“good for golfers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

our fancy travel consultant pointed out that this property has been dropped by their group affiliations and several reviews on the site suggest that renovations are in order. thus our expectations were low. we were pleasantly surprised.
while our accommodations did seem dated, the room was spacious including a kitchenette, sitting area, large bath with both shower and soaking tub, balcony overlooking the golf course and facing the mountains. the room was clean and the price was right.
there is a gym, restaurant, and bar

Pros: comfy beds, good prices, close to restaurants and Sabino Canyon
Cons: pool is for lap swimming, average age is over 50

Overall it's a fine place to stay if you're looking for a bed or are an avid golfer/tennis player over the age of 50. If you are young family, you will find it's not the best place for you in Tucson. We ended up leaving early since the pool isn't the kind you can hang out at and let the kids play. Luckily, the front desk manager was gracious enough to refund us our prepaid nights without any hassle.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the croquet field.

My husband & I just stayed here 1 nite having visited tombstone earlier. It is a beautiful resort with all the amenities. Wes at the front desk was fabulous & gave us a special room with an amazing city view. We enjoyed drinks & hors d'oeuvres by the fireplace. Because we had a noon teetime, we missed the brunch. Much to our surprise, the cafe offered a small buffet breakfast with fruit, omelettes, bagels, etc. Our only regret was we could only stay one nite. Lovely grounds & pool and great canyon golf.

Just spent 4 days at the Lodge in room 202. We were later told that this was a renovated room. If so it wasn't much of a renovation. Light fixture wasn't working. Dishwasher never stopped and had to be shut down. Bathroom door couldn't be closed all the way. Wall outlet was defective.
When we arrived we couldn't check in because our room wasn't ready. We were told it would be ready momentarily. 80 minutes later at 4:20 our room was finally ready. We were told that some of the help went home sick. During our stay our room was well prepared one time, poorly prepared one time and incompletely prepared a third time.
The restaurant food, as we have previously found, was super, especially the Italian buffet on Wednesday night. Jon our server was super.
Unfortunately, as others have observed, the resort is definitely showing it's age and the renovation process seems to be moving too slowly to ever catch up. Sad to see this because we have had excellent stays in three prior years. Management was somewhat condescending when I asked about the situation. In their eyes everything is A OK.

Room Tip: Forget the parking lot side and get the most recently renovated room.

The good: People were nice, good food, big rooms, quiet setting.
The rest: To call it a resort is a major stretch. Rooms are very big, basic kitchen, beds are subjective call but we thought we have stayed on more comfortable beds in a $50 a night hotel. Pillows are horrible. Duct tape held wallpaper on the wall in our bathroom. Our room was one the dungeon rooms, one side facing the parking lot and the other a cement dark hallway. The mandatory resort fee is a joke. $24 a day for internet and "tips." Likely the resort pockets the cash. Not a good place for kids, average age is over 70. Pool is set up for lap swimming. There is a tiny shallow pool for the rest of us. They say there is a nightly "turn down service" and ice delivery but it didn't happen a single night we stayed and yes we signed up for it. The ice machine no longer exists because it broke so walk to the lobby if you want ice.
Overall, we would not stay here again. The place is long past it's prime and will be hurting in 10 years judging by the average member age.

Room Tip: Try another place

This is a wonderful - if slightly dated - resort. The room we stayed in was large and had amazing views, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom is large with a grand claw-foot tub. One suggestion - bubble bath, please! Such a great tub and I had to use shampoo for bubbles! Also, the lights are a bit harsh in the bathroom - a dimmer would have been nice.

I ordered breakfast room service late the night before and it arrived promptly and hot! The service was fantastic, but checking in seemed awkward. The man at the desk seemed unprepared for us, if not slightly annoyed.

All in all, it was a lovely stay and I would recommend it, though it seems to cater to an older clientele better.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 229. It's a corner suite with lots of windows and amazing views of the golf course...

We were treated to a 4 night stay by a member. The suite was spacious clean and comfortable. Turn down service was offered at no extra charge which was a nice touch. Located in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains the surroundings were very tranquil offering a relaxing escape. As we were busy with family obligations while in town we could not take advantage of the numerous amenities. Great for a tranquil escape.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the second floor facing the Catalina Mountains.
