“Decent place”
Reviewed December 21, 2006

Booked one night here. The room was clean and larger than I expected. Nice desk, chair and ottoman. Bed was okay. The front desk staff was very friendly. Overall not a bad place for an overnighter. I am sure there are better hotels but for what it is, its very nice. Nothing special but definately not a dump.

  • Liked — Location was great, internet service very good
  • Disliked — nothing really bad to say
  • Tips/Secrets — Close to the university

Carpet in room was absolutely NASTY. Kids had black knees from one minute on the carpet. Room was dirty, nearly all exercise equipment didn't work, and advertised wireless Internet service was nonfunctional. Asked for another room and Operations Mgr. was very accommodating. Given free upgrade to executive suite, which was much better. Discussed the other issues with the Ops Mgr. at checkout time and am confident that he will continue to make the necessary changes to facilitate improvement to the property. He is very professional and seems very determined to improve the experience.

Rooms were large and clean. Good workspace, but internet access was spotty at times. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is in resturant and not buffet. Would not want to live in neighborhood, but close to anywhere you want to go with car. Excellent value for low price.

Very convenient and clean hotel and centrally located. They actually serve cook to order breakfast in the orning at the restaurant. They even have DVD player in room and my wife loved the vanity- make-up mirror. Kids enjoyed the pool and I enjoyed sitting out side by the pond surfing the web, since they offer free wireless high speed internet.

This had an outside corridor, to our alarm, but it was quiet and very comfortable. We had a job finding it, as the Google map was wrong, but is on the main drag and very well placed for shopping and places to eat.

The the time I stayed at this hotel in January of 2006 there was almost no lighting in the parking lot, with large bushes to conceal anyone who might want to hide in the bushes. If anyone is ever injured here this place is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

My room was awful. The floor had dirty watermarks from a mop. There was long female hair (not mine) on the floor under the sink area. I picked up a cup and it was dirty with dried coffee in the bottom. The bathtub appeared to be dirty as well.

When I checked in the clerk loudly proclaimed to me, while a male unknown to me in the lobby stood by, that I was traveling alone. Directions to my room were very poor. My section of the hotel was directly off an unlighted alley.

Needless to say I won't go back!

Large 1.5 room suite with bathroom inbetween. Very clean and spacious. Two 27" TVs, one in each room. That was the good news.

The marginal:

Situated on the border of an older, run-down neighborhood. You better have a car because there is absolutely NOTHING of interest within walking distance, not even a liquor store.

Noisy location as well, sandwiched between a busy street [Stone Rd.] and the UP Railroad [train horns all night long].

The continental breakfast is not self-serve as usually expected from a BW. The breakfast is provided by the adjacent restaurant and you have a choice of Danish, bread, and fruit. The kicker is you have a choice of tea/coffee OR juice, NOT both. At least the service was friendly.

The adjacent bar definitely caters to local [drunken] college students. DO NOT go in there on Karaoke night without ear plugs and don't expect prompt service because the bar maid is often out singing on the dance floor.

DVD player in the room would not eject discs and the remote did not work. At least the desk clerk provided us with a few new batteries, although the remote still didn't work.

Parking access is a b----.

There are better hotels and locations in Tucson.
