“The Right Choice!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

I was amazed and so pleasantly surprised by the high quality of my stay with this hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly. My room was fresh, clean and well worth the price. The location was ideal as it was close to downtown, expressway and restaurants. With a noon check out time, I did not feel rushed on my day of departure. The breakfast that they provide in the restaurant has a variety of options and there is plenty of food. You truly feel like a guest, not just a paying customer.

I travel a lot for business. Most hotels have the same generic feel to them. And if you want to eat and have a few drinks, the food is usually generic and the bar/lounge has the standard fare of beers.

The Royal Sun is different. As soon as you walk into the lounge, is feels like you are in a familiar place. A comfortable atmosphere with a very friendly staff. The food is excellent. Local, hand made desserts. Local craft brews on tap. You can tell that this hotel is committed to being just a little different and ensuring you have a wonderful time during your visit.

The location is also great. Located just north of downtown and west of the university, there is a ton of things to do in the area.

My husband and I choice this Motel because it was convenient for where we needed to be the next day, we thought the cost would be to high for our budget but it wasn't because you get a full breakfast in the morning. We found the front desk staff to be very friendly and accomadating to our requests. The wait staff at breakfast was friendly and my coffee cup was never empty, they greeted us at the door.

My wife and I stayed a total of 7 days here. The location was ideal for getting around a city which was unfamiliar to us. Easy access for wherever we wanted to go. The employees at the front desk assisted us by 'googling' us printed maps of local destinations. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds - plenty of room for storing luggage, golf clubs, etc. The free breakfast was at an actual restaurant which almost adjoined the motel with 10 different menu items instead of the usual continental fare. The price varied from day to day, but was always under $100 because of our extended stay!

Chose this hotel based on price and location. We stayed for 6 nights. We arrived by rental car from Phoenix with easy access from Interstate 1-10. We received a warm, friendly welcome from the reception staff. The overall service was excellent. Breakfast staff were efficient. The breakfast was free between 06:00 to 09:00. The menu was varied and portions were good. The room was spacious and comfortable. The cleaning staff were accommodating if you wanted more free coffee or other services. The pool area and outdoor space was well designed with lots of flowers and plants. The 2 for 1 drink vouchers were a nice bonus - limited to 2 per day. The bar staff were friendly - sorted out my WiFi on my new phone. Karaoke night on Thursday was fun with locals and tourists joining in. It was a 10 minute walk to bars, shops and restaurants on 4th Avenue.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are a bit more private than the lower floor.

I booked this place based on other Trip Advisor comments. I booked on the second floor so there would be less people walking by the room. There were outdoor tables and the pool ( which looked nice) but may have caused more traffic outside the room. Room was suitable but paper on the floor ( dropped by housekeeping?) . I pulled back the bedsheets as I do in every hotel room, to find a long black hair in the bed ( housekeeping?) but what turned my husband off,was the cup of coffee he was served the next morning at breakfast with lipstick still on it! The police were also there picking up someone dropped off the night before for a DUI. Next to the hotel is also an empty lot ( not much of a view out the bathroom window) on which a transport trailer spent some time, generating some noise while parking. Would I stay there again? I might..room was fine, breakfast included was really good and it's pretty central. The front staff is also very nice and helpful. I did hear the train at 5am but only because I was awake ...not enough noise to wake you up, and only one homeless occupant at the park across the street.

It wold be very difficult for any Best Western or any other chain to top the friendly, accommodating service that one receives at Royal Sun. The setting, the staff, the amenities are wonderful! I highly recommend this BW for any guest in Tucson.
