I have family that lives here in Phoenix and so I come here often. We came across this hotel and the price and location was perfect for us. We didn’t even need to have a car this time.

I had to travel to Phoenix for a couple of nights for some training at the end of April. I found Hotel 502 to be only a few miles from where my training was. It had good reviews (much better than some places which were much more expensive) so I decided to stay here. I'm very glad that I did!...

Hotel is very clean. The room's floor was concrete with two big rugs, it didn't bother us since we only slept and showered there. Plus it made the room smell fresh.
