“Decent stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was my 1st trip to Tucson and I went with a friend for a soccer tournament at Kino Sports Complex. This was located in a really great area, easy access to the sports complex, I-10, food, everything. I loved the ease of getting around.
The room was ok, my comforter had cigarette burns which was a little uncool but something I could survive. There was a bar of soap stuck to the shower wall that was there prior to our arrival and all throughout are stay, wish they would have cleaned that. Maid service is very diligent but comes a bit early (arrives at 8 AM) so if you want to sleep in make sure you put your DND hanger out. Staff was all very nice, no real problems. This was not high end by any means but it worked for sleeping. Never did make it to the breakfast so can't say how that was.

Thank you for taking your time to review our property. It is very convenient to many Tucson attractions and just over a mile to Tucson Electric Park. Please accept my apology for the bed spread. I will make sure housekeeping discards that one. We will be updating our bedding package with all new bedspreads this year. We just re-carpeted 25% of our rooms in late Feb. Thanks again.

Stayed during gem show so the $125 we paid for a terrible room was a waste. The room was clean, but we only knew this because the entire room smelled like toilet bowl cleaner. We booked through hotels.com and when we arrived they only had smoking rooms and one handicapped non smoking. We took the handicap only to discover the joys of sleeping next to the vending machines. I felt incredibly safe (not) with a security guard with a maglite patrolling the perimeter as if he were looking for someone. The room is outdated, the bed sucked, I definitely didn't put my bare feet on the floor, and the front desk staff was slow. I wouldn't recommend it.

Thank you for rating our cleanliness as clean, we strive to provide a clean environment. Our normal rates are a very fair value but during the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show almost all Tucson hotels are sold out. Finding a room can be a challenge. Relative to many properties during this period we are still a fair value. Booking the Gem show early is highly recommended and we offer very good rates for advance bookings for the show. I will look at our ADA rooms as I don't have your room # to check the bed. Our beds are usually rated well. If we need to change one out I will make that happen. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Room had a unique odor. Had to go to the front desk to get the extra roll of TP. The tube TV brought back memories, but very few present day channels. The towels must be the new "green"; so small and thin it was take next to nothing to wash and dry. It was very easy to track exactly what the couple upstairs was doing.

I am sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We did re-carpet 25% of our rooms after your stay. We provide value for a fair price but during the Tucson Gem & Mineral show the demand requires higher than normal rates.We apologize for the towels and TP issue. Thank you for your comments.

I stayed here for the night, I just needed somewhere to crash. It was your average motel. No complaints, but nothing special. It was clean, bed was comfortable. A little bit outdated. Didn't have any of the 'breakfast', it was just bad coffee and packaged pastries.

Thank you for your comments, we just changed coffee companies and are working on the breakfast adding fruit, oatmeal. I will look at the pastries again.

The room was clean, the bed firm and the hotel was quiet. It's nothing special. The staff knew nothing about local attractions.

Room Tip: Their "continental breakfast" consists of donuts.

I was there on business at a time when prices are at their peak. If you spend one night there at usual prices, it would be fine. But 5 nights there at peak rates, well....it was clean, but shabby and sad. Breakfast was tired: ordinary coffee and a doughnut with pink icing. The staff did their best. Don't stay on the ground floor as the guest/s above will keep you awake regardless of how quiet they are or try to be. In short, at usual rates for one night - sure. Other than that, keep trying. In hindsight, 3 stars was generous. I think 2.5 is closer to the mark.

I've been staying here about once a month for years. The staff has always been very friendly and accomodating and I feel quite at home. Love the convience of the fridge and there are plenty of TV channels including HBO.
