The location is great and I believe the owner is a Steelers fan, which I dug. The heated pool is always a plus, especially on the (surprisingly) chilly day I visited. The staff seemed a little frigid to me, but I don't really expect much from a Super 8, and they seem to run a tight ship. East of the hotel, Van Buren is a total wasteland, especially for travelers, so this block signifies the edge of downtown coolness. There's plenty of parking and the light rail passes nearby, but if you don't have a car, expect to walk a good deal.

First off, you can only enter this hotel from Van Buren. The exterior does look a little run down, but the rooms inside are surprisingly nice and modern. I especially loved the large sink here. And I could probably lay on that big bed all day long. In my room, the lampshade had fallen off. But that's a relatively minor complaint. Plus, you get free breakfast. The location is just outside of downtown and for the area, the rates are good.

I was pleasantly surprised by this Super 8, which is just on the edge of downtown Phoenix. From the outside, it looks like a standard budget lodge. But the room I saw was much more modern than I had anticipated. The exterior of the building, which is a little drab, caused me to think the rooms would be pretty dated. I was surprised to see a nice, modern room with plenty of space to stretch out. The bathroom was stocked with lotion, shampoo and conditioner, which I wasn't expecting. The pool is okay, but there was nothing particularly appealing like nice seating or shade. Still, the location is excellent if you need or want to be by downtown Phoenix, but you don't want to shell out money for one of the big, business-class hotels. They also have a free continental breakfast. I've been a budget traveler on many occasions, and even a little fresh fruit and cereal is very much appreciated when you don't want to have to go out to grab breakfast.

The Super 8 is pretty standard as far as motels go. Unfortunately, the manager didn’t let me take any pictures, so you’ll have to use your imagination. Again, pretty standard. Each room comes with a HD TV, microwave and miniature refrigerator, so there’s a place to keep your leftovers from any restaurants you might take in while in downtown. The beds felt nice and soft. The Super 8 does have a pool, but when I visited it looked pretty…murky, not sure if I’d want to swim in it but the option is available. Although not in the heart of downtown Phoenix, the Super 8 is just a quick car ride or taxi away from the city’s downtown attractions. If you have kids, I’d recommend checking out the Arizona Science Center, which is entertaining enough for both adults and children alike, and Chase field is just a couple miles away.
