You know, for a budget hotel on Van Buren, this place wasn't half-bad. Sure, it's an eyesore from the outside, but I appreciated the palm trees in the walkways the (shockingly) bright and clean rooms. Most of the hotels on this strip have nothing more than a coffee station and a rack of outdated brochures, but this Travelodge serves an edible breakfast and even provides a business center. (Well, there's one computer at a tiny desk). The place felt cheery to me, as if the management didn't know the neighborhood's M.O., and that made me smile. There's no pool, but there's a coffeemaker and mini-fridge in every room, so at least you can drink yourself asleep or awake, depending on the time of day. True to its name, City Center is also located downtown, close to all the cool stuff Phoenix has to offer.

This is very much a budget hotel near downtown Phoenix. It doesn't take long before you realize that the City Center Downtown has not been remodeled in a very, very long time. The rooms have an odd layout and feel small - maybe it's bulky furniture that dates from 20 or so years ago. You won't find anything resembling a modern, flat panel TV screen around here. These are the old CRT tube TVs. The carpets are worn, the bedspreads look old, and the decor is not really cohesive or matching in any real sense. However, all this aside, the rooms looked pretty clean to me - and that's what really matters, right? Plus, there's free wifi and a complimentary continental breakfast. I have to say that the staff seems very friendly and accommodating, and that goes a long way. If you don't mind older furnishings, you will definitely save money by staying here. Plus, it has a cool 1950s era motel sign, which adds some retro charm to the hotel.

Best West Inn is a decent enough place for the solo traveler trying to save money. It's a bit of a dive in a not so great neighborhood, but it's cheap and comfortable enough. You check out the TV remote from the front desk, and you might want to bring your own towel and cup.

There is a refrigerator and microwave in each room. The WiFi is free and decent.
