Located within easy walking distance of restaurants, markets, shops, and the University of Arizona in a safe neighborhood filled with beautifully restored homes, the Rose Adobe Inn offers an unparalleled experience for the academic, the business person, families or the lone traveler.

Thank you for your kind comments about the Adobe Rose. The Inn does enjoy a great location - close to UA, the new streetcar which takes guests downtown in a matter of minutes, restaurants, attractions, hiking and the list goes on. I pleased that you noticed our efforts to be "green." Our soaps and shampoos are environment friendly and also... More

I really wanted to like these people. They had seemed so nice in our early communications. But when I had to cancel my reservation the day before my arrival due to a serious medical emergency, the owner charged me for the full 4 nights, citing his cancellation policy requiring at least 14 days in advance, a standard I couldn't possibly...

A couple of thoughts on your review. As you have never stayed at the Adobe Rose Inn, the notation in your review stating that you stayed in November, 2014, is not accurate. Therefore, you cannot rate the value of your stay or the service you received as you cancelled you reservation and could not have experienced our service and determine... More

The breakfast was decent, the coffee lousy, and the room was pretty cramped. Not at all what we expected and, needless to say, won't be returning... On our next trip we will go to a name brand hotel, get twice the room for half the price.

Thank you for your review of the Adobe Rose Inn. It is much appreciated, but confusing. It is unfortunate that you did not bring your comments to the inn manager, who could have resolved your situation. When asked separately by the inn manager and the owner if you enjoyed your stay, you replied that everything was fine. More

It was delightful to have the two of you as our guests. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Inn's tranquil setting and had a time to just relax and unwind in a peaceful place. It was an honor to have a veteran stay with us on Veteran's Day. Again - thank you for your service to the USA. More

The Adobe Rose Inn was a great experience. We were impressed with the location of it, just peaceful surroundings. It is located in the historic Sam Hughes neighbourhood in Central Tucson, just two blocks east of the University of Arizona (UA) and not too far from the new Tucson Streetcar. Marion and Jim Hook were most gracious and kind...and the... More

Thank you for your kind words about the Adobe Rose Inn. Move-in week at UA is hectic and we're glad to be a restful place where you can relax after a long day. Now that we are only a few blocks from the streetcar, you can get to downtown Tucson without the hassle of driving or parking. We look forward... More

For my first two nights in central Tucson I stayed at the beautiful home of Marion and Jim Hook at the Adobe Rose Inn Their traditional, award winning Bed and Breakfast, is stuffed with eclectic furniture and artifacts from the mix of cultures which typifies this part of South West Arizona.

My daughter and I stayed here during move-in week at University of Arizona. The inn is a stone's throw, and inn keepers Jim and Marion were wonderful hosts. Delicious and hearty breakfasts every morning in a congenial atmosphere. We will be back.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and words. You're so right on about our location. If you need to be on the UA campus, the Adobe Rose is two blocks away.

Jim and Marion are super nice people who make a great breakfast, and will help you with anything in your travels around Tucson. We went to SE AZ to bird, and had a great time using Adobe Rose as our base. They easily accommodated our early morning birding outings with a cute packed brown bag breakfast!
