We spent 2 wonderful nights at the Lodge On the Desert. The experience started with Serena at the front desk; when I asked to change rooms her reply was “No problem. What are you looking for?” Just like that we got a room 214, which has a terrific view of Mt Lemon. Love the adobe architecture. The grounds are very well maintained and the gardens are lovely. Cielos restaurant offers world class gourmet dining. Our server, Wes, did a terrific job of listening and then recommending. The Lodge on the Desert will be our go to place whenever we’re in the Tucson area.

Excellent!!! Everything I needed to end a long day of driving: great historic room, beautiful grounds, quality drinks and food. Great value and pets are welcome. I normally don't do reviews but this hotel so exceeded my expectations that I made an exception.

Sadly, this is my first post on Trip Advisor for several months since our travel has been limited due to COVID-19. We are now out in southern Arizona enjoying a bicycle ride with #Bubba‘sPamperedPedalers. Beautiful grounds everywhere and outdoor dining opportunities were easily found at the Lodge in the Desert. We would like to give a special thank you to Wes and Lynn ,wait staff in the Cielo restaurant. A remarkable dining experience. Michael, a manager at the Lodge on the desert was there and seemingly everywhere to make sure that anything the guests needed would be provided. 2 Thumbs Way up! We would love to return to this part of the country again and would certainly stay at the Lodge in the desert

I found this beauty while looking for places to stay in Tucson. I did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised! The place is super clean, beautiful grounds, and super friendly staff! The room that I got was huge, quiet, and nicely decorated… Not to mention a comfortable bed to sleep in!! They offer a free continental breakfast which is one of the best !!! I i’m trying to figure out how I can come back before the year ends! This is now my place to stay in Tucson.
