never had any issues and the owners are fabulous! Treated like family every time we stay. The rates are cheap and the area is so convenient with a bank and CVS right next door. Super clean and update so nicely!!
