My wife and I attended a performance on the U of A campus on a Sunday night and decided to stay in Tucson overnight. I was surprised and delighted to find the Catalina Park Inn had a vacancy. They are well recommended. We stayed in the very large basement accommodations. Large bathroom area was delightfully decorated with... wait for it,... More

We loved our overnight stay at Catalina Park Inn. The inn is located on a quiet street across from a park. We came to Tucson to see The Newsies at Centennial Hall at U of A. It was a nice 15 minute walk from the inn to the theatre. Mark and Paul were gracious hosts. Mark made wonderful croissant French... More

Thanks very much for your review! We enjoyed talking with you and your family at breakfast. Thanks also for the tip about the bathroom outlet. This is something that has never been mentioned and that I never considered. I don't think hair dryers give you as much cord as they used to! We will add an extension cord. Hope to... More

We stayed in the Catalina Park Inn for the second time. Paul and Mark are very wonderful hosts. They allowed us to check in an hour earlier than planned. We have stayed in both the house and in one of the small buildings outside of the house. They are both large and very comfortable. The Inn is within walking distance... More

We enjoyed a March night in the Garden Room at the Catalina Park Inn. Our hosts graciously allowed early access to our room which accommodating our packed evening schedule! A lovely breakfast started our day off perfectly. Thanks, Mark and Paul for your wonderful hospitality.

I've stayed in many B&Bs and I think Catalina Park is probably the all-around best. Great location across from an attractive park and within an easy walk of the 4th Street entertainment and restaurant district. The house itself is beautiful inside and out, beautifully landscaped, and every detail is attended to. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Both... More

Thanks for your great review! We really appreciate you taking the time to post it. The East and West porch rooms are great this time of year: the nights are balmy and there are so many birds singing. Hope to see you again. More

We stayed here during a winter get away trip in February and were not disappointed. Mark and Paul were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were delicious. The room was spacious and clean. We stayed in the west room and enjoyed morning coffee on the large balcony before heading down for breakfast. The inn was walking distance to the university area as... More

I've gotten out of the habit of reviewing hotels, but this B&B deserves a rave review. The attention to detail in the food and accommodation left nothing wanting. We enjoyed relaxing in the peaceful courtyard early in the morning while admiring the xeriscaped landscaping and listening to the birds. We were also glad to be able to walk to such... More

Thanks for your rave review! It is satisfying that you noticed many of the little touches we have added here are there. Our desert garden has had many positive comments recently, probably due to the severe drought in several states. We actually use very little water in our garden considering the size. Hope to see you again. More

Thank you so much Mark and Paul for making us feel like family in your gorgeous home. The home is lovely, meticulously decorated, and the gourmet breakfasts were delicious. The lively conversations around the breakfast table helped us with our itinerary. 5 star all the way!

Gracious welcome from Mark and Paul. Very comfortable rooms and top quality bed linen; sumptuous breakfasts in a most convivial atmosphere; and a superb location for 4th Avenue and downtown. Strongly recommend this charming B&B for any visit to Tucson.
