Motel 6 Phoenix Tempe - Broadway - Asu
Ranked #45 of 53 Hotels in Tempe
Reviewed 26 July 2012

According to my last two night's experience, this motel has gone downhill. The location is still great as you are surrounded by fast food places, banks, a couple of bars, gas station right next door, and you are not far from the Arizona Mills Mall and the funky Mills Avenue area.
However, the ac would not adjust and could be turned to low, the bedspread had dried mustard on its underside, the remote battery cover kept popping off and the batteries dropping out, and the cliental in the next couple of rooms (with their fights and crying) left a lot to be desired. I took the bedspread into the office, asked for a new one, and one was never brought to the room. I used the chair back to deflect the super cool air blowing on my head as the left and right direction controls were broken or missing.
It still seems a safe area for families and perhaps a room inspection before settling in would be the way to go.
There is a great park and pool 1/2 block to the left and then right on Roosevelt for a block. Lots of dog room, but the dog must be on a leash. The park even provides some doggy waste bags and since no one was around I let the dog run free. There is a nice small lawn area outside the front of the motel for you and your dog to relax on. PLEASE, pick up the dog waste. So many owners seem to feel it is their right to leave the waste for the hotel to take care of and that is why so many places charge us dog owners. Watch your pet.

The police visited almost every day due to the shady characters. The staff was EXTREMELY rude, insulting, and threatening to me when there was a mistake about my reservation. Even after discovering their mistake, I didn't get an apology for the hostility and threats to call the police and have me put on the street. It was beyond horrible.

First time ever I have had what I would call a below average room. Drapes had burn holes as well as the bedspread. Bathroom flooring was missing in one place and the molding sure needed an upgrade. The ac had no vent on it and it blew directly onto my head no matter how I lay. The first room I was sent to was wide open with towels on the floor and no sheets.
HOWEVER, the front desk lady was so embarrassed and walked me through several choices, door to door, in order to make sure I had a clean room. Unfortunately, the room was not very good.
As always, super staff and this is a wonderful location. Drive down Mill Ave to the lite rail stop and enjoy the whole city for $3.50 all day. All around the motel are fast foods, a great bar and grill across the street, and the Tailgater Bar and Grill a couple blocks down. Gas station right next door, too.

Nice area out front for walking the dog and sitting in the grass. Will return to give it another try.

First and foremost, front desk staff and housekeeping staff were very kind and courteous. We checked in and were assigned room 122 which had holes in curtains, marks on walls, water damage/patches in the bathroom, didn't smell clean, A/C unit was a little beat up, and HUGE gaps around the door which let in sunlight, cigarette smoke, and the music blaring from the gigantic gas station next door, 24 hours a day. Plus, those gaps plus the holes in the curtains and noise made us feel quite insecure there. Also no WIFI in Room 122 (Only certain rooms are wifi-accessible). We were sold wifi cards even though the room they gave us didn't have wifi. We were eventually moved to another room after one horrible night of our three-night stay, to a 2nd floor room which had few if any problems. Basic and clean, WiFi worked in the second room. Beds are old and not too comfy. Not bad if you just need a bed at night, but not too great for hanging out/lounging around on the in-between times. Probably a great value during spring training or fiesta bowl when the whole town's sold out. They take pets, which can be a plus. Just make sure you ask for and get there early enough to get a 2nd floor room, facing the Arby's (not the gas station) and give yourself enough time to inspect the room and move if it's not up to your standards. Late night parking was a hassle, the lot filled up and we had to park next door in the Arby's lot.

I stayed here in 1996 and again in 2009. It was nice and tidy in '96, and in '09 there were lots of upgrades. The laminated flooring is a real plus and they improved on the shower. The original water flow restrictor was very stingy, but in '09 it was much better. Very quite motel for a "party" college town. Not too large, with parking directly in front of the room. Staff was very congenial. Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely one of the top places I have ever stayed. Clean, renovated, and a friendly staff down to a call to the room five minutes after checkout seeing that all was well. Plus a good internet signal work the addicted user. Not a single drawback.
