If you are looking for a very special place to stay in historic Tucson, El Presidio Inn B&B is the one. The inn is adobe with a hip roof, has a magnificent courtyard with majestic trees, gorgeous plants, a fountain and many wonderful places to sit and enjoy the view. Our rooms were lovely, well-appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts started... More

We spent 4 nights here on our first visit to Tucson and would certainly recommend this beautiful B&B for anyone. The rooms are very nice; we stayed in the Gate House which affords a private entrance. It's very comfortable and quiet with a refrigerator and stove if you wish to do some cooking, but you certainly don't want to miss... More

This is the gold standard for B&Bs. A beautiful property, ideally situated, a wonderful hostess and great food. We will definitely be telling all our friends about this one and encouraging them to visit Tucson and stay here. Patti makes your stay very comfortable - little touches like snack bowls in our room that were refilled each day; a breakfast... More

What a great way to start the New Year. The location is wonderful for wandering around downtown – close to museums, parks, and great places to eat. As always, Patti is the perfect host and determined to ensure that your stay is enjoyable. Her breakfasts are outstanding and bountiful. You won't leave hungry! We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit and... More

The Inn is in a lovely 19th century mansion built in the Spanish style around a tranquil courtyard and located in the historic downtown area of Tucson. Our room was comfortable with all the little extra touches such as good reading lamps on both sides of the bed, lots of towels, and lots of information about Tucson. Patti is very... More

We stayed for three days at Patty's place and loved it. Beautifully appointed and filled with everything a traveling body needs, including wonderful breakfasts! The courtyard, even in the winter rain, was lovely and the location in a historic block with the art museum seemed perfect. We will come again.

My husband and I live not too far away but we like to stay in Tucson occasionally for concerts, and we love to stay with Patti. She is a warm and cheery hostess and an excellent cook. Breakfasts are always a treat, and we particularly love the spiced pancakes with lemon sauce. This time we had eggs baked with prosciutto... More

My husband and I took a last minute stand-by trip for hiking in Tucson on New Year's Eve and weren't able to make lodging reservations in advance. After calling several b&b's, Patty, the owner, was the only one to answer and accommodate us. Our bedroom was very comfortable, clean and charming. The house sits on a quiet street convenient to...

Stayed one night to attend a nearby music festival. Patty was a very kind, helpful, and accommodating host. She went out of her way to make our stay extra calm and peaceful. A wonderful escape at a beautiful historic home for a couple of local Tucsonans

Patty is a wonderful host, she bends over backwards to help us with our late night arrivals from Chicago, especially when O'Hare delays cause us to be much later than one should have to travel. You're near many terrific restaurants (I love walking to Café Poca Cosa), the trolley and the U of A. Our daughter is just a short... More
