Stayed here with my son on the way from Phoenix to New Mexico. Came because of the electric car charger. Delighted to find at least a 40 kw solar system on the roof, newly remodeled rooms, non-wasteful soap in bathroom, and a comfortable, quiet night's sleep. Great price, too!

The innkeepers were marvelous: we enjoyed chatting with them, and they did me a big favor afterwards, by helping me recover an item I had left in the room. We send thanks again to them for that kind help, and hopes that they and Tucson are doing well in these strange, coronovirus times.

Nice update since my last visit for University of Arizona Parents Weekend 2018. Needed a little dusting but other than that I was VERY Pleased! Great Shower Pressure and Comfy Bed and Pillows! It is close enough to University of Arizona and to the Freeway.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this place.They are in a transition (hopefully, they are mid-way and not completed). The style of the hotel is going from an older motel to...either euro-chic-something or a porn set. It's not just an upgrade, it's a 180 into left field. Modern metal room numbers and different color pastel doors are set against old brick. For what they charge, I don't expect to haul my own luggage up to the second floor,though. (Front desk said $170. they charged me was cheaper than their online price, but LOOK! TripAdvisor has it at $120.) The Post It note on the vending machine at the bottom of the stairs threatens that it is only for hotel guest use. A solo washer and dryer wait awkwardly in the second floor hall. There is no note of assistance if you need quarters or soap. And then, BAM! There's the room. I was assaulted by an LED light strip on a fuschia painted wall and overpowering air freshener. Not a good room if you are sensitive to migraines. The other room lights are industrial overkill in terms of brightness. Toiletries are in larger bottles, affixed to the walls. There is a painting of a cobweb of yarn that is the focal point of the room. If I look at it long enough, I don't know if it will put me to sleep, or give me nightmares. And the glitter-infused faux marble counter tops that don't match top it off. While it made for review-writing fun, I will stay somewhere else next time.

Stayed here for one night. Our room matched the on line photos to a tee. Loved the décor especially the white and blue tile bathroom which had a double shower head and lots of sunlight. Bed was very comfortable and the room smelled clean with no chemical fragrances (to which I am sensitive to). Really appreciate that there was no carpeting. Vinyl wood flooring which is easy to keep clean. Excellent quality TV and good WiFi reception. Motel grounds were very clean. Managers of the hotel were very nice and accommodating. CheckIn/Out seamless. We did not check out the continental free bkfast so cannot comment on that. We will definitely stay here again.
