“Stayed twice, may try the Hampton next time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Here is what we liked: the beds, the pillows, the pool and the hot tub. Grounds were clean, room was reasonably clean and the front desk help is wonderful. Big ol' new flat screen TV but of course, crappy cable input.
This is not a cheap motel and they advertise breakfast with the room rate. The first time we stayed they gave us a coupon to stroll next door to the Hampton for a hot breakfast buffet. It was great. This past weekend the "breakfast" was in a small room off the lobby. It consisted of orange water, coco puffs or lucky charms, white bread and the winning touch? Coffee, but No cups. you were welcome to drink it out of you coco puff bowl. Incredible.
Our son goes to school in Tucson, we will be frequent visitors but will look for another place to stay if the breakfast deal isn't worked out.

Room Tip: Parking lot level rooms are a little nicer.

It was once great. Yes, has character, and the remains of original decorative SouthWest extravagance. Those were the days, long ago, when the sheets and towels were new and the rollers on the patio doors still worked. Modern touches have been added, small microwave works if you just keep pushing the start button, and a mini fridge which really works: froze all of our food. Service seems to be a one man show, but he was friendly and worked hard. It seems this is a place for the economy choice on tour selections, but note there are no discounts. But, hey, if you are from back east and want to play out west, go for it, it's not a chain. Note: There are dogs. The grounds are well kept but very small to share with large dogs. Best thing there: Magnificent specimens of rock and minerals. Dont miss the framed photo above mantle in the lobby. If available the casita is worth the extra. Note, handicap rooms do not have balcony. Night shy is magnificent with the city in the far distance and the dark Tucson night sky has stars, so get a room with a balcony door that opens.

Room Tip: Casita does not have road noise but will have outdoor "music" until about 9.

We were there for a wedding and we wanted to have more space and the casita offered the space we wanted with the small kitchen type area. There was a queen sized bed and then a fold out couch. It was close to the pool and the restaurant. The breakfast is a joke, coffee and packaged danish & muffins. So basically it is not breakfast! The food was very nice at the restaurant but they did not serve breakfast. The price was great as we were there just before the rates went up. It is a bit warm as the AC is placed in the wrong place had to move the night stand for better air flow...and open the door in the back at night. Would stay again if ever in Tucson again.

This was a lovely surprise. The hotel has such character, with hand painted bathroom sink, hammered head boards, lovely big balcony, free wifi - nice hot breakfast and best of all the swimming pool. Really pretty, large, deep with a water fall, pretty lights surrounding it. I felt like I was in a resort.

Room Tip: Select one overlooking the pool.

My husband and I stayed a few days with our dogs. The room was nice and big -- tile floor and king size bed. The breakfast was next door at the Hampton. Walking next door was ok with me, but the food was horrible. They always ruined the eggs with some kind of meat. The coffee wasn't good. I'm glad that our room had a fridge and microwave, because I couldn't eat the breakfast there.

If it wasn't for the crappy food, I would have given a higher rating. They also need to add Animal Planet to their TV listing. And clean the bugs out of the pool and hot tub.

Room Tip: Try the south rooms on the floor where the parking lot is.

LaPosada has a great location and facade, but that's about all. Our room was suffocating with no opening window and no bathroom exhaust fan. Jose at the front desk is a class act, but that doesn't make up for a poor property

This is our home away from home when visiting family in beautiful, sunny Tucson. We enjoy staying in the ample size casitas, but standard rooms have similar amenities and cost much less. We stayed three wonderful, quiet nights.

Our casita was clean and very nicely decorated in a Mexican theme. The bathroom was large with a walk in tiled shower. The sink was also beautiful and should be seen. Big, thick towels. The bed was comfortable. Coffee maker, microwave, frig., and sink in all rooms.
Magnificent views of the Catalina mountains with the bonus of a beautiful sunrise greeted us each morning while we sipped coffee from our courtyard. Most rooms have either a balcony or courtyard that also have this view. Wildlife and birds are abundant for viewing. The court yard and landscaping is pleasant. The pool and hot tub were clean and very warm, perfect for relaxing on chilly winter days. Towels were always available.

The front desk staff, Christopher and John are friendly and helpful. Upon check in the coffee maker, hair dryer and toilet were broken; when reported they were fixed promptly.

Wii fii is slow, but free. On-site Parking is complimentary, and a shuttle is available if needed. The exercise room Is small, but well equipped.

Banks, restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. Highly recommend Jax Kitchen, 1.8 miles down the road, for a great dinner and Margaritas, not cheap. Chef Alisah’s a GREAT Bosnian restaurant is directly across the street from La Posada; If you like inexpensive Mediterranean food this place is not to be missed! Miguel’s is the on-site restaurant, but we did not eat here because we encountered rude, uninviting, unprofessional service, twice from the bar tender, Randy. A happy hour is offered, but the Margaritas were very sweet and not very strong. We went across the street to another restaurant, Margaritas, for tasty, strong, cheap Margaritas.

The Hampton inn and Suites, there sister hotel, is next door where complimentary breakfast and guest computers are available. Breakfast items are plentiful : Eggs (prepared differently daily), make your own waffles, hot, fresh oatmeal, great coffee, an assortment of teas, milk, juice, cold cereal, biscuits, toast, bagels, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. Yummy!

I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay at La Posada again.
