Mark always provides great service when I'm over here visiting my daughter at ASU. I've been staying here for a couple years before they changed the name. It's the best deal and location when visiting the Downtown area. I have known Mark since then and I always have the best stay when here. I will continue to stay here when...

Nice little motel, for a reasonable price, walking distance to Convention Center for a fraction of the price of big hotels. The owners are the nicest people on earth, always available to help and assist you.

Our son found this place on hotels.com. After checking TripAdvisor, the ratings looked pretty good! What the hell people?!?! We walked into the lobby and smelled curry that was trying to be masked by cheap air fresheners. We checked in, went up to the room and couldn't believe it. It was a tiny room, with a bed spread that looked...

As we drove up to the hotel a homeless person with a dog was camped out in the parking lot. The bathroom was clean but the bedside table had many months of dust accumulation on the bottom shelf. The bedspread was cheap and not clean. We don't expect a lot from the brand, but for more than $100/day, I think...

We had a early appointment downtown and needed to stay somewhere close overnight. Most of the other more upscale hotels wanted between $180 and $250 plus tax . We decided to take a chance on a less expensive one and chose the Rodeway. We were a little dismayed by the outside appearance but pleased with the friendly welcoming manager and...

My wife and I stayed here one night before an early PHX flight, We chose this property to avoid freeways in morning rush hour traffic. This is everything a budget choice should be.

We stayed here because it was in walking distance from the Talking Stick Resort Arena (.8 of a mile). Easier to walk then have to worry about driving downtown and parking. It was also very reasonable ($75). Hotel was very clean (one of the cleanest I've stayed at), friendly staff. Breakfast wasn't much, but we hit the McDonald's down the...

This is the place for clean, safe, lowest price, great service in its part of downtown Phoenix. Liked the well lighted street and parking. This newly remodeled Choice motor-inn felt more like an upscale brand than I had thought of Rodeway previously, nice... now I'll consider more of same. And yes, would return here. Congrats to Mark, Manager!

This is one of the cheapest hotels I have stayed. The bathroom is extremely small. The air conditioner is noisy. The parking lot is small. The location is okay, it is close to the convention center.

Stayed for six nights, room near the front on Van Buren was noisy (Saturday night) but we moved to a room further away and had no problems. Room was clean.
