My wife and I stayed here during the week of July 4 and we had a very pleasant stay. All of the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, our room was clean, the free breakfast was great. The location is great if you want to be by the airport, but is clearly not in walking distance from any attractions. Downtown Tempe is only about 3 miles from the hotel (straight down University Dr.) and is very easy to get to.
There was an incident on our first morning: the boneheads in the room next to us decided to light up their weed at 8am and stink up the whole floor. I called the front desk and the issue was resolved quickly and professionally by the general manager. The idiots next door were removed from the property by the police, and the general manager introduced himself to me and explained the situation. I was very impressed with the way the situation was handled and the professionalism.
The pool is small, but it's good enough. I don't like that you have to walk out the front of the hotel to get there (as opposed to being in the back with easier access). The pool is at the front, so you have to listen to the cars fly by on University while you are trying to enjoy the pool.
My only complaint about this hotel is the "exercise room", which is really more like an "exercise closet". It only has 3 cardio machines and if you are in thee with anyone else, there is no space. I believe the Fairfields around here are being renovated soon, so hopefully this one will get a new exercise room.
Overall, I would strongly recommend is hotel! We really enjoyed our stay here.
