“Beats Holiday Inn Express- Hands Down!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

My wife and I recently stayed at this property during our relocation. We found it exceedingly nice for a budget price. Extras such as cookies at the desk, morning newspaper, a hot breakfast where you can even make your own waffles, and an afternoon hospitality period (wine and beer) made it a very pleasant stay. Staff was very accommodating, a very well maintained pool, reliable wifi, and a comfortable bed.

This place was great! Staff was professional and very helpful and friendly. Lady in the breakfast area was doing table visits to make sure that everyone was doing ok and had what they wanted. When have you ever experienced that at a free hotel breakfast? Rooms were clean and the suite was great since I am traveling with kids I got the TV in the suite and they had the other in the bedroom. Pool area is great and well maintanied. Good location, easy trip into town in 20-25 minutes. Lots of places to eat nearby and banking and gas are close as well. For the price they are charging this hotel is a hidden gem. I changed my reservations at the last minute from the airport comfort inn due to a few reviews about things being stolen from the rooms and I am so glad I did. Will stay here anytime I am in the area.

The Quality Inn & Suites on North Oracle is far enough to the north of town to actually be in the suburb of Oro Valley (or so said the deskclerk). But the price was right, and the property turned out to be a very nice place to overnight at while attending a convention in town. The hotel has external access to the rooms, which was okay with me. The room I had on the 2nd floor was smaller than I expected, but quite satisfactory for one person. Everything was neat and clean. A/C worked fine, though seemed a touch noisy -- again, no problem for me. Bed included the smaller, square pillows that some hotels seem to be preferring these days. That's fine.... Hotel's wireless guest service worked fine and on the first try. The cost of the room was quite acceptable: under $75/night and included breakfast. The meal room was cheery and provided ample seating for guests (including some tables outside for those wishing to break their fast 'al fresco'). The breakfast was ample and varied and allowed me to skip lunch without a problem.
It's a 400-meter walk to the nearest gas station for snacks or drinks. There is a grocery store only a little further beyond that on the far corner of Oracle Rd. and Ina Rd.
Overall, despite the 20-minute or so distance from downtown, I was very pleased with this hotel and will certainly keep it on my shortlist for next time I'm in town.

Room Tip: Consider a room on the north side. This is far away enough from the traffic noise on Oracle Road, a...

Convenient to the north side of Tucson and fit my budget for this trip. My room was clean, comfortable, and quiet (which I was concerned about because I had a corner room by the stairs). Check-in and -out was quick and easy. The breakfast was fair, which is how I feel about almost all motel breakfasts. Even though the weather was great for swimming, I didn't try out the pool; which looked well maintained. I opted to golf at the nearby par 3 (Quail Canyon). I would stay here again.

A little more expensive than Red Roof but worth the money. Helpful staff. High thread count sheets made bed extra comfortable. clean room. Nice breakfast and Wall Street Journal complimentary. Would recommend to fellow travelers.

I decided to stay here with my family last week due to the decent reviews on tripadvisor, the price and their location, but I regret my decision. For starters, our sheets were dirty! I will spare the details of what I saw on the sheets, but immediately contacted the front desk and they sent housekeeping over to change everything. Although the sheets were changed, it was too late as I was disgusted. Luckily we were only there for two nights. The rooms definitely need updating and their only air conditioner was located in the bedroom which made the separate living area extremely hot as the cool air didn't reach. I do not recommend this hotel and suggest you stay somewhere else.

This motel is really nice looking on the outside and in the courtyard. We had a suite, which gave us two rooms with a TV in each and a door between. Good cookies at the desk.The rate was pretty low, too. But...there were lots of little things that were annoying we would not stay there again. The desk chair had a broken arm. There was a fan in the wall between the rooms that constantly blew air from the bedroom where the HVAC unit was into the sitting room. It was noisy and could not be turned off. The HVAC unit cycled rather deeply so the room would get warm and cool a little more than most rooms we've stayed in.There is no access from the northbound side of Rte.77, so you have to go past the motel and make a U-turn. This was not terribly difficult, but it was a nuisance. Shower regulation was difficult and, once regulated, could change temperature on you rather quickly at random. Guess someone else was affecting the water flow. Lastly, one day we came back from sightseeing to find the room had not been cleaned. When I asked about it at the desk as I picked up more towels and toilet paper, the clerk said she's make a note to housekeeping. No apology. Breadfast was OK.
