“Class Plus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Spent 2 nights here in November and had an amazing time. The room was large, but in need of a face lift. Loved the quiet atmosphere and never felt like it was busy although there were conferences there. We had a private patio and the pool area well kept and clean. The service everywhere was impeccable, you sat at the pool and within a few minutes they brought you cold water. The coffee room in the morning a perfect wake up and the sundae bar a perfect end to the day. The food at the restaurants was amazing and well priced.
It was a wonderful time and if ever was in Tuscon again I would go back.

This is my second visit, and it's as good as I remembered. The inn was built in the '30s and has the feel of an elegant, but warm, old-fashioned resort. Impeccable service, beautiful grounds, and well-appointed rooms. We had a private patio. Quiet. Croquet on the lawn. Complimentary sundaes by the pool. Restaurants and bar are lovely and the food outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Arizona Inn is a beautiful facility. The rooms are private and very quiet with comfortable amenities. The grounds are gorgeous and include tennis courts, a pool with bar, an outdoor Ping-Pong table, a badmitton court and a croquet court! The outside eating area and indoor dining room both have classy atmospheres and the food is delicious.
However, the service is not up to everything else that is so wonderful about this Inn. At breakfast, we had to repeatedly ask for coffee and water refills. At the pool, we had to almost tackle the waiter in order to get his attention and order drinks. One evening, we waited almost 15 minutes on the outdoor patio before being waited on.
We will definitely return and I do recommend the Inn, but be prepared for less-than-spectacular service.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room with a private patio.

This is an amazing, historic establishment, run by the same family since its founding. Beautifully manicured grounds, capable of hosting corporate events, but in such a way that other guests are virtually unaware of the event. Amazing. You can book a small casita with a private patio. Quiet and privacy are hallmarks of the visit. I would give this establishment 4 1/2 stars if possible. My only quibble is sometimes uneven restaurant service; mostly excellent and courteous, but not always. The food is in ample, but not overly large portions and is well prepared. You are short blocks from downtown Tucson; you can walk and take the new Tucson streetcar line. And you are within 20 minutes driving of spectacular parks and recreational areas. The hotel is a gem.

Room Tip: Pick a private casita with a private patio if available.

As a regular visitor to the Grand Canyon State I regard a stay at the Arizona Inn as a treat., There's no doubt this historic inn is one of the top hotels in the state. It didn't hurt my most recent visit that as a repeat guest they bumped me up to a spacious suite. Good food, beautiful gardens, attentive staff and delightful small touches, e.g. the free iced cream social by the pool, both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal at the door and of course the magnificent library.

Room Tip: Very close to the University of Arizona. Graduation and reunion times can be busy. Very reasonable s...

In the course of driving across the country by car, we spent two nights at the Arizona Inn. The room was very large and comfortable - a perfect antidote for the typical motel room. When we asked for ice, bell staff brought a full bag.

While the hotel is old, it is very well maintained. The grounds are spacious and nicely taken care of. The lobby area is old school but functionally up to date.

The service was exceptional throughout.

We didn't visit the pool area but heard that it was nice.

This hotel was built in 1930. It's on 14 acres. At one time it was probably surrounded by desert, but now it's in a Tucson suburb. Same family has owned it all these years. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The atmosphere is wonderful. The room was very comfortable. This is the perfect example of how something that is "old" can be upgraded over time to have the comforts one would expect, but with a classic charm no "modern" hotel can offer. A great weekend hideaway for couples. Restaurant food is good, but pricey.

Room Tip: From what I observed, all of the rooms looked great.
