This was our second stay at the Catalina Park Inn, and we looked forward to it. The very comfortable and well appointed rooms, the beautiful artwork (inside) and the desert garden setting outside, and the delicious and creative home cooked breakfasts and snacks are really wonderful. But Paul and Marks' hospitality truly make the stay extraordinary. They're informative, chatty and... More

I stayed at the Catalina Park Inn October 12-14, 2014 in the Cottage Room. The Catalina Park Inn exceeded my expectations. What I liked: It's a 15 minute walk to the University along well-lighted streets - I felt very comfortable walking back alone after dark. After a hectic day, it was wonderful to relax on the patio outside my room... More

What a great time we had for our first experience in Tucson. We were so lucky to find this charming Bed and Breakfast. To say we felt right at home is a understament. Wonderful rooms and the food was excellent. If you get a chance to stay there you are the lucky ones. Thanks again Mark and Paul friends forever.... More

We just came back from a Parent weekend at Univ. of AZ. We stayed at the Catalina because I love to stay at B&Bs when traveling. The place was beautiful, spacious, welcoming, warm, and great food. We really enjoyed our stay. The common area was bright, and very comfortable. Yummy oatmeal raisen cookies were on the table as we arrived... More

We stayed in The Bower Room and loved it. The bed was wonderful and the room was very spacious. I loved the desert landscaping at the Inn. And breakfast was great! Thank you, thank you. We would be very happy to stay here again.

Paul and Mark are so gracious; the very best of hosts. We stayed last fall - the weekend of the AZ v. UofO football game. It rained buckets and buckets. The streets became rivers. But this did not matter as we enjoyed our stay in cozy rooms and the most delicious breakfast - with special gluten-free dishes for me! I'll... More

Thanks for your nice review! The "big game" weekends are always fun. Next time you come to town you can take the new streetcar over to campus. There is a stop at University Ave in front of Time Market. It also goes down Fourth Ave to downtown and all the new restaurants. Sorry about the downpour but we needed that... More

We had sworn off staying at B&Bs after several marginal experiences, because they were too quirky and unprofessional, but last summer we had no choice in a small town in Canada. The hosts there were so great that we started to consider B&Bs for accommodations again. We were so glad that we picked the Catalina Park for our stay in... More

Paul and Mark were great hosts. The front and side yard are pleasantly xeriscaped. Inside decor is Victorianesque -- tasteful, but not my preference. Breakfast -- french toast, bacon, and fresh fruit -- was delicious. Our room was on the 2nd floor (east side) and included a roofed balcony with views of Catalina Park. A very nice, one-night stay on... More

I travel frequently to Tucson, and always feel like I'm coming home when I arrive at Catalina Park Inn. Beyond the beautiful art that fills the inn, the exquisite bedding and perfectly appointed rooms, the lovely desert gardens and birds visiting fountains and feeders, and the delicious home-made breakfasts, the hospitality shown by Paul and Mark makes staying at the...
