To be honest some may think my title is a harsh one, however to be fair this was one of the most troubling and complicated motels to have visited. So it all starts when I book through booking.com and had to find a last resort place for the night on my long journey of hotel reviewing. When I arrived I... More

Probably the worst motel I have ever stayed in! Full bed advertised as queen, at 5'7, my feet were almost off the end! Stained sheets, cheap beaten down furniture from the 80's.curtains with holes, shower curtain looks like a drop cloth from painting. No garbage can. Shower head dribbles water. No hot water at the sink. Semi parked outside running... More

We booked room at this motel and it looked better on the pictures than it do in reality. Super outdated and very dark and it smelled like no one had been there for weeks. The bathroom was gross and the shower curtain had mold on it. Would not recommend this place at all.

the motel is a super cute brick-wall construction with many little cottages. We stayed at a big room, with a kitchenette and a fireplace, that is not active. the staff was very nice and I forgot my power cord at the bedroom. they ran to catch me up leaving and returned it to me. very friendly and making sure it...

The buildings are dated but comfortable and homey. Carports, front porches! Roomey enough with the usual conveniences. Excellent service and management eager to please. Comfortable beds and relaxing ambience. Quiet. I'll go back.

We could of stayed anywhere but I chose the Frontier Motel. Reading a couple of positive reviews here and doing a bit of research, I found it to be a excellent choice, spooky even because of the towns history which made it exciting to me altogether. Each cottage is individual and brick with a parking structure connected to each cottage... More

I and my family had went out to Tucson because we had a family emergency. ..Little did I know it was going to be an overnight stay. I had to get a hotel for the night and choose to go with this one. Seemed quite where we could get rest overnight. I checked in the office, smelled of dirty clothes!... More

This is a great historic property! Tucson is what it is, an OLD western town, and this property represents just that. For the age of the buildings, they are well kept enough to get your $30-35 a night stay. However old, they room are clean and everything worked just fine. Satelite TV and free Wi-Fi bring us back to the... More

I stayed at Frontier Motel for a week last March. It has tile roofs and stucco design, and while the rooms were not remodeled, they are honest and the price is cheap. I loved it. I had a view of the mountains and the location is good as well. In fact, for part of the week a film crew was... More
