“Friendly BUT NOT CLEAN”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We live locally in Tucson but were having some remodeling done on our bathroom, we had NO SHOWER at home, so decided to rent a room to take a shower. I called the office and the gentlemen was very nice, HOWEVER we were gave a room that HAD BEEN USED, AND WAS NOT CLEAN!!!! The beds were all messed up, the sink was dirty, and the shower was disgusting!!!! I was afraid to touch anything!!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

I stayed at Frontier Motel for a week last March. It has tile roofs and stucco design, and while the rooms were not remodeled, they are honest and the price is cheap. I loved it. I had a view of the mountains and the location is good as well. In fact, for part of the week a film crew was there, filming a movie. Imagine visiting Tucson in the fifties... here you are. But do not expect plush and expensive, go elsewhere for that.

Room Tip: choose a room that faces East, the sun warms you the minute you step out the door, even in winter
