We just returned from a 7 night stay at the Varsity Club. This place is really an interveral vacation club that rents its units as available. I wouldn't really classify it as a hotel.
We arrived very late at night and had a little difficulty getting in. The floors in the lobby were just waxed so someone let us in the rear entrance. No big deal since that's were we would have parked anyway. The unit was plenty large for a party of 4 adults. Upon entry there was a small kitchen with full sized refridgerator, large counter top toaster oven with griddle, microwave, cooktop, and sink with a variety of cabinents, drawers, counter space, etc. There were plenty of dishes, cookware, and other standard kitchen items. There was a dining table with 4 chairs. In the same room was a sofa, chair, coffee table, end table, and TV on a stand with drawers.
Off the living area was a door onto a small balcony with 2 chairs and a table. That patio also had a door leading to the 2nd bedroom. On either side of the living room/kitchen were identical bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs.
The master bedroom was large and had a king size bed, large closet, tv, and drawers for storage. The french doors lead to a large covered balcony with a table and 4 chairs.
The 2nd bedroom was not quite as large but did have a large closet, tv, and drawers. It also had a king size bed but because the room was smaller it was difficult getting in/out of the bed on the one side. There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets in both rooms. Both balconies overlook the pool and hot tub area.
The bar was usually quiet, even on Super Bowl Sunday, what's with that? Although we didn't use the restaurant we did order from "Joey Pizza". It was edible in a Domino's Pizza kind of way.
There are free laundry facilities (you buy detergent), a pool table, sizable lounge, and minisclue gift shop. The pool is great, the staff are generally helpful, and were always willing to provide whatever we asked for and made any wrong right almost immediatley. For example, when a vending machine failed they bought the product to our room, with an extra freebie. Noise is usually my pet peeve so I am very sensitive to thin walls or kids running in hallways. Maybe it was just our location, but there were not any noise problems. Peeve number 2 are lights at night. Both the balcony door and window had black out drapes that fully closed in the bedroom. Overall the place was pretty good.
As for it's location, Tucson ain't Manhattan, you'll need a car no matter where you stay.
