“BNB (bed no breakfast) instead of B&B”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The room and house were very clean, but don't expect a breakfast like you might be used to at other B&Bs. It was help yourself with very little to choose from. English muffins and cereal or you could cook what you wanted yourself. For the price I thought for sure there would be a traditional B&B breakfast like I've experienced in other B&Bs. While we were there our bed was never made or towels picked up so we did all that while we were there. Not sure we'll try it again.

ctutor1, Owner at Inn at Civano, responded to this review, July 23, 2012
Thank you for your lovely review. We would like to thank you for noticing how clean and efficient we run our Inn. A couple of notes for your review; our summer rates are reduced by more then half to accommodate our visitors to our community, who are usually visiting their young children or the children are visiting their grandparents. We charge a huge discounted rate, but this rate does not include daily service and it also does not include full breakfasts. (But a full breakfast could have been purchased when a visitor makes a reservation on our reserve page. $15.00 per person per day, served at 9am each morning. ) We do include a DIY continental plus breakfast of muffins, fresh fruit bowl in season, along with strawberries/raspberries and blue berries in the fridge along with milk/juice and greek yogurts. Cereal consists of our signature local organic Granola by Two Groovey Sister, a wonderful granola that can be mixed with a variety of hot or cold cereals. Staying at our Inn is a treat during off season because most of our visitors have the whole wonderful home to themselves and can enjoy their vacation in a beautiful environment. Sometimes our visitors share the home, but love to meet new and exciting travelers from around the world. Again, thank you for your comments, we always appreciate well thought out responses. Mare Smith, Innkeeper

We had out of town guests coming to visit and the owners of the Inn at Civano were incredibly helpful in accommodating them within walking distance of our home. Lovely southwestern decor, absolutely spotless and relaxing. Best place for guests in SE Tucson, in my opinion.

This was our second stay at the Inn at Civano. My wife and I visit Tucson every year to see our young family who live in the Civano neighborhood. We just returned from a visit and we stayed in the Cordova Suite. It was very nice (quiet and nicely furnished) and very roomy. In 2011 we stayed in the Dakota room, and found it very comfortable too.

We generally like to move around a bit and experience new environments. We extensively researched the east Tucson area and found few alternatives and none that seemed worthy of swapping for the nice comfortable stay at the Inn at Civano. We like the common space in the house and the convenience of a fully operational kitchen. So...we will enthusiastically rebook for next year.

We especially like the location. We like the neighborhood since we can walk to our relatives house. We like getting our daily exercise walk in the neighborhood which seems like it was designed for walking. It is an interesting walk yet peaceful without traffic noise or hazards. It is an easy commute to the airport. And it is close to many attractions like Saguaro National Park and the Air Museum. We did not want to stay downtown and commute back and forth daily.

Travelling is often hard work and feeling one has arrived home and being able to kick back, enjoy a clean, spacoius and beautifully appointed home away from home with all possible requirements covered, is a real treat. The Inn an Civano offers all of this as well as peace and tranquility. I'd recommend the Inn for anyone interested also in experiencing how a green village really works. We loved wandering through the zeroscaped and treed streets looking at the sensitively New Mexican inspired architecture with the dramatic back drop of mountains and hearing coyotes howling at night!
The hosts were generous and thoughtful and well liked by locals also who see the Inn as a real asset to the community.

Room Tip: The Cordoba room was palatial!

I'm not much of a writer. But, I wanted to leave a review because I thought the Inn at Civano was a treat for my wife and I. The inn keepers are very helpful and tried to make our stay pleasant. We have been to Tucson before and always marvel at the flora and fauna. This community is well landscaped.

The Inn is very clean and has all the amenities. Lots of art, history, reading materials, and even cable TV, if you have no imagination.

We didn't have time to do any walkies, but the Saguaro National Park is very close and we saw plenty of bikers/hikers.

The October time of year was cooler, and some plants were flowering.

First time to Tucson and I could not have picked a better place. The community of Civano is real gem. It is a lovely place to rest in an otherwise very large city. The proprietors of this establishment are extremely gracious and accommodating. It felt like home shortly after my arrival, clean well-appointed rooms. Easy access to major freeways and other parks and amenities. You can't go wrong here. Beautifully landscaped back patio to enjoy. Loved it and I am returning again in November.

We travel to Tucson often and this was the frst time we visited this inn. We usually stay a little more outside of town *in* the desert itself, but this was a great option, especially in the heat of the summer. The home was lovely, the bedroom (Cordoba) large and airy, with a HUGE bathroom - spa tub, separate shower, separate toilet room and large walk-in closet which served as a dressing room. Nice help-yourself continental breakfast choices, plus a full kitchen and dining room if you wanted to make meals and eat in - with lovely pottery dishes and all utensils provided. The home has a fully functional computer and printer in an upstairs alcove, a laptop in the living room, and wireless throughout - all free.
It's in the CIvano community, mere steps from a great fitness center you can use at a very nominal cost, you also have free access to two swimming pools and tennis courts; there are also yoga, massage and spa studios, and a bike shop. A great place to stay for anyone (and I told the owner Mare that the photos online don't do the place justice, it really is lovely.)

Room Tip: Corodba is the largest - a family may want the Dakota and Cordoba together, they are both upstairs...
