I have stayed at this marvelous B and B probably a dozen times over the past twenty years. It had been five years since my last stay, and I was comforted, but not surprised, to find the standard of excellence still going strong! Paul and Mark continue to provide an artistic, immaculate and welcoming abode near the University of Arizona.... More

Nice location. Across the street from a park. Convenient to U. of A. Very nice property. The home is spacious and has been well restored. The desert landscaping in the yard looks great. Our bedroom and bathroom were spacious and had a large balcony overlooking the garden and park. The room was well appointed with a comfortable bed. The hospitality... More

Beautiful landscaping, great hosts, very good breakfast, altogether an excellent choice on a quiet street near UA. Note that TripAdvisor confuses the Catalina Park Inn at 209 East 1st street with the Catalina Inn on N Oracle Road, be careful, I notice some incorrect entries on that site, which comes up first.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Thanks as well for bringing to my attention that a couple of reviews intended for our inn were posted to The Catalina Inn on Oracle. We often get calls for that motel (usually very late at night!) Even our best friends call our in the Catalina Inn. What can you do!... More

We had a lovely 3-night stay at the Catalina Park Inn. This B&B is nicely located within walking distance of downtown and lots of places to eat. Mark & Paul were perfect hosts. They were genuinely welcoming and contributed to interesting and convivial conversations at breakfast. The breakfasts were delicious. Our room (East Room) was cozy and well-appointed, and the...

I was tempted to not write this review because Catalina Park Inn is so terrific and I want to be sure there is always a room for me! But, Mark and Paul are such impressive and wonderful hosts that I will do the right thing and report that this is an outstanding bed and breakfast - the best I've ever... More

Well the previous guest reviews were correct.....this is a wonderful place! Mark & Paul have created a beautiful home away from home for their guests complete with everything you could ask for in a B&B and more. The home is very inviting and comfortable with an obvious attention to detail. Everything about our room was great from the comfy bed... More

This was our first stay at Catalina Park Inn. We look forward to returning. The entire facility is a class act…Mark and Paul have created a beautiful haven for travelers. Mark met us at our arrival, and explained the "lay of the land". We stayed in the Oak Room, which was very nicely furnished, and has mountain views. It's one... More

Thanks for your wonderful comments. We appreciate you taking the time to post them. Believe it or not, we buy our mattresses at Costco! I can't tell you how many guests comment on how much the liked the bedding. We have "sold" a lot of beds for Costco. Sheets, too! More

First off, the breakfast's are first class and the location truly is the best. Mark and Paul are equally as good and my stay at the Catalina Park Inn was extraordinary. This is not a hotel so pardon me for not commenting on the amenities i.e. hotel but as a B and B it's first class!

Thanks to Mark and Paul for a most enjoyable two week stay. They are the perfect hosts - most helpful and caring.

We inducted you into "The Perfect Guests Hall of Fame" because you were just that! We really enjoyed your stay and had such fun talking with you each morning at breakfast.
