The property is quiet, grass and desert plants, and once you exit the parking lot and enter the property you don't remember you are in a large city, in the university area. The rooms had all the amenities and an outdoor patio. I asked for a chair and table for my little patio and it was there within a short time.The buildings are desert adobe and the rooms are good size, Mine had a huge bathroom. A fireplace in the corner added charm and I turned up the a/c and turned the fireplace on just for the enjoyment or relaxing with my book.
The bar area was friendly and I had a wonderful snack during happy hour which was a smaller size of a main entree. The margarita definitely had real tequila and was not watered down. The pool area was quiet and clean. I would recommend the hotel to out of town visitors and those in town who just want to relax for a weekend.
