About

#8 of 56 hotels in Tempe
You'll find us serendipitously situated across the street from Sun Devil central - the famed Arizona State University. We are also located within walking distance to all of the bustling Mill Avenue stops and shops, as well as the Tempe Town Lake action. You can take in "A" Mountain from your campus view room - after all, why not observe perfection from every angle. The pool scene will add just the chill you're in town for! Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate - get ready to be inspired.

BIG shout-out to graduate hotels. Our home air conditioning went out in the middle of a hot summer day. Graduate Tempe took me, my wife, and our 2 dogs in without question and right away. Rachel at the front desk was AMAZING, kind, fun, and very sympathetic of our situation. Our stay ended up being an extra day and they were totally accommodating. The room was lovely, the decor was cozy and comfortable, the air was cold and Graduate totally saved us. Thank you so much! Highly recommend Graduate Tempe or any Graduate property you might come across in your travels.

Outdated hotel. No towels, no shampoo, no wash cloths, partially dirty room, no laundry bag. Over priced, required paid parking. No restaurants or bars on-site. Only vending machines. Over priced snacks and water.

The employees were the star of this hotel, everyone was friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to help us out. We stayed at the graduate for a girls getaway and to meet up with friends who live in scottsdale. The hotel isn't 'close' to anything but the university, so it's perfect for campus visits and activities! We definitely could have walked to Mill Ave shops and restaurants if the street car was running OR if it wasn't the middle of July and 110 degrees haha! Ubers were $10 and 10 minutes to Old Town Scottsdale or downtown phoenix so that was where we ended up! Compared to other Graduates, this is an older property, wouldn't recommend for long stays. But okay for quick trips, there's a medium size pool and a hot tub. The restaurant wasn't open due to COVID but the menu and decor looked good. The wifi worked great. the beds were comfy. The AC is very close to the head of the bed, so I wouldn't recommend for families of four or someone's face is going to be <12" from the unit. The balcony only had one chair, we pulled out a stool for two people to sit.
