Poor
Pros: The decor was fine - very boutique.
Cons: None of my expectations were met for a 4 star hotel. I had to see a chiropractor after sleeping on the bed. The staff was unprofessional. My room faced frat houses. I was strong armed to pay for parking. Loud noises from engineering kept me awake.

Good
Pros: Convenient location near ASU. Ample, relatively inexpensive parking nearby. Hotel room was pretty inexpensive, too.

Good
Pros: I liked the staff was friendly and very knowledgeable.

Poor
Pros: This was by far the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The concept is really dumb but I understand how some may Luke it. But the furniture doesn’t even work and it’s cheap and wobbly and doesn’t fi
Cons: Hated everything. So cheap looking and never had my room cleaned. The trash was small and never taken out. The gym was the only thing open and nothing worked and they allowed more than one person in the gym at a time which was smaller than the hotel room.

Very Good
Pros: Proximity to university. Clean rooms.
Cons: I was charged for car parking initially even though I did not have a car. It was later corrected. The person who checked me in was not wearing a mask. The other front desk representatives did however wear masks.

Very Poor
Pros: Decor was fun and carpet was nice.
Cons: We were stuck in the elevator for almost an hour. They didn¿t put an out of order sign on elevator. Unbelievable! No shower water pressure and only hot water for shower. Room was overly warm and air conditioner couldn¿t even begin to keep room cool

Poor
Pros: The decor was fine - very boutique.
Cons: None of my expectations were met for a 4 star hotel. I had to see a chiropractor after sleeping on the bed. The staff was unprofessional. My room faced frat houses. I was strong armed to pay for parking. Loud noises from engineering kept me awake.

Poor
Pros: First night in they put us in an ADA room that wasn¿t ADA compliant. The room had used toilet paper left under the bed, blood and urine stains on the mattress and comforter. A drawer that wouldn¿t work and lights that didn¿t work.
Cons: Yes, the guy at the front desk almost got our rental towed by giving us the wrong parking info and not giving us a parking pass upon check in. Dirty toilet paper was left, bugs, and blood and urine stains on the bed. Never cleaned by room service.

Good
Pros: Convenient location near ASU. Ample, relatively inexpensive parking nearby. Hotel room was pretty inexpensive, too.
Cons: Rooms are small and a bit dated. Other hotels in the chain are nicer and merit four stars; I would put this one at 3 or 3.5. I could hear the elevator through the wall for my entire stay.

Good
Pros: I liked the staff was friendly and very knowledgeable.
Cons: The hotel was dated and there was trash left in my room. The shelf in the closet would have fallen down if I needed to put anything on it. It was definitely not what I would consider a four star hotel.

Poor
Pros: This was by far the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The concept is really dumb but I understand how some may Luke it. But the furniture doesn’t even work and it’s cheap and wobbly and doesn’t fi
Cons: Hated everything. So cheap looking and never had my room cleaned. The trash was small and never taken out. The gym was the only thing open and nothing worked and they allowed more than one person in the gym at a time which was smaller than the hotel room.
