In the heart of Tempe.

There’s a lot in the surrounding area for hotel residents to enjoy, but the best reason to stay here is its location to Arizona State University. The campus is directly across the street, making it ideal for catching a game or helping students move in.

Really great and positive staff.

Negative Reviews

Air conditioning units are a big negative.

The guestrooms at this hotel are often stuffy due to air conditioning units that are functioning poorly; if at all. These noisy units are also placed near the guestroom beds, which can be an issue for light sleepers.

Guestrooms are small but adequate.

Graduate Tempe is not an ideal hotel for travelers planning to be in the area long-term. This is because the private rooms are small and filled with a bunch of furnishings that guests will stub their toe on.

More needs to be included in the rates.

A stay at this hotel is a bit costly and higher than what travelers typically pay for a room. For this high rate, many guests are surprised that things such as parking and breakfast are not included in the price and cost extra.
