We came down for my niece's graduation. My brother's family have stayed here several times, this was the first for me. The location is perfect, the rooms are charming and comfortable as are the common areas. We had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful rear courtyard. Breakfast was delicious too - all in a lovely, inviting setting.

Nightlight in the bathroom, reading lights on both sides of the bed, bottled water, paper plates and napkins in the microwave, every toiletry one could need, two luggage racks - all of these details are indicative of the excellence of Susan's hospitality and friendship - and, of course, the fabulous breakfasts!

Mike & Frieda, I think I had more fun than you did. But I'm not sure I can live up to this fabulous review. I'm really pleased that you were happy. You "have" to come back again. Thanks so much for all the great things you said and for being perfect guests as well. Susan More

We spent 4 days/3 nights at the Sam Hughes Inn. Located on a non-through, eight block, quiet section of East 7th Street, the inn is only 2 blocks from and well within walking distance of the SE corner of the University of Arizona campus. It's also just a few minutes east of historic downtown and the I-10 freeway (to head... More

Thank you Paul & Ellen. I'll never forget being challenged to work around cheese as an ingredient. You were fun guests and I'm so glad you enjoyed your first B&B experience. Susan More

Charming rooms, and an equally charming hostess. I was here for a week of hiking the mountains in the Tucson area, and wanted something other than the standard hotel stay. The bed was comfortable, the room well kept, and the breakfasts were great. There is no doubt that I will stay again, next time I am in the area.

We have stayed at this pretty B&B for a number of years. Susan always makes us feel very welcome and she readily accommodates our vegetarian needs. Her warmth, and the lovely quiet of her home, which she generously shares, make our stay in Tucson truly enjoyable. The location is good, especially if you combine this stay with another place closer... More

Thanks to Melinda & Jo for their years of faithful repeat visits, for their company and conversation, and for writing another lovely review four years after the one in 2011. It's nice to know Trip A. keeps records. Susan More

I've stayed at The Sam Hughes Inn more than a half-dozen times, and I've stayed in all four of the rooms. The rooms differ slightly in size and feel, but are all quite comfortable and just what I need in a room. The rest of the Inn is delightful, and it's easy to feel right at home there. The breakfasts... More

Hi Fletcher: I did the math and you've been coming here for 8 years. Tempus Fugit. I like to think we are friends now and not just host and guest. Always a welcome addition at the breakfast table and a very low maintenance visitor - like having my brother stay (if I had one.) Thanks again, Fletcher, for all these... More

Spent a week at the Sam Hughes Inn. The property was beautiful, beds comfortable, food delicious. Conveniently located to tourist attractions and the university. The inn keeper Susan was very knowledgable about the area and such a fun person to stay with.

My husband and I stayed at the Sam Hughes inn for a week, escaping New England's winter and found Susan's inn to be an ideal place. It is located in a nice neighborhood, near the University and convenient to the many outdoor places we visited. Susan is very thoughtful and helpful without being intrusive (the perfect combination for a B&B... More

I was in awe when I saw so many Excellent reviews for this place. As we also offer great lodging at another Arizona location, I know how hard Susan must strive to keep such high standards for so many travelers coming through, and she did not disappoint! For all these great reviews, there are many, many other satisfied guests who... More

As soon as I stepped into the place, I fell in love with it, because of the sweet little dog Lucy!! Haha, I greeted her even before I said hello to the innkeeper Susan. Both of them are wonderful hosts and they made my husband & I feel completely at home. The place is so lovely! We love our bedroom,... More
