“Good hotel for a quick getaway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights. The check in was quick, and the lobby was ok(desert decoration,sofas etc.).
Our room was the 220, first floor, last room. The rooms are fine,it had everything we needed,plus a terrace(the view was to golf camp and to the maintenance hall of the hotel,but the central rooms have pool views). The ac was very old,and it was working fine, but it wasn't cooling well.
The breakfast was average: eggs, potatoes, pastries, fruit, yogurth, granola, cereal, coffee, tea, juice, milk.
*My friends loved the salsa.


PROS:
The beds. I think ours was new matresses,they were perfect.
The view from the breakfast terrace. It was an upper terrace, with pool views.
The pool. Was a larger and prettier than normal hotel pool.

The staff was friendly, but made dumb excuses when our keys terminated early and had to be fixed. The buffet is marginal quality and we ended up going to Denney's which is conveniently located to the south on Hwy 77 as is McDonald's, Red Lobster, and U-Like Oriental Buffet. We looked at the restaurant menu and decided to pass because of the pricing.

Things to know: Room has fridge and microwave with coffee maker. Bathroom has zero counterspace. Granted it is done in tile, but the shower tile grout is stained and needs either a deep clean or updating. For those with small children, there is no bathtub. Only shower.

The pool area is nice, but is not kept stocked with towels.

They were in the process of a mattress change when we arrived. I'm pretty sure that ours was a new mattress. Like a rock with a pillow on top. No kidding.

The professional photo of this hotel makes it appear much larger. It really is smaller and more cozy than it appears. If I came back, it would be in the winter when we could enjoy the grounds.

The hotel is very nice but the staff really impressed me. The hotel check in clerk was great, very helpful. The breakfast hostess was great as well and the food was very good, especially the salsa which tasted very homemade! Our room was clean and neat, had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable! My sister stayed in a Casita which was beautiful. The landscaping was beautiful, flowers and trees everywhere. Would stay here again!

Got here through Hotwire - not my kind of place
Front Desk people are nice!
Breakfast was basic - they raised my expectations when I checked in!
Rated as 3 stars on Hotwire - 2 stars at best

I stay at La Posada frequently and usually I am very pleased with everything particlularly the front desk gal named Beatrice. She goes the extra mile to help you the others are in the dark when it comes to customer service. The rooms needs renovation big time, but I can overlook that for the price and location. I love the casitas but they are in bad shape, except for the beds they are wonderful. As for the restaurant it has super food, the Caesar salad is awesome with grilled sardine and spicy dressing. The bar manager went a bit overboard about my service dog. i could not eat anywhere on the patio, even thought there was not a soul outside as it was in the high 90's. So I ended up going out to a restaurant that has no problem with service dogs on patios.
I will go back but not to the restaurant.

Room Tip: I am afraid if I give a room tip I will not get my favorite room- sorry.

We are staying at the La Posada and love it. It is an oasis tucked in the city of Tucson! It has charm the minute you pull in to the entrance area. Neatly manicured in a tropical paradise like setting. The beds are very comfortable. The Gringo Restaurant has excellent food. We love the relaxed vibe here. Beautiful setting without the huge price tag!!!

Room Tip: The rooms are very nice, but also, check out the casitas for the longer stays! Very nice!

My wife and I wanted to do something fun, relaxing, and new for Memorial day without spending a fortune. We especially wanted a nice pool to stay cool in our dry 100+ degree weather. The nicely landscaped grounds with great views around the nice little salt water pool provided just what we were looking for and had ample umbrellas providing lots of shade. The rooms are very nicely decorated in a southwest/mexican decor, very comfortable beds I should add. As many reviews describe, ask for a pool side bottom floor room if you are not getting a casita, much quieter since it is away from road. The breakfast buffet at Gringos, included, is awesome and the patio views are spectacular. The place made us feel like we were in Mexico and it is right next to everything you need.
