“Wonderful location and nice amenities”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I was pleasantly surprised by this small hotel chain. The room was a small suite with microwave, sink and refrigerator and a separate sleeping area. Everything was super clean. The location was close to airport making our stay a breeze with access in and out. The hotel has its own shuttle that will take you back and forth from the airport and anywhere within a 5 mile radius 24 hours a day. Breakfast is good also. The front desk staff recommended several restaurants with in walking distance that were good and open late with outdoor seating, Phil's in particular was quite good. We were lucky enough to get Diamond tickets and the shuttle took us downtown where we hopped on a train that took us to Chase Field. We rented a really nice car from Rick across the street at Rent-a-vette. He actually suggested we stay there even though we had business in Chandler. We loved it.

I just came here for the day, from San Diego, to see the Hamadryas Baboons they have at the zoo here. But I shoulda checked first as baboons exhibit was closed...and I saw this motel, and it seemed like what I was looking for...yeah, there's cheaper, I know that, but this is a really nice place for me, real quiet, and peaceful and not so cheap that parking lot has excess of junkies and lowlifes...

Real nice staff, and parking was right next to my room, tho upstairs I guess is a bit more of a pain...construction next door but I can't hear a thing thru my room, and it's just daytime hours. Anyway, I've been here 3 days, as I'm so comfortable here I've not wanted to leave :)

Room Tip: Ask for downstairs, by parking if being close to your car matters.

I pulled up to check-in and was not liking what I saw...construction barriers and workers to the south and no place to park. I walked into the lobby and told staff I wasn't happy with what I was seeing. They gave me a key to check out a room and if I still wasn't happy, they would cancel my reservation. BTW, I had three rooms reserved. After checking out the room, which required a walk through the property, I was liking the cozy feel of Red Lion. I told them I wanted to check some other places but soon returned as this location was good for our purposes, close to the 202 and Scottsdale Road.

We spent three nights at Red Lion and could not have been more pleased. There was a turf area where my granddaughters could practice with their volleyball. They enjoyed the pool. Two of our rooms were suites. The living area was very adequate but the bedroom was a little tight. Supposed to be two queen beds but seemed more like expanded full size to me. Breakfast was typical hotel fare.

The staff all three days was very courteous, helpful and accomodating. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our rooms were on second floor, near Scottsdale Road, but didn't hear road or construction noise...

One of the least expensive hotels in the area, but don't let that scare you away! Clean room with crisp sheets on a comfortable bed, lots of great options for breakfast. Front desk person wasn't always around to answer questions during normal business hours, but that was the only negative thing we experienced during our stay. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

I used the 30% promotion , so the room rate great! The only thing that turned me off was the bathtub, it was gray on the bottom , not sure if it could be cleaned unless they resurface the tub. Otherwise the room was clean

Hello gigspa51 first I'd like to thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was glad to see you take advantage of one of our promotions. I was a little remised to here you had problems with our tub. Since your stay I have addressed the "tub problem" with our maintenance director. We look forward to having you as a guest in the future. It was a pleasure serving you.

Very convenient to PHX airport, 10 minute drive or use their complimentary van. Many nearby restaurants. Room was clean, well designed and well maintained. Comfortable bed. We stayed in a suite and had a microwave, refrigerator and extra room. Good complimentary breakfast. Reception Staff is helpful. Great value in a pricey city.
