This hotel is a moderately priced option on the avenue of motels along Tucson Blvd. Because we are Best Western Rewards members and booked through their website, we found a fairly low rate with AARP discount and then were upgraded free to a suite when we checked in. This included two rooms, each with its own flat-screen television and bathroom. The non-bedroom side was spacious and held a sofa, coffee table, and round table with two chairs. Lighting was adequate. The mattress was very comfortable, even for a person who has been having some back trouble. Decor was basic, with muted colors. The sink was integral with the bathroom, and featured a spacious countertop, which appeared to be granite. The shower was more than ample; in fact, this hotel could benefit from installing low-flow showerheads.
A negative is the lack of microwaves in the rooms. When I asked the front desk about this, the agent said that microwaves were available for guest use and they would have one sent to the room, which indeed arrived soon after. The most positive aspect of this hotel was the professional demeanor of the front desk staff. The women on duty checked us in efficiently and with a genuine smile and were helpful with the microwave issue. We did not use the breakfast room as we left early for our flight home. For dinner we walked to Valencia Rd. to one of the fast food places, a bit of a walk but not overwhelming.
