"Our visit to Phoenix college"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 15, 2014
A TripAdvisor Member | 
The hotel is really convenient and close to the airport and we bought our stay through Expedia for just $47 dollars so I didn't expect the Ritz Carlton. Continental Breakfast comes with the room and it is your basic bagels, muffins, cereal, juice and coffee. If you are a big breakfast eater Denny's is located just on the other side of the parking lot. I was there with my son visiting a college, so it was two guys. Wasn't concerned about safety that much, but I would of been comfortable staying there with my wife as well. I do think she might have an issue that all the rooms face to the parking lot and there are no key coded secure hallways like a newer hotel, but for my son and me it was no big deal. They have free Wi-Fi which was good because I had some work to do and there was a small work desk. Beds were comfortable as were the pillows. The room was clean. On a 1-10 scale of 10 being best I would give it a 6+. Again, our needs were pretty simple. We needed somewhere inexpensive to crash, and we wanted a place with free breakfast and close to the airport as we had an early morning flight. You can pretty much go from Tempe to the northern part of Phoenix in a half hour, so proximity isn't a big deal like LA. I would stay there again.

"LaQuinta - Sky Harbor"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 15, 2014
Flatly | Dorado, Puerto Rico
Staff efficient and very helpful. Rooms clean and well furnished. Breakfast was adequate, but could have had more healthy choices. We were upgraded because we are gold members which gave us extra room and amenities. The closest restaurant was Denny's; others required driving as this is an industrial area. The hotel sits off the main highway so you have to look closely when you exit the freeway. Free shuttle to the airport, but it doesn't operate 24-7 so hours of operation need to be checked to use it.

"Close to airport"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 6, 2014
Teresa B | Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Needing an airport hotel in Phoenix, we chose La Quinta Inn Phoenix Sky Harbor. The rate was decent, and the room was more than adequate. They must have renovated recently, because the carpet, linens and furnishings, including flat screen TV were all new . The room was spotless. The girl at the desk was very sweet, and had a google map to the airport at her fingertips. The rate includes a self serve breakfast of waffles, hard boiled eggs, toast, yogurt, fruit, etc. This is not a hotel to spend a lot of time at, but for one night before a flight- it's pretty good. I would stay here again.

"Overbooked; No Room Upon Arrival Despite Reservation"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 4, 2014
SNGraham | Chicago, IL
We reserved a room for one night's stay at this particular La Quinta about 10 days beforehand. One day before our planned arrival, we confirmed the room with La Quinta by phone and advised that we would be a late check-in because our flight was due to land late. The reservation agent promised that she would note our late arrival in their system so that the room would not be given away. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told by the front desk that they were oversold. There were no rooms left in the hotel. The hotel had made arrangements for us to stay at a nearby Quality Inn instead. La Quinta picked up the tab at Quality Inn (or however that works between hotels) but it was a disappointing experience all around. I don't understand why were allowed to make a reservation in the first place or why we were not advised about the oversold situation until we arrived at the hotel. There were opportunities to tell us about the overselling of the hotel when we spoke to them the week before our trip and the day before our arrival.

The staff was not surprised when I wanted to see the room before checking in, nor when I returned to the desk and said I was cancelling. The room had been cleaned, but was frayed. The premises are dirty, there are broken down parts in the elevator and all around as I made my way to the room. I generally like La Quinta, and it's the first La Quinta I've seen that's in such bad shape.
