The web site does not make some things very clear about what kind of a room you will get, I was disappointed. The room i got was spacious the bathroom small. My friend had trouble with her room as well. Finally after a lunch with friends when returned the desk clerk understood the problem and did what should have been done earlier, changed her room. My problem got fixed as well. Heading back today and will try a different class of room and see if it is better. A big shout out to Nick and Serena for being very professional and doing all the right things. Great employees are such an asset to a hotel.

The Deluxe King Room may or may not have the fire place and couch with pullout bed, depending on whether you get there early. But don't worry! They'll charge you full price no matter which version you get.

Just completed a three night stay at Lodge on the Desert. We loved it! Great accommodations. Our king casita was awesome. It was clean , comfortable and quiet. Our room was next to a great cactus garden. It was near the back of the property however the grounds are easy to navigate. Cielo’s was fantastic for dinner and free breakfast. The breakfast options were delicious and fresh. The staff throughout were super friendly. The Lodge is conveniently located. We made it our home base as we explored Tucson and the surrounding area. We look forward to our next visit.

A very nice place to stay in Tucson. Not your normal hotel with great grounds. The only issue we had is that housekeeping knocked on the door early in the morning and we asked them to come back. We came back to our room at 6pm and not service had been done. Pretty disappointing.
