Please recommend SAFE budget accommodations in the Phoenix area

21 y.o. son and his friend are going to spring training for a bit in March. As I understand it, they'll spend a day in Glendale and a day in Talking Stick. They may spend some time visiting with other friends at ASU. They will have a car, and are looking for true budget accommodations (max $100/nt.) somewhere in between, or simply convenient to all.

Where would you suggest looking that meets their budget but will also be safe?

Thanks.

I have a friend who has happily and safely stayed at the Hostelling International hostel in Phoenix several times. However, I would recommend getting a 3* or better hotel by bidding on Priceline - check www.betterbidding.com .

WillTravel, I would use Priceline, but I need to guarantee 2 beds.

Maybe use Hotwire, then, and book for 3 people (or choose an option with bed choice). Also check TravelZoo and Groupon.

There is a HI Hostel at 1029 N. 9th St. http://www.hihostels.com/
Never stayed at this one but most HI Hostels are great with a dorm bed for less than $30 night. Nearly all have a kitchen.

Got the Sheraton Tempe for $50 via Hotwire last week; phoned for 2 beds, no problem at all.

Late Feb. However, they usually have a "sale of the day" thing.

They may not be interested but tell them they should see Taliesin West in Scottsdale.
