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...

Hotel was affordable, clean, laid back, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the free snacks and refreshments all day everyday, and the cool looking trees near the pool! Queen sized bed was HUGE! Would stay here again...

A hidden gem. What a wonderful surprise how nice everything was. Totally exceeded my expectations. Friendly staff. A bonus touch was the Lounge where you can find complimentary beverages (hot & cold), snacks, soups, cookies, candy, nuts, etc. Room was spacious and very comfortable.

My experience at the hotel was good. The people there greeted us and then we got the keys. Our room that we stayed in was room 310. The service was great! The hotel was hard to find at first but then we had a guard direct us to the hotel.

nice quiet hotel with friendly staff. It's located in a strange area, on the grounds of a collage so looks a little mis-leading and questionable, but it ended up being a great hotel. I would recommend to others.

Our room was very nice. Trying to find the hotel is a bit challenging but if you read the signs you'll eventually find it. And the lady that greeted us at check-in has worked there too long not very unfriendly. Parking is unique you may have a little walk to your room.

During several calls to the front desk personnel for directions (when GPS failed to help) did anyone say they were "on" the ASU campus. We had a security guard take us to the Inn. He said this happens all the time. Let's not forget that in making my reservation I was calling Hampton Inn. They also did not mention that...
