If it seems to good to be true, it is. I got misled by the price and decent reviews, but I don't know what the people who say it is nice, comfortable, etc. are thinking! The room was tiny and dark. The bathroom looked like it had been worked on but the floor looked dirty. I'm not sure if the... More

The location is what made me stay here: it's very close to downtown. But: It was noisy because there was some sort of athletic event where the contestants woke up at 5:30 AM on a Sunday. The desk manager was not friendly: she refused to give us a AAA discount even though the hotel is endorsed by AAA. Yeah, a... More

Very nice and comfortable, clean, and well maintained motel with the most helpful and friendly staff that anyone could ever ask for. They went far beyond what you would expect, to offer you complete satisfaction while staying there. Very affordable. I would definitely stay again when in Tucson. Thank you staff!

The hotel exceeded all pur expectations. It is clean, quiet, and well maintained. Above all, the hotel manager was helpful and friendly. A nice touch was a simple contraption that kept the curtains from flaping over the a/c.

VERY nice motel facility & convenient to get to & from for Tucson, AZ activities (or just a stop for the night).

Very clean place in an OK location. Looks like the rooms had been re-furbished recently - everything was new and worked, the 'tick-list' (Wi-Fi, breakfast, a/c, en-suite, etc.) was all there. No complaints at all - why pay more!!

A genuine american motel, owned by a nice family from India! You get incredible much for the relatively small amount of money you pay: A quite large room with two king size beds.

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.
