I stayed here a year ago and my only complaint was that the hot breakfast was a bit boring being the same very day. And this time... each morning there was a different breakfast meat! I know it seems small but what a nice touch. There were other bits of day-to-day food variety too.
This time we used the hot tub on a cold end of December night and it was great and hot. The room was so quiet. Only nit is that this is the second time that I've been in a room where the switch on the desk light did not work, and was not fixed during a multiple day stay after informing the front desk. Oh if you get there early enough there's hot fresh cookies at the front desk.
Now a warning - and this has absolutely nothing to do with the hotel management. If you go east on River Road watch your speed. Tucson now has speed cameras and there is one as the road curves to the right near Campbell. Locals know about them but tourists don't. There's others in the area - you can google and find their location.
The hotel is in a great location if you like to hike, as it is near the Santa Catalinas. Try Finger Rock Canyon to the view at Loma Linda, or Pima Canyon. Lots of trails around Sabino Canyon which is not a whole lot further and you don't have to drive in the busy part of town. I wish there was better Mexican food in the area but there's supermarkets and other restaurants.
I'll be back.
