Next time we will stay at the fiesta room due to traffic noise at the tejas room. Great location to unwind and recharge. On site restaurant is a hit. Perks include meal coupons. We will be back again everytime we visit Tucson. Gloria was very hospitable

Very cool little place to stay. Will gladly stay here again if in the area. Very clean and comfortable room.Felt more like staying in someone guest room than a motel. A little on the eclectic side which I enjoy as a change from the normal hotel / motel setting. Restaurant across the street was great. Service a little in the slow side, but looked like they were short staffed. Quality of the food made up for the wait.

We stayed at Cat Mountain Lodge at the beginning of our trip and then again at the end. What a beautiful place to rest your head and enjoy the southwest surroundings. The rooms were very well appointed and the outside areas were just gorgeous. I would highly recommend staying here if ever you are in the Tucson area. It is conveniently located to many Tucson attractions, yet when you are there it feels like you are miles away from the hub bub of the city.

Probably the best place I have ever stayed ! The grounds are unbelievable! There are 2 different areas. Walk them both! The landscaping and the decor are unsurpassed! Immediate, fantastic, attentive check-in. Even got a tour. The rooms are all incredible. The beds, pillows, and blankets are to die for !!!! I'm going to 4 more hotels on this trip and I'm afraid they will all let me down after this. Do not pass this one up !!

This place would get my vote for its decor and landscaping alone! What fun pieces of art, inside and out. We enjoyed a morning cup of coffee on the back patio overlooking the mountains and watching the birds. It was the perfect vacation morning. The room was perfectly comfortable, but the rest of the place was so inviting that one hardly wanted to stay inside. Breakfast at the Coyote’s Paws is across the road, which isn’t ideal, but it was delicious.

We hadn't stayed at the Cat Mountain Lodge before, but we will definitely be back again and again. It's now the only place I'd stay in Tucson. On the edge of the Tucson Mountain Park, this location was so close to many of the attractions and parks we wanted to visit while in Tucson. It's was a stones-throw from the Arizona Desert Museum and the Saguaro National Park (and also Old Tucson, but it had closed down before our visit, hoping it will reopen some day!) We are a family of 5, and finding a place that accommodates three teens and a Mom and Dad can be difficult. We booked the Sierra Madres suite and there was plenty of rooms for us all. The quaint, southwestern charm of this place cannot be understated. We loved the private cactus garden right outside our doors, and having breakfast in the Coyote Pause Café, just steps away from the lodge. There is an observatory behind the lodge, Spencer's Observatory, and we were able to book an astronomer for an evening on the last night of our stay. For two hours, our star guide used an amazingly cool robotic telescope and regaled us with mythology, stories about working as an astronomer and showed us so many constellations. It was definitely a wonderful way to end our stay at the Cat Mountain Lodge. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed at Cat Mountain with our dog this past week. The Lodge and Inn is at the base of the Tucson Mountains, a cool retreat from downtown. The decor and grounds were decorated in early southwest themes, desert landscaping and colorful art. Our room is wheelchair accessible, and also suitable for bed transfer with hoyer lift, which is very unusual for hotel beds. Many of the rooms are dog friendly with a small fee. We were very comfortable, enjoyed exploring the grounds. The complex includes Coyote Pause Cafe, and 1 meal/per person/day is included. The menu is southwest/American, open for breakfast and lunch. Dogs are allowed on the patio. Also, there is a trading post with unique clothes, housewares and souveniers. Had a wonderful time and will be back.

What a beautiful little hotel in such a great location! Hotel is located outside Tycson and right near the west side of Saguaro National Park. It's surrounded by gardens and trails so I got up early, walked a trail, and saw all kinds of wildlife: kestrals, rabbits, coyote. The room and facilities were immaculate and very comfortable. There's a beautiful indoor courtyard with garden & hummingbirds - so precious! Service was great, I got in late but hotel staff were great communicating and leaving good instructions for getting into the hotel. Loved the community room with water and hot drinks! And the Coyote Pause Cafe was excellent, I highly recommend breakfast or lunch there! I really loved this hotel, beautiful, peaceful, clean & comfortable and I'd stay here again in a heart beat!

Hard to describe this quaint oasis in paradise! We felt like we were in Old Mexico. We saw so much wildlife, a gorgeous red coyote and too many birds to count on the feeders and in the trees on the walking trail. Juanita the tortoise came out and we got pictures of her eating pink and yellow flowers. The Coyote Pause Restaurant is awesome! Beds are very comfortable and it is so peaceful there. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. We fell in love with Cat Mountain and we already made reservations for April and January with more to come.

We stayed in the Oaxaca Suite for a 4 day family reunion. The family took over the Inn and we all loved our uniquely decorated rooms. The common area with coffee, cookies, a large shared fridge and sofas and tables was a wonderful gathering place. The long shady verandas provided a place to rest, chat and look at the beautifully kept native plant gardens. Kerrie and her staff were warm and helpful at every turn. The setting is very quiet and restful, and the Coyote Pause Cafe was great for brunch or breakfast.
