My family and I just stayed in this hotel, and we had a great experience. It's in a convenient location, and the price is very competitive -- you can't fairly compare this place with a 5-star ranch resort.
The rooms are all suites with separate living room and bedroom, a bathroom, and a tiny kitchenette with microwave and mini-fridge. There are three sinks -- one in the bathroom, one outside the bathroom, and one in the kitchenette. The two double beds are modest-sized, but they were clean and comfortable. Overall, the suite felt pretty big even with 2 adults and 2 kids sharing it. We had no problems with the cooling system, noise, or maintenance.
The staff is extremely friendly and laid-back here (in a good way), and the cleaning service was great. They had a nice outdoor pool and hot tub, which we used. Free breakfast every day went beyond continental with hot food and a waffle maker. You could also get free coffee, apples, and cookies throughout the day. Parking was a breeze, but then again, this was Tucson.
All in all, I can highly recommend staying here. Sure, there are also some great vacation rentals in the area, but if you are going the hotel route, give this place serious consideration.
