    It is good place to stay one night on a transfer. The pool was nice.

    the air-condition was very loud. Could not leave it on at night.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    The front desk staff were polite and helpful.

    The hotel itself was very below what I expected it to be. The online photos of the room were not accurate at all and there was a run down feeling to the place. The staff themselves were trying to do their best but the place was old and not up to what I would think of as 'Howard Johnson" status.

    Location to the light rail transit

    The service was very poor and nothing worked. The safe would not lock, the door key had to be reprogrammed 6 times in 2 days. We went out shopping and found the maid had left our door open after cleaning it.The internet did not work. We were dropped off by the shutle bus in a parking lot behind the hotel and a gate had to be opened for us to get out. When we left the hotel, we had to wait in that same parking lot to be picked up. Needless to say, we have booked in a more reputable place for our trip home. Howard Johnson used to be noted for quality but that has changed immensely.

    Location, old but clean and had all necessary if spartan facilities and services. we stayed one night before our flight. We were able entaeasily find place to eat. room was secure, we were able to print boarding passes and had continental breakfast in the morning. It met our needs.

    Shakey door. outdated bathroom.

    The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable....

    I dudn't like having to wait in a deserted parking garage for twenty minutes at 4.30 in the morning waiting for the shuttle bus. Also this hotel is overpriced for what it is....They would not give me my CAA discount...

    Close to airport with shuttle service. Good to over night. Good breakfast.

    It was fine for its purpose for quick stay.

    Free Airport shuttle. Connection to Downtown with light-rail is fine.

    the Naming of the Hotel is quite funny: now, what is it: Airport or Downtown? Let me tell you: it is airport! he light-rail takes 15 minutes to Downtown, You reach the light-rail walking over a corporate parking-lot which is kind of uncanny late at night...

    Location the facility was poor. The facility was old the air conditioning workerd poorly at best and the sheetes and bed clothes were tired.

    Front desk people were very personable

    Shuttle from airport did not say Howard Johnson; Spot2 bus was not fully understood. No elevator to 2nd floor makes carrying luggage a real chore for a 62 year old woman

  • Group of friends

    We were transiting Phoenix and the location near the airport was ideal

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Convenience, and location were excellent for airport stop over.

    Air condition a little loud

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We were not far from the airport. Our reason staying there was to be shuttled to & from the airport. It worked out great. The hotel is a older place but very clean and searved our purpose well.

    We didn't realize that we would have to pay for our car to be parked there for the 5 days. It wasn't that much and it still worked out for us. We liked the convenience and location for the airport shuttle.
