University Inn & Suites, Tempe, United States of America
Boutique-style rooms in a roadside inn-style motel
Booked room w/o realizing it was a roadside-style motel where rooms open to outside walkway, but it worked out. Room door had updated card keypad, and a little "alarm"/tone that sounded when it was opened. Outside is nondescript and could use some updating, but room was pleasantly remodeled. No amenities. Small parking lot, careful of the overhang outside the office if driving a tall vehicle; larger/taller vehicles should enter from the side street. Beautiful mural on the back of the building. Noise: Walls & windows are not well insulated; noise from Mill Street is excessive at night from cars and motorcycles that race by with loud/modified exhausts. Rooms: Have a very boutique-style to them with updated finishes and decorations. Like a boutique hotel, the rooms are also on the small side. The bathroom had a vessel sink that left no counter space for toiletry items. Shower was nice with a rainfall-style shower head; relaxing, but not much water pressure. For me the bed was too soft, but that's a personal preference. Rooms were fairly clean. Fabric headboards could use some dusting around the bottom near the mattress, and there was a large stain on the sheet when covers were pulled back. Check-in/-out: Staff were really pleasant. Stored bag in private office while I explored before check-in. If you have to check-out early in the morning, do it the night before as there is no one at the desk. They'll print/email a receipt and you just lock your keys in the room.

Very convenient, clean and the staff was nice.
The hotel is clearly an oldie, but its clear that it has been well taken care of and the updates in the rooms are very nice. The location of this place was ideal. Will be staying here again.

We stayed here on our last night of an Arizona trip because it is close to the airport and we enjoy Mill Avenue. This is an old style motel with very nice updated rooms. I gave it an average rating on condition only because I could see they had roof issues, the room was very nice and the people working the office were great.

Clean rooms, good location, occasionally noisy.
Good, clean rooms. Good location. Outside-facing rooms make for a noisy environment.
