I was greeted in a very friendly way as soon as I arrived. And to my surprise, I was selected as the "gold rewards member of the day." I had a little goody bag waiting for me in my room when I arrived, with a nice handwritten note. A very comfortable stay and great location. I was able to walk...

General Manager Issue: Airport Hotel that advertises Free Shuttle as a part of the room rate and has poor processes in place and limited scope in terms of hours in use. Flights go in and out of Phoenix Airport from before 5am and arrive after Midnight. Sadly on the night I stayed, the driver was sick without a backup plan...

James O, Manager at Courtyard Tempe Downtown, responded to this review

Thank you for your review so we can make improvements. We strive every day to provide service over and beyond what is expected by our guests. Generally, we pay for taxi service for guests requiring an airport shuttle when we have unexpected staffing shortfalls.

This is definitely a motel that you want for the location. It's literally a few minute walk from Mill Ave. and a 10-15 minute walk from the ASU campus. I was here on business without a car, so it worked out great! Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Plenty of places to walk and you'll feel safe, even at late...

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Tempe only a few blocks from Mill Ave. It is also across the street from a light rail stop and only a few steps away from a large movie theater. You can walk anywhere, but be careful. I wasn't on Mill Ave. for more than a few seconds before I was...

Excellent hotel to stay for both the start and finish line. Wonderful staff, clean room, free transportation to and from the airport. It is perfectly located to the Light Rail. This is the perfect hotel for the Rock N' Roll marathon. I would suggest they add a pasta dinner the night before the race.

Many guests return every year for the Rock and Roll Marathon because of our close proximity to the race. Thank you for the review and the excellent feedback. i hope we see you next year!

The hotel is nice enough, but I wish courtyard would offer free breakfast. The location is great for Tempe or Mesa, but a bit far from downtown Phoenix. We were here for the Arizona Rock and Roll marathon and the location for that was perfect! The cost was a bit extreme, $200, but worth it for the convenience of being...

For Business trip the Hotel is good. Centrally located. Parking space could be an issue. Rooms are comfortable and big, maybe a little old fashioned. Bath is in the room. I did not like the shower so much. Less water and need to be renovated.

We selected this hotel because it was located close to an event that we had to attend in the area. From the time we checked in, our stay was quite pleasant. Hotel staff were friendly, helpful, responsive to our needs, and just genuinely nice people. The hotel was clean, especially in the public areas. The decor in the room could...

I visited Tempe from the UK on a business trip for 5 nights - after a very long trip I arrived at the hotel to be greeted by friendly welcoming staff.

My room for the first night was 187 plus tax. While I was grateful to have a place to stay on a busy ASU weekend, the hotel was not Marriott quality. The first floor smelled like boo-boo. the room carpet was stained and the bed was broken down where too many people say on the side. In the morning, there...

Thank you for your feedback which allows us the opportunity to improve. Losing the hot water system is a difficult time for any hotel and its guests. I am so sorry you were a part of this weekend.
