Overall our experience at this Red Roof Inn was pleasant. My little brother and I were in the area for a baseball game, but didn't want something that was really in the heart of downtown Phoenix too close to the airport and all of the traffic, so something a bit out of the way was exactly what we were looking for. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again, but let me break down my review into some more detail.
The rooms are recently renovated, which is something I always look for at the Red Roof Inns I stay at. Their renovated rooms are pretty much the same throughout all of their hotels, so I always know exactly what to expect when walking into a room, and I was not disappointed at this Red Roof Inn either. The beds were comfortable, but are a bit on the firm side, which while I might enjoy, some people may not. The comforter and sheets were ample and were clean and comfortable as well, no scratchy quilts or blankets here. The A/C in the room was functioning perfectly, which is a must for Phoenix during the summer. My two gripes were that we found trash underneath the beds that was not from us and the bathrooms clearly have not been renovated (at least not recently). There were rust stains around the drain, on the side of the tub, and the floor around it. (For reference, I stayed in room 137) Other than that, the stay was more than pleasant, the room was clean, and we got a good night's sleep.
This hotel takes a bit of navigation off of the highways, so if you're looking for something you can just pull off of the highway right into, this isn't it. They are a nestled into a cluster of hotels in Tempe, AZ, just a mile or so off of I-10 going either direction. Thankfully, due to it's lack of vicinity to the highway, the area is quiet with none of that usual traffic in the background. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and several shopping areas not that far off.
I didn't have much interaction with the staff other than check in and check out, but they were kind and courteous on both occasions and asked to make sure I had everything I needed.
The pool area was clean and the water was slightly warm, but still a great relief from the heat and muggy air after the storms this past weekend. The free wi-fi worked, but was a bit slow initially. I phoned tech support and had them reboot the wireless to help resolve some of the problem and it seemed to fix it for the most part, though I don't really expect much from free wireless at a hotel. At least it's offered.
Other than the few small issues I had with the trash under the bed and the quality of the bathrooms, we're likely to return to this hotel again. It was a good stay in a quiet part of town, not far off from the highways or anything we needed access to and I would definitely recommend the hotel to others, who are looking for a no frills budget stay.
