The main two things this place has going for it is the fact that it is cheap (I got a room here in the summer for less than $60 a night) and the customer service is fantastic. Every staff member always has a smile on their face, the belldesk always greets you when you enter the main lobby (although this was a bit annoying), and they gave me a cookie at the front desk whenever I asked for one (too bad I had to buy the milk.)
The rooms themselves are pretty newly renovated, so they have some sleek decor. The bed in my room had many different pillows so it was easy to get comfortable. The rooms also have 32" plasmas which is definitely a plus, although the channel selection isn't great. The rooms are pretty quiet, although not soundproof. The whole place was empty enough to where I don't think they put me next to neighbors.
The dining on the premises is terrible, that includes both the restaurant in the hotel and the one directly adjacent to it at the Javelina Cantina (although this is a good place to go for drinks), the food was greasy and stale. However, there are a number of dining options within a couple miles that would satisfy pretty much any taste. The Circle K next door is the perfect place to get your hydration (a must in the AZ heat).
There is a decent sized pool (a great place to relax in the evenings) with a jacuzzi, a fitness center, a business center, and a gift shop on the property. There is also a park nearby with a zoo and a golf course, although I don't know why you would want to go outside during the summer in South Arizona.
Overall, this place would be a 5 star property except for the fact the rooms in the far wing appear pretty shady due to the fact they have outside access, which isn't exactly "ideal" in a border town like Tucson. Also, its not very close to downtown, where the real nightlife is.
