“Does the job”
Reviewed November 26, 2006

The Quality Inn (Tucson Airport) sufficed for our needs. We simply needed a place to sleep, no frills necessary as we planned to spend our days elsewhere. We got exactly what we expected.

The free contintental breakfast ends at 9 am, so be up early if you plan on grabbing a bite. If you should happen to sleep in, no worries, as there's a Waffle House, Dennys, and many fast food places within a block or two.

Despite the proximity to the airport, it's far enough away that airport noise didn't affect us at all.

One minor thing- my boyfriend's baggage didn't arrive on his flight so he made arrangements with the airline to have it delivered to our hotel the next day. He alerted the reception staff so they would know to expect his baggage. Around 2 pm we got a call from the airline saying that the hotel wouldn't accept the baggage because he wasn't staying there (even though I included his name on the room reservation). We confirmed the hotel address with the airline and they said they'd try again. Several hours later, we got a frantic call from my boyfriend's mother. Someone had called her saying that my boyfriend's luggage had been delievered to thier hotel but he wasn't a registered guest. (They had called the phone number on the suitcase ID tag, which turned out to be his mother's home!) In any case, my boyfriend called and spoke with the hotel reception staff. Turns out, the morning staff had not alerted the next shift to expect his baggage. Although we were a little bothered by this oversight, we were grateful that the staff made the effort to clear this matter up.

Summed up- this hotel is good enough for a quick overnight. If you're looking for a "vacation" place to stay, go for one of the higher-end places.

We found this hotel to be substantially better than the reviews we read online prior to our trip. Because we were traveling without a rental car, our main criteria was airport shuttle transportation, reviews, and price.

While the price we paid was a little higher than we hoped to spend, we noticed that many of the travel "packages" offered on travel sites such as Expedia.com, Travel.com, AARP.org, etc. included lower priced, lower rated lodging. After being in a slightly higher rated lodging, we were pleased that we didn't try to save the additional money.

All in all, the hotel was very nice. The staff was friendly, the pool and spa area were kept very clean, the inside lobby was clean, the continental breakfast was nice.

We did have a slight housekeeping episode when the staff entered and straightened the room even though the "Do Not Disturb" sign was posted on the door. We were traveling with a lot of medication, as well as a laptop and other items and really didn't want to deal with packing it up every time we left the room. When we showed the staff the "Do Not Disturb" sign, they apparently didn't even know what it said, as they kept nodding and/or shaking their heads, but couldn't understand us when we tried to converse with them.

We did contact the front desk and ask that no one enter the room while we stayed--we got our supplies from the housekeeping carts as they came by and we used the safe from then on.

However, we also noted that when they did enter, they didn't do a good job. For instance, one wastebasket was emptied, the other wasn't. They took used towels but didn't replace them. They didn't vacuum the floor that actually needed it. While it was an inconvenience, we had no other problems with housekeeping for the rest of our visit.

**One Note** This hotel is not the hotel advertised in the airport. When we used the courtesy phone at the baggage area, we were rudely told by the hotel employee that this was not the hotel we were booked at.

I chose this hotel for its convenient location near the airport, as I arrived in Tucson late in the night and my flight was leaving very early the next morning.
Despite other reviews, the room assigned to me actually looked wear-and-tear and in need of complete renovation: scratches on the room door, stains on the floor carpet, "vintage" bathroom...
Also, I wouldn't define the whole building (inner corridors and lobby) as particularly "attractive".
The rate (89 bucks + taxes) is definitely too high when compared to the hotel quality. I wouldn't probably stay here the next time.

Had stayed here in early 04 and would have put this as a 1 star hotel ... ok, but not too clean and worn looking. Just stayed here 3 nights in late June 04. They were renovating... new carpets, painting, some new doors, etc. Much nicer... probably more like a mid level 2 star at this time.

This is about 1.5 miles from airport. Not too much within 1 block, but Waffle House and another small restaurant on other side about 3 blocks away. Area seems safe.

Cont. breakfast was ok, but rather sparce. Did have free USA Today at desk. Only 1 elevator (3 floors) that was not too convenient. They do have a washer and dryer, but in a stair/entrance area.

I did not notice any noise. But TV only had about 8 channels.

Overall, a good 2 star NOW - and ususally can get a good price.

I guess the adage "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here!
The deal we got on this room was really awesome, way less than $50.00 for a Saturday night stay. Was a bit afraid of the area at first, but it's really quite safe. Was quietly snickering to myself when at check-in I was told our "suite" was ready. The room included a kitchenette but was terribly run down. The door to our room did not lock properly and had a large gap at the bottom. This would all have been tolerable for the cheap rate had the management been able to handle the rowdies after midnight until 4 am. This went on not only in an adjacent room but also at the pool. If you can get a Days Inn for under $40.00 instead of here, you'd probably be better off. To their credit, both pool and hot tub were clean (at least when we arrived).

Stayed January 2005
