Pros: Staff was super accommodating and clearly happy to be working at the Moxy. I inadvertently booked two non refundable rooms and they electednnot to charge me for the first. The entertainment available was really fun - Retro games like Jenna and Rocke Em Sock Em Robots, Barrel of Monkeys, puzzles, cards, foosball and pool were all available - not just tv. Lots of families, groups of friends and couples were playing games bs tv, or out st the pool. The elevator was set up like an old Polaroid photo booth with props for selfies
Cons: It was confusing to find the check in desk at first since it isn't set up to be obvious given the construction fence on the neighboring property and the parking lot entrance. We actually walked in and thought we were at the bar then walked around them came back to ask at the bar (really the central food and beverage area) and found out we were there all along. The building is long with not many stories (3ish?) and if you get an upper story room at the opposite end from the bar you need to take your bags up an elevator at the bar end then walk to your room then go get your car and move it. The spaces closest to the bar end are packed, so you have to hoof it to get to check in as well. Once you check in you understand optimal parking and that it's hard to get a good space, so after that it's more manageable, whether by expectation or parking karma.

Pros: This is BY FAR the hippest, coolest hotel I have EVER stayed at. They had a selfie-vator! (which is basically a photo booth with props in the elevator!) The staff was amazing - you check in at the bar! The open floor lobby was beautiful and somewhere you wanted to hang out. The drinks were delicious...they have games and huge tvs and coaches to lounge at in the lobby. My teen daughter and I played Scrabble and Pinball and just hang out down there - for fun - with other people (which is crazy to think about when you have a grumpy, moody teenager!!!) The ppol area was small but nice with free cabanas. The room was funky and well decorated - no closets but lots of hanging space.
Cons: The hotel was so much fun it was LOUD, crazy party scene loud. Our drunk neighbors were ROWDY and I think the lack of carpets made the rooms much louder. We called the front desk for help but the sound did not go away.

Pros: Wonderful staff, the courtesy of a late checkout, stowage of my bags and an Uber to the airport was greatly appreciated!
Cons: Did not care for the "ironing room". Would've preferred an iron in my room.

Pros: I stay here frequently as we enjoy the proximity to ASU. The fun atmosphere in the lobby is always a plus and the complimentary drinks are great too. We love the guitar in most rooms and the comfort of the beds and super clean smelling linens. We also love the bikes for use.
Cons: As mentioned, I stay here frequently. This was the first time that the carpet in the hallways looked worn and dirty. The floors in our room had not been cleaned there were multiple scuff marks on them. The shower doors would not stay closed from either side and we had to wedge a wash cloth in lest we get water all over. It would also be nice to have a shelf or holder in the shower for personal items such as facial cleanser or a razor. We did not encounter much staff, and although the girl at check in was kind, she was on hold with the phone to her ear the whole time. I appreciated her checking me in rather than have me wait however, there were two bartenders who could have waited on hold so that she could properly address me. As well, when I returned to the hotel after being out until 9:30 pm, there was not 1 single parking space open. I had to go inside and inquire and was told I could park in the fire lane overnight which worried me in case I would get towed. However there is no other parking in the area and I had bags and my daughter with me and went ahead and parked there and had no problems thankfully.
