Based on other TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to book this facility for our four night stay in Tucson from March 10 to March 13. We were not disappointed. We are budget travellers and like to spend evenings out on the town and vacate the room every day to sightsee and/or golf. We see no point in wasting our money on... More

Stayed here a few weeks back due to reasonably good reviews on this website. Older building but remodeled and kept up well--and quite clean. Very good service. Was an extremely good value for the price considering its central location. Only drawback is its location by a city park which seems to attract homeless people. Would definitely stay again!

I keep saying I want to be more balanced in my reviews, but this place was really a find! Extremely affordable, convenient location, clean, great hosts...and really comfortable beds!

This excellent motel has everything you need (nice beds, fridge, microwave, shower, basic breakfast), and nothing excessive, which means you are paying a very fair price. It is clean, modern, comfortable and ideally located for visiting downtown, the university area or anywhere else in Tucson because it is close to the major arteries (Speedway, Oracle, I-10).

We stayed here for New Years Eve so that we could go out on 4th Avenue. The front desk staff was really nice and informative. The location is great because it is only 2 blocks or so away from the bars and restaurants down on Fourth.

We stayed at University Inn while attending Homecoming weekend at UA. It's your typical small two story motel but clean, friendly, comfortable among those in the "affordable" category. It was convenient to campus for our purposes. Decent breakfast and we liked additional amenity that it was adjacent to a small park for walking/jogging.
