“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed there four nights in November. The place is clean and well managed. We also enjoyed the full hot breakfast. The manager tries his best to make everyone comfortable. It is an excellent location to attend the Arizona Grand Trapshoots!! Hope to return in the Fall again!

Great suggestions by desk clerk for several outstanding places to eat in Tucson. Tried 2 of them and they lived up to their billing. Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was greatly appreciated. Staff was very courteous.

Our family gathering was enhanced by the staff's congeniality and responsiveness, the 'at home' comfort and cleanliness, the quiet and convenience and the full and flavorful breakfast. The strategic location for the airport, city and countryside eased much of the stress of travel making
intra-family communication more meaningful. Perfect surroundings!

My husband and I rode our motorcycles to Tombstone then back to Tuscon to see PIMA. We stayed at this hotel since it was close to PIMA and I had the best sleep I've had in awhile. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great.

Usually I don't stay in this type of hotel but only needed a room for less than 12 hours...so decided to save some money based on the reviews being consistent on this hotel being clean.

GOOD
1) The grounds of the hotel were well maintained
2) The lobby area was really clean but was like walking back in time over 15 years ago.
3) James, the night front-desk manager was very friendly & helpful.
4) Cookies & water was available all day & night.
5) The room & the bathroom was spacious, clean, & quiet (couldn't hear the airplanes).
6) The bed was comfortable.
7) There was a microwave & a good sized refrigerator in the room.
8) Wi-Fi was free!

BAD
The reasons why I could not rate this hotel higher is because
1) The linens (towels & bath cloths) were thread-bare
2) The pillows were small & didn't provided much support, & pillow cases had seen better days.
3) The breakfast was nourishment (bland & didn't offer that much variety as stated by the reviews),
4) The water pressure in the shower on a scale of 10 was a 3.

OTHER
1) The touch-up paint all over the walls was very noticeable.
2) Loose floor tiles in the bathroom
3) The television, microwave, and the refrigerator were positioned in the wrong location. To view the television from the bed & the desk was awkward.
4) The windows shade had a few tiny holes in them
5) The workout area (broom closet) leaves a lot to be desired.

The hotel has a lot of potential and "screams" to be updated into this century.

OVERALL...I would recommend this hotel to the budget conscience who needs a clean place for a quick, overnight stay.

Hubby and I stayed here for a night as we were in Tucson for 24 hours for a wedding. We would've preferred to stay at the Doubletree down the street, but since the in-laws were here, we opted to stay close. They wanted to stay here because it was less expensive than the Doubletree and included breakfast, but for $10 more and having to venture out for a Starbucks, I think the Doubletree would've been much more worth it.

PROS - Ample parking. Fresh cookies at the front desk, lending library for books, friendly enough staff. Breakfast is complimentary as well. Also, though you're close to the airport, you don't hear the planes.

CONS - Breakfast was not replenished, so it was slim pickins' when we got down. One bagel, no bowls out for cereal/oatmeal, no more batter for the waffles, etc. Also, staff was not as friendly down here as at the front desk.
- Huge bed, but for some reason, had a lot of trouble sleeping. Woke up with back pain in the middle of the night.
- Needs updating. Bathroom had peeling wallpaper and moldy edges.
- The hallway was loud. You can hear everyone walking by. Fortunately, there is a door between the bedroom area and the sitting area, which is closer to the hallway, so eliminates most of the noise when you're sleeping. Unfortunately, the glass partition hadn't been cleaned in a loooong time, which was apparent from all the prints, marks, stains on the door and glass. Makes me wonder what else hasn't been cleaned as well. Also, while this eliminated the hallway noise, it didn't help that the AC unit was in the bedroom closet, and it was the loudest thing (I would've preferred the hallway noise and sound of planes taking off). It was so loud that we opted to turn off the AC and sleep without it. Yes, it was that loud that we would've preferred the heat in Arizona over the noise.

All in all, would we stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Tucson? No. I think there are much better options close by that I'd rather explore before venturing back here.
Would we absolutely refuse to stay here again if we had to? No. It wasn't great, but I've stayed at much worse and paid much more.

My husband, daughter and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while in Tucson on April 1 & 2. My husband loved the cookies. I loved the room. Clean and well kept. Staff was friendly, breakfast was ample though standard fare you find at almost all hotels with full breakfast. We did not hear any planes taking off or landing. Nice place to return to after a long day at Old Tucson Studios. We will stay here again when we return to Tucson. (Oh yeah, and the best part of this for us was that these rooms were FREE with earned points through Club Carlson).
