Very convenient and welcoming location for work at UofA. Jim and Marion are thoughtful hosts, rooms are comfortable, and the breakfasts a real treat. Conversation around the table is engaging, sometimes with a cross-section of academics and tourists from around the world.

We travel extensively and stay almost exclusively in B&Bs in price range $175-250/night. We stayed at the Adobe Rose Inn for a few nights earlier this year. It is centrally located for activities in the Tucson area. It is nicely decorated in a Southwestern style and has some unique character. The hosts, Jim and Marion, are very pleasant, accommodating and... More

We are delighted to know that you enjoyed staying at the Adobe Rose and would stay with us again. Welcome to the long list of return guests. I enjoyed baking dairy free breakfast pastries for you and it was fun having you review the new recipe I tried. Thanks for the positive recommendations. Southern Arizona is very dusty when the...

I have often stayed at the Adobe Rose -- alone or with my husband -- when traveling for business or for pleasure. It's always been great: wonderful hosts, delicious breakfasts -- including gluten-free and other options -- and a truly welcoming atmosphere. The Inn itself is beautiful, well maintained, and centrally located. Highly recommended!

It's always a pleasure to see you and your husband. I am so pleased that you enjoyed our gluten-free breakfasts . Thanks for trying our scones made with olive oil. Your chef husband's evaluations are important to us and we're glad he approves. See you in a few months. More

This is a very nice b and b....but keep in mind it is in a residential neighbourhood. If you have a car and are planning to do day trips then it is perfect. You are close to the university which is very nice for morning or evening walks. The hosts, Marion and Jim, are wonderful and the breakfasts are so... More

We're so glad that you enjoyed the breakfasts at the Inn. We are located in residential central Tucson which is a short drive to literally dozens of world class hiking and biking trails. We're delighted that you had the opportunity to enjoy the UA campus. It is lovely and a great place for a stroll. You can also walk to... More

Marion and Jim were outstanding hosts for our 10 day stay. They supplied us with all the information we could use with brochures and directions. Each breakfast was different and excellent. Breakfast conversation was stimulating with people from all over the country and some related to the University. We were in the Casita; it was comfortable and worked out perfectly... More

We feel very honored by your kind words and can't tell you what a pleasure it was to have you and your husband as guests at our Inn. I'm glad you enjoyed the Casita and its colorful décor which is reminiscent of a Mexican hacienda. I never like to serve guests the same breakfast twice during their stay and am... More

We stayed here for an overnighter in early March. After reading the reviews and seeing the photos on line all I can say is….when were those photos taken??? The positive is that it is located in a convenient location near the University in a historic neighborhood that boasts some great old homes, some remodeled and updates, others not at all.... More

Yes, actually you did miss a lot. Guests continually tell us that they enjoy staying at the Adobe Rose Inn for many reasons. Our breakfasts are phenomenal. Not only do we serve delicious breakfasts but we have interesting guests at the breakfast table. For example, while you were here we had an astronomer applying for a faculty position at the... More

We had the pleasure of staying with Jim & Marion March 6th. Unfortunately it was too short of a visit as we fell in love with this lovely B&B. From the pre arrival communication to the in depth tour given to us by Jim, it was a first class experience. We stayed in the Atanacia Room, just steps from the... More

Thank you for your kind words. We, too, are looking forward to your return visit. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the Inn's décor. We've had much fun searching shops in Southern Arizona and in Mexico to find just the right pieces that allow us to be good ambassadors for the Southwest. The majority of art hanging on the walls was... More

My partner and I stayed there for several nights in late February / early March 2014. Jim and Marion were very gracious, welcoming, and friendly hosts. The Inn draws a diverse group of people, including individuals on vacation and candidates interviewing at the University of Arizona. During breakfast, the conversations were always interesting, and the other guests were friendly and... More

I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our Casita. It is a real piece of local history as it was built of adobe around 1938.

We stayed for two days in the Santa Catalina room. Room was very nicely decorated with everything you might need. Had extra blankets and towels, robes, small fridge, microwave and sink.

Thank you for your kind words about the Inn's location and our breakfasts. The Inn is near the University and classes, sporting events, theater, dance and museums are within a short walk. I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfasts. We always try to use fresh, locally grown food to make the breakfasts especially yummy! More

My boyfriend and I stayed new years eve. We really enjoy B&B's and this was no exception. We loved staying here. The inn was beautiful and cozy! We instantly felt at home once meeting Jim.

Happy New Year! I am so glad that we were able to recommend places in the area that met your needs. We always laugh and tell people that part of our job is to "eat our way through Tucson" so we can recommend the best restaurants. Tucson has so many lovely places to hike or just stroll.
