I stayed 2 nights here. Lots of pluses: Excellent suite w/Jacuzzi, reas. price, convenient location, parking, Wi-Fi, newspaper, friendly staff, pool, spa, gym.
One of the nicest places I've stayed in years

Room Tip: Maybe a 1st floor room near the pool if you'll be staying a while.

We stayed for two nights. We enjoyed the pool table and foosball game. Our room was
facing the pool which was a great view. Missed having a restaurant in the hotel but their are
many eating places within walking distance. Had pizza delivered one night. The room was
nice and loved the bathtub with jets. Our biggest complaint was the ac room wall units in
both the livingroom and bedroom. They were very loud and kicked on and off all night long.
Will still stay again.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay here at Varsity Clubs of America Tucson. We are thrilled that you were able to find recreation and relaxation during your stay here and that you will be returning to our resort again in the future. As guest satisfaction is our top priority, our front desk and maintenance staff would have been be more than happy to address any issues that arose from your room such as a noisy air conditioning unit, or looked into relocating you to a more preferable suite had we been given the opportunity to do so. We are very pleased that this appears not to have marred your stay! Until your next visit, we wish you safe travels!

We stayed here twice this month. The first time we had a room facing over the pool area and it was nice, even though I don't like the wall a/c units.
The second time was last week and we got a room facing Alvernon and it was NOISY! The rooms were clean but this trash stayed at the stairwell the entire two days we were there. The first stay we failed to get our requested wake up call. Other than that, and the fact that there is no ice machine on the first floor, I would recommend this place. The first time we stayed we had a very comfortable bed but the second time, not so much.....

Room Tip: request a room facing away from Alvernon

If you are planning to go to Tucson and in particular, events at the University of Arizona, then this is a nice hotel. It has a sports/college feel to it. Located a couple of miles east of the main campus, it has a nice pool and the lobby has a great pool table.

It is a Diamond Resort time share and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are big. My room had a full refrigerator, a microwave and coffee maker. It did not have an oven or stove like many of the other Diamond resorts have. I was able to get a good rate on line. Speedway Blvd. is a busy street but the rooms were quiet. Great value.

We have been staying at the Varsity Club in Tucson for the past five years while visiting family members. We continue to be very satisfied with their accommodations. We especially enjoy the fact that the bedroom is separate from the livingroom and kitchen since my husband tends to stay up late watching TV. I can close the door to the bedroom and get some sleep.

The kitchen area is equipped with the essentials so that you have what you need if you choose to cook your own meals. The bathroom is separate from the bedroom. There is a whirlpool tub which we didn't use. However, the shower was quite nice. I like the fact that the vanity sink is outside the bathroom so I can be putting on make-up while my husband is in the shower. Also a big factor for us it the fact that the beds are quite comfortable. Laundry facilities are available at NO CHARGE which is a definite plus.

What we like best about this hotel is the fact that the day front desk manager and the night clerk have been the same personnel throughout our years of staying at the Varsity Club. That speaks volumes about the type of employer the Varsity Club must be since their employees stay with them!

We like the "personal touch" all of the employees at the Varsity Club give us throughout our stay with them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back of the hotel not bordering on the two busy streets to the east and south.

We stayed at this Diamond Resort to visit all the sights and parks around Tucson. The hotel is conveniently located and staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to advise about places to eat, things to do etc.
The hotel is well kept, however the standard is slightly below what you might be used from other Diamond owned and operated resorts. However we enjoyed our stay very much and you get a lot for your money/points. Since the hotel was not built by Diamond, the studios are much larger compared to other Diamond resorts, as a matter of fact they are like a small version of a 1 bedroom unit incl. a separate kitchen space and a small living room space and a patio/balcony. From there we had a nice view over the pool area. A big thank you to the staff and management there!

Great value for the price! Very good customer service and the place even has laundry. Very close to the University of Arizona which we were in Tucson to visit. Got the two bedroom suite and was very impressed with its size and all the appliances in the kitchen. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
