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.
- 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
