We needed to stay on the west side near relatives. It is very expensive during Spring training. This was an excellent option. Very clean and quiet. Friendly staff and continental breakfast was provided. Rate was reasonable.

Room was nice. Not verybig but it was ok for the 2 of us, the shower was pretty small and not much water pressure. People at the desk were very nice and helpful. I was a little surprised that we had to pay $5.00 per day to park. We will stay there again. As a matter of fact we booked...

This property is located on the western campus of ASU. It is an independent property and very nice. The rooms were comfortable, the snacks were appreciated, and the staff went out of their way to make your stay perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

The property is not a conventional hotel. The entrance off the street is a little confusing and parking is very limited. But, other than those issues, the room was as good as most hotel rooms. The location is on one of Arizona State University's campus'. The breakfast was your average run-of-the-mill continental breakfasts served at many other hotels.

Setup like a resort (it is a converted military installation with barracks now run by ASU) It was super clean and largely modern with a fair breakfast. Super location and service was very friendly. The rooms have small TV's but modern (new) carpet, drapes, beds, linens,. It is kind of hard to locate..... even with Google Maps. We circled the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. My only concern was the lack of parking spots and having to pay for them. They are only free Fri & Sat. The free snacks, drinks and breakfast to go were great. You do have to weave around the ASU business campus a bit to find the lodge, but well worth it.

All the employees of this establishment are wonderful caring people. From the rooms to the Pantry amazing clean and comfortable, if I would be forced to say anything negative about my stay it would be the daily charge for parking that seemed a little odd for a hotel you are staying at.

We were looking for a reasonable but nice place to stay for a weekend of spring training. Through TripAdvisor we stumbled on to The Thunderbird Executive Inn....what a find! Compared to other local hotels this place was a steal. It is located on the campus of a Global Management graduate school associated with ASU. The hotel and campus are very...

We had a late flight so we were checking in after 1am. The man at the desk was great and helpful and changed our room to first floor as we are both seniors. The breakfast was good with many little extras to take along for snacks for the day. Room was spacious and comfortable. This made our first trip to...

My husband and I loved this place! Great for a spring training game getaway. Room was clean, spacious, very dark at night (night light in bathroom nice touch), comfortable king bed. It's located on a campus so nice grounds to walk. Really cool pub/restaurant with seating at the bar inside or outside. Food was very good, great selection of tap...
