“B&B personality with plenty of privacy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2009

We booked the Peppertrees for our anniversary and it was first rate from beginning to end. The owners were personable and professional providing a first rate B&B experience. It was the little extras provided at the Peppertrees that made us appreciate the choice to have a B&B experience over our normal stay at the local resorts.

Location: smack dab in the middle of everything "University". Stay here if you are coming for homecoming, parent's weekend, big game, etc. One of the pluses for us was the relative privacy afforded to you here. The Casitas are arranged around a shared courtyard but each has its own private entrance so stumbling in late or getting up early is not going to be a problem for other guests here.

Food: The homemade iced tea and gourmet lemonade waiting for us in the fridge was top notch and well appreciated after running into construction on the freeway. One of the owners is a Chef from Ny so the food and drinks were all very tasty, homemade and extremely edible. Breakfast is included in the price and we were served (in a gorgeous outdoor garden ) a perfectly seasoned fried egg over a sweet and moist corn (Spoon?) bread . A denser, jalapeno flavored bread added a nice kick and fabulous platform for sopping up yolk, while avocado and tomato chunks provided texture and coolness. The lovely fruit tray and fabulous pastries were a nice way to fill out the meal. The OJ tasted fresh squeezed and the coffee fresh.

Decor: The bedding was clean and comfortable and the Casita decorated invitingly in a very chic Tucson traditional way (sort of an IKEA modern meets Mexican gothic aesthetic). The shower was well pressurized and there were plenty of towels and provided bath accessories to make even this picky visitor happy with the accommodations.

Would recommend.

This is a fabulous place to stay. The room was delightful, the hosts charming, and the breakfasts wonderful. The room had lovely Victorian decor and was spotlessly clean. Everything one might need was thoughtfully provided. The beds were comfortable and the sheets heavenly. The courtyard was quiet, private, and beautifully landscaped. Jill and Ron wre very attentive hosts (and they were very nice when I accidentally took the room key home!). The location is perfect, wonderful little shops and restaurants within walking distance. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. This B&B is definitely a 5 out of 5 and I would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Tucson.

A weekend away with another couple and Peppertrees provided the best location and price for our plans. Situated near the University of Arizona and 4th Ave shopping, it is a haven for shoppers and those wanting a quiet drink and to people-watch. We were impressed with Peppertrees informative website [--] and how quickly Jill responded to our email query. We stayed in the 'Sunrise' apartment which provided ample space and privacy for two couples. There was also a sense of privacy throughout the grounds of the B&B and it was lovely to sit out and enjoy a book (when it wasn't raining!). Breakfast was always going to be the highlight - given Jill has professional training. Absolutely heavenly!

The exceptionally high standard of service and professionalism, whilst still maintaining the warmth of a B&B is a five star achievement. We are already planning our return visit! Thank you Jill and Ron for our very special weekend away.

I live near the Peppertrees in Tucson and reserved the place for my mother and aunt to stay for two nights. I'd dropped by before booking and met Jill, one of the proprieters, who showed me their potential room, which was a gorgeous two-story, two bedroom place with front and back patios. The property itself, even though located right near the university, is grassy and peaceful and quiet. I booked immediately. When my family arrived, we were all thrilled by the little touches -- a plate of fruit and little pastries on the counter in the kitchen, complimentary beverages in the fridge. Jill sweetly invited my husband and I to join my family for breakfast on both mornings. We did and the food was delicious -- organic eggs, delicious fruit plate with a dollop of cream, the second morning had a mini blueberry waffle on the side. My family was utterly delighted with their stay at Peppertrees and I was happy to get to spend some time there as well. Highly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A few steps away from the main gates of the University of Arizona yet when you enter the garden patio, you would think you were in some garden oasis away from everything. The ambiance is quiet and relaxing for being in the city. It's the kind of place you can just wind down at. Walk off the property and your just a block or so from one of Tucson's best shopping districts. There are lots of restaurants, shops, museums and the U of A Presents Theater, all with a few blocks. Then wake up to a breakfast that has become legendary. ... more   less
