“House and Garden are so pleasant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Susan has done a marvelous job decorating inside and out. She has a real eye for it. The B & B is located in a very quiet neighborhood, and is of course extremely convenient to University events. The garden is perfect for evening cocktails and a good book! Both Susan and her little pup Lucy are wonderful hostesses.

Room Tip: Susan provides all the amenities I forgot, like mouthwash and deodorant. There was also a lovely ro...

This was my first time staying at a B&B. I was attending some UW Softball games at UA and my usual Hotel was being remodeled. I found the Sam Hughes Inn on Google since it was close to campus. The experience was great and Susan was a very nice host. The garden courtyard is a wonderful place to sit under a tree and read a book. The neighborhood is quiet, the room was great and Susan's breakfasts were wonderful. I was only in town for two days, but the next time I am Tucson I will make sure to stay at the Sam Hughes Inn if one of the rooms is available.

Sam Hughes inn is a very nice and cozy inn, situated on a double lot in the Sam Hughes residential area. It has a very nice large courtyard with trees, fountains and benches. There is a large living room with a wall of books and a flat screen TV. There is also a separate smaller sitting area with a desk for guest laptop. Check in time is advised between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. My daughter and I missed a flight in LAX. I called Susan, the innkeeper, from LAX to inform our late arrival. Susan left the keys at the door with full instructions of everything, without missing any detail. Our room is large, facing the courtyard. It has central airconditioning and local airconditioning if needed. The room is very comfortable with 2 separate beds. Susan is very friendly and helpful. We feel so much like at home staying at Sam Hughes inn. The breakfast is very good, eating together with other guests, chatting and sharing stories.

We had a delightful stay at the Sam Hughes Inn for four nights in March. The room was very attractive, clean, and comfortable. We loved sitting in the peaceful courtyard. The whole house is charming. Breakfast was delicious and substantial. And most of all the innkeeper, Susan, made us feel so welcomed. Everything we needed was provided with a smile. We would definitely come back here.

Room Tip: We loved the room that opens onto the courtyard.

Located so close to the University of Arizona and a lovely, old home. So warmly welcomed by Susan and her precious little girl, Lucy. Very clean, very accommodating. I am an early riser and Susan adjusted the living room lights to come on earlier. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and beautifully presented. The courtyard is so attractive and peaceful. We had a great visit with Susan and in Tucson.

I spent three nights at Susan's and four days buried in the Archives at the University of Arizona--only about a 15-minute walk from the Sam Hughes Inn. There was no need to have a car. The room, the only single at the Inn, was just right. Susan thoughtfully has the coffee pot going for early risers, and her breakfasts set me up for the day. The sunny plaza (it's really larger than a patio) was a lovely, quiet place to read and relax.

My friend and I stayed at the Sam Hughes Inn in mid-February for four days/three nights. Susan is very friendly and makes her guests feel right at home AND is a font of knowledge about the area. Our comfortable, clean room overlooked the very beautiful, peaceful courtyard/patio. The breakfasts were yummy with plenty of coffee available. Looking forward to my next visit!

Room Tip: Book early, she fills up fast!
