At check-in the front desk attendant was enjoying her friends company, i wish i could have friends at work. next...restroom fan broken...additional door lock missing. no big deal. But the next day, we had a furry visitor running from the restroom into the closet. I ordered my room without a MOUSE. my daughter saw it, ran and jumped onto a... More

The only reason it gets a "poor" not "terrible" is because we actually spent the whole night. Staff at check in was more interested in chatting with her "visitor" than checking me in. Pool was dirty, and the spa jets didn't work. This place needs a SERIOUS MAKE OVER. Half the signage says "Quality Inn" (Thought this was a Clarion?)... More

I have stayed in a lot of hotels, this was the worst. Carpet was dirty, bed had hair , toilet did not work and worst of all no water for a shower. I have never asked to speak to management, but I did this time. Of course he/she wasn't available. I was told I would get a phone call by... More

Uncomfortable beds, dirty carpet, noisy AC, not enough towels for 3 people,lack of variety in free breakfast, dirty towel, and dirty bathroom. We had already made reservation and did not have another choice but to sleep here on our way to Mexico from Los Angeles. Although customer service was great, the room was just not comfortable or cleaned at all.... More

Hotel staff was very nice and did a great job keeping the team on the same floor and close to each other. They even made sure we had the room with an adjoining door so we could keep an eye on the girls. The breakfast was okay they just need to keep it stocked better. Downside rooms do need an... More

I thought Clarion was a premium brand? NOT HERE! The hotel is located between the highway and a railroad track. There are several hotels in the area, including this one, with sub 40 dollar prices. My wife would not stay after seeing this place, it is frightening in several ways. Dirty, hot, I have no idea where the photos came... More

Clean and comfortable AND affordable. Staff was very friendly. The breakfast was small and the waffle batter was thin but all in all I consider this one of the best stays of the trip. Room was very clean the bed linens were crisp and clean, the mattress was good. Microwave fridge, and inroom coffee.

My husband and were in Tucson for just one night so we were looking for something cheap and this hotel is not in downtown Tucson, it is in South Tucson which is apparently not an up and coming section of town. The lady at the front desk had no trouble finding our reservation and she even gave us an upgrade.... More

Good price and a.c. worked well in the August heat, but the t.v. did not work and the carpets in the building were filthy. Don't take your shoes off! We did not stop for breakfast, but you get what you pay for.......

I just stayed here with my boyfriend this past weekend. We really liked the hotel, the rooms were nice and customer service was good. We had a non smoking room, which means no smoking in the rooms, obviously. They have you sign something that states you will pay 50 dollars if you do, which is normal. Well apparently that means...
