    « A quick quiet stay »

    We wanted to quickly find a hotel at midnight, since our layover was 7 hours long at the airport. We found this Best Western only 3 miles away. The lobby was quiet and the staff helped us quickly for us to get a few hours sleep before we have to head back to the airport. They also had a shuttle to take us back to the airport in the morning, which was very helpful.

    « Excellent customer service »

    Stayed at this property for a week back in February. I was there for a week for business. The stay was great thanks to David, the shuttle driver, and front desk agent, Tyler W. I left a review back at the beginning of March. But I forgot to get a receipt so had to call today. Stacia answered the phone and was extremely professional and efficient. I actually asked her to come work for our property in Ohio! I wanted to make sure she got props for her help! Thanks, Stacia!

    « Very Average »

    The hotel appears to possibly be in the middle of a renovation. The room looked like something out of the 70's with visible stains on the carpets. The pillows were extremely small, looked more like throw pillows than actual pillows. The pool and hot tub were dirty and the tiles we're missing or coming off around the sides. The fitness room smelled awful, a cross between sewage and animal carcass. The machines were old and there was very little that could be done outside of cardio. Breakfast was actually pretty decent and the staff was great.

    « Spent 1 Night »

    Spent a Saturday night, 3/24, after help cleaning out my father in law's, wife's dad, house after he passed. First the prices were crazy in the area, spring training for baseball was going on in the area. Second the staff on Saturday was very polite and courteous, no problems there. Third is that I got to breakfast the next morning 3/25, at 845 and there wasn't much there and quite a few people were looking for food. Now my fourth point, the breakfast got closed down at 9 AM sharp, should have continued until 10 AM in my opinion, a dad was getting his kids breakfast and the lady was just taking the breakfast items away! What the heck! I went to the desk to say something and there was a sign saying that someone will be back shortly.... After waiting, a lady came back and I explained to here about the father and others that were trying to get something to eat, she said ?well it closes at nine.? She had the attitude of don't bother me..... I would have rated it a 4 (found a hypodermic cap in parking lot or it would have been a 5) instead of a 1, but with a staff with a attitude of ?oh well, you won't be back', I definitely would look for someplace else.

    « This Place Should Be Called "Best Western Minus." »

    I realize that they are going through a remodeling, but the room was dated and not at all appealing. The bathroom door had the lock broken off, there were holes in the wall where a picture was mounted, there was a free standing closet that you could not even get to and the price was way too high for the facility. Yes it is spring training, but there are other hotels in the immediate are that were at least $50 cheaper and it was not a Motel 6. I only stay one night because of the price and the place is full. The desk was full of dust. Do not know how they do it. I rated it as average because the staff was very friendly.

    « Yelp discount in question »

    This hotel advertises an offer of 10% off the best available rate if you check in on Yelp which I did. Upon checking in their were 2 gentlemen at the front desk who stated that they never herd of the Yelp discount. One of them took a picture of the discount coupon on my phone with his cell phone. He stated that he would send the picture for to the manager for verification. Upon checking out, this time a woman at the front desk also seemed confused. Employees need better training.

    « Worst Best Western ever »

    Been staying in Best Westerns for 40 years but probably no more. Shuttle only runs once an hour so had to take Uber to avoid a 55 min wait at the airport ( probably my fault for not checking first). Then we check in and immediately noted that it appeared that the plumbing had been backing up in the tub. Called and the maintenance man came with a spray bottle of disinfectant. Worked on it a while and pronounced it repaired (smelled better anyway). Went to dinner and came back to a tub now full of the most disgusting black sludge We've ever seen. They graciously moved us to another room reeking of cigarette smoke with the wall paper peeling. Take our advice, give this place a pass.

    « Room Rates Vary »

    My wife and I stayed here 5 days and had two different rooms. The rates go up with the local events. Major League Baseball teams were having preseason games. We had a king bed but had to move to two queens after day two. Many of the rooms are being renovated. The queen beds were more comfortable than the king. The showers have those pump dispensers for shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Not my favorite because the tubs are narrow to begin with and with soap in your eyes you can bump your shoulders. It has to be hard to renovate a hotel that is almost always full. Our rates were $174 & $154, depending on what was going on in the area. Breakfasts were good but crowded. Biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, eggs, link sausage, yogurt and assorted pastries + juices. There are tables outside if you need them. The staff was very nice and helpful. The free WIFI is f-a-s-t-. Great hospitality from Chris and Stacia M. Chris was great at check in and suggested good restaurants in the area. During the week Stacia M was a huge help in getting us straightened out with the laundry facilities. Providing soap and change so that we could do a couple loads of wash.

    « Nice hotel »

    We have stayed here before and still like the hotel and the location. It has a nice breakfast. The room decor is getting worn and the bed is getting lumpy. I noticed new decor being brought in to the hotel and I hope new mattresses are next. We asked the front desk for a recommendation for a accessible taxi and the company they gave us came the next day, on time with out a wheelchair accessible taxi. It took them 30 min to get one to us.

    « Don't expect an affordable stay »

    I have stayed at this hotel 5 or 6 times as it's convenient to the airport. mall, Home Depot. Its been upgraded although the bathrooms can use some work. Fairly quiet. Good beds. The problem with this BW is it raises prices about %150 during local events. Check prices otherwise you will pay $200 for an $80 room.

    « Excellent with a WINK »

    First off, drive up and you find a most pleasant and appealing grounds and building. Then you enter to an equally inviting lobby and STACIA, a woman with a most pleasing personality and a warm smile welcomed us!!! Check in was a breeze and she and Tyler were able to answer all of our questions. Our room was attractive, clean and comfortable and the WIFI worked great! The next morning we met Shay at breakfast and she was friendly and always had such a warm smile...and believe us, she worked hard keeping all the items replenished. This was not an easy task as it was very busy and crowded but she remained calm and efficient. On Sunday night our room key didn't work so it was down to the front desk where we met Terrance...what friendly and great guy. Little mix up in the registration (2 nights paid for and 1 free on points) but Terrance was quick to fix it! He even went up to the room with us to make sure everything was okay! Then it came time to leave and Stacia was working...so it was a simple and pleasant check out with the "smiling Queen." And should you stay here and you encounter Stacia...just mention "wink" to her and we're sure she'll remember our little friendly and fun interaction!!!

    « Stacia (front desk) made a huge difference on my trip »

    Being a seasoned traveller I have learned a few things about hotels, the most important one is that staff makes a huge difference on your experience, regardless of the brand, ratings, amenities and point system used. I had a business trip to Phoenix and much to prepare ahead of time, I was at the airport at 3:30 am without sleep and looking forward to the sun after a long winter. Alas, my flight was long and noisy, Phoenix was cloudy and rainy and my cab ride to the hotel had a very unpleasant smell. Exhausted at the counter I met Stacia, she was friendly and efficient, knew better than me what I needed and went out of her way to help me get in my room as efficiently as possible. It doesn't matter if you stay at the most luxurious resort if your brain is overtired and you are grumpy; on this trip to Phoenix I got time to rest, prepare for work and got a huge smile and excellent service when checking in.

    « It wasn't as good as my "first impression" »

    I remember loving my first experience at a Best Western (not sure where) and on my last few visits (different locations) I have been disappointed. However I was impressed with the front desks handling of a difficult customer.

    « Left at Airpirt »

    I paid $20 for Park and Fly and then was not picked up. I had to pay for a cab to get to the hotel. I asked the manager for a refund of my money and he works not though I watched him argue with the staff as to why no one picked me up. GIBE ME MY $2O!

    « Great hotel »

    Close to many places to eat and shop. You have Arizona mills mall walking distance to hotel. The hotel staff has been great. The rooms are clean and the hotel appearance has been updated a little. With all the devices we carry today I do wish they had more convinient outlets to plug into.

    « Just OK »

    Arrived in Phoenix at 1:00 am waited called shuttle and advised 20 mins, which was accurate. The driver was courteous and helpful. Check in was quick. We got in the room and it was pretty warm. We fired up the ac. It worked for about 10 mind then stopped. I stay in a lot of hotels so I'm pretty Sure I can operate the air conditioning?? Anyway, at 0130 in the morning we just went with it. Not a good night's sleep. Make sure you check it early if your there. The room was basic and dated but clean. They also had free WiFi that worked, which was nice. The free breakfast was packed. We went down about 20 mins prior to the end time of 0900. There was basically no food left. I think they were behind trying to get food out. So we went with a waffle and some yogurt. Overall, I gave it 3 stars but some may have given it 2. We were there from 0100 until 1000 so not a long time.

    « Review of the Best Western Plus Hotel Tempe by the Mall, Tempe, Arizona »

    The hotel was clean and neat, however the rooms needed updating. The bed was very soft and lumpy The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. The general up keep of the hotel was average. Needed updating to be like other Best Westerns that we have stayed in.

    3
    « Nice Exterior - needs TLC in the rooms »

    The upgrades give the hotel a nice exterior look, tile in the bathrooms a nice touch, but there needs to be some TLC to the basics. Being a good hotel is when you are brilliant at the basics... ie. Hot water, Water Pressure, no holes in the bath tub. If these things were fixed, it would be a good hotel.... without them... it makes the stay less than desirable.

    « Stay before flight »

    We always stay at this Best Western the night before our flight. The staff is always friendly and courteous. The park and fly service is a great value and makes airport travel that much easier. Breakfast was good with generally a good selection. The addition of bacon to the sausage offered would be welcome as my spouse doesn't fancy sausage. The room was quiet and clean. Overall, a good experience like we have come to expect.

    1
    « Disappointing »

    No hot water in the shower/tub No Coffee, No light bulb in the desk lamp. The hotel location was perfect in correlation to the airport. The hotel rooms were clean, as was the dinning area. The area that had a tree area near the elevators that you looked at while waiting had dust, around the Christmas decoration

    « Needs attention »

    I don't think I received the value for what I paid for the room on my second nights stay. The man yelling all night and banging or throwing things across the room was not handled the way it should of been.

    « POOR MANAGMENT »

    This was my first stay at a Best Western due to it being the hotel for a group function I was attending. It most likely will be my last. 1- reservation was changed without my knowledge, luckily event coordinator called and I was able to correct it, I thought, until phone call on the 3rd day wondering if I was extending my stay. Then had to check out and back in for the 3rd night. 2- A/C return vent was literally fuzzy from lack of maintenance. 3 - A/c system did not function. 4 - after two requests for maintenance in the room, the 3rd night it still was not fixed. At 8:30 pm (when I returned from dinner) reported issues again and maintenance finally determined system was broken and had to move. 5- Manager was not on the property Monday morning when I checked out and had not been made aware of the issues. All the front desk clerk could do was credit my account $20. 6- A few days later now and still no contact from the manager, just called and he's not even in today. Might be new management but a few too many things went wrong for this to not be a more systemic issue.

    « Employee Charm »

    This is an older property and could use renovation, but the fact that it had an airport shuttle was the most inportant factor in choosing it. We had a comfortable room and an excellent bed, even though it wasn't the most upscale place. Manager Chris was top notch.

    « Not pleased »

    The hotel charges a $2.00 fee for lightbulbs. No hotel should charge for lights. First roon given to me had a black goo on the bathtub. Looks like it came from the drain. The second room had a musty oder. A mildew or mold smell. Finally got the room situation fixed. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good and the coffee strong.

    2
    « Convenient and close to the mall in Tempe »

    Reasonable property. The bed was old and had a divot and made it hard to sleep. The room charge explanations were poor at best, looks like I may have had to pay cash for a rewards room, will wait for the bill to come in. The room was not as clean as most Best Westerns we have stayed at, the 'pool side' room door was kind of broken and very hard to latch and definitely not really by the 'pool side'. We were not told that the hot tub was broken when we checked in, I would have moved to a different hotel if I had known, not recognition for being and Elite rewards member either. The upside was breakfast was good and the room was quiet.

    « Thank you »

    Everything turned out well. The room was clean and I loved that we had a back door and a big space to take our dog potty. My boyfriend usually complains about hotels and he said that this one was actually better than the ones we have stayed at.

    « Not great, especially parking, and in the middle of a remodel »

    In the middle of a remodel so there are issues. One HUGE issue I had was not feeling safe in the parking lot. And it was totally annoying to see that the General Manager had a reserved spot right out front. Wasn't that nice that for him! So fantastic that I, as a paying guest, got to park in the very back under sketchy lighting, and felt entirely at risk walking to the side doors by the kitchen area only to find them LOCKED! Really? Oh and no way to access it by using key, so now back to the side to get into a door that made me feel VERY unsafe.

    « No construction notice when booked »

    When my wife was searching the area for hotels close to the Arizona Grand Resort for our Irish Dance Championship trip, this hotel came up on the searches with a pool, fitness center, hot breakfast and affordability. When was not in the listing was that the reason for their current affordability was that their pool was not heated (way colder than acceptable - feet could not get warm after 10 minutes on the steps), and there was widespread construction going on throughout the hotel to where accessing the floor with the fitness center was a trick and there was loud drilling going on the entire day. The breakfasts were good most mornings, but on the final day, Sunday, my older daughter experienced food poisoning within an hour after breakfast, and after having been in high spirits during breakfast - she experienced vomiting the entire trip back to Los Angeles and was only getting rest 9 hours after her meal. l visit a lot of hotels in my business travels, and even the smaller cozier chains need to have a certain minimum thresholds to be met. None of those were met on this and we will be looking elsewhere for next year's event and thinking twice about this chain.

    « ***Worse Experience of a Best Western, Almost had to sleep on Park Bench*** »

    This Hotel was Terrible Undergoing Major Renovations. I am a Platinum Member and the Front Guest Guy could not care a less. I had a Best Western Travel Card for the Whole Room reservation and had nothing but difficulty. Almost had to sleep on a Park bench as he did not want to take cash

    « under construction »

    We chose this hotel for it's location and for the hot tub and pool. Well it is under major construction and the pool was not heated and the hot tub was out of order. The beds were horrible for me it felt like sleeping on springs and our bed was broke, if you sat on the front the end with the pillows catapulted up. Breakfast was decent

    « Kurt's stay at BW »

    Very wonderful staff. Construction work was a little unsettleing but necessary. Room was clean and nice but needed some work, flooring and shower did not work the best. Still a wonderful stay primarily due to the staff.

    « We was not informed they were rebuilding »

    The hotel was under reconstruction during our stay. The first floor, reception area was a big construction zone. Apart from this the hotel was ok value for money. The internet was however impressive with low bandwidth.

    « Renovation »

    This hotel has many issues and should be avoided until most of them have been overcome. The renovation is only the biggest problem. I feel there re others also. If they cared about the guest they would not put them in a room with construction noise right next door.

    « Reno »

    The lobby, breakfast nook, and rooms are under renovation. Might be finished in a few weeks. Usual BW. I have stayed here a few times and rooms can be anywhere from not so good to normal. The bath tub is this particular room was worn out and ugly.

    « More like Worst Western »

    We've stayed at many Best Westerns across the country but for us this was our least favorite. Leaving baggage at PHX @3PM I called the hotel for shuttle let it ring at least 15 times no answer. Checked the number tried again same thing. Tried using my wife's phone same. Used both phones ring, ring, ring, was just about to call Uber and someone answered but put me on hold for a while. The bus gets there its 96* outside but inside the bus was at least 20* hotter. I asked the driver whats up with the A/C he said it doesn't work. Me and another guest had to open all the windows they were closed. Get to the hotel, line of people complaining to the desk person about a broken bed, no power, no A/C...not a good way to start and it didn't get better for us. The overpowering smell (you can taste it) of carpet deodorizer throughout the hotel, barely working A/C made sleeping difficult and the whole building too warm, Police tape across the hot tub filled with dirty water need I go on. One bright spot was the employees and the various managers we delt with. They all really went out of their way to make things as right as they could. Very friendly all of them. We felt sorry for them working in a building with so many issues. Like a sinking ship. I don't know when these five star reviewer's stayed there??

    « Comfortable and convenient »

    The BW Plus Tempe By the Mall is a very comfortable hotel, and the location is good --- very close to the freeway for easy access to things in the Phoenix area, and just a few miles from Arizona State University. The staff are very accommodating, the facilities are good and the place is clean. The breakfast includes a nice variety of items. Definitely a good place to stay if you are visiting Phoenix.

    Stayed at the hotel on business for 6 days and it is a very convenient location. Great shuttle service to and from the airport, Walking distance to a big mall across the street, walking distance to few dining options (my favorite was the Mexican restaurant Poliberto) and very friendly and accommodating staff. Made my stay very comfortable. Even though I did not use the pool, it looked great for a nice swim in the hot weather.

    « False Advertising »

    No airport shuttle pick-up available after a six hour flight, mid-day on a Saturday, high 90s, left on hold from hotel for over 14 minutes. No local shuttle either, as advertised on website. Terrible wifi. Otherwise, if you just need a bed, clean place, most staff very nice and helpful.

    « Unclean rooms, not worth cost »

    The rooms had lots of staining, linens were not comfortable. Ice machine on our floor didn't work, had one request from the staff and it took an hour for them to deliver anything. Just not a good hotel, would rather stay at the Best Western Sundial.

    4
    « Working toward better »

    I can't add much to what other reviews have said. The front desk staff is excellent-if a bit overworked. The hotel was clean and offers free airport shuttle which is a big positive. Our room was good size, clean and very quiet even though it overlooked the main street. Breakfast was mostly plentiful. On the downside we also found the Wi-Fi very troublesome going in and out. The main street is very busy and can be near impossible to cross if you need to go left out of the driveway during certain hours. Not the hotels fault, but a pain particularly for visitors who are not used to traffic patterns and driving habits in a new city. Yes, there is construction going on, but it was low key. Finally the breakfast was very much on schedule. 9am close means 9am the staff is tearing down. We are early people so know worries for us, but I saw quite a few people stop down just before 9am only to have items removed in front of them while trying to figure out the layout. Usually staff is working on hotel guidelines with time so I don't blame staff for the cutoff (and you gotta stop serving sometime), but be warned if you snooze you lose for sure in this case.

    « Consistently good value »

    I always stay at this Best Western when visiting the Tempe, AZ, area. I've booked at a couple of other locations in the past, and they were fine, but this one is more conveniently situated for me. Also, I find the staff pleasant and accommodating. It's not a "fancy" place but it's perfect for a place to hang my clothes and get a good night's sleep. The breakfast buffet is also excellent!

    We needed to be near the airport in a hotel chain we trusted without spending a bundle. Fortunately we were right across from an awesome mall too!! The staff is amazing and when we asked who to tell-the GM Traves appeared!! An actual GM on property who listened and really cared about what we were saying!! Good luck finding that anywhere else. I would return and I wish other hotels would take their staff to train in customer service here.

    Every staff member I came in contact with at the hotel was friendly and sincere; the room was so nice and clean, quiet too. The pool was clean and warm enough to swim in but the jacuzzi was not working, it wasn't that big of a deal but would have been nice to use.

    « Hotel In Great Location - Courteous Hotel Staff »

    This hotel is in a great location. The hotel staff was great. They were very nice and professional. The shuttle service offered was great and dependable. The hotel was under renovation when I was there. The sheets and towels were clean. The furnishings were worn but that will change after the renovation. Hot breakfast was offered every day. This hotel is convenient to all modes of transportation, shopping, restaurants and attractions. I would stay here again!

    « Close to airport but else sucks »

    This hotel is owned by gurukripa llc so please donot expect anything to be on plus standard. Alll best western plus properties have good companies toiletries. But this has dial 99 toileteries. We checked in late so there was probably no room in the category we booked so they pushed us to handicap room which had not even proper door in bathroom , shower was too low. We had already paid before long time back so either they could have held our room or upgraded us. But stingy owner has guided staff not to do so. Breakfast was ok. The area is not so safe . The only plus is being close to airport

    « Low End Best Western Facility »

    The common area is very well kept, but rooms below Best Western standards in my experience with the product. Bathroom tiles falling off and grout very soiled. Toilet appeared to be rust stained in bowl. Toilet didn't flush well. The soap dispensers on the bath wall are tacky and in very inconvenient location. I hit my head and elbows several times on the dispensers. Towels stained and not well stocked. Water pressure ok, but water temperature fluctuates. Room cleaning occurred late in the day after 4pm for our two night stay. TV poorly located in the corner of the room as far away from the bed as possible. Power strips for today's electronics seem very low budget. USB and power stations like other brands better suited for upscale look and usage. A/C worked well. Fridge and microwave worked well too. Breakfast very lacking, scrambled eggs and bagels! Lower budget brands have more. Bed comfort so-so. Bed linens ok, but pillows a bit hard and too small. Overall, this facility on the low end of Best Western quality. Can't tell a book by its cover in this facility.

    « A Declining Gem »

    I have stayed at this Inn for a number of years on my annual trip to Texas and thought I had found a real gem. I have seen a marked decline the past two years, especially in the breakfast. They serve scrambled eggs with potatoes on the side and scrambled eggs with such microscopic chips of what I guess is supposed to be ham that I don't know why they even bother. They are in the process of renovation which I did not find to be a problem. However, I reserved a mobility accessible room and the mattress was so bad an old-time pallet on the floor would have been more comfortable I am debating whether to give them one more chance on my return trip home.

    « Decent Place, under construction »

    Hotel was generally a good place to stay, there were a few glitches due to construction, but hopefully these will be overcome. I plan on staying there again. Nice rooms, good linens, decent internet, good location, good exercise room (a few repairs needed), but generally speaking a great value for the money.

    Shuttle driver was unprofessional using the F word and playing music at deafening volume to please 7 flight attendants in training. The noise in hotel was deafening due to all the drilling and cutting. Yet hotel desperately needs updating. Poor breakfast. Poor part of town. Staff at desk was pleasant. Better value elsewhere with hotel closer to airport. Internet was out at least half the time. Poor poor value.

    « Never Again »

    When I went to see about checking in I knew that I was early, I had arrived in town earlier than expected. Working at a different Best Western I knew there would be a possibility that I would not be able to check in early but thought I would ask anyway. I went to the desk, the girl working didn't seem to care that i was there nor did she seem interested in helping me out. I asked if I could check in and she told me that her system wouldn't update until 3pm so I would have to wait until then. That's fine I get it. I came back later to check in, there was a different girl working, seemed nicer but still not all that pleasant. I asked for a pet friendly room as I had brought my dogs with me. So it took a bit of time for her to get me into a pet friendly room and not in the room she had already assigned. When I finally made it to the room I was less than impressed with the cleanliness of the room itself, the carpet was super gross, almost black and had two different types of carpet in the room. We went through the patio door to take the dog out to do his business in the grassy "pet area" right outside our patio door, unfortunately they couldn't be out there long because the entire area was infested with fire ants. I only spent one night it the hotel, even though I had originally booked for two. I woke up on Sunday morning to bite marks all over my hands and arms and down the one side of my leg. I can only assume they were bed bugs. Upon check out again there was a front desk agent that couldn't be bothered to assist in check out. Tried bringing up the ant infested pet area and the bites all over me and all she could say was "thanks for letting me know, I'll have someone look into that" I used to bring my family to this hotel A LOT because it is so close to the mall and is in a more central location to any other activities we wanted to do, but after the experience I just had over the weekend I will not stay at this hotel again.

    The staff was extremely helpful and nice. The hotel is undergoing a renovation which is now on the fourth floor level. The noise level was excellent even with the ongoing renovations. The breakfast was excellent with a very large eating area. The staff helping with breakfast was very friendly. Parking available in back for larger vehicles. My only complaint is that it was hard to get in and out of their parking lot during rush hour because traffic backs up on the street out in front of the hotel.

    « Great Location »

    We stayed at this particular hotel due to its proximity to the Arizona Mills Mall, which is one of our favorite shopping areas in Phoenix. We had business in Scottsdale so decided to combine business w/ pleasure and went up a day early to shop. The hotel is right across the street, so is very convenient. The room was clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and the bed was heaven to sleep on. Breakfast was rather limited with scrambled eggs and toast, a few pastries or dry cereal, but it was fresh and ready to go, early in the a.m. Overall, a real deal for the price and location.

    Staff was great. Free breakfast was better than others we've been to. But the beds...So uncomfortable! Even the pillows were awful, and those are cheap to replace. They are remodeling the hotel at the moment. I really hope that they replace the beds. We won't go back otherwise.

    « Welcoming staff »

    On this stay, my flight was delayed due to weather. I called ahead to let the front desk know I wouldn't be in until 3am. I also told them we were tired and hungry. We knew everything would be closed when we got in. We hadn't eaten all day. When we arrived at the hotel about 3:30am, the front desk had gift bags with water and snacks ready for us. The shuttle driver was also very nice. He brought me to a convenience store so I could get the kids something. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is a little older and may need updates, but I found it to be very nice.

    « Terrible stay and customer service »

    We stayed here one night because our air conditioning at home went out in the peak of a record setting heat wave. Husband checked in around 4pm and noticed pretty quick that the thermostat wasn't functioning properly. By 9/10pm after I had been there working on my laptop for a couple of hours, I went to find ice so we'd have cold water at least & talk to the front desk. Was told that the maintenance guy was on his way to do what he could & upper management would call A.C. technicians in the morning. It doesn't make sense to me why they waited that long when there was obviously something wrong earlier. We slept in separate beds because it was too hot otherwise. The lady at the front desk was very apologetic, especially after I told her the only reason we were there was because our AC at home wasn't working. She asked for our room number so I thought that meant they might try to make it up to us a little bit. When the bill came in the morning, there was no "sorry for your inconvenience" or discount. In fact, there was a surprise $25 pet fee for my dog. The day before when I had booked the room, I very specifically asked what the rate was for a pet friendly room and was not told about the fee. If I had been, I would have gone to a different hotel that had a lower total for a pet friendly room. After a terrible night's sleep, I was rather upset and stopped at the front desk to see if given the ac issues in addition to the surprise fee, they would waive the fee. The front desk agent called his manager who just told him to tell me that there was nothing she could do about it. This was even after he pointed out to her that it was very likely the girl I spoke to when I made the reservation probably made the mistake in not mentioning the fee because she's still in training. Having worked in the service industry, I find that impossible to believe, especially if the only person above her is the owner, which is what I was told. I was told that they did not have contact information that they could give me for the owner and the front desk agent suggested that I reach out to corporate. My husband also put in a call for maintenance upon checking in and discovering that the tv inputs wouldn't change (we had brought our XBox from home). They never sent the maintenance guy, and when my husband called the desk again after waiting for 2 hours, he was told that that maintenance man had left for the day. The front desk sent someone else to the room to look at the TV, but he had no idea how to fix it either.

    Would stay here again. Nothing extraordinary but well stocked and had pleasant front desk staff. Very good breakfast choices. We did experience a bit of a problem with the room assigned but the front desk staff immediately re-assigned us to a different room which solved the problem. I will certainly stay here again when we are in this area.

    « Last minute reservation, good location »

    Came to this property on a last minute reservation. Check-in was a bit disorganized as there was a problem with the machine that keys the cards. Created a bit of a wait. Front desk associate was friendly + did best he could, but it was overwhelming. Room was fine, but the property didn't feel like a PLUS (as we have stayed at many BW properties before). Good value/ prices. Location was excellent, close to Arizona Mills. Also made it easy to get back on the road (10) to continue the trip too.

    We have stayed at this hotel several times in that it is convenient to get to the airport. We always stay 1 night. That it. The bottom floor rooms are just OK. Some of the pet friendly rooms are less than OK. People seem to be pleasant. It is quiet and we usually sleep OK.

    The room is old and in need of repairs. I can look past the fact that the air conditioner rattled all night but I can't get past the dirty shower, the stains and filth on the chair and the desk chair. The final straw was foundation makeup on two of the pillows. I slept in my clothes on top of the sheets. I am so disappointed to start my dream vacation to the Grand Canyon like this. Hopefully the next stop will be better. We were supposed to stay here on our way back out of town but that is not going to happen. I have NEVER had any complaints about a hotel room before so I don't know why this is so awful.

    Clean, priced right. Nicely maintained. I don't agree with some of the negative reviews. The hotel is just North of a neighborhood that may be intimidating to some but I stayed North of that area. No issues at all with the location.

    Our room was not cleaned on successive nights, which prompted a complaint from me. I was told to expect a phone call from the manager, which never came. There was no price adjustment -- nothing. Whereas I usually think highly of Best Western, I have had to reconsider that assessment. On the other hand, the Best Western in Prague is fantastic!

    « Disappointed »

    Advertisement showed your venue had breakfast, lunch and dinner. When arrived I asked the woman who checked us in where the restaurant was located. She stated we only serve breakfast. I told her about the advertisement and she said there has never been a room for lunch and dinner. She advised us to walk 10 minutes one way to the restaurant down the road for dinner. I am handicapped and use a walker. This is why I choose a hotel with a restaurant to have dinner. When we arrived to our room there was a menu that you called to ordered dinner. It was a Best Western menu. I called the number and ended up speaking to the same woman at the desk. Once again she said there is no restaurant. She did not know where the menu came from and had never heard of this menu. My elderly husband had to walk 20 minutes, and bring back dinner to the room from the recommended restaurant. It was cold. Second complaint is I called the hotel previous to booking to verify if your pool was heated. I was told that it was heated. I need to do water exercises every day due to my muscle disorder. After dinner I walked the few feet to the pool to do my daily exercise. When I put my toe in the pool it was ice cold. If I had to take a guess the pool was a least 75 degrees or less. This is not a sign of a heated pool. The weather outside was 83 degrees when I went to the pool at 8:00pm. I was unable to exercise ( can not do land exercises due to I fall). Third problem was there was no shampoo or Kleenex in the bathroom. I stepped into the shower and went to use the shampoo and found it empty. I had to step out soaking wet and retrieve my own packed shampoo from my suitcase. Fourth situation was we had scheduled a ride to the airport on one of your shuttles at 7:00am. We were in the lobby at 6:45am. At 7:10am your large shuttled pulled up. Approximately 15 people who were staying for a conference jumped on. When I approached the driver and notified him that we were scheduled to go to the airport, I was told he knew nothing about taking us. He stated he had to take the bus to a conference location. The night desk clerk was just leaving to go home and heard the situation. He offered to drive us to the airport in another of your smaller vans. He also gave us 15% off of our bill. He was very accommodating and professional in how he handled our situation. The man should be thanked by Best Western for his great care of your customers, especially on his time off. The room was clean and we were allowed to bring our small dog. We have always stayed in Best Westerns, but I question if we will stay at your property again. When you advertise and state you have certain amenities the public expects when they arrive to find these offered. If the pool was broken then there should be a sign stating such.

I went to reception to complain and the lady said yes we have already had several complaints but the pool shuts at 10. Went back to room and the toilet had overflowed, nice! This is why the carpet was wet. Next morning we were moved to another room.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This is a convenient place to stay when you are flying out of Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. The staff was very polite and caring. When we were told that we had to take a shuttle before the dining room was open, the manager made sure someone had made a to go breakfast. It was waiting for us when we checked out.

    « Used to be Better Priced »

    Had stayed in this hotel before and liked it because of its central location, nice room, cozy lobby, friendly staff, great breakfast and good value for the money. When planning our recent visit however we found other hotels with good reviews were offering significantly better rates so we didn't come back. Tough competition indeed.

    « Our Staycation »

    The front desk and breakfast staff were outstanding. Our room was clean, we have stayed here before and will stay again. If you need airport transportation to Sky Harbor, this is the one to stay at or the BW in Tempe, NOT the Phoenix Sky Harbor BW, that is in a very industrial area, this is in a safe location, and the breakfast is great.

    « Gracious staff and good full breakfast »

    Lately, I have sought out BW Plus' to stay in as they are usually much better than a standard Best Western and the prices are good. This one while better fell short a little bit - primarily in cleanliness. Not bad in the room; however, the halls needed vacuuming. On the plus side, they gave me what I wanted - a room away from the elevator, drink/ice machine and doors and on a top floor. The front desk staff could not have been more pleasant. And the breakfast was abundant with exceptionally good scrambled eggs.

    « A good hotel for the price. »

    Employees are excellent, grounds good, morning coffee disgusting. Coffee was really the only bad thing at this Hotel. It's a nice Hotel. Room was comfy, breakfast is OK, but maybe it's just me, as I really don't care for Hotel breakfast. The airport shuttle is also excellent.

    « Cheap price = cheap stay »

    We picked this place because of it's location near the airport and not knowing the area. What a mistake! The hallways smell terrible, the pillows on the bed weren't even pillows. They were squares of fabric stuffed with cut of pieces of foam and were no big than a couch pillow. There was a hair clog in the bathtub drain. Not fun standing in water while showering. They obviously don't move things when the clean because there was a half used bottle of lotion on the bathroom counter behind a small stand. The air conditioning was horrible. It was over 100 degrees out and it took all night to cool the room down. Don't waste your money here! We found out too late just how many beautiful hotels there are in Tempe.

    « Stayed at two other best westerns to earn $50 toward another stay which we wasted at this hotel. »

    Hotel was not very clean the hallways had a odor as well as our room. The staff maintenance person was dressed in plan clothes and was not wearing a badge. Front staff was friendly and seemed to give us another room when I presented the DW voucher for $50 off stay. The rooms carpet was spotted and I did not want to walk barefoot. The desk chair had a huge white stain and I did not want to sit on chair. The air did not get the room cold to sleep. The mattress was mushy and you would sink in when you sat on mattress. The room we stayed in was 226 for the record. My wife found long blond hair in the sheets which made us feel they were not changed. We arrived late and tired so we just stayed in the room and did not complain. I will not stay again at this best western. The best western plus is supposed to be their better quality places to stay.

Easy access to downtown Phoenix for more fun with all the city can offer. Stay and Play in one of the best places to visit for pleasure or business, especially if your company is picking up the reasonable cost.

    We stayed here while we explored the area. It was suitable and clean. The breakfast was not the best. The room was clean as was the bathroom.

    We found this hotel when we were stranded at Phoenix Airport because of the Southwest snafu July 20 and on. We called late. They had a room and sent the shuttle for us at midnight.

    This was the first time I have been to AZ, and I must say that the people here have been nothing but nice. Hotel staff is great, beds are very comfortable, breakfast is wonderful . Hotel is located by the mall for shopping and there are plenty of places that are within walking distance to eat or shop. Convenience store located just on the corner. After a long day at work, even though it was 113 degrees, the hot tub was great for my tired feet and the swimming pool was just an added extra to cool me back off afterwards.

    « Wouldn't stay again »

    Maybe I was spoiled after staying 5 nights at the Best Western Plus of Sedona, but I wouldn't choose this hotel again. Nothing terrible, just okay. PROS: Close to the airport and affordable. Front desk workers were very nice and pleasant. Bed was comfortable. Pretty large bathroom. Room and bathroom were clean. CONS: Mold in the air vent. Strange sized square pillows instead of regular sized pillows. Terrible coffee. It was an okay stay, but with all the other choices, you could probably do better.

    « So so »

    While the rooms are clean, they are cramped and outdated, and they have no upgrades since all the rooms are alike. On my way back down to my car I overheard the front desk person say the washer and dryers were not working, (one of the reasons we chose this hotel since we were on an extended vacation and no nearby had these). They said they would put signs up, on day 3, I checked to see if they were working no signs, so put my laundry in, only to find out they did NOT work. I reported it to the front desk and told them there were no signs on machines...the front desk person laughed, and then precedes to tell me "well you will have to go down the street to the laundromat". I was furious at the attitude. Breakfast was good, a big variety, we chose to eat outside....then someone who worked there informed me there was no smoking in that area...I'm looking at him trying to figure out why he was telling me that....he pointed to the ground underneath the table where there were cigarette butts, I promptly informed him that those were NOT mine as I do not smoke, and perhaps before he placed blame, he might want to check this area in the evening and see who is out here smoking underneath the clearly visible no smoking sign!! We happen to know there were people smoking at night since we went to use the pool and had to walk through this area to get there. I was so livid with how we were treated, I will never stay in this place again. The staff needs some lessons in manners!

    Ok first off I have stayed at this hotel more than four times. First few was great quite and good food service. Then it came to one time 12 to 2:30am was a fight in one of the rooms. I would just get to sleep then they start with fighting all over. The bath tub wouldn't drain. Then this last time I was with my daughter. First night I heard like jack hammer everytime the air turned on. So slept off and on. This was in room 307. When air turned on was fine like in middle of the air it was a noise kept us on our toes found out from air conditioner. Then thought ok will deal with this don't want to take time to switch rooms etc. Well next day had breakfast and left at about 10. Came back to room at 7:30 8 at night. Daughter walked in beds were not made nothing had been touched in room. And they didn't replace towels. So had to call for towels. Told them forget Making bed as it was just before getting ready to settle in. Called said don't worry on beds just get us towels. I had always wanted to stay there since they do have shuttle to airport. Decided it is just better to go to another hotel closer to daughters apt. I do know I should of addressed it sooner. Learned to do it next time.

    We normally stay at Best Western hotels and usually the service and quality is excellent. We stayed at the Best Western Plus in Tempe by the Mall. Our experience was not the best. We had drainage problems in the shower. We could literally shower and take a bath at the same time. The towels were dingy appearing to have never been washed. The cleaning service was slow on Day 2 of our visit forcing us to sit in the lobby after returning at 2PM. Later on Day 2, I found my suitcase filled with ants and had to clean everything out and place the suitcase on the desk in order to keep the ants from returning. Very disappointed this time and very unusual for Best Western Now we had never stayed at this one before.

    I am spending my second night here and the staff could not be more pleasant or helpful. The shuttle bus is an awesome amenity, with free pick up and drop off at the airport. They will also give you a lift to places nearby, as long as they are not committed to an airport run. The hotel is very clean and pleasant, but the best thing is the friendly people working here - front desk, shuttle drivers, breakfast manager, and housekeeper. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to other travelers

    « GREAT HOTEL WITH OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE »

    We got an immediate feeling of welcome and the 2 people at the front desk were so kind. We had a reservation booked, but the young man checking us in asked us what floor we wanted! We chose the 3rd floor, which was the top floor. (The previous night we stayed in Page, AZ and we had a first-floor room and it was noisy all thru the night.) They started looking something up on the internet for us that we were wondering about. Also recommended their favorite places for dinner with a lot of enthusiasm. The front of the hotel is so pretty with the fountain and the flowers and other plants. Our room was a standard hotel room with 2 queen-sized, but very comfortable and CLEAN. The pool and hot tub were well-maintained, clean and very nice. And then in the morning we were able to take our delicious continental breakfast out to a table by the pool. It was perfect.

    Please don't ever get a room by the exit doors or near the grilling area. The exit doors was used all night until the wee hours of the morning; slamming and loud people coming in and out. And then, people were grilling outside just below our room. They had a great time laughing and drinking, but at the expense of our sleep. We had just drove in from San Diego and we were dead tired.

    « clean, but way overpriced »

    I stayed one night in this hotel right when I was moving to Tempe. The hotel was clean, but the price was ridiculous. We paid $170 (before tax) for one night for a standard room with 2 queen beds. Most of the hotels in this area didn't accept pets, so we had very few options. We were also late checking out as we didn't arrive in Tempe until after 3 am and hotel staff was very rude about it.

    Stayed here in March 2016 for a week, the rooms were very quiet compared to some places. Seemed like the breakfast area could be expanded as it was hard most mornings to find a place to sit, but overall there was a large variety, except they were lacking fruit, mainly only had apples. The shuttle they offer is a great advantage as there are only a couple places close enough that you would want to walk too.

    This is a very nice hotel. The management of this hotel accommodated our group in every way. We were able to gather mornings and evenings on their patio, we grilled, it was great. My room was adjacent to the pool and patio and never were we disturbed by any goings on outside. We had a king sized bed which was soft, but comfortable as was the entire room. Breakfast was better than you would expect for the venue. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to other. We did not bring the cats on this trip as we flew, but i did hear other pets there, which is always a plus in my book.

    My Husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. The location is great if you plan on spending time in the Phoenix area. However, if you are going to visit other areas of AZ I don't recommend it. We traveled to Sedona, Wickenburg, Prescotf, Camp Verde and Casa Grande. Every day when we returned to the hotel we got stuck in rush hour traffic afternoons from (3-7pm). Morning rush hour (6-9pm). If you are staying in Phoenix it's within walking distance to the outlet mall and several chain restaurants. The daily breakfast provides many selections including hot items like eggs and sausage. The pool is clean and just large enough but didn't seem warm enough. The rooms are quiet and clean, nicely decorated and the beds are very comfortable. They offer a shuttle that will take you to surrounding restaurants and the Mall. Would definitely recommend.

    I can not figure out why this is a "Plus" hotel andor how its #8 out of 47 in Tempe... this place needs a face lift. Its old, old furnishings, crapy carpet and not even a desk in the room. There is a flat screen TV on the mall the most modern thing in the room. The batroom is eh - the granet counter is nice - I guess the bath isn't to bad but the rooms have old hard beds and cheep covers. The AC in the room is bearly cool. I've staying in PHX before an this is the crappiest I've expereenced yet. Only here because work booked it without asking where I wanted to stay. Next time, it wont be here. But maybe the rooms are cheep - they would need to be really cheep for me to come again.

The new, first day, manager offered 10% off and 1000 points to stay and apologized saying there are 9 rooms like this one that will be renovated and she hopes we will return.

It's great if u do not have a car because the mall is right across the street. The issue I had is I left a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses there. I called two hours after I left and they said they were not there but to call housekeeping in the morning as they had left for the day. I called at 8 am and they said housekeeping was not in till 9 and they would call me. They called and said no glasses. I was very disappointed as I just left and know I left them there. .. .. I had read someone had something stolen from room as well ( no safe). I realize this was my fault but usually if u call right away, the hotel will give u your stuff back. Just don't leave anything is my advice. The area is not as good as right downtown Tempe. The breakfast was average but good enough for us. I probably would of rated it better if my glasses would of been returned.

    « Has It's Pros and Cons »

    This is the second year that we've stayed here for Spring Training baseball. Last year this property was on point. This year I wonder if there's been a management change. The Pros: It's close to Diablo Stadium, Arizona Mills Mall and downtown Tempe. The staff here is absolutely wonderful, friendly and efficient. Check in and other requests have been great. The Cons: Our mattress had no hint of padding. It was hard and you could feel the springs underneath (squeaky Springs at that !) The whole room looked like it had been abused: a big dent in the refrigerator, some weird discoloration on the wallpaper, and our tub looks like it has a horrible disease! The free breakfast is fine; but the breakfast area is extremely understaffed. There's one, poor lady trying to keep up with a sold out hotel of hungery people. The food and coffee was always running out with super long waits for it to be replenished. Yesterday we sat in the patio area after our baseball game and the tables hadn't been cleaned from breakfast. If you stay here request a room in the pool side. There's a big 10-fan condenser unit on the other side of the hotel that is on constantly. I think this is our last stay here mainly due to the bed quality.

    « Good choice for airport pre-departure »

    This is not really an "airport hotel"," but is close enough for that purpose with their shuttle service. We returned our rental car the evening of our stay and called for the shuttle to get back to the hotel from the airport. We then used the shuttle the next morning to get to our flight. Other than for a bit of a wait on the pickup, all went well, as the hotel is less than 15 minutes away. Other than that, the hotel is acceptable but not remarkable. We only had one meal to get while there, and the Claim Jumper is within walking distance and a good choice. The Wifi in the room was sufficient to watch Netflix on our tablet, which is not the case in may hotels. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was very quiet.

    Maybe because this was Spring Training season the prices were hiked up. We paid $200.00 a night for for a room I would expect to pay $129.00. The rooms were old and out dated. The soap and shampoo dispensers really turned me off, I guess they are trying to save money on the little bottles and bars of soap. But it really looked tacky. The mini refrigerator froze all our items even after i adjusted it numerous times. The leg was broken off of the refrigerator and someone put a piece of wood under it, but it still wobbled back and forth. The room was clean and comfortable, and centrally located to all the ballparks, but not worth $200..00 a night

    The hotel messed up on my reservation. I booked a room with a king but they gave me a room with 2 queens instead. I showed them my reservation with the king room but they were unable to accommodate my request because I booked through a third party website and they were at capacity for the weekend. Also, the hotel is due for a remodel. The bed was super squeaky and uncomfortable. The rooms and carpet look fairly run down and it's kind of in an off-putting location. I won't be staying here again. The free breakfast was pretty disappointing too but I guess you can't really complain much for something that's free.

On the next day I put the ball in a drawer and the only person who was in my room was a housekeeper. Needless to say it was stolen.

Many breakfast items were not stocked. Overall it was a good stay.

    « This is a pretty decent place to stay »

    So we were there for the PAC 12 college wrestling championships (as observers). We brought our "significant Others' who would rather shop than watch sweaty guys wrestle. For us, we found the mattresses far too soft. It might be better for other so that's why I am not suggesting the mattresses were necessarily "bad". The morning breakfast was pretty decent, although the waffle makers did not work right for at least two days. We didn't sit around the pool, although we did see what appeared to be employee's children using the pool. They were dropped off at the front of the building, then walked around and got into the pool. They knew the pool maintenance man by first name. As with any children, they were loud. One girl that was staying in the motel wouldn't go in because of this. The place, overall, was very, very clean. I used the stairs a number of times to walk from the second to the first floor as it was quicker than waiting for the elevator. I noticed how clean the stairwell was, too. I had a couple of occasions to talk to the front desk staff and in each instance, they were very pleasant and responsive.

    « Overall unremarkable, which is actually just fine »

    I just spent 4 nights here for a business trip. Overall good, only a few negatives. A hotel like this is unlikely to be a unique experience, which is OK. I wanted clean, quiet, a comfortable bed, and a central location. This place gave me all of that. Room was great. No complaints. I was directly over the main entrance which worried me but I never experienced any noise. Breakfast is typical free hotel breakfast, nothing terrible, but also nothing of note. Staff was very helpful when I asked for suggestions on places to go running after my work day. I left just a few days ago, and truthfully I can't remember much about being there, which is probably OK. I think it means it fit my needs.

    « Good could be great »

    The hotel was clean, quiet, and the staff was friendly even though it was heavily booked with the start of spring baseball. The room: Clean and up to date. The bed was comfortable, however, the pillows were cheap (not soft foam) but chunks. Suggest having a few of the pillows be soft and lower profile. Great TV and channel choices with sterilized remote. Bathroom: Clean, spacious, good soft towels, good soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion supplies. Recommend to have coffee maker & ice bucket and supplies removed from the bathroom. Not a good sanitary place for food/drink items. No pen in room? Breakfast: marginal to good. Standard for this level of hotels. Just a few more items would make it better. Suggest: Real oatmeal with raisins, walnut, brown sugar offerings. (Small bowls) Real salsa (Costco?) & shredded cheese for the eggs. Fruit. Either supply chunks of fruit. Pineapple, grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, oranges etc, or more whole fruit. Bananas, oranges, grapes. Breads and pastries were fine. Coffee was better then most hotels. Suggest herbal tea added to choices. Juice machine good when working. Waffles great. Suggest: Tables be cleaned once awhile between use. (Reduce spread of germs) Most of them were dirty sticky after use. If this hotel and staff did these few things this hotel would be a 5 star rating.

    Stayed here an entire week for work, they picked my coworker and I up from the airport within 30 min of arriving. They took us to most of our destinations and gladly picked us up. The drivers had great personalities. My room was very clean and comfortable. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. The mall is only about a 10 minute walk so that was nice as well.

    BW Tempe is the best place to stay when in Phoenix. Close to the airport, excellent and timely shuttle service. Great breakfast and the most courteous staff! I highly recommend BW Tempe.

    « An Otherwise Excellent BW Experience With One BIg Flaw »

    I stay almost exclusively at Best Western Hotels. They seem to provide a very good cost/quality balance. The rooms are always very clean and quiet, the beds very comfortable, and the staff courteous, professional and helpful. What more could you ask for in a routine hotel stay? Unfortunately the normally great BW experience was marred during several recent stays at two area locations in Tempe and Mesa. Both have the worst pillows I've ever seen. Small, square(!), very lumpy and offering little support, they ruin an otherwise great sleep experience. I don't know the rationale for this selection, but they seem to be a case trying to do something on the cheap. Worse, being something a wee bit important if you're in the sleep business. The outcome is blatantly not in keeping with the rest of of a stay at Best Western hotels.

    « Helpful staff and comfy beds »

    Location ideal to explore further afield. We stayed on both parts of our trip, a total of 3 nights. Explored the mall Arizona Mall- super deals as outlets stores. The buffet breakfast is a must, really sets you up for the day. I had a later check out time given due to late departure time back to UK. Pool area nice but pool cold, hot tub a bonus. Shame we didn't get to sit in the sun and enjoy the area more. Too busy being busy. Tea and coffee in the lobby all day, a nice touch too.

    « Worked out Great for us »

    While traveling, decided to visit relatives and needed a place to stay for the night. Glad that we chose this place. Freeway easy to get to and easy to find. Free parking close to the entrance. Very large lobby and you front desk makes you feel comfortable. We choose Best Western lots of times but some of different than others. Also this was a BW Plus. This was different in a very good way. Price was right. Room was large size, clean, quiet, good pressure on the shower and bed was very comfortable - we slept great. Food in the morning was standard BW stuff - cereals, waffles you can make, burritos, yogurt, a little bit of fruit, juice, coffee. This one was good as there was plenty of seating (sometimes you are in a postage stamp sized room and most of the food is gone when you get there). Although there were lots of people at the hotel - it did not feel crowded. Food & coffee was replaced very regularly. Has a pool but we did not use it. Restaurants are close by and like I said, you can get to freeway fast to go places.

    « Staff Nice - Room Stunk »

    The staff was extremely nice, as we have grown to expect from our frequent stays at Best Western Plus hotels. However we made sure to reserve a non-smoking room, but the room was definitely a smoker's room. It was fine until we turned on the air, and then it smelled like people were in our room smoking.

    « Worst ever »

    I have stayed at this hotel for years & this stat was the worst ever. We stayed here this time to see our daughter who was being stationed out. The room was dirty with stains in the carpet. The carpet was wet that left a foul smell on my kids socks. The bathroom was dirty and disgusting. The tub was black and had hair dye stains on it. We placed towels on the bottom in order to shower. I did bring this to the front desk and they wanted to me us but my kids were already in bed. Front desk very concerned and friendly. It seems like they have just let this hotel go. Will never return!!!

    « My go-to place »

    When I'm looking for a hotel, I'm not interested in a luxury place or a place with a lot of fancy amenities; I want it to be clean, quiet, and close to things I'm going to be doing. The Best Western PLUS Tempe by the Mall fits the bill when I'm in the Phoenix-Tempe-Mesa area. I've never had any problems at this hotel; in fact, when I had some personal problems during a couple of stays, the staff has cheerfully done what they could to help resolve my difficulty. It's a modest place, but clean and quiet (in my experience), plus they offer a complimentary breakfast.

    Very close to the zoo, botanical gardens, and mall. Lots of good places to eat around this area. Rooms were very nice. Comfy beds. Nice and clean. Front desk staff were friendly.

    « Two nights - Disappointed - Will not return »

    Some of our family recently were transferred to Tempe, and with a new grandbaby on the way - we were searching for a place to stay when visiting since they live in a small apartment. The bad - 1) Unclean bathroom - someone's wiskers in bathroom sink at check-in 2) Poor temperature control - thermostat appears to control air conditioning blower only - we were very cold both mornings when in lower 40's outside. 3) The bed was too, too soft. 4) Noisy - even with my hearing aids removed - staff was shouting and making enough noise to wake us up around 5:30am, as well as other noise. 5) Safety issue in bathroom - walk-in shower with a very low threshold and a curtain with a 3-4 inch gap from the bottom allowed water to escape to tiled bathroom floor - no rug provided for slip protection. 6) Low water pressure/poor shower wand made shower challenging first day.. 7) Handle/lock on bathroom door difficult to operate and sticks. 7) At checkout - when issues were brought to desk staff's attention - I was told it was somehow Expedia's fault. The good - 1) Nice public areas 2) Plenty of parking 3) In room microwave and fridge 4) Good in-room wifi Unknown - 1) we didn't try the breakfast since we ate with our family both days.

    Stayed here for the CFP National Championship. The hotel is very clean and the staff was very friendly. We booked ahead on Booking.com and got checked into our room in only 2 or 3 min once we arrived. The rooms are spacious and clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean, water pressure wasn't and issue and overall it was a great hotel to stay at and I would definitely stay there again. The only downside was the free Wi-Fi was unbelievably bad and I ended up not using it. Just something to keep in mind!

    We enjoyed our 4 nights at this hotel. The place was kept extremely clean and the staff was great. The free breakfast was good though they need more than 2 waffle makers. THe furniture was a little dated in the room and the the mattresses were way too soft. Over all a nice visit

    « Better Quailty Needed »

    The hotel charged a fee without ever disclosing the charges prior to arrival. It was a $2.00 fee per day as the host said for ECO and all rooms pay that fee. So imagine what underhand amount that charge is a month. and you are not told about the fee until you arrive for check in, so if you cancel after six you will be charged a fee for vacation reservation after the required time. Shower leaked from the roof or either it was at the shower pipes in the room above. Bed slept good and house keeping was nice. Don't recommend to stay there unless you just want to be close to the mall.

    Check in went fine and the hotel apprearance was OK. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room seemed fine except that we had a problem connecting to the WIFI. Someone came to help us connect and they experienced some difficulty (had to go into the hallway to connect).

I would not rate this hotel as a PLUS and would likely not stay here again.
