Cat Mountain Lodge was great. We did the two hour observatory and got a full two hours of personal attention from an astronomer. She let us look at whatever we wanted and got to see stars, super novas, galaxies, just to name a few. I recommend doing the observatory for anyone staying. The lodge rooms were huge. Four of us stayed and enjoyed the garden, hummingbirds, and overall atmosphere. Staff was great and we have nothing but praise to say about the place. Breakfast vouchers were more than adequate for a huge breakfast at the Coyote Pause Cafe which was within walking distance. I read the reviews before we went and everyone was dead on. The lodge did allow us to bring our 5 and 8 year olds and the 5 year old claimed the "fancy hotel" was the highlight of his trip. Easy commute to Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Saquaro National park Visitor center. Had movies in the lobby (no kid ones) you could get any time.
