Exceed my expectations, front desk guy and housekeeping lady very friendly! Clean bed, bathroom, ac, tv and wifi worked perfect. Quiet, never heard something and stayed 1 month! ...seems they renovated a bit ( painting, stairs, parking lot ). Looks nice compared to the other motels around...it's not the best neighborhood, but it's safe ( day n night) no worries...just mind your business. Very convenient location ( 5 min walk to light rail...10mins ride to downtown or Airport )...best value in PHX ( paid 28/night + taxes ). I recommend to anyone on a budget and not picky

We didn't do our homework and turns out Phoenix is busy with LOTS to do for the month of March. We found this place and booked it since everything seemed to be occupied or going. The front desk seemed dated, but we were not concerned. We got to our room later that night and we were pretty scared for our family while there. We do not EVER staying there.

Yes, this is a "Knights Inn" that is in a slightly "sketch" part of Phoenix, but it is well managed and maintained and you can't beat the price. I got used to it very quickly and never felt uncomfortable. The rooms are very nice with lots of light and nice air conditioning system. Everything worked well. The television was nice and large and had all of the popular channels. This hotel is in a very convenient location. Close to Sky Harbor Airport and Downtown. Also very close to freeways and the light rail. It's also easy to get to popular Scottsdale and Tempe. Overall, this place was an excellent choice for me and I would stay again.

We stayed at this place for 4 nights and the rooms are great value. It´s clean, beds are very comfortable, it´s close to the airport and public transport and the staff is very accommodating. The area can be a bit scary after dark but it´s fine during the day. I would definitely stay here again.

Dirty, gross, bugs, and hookers! Don't stay here, the people are rude and not helpful. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, I'd rather sleep in my truck over staying there! Nastiest place I've ever stayed at!

If you need an inexpensive place close to the airport, look no further. Our flight was delayed..did not get in till 2AM but we were professionally greeted. The exterior is very modest, but the room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable. We stayed again on the way out, and by that time, considerable renovations had been made. The manager was attentive and the place exceeded my expectations.

The Skyline Inn is a one-star hotel, so we didn't have high expectations at all. We were very surprised by the cleanliness of the room, the professionalism of the staff, and what was overall a very comfortable and pleasant stay. I would definitely stay here again.
