“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 18 June 2007

THIS IS FOR HAMPTON INN TEMPE 1429 N. Scottsdale Rd.

Nice hotel....pool can be crowded during certain times of the day, but besides that...great hotel. Good breakfast. Nice rooms. It says Tempe...But it is in between Tempe and Scottsdale. About 5 Miles to each downtown, maybe a little closer to Tempe.

Best price is on AAA.com

Stayed March 2007

We stayed at the Hampton Inn for 3 nights, were upgraded to a Suite (maybe because of our Hilton Honors silver card?), upon check in we were given 2 free cold bottles of water (the front desk person said that the ones in our room were probably too warm by now). We really liked the room, very spacious, with a walk-in closet, nice kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator and coffee machine. Really liked the extra room provided in the shower by the curved rod. Beds and beddings were nice and confortable. The swimming pool was sparkling clean and my daughter loved it! There were fresh towels by the pool for the guests to use. The breakfast room was nice and the presonnell very attentive: one morning we were the only people left in the room and it was past their closing time and -without saying anithing- they had the curtesy to leave some cereal boxes and milk over the counter while they were cleaning because they figured my daughter might have wanted some... Excellent service!

I was looking for a hotel for a Baseball Spring training vacation. I have stayed at many hotels in the Scottsdale/Tempe area over the last 10 years. I usually spend between $120 and $200 per night with taxes. The Hampton had a "suite" available for $150 + $18 Tax per night. I was surprised at the layout of the suite. It had a real living room with solid double doors that isolated it from the bedroom. In the living room there was a large TV, small fridge, microwave and sink, a desk, a large comfy couch and chair. Plenty of lights and a separate air conditioner/heater. This was nice as my wife likes to get up very early and read while I like to sleep in.
The bed was actually more comfortable than my bed at home. The shower was great. There was also another large TV and air conditioner/ heater. We felt right at home.
The only downsides were that the bedroom window was on Scottsdale Road and sometimes noisy. Also, it was a smoking room and had a little smell. The cleaning staff ran a special "ionic cleaner" for an hour before we entered the room and it made a big improvement.

We stayed here Friday and Saturday nights, March 23 & 24, 2007.
The hotel's location was good for us as we were attending an event at the town lake. The suite was spacious and well-furnished, and the king bed was very comfortable.

However, our room (102) was located right beside Scottsdale Road, which is a very noisy street, with many motorcycles as well as other vehicles passing by. Even with earplugs I was bothered by the street noise. The hotel was full so I was unable to get another room.

The hotel offers a "hot breakfast" but both Saturday and Sunday morning there were no eggs, which I was counting on. The hot food both days was some kind of sausage, and bad-tasting waffle sticks Sunday, and French toast sticks Saturday that I didn't try. I don't like continental breakfast fare and I'm a vegetarian, so I was disappointed. However the coffee was good and there were bananas.

We booked this hotel because it was convenient for our business stay. Later, we were happy to discover that they provided free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel. Upon arrival, we were somewhat concerned because the property, although apparently well maintained, seemed older and there was outside access to the rooms. We voiced this concern to the manager at the front desk, who informed us that a security officer would be on duty around the clock.

Although I think the property is a little overpriced because of this, we found it to be more than satisfactory in every other way. First of all, the doors all face the courtyards or pools, not the parking lots, which did make a difference. When we entered our king suite, I must say, we were very impressed. It was very nicely furnished, actually more like a resort than a hotel. It was very clean and had been recently updated, and there were lots of little extras: dishes, pots, pans, a fridge, microwave, extra toiletries, free internet, etc. Our room faced a pool, there are several on the property, which was also well maintained and quiet! Breakfast was very nice and included hot and cold items as well as extra beverage choices. Every employee, from the shuttle driver to the groundskeeper, was polite and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

the hotel was very nice, especially for a hampton. its motel style, with doors opening to the outside, but they all face an inner courtyard with palm trees, and some face the pool too. we had a suite with 2 very comfortable queen beds, and pull out couch. the fridge was pretty big, and it was nice having 2 tvs, and the room was a steal at only $143/night. its within (long) walking distance of arizona state and the bars and restraunts in tempe, and theres a shuttle and also a park nearby. the staff was great as well, and the breakfast was like other hampton continental breakfast, with a couple of entrees (eggs, waffles, breakfast meats, etc). there's only one computer which is kind of a hassle, but theres free wireless, and i saw the front desk printing off a few thing for guests. i would definitley stay there again if i return.

Rooms are spacious, well decorated, and comfortable. Beds are heaven. Bathroom is immaculate and completely modern. 2 TVs, fridge/freezer, microwave, helpful and efficient staff, pleasant lobby. Full walk-in closet. Hotel is pet friendly (I got lots of compliments on my bichon frise).

The room doors open to the outside (actually, to an interior open courtyard), which may be a turnoff for some travelers, but I never felt unsafe as walkways were well lit and were not exposed to the street.

I would certainly stay here again.
