Hotel 502 has basic accomodations and free breakfasts. The latter varied only when the one cereal dispenser emptied and was not refilled; besides the two cereal offerings with milk and sweeteners, it consisted of scrambled eggs, link sausages, waffles one makes using self-service equipment, apple juice, and coffee or tea during the eight days that I stayed. My upgraded room...

I love Hotel502... great to be a part of the creative upgrades to the common areas and the support of us "locals", the artists to get it done! Great poolside fun, close to Melrose dining and shopping, and just a light rails ride to downtown or Sky Harbor!

My family of four stayed overnight recently. Considering this place was recommended to us by a friend who stays here on a regular basis, that person’s credibility is now in serious question. Truly, save your sanity and book a different hotel. This place is merely an outdated relic dressed in a slick Art Deco paint job. Andy Warhol-inspired hallway paintings...

When we first pulled in, I had to make sure the navigation system had sent us to the right place. The place was lit in green out front or was otherwise dark. I went in to the lobby to make sure it was where we were suppose to be . . . it was and the young lady behind the...

The check in process and price was good... $66 for one night so I expected nothing fancy, but at least clean. We got to our floor and it smelled so strongly of cigarette smoke and weed. Our room was non smoking since I have bad allergies. The size of the room was good and had everything we needed but the...

We arrived in the evening and the hotel and grounds were not well lit. Very few guests made the place feel deserted. We insisted on a renovated room per others reviews...but ours left much to be desired and just did not feel clean. I did not feel safe staying here...the drunks and passed out vagrants lying in the street made...
